View Full Version : UT3 The Horseman Cometh [ALPHA][DOWNLOAD][PICS]

Name: The Horseman Cometh
Version: 0.40
Compatibility: PC only
Description: UT3 GameType and Map.
In the later half of the year 2012, Portals to Hell began opening up all around the world. It is said that December 21st of this year is the final day of man. All that stands in the way of an Earth overrun by Hell's minions is the Order of the Secret Scrolls, an international, multi-generation secret society of military trained Monks.

Each HMC map has a portal, which starts the game at 50% strength.

Players are separated into two teams: The Demons, and The Monks.

The Monks are humans with human-like stats and are equipped with an automatic weapon. The alt fire for that weapon emits a beam, which only links to the Portal in the map, and diminishes its strength. If the Portal's strength diminishes to 0%, the Monks have closed the portal and win the game.

The Demons have an increased movement speed, jump height, and have temporary flight. Their only weapons are their claws, which they use in melee combat. When they kill a Monk, their victim's soul drops to the ground. The Demons must bring these souls to the Portal to feed it strength. If the Portal's Strength reaches 100%, the Portal is powerful enough to bring in a large army, and the Demons win.

The Monk's version of the level is like a gauntlet. The Demon's version of the level is like a jungle gym.


This gametype is not yet complete, and there are some issues with it.
- All custom meshes, animations, the HUD, weapons, etc are temporary.
- The Claw attack uses trace instead of using a hit radius of some sort, and so instead of a sweeping type attack, imagine it more as a stabbing attack.
- Overall, the script could use some serious polish, as right now, its just stable.
- The Gametype still looks for DM Maps. The map intended to go with this gametype is DM-City01
- The Bots don't really know how to play.
- I haven't done much network testing, but I do know it loads and people can play, and everything seems to replicate.

Sounds good. I'll try it this weekend.

Can you get better screenshots?
If not I'll post a few while testing.
