It was December 18th 2002 and I was thinking about Christmas and the Christmas skin pack by Fuz2y (fuz2y@netcabo.pt) - I thought it would be fun to make a little mod to use these skins with a Christmas gametype - Santa Squad 2002 was born!

It's now a year later and I have decided to re-release the mod earlier with a couple of improvements, and also combine Fuz2y's skins so you don't have to make two downloads.

There are now two new Christmas gametypes, Xmas Infiltration and Xmas Assassination. In Xmas Infiltration the Santa Squad must recover Santa's sack of toys and return them to the extraction zone. In Xmas Assassination, the Santa Squad must assassinate the Xmas Wrecker's leader who is trying to flee with Santa's sack.

Santa Squad is all in good fun, and is one of those novelty mods that is great to wack on your server during the days leading up to Christmas.

Thanks to Fuz2y's for his Xmas skin pack!

NOTE: This mod should be compatible with all mods like OSP, check the Information section on how to do this. Also it will only work on specific maps, check the Information again.

Enjoy :)

===================================================
*Information *

Give the fact that this mod replaces the Prometheus team with the Santa squad, 
it limits the amount of maps you can play on the custom gametypes on. The maps 
which are know to work with Xmas Infiltration/Xmas Assassination:

Map List
========
Raven Office (mp_raven)
The Shop Under Siege (mp_shop)
Airport Warehouse (mp_air1)
Hospital (mp_hos2)
The Shop Invasion (mp_shop2)

Basically any Infiltration map where the Blue team use the Prometheus skins, so you
can use custom maps too if they have Prometheus on the Blue team.

Other gametypes like CTF, TDM etc can also be used with this mod, although you have
to find out which maps support a Prometheus team (doesn't have to be Blue).

The best way of doing this is by adjusting your map cycles to play only these maps, I have
inlcuded map cycles for Xmas Infiltration and Xmas Assassination as an example.

Also this mod should in theory be compatible with most other mods like OSP etc. All you
should need to do is take the santasquad03.pk3 file out of the mod and put it into the
other mod's directory, like SOF2/OSP. Failing that it can be put in your SOF2/BASE/MP 
directory and it should work there. The mod will need to be at least version 1.02 though,
or version 1.03 as the custom game types may not show up in the early versions.

Finally, don't take this mod seriously, it is just a bit of fun before Christmas! :)
			  

===================================================
* Installation *                

1. Unzip "santasquad03.zip" to your 'Soldier of Fortune 2 : Double Helix' 
   directory, with directory structures (folders) intact. 

   Usually: "C:\Program Files\Soldier of Fortune II - Double Helix\"

2. Run the included batch file 'start.bat' or create a shortcut 
   to your SoF2MP.exe with the command line '+set fs_game santa03'

   Alternatively you can go into Mods (the Tool Icon) and scroll down until 
   you find "Santa Squad: Christmas Warfare", activate it by double clicking on it or 
   using the arrow.

3. Configure your controls.

4. Find an online game or create your own local sever and play - have fun!
