New Urban Terror starter
I uploaded the new version of the Urban Terror starter software. You need this software if you want to start a game from our server list. It's the same software you need to use servers.urbanterror.net.

Urban Terror 3. Game On!
So far everything is looking good for the release of Urban Terror 3 on Saturday, August 9. We are putting the finishing touches on the release, including building the pak file, and testing it in order to make sure we do not run into problems like we have in the past (think 2.6). So far, the development team is quite excited to get this version of Urban Terror released.

We have begun sending out e-mails and asking FTPs and server admins to join us in channels dedicated to receiving the release early. If you have not received an e-mail, then chances are you were not selected. The response has been amazing, more than 300 e-mails have come in from people wanting to either upgrade or host the files for the Urban Terror 3 release. Obviously we cannot accomedate everyone, but will make our best attempts to get many FTPs worldwide.

Lastly, the Urban Radio release party might be in jeopardy. I really will not know until Friday. At that time we will make the determination as to the status of the show which is scheduled to take place hours before the official release .

As mentioned a few months ago, Silicon Ice Development will be in attendance at Quakecon 2003 in Dallas, Texas at the Adams Mark, August 15-17. In attendance this year, Bladekiller, RabidCow, Dragonne, QueenBee, Miles and Oswald. If last year was any indication of the fun and enjoyment we had, this year will definitely be just as enjoyable.

.def file - Urban Terror Beta 3
Silicon Ice Development has been working on the latest version of Urban Terror that is Beta 3. This new version will introduce some new features to the mod that gamers and level designers have been looking forward to. But for this update, we are more interested in what it is going to provide the level designers.
The release of the entities definition file marks the first chance for the level designers to get a look at some of the new features that will be available in the upcoming release. Some of the new features for levels the ability to make levels dynamic depending on game type, removing portions of the level for better game flow or increasing the size of the level. The entities func_wall and func_rotating_door make this possible. Also several entities have had a game type key added to use them when necessary or remove them when not needed (func_pendulum and target_speaker). There are also some game type specific enhancements.

Capture the Flag has some new features that allow the use of spawn rooms that cannot be camped or entered by the opposing team. In addition, we've added an entity to prevent the use of those spawn rooms as friendly flag carrier camping spots, and ensure that an enemy never survives the entrance into an enemy spawn. Normal Quake 3 func_doors have been allowed to only let a specific team trigger them, and a properly set trigger_multiple on the inside of the spawn room only will help keep players that leave the spawns from coming back in. On the slight chance that an enemy gets into your spawn room, a totally new entity called, Mr. Sentry (a self-targeting chaingun) will quickly make mince-meat of the offending player. Mr. Sentry will also help the other team, and prevent cheesing by friendly flag carriers, as it will also own anyone entering a spawn room with a flag. With a required nodrop brush in the spawn rooms, flags return immediately keeping the game going. Mr. Sentry can also be used in any game type. a little experimentation should turn up some neat uses from the community of imaginative thinkers we have.

Bomb mode has given an Urban Terror entity a new twist. Those func_breakables are now for more than just windows. You can now create breakable things the can only be destroyed by the bomb blast. Forget setting health values for this, just pick a level for the size of the secondary explosions from the breakable, and a type of breakable, and watch it go BOOM when the bomb explodes. Have fun making complete areas get destroyed when the bomb goes off! Another enhancement to func_breakable is new types. Metal and stone can now be broken, and even made breakable only by high explosive grenades and the HK69, or even as specific as the HK69 only! Wood also has the ability to become VERY strong in the same way.

In all, Urban Terror Beta 3 brings more functionality for the level designer to include in their level, than ever before. Soon after the Beta 3 release, Dragonne be creating a few simple tutorials for spawn rooms and bomb breakables, to make everyone's life a little easier when creating them. I hope everyone enjoys what we've done for the mapping scene for Urban Terror in this release. I'm looking forward to see what the community comes up with!

Oswald's Plan Update - What's Coming Up
Damn, it's been nearly three months since my last update. Where did the time go? Guess that doesn't matter, but what does matter is the progress of Urban Terror 3. While there is still not a release date, the fine tuning has begun! It would also mean we are a step closer to announcing a release date and organizing our release party. Currently, we are testing version 36a, but that will probably change within a day or so, as the coders continue to knock out problems on a daily basis. Just awesome to see! I must also give props to Miles and Bladekiller, the screenshots on the web site do not accurately portray the details of the heads and skins. Just wait and see the new shots we have for you.

