Subject: Custom content in the 10th Anniversary Speedmapping Contest

Post Posted: 17 Dec 2010, 21:42

This poll will decide the fate of custom content being used OR not in the 10th anniversary contest. The poll will run for 14 days and you can vote for only one option, and you can't change your idea again after pressing that "vote" button.

The options:

1)No custom content - If this option will prevail, you'll be allowed to use only Unreal 1 content. You can't use anything else outside the game's whole package.
The custom content matter will end here.

2)Music from RTNP - The infamous option. If this will prevail, the RTNP music will be allowed into the contest alongside the Unreal 1 content.
The custom content matter will end here.

3)Any content from RTNP - aka Unreal Gold. If this will prevail, any content from RTNP will be allowed.
[RTNP]There will be another poll, which is about allowing Textures, or Scripts, or both. Music will be possibly already allowed, since they don't cause any technical problems to the game.

4)Any content from RTNP and UT - If this will prevail, content from RTNP and UT will be allowed.
The second poll described in Point 3 will happen here too. Same thing will happen for the UT part - which may make the life harder for U227 users.

5)Any custom content - If this will prevail, everything and everything will be allowed, like what happened in the previous contest. As this will (possibly) allow custom scripting too, this may make the life harder on both U227 and UT users, if anyone decide to use both platform for unique scripts.
The custom content matter will end here, or not.

Voted #1 because it's the easiest to abide by and you really probably don't need RTNP music to make a map better. Unreal comes with a lot of great music as it is, and the contest is more interesting if you are severely limited in what you can use.

[Edit] Of course, if RTNP music is voted to win, I'm not going to mind :)

Voted option 2 obviously.
RTNP music doesn't cause any kind of problem, and together with the U1 stuff, it's basically everything popped out from Epic/DE for Unreal.

Also Twilight destroys Dusk.

I vote Unreal + RtNP's music. It isn't breaking the idea of classic Unreal mapping and won't let things get too out of hand, but it will add something a little fresher than the Unreal music which has been heard so much it is burnt into my skull note by note (still good music though).


(Edit) About the other options: I would be perfectly fine with No custom content. Any content from RTNP is just about in the limits of remaining true Unreal and will pass for me as long as someone makes some stuff generally compatible. However I believe Any content from RTNP and UT or Any custom content would be taking it too far, but wouldn't physically make me want to stop entering.

I'd like to start listening to the entire Unreal soundtrack so I can pinpoint the atmosphere I'm looking for in my submission. Could someone post a .zip archive that contains the RTNP music and the RTNP music exclusively? This would likely entail a comparison of a fresh Unreal install with a fresh Unreal gold install (unless anyone has the RTNP cd, which would be great).

Edit: Found a list of the music files, this is what I need:
Title
Return
Inter
Twilight
Neve
Starseek
Moroset
Opal
SpaceMarines
Sacred
Journey
Found99
Boundary
Watcher
Gala
Mountain
Ending
Current Project: Shiv and I are putting some finishing touches on WTFs2. Done soon :)

Opal isn't included as it already comes with Unreal. The game just doesn't use it.
