Downloads away!

You really could buy UT 2004 and never get another game and still not run out of new stuff.

Damnation is looking pretty cool:

ooo you're right that's a new one to mention...

they called it like "steampunk fantasy-western"...

Of course there are dozens of full conversion mods for Battlefield 1942 (Desert Combat, Galactic Conquest, etc.). But the non-FPS category in the MSU Contest has really spurred the creativity. Metaball sheesh what a neat idea: " you have to solve puzzles and save little creatures by becoming balls of different properties. "

For Star Wars I wonder about the comparison between Troopers for UT2004 and Galactic Conquest for BF1942...

Star Wars Troopers looks great--apparently you can even pilot walkers! (The 2-legged kind anyway.)

Some comments on that site suggest the project has been scrapped in the last week--I hope that's not the case. But it looks very mature already anyway. (It had versions out before UT04 even existed.)

(BF1942 isn't my thing since I prefer sci-fi to WWII :) So all the REGULAR UT add-ons--maps, models, weapons, mutators, game types, vehicles--have as much value to me as the total conversions. But if I want to try WWII there's always RO :) )

hmm it got me thinking...

i wonder if the MetaBall guys were from the abandoned Marble Mania 2003 mod for UT2003?

Anyways thanks for your Damnation screenshot, it's so funny every time I see it.
