This is clearly the greatest thing to ever hit Jedi Academy. No, I am not kidding. It undeniably enhances the game experience, as everyone not on your team is a target as they should be.

I'm half with honorz players, and half on the other side. I think if a player is chatting, he shouldn't be killed, especially if he's dueling some guy and he's winning already. It makes the killer look so n00bish. It's just like in a game of soccer, if a player gets injured and there's no referee to stop the game from going on, then it'd be unfair to the other team. What, should they just score a goal like that then?

I think if an admin doesn't want honorz players, then he/she would specify it already. No point in having "remove chat icon" made compulsory to players

Its definitely a handly tool to have, but knowing Razor, I'm pretty sure he'll think this is too much of a personal perference feature to have as a permanent part of the game.

One problem with your analogy UDM is that a lot of the time the game happens to have the objective of killing the enemy. A better analogy would be paintball games.

If the guy is standing in the corner talking into some headset, and he's an enemy you're supposed to shoot, do you shoot him?

Answer: YES, that's one less impediment to fufilling your victory condition.

...Besides, chatting is not an injury. A player distinctly chooses to stand around and chat, thus leaving himself open. In a soccer game an injured player is simply taken out of the game if the injury is serious enough. The equivalent for this game is SPECTATOR MODE, which takes you completely out of the game, not chatting, which does not do this. The equivalent to chatting in a soccer game is stopping in the middle of the field and talking. The game shouldn't just stop if a player decides to sit around and talk.

Regardless, this was intended as a joke thread anyhow... heh.

What was the mod supposed to do? PCgamemods is down.

As for chatting, ingame chatting is different than real life chating. Ingame, you can't move!

It removed the chat icon. A brilliant mod indeed.

Note Razor that I actually agreed with you there with my 'equivalent' statement.

this can be done even easier with a client cvar instead of hacking the image.
