Oh, me! Pick me! Pick me!

Why'd you close the Groupie Mod thread?

Cause I want reponces here, and Im trying to discourage a non-"official" WoD mod.

It wasn't a WoD mod, 'twas a groupie mod.
So what's this WoD mod gonna be about?

Groupy mod thread opened.

This wouls be a simple congloermate.

Simple, people submit finished weapons or items to who ever is running it, should he or she find it any good, its added to the WoD package. Every so often a new verson is reviewed.

Hmm... Intersting. So just a mix of random blargg?

Sort of, hopefuly, mutators made, and submited gametypes would give it a slight focus, but not in a way that requires any goals.

I can make stuff. I can make anything I want? Could I make a sausage luancher? Wait, I should put that in Unusual... Stupid quarter!

Well if its not buggy, and whos ever running it can find a place for it, sure.

Hmm, blood sausage grenade.

Yay! Starting is good!
Is there any package in particular you'd like us to make them in? Right now, I've been making my boomerang in WoDMod.

Ive just been using WoD, it doesnt realy matter, if its something else, I can change it in the compile.

hell, I'm using my default test package, KangW1. Then again, I code my weapons to be non reliant on the package name normally.

I dont care what package you use

Smoke39

How can you, Kangus, if you use custom models and such?

Kangus
3rd Sep 2001, 10:28 PM
none of my test stuff has the model yet when its in the package. Makes the compile go faster.

So you test with standard models? That's what I'm doing with the boomerang (more becuase I'm too lazy to animate it and exec it than compiling speed). Speeking of da boomerang, what if I had it look for items that are really close to it, rather than checking if it touched them?

Postal

I can work out changing execs.

Who's been contributing?

Right now I have the 2 guns from me, based on the quad shot, 2 things from Windex(ports) and hopefully soon some stuff from Kangus.

My boomerang actually seems kinda week considering how powerful most of the weapons will probably be. Maybe it could be a starting weapon, to replace the Impact Hammer.

Postal

Nah will use as redeemer replacement

Good idea.

This has potential.

So submissions are a key factor in all of this?

Let me drop you guys an idea, new mods are springing up all the time, all of witch needs puplicity, you guys could make that work for you.

If a mod team wanted, they could send you guys a few working weapons from their project, witch would be cloused source ofcourse (or no-one would contribute anything), and a simple mutator could be made to use them instead of the UT weaponry, coupled with the abaillity for the gamer to add them in a custom weapon list.

This gives the WOD-mod a potentially constant supply of weapons, plus the mod teams get pimpage, a win win situation i'd think.

Worth a thought?

As a mod maker myself, still waiting to get a first public beta out the door, the prospect of getting some pimpage by sending a couple of working weapons to the WOD-mod sounds quite interesting, it would give us a chance to show the world a bit of what we can do whilst we work on the first release, a preview of sorts ;)

You you want it to be a pack of beta-weapons of other mods?
