    Yes I'm the original creator of this, everyone else is a liar.

    Latest Update November 22nd 2012:
    New maps.rar Replaced DungeonRush, EJsMap, FloatingCastleEdited, Flying Fragments 1 & 2, Judg3mentDay 1 & 2, MagicForest, Mazelike, PeterShamEdited, SeveralWays, SitanelsCastle, TheTunnels and generator_big_castle with Warrforks edits.
    Recommended amount of players: 12
    Best host type: Gold

    Servers that host this every now and then
    Cat n Mouse [Hosted by BlauweSmurf]
    Cat and Mouse [Modified F2P hosted by Frantitich]
    Warrforks Cat n Mouse [Modified Gold]
    Mechas Cat n Mouse [VanillaMode Gold]
    What is this?
    I'm not very good at explaining things but I'll try. This is a gamemode a fairly large amount of you know about, in this gamemode there are two teams Cats and the Mice. The cats are knights who play the role of the seeker or hunter their job is to locate and kill off all the mice on the other team. Playing cats is usually easier then playing mice but it still requires thought when it comes to a mouse being to high up to reach with just one cat (Shield stack fools) or slash jumping/vaulting. The mice are limited builders that need to use the maps terrain to the best of their ability to survive the entire 4 minute round. Those who are good at making spike traps without much to work with will probably excel in this. Note: Mice team is meant to be slightly larger then the cat team
    Tip: Use crouch noclip to your advantage

    How do mice win? I always die before the round ends!
    Mice win the time limit ends or when all of the cats are killed off. Playing the mouse team at first seems hopeless for beginners but with a bit more practice and learning the maps you'll get better as time goes by. I don't want to make this a guide on how to play this team but well but all I can say is it requires thinking, no derp builders.

    Slightly modified stuff ◘=Will be added in when scripting is released
    Both:

    Four hearts
    Always zoomed in, unable to zoom out
    Team damage (Don't fall on your teammates from large heights)
    Small light radius
    Day and Night Cycle 2 minute days 4 minute matches
    Hidden shops and quarters (Won't be done until I can nerf bombs, shops will not give off light)
    ThickOre=2s NormalOre=1s Tree=1w GoldOre=2g
    No flags, no mirrormaps, collapsing near spawn
    Cats/Knights:
    Jab and Charge time are a bit slower.
    Nerfed bombs
    No slash stun
    Spawns with 4 stone, 2 wood and 10 gold
    Mice/Builders:
    Slightly faster hitspeed
    Can only place Spikes-10s CastleBackWall-2s Ladder-2w and GoldBullion-10g CamoflaugeDirt - 3s 3w,
    Spawns 0 materials
    Block heads from world.png for camoflauge/looks cool purposes

    About the maps
    Some of these maps might look familiar so I'm giving credit where credit is due.

    generator_big_castle.cfg: Sitanels Castle Generator
    LadderMaze.png: Edited version of RambosLabyrinth by Clazy
    PeterShamEdited.png: Edited version of PeterSham in the Maps folder, can't find the original creator

    2. Extract CatMouseMaps.rar into the Base\Maps folder RENAME FOLDER TO CatMouse
    3. Head over to the Base\Scripts folder and do yo thang gurl
    Upatelogs

    do you, perphaps, have a list of servers that use this mode?
    I WANNA PLAY IT!
    it sounds great. the only thing that bothers me, is the heads: maybe special hats, but an entire head is just wrong.
    maybe a grass head, one that looks like a tree, whatever you want, but at least make it possible to see the eyes or something.
    nah, thats not it either.. I dont know. nevermind.
    good job!

    1. ladders suck as they make you have extended reach and slow you down.
    2. put mice hidey holes (team doors)
    3. i dislike those collapsy maps..

    Please die slowly in a fire. Collapsing maps are the ones I have most fun on.

    It slow everyone anyways, so, who cares?

    I'm hosting one if you want to try (WarrFork's Cat 'n' mouse!).

    the irony to this one. i'm already burnt.

    more about the extended reach being annoying as when you are running away by say a block away, jump out a ladder a knight can hit you

    There is no irony at all in this line.

    So, removing ladders and make the gamemode freaking hard/boring/raging for knights?
    Good idea! (here's is irony)
    Maps are good like that.

    you expect me to die from fire and yet I have already done that. Seems ironic to me

    you have maps that don't have any ladders on them, knights still win
    also your "(here's is irony)" i cant see it in your post ?

    Boring stuff for cats, maps are already fine it's just because you tried the gamemode on a free server. It should normally be dark and way more easier to hide yourself as mouse.

    This gamemode is really awesome.
    Should be hosted more.
     
  14. this game mode sounds amazing, I think more servers should host this, maybe a ctf flag or sonething. Maybe have longer rounds? But all together nice idea dude:)

    If I added flags it would just be Rapid CTF.

    What are the rules to the Cat and Mouse server? Where could I find them? Because I've heard there are none, but I was frozen for going out of map?

    There are no official rules and even if there were I have no control over what people do on their servers, you'll have to talk to the server owner about things like that.
