What is w00t?

Post by EvilGrins » Thu Feb 16, 2017 8:55 pm

Poking around for CTF maps to edit on mapraider, ideally to put the Cyberus on.

Found this mappack · http://www.mapraider.com/maps/unreal-to ... -W00t-vol2

It's all w00t.

I get it's maps with jump-pads all over the freaking place... but what does w00t mean exactly?
Did someone just start labeling jump-pad maps "w00t" for no particular reason?!?

One of the first maps - perhaps even the first one - with that jump pads was CTF-w00tabulous AFAIK.
Perhaps they have taken it from that map?

I take it back! Let's move on to #zandrama before they appear! Getting kicked from #zandronum by w00tness seems like a mostly bad idea...

I believe it was a naming convention and it was a good thing. I found also a w00t related contest with some winners... Eh, nice stuff, nice maps, good maps... once again swJumpad it's a good thing... done by community.

Yeah, take as example CTF-W00tabulous. 1 of the most popular maps still to date. What a rush.

Derdak and XYZ 8000 did also other nice maps not only at w00t contest - those guys for me are real heroes - of course, in the league for "LowPolys packs" others were doing great jobs (not 100%) but... in those times all of them were busy to smooth game and not overloading stuff with no purpose - I was always aiming such Maps, MBot is a bitch there in GodLike level...

You can see someone's playing a w00t style map(I guess it is a Quake), so these kind of maps probably existed even before :?:

I miss CTF-W00tabulous (http://ut-files.com/index.php?dir=Maps/ ... bulous.zip) in that mappacks.
Also a very good one is CTF-XMC-Frozenw00t (http://ut.noccer.de/Maps/Capture_the_Fl ... enw00t.zip) not included there.
The other maps are indeed very good too...

And the rest is W00t at LOL or LOL at W00t. Some of those are stupidly set at kill zones, by using other pawns into maps or by overriding number of touchers for a trigger = FAIL the death, completed by insanity of useless "%o" and "%k" crap messages. Else, others have no clue which ammo is for which weapon = No load - dedicated to BotPack's default goofing.
Trivia: In read-me I found some words related to A.I., and is exactly the point where A.I. might badly fail with those trash kill zones.

If CTF-Face has a good thing, that one is the thing showing How To develop a DEATH when pawn is falling, addressing ANY LIFE FORM, the rest is a lousy guessing with SpecialEvent/s and stupid collisions size.

To summarize: In order to set up an "Extreme W00t Server" (as in description), first we have to filter crap outta package, then we can play happy.
