Subscribe to download: NS2+

Mod ID: 812f004

This mod (previously known as Custom HUD, or CHUD) aims to improve, fix and expand NS2 in order to bring players a better experience. It contains extra customization options and quality of life improvements. This mod needs to be installed on the server.

You can check current and future progress through the NS2+ Trello[trello.com] or the NS2+ GitHub[github.com] page.

Main Menu Mods:
- The server browser will highlight other servers running this mod. If the server requires a map change because of any mod update, the player count will show up in red. If the server has disabled settings that conflict with your own the "ns2+" text will show up red. This can't be seen with the vanilla server browser.
- You can check and change the NS2+ Options menu before joining a server.

- You can customize your HUD and visuals with a new menu entry with tons of options such as multiple alien visions, hitsounds, etc.
- Weapon autopickup option for empty weapon slots.
- Personal stats when you die and at the end of the round. You can check your last life stats by pressing the voiceover menu button (X by default).
- You can see parasited marines through parasited buildings.
- Commanders can disable click selecting for marine units (so marines don't get selected when medspamming).
- You can customize the size of the killfeed text/icons and the color of the border highlight to your liking.
- Players can make the ragdolls dissolve instantly.
- You can hide the viewmodels per-team if the server allows it.
- Commanders can always see if a Marine has a welder equipped.

Server specific features:
- The mod will check for updates for all server mods every 15 minutes and will notify the players if there's been updates. If the server is empty it will cycle the map.
- Ability to disable certain client NS2+ features.
- Display average team skill on the scoreboard.
- Display player skill on the scoreboard pre-game (useful for captain games).
- Server operators can check and configure features by typing "sv_plus" in console or editing NS2PlusServerConfig.json.

Private training improvements (included in vanilla NS2 since build 267):
- Respawn cheat commands always spawn the player with their previous equipment and upgrades in first person view. It's also no longer needed to type "switch" to go between teams, you can type "skulk" as a marine and it will switch you automatically.
- New cheat command "respawn" that spawns you as your last class, with your last equipment, at your last position before you died. Use "respawn_clear" to clear all the remembered settings.
- New cheat command "jetpack" that makes you respawn as a jetpack marine.

Server needs to have cheats on and then the commands you can use are in the description, although they are in vanilla now.

Just wanted to say the new HL2 style HUD is AMAZING!

I've wanted to add the options to the main menu for a while (if you have the mod mounted, of course), so I'll add that to my to-do.

Is it possible to access the NS2+ options without being in a NS2+ server? You've got so many features I find myself wanting to take time to look at all the options, but if I do it in a server I end up getting idle-kicked. Thanks!

Those messages are hardcoded engine-side.

would it be possible for clients with the ns2+ mod active who are banned from a server to display a reason why apon dropping instead of just "kicked"?

Yeah, it's normal, it's just that the workshop has the CHUD folder in lowercase when it should be uppercase, this only happens in Linux, obviously. I've released an update, it shouldn't give any warnings now.
