    I hope not. "Enhanced visibility" and hit sounds are for blind noobs who don't know what they're doing.

    The reason for my reply was to show my :eek: (embarrassment) for this mutator - after many threads on the 2k4 server list on this subject - I was under the impression that the brightskins were being removed so that whitelisted status would be given ;) , I should of included the sarcasm tags :p

    Yes, that's why it's required for all the tournaments becauase they are such "noobs".

    stryfe, CC, Lauke, etc.... they must all be terrible players.

    Just weenies that like to complain. "I can't see him when he can see me momy!!!!"

    I like UTcomp only SLIGHTLY more than I liked TTM (which means I still dislike it, but survive with it).

    you probably use matrix as a model :rolleyes:
    if there wasn't this option than everyone would force characters and use matrix as there own, thanks goodness for UTComp.
    I would hate to force models, because the different models add more personality to the game. 1v1 and TDM, would suck without UTComp.

    God Bless UTComp! :tup: :) :clap: :cheers: :notworthy: :crazydance:

    Even if UTComp makes it easier to hit the opponent it still makes the playingfield more even, a lot of people are having trouble seeing even the models with "ok" teamskins (gorge, rylisa) because they are colorblind or have other problems with their eyesight... UTComp makes it possible for everyone to see the players equally well since you can pick whatever color you want...

    Btw, if you are easier to hit doesn't that make it even more important to play smart? I mean you can't just stand in a dark area anymore or abuse the skinbug that exists on several maps...

    It's great to see the timed overtime option, suddendeath in TDM is simply to random ^^

    I'm a big fan of UT Comp.
    Personally I like the hit sounds. (and don't consider myself a "n00b") It's interesting whilst minigunning, to hear how many of your shots actually hit target.
    Many good features and lucky for all you complainers - you can always switch off those features you don't like.

    switching them off is not an option in clan play because then YOU are the one with a disadvantage.

    there isnt much difference between forced models and varied models that have been turned into red and blue glow sticks.

    To me a "pro" that cant win without damage dingers and neon flashing signs for skins isn't a pro at all.

    pros can win without brightskins and hitsounds. however, it makes the game more enjoyable, and takes away from stealth elements (not being able to see the person cuz your mommy doesnt buy you an overpriced alienware and you are struggling to get 30 fps on 800 by 600, trying to guess if they lit up from that LG shot or not, etc etc), and adds to the core elements of the game (mindless fragging :D).

    Brightskins aren't such a bad idea, but UTComp goes about in the most ugly way possible. It's horrid

    Epic did it correct in 2k3 with shoulder lights it leveled the playing feild but does not look as ulgy as brightskins look. I think brightskins and hit sounds take away from the game to bad ladder admins made it a requirement but most clans i have played games with want it all off.

    what "clans" have you played with that wanted it off. i doubt they play even slightly serious when it comes to clan matches and stuff... most clans with even the smallest, remote amount of talent seem to be playing with it these days. unless you are talking about onslaught.. onslaught is like an entirely separate game.. i really dont care what they do with brightskins, cuz i dont play onslaught and wont have to deal with it. :p

    and personally, i thought the shoulder lights were dumb.. "Epic did it correct in 2k3".. wrong, they did it correct in ut99, where no form of brightskin was needed. the shoulder lights was kind of a dumb idea.. it still only helps you see their shoulders.. you were still kind of unsure as to where the rest of their body was (granted it wasnt very difficult to guess, with experience).. but if you are gonna light them up, just light up their whole body.. no reason not to really


    there are so many cool features in utcomp, you just have to discover them and tweak with them.. it really is a good mutator. such a shame that epic blacklisted it :(


    unless of course you think graphics = gameplay, and that its all about pretty graphics. granted, i dont want to play a game that looks like **** either.. but rather than turning the texture detail all the way down and making the maps look terrible just so i can see the players skins, i'd rather just make the players skins look terrible so i can see them and still have a cool looking map. granted, its an exaggeration IMO.. low settings, the game still looks decent, and with brightskins, they still look decent (the old versions with different colored heads were really stupid, i agree, but the new versions dont have that.. at least by default i know they dont). you can also customize the colors, so you can make them whatever you want (its on a RGB scale).. normally you have red all the way up and the other two down, and vice versa, for red and blue team.. but you can lower the red bar for example, while still keeping the green and blue bars all the way down, and you will have less "glowstick"-like brightskins.. you still have the advantage of having brightskins, and now its not a nearly opaque layer of glowing red/blue/whatever other color.. its more transparent. it gives you the same advantages of a brightskin (except their's is slightly brighter.. but it gets to a point that the brightness is high enough that changes in it dont help you much more.. low marginal returns in advantages, if you will), but doesnt look like "retarded glowsticks" as some people tend to say.
