server with custom skins

Post by Baardman » Wed Mar 11, 2020 4:36 pm

i can remember playing on a ut99 server a few years ago where people played with custom skins,
in ut2004 its not possible to see other peoples skins unless you coincidently happen to have them installed on your computer.
can anyone tell me if this server still exist?

There are alot of servers with custom skins.
In 99 it's possible with ValhallaAvatar mutator.

Not sure if you're asking if a 99 or 2k4 server exist with custom skins.
In both series, i assume over 200 servers exist with custom skins.

Do you use ValhallaAvatar on your server?

Well servers can always install custom skins by adding them to their ServerPackage list, which will require all clients to download the skin ofcourse.

ValhallaAvatar will not require the server to install any skins and players will not download any either. It only allows players using a custom skin to see themself wearing it. They are also able to see other players wearing skins they have locally installed (coincidently , as you said in the first post).

No, as it unfortunately gives issues together with ultimatenewnet.
Hanging/freezing death animations.
