Good job on that guide! Smiley

There is a hidden translator message in Dig in the lava pool where you have to shoot the button to rise the "bridge" if I recall correctly. It says something like "You are so dead." or something like that. But you should know that you won't survive it as you would somehow have to get back up to the plank before dying.

And you can get that health keg in Bluff Eversmoking when you "help" the crucified Nali on the distant mountain by killing it iIrc.

The message actually says "You are SOOOOO dead", IIRC. Much like the secret translator message on the top of the barn in NaliCastle saying "What the hell are you doing up there ?".

Haha, yeah, that one on the barn was really awesome. Grin
Even though Unreal is quite some serious game it can always surprise you with funny eastereggs - and this shows how much love Epic (Mega)Games have put into this game back then! Smiley

I always forget that early Unreal stuff from epic was done in a partnership with Digital Extremes, so I wonder if that company had any of it's own easter eggs in Unreal or if they were mainly made from epic.

Of course they had!
There is a Digital Extremes logo as a flag texture. Wink
And there was something else, but I forgot what...

Also, if you check one Unreal Tournament map (I think it was Orbital) you will see a huge de logo on the ceiling as some kind of "window". Smiley

There are many more such easter eggs in the original Unreal, you just have to take a close look at the levels. Smiley

Back then each level was made by a single author, pretty much. So it's easy to tell by looking at the authors of levels with easter eggs.

Cliff Bleszinski - Dig, Dug - 5 eggs
Jeremy War - Dark - 1 egg
Shane Caudle - Ruins, NaliBoat, NaliC - 3 eggs

You all know Cliff, and Shane Caudle is from Epic. Jeremy War is from DE, but the egg in Dark Arena shows the Epic address, right? If so, I'd assume that it was added by someone else... Either way, it's essentially only two witty Epic employees doing all these crazy easter eggs Smiley

By the way, if you look at what maps what people have made, you can often see a pattern. Cliff does all the industrial levels. Shane Caudle does all the Nali architecture levels. Juan Pancho Eekls does outdoor areas. Inoxx does sci-fi areas. Eliot "Myscha the Sled Dog" Cannon does everything.

All these easter eggs are small potatoes compared to the secret area in DM-Codex in UT99 : Pretty fly, for a white guy.

Well, it's the most efficient way to work on a game. Like assembly-line work. Every employee specializes on making one little part and in the end someone just has to connect them or they do so during the process.
Let them do what they can do the best to speed up the development. Wink

And eastereggs are always nice, of course they make a game less serious sometimes, but let's be honest, who doesn't have a smile on his or her face when he or she notices one? I recall the Codex easteregg, again CliffyB, btw isn't that sentence a quote from some song? No idea why, but it always sounded very familiar to me...

Oh and don't forget the name of the Vortex Rikers in Ny Leve falls. If you take a closer look at it, you will see that it's another easter egg by Mr. Eekls. He put his name into the number of the prison vessel.

Yes, but they got even more specialised in later games. In UT3, one person would create the layout, another would make the meshes and a third one would texture them. So they gave up listing authors in UT3 maps outright.
