    Thumbs up UT2K3 is done!!!!

    just read this post from Mark Rein on the official forums:

    Unreal Tournament 2003 has gone gold!

    Just before 5AM Eastern Standard Time this morning we shipped the release version of Unreal Tournament 2003 to manufacturing. It should be in production later today and in stores before the end of the month. We want to thank everyone on the forum for all of the valuable feedback. In the week since we shipped the demo we worked pretty much non-stop to squash a lot of bugs and incorporate some of the great feedback we got from players all around the world.

    Yeah, I just saw that, the very same message is in my clipboard ready to drop on here as we speak, too late again eh? lol but he also said the following:

    UT2003 is a 3 CD set. Of course you know it’s a huge game with a ton of content (over 35 levels), great characters, awesome gametypes, incredible AI, cool mutators, etc. But there’s also some great tools including the following:

    1. Maya Personal Learning Edition from Alias|Wavefront - a special version of the professional-strength 3D content creation tool used by top game designers and major Hollywood studios along with a special plug-in created by our friends Secret Level Inc. that provides seamless integration between the game's engine and Maya.

    2. The Karma Authoring Tool (KAT) that allows you to set up character joint constraints for use with MathEngine's Karma real-time physics system which is incorporated into UT2003.

    3. UPaint - a 3D painting application that lets you paint directly on the games' characters in 3D and also provides face projection which allows you to paste your face over the game's characters.

    4. The Unreal Editor 3.0 - the latest version of the main tool we used to build all of the UT2003 levels.

    5. The UnrealScript Real Time Debugger lets mod authors trace through their code like never before. This is the kind of tool that professional developers rely on to ship the best possible code.

    6. A fully working Karma-enhanced vehicle and a test level to drive it around it. This will give mod maker a head start on how to do cool vehicle-based mods with our technology.
    Complaining is like a rocking chair, It's fun for a while but it doesn't get you anywhere.

    According to latest rumours it will hit the stores in the US on Friday ... and Europe needs to wait a bit longer (somewhere in October, can't remember the date exactly...)

    Oh... and both the Linux and Windows versions are included on the CD aswell
