This is a mod that I wrote a while ago and has been flying around in some servers.
It makes all spectators (including dead players) into visible (random) colored puff clouds.

Download from here.

You simply add mutator named "Visible spectators X" (or "MutVisibleSpecsX.MutVisSpecs" in URL) and it's ready to go.

You can alter following values from MutVisibleSpecsX.ini (or from in-game settings):
ZapDamage=20 - The zap damage spectators can deal.
SpectatorModel=1 - Model type (0 = clouds, 1 = UFO's).
ZapProjSpeed=1000.000000 - Zap projectile speed.
LaserRefireRate=1.000000 - Zap refire rate as spectator.
ZapTime=1.000000 - How long (in seconds) zeds stay zapped.
bAllowFireLaser=True - Allow spectators fire zap lasers.
bLaserZapEnemy=True - Zap projectiles zaps enemies like ZED gun.
ZapHealDamage=2 - While spectating a player, heal this much hitpoints per fire (0 = disabled).

Version history:
2.0:
- Added support to use tiny UFO models or cloud puffs.
- Added support for firing projectiles while spectating, to do small damage to zeds or heal players (by pressing Use key).
- Optimized network code for the visible spectators to make them move more smoothly.
1.0:
- Initial release.

You can still download first version from here.

What a funny little mutator. If anyone has tested this, can you tell us if this gets on people's nerves or what not? I can see it being a troll mutator.

Good job like usual Marco :)

Seen it on WPC servers. Its not too distracting, fun stuff. Its nice because a spectator can say "last zeds over here" and bob up and down

its like having a way less annoying version of navi with you :p

"Hey listen!"

The only time it gets a bit bad is if you are soloing the end of a wave and you've got 10+ clouds on your head. But is a fun little mutator.
That's what im worried about, my custom server has 12 slots and 4 spectator slots so im wondering if we'll get people annoying others.

Its not that bad because half of the people spectate you, which means they're right above your head, and the other half zoom around doing who knows what, but its not in your face distracting. they're not as twinkley as navi either, more muted.

I thought of this before I even read your post, but you beat me to it.

Just some feedback on this for you Marco. Works brilliantly and is a lot of fun. A lot of my players would rather be clouds then actually playing now lol. The only suggestion by the looks of what everyone agrees with is maybe making the clouds slightly heigher when they're spetating a player cause it goes in their view a little but only slightly.

Great work, 10/10 for imagination and fun factor :)

if theres a server thats running this, could you let me know which one? Im trying to see how this thing looks, but all the servers I play on, dont have this added. If only it was whitelisted though

207.237.69.11:7710 I'm fairly certain it's running on this one... (Fairly heavy download but some awesome mods on there (even if I do say so myself =P ))

sweet!, Im on my way lol. If DL takes that long, then I might go get dinner while its DL. If you see someone named Andrew Ryan that joins, and he is unresponsive, then thats most likely me being AFK while eating dinner. Just kick me :p

wow, I say that server is heavily modded. It ran very smoothly though. I was kinda taken back how my medic went down to level 2 :(

But I love how you guys incorperated lots of custom zeds and stuff. I didnt understand what the three headed bloat was about thoug.

Whitelisted?


So far, no. For the time being, it should atleast be grey-listed, since its not really game breaking. Grant, a sepc could move around and look for high value targets, and then run back and wiggle a bit as a warning, but for the most part, it seems pretty harmless. just makesure they cant block people's scopes

Any chance of this becoming useable with servers that are running KF's Perks, non-mutted Perks, or should I say Whitelisted? :IS2:

Seems really interesting with the fact I can follow the Patriarch around and hope people don't ignore me when I'm the first to die. -_-
