From what I saw in the code they cannot damage each other if the game type is not a team game:

Code: Select all

if (InstigatedBy.IsA( 'UMSSpacemarine' ) && ! Level.Game.bTeamGame )
	Damage=0;
Examples for team games are MonsterHunt, Assault, CTFGame, Domination. There they take damage also from other UMSSpaceMarines.
DeathMatchPlus is not a team game.

Also they are not affected by exploding UMSSpaceMarines:

Code: Select all

if(Damagetype=='Marineexplo')
	return;

It doesn't matter what weapons they're carrying, each UMS Space Marine is completely invulnerable to shots from redeemers and instagibs.
Do you have a test map for this?

damagetype 'Spacewalk'
The code suggests that this damage type appears in Zones. Because the UMSSpaceMarine-Mod does not contain any ZoneInfo, that damage type must be from another mod.

I see, thanks - I've had a closer look at the lengthy readme for the UMSSpaceMarines and it says

Code: Select all

By default, spacemarines and the suits are protected against Damagetype 'SpaceWalk'

If you'd like to add marines or suits to a map where its an "Outer Space" design the maps Zoneibfo "should" be set to DamageType=SpaceWalk and bPainzone set to true.
The suits and the marines are protected from this in the script.

Wasn't sure where they would teleport to ...
Looks like they just teleport off the map - basically disappear - the readme says

Code: Select all

bTeleportWhenHurt will make it seem as the marine teleports out of the level just in time, 
thought it might be handy for a storyline where you have and arch enemy that perhaps cant be killed until later that makes a few appearances thro various levels.

Basically, but I'm still tinkering with it.

Okay, I made a quickie new edit.

Hmm, you could really have left out the 15 MiB music...
I cannot see any problem with the SpaceMarines: because the game type is DM, they cannot hurt each other as I wrote above. A Player or Bot can kill them regardless of game type.

In hindsight, blank.umx probably would've been better.

Because the each-other-damage of the Spacemarins does not make so much sense as it is, maybe the coder mixed up the NOT statement: in Deathmatches there should be a each-other-damage, but in team games not.

I'm not sure that the author envisaged that the scripted pawns (UMSSpacemarines) would be used in DM, rather that the marine suits would be (by players ad bots). I think (from reading through the readme) that the scriptedpawns were intended for use in SP maps and also MH and that the marine suits were intended for other team games (CTF, etc) and for DM. Of course, this doesn't negate your comment but it would have probably been best if the UMSSpacemarines took damage from each other in all gametypes.

Yes, that is pretty evil :tu:

Perhaps you should mention, just in case people don't realise, that SevenB.u is required for it to work (I expect most people will have that but possibly some won't) plus SoldierASLYE702.utx (which people possibly won't have).
