Hello again fellow Newerthian Savages.

I've recently decided to create some new prefix gamemodes for the community for whenever they feel like having a short break from the overbearing and hectic Savage experience.
To that end, today I introduce XR Infect Tag (name pending).
Everyone knows what Tag (aka "IT") is from their childhood and school days, and this mode is merely a simple variant.

Everyone joins Team1 (Human) and spawns as a Nomad.
Once the match has started, 10 seconds after a pseudo-randomly chosen player gets to start off on Team2 as a Predator.
The goal of the game is to either survive the time limit on Team1 while Team2 tries to slaughter them all.
When a Predator kills a Nomad, that player is switched to Team2 and is now part of the hunters.

The defenseless Nomads automatically spawn with a specific set of inventory to help run away or survive.
Melee Weapons, Boomerang, Medkit, Imoilizer, Camouflage, and a single Motion Sensor.
Apart from the Boomerang and Motion Sensor, which have limited ammo, the other items cost Mana to use.
Mana automatically replenishes by 1 every second up to a max of 10 - so use your Mana wisely!
NPCs around the map also drop ammo and mana refills.

The Predators spawn with just Rabid, but can pick up new weapons by killing NPCs that are spread around the map.
  • Oschore - grants Blaze
  • Monkit - grants Lightning
  • Bearloth - grants Tempest
  • Mudent - grants Carnivorous Melee
  • Zizard - grants Venomous Melee
  • Gerkat - grants Rabid Melee
  • All other Units - grant nothing, but can be used for goodies and Melee bonuses
They also gain new items and abilities for each kill they accumulate.
  • First kill - Sixth Sense
  • Each kill after first - 1 Mist Shroud
  • Each kill after second - 1 Snare
  • Each kill after third - 1 Fireward

This new mode will be entering the testing phase soon, before hitting the servers officially.
During said testing phase, and even after, I'd welcome feedback and critique to help with adjusting/fixing anything as necessary.

In the newest patch (25-06-18), together with the rough dm_ remake, this infect_ mode was included.
Try out infect_skull (download INGAME via mapcheckversion in console) to test. Afro

Anyone willing, leave me some feedback so I can shape the mode accordingly.

This mod could not be tested properly. A few adjustments need to be made to write a detailed report.


The warm-up time is too low, play starts before you can first "gather". The mini map must be disabled. I see beast, beast looks human. so you can not hide to survive.
A minimum of 5 players must be otherwise the game is over before it has started.
Nomads have to get a bit more speed to escape
And is it possible that if you start the mod or on the server an info field so see with the rules of the respective mods?
There is no end picture after the end of the game. This confuses the players and has the feeling that the server has crashed.

Error could not be found in the 2 try.
After the adjustments maybe.
