    Yes and no

    It shouldn't clutter the assault gametype for people who want to play, but perhaps there should be a 'custom gametype' list for non official types, such as trials and racing, where anything with a custom type will show up here.
    With counter strike, it comes up with every match and mode so you can experiment, but all UTs have only shown the gametypes you have installed.

What I don't understand is the appeal of the "race" maps that showed up, since they rarely had any actual resemblance to racing, and didn't even do demolition derby in a fun way. Meanwhile better implementations of racing like Unwheel were abandoned.
    Race maps were nice for a bit of a change, and the unwheel point you made relates to that last point I made AS race maps were there for everyone to play. Unwheel matches required you to actually have installed unwheel, so it died out. Basically anything that didn't work off the core gametypes was doomed to fail, a long overdue update to this would be nice

If assault does get created for UT4 and pretty sure this is going to happen, you will see trials come back.
      holy ....... SgtMuffin?? you are my UT2K4 hero, ****ing love your maps

        Seems to me that assault is not even necessary with BP.

          It's technically not, although I think I would personally rather see Assault as its own gametype rather than trying to Assault-ify, say, CTF. A person going to play CTF has a certain set of expectations, and even though we can wrap certain elements into this it's probably best to not totally upend those expectations. BunnyTrack seems to have been built on CTF, for example, but I really don't want to see CTF being taken over by BunnyTrack maps.

            I would just suggest some kind of sandbox gametype to do those kind of maps?

              My position in this: add BT/race/trials if you want but DON'T MIX THAT WITH ASSAULT. As a separate gametype, I doubt people will have a problem. Reasons were explained above.

                It will for sure end up mixed if won't be reachable & "just available" in the form of a custom gametype (such as having to download something from the market first).

                  I really hope if AS gets in the game that race/trial maps are in their separate gametype. It was really bad to dive among the thousands of "trial"/"race" maps in order to play the real intended mission-based Assault.

                  If I want to play race, I would fire Unwheel. If I want to play trials, I would fire Dodge Pro Mod. Assault is for round-based team-based missions, not for stuff like that.

                    I'd love to see these as a default game variant, with default maps that range from novice, learn all the moves in the game, to expert, you have to be creative on combining moves.

                    The FNG training grounds from ut 2k4 was instrumental in teaching me to dodge up ramps.
