Mutators

LevelConfigManager (2006-2009)UT2004
An UnrealEd Mutator allowing you to modify the map gameplay to your choice.
Comment: This is a very often used mutator in Assault Trial maps and is usually a must use today; mainly because of the DefaultWeapons feature.
Download: EliotVU.com(w/source)
MutNoAutoFire (2006-2009)(w/source)UT2004
Replaces those annoying ShieldGun's that auto fire when being close to a player of your team, Note:Replaces the pawn class if it is xpawn or UTComp_Pawn, will not function properly if other mutators replacing the pawn class are running!
Comment: This is a very often used mutator in Assault Trial servers because this mutator fixes common exploits of the game such as movers not moving anymore in some cases and as well kills people that try to glitch through idling movers(such as non-complex doors), this mutator as well lets you configure the color of the ShieldGun and let you choose your own suicide message and many more.

MutBestTimes (2005-2012)UT2004
Records Best MapTime completion, Player Rankings, Website stats(Example), Client Spawn and (Solo Trial mode, Group Trial mode support) and many more small features.
Comment: Private trials mutator for my favorite servers.
Credits: .:..: he made the very first version/s(2005-2006) of this mutator then retired, which I continued then(2007), Gugi for fixing some iteration issue in the custom VotingHandler that they experienced only on their server.
Stats: WebBTimes An UnrealScript generated page displaying all map records on the web.
AccessPlus (2006)UT2004
An administrator mutator. AccessPlus was an admin utility designed for the once called UT2X community server. AccessPlus was based on AdminPlus, adding dozen more admin commands to manage your server.
What made AccessPlus unique is that it keeps track of all players connecting to the server and each of his/her alias name, upon connecting every name ever used will be to displayed to the server players and admins. Additionally the server will alert when a player connecting is downloading a file directly from the server, which is useful because it is an indication that a file is not redirected, the file being downloaded will be messaged.
MultiDodgeShieldGun (2007)UT2004
This gun is an extension of the modified ShieldGun of MutNoAutoFire, the difference is that whenever you hit a wall you will be able to dodge once again, the purpose of this is to make it possible for mappers to make more new and fresh Trial maps for dedicated players.
Comment: This mod has a hardcoded dependency on a specific version of MutNoAutoFire; the version of this mod is equal to the mutator version it depends on.
Credits: .:..: for an replication issue and Lt.Ryan for the idea suggestion.
MutDodgeJump (2007)(w/source)UT3
Allows players to jump again after they have dodged once (optional).
Comment: MutDodgeJump was the first second mutator released for UT3. The mutator was very well accepted by the community however old-skool players from UT did not for obvious reasons.
Credits: Mysterial for explaining some replication.

Discussion DodgeJump on Epic Games forums
UTTrials (17-11-2007)UT3
This was the awaited Trials gametype for UT3 which was unfortunately canceled due the lack of UT3 interest. This gametype adds back the Objectives system of Assault to UT3 for usage in Trial maps. The gametype supports records, DodgeJump, Enhanced ImpactHammer, Enhanced Scoreboard(and HUD) and many other essential features that UT3 Trials might have liked as well introducing a new Trial mode such as Survival, the gametype was planned to support 3 Trial modes: Solo(Like BT), Team(Like UT2K4) and Survival(New).
MutXMasPresents (2007)(w/source)UT3
Presents from Santa will be available throughout the maps played on your server.
Credits: Vincent for making the meshes provided with this mutator.
Download: EliotVU.com
Discussion: MutXMasPresents on Epic Games forums
MutEmoticons (2007)UT2004
Replaces the current played gametype HUD with a SmileyHud which replaces common used text smileys such as ':)' to a smiley image like on chat programs such as MSN.
Credits: .:..: The HUD code was written by him for his Unreal 1 port and InvasionX which I converted to a mutator with replicated configurable smileys.

MutCacheExtractor (2009)(w/source)UT2004
Lets you extract cache files from within the game even online!
Comment: This is a mutator that should be hosted on the server.
Download: EliotVU.com
Discussion: MutCacheExtractor on Epic Games forums
TrialGroup ((21-29)-04-2010)(w/source)UT2004
Provides functionality for mappers to integrate a group system which an external mutator is supposed to support for actually usage.
Comment: Provides several actors for trial mappers to make a team-trial map possible without cheating.
Download: EliotVU.com
MomentumReflectorGun ((3-6)-07-2010)UT2004
The Momentum Reflector Gun is a subclass of the LinkGun but instead of killing opponents, the gun is used to climb upon walls using precise aiming that may or may not require advanced skills depending on the challenge available in Trial maps.
Comment: This gun is a imitation of the Quake 3 Plasma Gun, for the use of wall climbing see: Weapon Techniques.
Download: EliotVU.com
MutEquipmentLevel (13-09-2010)UT2004
This mutator removes all the initial weapons you spawn with, except for the ShieldGun. Once a kill is made you will lose the ShieldGun and earn the AssaultRifle and so on. Once you suicide(or accident) you de-level meaning you'd lose the AssaultRifle and start again with the ShieldGun, you as well lose your score. Winning is not affected by this mutator.
TrialGroup_Extra (20-03-2011)UT2004
See above: TrialGroup. Adds an additional GroupLinkedTriggerVolume for TrialGroup Level Designers. This volume provides the L.D the ability to make more complex challenges for Group Trial players, by linking several volumes together which all have to be filled with a partition of the players of that group in order to trigger the event and move on to the followed up challenge.

UT2004 Maps

AS-MD-Scorpion-Escape (2004)

Description: In this trials level you have to solve several trial rooms to escape the building.
Versions: Beta(2,3,4,5,6,7), V1, V2 and V3.
Influences: In early versions there was a glitch which allowed you to land on the top of spikes, it was meant to wall dodge over these however soon hqf found out you can glitch those spikes and thus was later used on purpose in his map AS-TheEgyptianPyramid, from there on this became a basic idea used in many trial maps.

Textures

TechTexPackage

TechTexPackage is a simple theme originally designed for AS-ShieldGunTech which shortly became very popular and is used today on almost every new trials map, some people call it as the Trials Theme because it fits trials very well, though this theme is perfectly usable for any other gametypes.

Most of the content in the texture packages are Shaders which are usually based on the base texture with an added special effect that is self-made or standard from the UT2004 packages such as XEffectMat etc, all texture resolutions are max 512x512.
