CCCCHHOOOOCOOOLAAAATTTEEEE!!!

Doing a bit more balancing. Currently it's turned into a foresty sniper/pistol match, since those are very OP weapons. So I'll tweak it a bit to make it more fun

Thanks. It's pretty simple, yet elegant - It's a dual BSP - both of the level models are identical in their geometry, but they reference different skies, background noises, and lightmaps/radiosity settings. They even have their own pallete of detail objects, which are what the grass is. There's a simple button interface that runs a script to make the BSP switch for the client, and since there aren't any issues with the level geometry, and the only changes are things like sounds and lighting, the server is none the wiser - therefore clients can switch from day/night at will. Shout out to DeadHampster and CeralKiller for the help with that - it's simple, and elegant for a solution, but I may as well have tried to climb Everest as a paraplegic for all the good it would have done me without their tutorials and help.

Jesus, that's fucking genius. Behind that poopy smile, TCK really does have a brain!

This is a huge "Fuck You" to CMT. They have really awesome effects and open sauce stuff, but this just so much better. It still looks like Halo 1 but how it should of been made.

Hahahaha that made me chuckle out loud. Honestly if they asked i'd hop on board, their stuff just is so much more advanced than anything else out there. Admittedly they are a dedicated team full of some of the best at what they do, modelers, animators, (teh_lag is a fuckin G), etc. I just think their skills would be better sppend either modding/developing for vanilla CE or a newer engine. OS is really amazing, it just never took off. Its too much a pain in the ass to use for your average player, so they're perpetuating the halomaps "thing" of modders making mods that only other modders play. I honestly done know if even one regular player has OS installed just to play .yelo maps. Its too rarely used to be usefull, and 99% of people that play their maps either download OS then uninstall it after they play a map, or just get the .map version because there's so few people on OS. Tis sad, but some great ideas nose dive regardless of how good they are simply because of ease of use.
