Thursday Game of Rocketfest Death Match

For something a bit different this Thursday, the Newskool Fragfest server has been changed to a "Rocketfest" server.

As per Monkey Harris:-

Rockets are fun so I've added a new "rocketmode" feature in MM, in which the only weapon is the bazooka. All weapon/mod pickups are removed from the map and all ammo is changed to rockets. The reload delay is also removed. Splash damage is reduced to 50% on others and only 10% on yourself to encourage rocket jumping (hopefully get some nice mid-air frags).

Server Details

Server : Newskool Rocketfest
 IP : 37.247.117.19:31513
 Maxclients : 18
 Date : Thursday 1st Sept.
 Time : 21.00 (9pm) UK Time

Missing Rocket Trails

We found something interesting while playing CTF on Sunday. If you have a see through surface in a map (like a window), and two players stand either side of the it, and one player fires a rocket the other player wont see a rocket trail. They will still see the projectile but not the trail. You can see what I mean in the screenshots below.

You can download the Assault files from here.

The files contain many Assault maps, models, server files etc. Just extract them to your Kingpin folder.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Basically the goal in the Assault mod is:-

The idea is for the Runts to infiltrate the Thugs base and steel 3 keys needed to unlock
the Runts radio and call in the reinforcements.

If the Runts return all 3 keys to their radio, the Thugs all get killed by something like
a plane , train, tank, etc.  If the Thugs defend the keys successfully until time runs out,
the Runts all get killed by the plane, train, tank, etc.

You can read more about the mod here.
