A Revised CTF-Floating Fortress and CTF-Dark Towers
Posted by Toonces T. Cat on Sunday, November 18, 2001 4:00 PM CDT


CTF-Floating Fortress][ and CTF-Dark Towers start tonight:

CTF-Floating Fortress][

This revised "Low Poly" version runs as smooth as glass...


CTF-Dark Towers

An over-view of the entire map from the Red Side...

A lower perspective from behind the Blue Tower...


This Low Poly Count version of Hobi-Wan's CTF-Floating Fortress][ is virtually identical in every other respect to the version that has been running on the Stuffed Cats Inc. Server. The only difference you should notice is that, if you do not have a high-horsepower video card or CPU, it should run a whole lot smoother on your end of things. The link to download the revised map is below, or just take the push.

CTF-Dark Towers is one tough map to play. Think of it as a cross between CTF-Sky Rush and CTF-Orbital Arena. It has all the size and vast sniper potential of Sky Rush, while maintaining the speed and frantic play-mode of Orbital Arena. The Jump Pads are really effective on this map, but are a bit tricky until you figure out where each of them is going to throw you. The link to download CTF-Dark Towers is below, or you can just take the push.

Funny Stuff from Other Unreal Tournament Clans
Posted by Toonces T. Cat on Sunday, November 18, 2001 4:00 PM CDT


Clan Canada and the Leet Llamas really get it:

Clan Canada's Team Logo

This logo demonstrates a great sense of humor...


The Leet Llamas Clan

Lots of humor here, but with a very adult bent...


I am going to attempt to post pieces every now and then that highlight clans outside of TeamUT that seem to get it. Both of the above UT clans clearly understand that playing a video game does not automatically mandate the surgical removal of one's sense of humor. It appears that the Clan Canada site is still under construction or may have been abandoned, but the Leet Llamas' seems to be in full swing and offers a number of good laughs if you can take the time to browse through it. Be warned, however, that the Leet Llamas' site does contain a lot of adult humor...NOT recommended for the Kittens...:-)

Scoundrels and Cheaters on the Stuffed Cats Inc. Server
Posted by Toonces T. Cat on Sunday, November 18, 2001 3:30 PM CDT


What CSHP has turned up to date:

It was time to clean out the banned IPs from the unrealtournament.ini file. The IPs I removed were the bans that Puma and I had placed on assorted Lamerz, Llamas, and other GPTMs (General Purpose Trouble Makers). The bans that have been levied as the result of an attempted cheat, however, will remain in place indefinitely.

As these people may play on other UT servers, I think a head-ups is not only fair, but completely in order. Consequently, if you cheat on the Stuffed Cats Inc. Server and I catch you at it, the information will be published on this website. And, just in case you're curious...and I know you are...here's the comprehensive list of losers for your reading enjoyment:

Dead Cats vs. Dead on Arrival  ~  Why No Follow-Up?
Posted by Toonces T. Cat on Tuesday, November 13, 2001 5:30 PM CDT


Dead Cats vs. DoA Match was a fiasco:

Well, the DoA guys have made it really easy for me to put this nonsense that some would call a match to bed. Out of curiosity I visited their website to see how they were handling the mess. Lo and behold, what did I find but comments about a "good win" and a pair of screenshots including one of CTF-Lucius' Pit showing them as the 10-3 winners.

I was watching the time on the game and at roughly 28:30, the score was still 3-2 in favor of DC. They did, in fact, tie the game when BK dropped off the server before the 30:00 minute time limit had passed. And due to the the very erratic...and I am being kind here...operation of their server, they then scored the over-time cap while BK again lost his connection. Even if they did win the game, which I absolutely will not concede, the score cannot be anything other than 4-3 as the game was supposed to be set for 30:00 minutes. But then I suppose that a 10-3 score does make a better screenshot for their website even if the other team had stopped playing.

What I did not find on their site was a single ounce of grace on any page. I did find it to be remarkably disingenuous to have posted the Lucius' Pit screenshot without a single disclaimer or caveat explaining the reality of their so-called "win."

Thanks for listening to me vent...:-)

Final Version of Hobi-Wan's CTF-Canyon Run Starts Tonight
Posted by Toonces T. Cat on Sunday, November 11, 2001 7:00 PM CDT


A polished CTF-Canyon Run from Hobi-Wan:

CTF-Canyon Run

No cheap captures running through here...


Hobi-Wan adds a few details to the final version...


CTF-Canyon Run is now ready for prime-time on the Stuffed Cats Inc. Server. Hobi-Wan has fine-tuned it to a tee. The one most significant change is the addition of more ammo packs for all the little DC "Ammo Hogs" that roam around the server. A few other things have changed as well; including brighter dynamic lighting in the cave areas, and better Bot AI...including some Low Gravity moves for them to use.

CTF-Canyon Run has been so popular as a Beta that I decided to create a special Map Tour page for it. However, this one is a bit different. For the first time, you'll get to take a look at what Hobi-Wan sees inside the Unreal Tournament Editor. It is a very large page as the editor views are extremely detailed and will take a while to load up...Please be patient.

The Dead Cats vs. Dead on Arrival Saturday Night
Posted by Toonces T. Cat on Sunday, November 8, 2001 6:30 PM CDT


The Dead Cats will meet DoA in a Low-Gravity CTF Match:


The Dead Cats will take on DoA in a Low-Gravity CTF Match this Saturday, November 10th at 6:00pm CST on the DoA Server. This a very tough, very experienced Low Gravity clan. With the lone exception of their 3-0 loss to {BIO} in an Instagib match, they are undefeated in inter-clan play.

The three maps are as follows:


        Game #1 - CTF-2Pyramids             Low Gravity, 130% Speed, rest at default

        Game #2 - CTF-Lucius' Pit-3          Low Gravity, DE Ammo, rest at default

        Game #3 - CTF-Orbital                   Low Gravity, 130% Speed, DE Ammo, rest at default


All of the games will be 5 vs. 5 and the [DC] team will be the same 5 players unless we lose someone. The Dead Cats' team will consist of: Cronic, Sanecow, Barkeep, Frisky, and Missing Lynx. If we need a back-up player, Mr. DeadCat will be on stand-by to fill in. The Dead Kitty's UT Server will be available between now and Saturday for team practice.
