Up Where We Belong

Team ZpWorld has broken the standing record of the Tallest Ladder Contest not once but even twice within no more than four hours.

No less than 17 (seventeen---count 'em!) players of the ZpWorld team managed to balance on each others' heads; only a few more, and the top of the towers in JB-Face would have been just a tiny step away. Great job, guys. And they've already announced that they're going for an 18-player ladder next... sky's the limit.

Map Double Feature

It has been a long time, since the last new JB maps have seen the light of day. The waiting is over - today we have not only added one, but two new maps to our map database.

The first one (left picture) is a very unusual map, set up in space and built by RevBillyG. The cool rotating skybox itself makes the map worth a download but it has a lot more to offer. Go ahead, download JB-TheEye3 and see it, to believe it.

The second new arrival (right picture) comes from James 'Chezdog' Mclean who converted his very own CTF-Oblivion12 into an even better JB map. Prepare to get owned by the bots in a nice canyon style terrain with 2 different bases and two different capture scenes. Download JB-Oblivion12 now and take a walk on the wild side.

Update: larrystorch already added those maps to his server, so you better download 'em now and make sure to join us next sunday at the MotherShip for another edition of the Sunday Lockdown. Thanks again to RevBillyG, Chezdog and larrystorch!

Prepare for the chair

'Sunday Lockdown' is still alive! Mychaeel has enabled some relics on the mo'ship to alter gameplay a little bit and especially for all betatesters, who like to take care of the issue mentioned in this thread.

So 'prepare for the chair' and be with us at the MotherShip. Check out the brilliant lockdown counter (top of this page - it's hard to miss) for the right time to join.

UT Mod Summit

I am very sorry for being a little late with this news, but it took me a while to become aware of what's been going on 'behind the scene'. As some of you may already know, EPIC invited mod developers from around the world to a UT2003 Mod Summit on June 22, 2002, into their offices in Raleigh, NC, USA. About 24 people from the most popular mod teams were invited to discuss the changes from UT to UT2003. EPIC paid for travelling, hotel rooms and even some of the food. The lucky modders not only had the chance to meet some of the masterminds of EPIC in person (like for example Mark Rein, Tim Sweeny or CliffyB) they also had the possibility to play the latest build of UT2003, plus I don't want to loose a word about the nifty give-aways or the trip to the movies.

Right now you may ask yourself 'why is he telling us all this?' Well, guess who has been invited too (as a member of one of the most promising mods for UT/UT2003). Yes, I am talking about THE member of THE mod : Mychaeel from Team Jailbreak !

For those amongst you who do not believe me, simply check out the links below and you may be able to find Mych on some of the included photographs ... congrats Mychaeel, hope you have had a nice trip and enjoyed your stay at EPIC.

More information and some pictures can be found here and here - check it out.
