Monsters in Thievery
 
Any chance we'll be able to see playable Thief Maps with maybe Giant Man-Eatting Monsters in them?

Maybe redo Maps with TvG and AI Monsters. :site:

Or how bout a map where you have to sneak inside an Lair and steal the Queens Eggs, and have two teams of Thieves (So no need for Guards in a Monster Environment)

Hehe, be fun to try to sneak past & loot Grange or Flats with Huge Crazy Monsters searching for a meal, and other little critters flying around to get'ya too ; )

Just ideas. :thumb:

Your enthusiasm and creativity are admirable, but you should know that Black Cat haven't worked on Thievery for a while, and what future work may be done probably won't include novelty features.

Feel free to import any monster from UT into Thievery, though!

Thank you sir. And yeah it'd be awesome but I understand what you mean, it is a pretty ancient game "Thievery", but thanks to everyone who contributed its now an legend that I'm sure folks will play it for as long as computers can run it ;)

Or perhaps could do something small (Not large scale like a map) like an item, a guard can use to spawn a "random" AI Creature.

Guard 1: (Spots Thief)
Thief 1: O snap! (Turns to run)
Guard 1: He's getting away, o wait... I got this (Pulls out a MonsterBall) (Throws it in direction of thief)
*Monster spawns and chases Thief, attacks thief and after killing him, vanishes*
Guards: Wow! Awesome Job Guard 1! You saved the day!
Guard 1: :cool:
-The End-

I think the only thing that comes close to "monsters" would be the SpiderEgg mutator. Must be around on Brodys Customs somewhere.

It's a mutator that randomly spawns hatching spider eggs on the map.

Edit: It's called "AlienMode Mutator", can be found on pg. 1 of the misc files on Brodys Customs.

shame the tob guys arnt about any more. i recall watching a video of them, guards vs monsters, was the unreal creatures. reminded me of the invasion gametype of ut2k4. dont know if they used mutators or custom maps for it but it looked fun. just been looking on my hd, i actualy still have 2 videos by tob for it, 1 on kamasutra and 1 on kings of the desert (which has guards with jumpboots trying to mace monsters in the air :D)

Weren't there Chief's Titanbombs somewhere too? You threw an orb and an angry titan tore anything nearby into shreds. THat;s pretty much what he's asking for in the second half of his post. Just change titan into 3 random monsters and voila his dream's fulfilled.

Trapmaster 20th Apr 2011 07:32 AM

Didn't they throw spiders aswell?

NeuroFunkeR 20th Apr 2011 08:14 AM

Schleicher 20th Apr 2011 11:14 AM

That is highly likely.

Who says we are completely gone? :)

Not sure about the video, but that sounds like something that would happen on Zidanes server. Fairly simple if so: As admin summon all matter of UT items for player use.

BJ whore: meet Mr. Shock Cannon.

Asaltec..SaitoNai 20th Apr 2011 10:34 PM

Didn't H20 have monsters,or androids ?
The wave of incoming monsters made the game fun, because the flying ones patrol outside, makes the thieves have to hide in the outdoor areas too (they also shoot missiles through windows if you open them) Chief once summoned a mess of flashbombs and when the thief ran to get them they turned him into a pile of birthday candles and beta max cassettes, true story. I'm sure promod already allow thieves to create duplicate piles of beta max tapes and candles with a decoy.

yeah zidanes server and sneaky is in it too. i think its more then been an admin altho thats highly possible, the players dont always take damage acording to there health bars but iv seen them die so either there playing with god mode on/off or there health is more then 100+ so you cannot see it which would mean a mutator is running. the kingsofthedesert video looks like a custom version as the lighting is different but i cannot work out if thats just video effects. you think sneaky/zidane would mind if i stick the 2 videos on youtube?

/summon warlord

You really want monsters to fight, load up UT and go play RPG Invasion, lot of people played that one. Leatherman and myself used to run a custom server, lots of good times. Depending on the server you could spend a while DLing their custom packs. Or go find them elsewhere.

pitty ut99 dont have invasion tho.. :erg: i dont think.. not found it anyway lol, i recall your server BA, took me ages to download all your stuff, was great server tho ^^ its still one of the biggest gametypes for ut2004 and theres a looooad more custom content then when i used to play on your server :D

MonsterHunt is the closest thing i can find for ut99 http://www.moddb.com/mods/monster-hunt

BrokenArts 21st Apr 2011 05:45 PM

Thanks Keggie. :) I remember you popping in a few times, oh those were fun times. Still quite popular aye? Not surprised it still is. Monster hunt looks interesting.
