    Duty Calls Rank Ups

    Basic incremental-frag-based server-side rank mutator.

    I want to be a Master Sgt. Shooter Persons!

    Haha. Make it spam random ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: messages whenever you make a kill too.

      ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED:
      Connected to server.

      ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED:
      Played 10 seconds.

      ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED:
      Killed player.

      You ranked up!
      You are now a Master Sgt. Shooter Person!

      ACH...

      Could be indeed funny (or annoying)!

        I will try to make a such mod if you have multi kill messages and other sounds that can be useable in any UT2004 gametype that I can get tell me because I think I will need more than the duty calls sounds alone.
        I will add proper credits on it of course

          I would try something like this, if I only knew how to make popups in one of the corners which actually slides up/down. Unfortunately as far as I know this is not possible.

            @Infernus: Jst use a nice HUDOverlay subclass in combination with a custom replication info (or something similar), and then adjust the draw location (y-component) of the icon to animate it moving up, then down. If we want to do this I'm willing to help out with the Uscripting a bit. If everyone starts posting ideas for the achievements here, we could probably cobble something together. My (silly) achievement additions:
            ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED:
            Shot Teammate (Backstabber).

            ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED:
            Picked up Weapons (Armed and Dangerous).

            ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED:
            Entered a stolen Vehicle (Vehicle Booster).

            ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED:
            Fell to Death (Proof of Newtonian Physics).

            ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED:
            Killed player w/ Head shot (Skull Popper).

            ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED:
            Came in Last in scoring of Match (Born-yesterday).

                I think it would be even better if they were pointless and random (not tied to actual events.)


                ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: MinuteMan
                (You haven't uninstalled yet? Cool.)
                ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: Something
                (We couldn't think of anything and we don't care.)
                ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: placeholder
                (text goes here)
                ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: Holiday
                (Why not try a holiday in Sweden this year?)
                ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: Moose Killer
                (A moose once bit my sister)

                etc. etc. I think it would be pretty awesome to have the entirety of the opening to Monty Python and the Holy Grail included.

                  Well, in my opinion it would be funnier if it would be tied to actual events, that would make for something to do when there are no players to kill (Like defending a powernode in ONS) and could make the game intersting if you think you did everything and mastered everything.
                  But of course that is to be judged by the actual mod makers and arbee's opinion as he had the idea for it.

                      From a practical perspective, it will be a lot more difficult to implement actual tracking of events. This is done with the flak monkey and headhunter awards, so weapon based stuff shouldn't be too difficult to code. If i remember correctly the lightning gun has a few special lines of code for the announcements, I don't know about the flak or whether that code is particularly relevant.

                      This project has the potential to get very complicated if the "achievements" are taken seriously. If they're random though, it should be very to get working, and hopefully there would be a setup file where additional "achievements" could be added. And an option to toggle them off in-game (mutate no annouce or similar.)

                        I thought people wanted an annoucer with the duty calls voice
