More Beta Mappage

ElBundee, author of Phasma, and on that merit alone one of the true greats of UTJB mapping, has been playing around with the much maligned DM-KoosGalleon and has come up with JB-Kgalleons. His reasoning is that, if one boat's good, two boats are better. And he may just have a point. Mind, this is another beta, since apparently it's beta season in the JB community. Having said that it looks promising and apparently plays quite well.

Pick it up and tell the author what you think over in the corresponding forum thread

In slightly other news, I just got an e-mail from Rob containing his new work, a conversion of his AncientTitan, already available in many formats. He's asked me to give it the once-over before upping it, so you'll have to wait a bit to get your hands on it. I hope the screenie will hold your esteemed interest until then.

JB-DarkTowers isn't Face

To compare the two would be to insult JB-DarkTowers. DireIce, after a prolonged drought, has graced the UTJB community with a new piece of original work. It's only a beta still, mind you, but JB-DarkTowers is worth your undivided attention even in its unfinished state. The custom death especially is a work of art, although the author seems to think otherwise.

Pick up the map and tell DireIce how much you love it in this thread.

(Oh, stole the screenie from Jail Crew. Hope ya don't mind, Caution.)

New reviews at Jail Crew

Wiz has updated the Jail Crew review database with reviews of DireIce's challenging and original JB-MilitiaThunder and ElBundee's both justified and ancient JB-Phasma. His opinion is that MilitiaThunder is a skillfully executed and original map , while Phasma is one of the best things that has happened to human society since somebody let his milk go bad and dropped it on his tortilla chips. My opinion is that I probably need my medicine right about now.

Look at the pretty Skybox

Well, it's a bit later than "next Monday", as SnowDog so enthusiastically said a while ago, but he's now finally finished JB-Freya][. And quite the work of art it seems too. I mean, look at that Skybox! Also featured are a rather artistic interpretation of Mychaeel's excellent Screens component. Really, considering what you can do with these things I'm surprised not every map being released features them.

Additional features, according to Snow, include, and I quote, "a kick-ass arena, custom deaths, and an Easter egg. You'll find out". Upon asking whether Snow had anything to say to the hoards of fans camping outside his hotel room hoping to catch a glimpse of the superstar, SnowDog donned a pair of dark sunglasses and said "This map took way too much time, so you better enjoy it, I know where y'all live" before disappearing through the back door, accompanied by his entourage of body guards, documentarists, and classy hoes.

Okay, enough silliness already. Download the map and see for yourself.

[Update: Did I say FilePlanet? May be a while before the mirrors are up, in the mean time pick it up here.]
