    I dunno what sprang this 'ole memory in my head, but I was curious if anyone remembers this game & mod. I've always loved it, and sadly the game is no longer popular. Wouldn't it be cool if something like this came about again? I searched and searched for actually gameplay with this mod, and I can't find anything. In-fact, this is the ONLY picture I could find of it.

    Quake II - Laser Mine CTF

    Lasermine CTF is basic Q2CTF with a few tweaks. First off is the reason it's called Lasermine. Instead of throwing hand grenades, you fire a mine that sticks to the first surface it touches. It then emits a laser perperdicular to that surface. When someone touches this laser, the mine explodes. This can lead to some interesting defensive tactics.

    Another feature is the micronuke. When a micronuke is dropped, you get a message on your HUD and a counter of how far away you are from in it (in game units). When it blows up, it kills ANYTHING within 750 game units (even if you're behind a wall) and anything within visible range of 2000 units! The last major feature of Lasermine CTF is "MidnightCTF". In this version, all the lights are out, and all you have to get around the maps are your flashlight and flares.

    The Bottom Line: Basic CTF with some cool new features. If you like CTF but need that little bit more, Lasermine CTF is just what you want. It you just like to put down scary bombs that make people run away, well, Lasermine CTF is what you're looking for, too.

    I actually never played this so I don't know what it is, but catch the chicken was the shit.

        I actually remember this mod and was surprised to see it mentioned. I used to play it all the time, it's super fun!

          I'm not quite sure how to get Quake 2 CTF working. Anyone familiar? (I'm not even sure if I have it installed properly)

          Nevermind, I have a CTF Dedicated server running right now called "Plaguefest" for now.
          Not sure if any mods are actually working though.
