    Information about UT3DOM

    If you don't feel like registering on the Meaaov Foums (where the UT3DOM forum is located), here is some important pieces of information that is posted over there:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Contents of UT3DOM



    UT3DOM Base Mod: Unreal Tournament 3 Domination Only Mod

    Domination is the classic style of Domination. It plays just like it did in UT:GOTY. It uses the DOM extention.

    Double Domination is the UT200X style of Domination. It plays like it did in UT2004. It uses the DDOM extention.


    UT3DOM Bonus Pack: The Offsprings of UT3DOM

    Beta Domination is Assault meets Domination. What happens in Beta Domination is each team is placed with either the exact same, similar or a different objective, and the quickest team to finish the objective get's to go into the domination point. The points are stacked up for the team by 1 point every 5 seconds. They keep colelcting points until the other team completes the objective, and then the team who kills the other team to conquer the domiantion node, they spawn in the area of the domination node, and the team that got killed has to do the objective all over again. Once that team reaches the goal of X number of points (defined by the mapper), that team wins that match. It uses the BDOM extention.

    Point Domination is four bases scattered anywhere the mapper wants them to be. For 1 base conquered, you get 2 points every 10 seconds, and it keeps multiplying by two by more nodes that you conquer. Once you have all of the four bases conquered, you have a ten second countdown, and if you succeed, you get 50 points. The average score of Point Domination is 150-3500 points. So in short form, it's like a twist to the Domination gametype. It uses the PDOM extention.

    Omega Domination is like Domination, but there are no teams. It's a free-for-all Domination gametype. It uses the ODOM extention.


    All of these gametypes will be 4 team compatible except the Double and Omega Domination gametypes.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    UT3DOM FAQ



    What is UT3DOM?
    UT3DOM is a Domination mod for Unreal Tournament 3. It includes the two official Domiantion gametypes, Classic and Double Domination, plus many other domination gametypes, such as Beta Domination, Point Domination and Omega Domination.

    What does UT3DOM stand for?
    There are mutliple nicknames for it: Unreal Tournament 3 Domination, UT3 Domination and The Unreal Tournament 3 Domination Mod, but the actual full name of the mod is Unreal Tournament 3 Domination Only Mod.

    What is the difference between Classic Domination and Domination?
    Other than the word classic has been added, there is no difference at all. :)

    You said when UT3DOM first begun, all the test builds would be available to the public? Why are they private now?
    I made them private because they would cause Version Mismatches with the final build, and I didn't want people saying UT3DOM is causing version mismatches. That makes a bad image for that mod, and people can pass the word, saying that it doesn't work, but it ACTUALLY does, but just that they don't know the term "delete old files before installing newer version". At the time, Aalexanderrr and I figured that would be the best solution for the beta builds to be private. I do apologize very much for saying something and going against it. :(

    Will this mod be available to the PS3 and XBOX 360?
    It will defenatly be on the PlayStation 3, and I hope to port it to the XBOX 360 as well (we'll try our very best to make the 360 version free). :)

    Can you list the Domination gametypes that will be included in UT3DOM?
    Domination, Double Domination, Vehilcular Domination, Vehicular Double Domination, Point Domination, Omega Domination and Beta Domination.

    I will be downloading this as soon as it's available for PS3. Granted I do have UT3 on PC as well, but my PS3 is where it shines.

    Though I still think you're going overboard, it was a wise decision to break up the ideas into seperate chunks I think you'll find that people with less-than-great connections will also appriciate smaller downloads from not having all that in the same package. :)

    It's a big pack for sure.

    People will probably have difficulties choosing one of those gametypes.

    that, would be for 56k users. If the whole pack would eb created at once, it would proabably bewtween 500MB to a Gig.

    We did this for the PC for 56k users. On the PS3, it's going to be a little different. ;)

    @UBeserker What I'd recommend is trying them all out, and seing which ones you like and don't like. If you don't like, uninstall teh mod and/or corresponding bonus packs.

