Turbo

Earlier this week I jacked up BOT House game speed to Turbo (from Hardcore).

From the comments I've seen it appears most players approve of the change, but sometimes it's a little flaky.

Anyway, I like it.

Los Misogynistas has also been kicked up to Turbo and I added Relics as well. I never played much with Relics enabled but it does seem to add another level of fun to the game.

Your comments are welcome.

    turbo+lowgrav gets quite bad with ping >100.
    Arena Match mutator works better, allowing fine adjustments

    also maybe a nice thing to add is Volatile Ammo (de.u)

  2. Robo-Dude... I gotta tell ya... I tried a game set to Hardcore yesterday and it was like running through wet cement. Hated it.

    I'll get a chance to feel your pain next week as I'm going to be out of town with a crappy hotel connection.

    yea, but the fun ends when half of the stuff is not picked up and ASMD shots pass right through bots

    also low gravity terribly lowers airspeed so u have to pump up turbo to compensate

    So my idea is to increase airspeed and make air and ground movement more consistent by exchanging gravity with other stuff

    something like this

    [ArenaMatch.ArenaPhysicsMutator]
    WeaponSpeed=1.10
    PlayerSpeed=1.17
    JumpZFactor=1.8
    DesiredAirControl=0.5
    PlayerMass=0.7
    GravityScale=1.0
    MinGravity=0.0
    MaxGravity=600.0

    jump height remains the same as at lowgrav+turbo setting

  4. You should run your own server!

    I tried those settings on a backup copy of BOT House but they didn't seem to have any effect.

    Anyway, my intent was always to make a server that I like to play and to hell with the rest of the world.

    I hope that wasn't as rude as it sounded.
