Q. Whats the Best Mutators for 4way games? TDM/CTF

Post by Que » Sun Mar 29, 2020 10:42 pm

Howdy,

So we're looking to implement 4 way games into SmartDM and I would like to know what are the best Mutators available for
4 Way Games both TDM/CTF?

Cheers

For TDM a mutator isn't required (AFAIK), the number of teams is set iby inputting the desired number into the box StartPracticeSession->Rules->MaxTeams (though I must admit I have never played with more than 2 teams).

For multi-team CTF, there's MultiCTF.u and CTF4.u (I can post these if required).

I don't know if this is exactly what you meant, but I've heard of a mutator called ColorMatch. Basically, it changes the Pulse Gun and Shock Rifle to be colored according to which team you're on. It also includes a ColorInstagib mutator that replaces all weapons with team-colored Instagib Rifles. I think it'd be pretty cool for team games, especially 4-way games like you're talking about.

Here's a download link for it: https://www.ut-files.com/index.php?dir= ... tch190.zip

The two I referred to seem to be the ones most commonly included with CTF4/CTFM/CTF[4] maps.

I have both of those, and while I prefer the original CTF4 I gotta admit MultiTeamCTF is a little better.

Principle differences between CTF4 & MultiTeamCTF are elimation and how flags are carried.

In CTF4 elimation is an option where teams get negative points when their flag is captured, and if they get a score that is a negative of the goal score, like say -5 if the score goal is 5, their team is eliminated from the game.

In MultiTeamCTF elimination is an option where any team that gets the winning 5 flag captures is eliminated, leaving the remaining teams to play. Whichever team is the last left is the one that loses.

In CTF4 players carrying more than 1 flag can be seen but the flags are all clumped together:

In MultiTeamCTF players carrying more than 1 flag... the flags are all carried at different angles so there's less bunching:
