Very Basic TDM [Gamemode]
« on: August 17, 2013, 07:51:57 AM »
This gamemode is from a skelton gamemode, and was a very basic Team Deathmatch. Now it's quite complex, and more interesting come check it out! The difference between this gamemode and other death match gamemodes can only be described in a few paragraphs:
When I created this gamemode, it was only really to test my skills, and see how far I could get till I was like, "that's nice and interesting". Well now it's come to the point that I have gotten to that point on saying it's nice and all, meaning that I can continue to update this gamemode and make it better, and worth wild for everyone. Best part is that I take suggestions to the heart, and I really try to implement most suggestions (as long as it makes sense, and it can be used for everyone).

This now is a project and with most successful projects, there is a team to go with it to accept the challenges as a team. My team is prepared to take all challenges head first, as this is there first gamemode (as well as myself).

Though, My team and I plan to re-write the entire code sometime in December to make it more user friendly like other great gamemode that we all know and love. So people can add teams much easier, and make it so it's fully customizable.

Now your part in all of this is simple. To play the gamemode, and give suggestions if needed, and report issues, glitches if needed. I plan to make this bigger over time.


If you like this addon, I would really appreciate a "Compliment" Karma which is located next to my name. That's how I know you care :)

The download is only for Steam Workshop, or SVN. I won't be updating it through attachments on the ulx forum, because it's too big.

Bugs:
Code: [Select]
Bugs from 1.0.9 Alpha
- [strike]The team scoring is currently bugged. It doesn't give an error, but it just doesn't work properly, or doesn't work at all.[/strike] - Fixed

Bugs from 1.1.1 Beta
- [strike]The materials/icons to the scoreboard may be missing, be fixed next update.[/strike] - Fixed

Bugs from 1.1.8 Official Release
- Strange glitch. Something with spawns.. I'd suggest just always have two spawns for each team, and when deleting spawns go from highest number to lowest number. I.E. 9 -> 1
I don't know what causes this error at all, I mean I have no clue whats so ever, so i really plan to never fix it. This doesn't happen as often as you would think though

Suggestions -
You're change logs take up a major portion of your release post - perhaps place them in a 'code' box.
I did a quick review of the other sites/links/groups you mentioned - perhaps describe in a few sentences the basic 'what makes this more fun and different than any other TDM game mode'. Why should someone try it out?

Thanks for your suggestion and advise, I've done so now.

One of my team mates is remaking the HUD, to make it look better and sexy as well.

I have also made a death match like game mode, but I could never really finish it... But because Open Source is all about sharing, I thought may be you may want to take a look at my code for some ideas or inspiration.

Just a few questions and statements:
What was the reason for you not to finish it?
What type of gamemode was it supposed to be?

Are you still working on this? If not, I may take over this and continue coding this. It has lots of potential!

I've completely stopped working on this version. I have a new version that will be released on December 30th, 2013. It's called "TDM". If you look http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=116777393 you will see us discussing the new version of it.

Suggestion: Instead of it being two set teams, maybe make it so players can create teams for a certain amount of money & can join teams. Originally players are on a team by themselves, and they need to either join forces with another team, or they're stuck fending for themselves.
Every kill they get they get Money which can buy better guns/armor/perks like speed increase or they can buy team upgrades which boosts the team's stats slightly.
Teams should have a maximum of 1 member per level. Level 1 = 2 members, level 2 = 3, level 3 = 4, so on, so forth, however team captain can purchase extra member slots.
Team Captains can ally other teams and gang up on one team.
This promotes players being more than just players, it helps everyone become friends and be more social of a community.

Well. As I said above this post, this addon is null and void. It means nothing now, and I'm not working on this version anymore.
