BOMBING RUN 1.5b FOR UNREAL TOURNAMENT 3

=============================================================

RELEASE DATE: 4/24/2008

WEBSITE: http://relicsut.com

FORUM: http://relic74.proboards98.com/index.cgi

DEVELOPERS: warhead@relicsut.com [Programming]
relic@relicsut.com [Map Design]
Voi@Y [Beta Testing - Server/Client Testing]

Special thanks to X3]ZzdGi, Voi@y, {AW}Stretchinya, Bombingrun.org,
BayKt, f14help, cobraxp, and everyone else who helped test this mod...

=============================================================

INSTALLATION:

NOTE: EPIC'S UT3 PATCH 1.2 RETAIL IS REQUIRED FOR MOD TO WORK CORRECTLY!

CAREFULLY copy the files to their respective folders. The file structure in UT3 can be quite confusing so
double check where you are copying these files else the mod will not work correctly!!!

If some folders do not exist, create them. Here's the file structure. If you previously installed an
earlier version of this mod, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you remove the old/duplicate files. The files
are to be copied as follows...


UTBombingRun.ini > My DocumentsMy GamesUnreal Tournament 3UTGameConfig

BombingRun.u > Program FilesUnreal Tournament 3UTGameCookedPC

BombingRunGraphics.upk > Program FilesUnreal Tournament 3UTGameCookedPC

BR-HeroesOfAnubis-Final.ini > My DocumentsMy GamesUnreal Tournament 3UTGamePublishedCookedPCCustomMaps

BR-HeroesOfAnubis-Final.ut3 > My DocumentsMy GamesUnreal Tournament 3UTGamePublishedCookedPCCustomMaps



==============================================================

MAPPERS:

ONE VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:

DO NOT publish your bombing run maps. Doing so cooks the bombingrun.u file into the map, making
future upgrades to the mod impossible. After building your maps, simply copy them to the published
folder. We cannot express this precaution enough, and it must be followed.

After building your map, you may notice that the ballgoals have dropped from their original positions.
This is due to the editor's tendancy to snap navpoint objects to the floor. To fix this, use the
NavigationCylinderComponent property of the new bombingrun actors.

Changelog for BombingRun Beta 1.5b:

====================================

Changes for BombingRun Beta 1.5
Also includes 1.43 changelog. 1.43 was not a full release, just an emergency patch so not all things were implemented yet.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Ini settings file location has changed. You will need to update the new place with your
settings. See below for more details.


All Ini settings have been moved to UTBombingRun.ini.
It turns out epic does not support specifying an ini file on the server command line any more
so it makes more sense to have these settings in our own file, especially in light of the
fact that we can have map settings sections now.

See [Bombing Run Settings UTBRSettings] section.
>>>>>Any settings in UTGame.ini are no longer used. You will need to reenter your settings.<<<<<
>>>>>Run the game once to have the default settings automatically setup for you.

Added Mutator ini setting! Any mutators in this setting will be automatically loaded.
For example Mutators=UTGame.UTMutator_Instagib,UTGame.UTMutator_LowGrav
will loaded instagib low grav in the game.
This also works for map settings, so you can have different mutators for each map on a single server.

You can now have custom settings for each map on one server!
For example, put this in UTBombingRun.ini and this map and only this map will run Low Grav Quad Jump.
[BR-Voidy-TempleBurner UTBRSettings]
MaxMultiJump=3
Mutators=UTGame.UTMutator_LowGrav

Added game settings to the UTBRBallBase actor so that a mapper can setup the map with the game settings they want.
In actor properties in map editor drill down to UTBRBallBase > Settings > UTBRSettings

Added DisableGoalShootingScore ini setting to stop goals by shooting ball. Useful for maps where goals are in open and it's too easy to score by shooting

Added new ini vars for custom feel of game. Default will be UT2003 feel.
Use WorldGravityZ, MultiJumpBoost, MaxMultiJump, AllowDodgeJumping to customize feel.
Use StandardUTFeel to get standard UT3 feel regardless of above settings.
Use GameSpeedMultiplier to adjust game speed.



Fixed issue when player was standing on ball base when ball was returned, they would not pick up ball

Stopped ball glow from showing up at ball base at end of round

Pass lock was not being released when feigning death

When successfully passing to a pass locked teammate, you would still hear the pass lock lost sound

BRVersion console command was not working in net play

Version console message was not showing up in net play when player logged in

Fixed net play problem where sometimes you would see ball carrier's rings sitting by themselves rather than on carrier

Fixed problem where ball carrier bots could still use weapons in net play. Humans could do this also by pounding on a numeric key when picking up ball.

In rare cases, the ball would not get positioned at the ball base when returned to ball base.

The AllowBallCarrierWeapons setting was not getting set properly in net play

Stopped ball running bot from shopping for pickups when it is getting near enemy base

In low grav ball was floating up a bit when shooting, making it hard to score by shooting

Fixed issue where certain kinds of goal visuals were blocking a bot's vision so they could not find goal for shooting a score

Fixed 3d tracing problems which made bots sometimes try to shoot a score when the shot was obvisouly impossible because something was in the way.

