Mars Needs Women - For UT
4:44 PM | Michael Eilers | Comment on this story
Wolfchild of the Frogblast: The Ventcore Project team dropped by our forums to let us know that he has completed a long-awaited project: a port of the Marathon netmap Mars Needs Women to Unreal Tournament.
It's no overstatement to say that this map is probably the most played Mac netmap ever; it was the only netmap available for the Marathon demo and has remained popular ever since. Wolfchild notes that it was the single-most requested map that the Project has ever worked on, and to do this map justice it has been re-created with the original Marathon textures.
Frogblast: The Ventcore Project
The Ventcore Project is an entirely separate effort from the Marathon: Resurrection project, which is an effort to re-create the solo Marathon experience in Unreal Tournament. However, the Resurrection team is planning on releasing a weapons mod that will duplicate the original Marathon weapons - combining this mod with Wolfchild's excellent maps should be Marathon bliss. Even if you've never played the original Marathon - for shame! - grab this map and the other great ports from the Ventcore project.
