Combat Suit System

First, the 'Combat Suit' let you know you have it with a pickup sound and "CS Hud Icon". It max your armor to 100. Player can also switch the state of the 'CS' anytime he want to jump higher or normal to access more efficiently roof or smaller entrance (now Jetpack). When in active mode, the 'CS' will let you throw 'Grenade', 'C4', 'Rocket', 'Nuke' and 'Gas can' farther, and if you want to, timing the deactivation to reach a enemy behind cover. A looping sound let you notice the 'CS' power is on.

Implement game system like the 'Combat Suit' and new game mode take a lot of time to develop and also exhaustive testing particularly with RF client/server player info limitation and non specified (single/multi) trigger… I'm now trying to make a mode client/server synchro compatible, where the 'CS' player need to survive the time of a countdown as same time his teammates protect him, after that he will be able to score.

Synchro Start System

For more complex maps or game modes that require synchronization, players will not be able to enter the game after the countdown.

Xmod Team ID key

Each team can have restriction access over specific triggers with this item, any items can also be a key to activate a trigger with this method. I wanted to give with Xmod Launch a new way to mappers to create objectives with this little discovery open many doors, "Trigger - Script Name Item".

New Models & Skins - Players can now be 'Merc_Com' and 'Merc_Heavy' in multiplayer.

Merc 'Grunt', 'Com' & 'Heavy' have 3 skins each adapted to Red & Blue Team. Bigger models are easier to aim & balanced with there toughness. In RF, each model in multiplayer has the same life as 'miner1' that cannot be change, but I find an alternative way by changing the DMG ratio on "collision sphere".

Bounding Box

Experience Red Faction now with 100% accurate Hit Box! With original RF settings, Parker model can be hit between legs, each side of the head (count as a Head shot) and half upper head doesn't receive DMG (all Client Player in Server).

General Gameplay particularity

All weapons are less accurate with there own piercing power and efficacy range. That's mean the player have a GoOd reason to switch gun, use alternate fire or simply hold fire until the distance to is target is in better range. Because, the reticle is bigger and used as a guide only, players also need to take more time to perform precise shot in distance and at the same time save ammo. Traction in material.tbl are change to reduce the movement acceleration to increase tactic near obstacles. To kill an opponent the player will need to play better than him more than before, no "Easy hazard kill" and 100% accurate Hit Box! =)

Xmod promote and use the Anti-Cheat LazyBan130 patch. (included in Installer)

Thanks to visit my Red Faction mod!

A little side Note about the Xmod Project

Basically, like a bunch of others FPS fans, I don’t felt the multiplayer of Red Faction right. I thought that people die very to quickly, the combo of powerful and precise weapons with fast movement let me down. But I enjoy many aspect of the game, the big reason of course was the unique Geo, some weapons also give nice mood and I like the Air/Solid brush system of RED Editor. RF engine like it is actually, with is limitations, wasn’t a goOd candidate to make a tactical mod. Is why Xmod keep the intense action without being kill easily and I think Red Faction worth another chance for people who didn’t love it in the past.

I hope people will enjoy the mod without let there instinct compare to recent game or more flexible engine… Even with a team of 1000 peoples and 100 years, is impossible to make a Natural Selection mod with inaccessible source code of Red Faction. Only RED Editor users can know how complex some Xmod features are build to counter RED limitations. For others, you can judge it like an old school action shooter… Xmod wasn’t supposed to be a public mod, but some discovery and techniques found in the editor push me to release it. And I want to enjoy the Geo Technology with others…

It's sad that I can't make money or spend too much time on Red Faction, because I have many ideas and "Geo Technology" is a very nice & unique feature for an FPS. My future is in Valve engines, but in addition to others "RC Mappack", I will probably continue to build "FastMaps" after Xmod being beta public, and no one know, maybe have fun later in "Red Faction 3".
