ChaosEsque Anthology

ChaosEsque Anthology

ChaosEsque Anthology is a first person shooter. It is a standalone modification of Xonotic which includes extended weapons, maps, vehicles, buildable buildings, mounted weapons, spell casting, monsters, player characters, textures, and game modes.

It has over 100 maps. Some are futuristic, some are ancient, and some are medieval. A few evoke platform games such as sonic, others follow a style more akin to diablo. Some are static maps, others are randomly connected.

There is something to fit your mood. There are mutators that can add mounted weapons in any map, buildings, monsters, foliage, hazards, and even balloons and bumpers. You can fight with futuristic weapons, medieval weapons, and /or hand to hand combat (over 150 weapons). There are also many vehicles (and a mutator to spawn them in maps that do not have them, as is tradition (as you can see)).

You can also set each team to start with different specific weapons if you want to test a theory that you could defeat a well equipped military force with your bolt action rifle or crossbow. Same with vehicles and mounted weapons spawning (you can set which spawn near which team in CTF etc). You can drink wine, potions, learn magic, read scrolls, so on and so forth.

The goal, and much of this has been reached, is to not limit the player.

New Weapons

ChaosEsqueAnthology opens up to colonial times and the wild wild west! Now the 1600s and 1800s are represented in the game! New weapons include the flintlock pistol, musket, the 1851 navy revolver, the Pepperbox revolver, the Colt 44 peacemaker, Henry Repeating Lever-Action Rifle. Additionally bugs have been fixed including one where one could not unjam if a jam occured on on the last bullet in a magazine (however some weapons have different ways to clear this more searious "malfunction"; such as switching away from the weapon, while others will clear the malfunction easier)

(Additionally an M16A2 has been added for all those Matrix reenactments one might wish!)

117p - Bugfix, More wepon, More mappa (Volume 2 updated)

version 117p - More Weapons and less wait Edition
A major bugfix has occurred: The seldom used "give you an item on triggering" map function precached' ALL weapons rather than just the specified ones to give. Now this was fine perhaps when there were just 18 weapons, however now there are over 150: to many, in fact, for the precache string to handle all at once (in the engine). Thus if you precache ALL the weapons... you get a sz size overflow and cannot connect to the server. There are just too many models.... Also takes forever.... thus the bug was discovered. It is now fixed. We precache only the weapons that might be given.
---
Additionally 2 weapons have been ported over bringing the weapons total up by 2 amount!
Also Volume2 has been updated to Version 5 adding 3 opensource maps including "Clockwork" by Melanosuchus... which has many gears and now loads just fine!

Enjoy!

v 117m- Flamethrower and Pipes!

version 117m - FlameThrower-and-pipes edition
This new version includes a Flamethrower! Much work was done to ensure proper operation including a binary-tree-search so the flame ends where water or slime begins! Additionally much work has been accomplished to allow a mapper to set what objects/pipes/etc will emit a steam and/or a flame jet when struck by a bullet (see func_wall in netradiant for more information), (somewhat similar to the ICBM level in Call of Duty 5 (COD5) Modern Warfare.) Additionally a mutator can be enabled in the environment section of the mutator menu (create>mutators) where all pipes will emit steam and/or jets of fire (you can also disable this totally even on maps that have it set in map objects). Thus any texture with the name "pipe" within it can erupt flames and steam. Another addition is that misc_fire_crossbowbolt has an added projectile to fire: number 20: flamethrower jet. This is useful for mappers who want to add more traps! Much debugging and annoying error messages were worked out for this release aswell!

Combine the flamethrower with the methane lake mutator for extra fun!

R117k - Tec9 Edition

version 117k - Tec9 edition
Our resident weapon modeler has modeled a Tec-9 for us.
Thus our game now has additional weapons: Tec-9 SMG, Pounder SMG (.50 AE variant with extended magazine).
The weapon makes short work of enemies, and being open bolt: does not overheat.
However it's reliability is not the stuff of legends.
Good for hosing down the opposition.
