  • Main features across my Invasion Mods

    My campaign-themed invasion mods have scale (resizeable forge objects), destructible objectives, and a bunch of other things (some optional, some hardwired). Enriched Invasion is the most generic one. This is a non-exhaustive list of the main features of my main invasion mods.

    This doesn't cover not standard mods like Riot! and Winter Contingency or Guardian Oracle.

    Elite ranks & colours change to look like campaign elites, based on loadout gear.
    Improved inv_vehicle label functionality (for spawning objects in later phases)
    Hardwired weapon rebalances:
    Spiker: 1.5x damage
    Plasma Repeater: 1.2x damage
    Gausshog: 0.25x damage
    AA Shade: 0.5x damage​

    Optional features (all gametype strains unless stated absent in above posts)
    • Shade traits (default/recommended: 4x damage, 2x pilot hp)
    • Scale3
    • Destructible objectives (aka generator defense) 1
    • Team specific traits
    • Team specific weapons & vehicles (highly tuneable)
    • Brute/berserker class
    • Grunt class
    • Permanent custom powerup, which can change weapon
    • AA shades2
    • Warthog turret emplacements
    • Fire particles (3 types, phase specific, optionally harmful)
    • Portable Covenant shields
    • Shielded wraiths or ghosts
    • ODST drop pods
    • 'Brown team scripting': Switch objects; phase-specific and timed/delayed object despawning; scriptable explosions.
    • Shadow casting4
    Optional Features (select gametype strains only)
    • Player-controlled custom turret (missile cannon6
    • phantom, or scarab)
    • AI-controlled custom turret ('scarab jet')5
    • Expanded 'Brown team scripting': more scriptable explosions; scripted music cues or generator sound; mid-phase timed despawning kill/safe zones & respawn zones.
    • Floating/zero-gravity corpses
    • Holsterable machine guns
    • Moveable machine gun turrets
    • Respawn zone vehicles
    • Civilian (no turret) vehicles 4
    • Randomly chosen elite power class on custom powerup pickup

    One gametype, multiple maps
    • There are a few features to make it easy to use one gametype variant for more than one map (very useful when hosting CGB lobbies).
    • Objective type for each phase is automatically detected from each map.
    • Time limit for each phase can be extended or shortened from markers placed on a map.
    • Gametype strains with "unlimited Switchable Scale (u-Sx)" can be used on both 33x and 71x scale maps, is an object with label "create" and spawn seq 71 is on the 71x map.
