Where is Beta 2.6?
Rumors and speculation continue to swirl around the Urban Terror Community about the whereabouts of Beta 2.6 from Silicon Ice Development. As we mentioned in our QuakeCon 2002 Diary, we did release client files for the gamers attending the event in the BYOC in order for some mass feedback. Due to some unfortunate events, the server files were leaked to the community. This accounts for unofficial 2.6 servers up and running. Silicon Ice Development does not promote or suggest you play this leak, as it is about a month old and many of the issues in that build have been resolved.

As for the current status of Urban Terror Beta 2.6, the development continues. We are not going to release a version that is buggy, which would cause us and the community problems (remember 2.4?). At this point in development, we cannot afford it and the community would probably not put up with it. Am I right? Density and TwentySeven continue to troubleshoot issues that the QA Team continues to identify. Some of these issues are things that the coders must attempt to reproduce. Sometimes that is easier said then done.

There are rumors and misconceptions that continue to move through out the community. We will try to dispel those rumors and point out what is fact.

Rumor: "SID is releasing 2.6 when the 1.32 point release comes out." False. We are developing on our schedule, not that of id Software, working on the point release.

Rumor: "SID knows when the point release is going to be released." False. The development, like the community is at the mercy of id Software. We do not know when the 1.32 PR is going to be released.

Rumor: "SID has the new point release." True. We are beta testing the new point release, as are some of the other popular mods that were developed for Quake 3.

Rumor: "SID has set a release date for 2.6." False. We have not set a date. The reason being, we are not ready to give the current build our approval for release. We will continue to say, "Beta 2.6 is ready, when we are done with it.

We are sure many in the community, especially league admins will have decisions to make about beginning their new seasons, or continuing to defer the start until 2.6 is released. As for the gamers hopefully you continue to support the mod and community, as we are doing everything we can, in order to finish the new build and release it. Once we feel we have a complete, bug free build, we will set a release date.

The Minimap!!
Since the release of the new screen shots yesterday, there has been some discussion on the Urban Terror Forums related to these enhancements. Many of these new features are meant to improve the current version of the mod. The new minimap, which can be seen in the screen shots below, include CVARs, in order to allow the gamer to configure it to their preference.


New docks with minimap.

The new cvars include:

-cg_mappos: position of the minimap, zero removes it
-cg_mapalpha: changes the transparency of the minimap
-cg_mapsize: changes the overall size of the minimap
-cg_maparrowscale: changes the arrow size that represents you
-cg_maparrowalpha: player arrow transparency
-cg_maptoggle: allows you to toggle minimap on and off


New Docks again with minimap.

Currently, the minimap is only available in green unless the level designer alters its appearance. In the example show, RabidCow has place a red and blue border around his level, Twin Lakes in order to designate each team's side of the map. Beta 2.6 will include many pre-made minimaps, both SID and non-SID levels. If a level is distributed without a minimap .TGA, then it will be auto-generated by the engine, residing in a q3ut2/maps/ directory. If you modify your minimap .TGA locally, and you connect to a pure server, it won't get loaded, just as if you left it unmodified. If you connect to an unpure server, that file will be loaded for the minimap. If you connect to a pure server, however, it won't be, since it won't be on the pure list for the remote server.

Some of the other features within the minimap should improve teamwork. When a teammate makes a radio call, you will see their triangle (on the minimap) flash. When a gamer calls for a medic, they will flash red. This way it will alert the team medic to a general area where the injured player is calling from. You will not be able to see the enemy movement or position on the minimap. When in spectator mode and not affliated with a team, you will be able to see all the player involved in the current game.

UT opdate
While this update is not a release announcement for Beta 2.6 (yet), it will reassure the community that our work is still nearing completion. We do understand the frustration that some are going through, while patiently waiting for this new version. We have good reason as to why it has not been released yet. The last few releases came on the heels of each other, in order to fix problems that presented major issues within the community. We do not want to make that same mistake for Beta 2.6, so we have slowed down the development and the testing in order to be thorough.


New Docks & Subway with minimap.

This additional time should help in future development and remedy some of the current issues the community has dealt with, since the release of Beta 2.5 earlier this year. I am sure the coders would agree, we are close to a release, but bug fixes and tweaks do take time to work through. As we touched on previously, features such as the movement penalty has been drastically reduced, allowing for more accuracy with the weapons, which have also been tweaked. The entire Team Survivor game code has been rewritten, in order to clean up issues within that code base.


New Riyadh with minimap.

Over the course of the next few days we will show off some of the new features and graphics that have made their way into Urban Terror Beta 2.6. These screen shots will include new and updated levels, such as Docks, Riyadh, TwinLakes and Metro. You will also see the new minimap in action, along with new weapon models and skins. There is probably more to these pictures than I can explain in a single update.


New Docks & ??

Last few items of interest, you might have noticed the PayPal button on our site. This was something the community had been inquiring about for sometime. After a few months of discussion, we decided to offer PayPal, as a way of donation in order to support the mod. This is completely voluntary and you are not required or asked to contribute. The choice is up to you. If you wanna continue playing and enjoying, by all means, do so. If you want to offer up a small donation, that's great. Regardless, we do want to thank everyone for their support. Without a fanbase, the mod would not be where it is today. Reminder, tune into Urban Radio this Friday beginning at 11:30 am PST (1830 GMT)(Danish time 1930) on TsN, the Team Sportscast Network.

Urban Radio Friday 6 Sep. 1930 (Danish Time)
Okay, we WILL have an Urban Radio this week on TsN, the Team Sportscast Network. The radio show will be on Friday, September 6, 2002 beginning at 11:30am PST/2:30pm EST (1830 GMT). This is a few hours earlier than usual, but I need to get out of town and head south on Friday by 1:00 pm.

So I will be on my soapbox to bring you the information we have to help ease the minds of some who are concerned. It should be a good and imformative show. So listen in using Winamp. As usual, Mungo Zen will be spinning the tunes and the Urban Radio will be up and running. Still working on two final pieces, hopefully I get that information before Friday...
