So if you use stuff from it, or play it, you NEED Chaos installed.
Try the original Chaos maps for yourself in regular game modes and do not add the mutator.
.....Shock Horror ! The maps are normal !
None of the maps use actors from the core.
None of the resources rely on the core mod.They are regular normal UE1 resources.
The only reason you would need Chaos installed, is if some idiot did exactly what they were told not to do, and put core mod actors in the map, possibly breaking the map from being used with a newer version of the mod.
DO NOT PUT CHAOS MOD COMPONENTS IN A MAP !!!
All needed resources will be swapped if the Chaos mod is running
If you want to play Chaos in any maps then yes you need the mod, but if you connect to a decent server, magically the files arrive on your PC so you get the Chaos mod !I will repeat 1 last time
Make the maps correctly and they will work for everyone that does not have ChaosUT.
I will tell you what, if anyone makes a map that only works in Chaos, it will not be allowed in this contest.
Does that help clarify things?
Anyone would think that servers cannot send a mutator or textures to a client !
Personally I would recommend that people don't upload their maps to servers that are not configured properly, that way textures and decos will be sent like normal.
I suggested a shared resource collection for a theme to help reduce replication and file size, and perhaps foolishly assuming the servers we will be uploading to are capable of sending textures and decos.