Added bot support for super high goals. Bots will use combinations of jumping and shooting to score on a goal which is high in the air.

Fixed bot navigation problems for high goals. For goals high in the air, map pathing is broken and would make bot break down and just stand still. The issue was in the ut3 engine. Had to adjust jump variables to get pathing in general to work, and then
employ a backup scheme if that didn't work, wherein the bot will just go to a random place on the floor near the goal.

Bots will now take advantage of quad jump and low gravity.

Bots will now pursue ball or ball carrier in the air. Will shoot at runner while in the air.

Made bot defense better. Defending bots were not always taking a good position near the home base but instead wandering.

For high goals, attacking bots will attempt to jump and intercept ball for the score

Bots will boost now as a means of getting to ball or when running with ball

Bots will now use forward passing more and not be ball hogs

In instagib bots will shoot ball more

Fixed issue where bots would just go to the ball base and stand there instead of pursuing ball.

Fixed issue where bot would wait for an enemy to come into view before it would try to score.

Made rings on ball bigger

Changes to ball physics to be more like UT2003. Used in conjunction with UT2003 feel ini settings,
which include adjustments to world gravity.

Made collision radius on ball bigger so that you can boost the ball by hitting the rings

Fixed last second save message, was not displaying when you killed runner near your base, but rather when near his base.

Enabled Warmup round in instant action

Fixed issue where sometimes warmup round wouldn't start

Fixed warmup round issue where at end of warmup round the ball does not get sent back to ball base.

Fixed warmup round issue where if player is standing on base at round end, they pickup ball.

Fixed issue where you could boost a ball which was sitting still into goal for score.

Fixed issue where you could kill an opponent near his goal and the ball would hit his goal and score for him.

Fixed issue where if you died trying to score and dropped ball hit goal it would score.

Now deleting all translocators beacons at start of new round

Fixed issue where game would crash if playing with 5 or more bots

Fixed problem where chat would not work after a while in net play

Added red and blue team ball glow

Added a little more ambient glow to ball because in dark places the ball surface looked too dark

Adjusted ball point lighting to be more even all the way around ball

Fixed issue where bot would just stand at ball and not pick it up

Fixed problem where someone feigning death would not respawn at start of new round

Made bot get off hoverboard when very near enemy base

Fixed problem where sometimes bot wanted to shoot a score but wouldn't because body was not lined up towards goal properly

Ball carrier rings were staying visible in the spot carrier died if they changed teams

Ball launcher has a visible gun model now

Fixed issue where in net play with lots of bots the ball would become disabled

Changed icons on minimap to better looking icons.

Minimaps now use Epic's Full Detail feature. This makes players and vehicles to show up on minimap.

Made ball to bounce off vehicles

Fixed problem where ball could not be passed to a pass locked teammate in certain areas.
For example, base areas in HerosOfAnubis and MatrixLobby in general had this problem.

New enhanced spectator mode! Camera is now freely positionable by spectator and will follow the spectated player's
path and rotation.

Now displaying objective name of objectives when spectating

Spectator mode now can view players by clicking mouse

Bots will now boost ball to score and defend

Added PlayMovie console command. Available when you have the ball.
Can pass a movie name or number 1-8 for the campaign movies, for example, PlayMovie 1 for the intro movie.

Bots will now cover the general area of the objective, not just the objective.
This means defenders/attackers can cover courtyards and not just goal rooms,
bots holding a position will hold the general area (Hold This Position bots would crowd together in one place), etc.
Covering bots would run back and forth between two points and if they tried to get a super pickup would
not get it and then stop covering you and roam. Now they'll cover a wider area using a wide variety
if covering spots and stay covering you.

Bots will not only cover wide area but also make use of UTDefensePoints. They will prefer them but not always
use them. In regular ut game bots exclusive use of defense points made them easy predictable targets.

Defending and attacking bots were jumping into goals and dying.

Bots had tendancy to run back and forth between two points when covering an objective.

Bots will camp an appropriate amount of time instead of running around so much.

Bots will no longer attempt to defend from high places, not so good to defend from
a place where they tend to get stuck in and can't easily move out to chase the runner down.

Attacker bots will form front line with ball runner and move in with runner as runner gets nearer goal.

Attacker bots will understand if ball is under team's control and attack base instead of getting ball.

Allow player to call over ball runner bot using the Hold This Position or Cover Me commands.

Streamlined ai so that core ai always gets evaluated. This allows bots to be smarter about
getting weapons, vehicles and pickups as they are going to objective. This is the only UT game
type that does this. Even standard games are faulty in this area.

Bots will now take a path which puts them between base and ball, so they are attacking along a defensive line.

Fixed so that defending bots will now use all appropriate vehicles.
They wouldn't use certain vehicles. For example, in Heros defending bots would not use the Scavengers.

Fixed bug where bot would just stand there trying to reach a vehicle. The case the for scavenger in Heros,
because it's in a place which is only reachable with excellent jumping skills (way beyond a bot's lol).

Fixed bug where if you were in a vehicle bot would come up to you and hump your leg begging you to get out.

Bots will now reset the ball and also lob it far away when it's near home goal.
