Team Weapons
« on: April 17, 2007, 09:39:02 am »
Ok, this is rather longwinded so bear with me   :D

Most modders (and mod players) will know that there are two sets Gostek Characters for two teams. Meaning that a modder could edit them to give a diferent appearance for each team.

(For example, the Warhammer 40,000 mod can feature Tau soliders against Imperial Guard using two different Gosteks)

What i would like to suggest is that the same be applied to Weapons and even SfX.
Doing this simple change would open the door to modding capabillities. We would then have players using weapons that are exclusive to their team. (Unless the opposition nicks it off you!)

To sum up, a simple and subtle re-arrangement of files would have a massive effect on the modding community!
Please post your thoughts on the idea.

Yes. That would be great but one think - different .ini files for teams.

Aye! I support this!

It would make WW2 (and other multi-faction) mods make more sence. :D

The weapons-per-team option has already been posted, and the per team one is already possible...

But I still support. Just as SDFilm said, faction mods would work well. Who wants to see the Germans using an M1 Thompson? Not me. Plus, they didn't even have any .45 ACP weapons that I know of.

Think about this: Barrets/Rugers vs. Chainsaws and Knives! Snipers vs. Close Quarters!
Don't say that you're Magic. Because you aren't, and I am.
All-around good with weapons that aren't long range, except in TW.
Now be careful out there, soldier.

As a modder, i belive it would be a great idea because then i can improve my Warhamjmer 40,000 mod to accomodate a scenario to Imperial Guard (Using Imperial Weapons) against the Tau (Using Tau weapons)

Obviously if you killed somebody from the opposite team you could nick his gun. But appart from that all guns a exclusive to your teams.

Naturally, I support this. It's been brought up before, and it's quite a good suggestion.

Well, the way you suggested it, no way. Limiting certain weapons to a certian team would be annoying to say the least (for example, people stacking to get their favorite weapon, or even worse, having a weapon better suited for the map confined to a single team).

However, having different weapons.ini for the teams makes more sense and would actually be a good idea. About the appearance, well, having a team2 weapons-gfx file would rock.

He didn't say he wanted weapons limited per team, he said he wanted different weapons.inis and graphics per team, which is, uh, basically what you said.

Oh.

...


Well, that's what I get for assuming that this thread was exactly the same as the 5 other times it's been suggested, and skipping the actual text.


*EDIT* Yeah, THIS is what I was saying was a b.s. idea:

It would be fun to play like : Barretts vs Rugers Ak vs steyr aug


For reasons stated in my first post.

And the added fact that it adds no real elements to Soldat, it's just another so called 'realistic' suggestion.

I've always supported this. It would be a good bonus to soldat, it would actually feel like two different races of ppl or beings clashing.
sick a 100 posts! I'd like to thank santa claus and my dead cat.

I support the idea - with separate weapon.ini files of course.

Of course. It's ideas like THIS
Steyr's and Barret's VS AK's and M79's!...
that would kill Soldat.

*EDIT* Okay, no, not KILL Soldat, merely the servers it was implemented on.
