Operation: DRETCH

Post by cu-kai »

Hello everyone,

I present:

Operation: DRETCH!

A modern take on the classic Dretchstorm, you must fight your way to the Overmind and destroy all the alien spawns, of course while making sure the alien horde does not destroy your own base.

Recommended: 3-8 players. More than that and it might be too easy.

Remember to activate the base defences at the start of the game (red button outside the base)!

I recommend you use the following mapconfig if you plan on hosting on your servers:

Code: Select all

bot del all
bot fill 16 a 9
lock a
time 120
g_BPRecoveryInitialRate 20
g_BPRecoveryRateHalfLife 120

This will give you 16x top skill alien bots, lock the alien team and set the timelimit to 120.

It will also increase BP recovery for the game. Make sure you have a default.cfg for your preferred values on other maps.

If you want a challenge, try this one:

Code: Select all

bot del all
bot add * aliens 9
bot add * aliens 9
bot add * aliens 9
bot add * aliens 9
bot add * aliens 9
bot add * aliens 9
bot add * aliens 9 reckless
bot add * aliens 9 reckless
bot add * aliens 9 reckless
bot add * aliens 9 reckless
bot add * aliens 9 reckless
bot add * aliens 9 reckless
bot add * aliens 9 reckless
bot add * aliens 9 reckless
bot add * aliens 9 reckless
bot add * aliens 9 reckless
lock a
time 120
g_BPRecoveryInitialRate 20
g_BPRecoveryRateHalfLife 120

This will add some reckless SK9 bots which always rush you.

What does the reckless command do on a bot?

Btw, operation_dretch and mantis maps are now the official maps of the server. I don't ever remember what playing against non-bots aliens was like.
