UTAN is proud to announce that the upcoming modification for UT2004, called UTXMP, will have UTAN integrated into it. This is a scaled down version of UTAN which will allow the mod developers of UTXMP to control who can play their mod on online servers.

A little bit about the history of UTXMP:
Unreal II: Expanded Multiplayer (often shortened to 'XMP') was released by Legend Entertainment in 2003. This free add-on for Unreal II: The Awakening combined hardcore first-person shooter gameplay with elements of vehicular combat, resource management and strategic placement of automated defenses. A strong community quickly grew around this title, with many even creating custom levels and other content for the game, however the life of this promising title was cut short with the closure of Legend Entertainment by Atari in January 2004.

Now, Free Monkey Interactive is developing Unreal Tournament: Expanded Multiplayer (UT XMP), a total conversion that brings popular XMP gameplay to Epic Games' Unreal Tournament 2004 with the support of former Legend Entertainment employees.

“Unreal II’s Expanded Multiplayer add-on was a great multiplayer experience which sadly had its life cut short by the closure of Legend Entertainment,” said Erik Cederman, Lead Designer at Free Monkey Interactive. “We would hate to see XMP become a ‘forgotten classic’, and so that’s why we are working to combine our own original assets with top-notch XMP gameplay and the speed and style of Unreal Tournament 2004.”

Unreal Tournament: Expanded Multiplayer will offer intense class-based vehicular action in a range of stunning alien worlds, where players must manage energy reserves to power their war machines and battle for the control of four mysterious artifacts. UT XMP players will be given control over a vast array of all-new fearsome weapons, as well as mines, turrets and other deadly automated defenses.

The mod site also has some promotional videos that are certainly worth looking at.

We will enjoy working with the UTXMP crew, now, and in the future. :thumbup:

XMP has always deserved more and I'm happy to see the Unreal community is giving it just that. Thanks to everyone for their efforts. Here's looking forward to UT:XMP :) .

Help me understand.... Does this mean that this "functionality" will be a seperate system from the Existing UTAN? Will the Administration be central or Game server based? Will utan users participate in this system also? Details Details!!!!

Will utan users participate in this system also? Details Details!!!!UTAN: UTXMP is only admin'd by the developers of UTXMP, it will contain no server side configuration. To use the standard UTAN on UTXMP servers will simply mean installing the server actor as before. UTXMP will have its own global ban list which is not linked to the current UTAN ban list, this cannot be disabled/deactivated/removed. The current UTAN admins are not admining the ban appeals, that is being left to the UTXMP developers.

Ahhh, I don't really like it. One false move or itchy admin ban finger and the mod could be permanently gone for you.

The mod is gone for you if the makers feel you don't deserve it, that simple.
