Hunt Mode

Hunt mode is a shipped mode that uses the elimination template to pit (usually) the natives of a planet against another side. The shipped maps Endor, Hoth, Kashyyyk, Naboo, and Tatooine each have a hunt mode.

Adding Hunt Mode

The following steps show how to add a hunt mode to a player created map. ABC represents the three letter name for the map, and g will be used for the era, though of course c can replace it. For ease, the Hoth hunt script will be modified instead of creating a whole new script.

1: Copy the hot1g_hunt.lua from …\BF2_ModTools\assets\scripts\HOT into …\BF2_ModTools\data_ABC\Common\scripts\ABC

2: Open it and change this line:

ReadDataFile("HOT\\hot1.lvl", "hoth_hunt")

to this
ReadDataFile("dc:ABC\\ABC.lvl", "ABC_hunt")

3: Navigate to …\BF2_ModTools\data_ABC\Common\mission

4: Make then open a new text file called ABCg_hunt.req

5: Add the following lines to the file:


6: Navigate to …\BF2_ModTools\data_ABC\Common

7: Open mission.req and add this line:


(With the quotes)
Next to the other lines that look like this:

8: Navigate to …\BF2_ModTools\data_ABC\addme

9: Open the addme.lua and add

mode_hunt_g = 1

right after
mapluafile = "ABC%s_%s", era_g = 1, era_c = 1

10: Go to the AddDownloadableContent section and a new line:

11: Open up your map in Zeroeditor

12: Click on Active layer Change button

13: Create a new layer and rename it "hunt"

14: Click on game modes configure

15: Remove it from common layers

16: Type in hunt into the mode name box and then click add

17: Click on the add button in Layers Used and add the hunt layer

18: Click on update REQs and MRQs and navigate to your ABC.req

19: Add your command posts and layer specific objects

20: Save and Munge, then play away!

This method holds true for all gamemodes so just replace "hunt" with another gamemode name and you're all set.
