I agree, this isn't a new map pack that forces you to have "less game" unless you pay. This is a dirt cheap character model pack. If you don't buy it, your not going to have any less fun with the game.

Unless your the type of person that frets over the appearance of your character model in 1st person games, or your the type of person who genuinely is concerned about the opinions or random people in online matches.

I think this has a chance too be featured at the end of the year in Pcgamers "Deal Of The Year". Last year the winner was Half-life 1 when it costed only 1 dollar. Sure, this piece of DLC is not much, but its the cheapest labeled DLC i know at least!

Lol, ok, that now is expecting to much. Deal of the Year is obviously going to be the 10$ Orange Box that was out for awhile. I mean you got HL2, EP1, EP2, Portal, TF2, ect, and access to all the mods for 10$? That's a REAL deal. :P

Sides, this DLC, as said, isn't anything major, so I don't see this as being a deal. If they had just allowed custom content replacement, this wouldn't matter at all, but no, they wanted to find ways to get more money out of you, so they make you pay for it, instead of unlocking Custom Content.

Besides the big stuff is free they said only cosmetic stuff that don't change gameplay will cost money to support them.

COME ON, like its not like ea who has millions of dollars to support their games, no its a small company that needs the support so they can pump out the free dlc. Now if you regret buying it so much don't f***ing come back and play it when they add in the Ak-47, katana and the new map. *goes back to eating cold pizza from last night*

what are you rambling about Kilbride? Players can make and use their own skins, so long as they set up the UPL files, and code it to work as a mutator.

Someone is working on a KF Total conversion ffs.

If you dont want to buy the characters, then dont. In fact, you should probably save up all the $2 you can find and just buy yourself a f*king clue. It gets abit tiresome listening to your misinformed negativity over and over again

I like how the actual gamechanging content is free, but extra eyecandy of such costs less then a bottle of pop. 2 bucks well spent, and I hope to see more of these extras in the future! I'm hoping good sales in such DLC will get the mods working towards updates more often ;D. They should get some more voice actors to really give the characters more of an individualism.

Great work tripwire!

YEah, as a mutator for custom content. Which means it doesn't just show up on any server you join. It's a terrible idea these days. Most games are now allowing you replace player models, weapons, skins, ectera, because people like it and it extends the life of the game. If the server yer on doesn't have the mutator, oh, no custom sounds, no custom player models, no custom weapon models, ect. You can't have anything, everyone has to have the same stuff.

Now they can do the pathetic "Well, that's just how UT2004 works.", but you know? They had an Engine License, they could code custom content to work like any other game, but they chose not to. Because then they'd actually have to modify the Engine beyond the bare basics, and then stuff like this wouldn't sell.

Again it doesn't matter if it's 2$ or 20$, the fact is, it costs money for something that should have been free and games have been giving for free for years now. It's like paying for air.

For me, style is a big part of the game. Alot of the default models for weapons are just modeled so badly...(Yet some others, such as the Remington, are modeled so awesomely...), that it actually hurts the gameplay experience.(Bullpup for example.)

It feels like the models were made by one good team and one bad time, right down the middle. Now I wanna replace those models with one I like, that say I found on a Skin site, but oh no, I need a mutator, and if the server doesn't have the mutator, I can't use my CUSTOM CONTENT.

It was a huge fuss on the forums. They said it's to prevent cheating, but honestly, in a game where it's all versus NPC's, what kind of cheats could you really do? Make all the heads bright pink and the bodies dark black or something? Stupid! It only stifles the modding community, which is ironic considering their roots.

TWI is a Trojan horse, mark my words. Great on the outside, devilish on the inside.

I'll address each quote paragraph with a paragraph.

When you download custom content like playermodels that other players do not have, then WHY would they see them? Why would they need to? It works just fine that the player who wants it can see it and only others who got it as well can see it. It is a simple and good concept. As for these being DLC and full new characters, anyone can see them regardless of it they have the pack.

What other games just let you replace all their hard work all willy nilly? I haven't seen many that do that, at least none that I can remember. All quake and UT games do it this way, and it works very effectively. So your saying they should have gone out of their way to make custom content able to replace actual content so people can see eachothers skins?

How is paying 2 dollars for some professionally made extra characters supposed to be free like air? They are completely not needed in any way and was simply something extra the tripwire team did for anyone who wants them. It is hard work that, if they can make a few bucks off of, will do again to give the community more content for the game. Be happy that everything that actually has an impact on the game is free.

