    The Hunted Gameplay Mod
    This plugin was written with the intent of returning "Hunted" style gameplay back into TF2. The "VIP Escort" game mode was removed likely for the same reason that Robin Walker states in the TF2 commentary that the Commander class was removed - The game can become frankly unenjoyable if the Blue Bodyguard team is skilled but has a terrible Hunted, or vice versa. While I do take Mr. Walker's noble advice into consideration, I know there are a large number of players who are unhappy with our "replacement" Hunted game mode, Payload. While Payload is very very fun, it's no Hunted!

    This plugin is designed to work on any Attack/Defend style Control Point map or Payload map. Using this plugin on other map types will cause unexpected results!

    Please join our Steam Community for announcements and game events.
    Also read the TF2 Wiki Article with ideas and concepts for how to play The Hunted.

    Currently there are a few Hunted-specific maps! Check out the Hunted remake, vip_hunted!
    Interested in making a Hunted map? Read the Hunted Gametype mapping guide over at the VDC.

    Gameplay - How To Play The Hunted
    The objective of the Hunted Gameplay mod is for the Bodyguards - the Blue team - to escort The Hunted, a lone Engineer armed only with a Wrench, through the map to the Capture Points. Red team - the Assassins - only job is to kill the Hunted before he escapes!

    There are class restrictions for each team:
    • Red - Sniper, Spy, and Pyro.
    • Blue - Heavy Weapons, Medic, and Soldier. One player is The Hunted, an Engineer.
    In order for Blue to win, they will need to keep The Hunted alive long enough to reach the Control Point or Payload as normal. Blue team members are blocked from capturing Control Points/moving the Payload unless The Hunted is present! This means that the Bodyguards will need to stick together - and keep The Hunted safe.

    If the Hunted is killed, the Assassins are awarded a team point and all players will respawn.

    CVars
    sm_hunted_version - Plugin version.
    sm_hunted_enable - 1/0, Enable or disable the plugin. Default 1.
    sm_hunted_reset - Forces all players to respawn.
    sm_hunted_force - Selectes a new Hunted at random, then respawns all players.
    sm_hunted_set (username/userid) - Force a specific player to become The Hunted.
    sm_hunted_pyromode - 1/0, Limit the number of Pyros on RED based on a straight cap (0) or a percentage (1). Default 1.
    sm_hunted_maxpyros - 0-10, Maximum number of Pyros (if pyromode is set to 0), or the percentage of RED that can be Pyros (if pyromode is 1), note that 10 would be 100%, 5 would be 50%, etc. Default 3.

    Recommended Setup
    Dustbowl and Goldrush are the recommended stock maps for this plugin. There are currently two custom Hunted maps in the works - information about those will also be posted here when it is available. Any Attack/Defend style map, such as Gravelpit, or Payload map should work properly.

    Put "sm_hunted_enable 0" in your server.cfg so that the Hunted is disabled by default. In maps that you wish to play The Hunted, put "sm_hunted enable 1" in the mapname.cfg file.

    Features To Add
    • Add in a voting system for the Blue team, so that they can vote for a new Hunted. On occasion the Bodyguards will want to elect a new Hunted, such as the Hunted going AFK or other similar reasons. Coming in version 1.3.0!
    • Add in personal scoring adjustments for the Assassins who kill The Hunted.
    • Find a way to update the Scoreboard properly. Right now it is only updated at random, the trigger that updates it is a mystery to me at this point. Coming in version 1.3.0!

    Credits
    bl4nk for Sudden Death Melee Redux, the weapon strip code helped a ton figuring out how to strip the Engineer of weapons, ammo, and Metal.

    DJ Tsunami for TF2 Class Restrictions as it help me with ideas on how to limit the classes for the teams, as well as the "Show class selection screen" snippet.

    Sirc, MrTwoVideoCards, Mr. Happy, 1/4 Life, Jiko, azaroth, SixSicSix and his clan Soviet Propaganda, and the dozens of other playtesters that helped over the couple weeks that this plugin was originally developed.

    Wow. I'm going to test this as soon as possible. Maybe even create a map to both add to the list of maps and encourage this mod.
