[Request] LANtournament Mod/Mutator
G'day to all the coders and modders and mappers and like that keep this community thriving! I have a (hopefully) small request, and something which I hope others would also make good use of.
My friends and I LAN more than we play online, and we've always lamented the lack of facilities to set up an actual auto-scored, winner-announced tournament in our LANs.
Ideally, such a mod/mutator would allow you to set up a list of maps and gametypes with points awarded to each player based on their position in each game.
Deathmatch - 1st place gets 10 points + the difference between first and second.
2nd gets 10 pts.
3rd gets 5.
Team Deathmatch - All winning players get 5 pts, with the number one player (on either team) awarded the difference between first and second.
Then at the end of the map list, an overall gold/silver/bronze is awarded with the results saved out into a text document.
Probably a big ask, but I desperately hope one of the coders here likes the idea and can see merit in it beyond our little LAN group
Thanks for reading!
If you look at my mod MapMixer, for UT2K4, you'll see it keeps session statistics. It wouldn't be a far jump to go from what I've done there to what you are asking.
When I finally get the new game and have played it for a while, I'll start working on MapMixer for UT3.
There's a screenshot of the Session Stats in the UT2K4 version on the site.
Hey thanks Sinx, I'll check it out!
