Today, I'm gonna present you my new Title Pack: Interface
Why this name? Simply because I didn't create this title pack just for one mode.
The only thing included in this title pack is the objects, from Nadeo.
My goal is to offer to people the ability to let players play their gamemodes with objects without having the constraint to download another title pack
for each mode.
The reason of that is that modes aren't always as good as we think, and it's necessary to test them with players.
To host a script on my title just use Interface@darkminus
as title for the dedicated server configuration (I suppose you know how to do that if you read this line
), and it will appear on it
That's where Interface is useful. Because anyone who have this title pack will be able to play your mode.
Let's say it's a kind of "Storm" title pack for objects.
There are currently one (or two, depends when you are reading this ^^) modes running in this title yet.
The first one is Arena Duel
? Pretty easy, it's a kind of Quake-Like duel mode. 1v1, 10 Minutes, Items, DeathMatch.
The maps I currently use are Quake remakes made by Kryw for Combo. But I'd like to see more specific maps for this mode, so I'm waiting for your maps!
The only advice I could give you about maps is that they shouldn't be too big
, because there are only 2 players
on the map, and it's boring to search your opponent during 40secs... ^^
The other thing is that you should also add more than 2 spawns
, so it makes the spawning more "random" and opponent cannot wait you at a spawn.
You've got no weapon at start
, and you have to pick items
to get weapons and new ammo slots.
1 Laser, 1 Nucleus, 2 Arrows, 6 Rockets.
When you die, you loose all items you picked up and you have to get weapons again.
Items appears 15 seconds after the beginning of the round. Then respawn is 45s for laser, 30 for other weapons, 40 for armors.
This has been tried by a few people yet, and it's seems that they like it, so even if you have some doubt on it, give it a try! ;D
The other mode (not realeased at that date) is Melee Ultimate
, a mode I already created before, but never updated.
This is basically a Melee mode, with items.
are the same than for Arena Duel.
is the same than original Melee Mode.
To mappers: For both modes, the map type is the basic MeleeArena. Caution! If you wanna add items on your map, you should only do it on the Interface map editor, else it won't work!!!
Note: For both modes, there is an option to enable the beta 2 gameplay (I mean Microjump and old Walljump). It is located in the server options.
Please, keep in mind that even if I added that in my scripts, it will be removed when Nadeo decides it. Sorry for any inconvenience!
From today, I'm gonna release every changelog of updates
I'll do, here.

Keep in mind that I'm trying to do my best to make this title pack as good as I can, and for modes as balanced and fun that is possible !
That's all! I hope to see you on Interface Title Pack!
