UT Forward - Beta 3
Forward is a simple gameplay reinterpratation of ut2k4, with a simple goal of creating a fun and exciting gameplay experience. The game reinterprets movement and weapons, but also introduces some general gameplay tweaks. While forward is playable in any of the stock UT2004 gametypes, it has been balanced mostly with duel play and clan arena in mind. Go in with an open mind and enjoy yourself!
We have found that due to the different gameplay dynamics, some maps which were unusable in regular UT2004 duel play are quite enjoyable when playing forward! We most enjoyed Grendel-keep, Campgrounds, Corrugation and Ironic. Antalus, Rankin, Goliath, and goose are also recommended.
We've had a blast playing around, and hope you will too. We welcome any sort of feedback you're willing to give.
Note: UTComp version 1.6a is included inside of the file in this beta version, and the forward gameplay modifications can be voted off via the settings page. The mutator you should use is forwardvbeta1.mututcomp
The movement can be best described as bunnyhopping with an unreal twist. There are 2 major additions to the standard ut2k4 arsenal of movement -- Midair Dodging and Bunnyhopping.
Midair Dodging is simply the ability to pull off any of the moves normally available at any point.
Bunnyhopping, is the ability to maintain speed gained by jumping quickly upon hitting the ground. While bunnyhopping, one can take advantage of the terrain, getting height boosts off angled terrain and reorienting their path while sliding on the ground.
These movement techniques can be used together in order to acheive even faster speeds than either of them alone.
The standard ut2k4 weapons have been altered to increase the speed and intensity of fights, and give fights a new airborne element.
Most weapons have been given increased knockback or increased damage output.
The shieldgun has been reworked so that its defensive use is 'earned' by offensive play.
All the pickup times have been decreased to complement the increased speed of movement and the amp is replaced with a mini-keg in duel games.
Players spawn with all weapons, but with limited ammo which can be replenished by weapon pickups.
To maintain the element of surprise, most audio cues during movement have been removed.
Players are rewarded for attempting difficult midair shots. If someone is popped into the air by weapon fire, projectiles are given a damage bonus.

Saxxat från Unrealnorth - bra sida med UT-nyheter som är värd att besökas.
Verkar helt klart vara lovande, snabbare tempo plus mer airkontroll låter nice. Tyvärr har man inte provat det än i dessa helgetider..
Ang. ev whine på brist på översättning så är det faktiskt helg snart!
edit: ny version av betan, hoj.
körde 1v1 UT Forward idag, måste säga att det var jäkligt kul, vet inte om det kan ersätta original dock, fanns ju både plus och minus. Det vart ju mer fart vilket jag gillar men då försvinner också lite av det taktiska som jag också gillar med UT. Vet inte riktigt vad jag tycker om denna mod, måste nog spela den lite mer.
