The One - Upcoming 227J mappack in progress...

Hi everyone,

Recently i decided to work on a new mappack for unreal 227J, which i would like to release somewhere after 227J is out.

The One is a small/medium-sized mappack for the upcoming Oldunreal 227J patch, inspired by classic unreal community maps such as Nali Cove, One Day or Tashara’s Cove, utilizing 227J’s latest features.

Welcome to the island of K’tharia, where the Nali have established a peaceful haven free from oppression. Unfortunately the island holds a dark secret, an ancient deity demanding a sacrifice. Unfortunate victims are drawn to the underground, never to be seen again. Unfortunately for you, you are about to become the latest victim…







Currently i put up a moddb page with some info here:
https://www.moddb.com/mods/unreal-the-one

Now onto the development status, it's currently 99% complete, i'm mostly bugfixing and waiting for that final 227J release so i can finalize it.

However there are some things i cannot do alone, and i would love to ask the community for help:
  • I am looking for voice actors, yes there are other NPC's you can encounter, and they are supposed to say things!
  • I am looking for anyone sufficiently skilled in unrealscript who can look at my code and tell me what an awful job i did.
  • I could probably use a tester or two, anyone with some time on his/her hands 227J access would be welcome.


I will update this post later this week with more information, stay tuned!

I'm always happy when I see a map look different and new despite the use of these ancients packages. That's exactly the case here, your architecture is wonderful and I love it already on the screenshots. Great vegetation too, the jungle in the last screenshot is incredible. I'm eagerly waiting to test it.

Looks very interesting thus far.

Is that a female Nali I am seeing in the second screenshot?  Grin

I've tried to retain that feel of the old "vanilla" user maps, after all my inspiration came from playing a lot of custom maps in the past.
Originally i wanted it to be like a vanilla unreal map, in fact i wanted to keep it simple and build everything into one single level. Unfortunately BSP issues kind of pushed me over to experiment more with 227 features like meshes, fogging and emitters.

As for the Nali, I’ve included a few Nali variants, something that kind of bugged me with the original game was the terrible Nali fashion sense. Roll Eyes

Anyway here's a short feature list, i will update the original post to include these
  • Explore the entire island of K'tharia. Visit several locations across the island, with plenty of exploration and backtracking across +/- 5 maps. The island itself serves as a main HUB between these maps.
  • Fight against new enemies, some native to the island and other variants of existing unreal pawns (alternative pawns courtesy of Qtit).
  • Wield a new weapon or two (spoiler: as seen in the moddb video)
  • Interact with several friendly/neutral NPC's; Nali, Human or Skaarj.


Still looking for voice actors if anyone's interested, and otherwise you'll all going to have to listen to me whining to Microsoft SAM  Cheesy

Hi Turbo,

This all looks very impressive, but do you mind to post an update about your Unreal: FireStorm project? I've been dying to be hosting it at my coop server for years now.

Status is mostly the same as it was back when i posted it, but to be more exact:
  • All the maps are done but i am still in the process of personally testing them, it's quite a tedious and time-consuming job. I still have a list of some critical bugs that need to be fixed (doors not opening, boss-fight enemies not spawning).
  • I fixed some critical unrealscript issues since then, i'm a really inexperienced guy to this whole coding thing and i had no idea that the game flooding your log with a million ACCESSED_NONES is a bad thing, so i managed to untangle some of my spaghetti, at least there's progress in that Smiley


I haven't had any voice actor offers, but i did get some good suggestions here and there, we'll see how this'll go  Cheesy
