    Hiah TF2Maps.net... I'm looking for some bored mappers. You might have heard of a plugin called "Medieval Fortress". This is a plugin that restricts weapon use to only "medieval" weapons. Its currently being updated to include demoman and soldier. What it needs, are a few more maps than redfort to play on. I'm looking for mappers that are interesting in creating medieval type enviroments and can take the gameplay elements into consideration. The plugin is currently playable on Ubercharged.net servers, but DPErny would be happy to give the code to some other servers. Anyone interested?

    I am at a loss for how that is playable o_O Isn't it just snipers vs demomen since everyone else would be limited to melee (if that?)? and before demoman got his new stuff how could it have worked.

    Yeah, do you have a more elaborate description? Like what weapons exactly are allowed and which aren't?

    Sorry, I typed this up in a rush. I'll type in the current version and the 2nd version:

    Pyro- Flairgun/Axe
    Heavy- Sandvich/Fists
    Medic-Saw/Medigun (CHOP THAT WOOOOD!)
    Sniper- Huntsman Jarate Kukri and Razor back (for the heck of it :p)

    New Version:
    Pyro-Maybe
    Heavy-Maybe
    Medic-Same
    Sniper- Same
    Solly- Flag, pickaxe and shovel
    Demo- Sword and Shield.
    Hopes this clears things up a bit.

    Alright, hi TF2Maps.net. I am DPErny, and I made the forementioned plugin.

    The plugin, in its original version, restricted the classes to Bow/Jarate Sniper, Fist/Sandvich Heavy, Healgun/Bonesaw Medic, and Flaregun/Fireaxe Pyro. The plugin was poorly made, worked poorly, but it was fun. We played it primarily on Redfort. It fell from disuse a few weeks later. I left it alone. It lacked variety that TF2 players wanted, and wasn't really true to medieval times.


    But the recent updates have created renewed interest in Medieval Fortress, however, so I am rebuilding the plugin from the ground up. It will be neater and cleaner. The plugin will ship with four classes: Sniper, Heavy, Demo, and Soldier.

    The Sniper is the ranger class. He is not allowed his SMG or Rifle. He is the only class with long range capabilities. The Heavy functions as the plugin's Tank. He's big and slow. His ability to drop Sandviches also makes him a good healer. The plugin will allow Sandviches to recharge more quickly. The Soldier is a powerful close-range melee class, and also has access to the Buff Banner, making him a powerful team player. The Demo is by far the central warrior class. His Eyelander and Targe make him a staple of Medieval Fortress.


    I feel that the plugin is ready to move BEYOND Redfort and into it's own specialized maps. If you are a bored mapper and think this is an interesting project, contact me through the provided email or through the ubercharged.net forums and I can give you more specifics.

    cp_smbcastle2 would be perfect!

    Someone from axls server suggested this also, if I may ask would this be a private or public plugin?

    I think using cp_smbcastle would be great. I'll suggest it to server admins.

    This will be released for ubercharged.net servers only for a week or two to rebuild a bit of lost popularity on those, but it will be released publicly soon after, both source and plugin. I'll post here when it does go public, so I hope there's no rule on necros.


    EDIT: The previous version of the plugin is available to any and all servers. Simply download from here: http://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?p=860374

    Please note that this version is pretty much unsupported. If it sucks, oh well. I'm making a new one.

    I had been making a map called mf_2castle for this, but it died. I now see that the name is already taken. Oh well.. I'll be making my own map for this, but I'm not the greatest. PM me if you want to help ^_^
