We wish everyone a Happy New Year 2019! :fireworks:

2018 was great!

Although the UGX-Mods team (the few remaining ppl) stepped back from zombie modding,
we still love to see so much user generated content and activity in the modding scene.
Outstanding tools, amaizing maps,helpful tutorials and Q&A across the web - you guys rock!

The new UGX-Mods site overhaul is finally released and we hope we can grow bigger in 2019 with more cool features and improvements. :thumbsup:

UGX Launcher

Our anticipated goal to release the UGX Launcher :ugxl: in 2018 was not possible due to personal events and of course the work on our site overhaul, but we are very optimistic that 2019 will be a great year with the release of the UGX Launcher which will finally replace the UGX MapManager and allows us to support and maintain the application as long as people are actively using it.

Activity

Over the past two years we noticed less activity and this year we try to find solutions to bring back the good old times. If you have a great idea or want to help us -> let us know!
On the other side: we are close to 500k registered members (crazy!) and we will hit it this year for sure.

Thank You

A big thank you goes to our site and chat moderators - we wouldn't be here without them!
Of course also a big shoutout to our V.I.P's (former UGX-Mods members / partners / etc.), our lovely Donators <3 and of course every single user who are with us and keep this community alive. Thank you :heart:


2018 was great but 2019 will be even better!

Hello beloved members,

It's this magical time of the year again. :christmas_tree:
So many sales and your pockets are empty already. :money_with_wings:
Play some christmas / winter maps and fight against the undead!

We hope you all have a great time, many presents, good food and a lot of fun.

Have some great winter holidays with the ones that matter to you most :heart_decoration:

I found the issue and it's fixed. It will be rolled out with the upcoming update and won't annoy you again ;)Also the style of it within the editor has been fixed, it looks now 1:1 with the forum post.

Thanks for reporting this issue! <3

This spacing issue is something which I was constantly fighting over months during donor beta development.

I looked at your post and it looks like this is caused by the download buttons. I should be able to deliver a fix with the next update. ;)

Good news: the issue should be fixed now.
Let me know if it's still not working :thumbsup:

thats weird, especially you should have no problem as donor.
Technically you just have to hit submit and it will delete the emotes until the error disappears.

I look into this asap.

I try to implement ordering by date / creation. Please not that this tool is meant for exporting your data according to GDPR and not to search your posts.
That should be possible under https://www.ugx-mods.com/forum/profile/area=showposts;sa=messages (although I'm unsure if it will show messages which are moved into a private area)

Update: I'll discuss the map idea section soon - no worries. Just have a lot to do ;)

We still have it archived. You could find and export it manually with our new Privacy tool under https://www.ugx-mods.com/forum/profile/;area=privacy;exportcat=messages
Maybe we can also revive this forum section (at least in a read only) mode again. I'll check ;)

Current State:
Most of the issues have been resolved by now. We will monitor the situation and will do further improvements and optimizations if needed. :dolphin:

The Forum / Site has some critical issues atm.The most dramatic one is the 502 error thrown by Cloudflare due to most likely our server.I assume it's performance related and my hopes are to find a solution during the weekend.


If you encounter issues a simple reload should most likely fix it. - I know: not perfect - but thats what you get when a single developer is responsible for everything and only a small testing group checked the beta site out. 


Hey guys,

after over two years it's finally here, our site overhaul.
It was a long and stressfull journy and we are happy to finally share this project with everyone.

Please forgive us if there are some issues in the next few days, we will monitor the site and might hotfix issues which we simply couldn't find in our Closed, Donor & Open Beta ;)

Most noteworthy changes compared to our old site:
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

You can read the latest changelog (and all others from the paste) here: https://confluence.ugx-mods.com/display/UGXMODS/UGXSMF+v0.8.0-beta

Thanks for your support, be sure to let us know what you think!



I'm personally happy that this milestone has been completed now.

UGX-Mods should be future proof now, bringing you a lot of new improvements and features + modern web standards.



Greetings on behalf of the remaining UGX-Mods team

We have some great news to share, so let's get started!


Release date

We are very excited to announce the release date for the new UGX-Mods theme.

The upcoming weekend (September 8th - 9th) will be the beta release on our production site.
After over 2 years of planning, developing, testing and refineing it's finally happening.


Downtime / Maintenance

There will be a downtime of 1-2 hours !
During that time we will migrate everything on production.

We will announce the exact time on our UGX-Mods Discord and on Twitter (@UGXMods).


Last Open Beta version has been released

We also released the last open beta release on https://beta.ugx-mods.com - go check it out now! Everyone can take a look before it goes on production this weekend <3

In this release we added new emotes like this one: :ugxmods_blue:
We also added support for emojis: :heart_eyes: :laughing: :thumbsup: (you can only see them on https://beta.ugx-mods.com/forum - this will obviously change with the go-live)

We made more changes, improvements and features, read the full changelog here: https://confluence.ugx-mods.com/display/UGXMODS/UGXSMF+v0.7.2-open-beta


Thats it for now, stay frosty!

Hello community,

Today is an exciting day for us. We have finally released our new UGX-Mods Forum as Open Beta to everyone.

Simply head over to https://beta.ugx-mods.com to get started - be sure to give us feedback (see below) so that we can improve it before it goes live on our main domain (production).

Please note: Your user settings won't be carried over, so beta and non beta (production) won't share the same settings.
This also effects some forum settings and statistics like total forum user count and such.

Other than that, Beta and Production share the same data and you are free to use Beta as long the Open Beta goes.

You can also share beta links, once we move out we simply redirect the links to the correct site (heart)

Before we dive into the major changes, let's talk about you and your privacy first!


GDPR | Your privacy

You probably received dozens of emails about Privacy Policy changes and such. Well we updated our as well!
We refined it and made it more transparent. We also respect the EU GDPR and apply the changes and features to everyone including non EU citizens.
We face one big issue: Currently only https://beta.ugx-mods.com has these changes!
We try to get out of the Open Beta as fast as possible but we believe it will take up to two weeks before we can do that.
If you have any GDPR related concerns, simply use https://beta.ugx-mods.com which has all changes to comply with GDPR already.
We most likey will refine our Privacy Policy further and require your consent soon again - we are no experts ;)


Major changes in Open Beta

The work began 2 long years ago and we added and improved a lot since then. Here some major highlights but there is a lot more:

    • New gallery and slider options for images

    • The sound and the desktop notification can be disabled in your settings!

    • nicer URLs (with page title, etc.)

You can also write here directly on this announcement. :)

We evaluate your feedback and put it into our development roadmap. Hopefully you are excited with the new forum and everything works out smoothly.
That would mean that production would be soon ready for the new forum theme.

It has been a long journey for me (Delta) and I'm personally very excited to share with everyone my work (heart)

Due to the recent SSL move and harder security we are facing issues with the UGX Launcher (legacy version) and I'm sorry that it didn't work for some time.

Good news: I just fixed it and it should work again.

I have to spent $5 /month to fix this issue, but hopefully thew new UGX Launcher will be out soon.

Also this section is wrong to ask these kind of questions. I kept it here for refernece now but colse it.
For any further discussion, please use the Donor Section for now (as the UGX Launcher is for donors only atm)
