        SHADOW WARRIOR FEATURE HTTP://WWW.SW-CENTRAL.COM 
=======================================================================

As new 3d shoot em up games are coming thick and fast, is there any 
place left for old shoot em ups like Shadow Warrior? 
What can be expected for the coming year? New maps? New TC's?
I.Mecking (Carger2000) and Robman are going find an answer to that... 
To give you all a clear picture of this we talked to some 
Mappers/WangBang players/SW Webmasters/:

-------------------------------------------------------------------
T.Strating [mapper/Sw player] (C2000), author of "Brave.map" & 
"Nature2.map":
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Can we expect anything any maps/TC's other stuff from you the
coming year? Are you working on anything?

A: At least 3 new maps in all styles (WangBang/1p etc).
     Maybe more, who knows.

Q: Is (in your opinion) Shadow Warrior dead?

A: No, you can still expect some cool stuff from me and 
     other mappers (like T.M.M off course) 

Q: What is the best user map you've seen for SW?

A: Got to be Mission-X part III (which I already saw, hehe)
     for WangBang games "Durfort" rules supreme.

Q: Final question, thoughts on Shadow Warrior 2?

A: I definitely hope it will see the light some day!

a BUILD tutorial site:

Q: Can we expect anything any maps/TC's other stuff from you the
coming year? Are you working on anything?

A:Yenji: I've been reconsidering finishing my maps or starting new ones
but I'm kinda on the edge about it. Ever since TEN went down I 
haven't had much map inspiration. Right now I'm not making anything for 
sw, i've been playing games like quake2 and counterstrike.

Q: Is (in your opinion) Shadow Warrior dead?

A:Yenji: Too the public i'd say it is since most people play games like 
ut and q3 now. But too those who played the game before or own the game
i think its not quite dead yet. Even I have played single player ever 
once in a while and have been craving a good multiplayer match, but too
bad for me that ic works very crappy on my comp despite having a cable,
so I don't get any multiplayer action anymore :(

Q: What is the best user map you've seen for SW?

A:Yenji: Hmmm thats a good one. I think the best one I seen for effects 
was one I think was called valley.map. I'm not sure if thats the name 
but I think it is, it never had too many effects, but it had some off 
the wall stuff, like being able to climb up a waterfall. For playing 
i'm not quite sure, I never ever got to play too many user maps over 
the net, but as for actual retail maps i'd have to say zilla 
construction. I have sssooo many death match memories from that level
>:)

Q: Final question, Thoughts on Shadow Warrior 2?

A:Yenji: A sw2 using a engine that allowed tcp/ip would be like a dream 
come true. Nothing ever made me laugh as hard or get into the game as 
much as sw did. I'd love too see a sw2, mabye one day 3dr will 
reconsider their position on this :)

Robman [SWplayer/Mapper/Webmaster SW-central.com]:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Can we expect anything any maps/TC's other stuff from you the
coming year? Are you working on anything?

A: Yes , I will be making maps long into the future , but they will 
most likely be Wangbang maps unless I feel REALLY Ambitious.

Q: Is (in your opinion) Shadow Warrior dead?

A: I believe shadow warrior is dead , but for the choice few who 
still make maps and play the occational game , we are the true lovers of 
the game and with us it will never be truely dead . Corny comment 
I know but it's true .

Q: What is the best user map you've seen for SW?

A: For attention to detail and great texture use , any of Carger2000's maps
but the best map Ive seen ?
Ummmm for wangbang : DBE ( simple yet well done ) and for single player 
probably  PARK . 

Q: Final question, thoughts on Shadow Warrior 2?

A:  If a shadow warrior 2 came out possibly with a modified Unreal 
Engine and brought sw back and everyone played it , I'd be speechless.

Q: Can we expect anything any maps/TC's other stuff from you the
coming year? Are you working on anything?

A:TDO: Im currently not working on anything for Shadow warrior, 
but I am making a sky palace for half life.

Q: Is (in your opinion) Shadow Warrior dead?

A:TDO: No.

Q: What is the best user map you've seen for SW?

A:TDO: Mission-X.

Q: Final question, thoughts on Shadow Warrior 2?

A:TDO: Dont make one.
Shadow warrior was good because of the engine, not the characters or 
plot. 3d realms should focus on duke nukem forever and just not make
SW2 at all.


Okay, thats what the people say, it gives an overall view in what
can be expected in MAPS (Not VERY much alas). For a good view of
what is coming here's a release shedule for all you people waiting

These lists show people a lot of facts.
Like; 2000 has been a quiet year for SW with not much maps or TC's released.
However, a SW newsletter was set-up, a totally new and great SW website was
launched and the the TC's and maps that actually DID came out this year
were of a high standard. Can you expect a beatiful future with lots of
maps and TC's, 8 player WangBang games and stuff? No, but as the coming year 
will probably be some of Shadow Warrior's last,
 lets make it one to remember, ok?
