Planes and helicopters!!!!1111oneoneone
« on: May 19, 2007, 07:22:29 am »
So, this isn't your usual SSHV (Soldat Should Have Vehicles) idea, something involving vechicles, but in slighty different way. I think if our gostek spawns high in the sky, he should jump off from a plane, or a helicopter (Or maybe even dragonfly xD), to make everything look more realistic. So, what do you think?

I think it'd be cool, no doubt there.. But it'd just take a shitload of modding, and there's definitely better ways to spend the time.

Sorry mate.

I'd find it quite funny, but then the spawn points should be very high, so it makes sense.

How about. Take a helicopter/dragonfly/apple/pinata/cow scenery, and stick it high up in the air. Have the player spawn from that. Ta da!

And no one even had to change anything.

You don't know that. The sticky refers specifically to controllable vehicles.

This is an interesting idea (it would be coll to watch the air transport that dropped you off fly away ;D), although I'm not sure it's worth the coding time, although of course I have no idea if this would be simple to code or not. It might look kinda weird on ctf_Dropdown2...

Blood, little bits, all make soldat much more enjoyable. This would just be strange and hard to code in, and it wouldn't really do anything.

as for the blood... blood is a must have for many reasons that i dont feel like getting into as for  "And what these little bits that fly when there is explode do?"

wtf are u trying to say... you sound like that episode of chapelle show where tyrone the crack head finds the magic camera and utters the funniest phrase of all time "What dees buttons do?"

Just make a helicopter scenery image and stick it up high somewhere and put a spawnpoint there. Good enough?

Scrap that actually, waste of time F11.

There is a map that has this.  Its called "inf_Osjelly" or something similar to that name.  You can find it at Leo's Real Infiltration Servers.

i dunno it probably would be really un-needed but i think it would be pretty cool to be dropped in by plane, but i can see why people are saying it's not needed because it isn't really it would just be a kind of cosmetic thing

Although, like Keron Cyst said, it would be extremely cool and distracting to watch your transport fly away.
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.

Ugh...

Make Plane / Heli / Dragonfly scenery, and make a spawn point from that.  Want to make it move?  Create Your own game that has vehicles so that you can be proud of it, and play that, so that we don't have to hear your bitching about you wanting vehicles.

a helicopter/plane that you spawn from and don't control in any way, shape or form will ruin soldat?

It seems like an interresting idea to me.
However, if you are after that 'Black Hawk Down' effect i would suggest having a look at a few of the player-created maps.
I cant remember the name of the map but you spawn inside a hovering Gunship. I would like more maps to be like that lol!

Am I the only one who hates people using this single response without any backup evidence besides that it would 'Ruin the feeling of Soldat'? Seriously, what are we, neanderthals who, if given anything even SLIGHTLY more advanced than pac-man are unable to play because of undue complication?

Plus, that overused argument doesn't even apply here, it's not something that would destroy the ever-so-fragile 'simplicity' of Soldat, it's just a fricking eyecandy for ****ing out loud...

*EDIT* And how the hell would it ruin the gameplay?

@Frunkamunch: *stolen from Planter's* Well said Mr. Peanut, well said.

THIS WOULD NOT FREAKING RUIN SOLDAT.

Like Frunk said, it's just eye candy. EYE CANDY WOULDN'T RUIN SOLDAT.

It'd just make it look kewler.

Oh dear god.

You have no idea what those would cause. Not only are they hard to program, but MM would also have to make new animations for them, physics calculators, wireframes, health meters, possibly bloom lighting, new sounds, and such.

Not to mention the lag they would generate.
