File Description

They've finally released another version of Quake 4 Weapons of Destruction. They've got a fully working tarzan hook (swinging hook) as well as all the new weapons features that were to be released in 2.8. They've incorporated features and cvars from BaseFT, such as team and enemy colors. Weapons, items, and powerups can be removed by cvar as well as their respawn times.

So: better weapons, cvars for the server admins, a swinging hook, and a pimp'n good time.

Introduction -----------------------------------------------------------

Q4WOD is the continuation of the Quake 2 mod, Weapons of Destruction. It
has been a joint development between members of Brand X and HHR. WOD is
a fast paced, action packed mod with weapon improvements and features.

This is not an excessive mod, but a balance of brutal weapons and ballet
of killing instinct.

Requirments ------------------------------------------------------------

As far as I know, this will not work with the Quake 4 Demo.  Outside of 
that.  All you need is the latest quake 4 patch, which can be found on
id's site:


Installation -----------------------------------------------------------

Unzip the contents of this mod into your Quake 4 directory.  It will 
create a folder called "weapons".  If you have a previous version of WOD
please delete it for this is a complete release.  

The mod should be placed/installed like this:


To run the mod, you can select it from the "MOD" menu ingame
by selecting "Q4WOD v2.9".  You can also create
a new shortcut to the quake4.exe and and the line

+set fs_game weapons

Configuring ------------------------------------------------------------

There are several features you need to consider prior to playing the MOD
or you missing half the fun... well most of the fun.  On the main menu
page of Quake 4, there is a new menu called "WOD SETTINGS".  From here
you can bind keys for the Altfire, Hook, and Weapon Drop.  Additionally
you can set other settings.

ALTFIRE - Key used for firing the weapons secondary fire.
HOOK - Key for use of the Grapple Hook.
WEAPONDROP - Key used for dropping your weapon in Multiplayer

Ambient Lighting
Multiply player only feature that removes ambient lights and uses world
lighting instead.  This increases brightness of the maps and boosts you
FPS.  It can be adjusts to desired setting.

Enemy Color & Team Color
Entering an RBG color value to set the colors of enemy and friendly
 players in MP. Works like this:

	R = Red
	G = Green
	B = Blue
	If you wanted all the players to be a solid red: 1 0 0
	For black: 1 0 1

	Just think back to grade school and mixing colors.

Q4WOD Stuff ------------------------------------------------------------

This is a basic outline of what you might find in the mod.

Weapons ----------------------------------------------------------------

	SLOT 1: Blaster / Big Gun

	FIRE1 - Shoots the "charged projectile" that causes more damage.

	FIRE2 - Holding the fire button will charge the blaster into
		Big Gun mode.  Once the blastered has reached full
		charge, it will make a sound.  Releasing the fire button
		will launch a bill ball of death.

	FIRE2 - Launches minature rockets and a fast rate.


	SLOT 3: Shotgun / Slug Gun

	FIRE1 - Same as before, but with a bit more knockback.

	FIRE2 - Launches a large slug that does a lot of damage.  The

	FIRE2 - Shoots several shards of bouncing nails at once.

	FIRE1 - Shoots a slow move ball of death with a lot of damage.

	FIRE2 - Projectile moves very fast and does less damage.

Features ---------------------------------------------------------------

	Tarzan Laser Hook
	Very similar to the one in Q2 WOD, but uses a laser instead of 

	For those that don't know what a tarzan hook is, it allows you
	to swing.  You can uses your movement keys while hooking to
	change your direction of swing.  Basically it works like a 
	swing would in the "real world"

	mates in MP.

	If you pickup a power up, such as Quad Damage, every member of 
	your team will also get it.

	In none team games, people will randomly recieve powerups on


	Hud & Main Menu
	New hud that, we believe, doesn't block your view and provides
	ease of information. The main menu has a new wod theme.

	Health & Armor
	The rate of which you regenerate and loose health/armor points
	has been increased.  This means that it will take longer to
	generate points, but you will keep them longer.

Bug List ---------------------------------------------------------------

Spectators will also receive powerups with "Team Powerups".  All this 
does is create a powerup effect where ever the spectator is hovering...
So you might see ghosts.

A few glitches with the Lightning Gun - sounds and fire.

Hook effects sometimes remains after high lag and player death.

If you turn on any of the nospawn cvars and restart the map, anyone
joining the server during the restart will still see items that were
removed, but can't pick them up.  They'll need to reconnect.

We are working on making a time delay for the hook.
