I force team colors to team mates with settings set to zero for RGB (they appear grey in color that way and don't distract) and, depending on map color, I use mostly forced enemy color of bright green (green slider all the way up, others all the way down) or for brighter maps, I use bright pink (R and B slider all the way up and G all the way down). For my own character, I use the Female Assasin character, so unless somebody else has forced models, my hitbox is a tiny bit smaller but still helps.

    Thanks Foo. I sure wasn't aware of this. So I can force the other teams characters to 'Hulk' if he existed and our team to 'mini-me's'. Cool. I'd almost bet the collision for each is the same. I'm cornfused now. I'll draft a post at Epic and see if I can get the real skinny. Thx.

    Sorry for the confusion. Seems like I was about right the first time. The Epic forum has changed a lot. There's almost zero support for UT04. Most threads were years old. We're a dying breed it seems. Again, character modelers have a lot of parameter flexibility. This is just a general idea.

    BTW-Sorry for hijacking your thread Des.

    Heres an image that simulates a cylindrical collision mesh that interacts with the surrounding geometry.




    This image shows a player model with the 'Hit' collision capsules attached to each part of the body, arms legs, torso, and head, etc. Notice the head has a different color mesh and this is how the engine determines a headshot.

    Des, yeah...just hit f7 or at the console, type in menu3spn and it will open...but should be bound to f7...you can disable the sound of your own footsteps as well, which I encourage everyone to do...it makes it that much better for hearing other players movements, esp in areas with foot step sounds augmented or heightened like metal walkways or, water areas with splashing..
