Unreal Tournament 2004 Random Ladder Mod
By minimini815

The purpose of this mod is to increase the re-playability of the campaign (ladder) by allowing levels to take place on a variety of maps. Maps will be randomly chosen from an expanded pool.

The mod requires BP 2, CBP 1-2, and UCBP 1-4

If you want to add more custom maps to the rotation, or don't like certain maps, or have some other reason, download the source files for the mod where I've included a simple 10 minute guide describing how to customize the mod for yourself.


Version 1.0:
//General
- Larger random map pool per level
- Larger map pool for Head2Head
- Tier 3 teams can now challenge Head2Head
- All DM maps (including custom maps) are eligible for Bloodrites (meaning they will be included provided they match the player count)

//Ladder Balance
- Changed enemy team tier encounters
A. DOM and AS changed from 2 - 3 - 1 to 2 - 2 - 2
B. CTF and BR changed from 3 - 3 - 2 to 2 - 4 - 2
- Changed all CTF and DOM score goals to 3
- Changed DM 2 score goal to 15 (from 10), DM 4, 5 score goals to 25 (from 15, 20, respectively)
- Changed TDM 1 score goal to 25 (from 30)
- Changed CHAMP 1 score goal to 70 (from 35)
- Changed Head2Head score goal to 10 (from 15)
- Changed Bloodrites Normal score goal to 50 (from 25)
- Changed Bloodrites InstaGib score goal to 100 (from 35)
- Changed AS ladder to randomly decide which team attacks first
- Changed first CTF map to 6 players (from 8)


//Other Balance
- Credit rewards for multikills and killingsprees have been halved
- With Bloodrites you can now only take two members per team
- Cost of Bloodrites reduced by 1/3 (Cost is still refunded on victory)
- Default rematch/challenge chance (H2H or Bloodrites) reduced from 30% to 20%


Knwon Bugs
Bloodrites - after winning the gui page for swapping teammates does not appear. The fix is you are (invisibly) given credits equal to the cost of the bot and can purchase him from the teammanagement window

Game sometimes crashes on team draft during qualification (DM5)

Sometimes you are kicked back to main menu after a cutscene plays

Phantom Matches team names don't load

Great mod, but sadly it doesn't work with Ballistic Weapons' SinglePlayer Campaign Addon (which allows to play ladder with Ballistic Weapons), which works by replacing xgame.u file (I took BW mod from here: Steamcommunity.com.
If you install both mods, Random Ladder will override BW ladder addon, so you get new maps but not Ballistic Weapons in ladder (BW in instant action works just fine). The only way I found to make BW ladder addon work is by uninstalling this addon and limiting yourself to default maps, which is just not great.
Is there any way to make both mods work alongside each other? Having both new maps and new weapons in campaign ladder would be a breath of fresh air to this classic.

You are still able to make Ballistic Weapons or any other Mutator work in the Singleplayer Campaign with this Random Ladder Mod.

Just download the MOD Source, stick to the Guide there and append your wanted Mutators to the end of every "URLString=" in the following files before compiling with "ucc make".

UT2K4LadderInfoa.uc
(search for "DefaultUrl=" instead "URLString=" in following files)
UT2K4SP_CGBloodRitesa.uc
UT2K4SP_CGManoEManoa.uc
UT2K4SP_Challengea.uc

Example:
URLString="?TeamScreen=true"
gets Changed to
URLString="?TeamScreen=true?Mutator=BallisticV25.Mut_BloodyHell,XGame.MutSlomoDeath"

(mutator names can be found in the console after starting a dedicated server)

Have been waiting years, "YEARS" for a mod like this. You just made single player more enjoyable and less stale for ut2004 mate.
