CTF4 for UT2004! NOW OUT! DETAILS INSIDE!

*Copied Ad Verbatim from the original Atari Community post*

Okay, here it is!

After months of work, I am finally ready to officially announce my next project, which is now only weeks away from being ready to release:
CTF4 is coming to UT2004!

Description:

CTF4 is exactly what it sounds like: CTF with 4 teams.

Why would 4 teams be better than 2 you ask? Simple: More action, more choices, more strategy.

With four teams the objective becomes more than just attacking the enemy flag and defending your own. You must think carefully about which team to attack. Because other teams can get points without ever attacking your base (they can attack the other teams instead) - it becomes important to watch what all the teams are doing. Just because you have a strong defense does not mean you will win!

Oh yeah, and it'll also come with TDM4 (4 way team deathmatch.) I needed to create that as a base before I could even begin CTF4.

Here are some features and pictures to go with them: (click any screenshots to see a big version)

4 teams, 4 flags!

New Green and Gold Skins

New menus: Preview the green and gold skins, and set up the roster for all four teams!

Many different scoring options: Play the game how you like it

Team Colored Weapons!

Now, we are short on one thing: Maps! We have 3 or 4 that we will be launching with (1 original map and 2 or 3 conversions) but we would love to have a lot more. If any talented mappers would like to make some quality maps to be released with CTF4, please email me as soon as possible! Please include in your email a link to one of your publicly released maps so I can see your work. 3 team maps are also welcome, although we would like to have a good number of 4 team maps.

Email me at Overload@planetunreal.com

And for those wondering: Yes, I will be working on ONS4 once CTF4 is complete. I will also be working with the Classic Domination team to bring 4 team support to that awesome gametype as well.

Okay, I'd like to answer a few questions now.

Yes, I am also planning on doing some sort of four way BR as well.

Yes, there will be an option that will make the position indicators on the HUD point to the current location of the flags, not the bases.

We have green and gold skins for every skin that comes with UT2004, as well as the ECE.

Yes, you will be able to set up the game so the scoring is just like normal CTF (that is the default.)

Yes, it will support bots 100%. Not only that, but they are SMART. They will choose which team to attack intelligently, and the squad AI allows them to pick up multiple flags, carry flags back, and all sorts of things. Single Player gamers rejoice.

Also, CTF4 will fully support the voice recognition feature in UT2004. You can tell which bots to attack which teams, and they'll do it.

Also also, I will be running an official CTF4 server (maybe 2 if it's popular) so you can be sure that there will be a place to play online. Go ahead and play on one of my servers currently running and see how well you ping. I would like to know how well they perform: http://www.apartment167.com/ut2004stats/

-Loric- asked how green and gold skins will be handled in these mods, concerned that you will only get to use the models that we have made skins for. You're in luck! I thought ahead for people like you. There is an .ini file that specifies which skins are allowed and what packages they are from. If you create your own skin with green and gold versions, all you have to do is put it in the ini file, and you'll be able to play with it in CTF4. If someone chooses a model or skin that does not have green and gold versions, their player will fall back to the default model.

*EDIT: 11/19/2004*

The Mod is NOW OUT for you to download! There will be two versions, a UT4MOD and Manual Install, in 7Zip and Zip flavors.

BeyondUnreal mirrors coming soon, but until then...

GET YOURS!

All we need now is Orange to set up a 3TDM server and we'll be having some classic UT fun

I've been involved since early September.

I'm the map churner for the most part. Can't wait to see what maps the community will do though!

I still want old DOM back... at least I can run around in a green/gold skin and pretend...

That and the sad part is this will probably get added to FragBU before I ever get to see 1 vCTF map on there

Ok...I don't have a clue what 'churner' means...Unless you're cooking the mappers dinner or something

And for maps...CTF-4 Citadel shouldn't be too hard (one bridge leading to base to the left, central bridge to some 'island', right bridge connects to the right base), and maybe CTF-4 Grendelkeep isn't too hard either (mirror the bio rifle stair-room, and somehow keep connection to the center supershield room)

Ah, what am I rambling about...I can't map good enough to mess with retail maps

Basically, I'm the one cranking out maps.

With that said, there'll be at least Three maps in there (Probably more):

CTF4-Joust (I think this alone sells a lot of FragBU peeps )
CTF4-Crossroads][ (By the author of the original CTF4 mod for UT99, David "Uncommon" Catmull)
CTF4-Chrome (Converted by myself )

There's also a fourth map that is sort of there, but since there's no public word on it, I won't reveal it.

I've also got two more maps done, those'll be added pending acceaptance from the original authors, since they're both Third Party maps. One of them, however, went through conversion hell, so I've gotta track down who the original author REALLY is.

My vote: Eventually. As he said, we plan on ONS4 next, and then he's gonna help the CDOM teak I guess.

And Damn, Hal beat me to the announcement by like a full day. You bastard.

I honestly don't think I'll be going back to regular CTF once this is released The fun and mayhem you get from 4 team games is incredible, and link that to my own custom weapon set and characters and you could say I'll be in gamers heaven

***HOT NEWS***

Teddie Tapawan, author of the original CTF-FaceClassic, is going to create a CTF4 version.

Face fans, rejoice - your future has arrived. Are you ready to go?

This is GREAT, the old CTF4 rocked, and this should rock even more


but, tell the mod team doing this that if they don't include support for vCTF4, i will hunt them down and tear them limb from limb ^_^

In version 1.0: No chance.

In version 2.0: Almost certainly.
