I see thievery 1.3 supports mutators like BDBMapVote and stuff. But is there a way to turn on the mutate for slv2 and other mods?

The problem with doing that is that there are no spawns in the maps for those items. They'd still have to be summoned.

maybe someone could make a map with weapon spawn points
as in UT?

But would mutators work?

Ooh, new gametype:

Unreal Thiefmatch:

Like thiefmatch, but like GA suggested, weapons & equipment spawn around the map. Since the idea of thiefmatch is to stay alive, this could work

The "ceiling" in Flats is too low for any good jumping around on Flats in low-g. You'd just bounce off the sky.

Low-grav does work and I am trying to figure out how to turn it on. The way that Biohazard does it is thru the web admin page but I can't seem to get mine working so does anyone know the direct method. Low grav is lots of fun in thievery levels, you never jump as high as the ceiling ...at least not from the ground.

None at all, then.

In that situation, the problem becomes taking enough damage from falling off a crate (or other low object) to KILL you.

Incidentally, there is a mutator for UT that allows you to alter the gravity on a map incrementally. The standard low-g mutator is about 1/5 normal gravity, but with this mutator, you can set it to 1/2 normal, 1/100 normal, or even increase it to, say, 1.5 or 2 times normal.

Don't know if it could be made to work with Thievery, though.

Fatboy makes you fatter with more kills, and skinnier the more you get killed. Effect only starts to be noticeable around about 5 kills, so it's not very useful for Thievery. It was designed for UT games where 20+ kills in a single round are not unusual.

So how are you guys enabling mutators, on your servers?
Using the command-line, or with summon commands?

I'm always looking out for an easier way of running mutators in Thievery.

The only way i know how is through the web access admin. It loads a webpage that has a list of items for you to add to your dedicated server while its running and then you send it from there and it works.

Open ThAux.ini and remove any ';' (semicolons) you see from the start of any lines.
Start a server,
Make sure web access is checked

After its running goto a browser and enter you IP address/ServerAdmin/
(i.e. http://12.234.212.211/ServerAdmin/)

that should load the page for you and u can make changes from there.

What other ways do you know?

-EDIT- I just found another way from console if you are admin:

admin servertravel?restart?mutator=mutator
ex. admin servertravel?restart?mutator=botpack.lowgrav
