Looking at the latest screenshots gave me a bit of nostalgia for one of my favorite (proprietary) games: UT2004. Specifically, Onslaught:

So, my question / idea is:
1.) Can the game engine support the kind of massive open spaces typical of Onslaught maps?
2.) Would adding vehicle support ever be considered?
3.) One of the massive strengths of the old UT2k4 series was the relatively simple Uscript capabilities. Is an equivalent something that would ever be considered for Unvanquished?

Thanks all! :smile:

Hi @whitepines ! I would recommend you the Xonotic game (they are our dear friends !). Xonotic is an UT-like game and has vehicle support and an onslaught game mode. The Xonotic onslaught game mode does not look to be very popular (I'm not seeing any active server for it at the time I write this comment) but you'll find maps for it (both officials and contib ones).

On the other hand you will easily find actively played Xonotic servers hosting vehicle-based capture the flags games. Try it out :wink:

By the way I'm curious to see how can be an Unvanquished typical game (humans against aliens fighting for map domination) on a large maps with the help of vehicles. :grin:
