evilgrins place / DM-XV-Chicago
« Last post by evilgrins on May 25, 2022, 12:20:37 am »
After the last MonsterHunt map I edited for XV, I both reached out to BuLLdozeR to get his permission to edit his maps and checked out more of them; he gave me permission to edit any I wanted. He's got a lot of great maps, some with unique customized aspects, and there's a lot to work with there.

This map is a medium-large sized deal, set in the streets of Chicago. Details were vague, he's not a big fan of making ReadMe files (only found his email listed under LeverlInfo) but he's made at least 3 versions of this map.

Most of it is as you see, city streets with a lot of open space... but he clearly designed the map with snipers in mind as there's more than one level, and on the 2nd floor there's a wide range of sniper weapons (not all of them rifles) and other types of stuff. That was partially a lot of the appeal for my choosing this map, as many of those weapons are very powerful and actually can make it so players can fight against Xvehicles on an equal playing field...

...even if some of them do look a little weird.

Originally I intended to release this map after Easter Weekend, but then I had my 2 little trips to the Emergency Room, plus recovery time (KIDNEY STONES SUCK!) which caused some significant delays. When I was recovered enough I gave the map another look over, which is a good thing as I missed some stuff. See, there's a 3rd floor but apparently BuLLdozeR was distracted when he released the map as there was no way to get up to it. It's filled with teleports that lead back to street level... but there were no teleports that took players up there. Also found a few hidden rooms on the ground level that had redeemers, but the same access problem.

Nelsona assessed and upgraded the pathing on the map, as well as reconnecting the teleports and adding extra teleports to gain access to the not-accessible areas.

This map is ideal for snipers and non-snipers, there's plenty of sniper perches all over and though I'm not really a sniper myself, I prefer playing this map running around with the weapons (which I replaced all the standard UT weapons at ground level with) over getting in the Xvehicles.

You can get Xvehicles here which you need to make this work!

Hey Sketch ... Hey all

maybe you can help me with the points distribution at Gametracker.
Maybe the distribution of points is also somewhere on the page of Gametracker. But I didn't find anything.

I am surprised by the comparison with Jack7.
I play many times more on the server, but am overtaken by Jack again and again for points.

So the game behavior has to play a role. I am also of the opinion that sometimes points are deducted.
Does anyone know more about it and can help me?

evilgrins place / Proxy Bot skin
« Last post by evilgrins on May 10, 2022, 01:57:29 am »
A very long time ago, back when UTskins was still a site, there was released a skin called the ProxyMan... or possibly ProxyKing. The face looked great, but the rest of it was a generic texture with no skin colors and no detail.

So I kept the head and waited until I found a good body to put it on... and when that never happened, I re-tooled the War Machine skin.

Had all sorts of ideas for team colors, but ultimately I went the lazy route and stole the pants off the Marine skin...

...which doesn't look all that bad.

Found this map a long time ago, as I was looking for all variants of the original, and kept it long enough that I thought it needed fixing. Whoever converted it to CTF hadn't altered the bot pathing, so when bots got the flag they never took it back to their own base to tag it up.

Had Nelsona re-path the map to fix that.

This is pretty much an all rockets type map:

Players have the UT Rocket Launcher
Warlord (UTDMW) has the Warlord Rockets
Skaarj (UTDMS) has Unreal1 Rockets

Originally only put a Warlord on the map but at the last minute I decided to add a Skaarj... as I periodically run bot matches to watch while I'm eating or something, and those added elements make the game last longer. This isn't a very large map, and on their own even competing teams against each other games tend to end pretty quick.

Players are trying to win the game, while Green Meanie (Skaarj) & Lord Gold (Warlord) are competing against each other to see who can get the most kills.

just stopping by here to say hi, i enjoyed playing on ur server the other day :)

i used to be a member of a cpl of clans back in the days... ISP, EXA, BAA, TA and of course dFb, have been playing in countless matches and leagues or cups, such as the NBK cup, or in fragged nation.

anyway, i stopped playing UT99 like 4 yrs ago, because of private life matters and because the game was kind of dying, it just wasnt what it used to be, with dozend of players on the servers, day and night... sad but true, but too many new games came out and ppl just moved on i guess.

im kind of getting back to ut99 but couldnt seem to find any decent sniper servers until i stumbled upon yours lol... after all these years its a bit difficult to remember all the basic things like mapknowledge and dodging, but i`ll get there lol

guess i`ll see u on the servers then

Welcome Pete

Have also seen you play on our server and at the age of 50 you are a perfect fit for us.
Because most of them here are around 45, 50, 55 years young.
I think one is around 73 :)
But no matter how old. We just enjoy the game.

I hope we see each other again and make some good games.
