I started working on a game mod and one of the first hacks I performed was making the fade the default lifeform. This was essentially the first test of my hunter mod, and I thought I'd share it to help mappers.
This mod spawns you as a fade in the game, without needing to enable cheats etc. This gives you an opportunity to easily test your map for fade movement hinderance. Might even help me practice my fading skills, chuck a few bots in there and swipe>blink>swipe :)
There is only 1 lua file amended - AlienTeam.lua
All I've done is set the respawn entity to fade and removed the fade from the tech tree limitation.
