LaserTag is a twist on the team deathmatch shooter! The idea of the game is to have you playing for the whole time, so there's no respawning and no waiting around. When you frag (tag) another player, their shield breaks and they are swapped to your team. The idea of the game is to swap all players in the game to your side.
LaserTag features the following:
Levels designed especially for LaserTag, complete with full custom texturing and cool effects. (Excellently optimised for fast download)
Loads of powerups with a unique system where you can hold on to powerups that change your laser rifle for as long as you like.
Non-stop action using teamswap mechanics.
Carefully made effects for player shields (used instead of health), laser beams, powered up weapons fire, and more.
So the LaserTag HUD has been lying dormant for a while, I figured I'd make some adjustments. I already liked how the shield and powerup indicator so they remain visually unchanged, but behind the scenes it's different. These indicators are now VGUI based like the standard Fretta HUD display, and work off some of the same systems. This means it's a lot easier to place them and move them around. The other change to them is they have shifted further into the corners so they obstruct your vision less.
I've also added the TopBar element that took me a lot of time to design (if anyone's been playing on the server you may have seen some of the horrific early beta designs). The bar not only looks swish and gives a much needed techy feel to LaserTag, it also displays several key items of information. First off, your team name is centrally located and colored at the top of the bar, so you know what team you're on. The remaining round time is located beneath that, and then your tag count for the round is located to the left, and your teamswap count (equivalent to deaths) is located on the right.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like LaserTag. We love games like Garry’s Mod 10 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Bigger and better
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Introducing Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass.
