  • Death messages!!!!!!!1111!11

    I just love weird death messages, especially ever since the good old days of Quakeword Team Fortress; there was this guy, Spam Light, that had a really wacky server with a bunch of mods, and one time he changed the medic infect-death message to 'Thwark was killed by Salsa's body odor'. We don't have to make anything say that, specifically, but make things more interesting, and even better; CHANGEABLE by the sever owners by editing a txt file or something.

    Well, before I start, rat-squishings should only be seen by all rats and the squisher; not all players in the game.

    Okay, every kill message should be from a different weapon, here's some suggestions:

    Sword: Salsa hacked Taffer to pieces with the sword.
    Mace: Salsa broke every bone in Taffer's body with the mace.
    Standard bolt: Salsa riddled Taffer full of holes with the crossbow. ( )
    Tag bolt (!?!): Salsa lit Taffer up like a fuse.
    Para bolt (I've done it): Salsa paralyzed Taffer...permanently.
    Fire bolt: Salsa slow roasted Taffer from rare to well done.
    Fire bolt suicide: Salsa now knows not to play with fire.
    Caltrops: Taffer tripped over one too many of Salsa's caltrops
    Mine: (Can't think of anything witty right now)

    Sword: Salsa mercilessly sword-thieved Taffer.
    Broadhead: Salsa put an arrow through Taffer's head.
    Water (?!?): Salsa drowned Taffer out with water arrows.
    I won't bother with vine and moss, think up something witty.
    Enemy cratered while cracked: Taffer will never enjoy crack again, thanks to Salsa.

    Crater: Salsa broke his legs on a miscalculated jump
    Mine (suicide, as with firebolt): Salsa wasn't careful with armed explosives.
    Inexplainable death (getting killed by those rabid bookshelves): Salsa was killed by harmless scenery.

    I know you have control over these! Unnecessary ventilition(sic) isn't in regular UT!

    great idea- this would be a great implementation to the game-

    Taffer found that gravity hurts.

    What a dreadful way to fry.

    Taffer mistook the spiders smile for a sign of friendship.

        I'd like to see one for mario, for example:
        "Guard was knocked out by Taffer's butt"
        And then mebbe a mario themesong...

        Also marios and other special events (while airborne etc.) should be added to the stats, IE:

        Taffer
        OP: 10  Loot: 100  Stealth: 78
        G total KOs: 7  Airborne: 1  Mario: 2
        G total kills: 2  FTG (From The Grave): 1


        (You can always reduce font size to make room).

        And then maybe an advanced killtracker system:
        "Guard was killed by Guard2's mine that Taffer fiddled with." (would still count as Taffer's kill though)
        And just in case: "Guard was killed by Guard2's mine that Taffer/Guard3 stepped on." (try to guess who that happened to...and I got 2 of them!)

        Etc.
        The more details without it being crowdy (crowdy as in naming the 5 people who also fiddled with the mine) the better.

          How about "Gravity is a harsh mistress."?

            Heh.

            For Guards:
            Standard Bolts: SNAFU turns Taffer into a sieve with his crossbow.
            Fire bolt: SNAFU roasts Taffer for dinner.
            Fire bolt (Suicide): SNAFU holds a one-man Bar-B-Q.
            Crater: SNAFU learns gravity sucks.
            Mace: SNAFU whacks Taffer silly with his Mace.
            Sword: SNAFU needs to clean Taffer's blood off his Sword.
            Caltrops: Taffer gets tetanus from SNAFU's rusty caltrops.
            Mines: Taffer is blown to kingdom come by SNAFU's mine.
            Mines (Suicide): SNAFU goes banzai and steps on a mine. Life sucks.
            Console Suicide: SNAFU decides the pay isn't worth it.
            Drowning: SNAFU sinks like a lead weight in water.
            Para Bolts: (I like Salsa's)
            Tag Bolts: Taffer moves toward SNAFU's light...

            For Thieves:
            Broadheads: Taffer makes a pin-cushion out of SNAFU.
            Water arrows (?): Taffer drowns SNAFU on dry land. How humiliating...
            Moss arrow: Taffer gives SNAFU a fungal infection.
            Vine arrow: SNAFU serves as an anchor for Taffer's vine arrow.
            BJ Death: SNAFU is beaten to death by Taffer's BJ.
            Sword: OMG! Taffer sword thieves SNAFU!
            Crack Arrow: SNAFU O.D's on Taffer's crack arrow.
            Crack Arrow Cratering: SNAFU gets high on Taffer's crack arrow and thinks he's Superman...
            Crack Arrow (Sucide): Taffer, most unfortunately, decides to huff his own crack.
            Crack Arrow Cratering (Suicide): Taffer gets high, then gets low. Very low.
            Drowning: Taffer discovers too late that he can't swim.
            Footstep Arrows (!): SNAFU dies rather noisily by Taffer's footstep arrow.

            More! More! :lol:

                Tangentially related...

                My wife doesn't like the screaming sound made by a killed character, especially when I'm playing and she's in the next room reading a book. Can someone either tell me how to use config files to disable this sound?

                If there is no way, I wonder if adding this ability would be only small coding work?

                    I had that problemwith about half of my dorm. I would have the volume up megaloud, naturally, and I got several complaints... I blew them aside.

                    Then I got my totally sweet megacool 1337 headphones, and no more people interrupting me.

                      I use cheap $1 stereo earphones. They fall apart and have to be replaced every 2 weeks, but you just can't beat that price, and stereo is better than mono.

                        Here's one.

                        Drowning: Thief#1 finds out too late they can't breath under water.

                        Too hokey?

                        or...

                        Drowning: Thief#1 finds out they have lungs, not gills, for breathing.

                          Nah, buy those huge headphones that cover all your ears nicely. It's hot and it works so well.
