MonsterHunt Team Color Fix

Post by JackGriffin » Fri Apr 22, 2011 1:50 pm

Fixing the teamcolor force-to-red that MonsterHunt does is something I've pursued for quite a while. It's an option I've been asked to do countless times by players and admins. There are ugly ways to accomplish it but the mod itself strains servers bad enough as it is. What I needed was a way to do it that didn't add stress but still lets players choose another color for their default models that didn't break the team assignments, since much of MH modding and coding absolutely requires players to belong to "Red Team". If you force-break this it can screw up team damage, replication, scoring, awards, and generally make the game feel broken.

Well, here's my answer to it: ... 3050#p3050

Install this on server and client and you'll have all the default choices for the commando and soldier models and it won't break the red team assignment. You don't need to switch to spectator, rejoin, or any of that crap. Just select your skin, join the server and enjoy.

I didn't do the females, skaarj, or cows yet. I want to see if this is used before I go any farther. Let me know what you think and if you would use the other models.

Once you install you can check yourself out on my test server: It has both packages.
So long, and thanks for all the fish

This seems a rather elaborate and unnecessary project. Although it could be due to the fact I'm still running MonsterHunt v5.3 on my system.

The option to not be forced into team colors is in the game menu.
You can choose to not use team colors at all.

Look at Jack's rank, he is retired. This is also an old / dead thread from April that didn't need revived.

Yeah, JackGriffin is retired from UT relative most things, so any reply or questions to his posts are unnecessary.
