When a new player opens up Soldat, not only is he met with a convoluted and confusing menu, but also graphics straight from 2000, which even for the time weren't good.
With 1.8 we are going to rectify that. Hand-painted sceneries and textures were the way to go, since limitations poised by the old engine rendered many conventional methods useless, and the art team (which consists of Monsteri) doesn't have enough time for 3D pre-renders.

Join #THD @ Quakenet.

I'm happy to announce that Soldat has a new map team with the following members:
Monsteri (leader), Viral, Petter and darDar
Thier primary task is to take care about official soldat map pool, along with selecting the official maps, which they intend to do in the near future (as discussed here).
If you wish to help them, talk to Monsteri. You can find most of these guys on IRC (#soldat @ QuakeNet).
