Hairy: I love Bulge CQ and CTF and would be enthusiastic about any mods of these phenomenal maps. Visiting that area in Belgium was also quite moving.

Re: DC Urban Siege possible changes

I had thought putting it in the center of the "temple" was a cool novelty, but am open minded to change it. Note it's way more work to move the red flag, as it means essentially coding up a new main base which takes a lot of time/work. For now, moving the red pickup trucks further away fro...

Hi toolman. would be terrific to see you back on the server. installing has never been easier. i like HairyRussianDude's method here: http://ea117dcfanfavorites.com/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=6302 if you use win10, you'll also need to enable DirectPlay http://ea117dcfanfavorites.com/viewtopic.php?f=62...

DC Urban Siege possible changes

Hi all, I'm humbled by your response to the brand new DC Urban Siege CTF mod. Thank you for your open-mindedness. So far, the numbers reflect its success. The first night we ran it, got to 21 ppl. Last Friday night, we started gaming at 11:20PM ET, when the server usually quiets down for the night. ...

Re: Jolly Mods

Bang -- thx: Spawn in wall is fixed.

Otto -- thx: exploding barriers are fixed.

All: ignore the grey flag icon when approaching the enemy flag. I'll figure out how to get rid of it some time. Until then, just ignore.

Re: Modding Tips

Yeah that one, I did that for my Urban CTF mod but the only thing that shows up is a little gray dot on the minimap? Like the kind of gray dot that shows up where there's supposed to be a gun emplacement? do you have any sample code of placing an LCVP and it working?
