Looking for game type I used to play ~2003-05...

Post by PKP-Stinker » Tue Oct 09, 2018 6:52 pm

Hi all. I used to play UT quite a lot and am now back because I missed it!

Back then (~2003-05) I played on a few servers that had mods something like this: low gravity, no damage (so you could shoot down and go airborne, fly around), and I think the pulserifle (?) family of weps sometimes.

I've poked around the servers a bit but mostly am still downloading all the maps, etc to get my UT current.

thanks

Hmmm that seems more like server settings, rather than mods.
A number of servers are probably set up similar to that out there now.
I know some of our weapons and settings are too.

There is a Low Gravity mutator.
"Everyone is an idea man. Everybody thinks they have a revolutionary new game concept that no one else has ever thought of. Having cool ideas will rarely get you anywhere in the games industry. You have to be able to implement your ideas or provide some useful skill. This also applies to mod authoring. If you become a skilled or notable mod author, you will find people propositioning you to implement their ideas. Never join a project whose idea man or leader has no obvious development skills. Never join a project that only has a web designer. You have your own ideas. Focus on them carefully and in small chunks and you will be able to develop cool projects."

Thanks - I'll be on the lookout for servers with lowgrav, etc. That makes sense now.
