Title: 4 Team CTF mod
Post by: Everglade on June 11, 2008, 11:18:30 am
This is just an idea, I guess in the end I'm hopping someone will bother to make it.

Anyhow, its basicly a normal Capture The Flag but with 4 bases and flags (Here I've got a few options, my thanks to [NoPro]Porn for his ideas.)

- There is the most chaotic style, with 1 flag/team and you cap free for all.
(You can grab any enemy flag and score. Important with this type is that the flag doesn't spawn for an empty team.)
High scorelimit (15-20 perhaps)

- There is 1 flag somewhere on the map and all rush to cap it.
(Similiar to Hold The Flag)
Normal scorelimit (aprox. 5-10)

- There is 4 flags and bases but the catch is:
Alpha can only cap Bravo and the other way around.
Charlie can only cap Delta and the other way around.
(Can be hard to balance the maps for this type.)
Normal scorelimit

This mod would of course require a whole new set of maps, since normal maps doesn't have 4 bases ;) (I could be a part of the mapmaking, if needed.)

BTW: If anyone do decide to make this mod, please make sure it works for both 1.3.1 and 1.4.2.

Please feel free to comment, come with ideas, etc.

Evidently you don't understand the constraints of modding without a source development kit.

The only things that can be modded in Soldat are:

Body Sprites
Effect Sprites
Music & Weather
Weapon Interface
Weapon Sprites

Even with server scripting it would be impossible to (as far as I know) make charlie and delta flags.

Oh well, I guess I've been working too much with more complicated games. :P
Then this is perhaps to be consider for a future update?
I've talked to several people about this and got pretty good feedback, posted it here so that perhaps it would be notified by someone with the will and skill to do it.

Please keep putting ideas into this, since it's not nearly as perfect as it can be.

The suggestions forum would be more appropriate in that case then. UT2k4 player playing Soldat?
