Excessive Overkill

I have tried almost every mod but even though they are all good there is one that I keep coming back to.

Excessive uses regular Ut weapons/maps/skins but it adds power to the weapons. Exploding bullets, three pulse balls instead of one chain reaction shock combos etc etc. It turns of self damage and increases your health to 300 nad also regenerates your health. It is balanced very well. Each wepon can be used at a specific time.

go here (http://www.planetunreal.com/utxtreme) for more info and downloading locations

I prefer CTF like ost others. The competition is stiff and there is even a league (UTX) for the best.

One of the servers link is on the main planetunreal site on the left under UnrealTOurnament/PlanetUnreal Servers. It is called Clark Kent's Crib. Another popular server is Hall of Souls which you can find using the built in Excessive Server Browser

Download it, play it, and tell me what you think

Anymore questions/comments fell free to post

Hope to see ya

It completely sucked ass on my old computer (the one my family uses)

but on my computer, it is sweetness....

great now I wanna go play some. :p

My best accomplishment was 200 frags without a death, in Excessive. (thanks to the regenerating health that is)

Bah, to me, it's just regular UT with half the FPS, and I usually get 10 :P

yeah you do have to have a nice machine but if you meet the stiff requirements it is a hell of a mod. the best part is its fast paced action.

because there is no self-damage rocket jumps are possible that can launch you from one side of a map to another

im gonna go try and get in a game now

nem: i hope to see you in a game sometime

First line: the bot support doesn't suck, I'm just better than Novice bots. (that was when I was still learning the Excessive ropes, I HAVE since bumped up the difficulty.)

Second line: That's what makes it so fun! If they cut down on the spamming, then where's the "excessive"? If I wanted that I'd go play regular UT. I play Excessive BECAUSE of the spammage. you get around it or you get your butt kicked. If they cut it down I might as well play regular UT again.

Or I'll go back to U4E but either way I will get my overkill fix. :D

like UT the bots usually dont move when they shoot which makes them a real easy target. Also, a key part of a CTF game is rocket (or ripper) jumping. Bots cant do that so they dont make a good attacker. Also they arent good with the xloc.

As for spamming. Yes, it is part of the ame but there are ppl who just stand defending the flag, shooting secondary fire then when someone comes to get the flag they prim it at easily kill the flag carryer.

and U4e is another great "excessive" mod


for anyone who has become tired of the slow-paced action of reg UT just give it a try.

A lot of people think it is just regualr UT with more ammo and spam. There is a lot of skill needed to play and it is a completely diferent gametype then regular UT

I really love the excessive mutator and it is a treasured mutator at any LAN party! I have never played it online due to the very limited server count... Living in Euro-land doesn't really help that situation either :hmm:

But anyway... Excellent mutator!!!

I will... I could try and ping an American excessive server and if the ping ain't to high, say over 30-40 (just kidding!) more like 200-250 I'm in anyways just for the fun of it!:D

Is #utx on etg or quakenet?

I have a pitiful connection. You might ping the US servers better than me ;) But I still manage

This is how I ping those American Excessive servers...

Clark's Crib (unreal://64.23.1.99:7777/) ping 117 (NICE!!!)

Hall of Souls (unreal://64.211.7.40:7777/) ping 120 (Not so bad at all! :D)

I'll be dropping by before you know it... ;)
