  • Options Mutator. New mutator for Swarm

    Stock market are down, recession is here, Lehman Brothers has collapsed and Infested doesn't get any updates. But there is a reason to smile

    The Options Mutator. The complete-control-Mutator. The FINAL MUTATOR!

    - proudly presented by the Space Engineers -

    STATUS: Open Beta. Version Oct 15.
    DOWNLOAD: 1)http://www.alienswarm.de -> downloads -> as -> mutators -> MutAoOption_Oct15_Beta.zip
    2) http://chevaps.com/optMut/MutAoOption_Oct15_Beta.zip
    3) Main link.
    4) just in case link
    INSTALL: Extract to UT2004, keeping zip structure.

    PLAY: The mutator requires the following packages: Telic, EFR, RIFTCode and AoMinimuts. You must have installed these packages installed! You will notice that AoMinimuts (created by Pestcontrol) comes with the zip(including gpl license and source code). Furthermore with the zip, you also get CC's created by Felix.

    Run Offline:Type in the console
    Code:
    open Ao-Rescue?mutator=AoOptionMut.MutAoOptions
    Do not run this mutator together with Telic,EFR or/and RIFT mutator, because Option Mutator includes them.

    Create Server:
    Add "ServerPackages=AoOptionMut" to your ini and add "AoOptionMut.MutAoOptions" to the mutator part of your server starting bat file.

    Features:
    I suggest that you read from here. It contains all info about the mutator and it's features.
    However if you want a little preview:
    With the mutator you can play Dm maps as PvP or Team vs Team, having lives. (each time you are about to die, you teleport to a playerstart your health regenerates and you lose a live.).
    It allows realtime weapon and extra-item restrictions. So you can play a campaign using flamers in the 1st mission, telic weapons in the 2nd, Rifles in the 3rd etc!
    It gives the leader/admin the ability to select camera/alien variations. In addition to what you are used to, there are several new alien-variations (parasite/invisible/multiply/random/customalien) that work very much like Uber mode, but spawn different alien classes.
    Stay-together-rule: based on Big D's Mutator, but with more features. It enables you to select punishments for marines ramboing away too far from their team. Disable it, or choose one of the 4 levels, with the highest level resulting in a 20% chance of a ramboing marine getting auto-infested after 30 seconds .
    Some of the options allow you to make the game easier, like AltFF or the weapon hacks. Some are fixes only, in our view.
    But others may make it harder, up to being virtually unbeatable, depending on what settings are chosen. New challenges for old swarmers!
    And many many many more....

    Because the mutator has many different features, there are many console commands, making a typo in the ini is easy (and then the mutator won't load) and because some variables require special keywords to work correctly, like “rotation”, or “ramboeasy” etc, I created a helper program included in the zip. After extracting it, the application should be in the following path: UT2004\System\AoOptionMutator Helper\AoOptionMutator Helper.jar. It provides a GUI to customize the ini, and gives many hints about the mutator. It also features a batch-creator, helping you make starting files, either for solo-play or for setting up servers.

    CREDITS

    Black Cat Games team, for twisting Unreal into such an amazingly stylish, permanently inspiring game!
    This mutator uses ideas (and code) from the Telic mutator, the Unlocks Mutator by Butters/NoData, BigD's MutStickTogether and MutDMend.

    Created and coded by Sofos, August through October 2008.

    Minor additions/design help/help documents: Lightfoot.
    Testserver: kindly provided by Tchatzi.
    Idea breeding and testing was done by the following Space Engineers: Kjk, Lightfoot, Sgt.Apone, Sofos, Tchatzi, X-Newbie.
    Proofreading help text by Sgt.Apone.
    Additional testing and helpful comments by Moses and FuzzyBunny.
    Sorry if we forgot somebody .

    We have tested this a lot, and in many different configurations, until we didn't find any more bugs, inconsistencies or screaming design problems.
    Still, there are some problems left, that we considered being small, or simply didn't find an affordable fix for.

                              The Mutator is also installed on the Space Engineers server, which has been opened up for playing and testing.

                              That server may be too far away for american folks, but most europeans should be able to play there quite good.
                              It doesn't appear in the (damn) server browser every time, but you can manually connect to dsl.arx.gr

                              In general, we suggest that you read the help file, but if you feel that it is too long, just remember that 'mutate optionhelp' brings up a list of the commands you can use from in game.
