Forced mod graphics
« on: August 17, 2006, 08:24:38 am »
I'm not sure if anyone's suggested this before 'cause Iunno what keywords it'd go for in search or just manually looking back through the previous pages. Hell, it might be a feature already in Soldat that I don't know about. So... here goes. Quite a simple suggestion, actually: allow modders to specify a folder on their harddrive to take custom mod graphics/weapon settings from when hosting a server (or none at all), then add a checkbox to set the server to force all players to download and view the custom graphics and sounds during the game. Perhaps packed in like a custom map download.

Of course, this would probably be abused with ear-splitting weapon sounds and incredibly tacky colors, but that's why there could be a new column in the server browser with just a Yes/No that says whether the server's running a graphics mod.

Please don't post unless you are willing to explain your opinions.  Posting like this without explanation is spam.

A quick forum search of the words "download mod," searching only in the "Game Improvements/Suggestions" forum turns up this thread:

I'm locking this,  please continue any discussion there.

For the record, posting in old topics is perfectly fine, as long as you're posting for good reason and have something actually useful to say, not just "lol" "this is a cool map" "good job" "yay" or anything else short and unexplained.
