Colony is a twist on the original "capture the flag" concept.
Two teams fight over the possession of 6 "canisters". Each
canister can be picked up by either team. Once a canister is
obtained from the "neutral" reactor it must be returned to your
teams base. Once a canister is captured, your team receives the
effects of that canister every 30 seconds (effects described
below). The canister does not return to any set point but instead
resides in your base were you must defend it from the enemy. At
any point the enemy may steal your canister and take it to their
base to receive the canisters effects. The first canister becomes
available 4 minutes into the start of the level. The remaining
canisters become available every 5 minutes thereafter.
Once you have all 6 canisters in your possession a door near
your teams map will open, revealing an exit that will end the
level. Upon exiting your teams score will increase by 50 points
for winning the level. Thus if you were behind all game but
managed to steal away all 6 canisters you may still win. :)
Once you pick up a flag you may throw the flag to a team mate
by typing "dropitems". (you should bind a key to this command).
It is even possible to "pass" a key to a team member as they run by.
The Engineer: He is the only member of the team that has access
to any portion of the map. By hitting the control panels with
his spanner he can open the enemies doors.
Demoman: Can use a detpack to open a water entrance into the
enemies research lab. The entrance is designated by red man
hole covers in the courtyard between bases.
Raistlin for help with my entities, Team fortress guys
for adding in some cool things I begged for. Most of
All to <--Arrow-< for his models and textures and Talon for
his textures. Thanks to these beta testers:
And of course the TFS guys :)
PLEASE go to mayhem.ida.net/colony.htm for a cool and complete description
THESE BUGS ARE EITHER BUILT INTO THE QUAKE ENGINE OR ARE IN THE TEAM
1. When you bring a flag back to your base and step on a pad the key
is supposed to appear on a pedestal near there. It does finally
appear when a) the score timer goes off and causes it to appear
b) you or a member of your team dies and suddenly it appears when
he respawns (not when he dies). Also, neither of these necessarily
have to happen, it can be any combination of these. I have a tiny
miniture version of this scoring system and it works every time.
But not in my large level.
2. This one really gets me... when you start the level and both
teams run to get the keys, neither team can pick them up until someone
dies. The don't have to be a certain class, nor do they have to be
carrying anything. the second any one dies any place in the level
the keys are able to be picked up. very very weird. the only thing
i can guess is that it's something in my goal activiation.