Heading to a LAN in July in Colorado Springs. The event is called EverLAN. I was invited last year by Everman, the organizer of the event. In the process I also met HornetOSX, Wycked, Tommy and Andrew (Everman) of GeekWearZ. Of course it was the Winter event and the first snow in Springs, just my damn luck. I am looking forward to giving a talk on mods and hanging out with all the gamers.

Also wanna give a shout out to Roger at Planetquake3.net for the interview we did on Saturday, June 21. Unfortunately, due to server issues it was not live, but you can go to UrbanTerror.net or PQ3 to download the 30 minute interview.

Game Mode: Bomb/Defuse
One of the most anticipated features for Urban Terror 3 is the implementation of the Bomb/Defuse game mode. This is a feature that has been discussed going back to the Beta 2 development cycle. Unfortunately, during that time we just did not have the resources to support the game mode.

Like other games that feature a bomb mode, the basic rules will be similar in Urban Terror. The Red Team will always be the attacking team with the bomb, while the Blue Team will try to prevent the Red Team from accomplishing their objective. When the round begins, the bomb will randomly spawn with a Red Team player. Provided they are able to accomplish the objective, they will keep the bomb. If they die or pass it to another team mate, they'll start spawning with it or another player will be selected. This way, if a team has a designated bomb carrier, they'll only have to "pass" the bomb at the spawn if thei carrier did not make the plant in the previous round. If bomb mode is being played outside of 'match mode' then the teams will automatically swap sides at the midpoint of the map time.



Each level will have two plant points (Bomb Site A & B), designated by a pulsating, red bulls eye on the ground. As the bomb carrier approaches the site, they will need to select the bomb from inventory and move near the marker and press the fire key in order to arm the bomb. Once the bomb is armed, it is automatically dropped, with a message on the screen alerting gamers of that fact.

By default, the bomb will explode in 45 seconds if not defused by the Blue Team. Once a defensive player approaches the bomb it will take 15 seconds to disarm the bomb and avert the impending explosion. While defusing the bomb, a defuse bar will show your progress, as there are also tone changes as the bomb gets closer to exploding, followed by an onscreen countdown from three seconds. Both of these times are recommended defaults by Silicon Ice Development, but they can be changed by the server admin through a server side cvar.



Bomb mode features all new code and animations, including a massive explosion, fire and shock wave effect, if the bomb is detonated. The bomb sites are also located on the mini map as red, pulsating markers. Many of the current Urban Terror levels have been updated in order to allow for game play. Some of the levels that will support this new game mode are, Village2, Revolution, Sanctuary, Crenshaw and Druglord3. There have also been updates to levels like Abbey and Casa so you can play Bomb/Defuse.

Urban Terror Server Directory
Silicon Ice Development proudly re-introduces our Online Server Directory for Urban Terror, located at servers.urbanterror.net. This application is actually a series of components working together to bring you this powerful web-based utility. The directory allows gamers to quickly and easily find a game server that meets their fragging requirements. The server list is sortable and can be filtered by several different attributes including gametype, empty/full, and Punkbuster support -- just like the ingame server browser but no refresh is required! Click a server in the list to see its current settings and LIVE status. There's even a graph that illustrates the server's overall activity level!

The Play Now! button allows gamers to connect directly to the game server from the web browser. Current support is included for Win32 and Linux clients. Click the help link below the Play Now! button for instructions on configuring your PC to work with this cool feature.



Perhaps the most powerful feature of the online directory is the player search. Click the Find Players link and enter your search string -- the application will show you a list of matching players currently gaming! This feature is great for clanners -- simply enter your clan tag to find all of your teammates.

Behind the scenes are a couple of applications which make this all possible. A scanning utility checks the status of each Urban Terror server every 3 minutes. The information this application collects is added to the database that drives the server directory. If you run a server and cannot find it in the list, then you are probably not reporting to our master server. Add "master.urbanterror.net" to your server's configuration and within minutes you should find your server in our directory.

Long time Urban Terror gamers might remember a similar application called TerrorStrike that BASiLiSK worked on before joining the development team. This is that same application with new enhancements and features. Check it out! For problems and questions please go to the Website Support & Questions Forum. This link will take you to the thread that has been created to deal with problems client run into.
