WildWest Mod: 10th Anniversary News

The WildWest was the first MOD created for Return to Castle Wolfenstein, nearly 10 years ago to the date (October 22, 2002).  It's creators, Hewster and B0ltyB0y were pioneers in the RtCW mapping/modding scene.  One of the original goals was to create as near as possible a Total Conversion MOD from the start, using as little RtCW content as possible (baring the sdk of course). This would turn out to come in handy years later.  The RTCW source code was released under GPL on August 12, 2010.  Since that time, a small (but dedicated) following has been waiting for the inevitable; a new and Free release of The WildWest – as a stand-alone game.

WW: El Paso
Currently a WW RC is in the beta stages, but I already had a chance to run around on an old familiar map… El Paso.  The original was created by Mario "DeadKennedy" Messer, for Western Quake III.  With the assistance of Hewster, Ringo, and countless others, we converted the map over to the WildWest – and I heavily modified it from there.  Although I would not take credit for the original map, I am pleased to see "something" I worked on will be apart of a published game, and will be freely available for anyone to download and play.
In fact, I'm considering the re-installion of GTKRadiant… 
We'll see.  🙂

Fort Alcatraz

Recently, I've been thinking about Alcatraz again.  I've wanted to build a map of it for a long time…  Be it an educational walk through, or an actual video game – I always thought it'd be a cool environment.  So I decided to research Alcatraz a little further during the Wild West period, since I currently have that mapping environment installed and ready to go (The WildWest, a RTCW MOD).

Here are some of the pictures I've come across so far.

Obsidian UI for GtkRadiant

GTK Radiant using Obsidian UI

GTK Radiant using Obsidian UII came across an old UI theme for GtkRadiant 1.4. Back in the day I used to rock this, and now that I've installed it again, I remember why! It's sexy.

Here is GTK Radiant using Obsidian UI:

You can grab this theme here. Or browse to it from my Downloads page.

El Paso Released

WW: El Paso

After over a year of on-and-off tinkering, DeadKennedy’s El Paso (from Western Q3) has been ported over to RtCW’s first Mod, The WildWest. Building on an already great map, I made countless additions, and what I hope are, enhancements. Yeehaww!

The final release download will be at The WildWest, as part of a Mod Update patch or mappack add-on. Until then, take a peep at some level shots here.
