"Catch The Crate" a new Lua mod for W4

Post by WormsS on Sun Oct 11, 2015 8:41 pm

Hi guys Smile

Yeah I know, It's almost deserted around here, but anyway, I still wanted to post the mod I just created. It's lua-powered, because lua files (all the files in data\scripts) are really useful to create mods, and offer way more possibilities than basic modifications in XML files.

Here is the description of the mod:
"You start the game without any weapon. To get some, you have to collect crates. A crate spawns every two turns (turn 1, 3 and so on), and every time you pick up one. That means the total number of crates on the map is always getting bigger. The problem is what the crate contains is totally random. It could be a weapon, a strategic utility, a health bonus, or a disadvantage like a global poisoning of your team, or direct damages. Collecting a crate is at your own risk, but you have to do so in order to win the game."


You have 35s of turn time, so don't waste your time standing still. Try to collect the nearest crate from yourself and get started.


Here is a more detailed version (contains spoilers):
The crates may contain:

Contents:
Weapons:
Bazooka, Classic grenade, Holy grenade, Shotgun, Old woman, Baseball Bat

Strategic weapons:
The Nailer: the classic hammer. It nails worms in the ground and prevent them from moving and picking up crates. It could be very strategic, and waste an enemy turn if no ally comes to help.
The UnNailer: Name says it all, its utility is to un-nail allied worms in a harmless way.
The Crates Picker: Very useful ; when used, you basically collect every single crate on the map. Very rare though. (Be sure to have game sounds on when used, it's really funny.)

Utility:
Jetpack or Ninja rope

Health:
Randomly 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 or 100HP bonus

Direct damage:
Randomly 10 or 20 direct damage to your worm

Mystery:
Instant teleport in a random place,
Global poisoning of your team, or
Turn time rise

Nothing:
Some crates are totally empty. They are just here to waste your time. Yeah, that's mad.



Oh, I almost forgot: there is NO WAY to recognize what does a specific crate contains: they all look alike, the radar is shut down, and there is no message when a crate spawns. Enjoy Mad

To install the mod, un-zip the contents of the ZIP archive in your Worms 4 directory (...\Codemasters\Worms 4 Mayhem). Saving the files the mod replaces is highly recommended in order to restore the game normally when you want to.

YEAH INTERESTING Very Happy however, the normal deathmatch doesn't work more! need it a new script like me that on my mod I created other .lua files, so you game both normal deathmatch and other script of game.

4 insert the mode, too simple! on file scripts.xml in any section of map, you put file script name.

I already know that technique. However, you don't have the choice of the map when doing that way. I want people to feel free about the map they want to play on.
Thanks for your support, though.
