  • How do you install this as a gamemode and play it? Like, i put it in gamemode, added custom weaponry folders, added content. But can you play it in single player? Or only as a server?

Or only as a server?[/QUOTE] The gamemode is recommended to be played in multiplayer. Recommended player count per map is 16-20. Anything higher, and it becomes a massacre. If you're playing with something like 6-10 players on your server, that's actually enough and is quite fun to play. Also, woo, saw 3 servers on with this gamemode today, one of them had 4 players on it. Joined and played a bit, was fun, despite me having 200 ping.
  • Here's another update. This one is a small update, but it's important. Looks like I had some of my code unchanged and it used one of Customizable Weaponry's convars, which lead to errors/etc. [url=http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=125408][img]http://www.garrysmod.org/img/?t=dll&id=125408[/img][/url] 1.04: /\ Fixed crosshair not working for some people /\ Updated the readme for server owners, read it please.

  • [QUOTE=Knallex;32444041]SVN?[/QUOTE] Actually, no. The updates were this recent because of some critical bugs. Now updates are going to be weekly.

  • I've added in in-game tips, on how-to wall-run/pull yourself up/etc. when a player is in a certain situation. Any other features you guys would like to see?

[editline]24th September 2011[/editline] Not saying the massacre DM isn't fun, just for players who are looking for long-term gameplay with a goal.
  • I am thinking of adding in "Personal Attributes" which are basically perks, but each will have a downside. So, for example, a PA is called "Constant Pacing". What it does is it increases walking speed by, I dunno, 20%? But it also decreases run speed by, say, 10%. These aren't unlockable, and will be free to use (aka no need to unlock them).

  • Also the M249 SAW is EXTREMELY overpowered. Like, Long range with 200 bullets and no spread. [editline]24th September 2011[/editline] Unlockables would be nice..

Also, I thought about unlockables that would be something like: Lifesaver - dispense 100 medkits to teammates Upon unlocking: each medkit given by You heals additional 5 health points.

To nerf the M249, if possible make the spread larger and reduce the damage slightly.
  • [QUOTE=sam6420;32453401]Perks like that would be amazing! To nerf the M249, if possible make the spread larger and reduce the damage slightly.[/QUOTE] Hm, good idea. Here's a current list of personal attributes [quote]Personal Attributes (aka perks): Constant Pacing: + Increases walk speed by 20% - Decreases run speed by 10% Head-first: + Increases run speed by 25% - Cannot sprint left/right/backwards Pack rat: + Increases maximum ammo capacity by 25% - Decreases run speed by 10% Spray and pray: + Decreases inaccuracy increase from continuous fire - Decreases accuracy [/quote] If you have any PA ideas, write them down in this form: <PA name>: + Advantage - Disadvantage

  • <Sprinting Champion>: +20% faster -10 HP <Good with your hands>: +20% faster reload speed. -20% speed <Swap>: +10% faster weapon changing -15% damage
  • [QUOTE=sam6420;32453442]<Sprinting Champion>: +20% faster -10 HP <Good with your hands>: +20% faster reload speed. -20% speed <Swap>: +10% faster weapon changing -15% damage[/QUOTE] The -10HP/-20% speed style perks are something I'm trying to avoid. I mean, how does reloading faster makes you walk slower? :( As for "Good with your hands", I'm thinking about: + 20% faster reload speed - 1 less magazine in reserve

  • Ah, it has to make sense, gotcha, faster reloading - slower weapon swapping?

  • I really wanna play this with 10-20 players! Looks awesome. This is the first (and probably the last time) someone hears me say that gamemode from this type is awesome. Keep up the good work!
