I can 100% officially guarantee that at least two of the songs sent him "crazy" :innocent:

Two more tracks added; to the following maps :-
Passage_xmas_music	   Fun Lovin' Criminals - The Fun Lovin' Criminal
ExtremeDark_xmas_music     Purple Motion (Future Crew) - 2ND_PM
2ND_PM is surely one of the best tracker files ever. You get a lot of entertainment for a file-size of only 587 Kb!
Bingo!

P.S. If I am not around next year, it is due to numerous record company copyright violations I committed this year. It's ok to use tracker/mod files but some of the others, well............ :cheesygrin:

Well I guess it's time to close this server!

I guess most of us are done with Christmas themes now............

Soooooo.......... this server will self-destruct in T minus 1 minute.

Huge thanks to Nikola-(DOG)- for her awesome Nali Castle and SkyTown maps. Hopefully she can do more for Christmas 2017. Also a huge thanks to all those that played and had fun there!

Happy New Year All!

WOOF!

Christmas Fun Server 2018!


Celebrations, traditions and holiday party-atmospheres usually involve music, lights, dancing and general merriment and Christmas is no exception! So the Christmas server is launched with the aim of some Festive Fragging!

So if the idea of obliterating a Tinsel Krall with a Flak Cannon that shoots cake and snowballs appeals to you or using a SnowBlower to send a Santa Brute into oblivion sounds entertaining, all whilst listening to some upbeat songs, then join us on the NewbiesPlayground Christmas Fun server!

Like previous years, the server contains complete reworkings of some of the more iconic maps by Nikola, such as TheSunSpire (now TheSnowSpire), Skytown (now SnowTown) and Nali Castle all retextured and decorated fantastically well with everything that would make Santa, his little helpers and reindeer very happy indeed!

The maps contain a mixture of some traditional music, such as Ella Fitzgerald's "Sleigh Ride", dance/techno versions of familiar songs such as "Amazing Grace", up-tempo music in general, a few requested tunes and some tracker files by artists like Skaven/Purple Motion that suit the maps with a unique Unreal flavour and inspiration!

There are actually still 5 maps without associated music and they will be completed by the end of this weekend. So if anyone has a reaonable request for a song that they would like be in one of these 5 maps then please PM myself or Nikola and we will do our best to oblige!

And remember......... anyone joining the server with a Grinch factor greater than 49.99% will receive a bash over the head with a large turkey and this year it's a frozen turkey!

Due to the closeness of the New Year, this is also time for a reflection on the year that has nearly ended and what the next year may bring, so best wishes and peace to all Unreal players and if Santa did climb down your chimney, let's hope he fetched you everything you could want!

Special thanks to Nikola-(DOG)- for her awesome map reworks, Oblivion (Moo Moo Land) for MML Christmas mod, Masterkent for UMapMutator, Casey for HCustomSpawner, Zombie for DZMapMutator, goPostal for his goChristmasLights mod, Leo(T.C.K.) for various pawns, the people that playtested and lastly of course the biggest thanks to strategy-(DOG)- for endless patience, help and kindness over the years and not just at Christmas time!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!

Below are some screenshots from Nikola's SnowTown and TheSnowSpire!
