Sit in the Bleachers

Use Aztec’s Spectator mod to watch the game.

The Spectator mod was created as part of a pilot project for http://www.mlgpro.com. The folks at Major League Gaming (MLG) were investigating options for observing their Halo 2 matches. You can download the patch from http://www.halomods.com and try the mod for yourself.

Based on arguments about whether the Elite had a disadvantage over the Spartan, MLG does not use the Elite model in their tournaments. Since the Elite has its own biped tag, nearly all of the properties of the Spartan and Elite are separate. This meant that Aztec was able to use the Elite model to create the Spectator mod without affecting the competitors.

The spectator needed to be able to fly around the map, and he should not be able to meddle with a game. Therefore, the mod is designed so that that spectator cannot do things like pick up weapons or the flag, or even enter vehicles. To achieve this behavior, some properties from the Sentinel and Monitor bipeds were used. The HUD was removed by taking out dependencies of the HUD tags.
