Hi guys,

slowly I'm getting back to OA. While I was cleaning up my OA folder recently, I recalled that few months ago oaN clan had been running Cheers server. It was special because  it worked on the basis of mod created by BillGates - oanage mod.

Now, as I see, Cheers is no more, so I asked BiilGates on oaN forum to make it downloadable via their site. And he made it!

This is a little suggestion for you, Instant Owners. Maybe it'd be a good idea to enable oanage mod on your server?

First of all - it doesn't change vanilla physics at all. What you can do with this mod:
- you can enable railjumping (both in insta and aw)
- you can set parameters of rj (knock back, reload time, distance from solid)

AW features: you can change the length of LG bolt, and its damage at closest and furthest range.
you can change speed of the rockets.

Server-wise features: you can shuffle teams and rcon.

That's all! It is a very small file (about 0,4 mb). All its features are optional, but they can vary the gameplay and give an additional fun factor Smiley I think mainly about railjumping. No rjs is imo a big lack of OA (though I understand the conservative Leilol's attitude about not changing weapon parameters, but in this case - it's optional).
I know also that there are no railjumps in the league of clans you're gonna play... But, c'mon! railjumping is so cool! Smiley

I don't know why this mod wasn't popularized. It's the first mod providing rj designed strictly for OA and is really elegant. ok, there are: xbattle, cpma, IUBeta, but these are mods designed for Q3 and they change physics, are unstable or overloaded with features.

oanage is small, simple and doesn't change OA core at all. 

Consider this please Smiley
When 0.8.5 is released we will have new fatures and maps (and colored crosshairs back Smiley ), in 0.9 they should replace all textures. With those things done and features provided by oanage mod OA will be flawless (oh, no! accuracy statistics will still be required!;) )

you can download oanage mod in the first post of this topic:
http://www.team-oan.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=155
but you have to login first (but Luc is registered there, I see). I can't attach it here, cause the max size allowed is 204kb (this mod is small, but no that small).
I can send it to you via e-mail if u wish.

best regards IO!

advantages
+railjump is just awesome, no doubt
+more visitors, only evilinstarj has something similar but we're doing it without the rocket
+we could maybe have some rocketjump matches

disadvantages
-no normal clanmatches at our server
-no server to train normal on

though now im thinking about it, I remember something:

All its features are optional, but they can vary the gameplay and give an additional fun factor
If we just put a few config files in the server, we can execute any we like. So we have for example the server.cfg which uses the mod (that's started by default), normal.cfg which is just normal insta ctf (with gaunt ofc ^^), normaldm.cfg (should be obvious), and moddm.cfg.

That would be awesome actually!

Hum... one thing there was on one evil server ( it's not anymore Sad ) was rctf, with railjump and special flags Cheesy, you know, you must get the flag back by your own Smiley, i really like this gametype and if you can add this one to any server, i would really enjoy Cheesy Wink

hm carrying ur own flag back isnt fun in 2v2, but more players could be fun (never were more than 4/5 players on that mod so dont know Tongue)

But I'll work the plan out on my server and then submit all to funatic and post some here howto set the different modes Smiley


edit: how about actually 'renting' the servers to other clans? Just for free I mean, but when the oac servers are gone many clans won't have a place to train. Only one problem: how do we change pwd back (either rconpwd or privatepass) if someone changed it but didnt change back. We always would have to ask funatic to reset it.
Obama got a neat tool but that prolly doesnt work when the rconpwd is changed.

Renting the server? Huh?
Well, if you want but i don't think many clans will be interested Huh?

Anyway, rctf can be really fun and you need a good teamplay in this mod Wink

How often do you see clans (H4L and FK-QT for example yesterday all evening) on the oac servers? I mean many don't have a server and could use one for training or matches (or maybe recruiting as ampii was yesterday with h4l).
But we can concider that later. Let's first make the mod ^^

I think it's important to support community members' effort.
It's one of the ways to keep OA alive.
