Now this is a great addition to the AVP community. It does away with the constant compalint of "SK" and "You lousy killspawn or skieer." This little beuty gives players a chance to ctahc there breath when they spawn or respawn into the world of AVP.
It is a server-side only(means only someone who's hosting a game.) mod that creates a spawn area.
within this spawn area the player who spawns cannot be harmed or killed and may do almost whatever he\she wants.. except jump, jumping kills the spawn area. you can make adjustments to your AVP configuration witohut worrying about getting killed or run to the rest-room thow you have to die first because it only activates when you die and respawn. And you can't shoot at anyone else while in your safe zone either, or pick-up ammo. in essance you become a spectator of sorts..
it's a great mod!
=============================================== AXP1097 FINAL MOD FOR ALIENS VERSUS PREDATOR 2 v22.214.171.124 OCTOBER 28, 2003 =============================================== I. FEATURES AND MODIFICATIONS II. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS III. KNOWN ISSUES VI. CREDITS V. DISCLAIMER The AXP1097 MOD is not officially supported by Monolith Productions, Inc. or Fox Interactive. NOTE: This mod is specifically designed to work with AVP2 version 126.96.36.199. Using other modifications or on older versions of AVP2 may lead to unpredictable results. This is the MICROSOFT WINDOWS 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003 version. This will NOT run on Linux... period! I. FEATURES & MODICIATIONS __________________________________ This version is a server-side mod which has several features. These features are: <- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -> Spawn Protection Mode has been provided to spawning players. Spawn Protection Mode protects players when spawning. While a player is in Spawn Protection Mode, he/she will not be able to attack or be attacked. They will be able to do many other functions, however. When a player spawns, they will be protected indefinitely (DM, TDM) or for 45 seconds (EVAC, HUNT, SURVIVOR, OVERRUN) ... or ... until any of the following criteria is met: (1) Player jumps at any time. (2) Player moves (includes pouncing) exactly 500 game units (approx. 30 feet) from spawn point. This gives adequate distance for spawning players to move out of harm's way or spawn campers prior to exiting spawn protection mode. Upon completing any of the above listed tasks, the player will be immediately removed from spawn protection mode and will be vulnerable to attack. Players be allowed to most tasks while still in spawn protection mode such as: (1) Cloak (if predator) (2) Change vision modes (3) Turn and/or straffe (4) Move a few feet or so (5) Crouch (6) Send messages (7) Switch weapons (8) Fire weapons (doing no effect) (9) Taunt (10) Adjust settings (hotkeys, video, sound, commands, etc) and the list goes on... If an alien player pounces from spawn protection mode, any victims within the spawn protection leash range will be uneffected by the pounce attack. If the alien finishes the pounce within his spawn protection leash, he will remain in spawn protection until one of the above listed criteria is met. If the pouncing alien exits the leash distance at any time during the pounce, he will immediately exit spawn protection mode. That means he could be in mid-air when he exits protection mode. It is important to note that players that are in Spawn Protection Mode are somewhat invisible to other players (except aliens as they can see the aura). (The next release will sport a no-aura function for spawn mode players so there will be no mistaking a spawning player by aliens.) Players in Spawn Protection Mode will not be able to pickup ammo. <- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -> New server commands are available.
