Crysis Weekly Update Nr. 12
Sunday, 20 April 2008
Greetings once again. Welcome to the “Crysis Weekly Update Nr. 12”, an official status report from Crytek to the world-wide community in order to get you up-to-date on the progress of various Crysis related topics so please make sure your take your time and read the news below.
|Crysis Weekly Update becomes Crysis Monthly UpdateWhen we started writing the Crysis Weekly Update back in January this year, we had quite a lot of things to tell the community, mainly about the development of Patch 1.2. With the release of this patch the weekly update also featured other Crysis related topics such as the Mod SDK, Dedicated Server, Anti-Cheat Protection, our Crysis Outtakes video series and of course the match Crytek vs. Community. Now we have come to another point where the content of the weekly update changes slightly. The Crytek Multiplayer Dev Team started working on a longer term project for Crysis. It is definitely related to Multiplayer, Patches and the ongoing Crysis Multiplayer support, but it is too early to reveal more bits and pieces at this stage. Thus we decided to turn the Crysis update from the devs into a monthly version from now on. This will provide us more time for gathering enough information, news and assets exclusively for you and sending them out in one great Crysis update per month. So keep your eyes open for the first Crysis Monthly Update in May and get ready for some very interesting news. J Upcoming New CryENGINE2 DocumentationWe also got some great news for all the Crysis modders out there. This Friday we are going to release a huge update to the CryENGINE2 documentation provided on http://doc.crymod.com. Sandbox2 Editor DocumentationThe documentation for the Sandbox2 Editor probably receives the biggest update that includes brand new tutorials for you to read through. Additionally we will upload a whole bunch of new references that help you understanding several aspects of the editor itself and its respective tools. And we are also going to re-work some of the already available tutorials to make them more accessible and easier to understand. Asset Creation GuideWe also got an update to the Asset Creation Guide that is meant to be used in conjunction with the Crysis Mod SDK and covers various topics regarding asset creation, installing CryTools and using these together with modeling programs and the Sandbox2 Editor. Video TutorialsAnd last but not least we have a few new video tutorials in production already which we will release within the upcoming days. At the moment we are evaluating the feedback from the community in the respective thread which helps us to create a new list of video tutorials we will produce next. So if you have a request for a specific tutorial just place your post there and we will make sure it finds its place on our to-do list. Intel / Crysis Mapping Contest – Final Stage for Multiplayer LevelsYesterday the community voting for the Multiplayer levels that have been submitted for the Intel / Crysis Mapping Contest ended. For about two weeks every community member who was a registered user on crymod.com had the chance to rate their favorite map(s) according to three available criteria that have been: |
Now that no further votes are possible the contest turns into the last phase which is the jury voting and determining the winners. The FinalistsAbout 40 maps for both categories that are PowerStruggle and InstantAction have been submitted. First of all we want to congratulate everyone who successfully participated in this contest. It has been an exciting and also stressful time for everyone who created a map and we highly appreciate the effort you have put into this.

Based on some issues we have encountered with the voting system we decided to take all maps from each category and do a completely separate rating of the top10 finalists by the jury members. This will provide a fair chance to everyone who submitted a map to win one of the outstanding prizes our partner Intel has provided.
Following you will find a list of the accepted maps for the jury voting: Power Struggle
