Loki's Minions Capture the Flag was the
first CTF mod ever released for Quake2. The first version, created by
Jormungard of Clan Loki's Minions, came out the day after the Q2
source-code was released. In the months that followed, various artists
and programmers joined the team to work on what would eventually become
version 3.0 - a CTF mod with a ton of features and custom maps. LMCTF
was highly successful. For a while, it was even more popular than id's
own Q2CTF. The next few years would bring new team members, 2 new
versions (4.0 & 5.0), plus thousands of people playing LMCTF on
hundreds of servers.
Offhand Grappling Hook
offhanded hook allows you to grapple while keeping another weapon in
your hand. Fly through the air, collecting frags the whole time. It's
fun as hell.
A new weapon that has 2 types of fire: spread and bounce plasma. The plasma Rifle uses cells as ammo.
Advanced Team-Radio and Voice sounds
the push of a button you can send important messages to you team mates
or yell something at a passer by. Radio and Voice sounds can be very
useful for coordinating your team actions. LMCTF also supports 3rd
party voice sounds of which there are several.
Flag Model & Animated Artifacts
the only CTF mod to have our own flag and the first to use animated
runes, errrr, artifacts (Strength, Shield, Haste, & Regen). LMCTF
also sports it's own offhand grappling hook model with new sounds.
Improved Autotext & Position Info
keystroke tells you (or your team) the location of your flag carrier or
name the player in front of you. We have written precise position
descriptions for our 30 maps .
The LM Compass
Allows players to use the compass to automatically point to enemy flag.
The LMCTF Maps
LMCTF offers 49 original maps plus support for Q2 single player, Q2 DM, Q2CTF and all 3rd party CTF maps.
3 Sets of Capture Sounds
Servers can choose 3 distinct sets of capture sounds: Wolf/Lion, Cops/Robbers, Demons.
30 Custom Skins
LMCTF offers 3 skinsets to choose from making for a total of 30 different skins.
Clan Models and Skins
is the only game that dynamically downloads and selects player models,
skins & sounds, adding new depth to CTF and DM. This means Clan
Predator may play Clan Alien and it will look and sound like aliens and
predators brawling. Add-ons can be mixed on the fly.
is an advanced feature, which should prove extremely useful for clan
matches. It allows team mates to identify themselves as offense,
defense or roaming. Teammates can assess the readiness of their team by
looking at an easy to read display.
Players have the choice of free roaming or chace-cam observer modes. You can also observe all or choose to observe only 1 team.
Four Observer Camera Modes
have a smooth-action chase camera that glides behind a person like a
movie shot would; an over-the- shoulder-cam, a free-floating-cam and
the butt-cam; it shows what yer arse sees! It's a riot to watch
defenders chasing a flag thief.
Tournament Mode for CTF, DM and Team DM
has an easy to use Tournament Mode for Clan Matches. Referees are
temporary rcons who can set matches, kick players, assign teams, freeze
games, & can also play. Voice & text countdowns mark the
pre/post match periods, allowing all to retrieve stats.
Menu Interface for Referee & Sysop
menus eliminate the need for server commands. Type your p-word &
all server controls are set w/menus. We support player banning too! :-)
Full Rcon support
LM is the only mod that allows you to reopen a closed server while off-site, in addition to gui menus rcon control.
Practice Mode with new skins
skins don't affect actual armor but they show just who's on O & D.
Practice mode lets referee calm the excitable players by freezing the
game. Clans may practice with one flag in order to concentrate their
strategies on a single base.
Full Gibstats support and MVP
give ya stats till you puke! An MVP for offense and defense; see how
everyone else is doing and against whom, clients may retrieve stats as
easily as rcon or referee.
Scores memory, ping alert, handicaps
Winning team players switch without losing points, "the disconnected"
may rejoin on same side with their score! The ping alert monitors
matches for unfair pings. A scoring handicap also helps outnumbered
LMCTF offers it's own weapons balance for servers who wish to use it.
We've included a utility that will extract stats from any Q2 demo file.
