Unreal Fortress Released
8:20 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

After nearly a year of waiting, fans of the team fortress game type can finally try out the modification for UT called Unreal Fortress. While not an exact duplicate of any previous team fortress mod, UnF shares much in common with its predecessors. Here's a bit from the manual explaining more:

In this first public release of UnF, you get a new game mode, "Fortress", plus new skins, weapons, sounds, maps, and more. UnF is primarily designed for online play, although the bot AI has been partially modified to take advantage of the new features of UnF. Fortress mode is an extensively modified version of capture-the-flag. Your team's goal is to grab the enemy flag and bring it back to the drop-off point in your base while preventing the enemy from stealing your flag. The basic goal is simple, but the tactics are as complex as you want them to be.

In future releases, we plan to include full bot support, many more game modes, more maps, new player models, and other exciting features. One of our highest priorities is the implementation of full clan match-oriented features.

Keep in mind this is the first public beta release of the game, though, so there are a few issues to deal with. One problem that seems to be affecting the Mac version is at the end of installation. It throws an error about not being able to open the license agreement. With a bit of testing, the mod still seemed playable, so it looks like this can be ignored for now.

After unzipping the file (always remember turn off convert text files to the Mac format if you're using Stuffit Expander), simply drag the file onto the UMOD installer to begin. If you're looking for help, there's always IMG's troubleshooting forum, or you can check out the UnF site for more info. Head on over to Macgamefiles to download the modification now.
