Here's a little mutator I wrote, mainly with intent to use it on the training server. It will spawn a particular thing at a set interval at random places. Pretty much everything is configurable - see the ini or 'mutate spawner help' for more info (sorry no readme, I'm lazy :)).

Server admins add SpawnerMut.SpawnerMut to the mutator list, no need for ServerPackages as its entirely serverside.

Enjoy :).

woah! so now you can randomly spawn redeemer explosions. Wicked.

Well, you could... I've only tested it using Krall ;).

could be a nice practice. random cows on a big open map for target practice.

We had a GD training map with random cow spawning as a 203 practice range. was hillarious.

Can you spawn INF bots with a random loadout?

Not really. I tried having it spawn INF_Core.INFc_SMale1Bot which seemed to work fine, until a new round started and for some reason it attempted to add them all to the game as real bots.

yes, but their mag will be empty I think

Oh really? Maybe you could have a hook in your code that would kick all INF bots out of the game when a round ends, so they won't come back next round. Having roving, random soldiers would make for a fun training, but even more fun as some kind of replacement for the Zombie mutators. Survive the wave of 50 armed soldiers! Mwa ha ha!

UN, heres your mk23 with 3 mags.
GL and HF.

Are we able to spawn things on command?
Like ammo not on the range.

Thanks, i was looking for that kind of mutator but is it possible to spawn more monsters, like:

[SpawnerMut.SpawnerMut]
ThingToSpawn[0]=Class'UnrealI.Krall'
ThingToSpawn[1]=Class'UnrealI.Cow'
ThingToSpawn[2]=Class'UnrealI.Babycow'
SpawnRate=1.000000
CountLimit=20

hmm also i have an idea for another mutator (easy to do), gonna post it soon.

Updated with Lemon's suggestion.

UN: It would be Inf-specific, which I was trying to avoid with this mutator. That does seem to be the next logical step though... ;).

Oh Boy, it didn´t work... perhaps an interaction with other mutties disabled it? I´m using IBT, RT, random damage, random kill and your shottie mutties, Crowze!

You are aware that it has to be started manually? As in, 'mutate spawner enable'? :) There are no compatibility issues at all... and if there are, it's the other mod's fault :p.

Ooopsss... i didn´t payed attention to that fact... I´ll try it ASAIGH XD

[edit]: It worked as charm!! I´ve combined it with Lemon´s INF_Light FX and I´ve created a new gametype: INF_DOOM!!! 8D

Look at the shots at Lemons thread...;-)

But, finally, it is or isn´t possible to spawn weapons (even empty, but then you could spawn mags near them...) and INF soldiers to increase the challenge???
