  • Hmm... Counterstrike, this reminded me of my Idea...

    Personally, I hate Counterstrike, (Infiltration Forever). But anyways, even HL had this sweet option of putting images onto walls... I think that it's going to be pretty funny for a thief to see a guard, who just got inside the tresuary and instead of seeing valuables he's seeing a huge glowing "Garret was HERE" sign...

    Should be pretty easy to code...

      Yeah, it's like a simple decal... I guess I already saw similar mutator for UT...

        To my knowledge, the UT version only allows use of a specific set of images.

        As nice as it would be to have user-support for images, imagine the lag we'd have to put up with if every player decided to upload their favourite 1024 X 800 images to ths server when they log in (which all other players would have to subsequently download).

          There was a spray-paint mutator for UT, though, that didn't involve user loaded images, but that would let someone "spraypaint" on a wall, "g4r3t wuz h3r3" or whatever, though.

            Some sort of colored permanent pulse ray decal ? yay... I never truly finished a hammer&sicle picture (though you could see plenty of black "hearts" drawed around in UT) because of the decal lifespan. If Thievery doesn't lag with permanent corpses , permanent decals won't hurt the framerate too much.

              It wasn't something that just made the pulsegun spots permanent, though, it actually did colored spray on effects.

              On permanent decals, though: There's another mutator for UT that does make the normal game decals last longer, or even be permanent, and it DOES lag machines quite a bit. My machine pulls an average of 60-70 fps in Thievery, at 1280X1024 resolution, with 32 bit color, high detail on everything, and hardware sound acceleration turned on, and THAT machine was taking so serious a performance hit by the end of a round that UT was nearly unplayable.

                Actually, there IS a mutator for UT which sprays pictures onto walls, which is what I was referring to.

                  We need this mod embedded into 1.5

                  Thief taunts aren't enough. We need visual taunts !

                  I don't think it would ruin the atmosphere at all... only if the pictures actually look like hand drawn ones (with a paint splash sound , as opposed to the HL spraypaint)

                    Aye. It would be nice to be in a roo with several guards, grab the obj, and on the way out, spray on the door. Would be a great taunt.

                      Are you suggesting that theese spray paints will be customisable or, picked from a selection given?

                        Obviously customisable if possible

                          Customizeable if possible, but if it's a selection, so be it. (As long as you include "Garret wuz here")

                          Just don't make the default default spray be a tiny yellow UT.
