    [ServerActor] Server Decals

    (Looks like I forgot to publicly release this one.)

    Description
    There are many ways to let your players know who owns the server they are playing on, e.g. by adding a Server Logo or custom team symbols. Another is putting you clan logo into the maps, but that has the disadvantage of requiring custom maps, right?
    Well, not in all cases. Server Decals is a server actor that lets you set up custom projectors or decals for any existing map. These are created at runtime without any modifications to the actual maps.

    Setting up decals
    This part needs some work on your side as you have to do it manually for each map you want your custom decals to show up in. Basic UnrealEd knowledge is a requirement as you have to set up Projector actors to figure out the required properties to use. Also, you will need to import any custom projector textures your server decals should use. (I recommend putting them all in a single combined texture package with a unique name for your server.)

    Server Decals automatically creates a ServerDecals.ini section for any map your server loads. The map section will contain an empty decal entry with the default projector property values, but the example ini in the download also already contains a section for DM-Rankin. You can copy a Projector form UnrealEd to a text editor and then copy individual values to the ServerDecals.ini entry, instead of entering all values manually. While the auto.created section only contains a single entry, you can actually put as many entries into a map section as you want, one per decal.

    Screenshots
    Currently the UTzone.de servers are the only ones using ServerDecals, and only on few maps. Here are two examples from Rankin-FE and Campgrounds-G1E on the UTzone.de Betrayal server:

    Good work. While I'm not crazy about clan logos, it seems like a good idea, and could be used for posting server rules or a "message of the day." I assume once you set up your projector locations, you could change the projector texture whenever you want.

          do you think you can make it so that you can spray paint it onto the wall manually like in CS portable or Garry's Mod so that when you get a kill you can spray a picture onto the all like a clan tag or just a random picture? this would be a lot of fun to say, "I was here, don't mess"
          If this isn't possible, then but at least I asked XD

            Spray paint logos are featured in ChaosUT2.

                This isn't a spray-paint mod and I don't intent to create one.
