It's been a long time coming, (mainly due to some optimization struggles) but the first Beta release of New Cerberon is here!

Enjoy, and don't forget to leave some feedback!
A commentary of my in-development map, New Cerberon, has been released by Ferdinand "cityy" List.
Many thanks to cityy for his time; hopefully I can learn much from his thoughts and comments!
No, this isn't the Sonic Mayhem track. I'm just here to tell you about the 1st Alpha for my new QL CTF map, "New Cerberon".

I figured I should update the blog again while I have the chance. I'm looking into completely redesigning the site though at some point, but don't ask for an ETA on that just yet.
Anyways I recently purchased Issue #50 of the 3D Artist magazine which includes some neat programs and features such as Vue 10 Frontier, which I'm experimenting with along with Blender. I'm pondering the idea of making several showcase-only pieces with them, but we'll see how it goes.
Yesterday, the second edition of the Sparta Cups hosted by Puffdar had finished, with "reload" emerging victorious. Streaming was performed on one of the servers in France, with more games played on the Warsow E-Sport Servers and the YOBA servers. The games were fun to watch, and it was intriguing to observe players battling on my map in such a competitive environment.
I'll be using much of the advice given during the Sparta Cup and on the Warsow thread to make improvements for the third beta of Catharsis, and hopefully the last one before it gets the finalized status.

Some truly wonderful news to deliver - my Warsow map Catharsis (Beta 2) is featured in the map pool of the Sparta Duel Cup #2, organized by Puffdar. The date is set for December 23rd, and this Sunday the prize money (courtesy of several generous donators) from 1st to 8th place will be announced.
Full details available at the official Sparta Cup page: http://spartacup.tourney.cc/
Thanks to Puffdar for the announcement and organization of the cup. Hope to see some awesome matches on it!
I should've posted this earlier as it's been out for a while, but better late than never!
If you haven't checked it out on the Warsow forums, here is a link to the 2nd beta for Catharsis:
The map has received some attention from the competitive community, and as usual you can find it on the Warsow ESport servers, thanks to crizis of course. A few games have been played on the second beta already, which is exciting to hear.
The first beta for my Warsow map, Catharsis, is now available:
Feel free to leave by comments, suggestions, and bug reports. Your thoughts are always welcome!
Here's a screenshot to whet the appetite:
The not-so-exciting news: I've got a new logo up from my Assault Force map. Originally wanted to do a rotating banner, but it really messed up the layout and proved too much of a hassle for the time being.
Some more exciting news: I've been working on a Warsow (an id tech 2-based arena shooter which blends elements of Quake and Unreal Tournament) map lately, with three alphas released. Soon enough, hopefully, I'll have a beta released. In the meantime, stick around for updates!
And it's ready to rock!
The first beta for my map "Assault Force" has been released:
Feel free to give suggestions and report bugs before the final release comes out. So far I'm very pleased with how it turned out, and I learned so much from experimentation with the UT3 editor.
Thanks, and enjoy the map!