    There is a reason why it's layed out like that. First of all, 56k users, second of all, more customizability, 3rd thign, if all gametypes was installed at once, it would clogg up the Menu like mad XD

    @everyone Mind you, eventually, Once Bonus Pack 1 is releasing, i'm going to be making special Editions to people that don't think the layout is a godo idea. So basically, you'd fill out a form (txt, PM me it, and I'd customize your UT3DOM for you.

    Now, how many mods do you know that do this? Not too many. :) I try to keep UT3DOM unique fomr most other mods, in ways people would never see fit for their own way. xD

    However, there's a catch...in order to recieve these special versions of UT3DOM, you need be a dedicated server owner (aka you need to run the UT3DOM mod for the server that is being hosted on an actual gaming server that runs 24/7), or you need to fill out a text file which I will be creating later, to make your own version of UT3DOM, which has gametypes that you only like bundles in the package. You'll have the regular setup from the average UT3DOM setup, which is a real treat for your custom UT3DOM :)D). However, these are a first come-first serve basis. The first ten people per month to send me their ut text file, will get their custom ut, if it's "valid" enough for me to accept. :)

    Anyway, not much to say after that. xD


    Take Care,

    RoninMastaFX


    P.S. Btw, does anyoen like the UT3DOM Soundtrack at all? I haven't recieved any critism/compliments/suggestions for it yet. Just make sure they are consturctive posts and not flaming posts. xD :D

    Vehicular Domination is like Battlefield. I'll have to try it out though.
    I don't like the idea of resurrecting Double Dom.

    Double Dom *anything* blow ass rat, that's why everyone hated it in UT2003/4.

    Ok, according to one of the forumers, an old version of UT3DOM was leaked. I am now inspecting the evidence.

    UT3DOM IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE RELEASED UNTIL April 10, 2008! I'm going to find the culprit and he/she will have ALOT of explaining to do. He/She had NO RIGHT to leak my mod without permission on Filefront or ANY other sources. NONE!!

    Other than that, except Version MisMatches for people who have the leaked mod.



    -----

    Ok, I apologize for lashing out, but leakign UT3DOM was not a smart move. From now on, startiong right now, there will be no more testers for UT3DOM. If you are already a tester, you're ok. New testers are no longer wlecome.


    That is all!

    (P.S., the entire UT3DOM is pissed off atm, and whoever does not confess within 48 hours, things will get very nasty)

    Take it easy... it was just a beta wasn't it? Now you get the final done and show how much the thing has improved! :) I haven't seen any link to this and will not download myself until it's the true one. You can try asking FileFront to remove the file if you haven't already...
    Don't close the doors to new people because of that, the mole is in, not out! (just hire more reliable people next time! :p)


    Been reading the thread a little, and I think you guys should stick to DOM and DoubleDOM and support those gametypes to death. By releasing too many gametypes you'll split up an already small community and it will be nearly impossible to find people to play against online...
    This can very likely be done by Kismet actions in a standard DOM map... sounds too complicated to me anyway, and one team spawing where the DOM point is will give them a huge advantage on defense... so everyone would end up camping their points because attacking would be suicidal and would leave your point uncovered...
    I can't see the difference between this and DOM, other than the scoring method, which could be changed by mutator...
    Those maps could fall into the DDOM category, despite they're single-DOM...
    This can also be done by mutator... ;)

    Also, I'd suggest delaying the release date some months, good maps can't be done in 2 months and, if the 'official' maps suck, not many people will be interested in the Bonus Packs... :D

    Good luck! :tup:

    2 things Ronin.

    #1, i don't think any of us other memebers had an effing clue UT3DOm was leaked, since everything seems to always be kept secret with you.

    #2, nothing can happen to someone we don't know who leaked the files.

    Loosen up a bit Ronin.

    I think he meant wtf is up with all the dom types? Imo you should go for classic and double dom, the rest can come later (if at all)

    So what is the status of the classic dom mod? When can we play it?
