UNniversary Bash 4: One last cheer

Several months ago, I'd promise a bash this year to those who couldn't make it to Anniversary Bash 21. Well here it is, better late than never! This will be the final bash I am self-organizing. From then on, I might do sporadic mini-events (of varying gamemodes) but that's a whole other topic.

This list will be even more curated than the third one, having a tighter focus on quality levels over sheer nostalgia. As before, all duplicates are automatically null. You'll also be able to personally join the curation server to give in input what map(s) should get in. This'll be in the form of a temporary discord channel and possibly in-game server (but we won't be covering all maps, it would take too long).

There won't be any new (2019 post-AB21) maps as I feel there are many to go through as is - I'm not sure if we can even make an entire cycle in just two days! EDIT: I might add them but no guarantee, there's still a lot of maps.

The date for the event is planned to be November the 30th, coinciding with the GOG rerelease of the first two Jazz games. I'm planning to make it run for one weekend, with one day of CTF and one day of Battle. I hope to be running custom variants and some fun mutators, but I'll allow vanilla play for a while.

Dead project? Not at all! Behind the stage, we've quietly been working on curating the CTF maplist. We got down to 96* of them, and you can click here for the draft. Please note the pivot table isn't working and the battle maps haven't been fully been curated yet. I also want to have it narrowed down to only showing candidates.

I understand this is still a bit too much for the public, though I wanted to get out something substantial along announcing the release date. We'll be going back and re-curating the CTF list after the battle one has been done.

But you can still vote on what CTF maps to keep or veto in the list at this time - were especially looking for input on "maybe" map entries, it's just not urgent at the moment. Votes can be done on this thread or on the special UB4 channel.

The bash start date has also been announced to begin on November the 30th, coinciding with the GOG rerelease.

EDIT: Turns out those 96 were only the yes maps.

I am regretful to announce that UNniversary bash 4 will be delayed to the 7th of December.

With the personal life issues that had arisen in the past few weeks, the workload is simply too much within the course of a day. On the upside, this should ensure a more smooth and entertaining experience for everyone. As a compensation, I may offer bonus events not part of the level list! Ground force has been on my mind, and it's not just the survivor packs.

Our current curation stage is where we want to round down to 100 maps per gamemode at max. Were currently roughly at 120 each You can still view the progress here.

After much frustration and crunch, the server is finally up. A few levels have some annoying bugs but at this point, I'm tired of delaying it any longer. Whatever could've went wrong, went wrong.

So yeah, because of this expect the server not to actually close until Wednesday night, but it'll be earlier if there's a lack of interest.
