There are some incredibly exciting and encouraging signs regarding the new UT going on in the weapon forums. YemYam, an Epic modeler for 11 years, has joined the team. To get a feel for his mind-blowing capability, check out his portfolio HERE.
With YemYam coming on board, the rate of development for models will increase dramatically (it has been rather slow so far). His idea is to start getting crude prototypes in the game which I think is much better than Epic working behind the scenes with that part of the process and then revealing something final. Follow the development thread HERE.

On the community modeling side, Tidal Blast is doing an incredible job of modeling Gooba’s Enforcer concept. Can’t wait to get my virtual hands on these babies!
