XVehicles is mostly like new weapons. it is not related to game types. Mostly.
So it already support all possible game types.
If you have concrete issues with some game types - feel free report about that.

I won't stop repeating that there should be at least one small, one-man, lightweight, easily maneuverable vehicle. It's the only thing missing in this mod.

Oh, I had no idea the vehicles already had the Green and Gold colours implemented! Sweet :D

AFAIK it is only NW3 problem. All of 3 issues. Since replacement of weapons postponed only here. All other weapons mods must work fine.
Not sure about StuffSwapper or similar mutators. If it do in same way as NW3 it can be same problem.

Checked StuffSwapper. It is replace instant on spawn, like all others mods do. Must be no any problem with it.

StuffSwapper doesn't replace the weapons in the XWeaponsLocker - at least with the configuration I'm using (CS_v16_2, TNTWeapon and a Stinger I've modified). It does replace any 'standalone' default UT weapons that may be in the map as well as default UT pickups (armor, thigh pads, etc).

IDK. Maybe be configuration dependent. I just check way how it goes. And only for 3.2 version. Anyway if not replace on postpone, then all must be fine.

v31

- Replace meshes in WeaponLocker if weapon replaced by some mods (not all supported).
- Add hack for support NW3 in WeaponLocker.

Actually, they at least give you the NW3 weapons, only quirk being how they handle giving ammo (sometimes they give more if you run in again). This doesn't hold true for RocketsUT.

The main issue they have, though, and I'm not even sure if this is related to a weapon mod to begin with, is that bots keep going back and forth between the weapon lockers. This might actually be an issue with CTF-XV-LavaGiant specifically, but I have no idea.

Check latest build.

Bots goes because want pickup what not have. Since class not replaced, they try collect old weapons again and again.

Same as Pavlov's dog, when dog able eat food, but not able reach it to stomach. Bot able goes to weapon, touch it, but not able get it to inventory, since it replaced. And bot attracted (starving) again.

Not really get what you mean about RocketsUT. Also I fail run RocketsUT, so not able test my self. RocketsUT loaded but no any replacement in any place. Everywhere usual weapons. Maybe v469c issue, idk.

I'm using examples from my most recent map edit, although I've seen this sort of thing even while being in an Xvehicle so it's worth noting.

When you kill someone else while driving, more often than not it says that person was killed by your vehicle... but not always.

Fairly often it says the person in the other vehicle was TELEFRAGGED by you...
Image
...which isn't so bad, as you still get a point for it.

But every so often what happens is...
Image
...you kill the other guy but it says they killed themselves and you get no points at all.

This may not be fixable, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

Regarding this...

...I took a tour through my CTF4 & CTFM maps yesterday to see which ones might be good for XV.

Criteria I used were primarily maps that have no bridges or deep water, as bots tend to love to pull a Thelma & Louise anytime those are present.
Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image

All that's left is to test them and work out which vehicles work best for each environment.

The mod is gametype-agnostic, in fact there's already a CTFM conversion in the Unreal Archive:

I'm seeing "EvilGrins XV" on a lot of those, but when I click that it doesn't bring up all my XV edits, only that specific map for the one I clicked.

Maybe whoever set that up should only list me as "EvilGrins".

Okay, maybe some better CTF4 support wouldn't be a bad idea.

Periodically, players get more than 1 flag at a time...
Image
...and they are displayed on the back, more or less like that.

But it seems XV is not well equipped to handle having more than 1 flag at all...
