Mod Reviews - Lithium

Ever want to change the different things in deathmatch that you can't with the normal DM flags? How about adding techs and grapple hooks to spice of the fighting? Lithium is a great server side only MOD that'll give you all that and a bag of chips!

What is it:

  • Server Side - It's a Server Side MOD meaning you don't have to download anything except for the GameSpy Tab.

  • Configurations - Every feature included is totally configurable by the server operator.

  • Runes - The same Runes/Artifacts included in CTF MODs plus a special Vampire Rune. The Vampire Rune will give you health everytime you inflict pain on others.

  • Grapple - Just like LM CTF's off-hand grapple, this grapple is pretty much the same, but without the model. You can grapple and use your current weapon at the same time.

  • HUD - The HUD on this MOD is informative to you. It'll show you your frag, frags per hour, what place your in, how many players, and your current Rune.

  • Observer/Chasecam - When you begin you start in observer mode. From there you can press your shoot button to begin playing, stay in observer mode, use the chasecam on players, or many other options included in the menu.

  • Safe Start - To give you a chance when your respawn, you are invulnurable for a short period of time giving you a chance to know what your doing.

  • Too Many Features! - There are just way too many features to explain in this review so I'll just name some: Map Voting, VWEP, Anti-Camp, Menu System, and many options settable for weapons such as starting weapons, damage they inflict and so on.

    With all the configurable options included in this MOD, you should be able to set your server the way you want it. This isn't really a normal MOD that changes gameplay drasticly and comes with sounds, levels, models. Thus is was hard to choose a rating for it, all I have to say is it is a MOD everyone should atleast try once.

    Overall Rating: 91%
