School ahead!

Along with a selected few more of what Westwood, creator of the famous Command & Conquer series, calls "the best and brightest FPS modding teams from around the world," we have sent our own representative to Westwood's Mod College in Las Vegas to get to know the engine and tools for modding for their upcoming game Command & Conquer: Renegade.

    The day will be spent learning Renegade's gmax-based mod tools, from the basics of level building, to the more advanced principles of lighting and AI scripting. The teams will have the opportunity to help shape the final direction of Renegade's mod tools before they are released to the public in March.

Mod College's "teachers" will include representatives from Discreet, along with programmers, designers, artists and animators from Westwood. The teachers will take feedback from the mod teams and incorporate it in to the final documentation that will be released with the Renegade mod tools to the general public.

Jailbreak for Renegade? Let's see what Dai has to tell when he comes back from his trip to the U.S. west coast...

Happy Birthday UTJB!

Yep. UTJB is a year old. Amazing, isn't it? What started out as a hobby project has, in the last year, grown into one of the most praised and well-supported mods UT has to offer. For that I thank all of you, but special thanks must go to all the mappers and coders who have embraced and extended UTJB with the wonderful maps and code that make it what it is today. I'm sure that if the mod could make a birthday wish, it couldn't come up with anything better than the crew and support it already has.

On to the progress report. We've bugged the bugs, mapped the maps, and featured the features and are almost ready to go RC1. Just need to update the voice pack, look into some final issues, and work out which maps to include. Give us another week or two. It'll be worth the wait. Promise.
