Hi,

Is it planned to adapt the "Catch the chicken" version?
It is quite fun.

Regards

Sorry for asking what apparently is an obvious question, but...
what is that? A mod? Someone plays chicken and all others need to catch/blast/pummel him/her/it?

A game type where you must hold the chicken as long as possible (in your hands) while defending it from everyone attacking you. Chicken holders get big points. Also it's a chicken because it's hilarous. It's a Free For All with a Chicken. You can not kill the chicken.

I agree, we need a catch the chicken, with simple, exclusive centralized arenas to battle in. Most of the current levels wouldn't work well for this game mode. It could probably be easily coded (but i'm not coding it so i don't know sago's difficulty)

I can model the chicken.

sounds like 1 flag ctf cept without the bases or the "smear the queer" american football game i used to play in school. definitely could be fun, but would require maps that dont have any hidden rooms for people to camp in like fromhell said. i think world of padman has a similar gametype, but i havent played it in so long i dont really remember o.O

i'd like to contribute in implementing the "chicken mode"
why don't we create a sort of ctf mixed with chicken, where there's a free running chicken and a team must capture more chickens than the other? could be great... maybe with some new wide maps! and new weapons like harpoons or forks (or spoon Tongue)

That's coded in missionpack as 'harvester'. It wouldn't play like Catch the Chicken.

maybe a monkey that jumps on walls and ceilings and stuff, that way you would have to be kinda imaginative with rocket jumps and stuff to catch it.

but pigs are fat and they smell and they pee on you

Thats it! Smiley An imaginative suggestion too! Only thing I would add is instead of quad, the monkey can collect a unicycle and go 3 times faster. The unicycle has a squeeky wheel so you hear it running about mad. And has a little bell... and..  bah I'm getting my hopes up, it never gonna happen..  remembering big boobies with curves is the important thing these days Sad

ya, if its not big boobies its the inhumane "spanking" of monkeys these days :p
that would be neat, especially if you can shoot the unicycle out from under him and he goes crazy XD

Catch the chicken was quiet a short time fun mod for Q3 I played occasionally years ago on LAN. The longer you hold the chicken the more points you get and everybody is chasing you. If you have the chicken in your hands you're not able to shoot ('cept throw the chicken away) but run.

Important (that's why it has to be a chicken): Chicken does clucking noises and looses feathers so other players are able to track the chicken (and the player holding it) easily. It's even more fun in team deathmatch because players of one team can pass the chicken to each other.

Think of UT2k3 Bombing Run gametype without goals.

"EDIT"
Catch the chicken for Q3 is working with OA as well.
Get it from http://q3ctc.planetquake.gamespy.com/, unzip, put it in your OA folder and give it a try. If there are enough interested players I might set up an European Server running OA with Catch the chicken mod.
