Mods, please mark as a megathread, since I’ll be putting a lot of info here.
What is Trouble in Terrorist Town?
Trouble in Terrorist Town (TTT) is a gamemode included with Garry’s Mod 10. It’s about a group of Terrorists who have traitors among them, out to kill everyone who’s not a traitor.
A small number of players (25% of the total) is selected as Traitors, who have to kill all the Innocent players (ie. the rest of the players). Those innocents know they are in the majority, but they do not know who is Traitor and who is not.
The Traitors must use the element of surprise and their special equipment if they are to succeed. The Innocent just have to survive, which means finding out who the Traitors are and killing them before they kill you. Of course everyone is holding a big gun, and everyone looks suspicious…
For the Innocent, knowledge is power: who is acting strangely? Who can be linked to evidence found on corpses? Who is even still alive?
Of course, if you get killed early on it can be a bit boring to sit out the rest of the round (which last between 5-10 minutes). To keep things interesting, spectators can press E (“use”) on physics props to “possess” them and move them around, perhaps to affect the game in creative ways.
Where do I get it?
You do not need to manually download or install anything if you just want to play.
If you are a server owner looking to host a TTT server, or a mapper making a TTT map, you probably also don’t need to install anything, because TTT comes with GMod.
You can find this small tutorial text in the game as well, by pressing F1.
It’s all about
A small group of Traitors is randomly picked.
Together they have to kill all the Innocent.
The Innocent do not know who is a Traitor and who isn’t.
The Traitors must use this fact, because they are outnumbered.
If you die, you will not respawn until next round.
Innocents will not know you are dead until they find your corpse.
Corpses may have information that leads to the killer.
Traitors can buy special equipment.
Their Equipment Menu can be opened by pressing C.
Innocent players who were selected as Detectives may also buy
special detective equipment, which can help them find the Traitors.
As Innocent, do not kill too easily! Killing other Innocents costs you a lot of points and Karma.
Make sure you’re shooting a Traitor.
As Traitor, hide the body! Innocents get valuable info from corpses.
As Traitor, communicate and cooperate! Cause distractions,
lead targets into traps, cover up kills made by other traitors.
As Detective, search bodies! All Innocents can
see and use the results you find.
Q will drop your weapon so you can pick up another.
C will open the Equipment Menu, if you are Traitor or Detective.
Shift sends voicechat only to other Traitors.
F1 shows the Help and Settings menu.
Set a key for Suit Zoom in your settings to use Radio Commands.
Your Karma starts at 1000 and goes down if you damage players who are on your own side.
It goes down less if their Karma is lower.
If your Karma is low when a round starts, you get a penalty to your damage that round.
By playing clean rounds where you don’t harm teammates, you regain Karma.
Innocent also get some for hurting Traitors.
The Karma value shown on the scoreboard updates only after the round ends.
During a round, someone’s true Karma might be lower.
That was all copy and pasted from the website, so let’s get started with the discussion.
