XMaps is designed to significantly extend UnrealTournament's map selection capabilities in both stand-alone and multiplayer games. The original game limits of 32 maps per list and one custom list per game type have been removed - XMaps supports 100 custom map lists that can hold up 250 maps each, and can be used for any game type or mod supported by UT.
XMaps also supports Mutator lists that can be set up for each map list and each type of game, and can match the number of players in the game to whatever the map designer recommends. In team games, XMaps can ensure that the number of players on each team is the same, even if the map designer didn't recommend a number of players.
XMaps can also automatically switch between any Game Types or mods you select, while using all of XMaps' other features at the same time. Key bindings allow you to skip or repeat a level, switch game types, change the time limit and the game goals while a level is playing. An in-game HUD menu allows you to switch games or maps at any time, as well as set XMaps options, change UT Rules and load any map installed in UT - even if it's not in any of your map lists. You have complete control over HUD menu access, using the Client Options window..
Random map selection is also included, and although it's based on the idea of my Map Randomizer mutator, XMaps goes way beyond what that could do. Up to 250 Favourite maps can be set up for any game type, and you can set up specific XMaps behaviour for all your favourite mods.
So... pick any UnrealTournament game, create a few map lists, pick your favourite maps and the mutators you like; fire up UT and you never need to set the Game options again. At the end of a level, XMaps will switch to your game type, load one of your maps, automatically set up the right number of players and then load each of your favourite Mutators...
It's about time! At long last, I've managed to finish the new Access Groups and Idle Monitor. XMaps 230 and XMaps Remote Control 014 are now available in the Downloads section.
What's taken me so long is providing proper support for the new features - adding the new Access Groups into Remote Control has taken forever... Anyway, it's all done now, so enjoy! You can read all about the new features under the Server Options section of the on-line documentation.
There are also a couple of new HUD Menu options in XMaps 230 - check out the Release History in the on-line documentation for more info.
If you don't know XMaps... well... it has a series of Setup windows to let you configure all of its features: Support for All Game Types, Game Type Switching, Improved Random Map Selection, Favourite Maps, In-game HUD Menu, 100 'Extended' Custom Map Lists, Change the Number of Players to Match the Level Design, Take Control of your Bots, Set up your Favourite Mutators and much more! Probably the best tool around for UT, compatible with 99% of mods/mutators! Get it now!
