Hi all :)

Maintenance this Weekend. Service may not available :(


Because my Fun Server is mostly focused on WoP customizing, i think it's usefull to post the changes i made from time to time in a public place like this forum. If you find some missing textures (shown as grey/white squares) or sounds (noise like toktoktoktok.... :D), please post it here in this thread.

Settings:

  • Imperius is disabled in most maps
  • Padpower damage multiplier is reduced to factor 1.2 instead of 3.0
  • A secret weapon have now 10 ammo instead of 1 ;)

Custom Maps:

  • Pho_pokernight
  • hec_werkstattv2rc2
  • monkroom3
  • hec_hurryup_dark
  • coloor
  • hec_elevator

I assume the only maps with imperious will be the ones that it is impossible to get? :D


Hopefully things will be put back closer to default on the pad days though?



This "secret weapon" (hmm, can't hide what it is for long) seems a bit strange. When you collect it where you have placed it, you have 10 ammo, but have 1 if you collect it from another player. Also, it always says splasher when you collect it and has pretty much an identical performance. As injector is by default only used in insta. It would be good if in this game, it had the same performance. But when a player spawns with just over 100% health, it takes more than one shot, which isn't how people would expect this weapon to work. For those that are used to insta anyway.

Also, as it is replacing the imperius, it would be good if it has some advantage over splasher. So more damage or a guarantee 1 shot will kill would make it much more worthwhile. And if possible, it would be good to sort out the fact that it says splasher when collected. As well as only having 1 ammo when getting off another player.

Hi Ben,

that "secret weapon" was never designed for normal WoP-gameplay. But we find out, there are weapon model and ammo packs available in WoP. Because the Imperius is disabled on my server we thought it would be a nice idea to place this "secret weapon" instead of Imperius. The Imperius is disabled on my server, because i think it makes gameplay less competitive. That "secret weapon" instead don't change much of gameplay. It has few advantages so it is ok for me to give it to players they like them.

The ugly splasher sound if you grab that weapon is just a placeholder because it's normally not needed. I think the same about that "1 ammo on pickup if some player drop it" - thing.

Btw.: I will NEVER put a instantly killing weapon with endless ammo on my server, because i don't like insta, as you know ;)

Best regards,
Hectic

I agree it shoudln't have endless ammo. But having a very limited number of instant shots would make it different to splasher. Otherwise it seems like another splasher. Which by the way does instantly kill if you have 100% health and no shield! :D


I'd say the only advantage / difference injector has on your server at the moment over splasher is the appearance and sound. And the only performance difference is the speed of the zoom. I just thought it would make it better if you limited the maximum ammo as low as imperius (or lower - even just 2) and enabled it to do an instant kill. The only reason being is because it is just too similar to splahser otherwise. It will obviously require more skill than imperious as it requires aim. But it won't feel worth going to the tricky imperius rooms to effectively get the same weapon that is already on the map, unless it has a clear advantage.


Just a suggestion as the majority of people who are used to insta would expect it to perform differently. But I certainly agree that unlimited ammo would be a step too far.


But it could well be the case that you are unable to change the strength of it. But if you can, i think it will be worth doing or it will probably not be used much.

Hi Ben,

i'm absolutley agree your view. If it where possible to make a one hit weapon like Injector with less than may 5 ammo, i would put it into game instead of imperius. But InstaPad is a mod, and it need also a mod to change the damage of any weapon in WoP. So it could not be done by me :(

Btw.: The faster zoom isn't the only benefit of Injector. A nice feature is the missing "ping"-sound of splasher that whistle-blow your position ;)

Best regards,
Hectic

Yes i should have remembered that. It also has fractionally faster reloading time after shooting so that will be another advantage.

I am just wondering why more recently, the spray rooms on this server have now got the sound effects from the previous version of wop. (1.2) Very noticeable in backyard in both the tunnel and sprayroom. Both have totally different sounds to the default 1.6 version of this map. Reminds me of the days i played syc many times on 1.2 so many years ago :D

I tried several maps. Anteroom and cabin now have the same sounds as 1.2. I am just wondering if you tried to do this as it certainly is only a recent thing. Wasn't like this the last time you had pad day on your server.

Not that it is a problem, i'm just wondering how it is possible.

Hi Ben,

it seems you have some pk3 files that contain WoP1.2 material or have installed WoP1.2 parallel to WoP1.6. Both versions may use the same directory to save user generated stuff (especially the WoP stuff in your home directory). All pk3 files are loaded in alphabetical order and replace content with same name that loaded bevore if the server is unpure or support it.

Best regards,
Hectic

EDIT: Have found the bug! Thx. Ben for reporting. I will fix it if i have more time to do.