The models are fine, especially to the engines standards. Go look at the guns they are based off of.

Do you know what he even meant when he said they can be implemented by a mutator? Or did you just research UT MUTATOR and base everything your saying now on that?

Where was this huge forum fuss? I haven't seen any, let alone haven't seen you involved in anything but complaining.

You are a buffoon. You look just as stupid and clueless as you are.

Any Source game allows it.(CS, DOD, L4D, ectera) Stalker, Call of Duty, Battlefield 2, Medal of Honor, Crysis, So those are no name games? I mean it's fine if you don't personally like them, but they're quite popular.

Honestly, you saw no forum fuss? Go look at the developer section for KF, a topic was made that got hundreds of replies about custom content only being allowed if the server has it also, maybe they deleted it? I wouldn't know, I don't go there anymore.

The way it works is, say you replace the Bullpup with a good model, it'll only show up if you use a mutator, and if you join a server, that server needs to have the mutator. So you won't get it. Now say, you have your own server, and load up your own custom models via a mutator, now everyone who joins will be forced to use them.

How can you even argue this?! The DEVS THEMSELVES SAID IT A MILLION TIMES ON THEIR OWN FORUMS! When everyone was crying about how they couldn't replace models and whatnot, and they responded because you need to make a mutator for it, and the server you join needs it also for it to be visible. Therefore, severely limiting your selection.

How come I've never seen it in source games? Or any of those for that matter. Also UT can have a lot of these things put into the map.

Do you know how few developers there even ARE in the Tripwire community? Most of what it has are mappers.

The bullpop IS a good model, go look it up. If YOU use a replacement model only you can see it obviously because it is does nothing to anyones game, but if you use a mutator then it is ADDING to the games regular settings therefore the server would HAVE to be running it. It is quite simple to not join a server using the mutator, as it SHOWS the mutators each server is running. Same thing happens in source games where a server is running any mod, your forced to DL it and play it regardless of if you even have it. The point of DLing the mutator IS USING IT. Why would someone join a server that has one, but not want to use it? That's just a stupid argument.

On regular UT replacing models does pretty much nothing to anyone but yourself, and its quite useless to do when there are NO DUSTOM MODELS DONE ANYWAYS. I'm sure the devs appreciate you overwriting all their hard work with work that wasn't yours. Have you seen the AK mutator? It is used widely in many servers, but now its being added officially! A new model with custom scripts sounds and everything! Oh look lets complain about it because now we can't use our AK mutators!

Mkilbride fails to understand that game company's like valve have made it big with success with all of their games and have the money to spare on DLC etc. TWI is a small company that has only 2 games they still need support for their work. It doesn't really matter though people will still complain I guess they don't like the idea of new weapons maps etc to be free while cosmetic items that doesn't change gameplay one bit to cost $2 that's not much, and there's no label or "small print" that says you have to pay in order to pay for the DLC to keep playing.

here is how i look at the character dlc. It shows you are not a cheap *** that would sit around and just get all free stuff. It shows you supported Kf, even if its a small bit of support. So to show gratitude they give you 4 player models for supporting them and say "have fun and keep watch for the new free dlc". That is how i look at it, almost like a supporter badge.

Ps. that's why other player can see, so it shows you supported kf, duh

Well I personally would have rather given the dev team 30, 40 or even 50 dollars for the game and have them release updates for free than to pay 20 dollars for a game and then have to pay for each update.

However they did release the SDK for the game (i think) so people can techinically make their own custom updates, skins, mods etc for free. So I am not bitching about this mainly because this is an indie team and the DLC is not needed for full experience its just some extra characters.

However it abhors me when I see the big names charging out the @ss for small map packs or things that could have easily been updates that start to split the communities and encourage sloppy and quick cash ins. Its actually becoming common to hear about DLC 'updates' right after the release of a game which leads one to believe that they are simply stripping or leaving out the 'updates' just to charge for them a month later. This is just me ranting about the big names though and not the indie scene since I know they are working their *** off.

On a completely separate note since I am in rant mode ;)
I REALLY don't like the changes made to the knife animations. The middle click knife attack was a really great change up and combo starter so its ashame that it has been removed or changed to be like the normal attack. I am actually very disappointed in this because I am one of those melee freaks. Just my opinion but I have noticed that I play less ever since that update :(
