Advanced Jets
« on: June 11, 2006, 01:10:25 pm »
I think the Jets are dull, there should be more movements to it than thrusting you upwards. I've played Soldat quite a while now, and I really think improving the Jets would improve the gameplay.

The movements could be as simple as; if you tap (Down Left x2) + pressing Jet, you'd fly downwards in that direction - Instead of just flying upwards (Which really is a pain in the ass).


Please comment this as you feel it's most comfortable.

hold space and select direction? (up control stays the same.) although diagonals could be a bit tricky.

Yeah, maybe hold space to change direction of the Jets, good idea man.  ;)

Don't forget prone-jetting!  If used when not expected, it can be a very effective maneuver.

Also, in case you haven't noticed, it's not just thrusting upwards.  If you hold movement keys while jetting, the angle of your feet will shift and you'll jet in that direction.  It'd be cool to have more options, but the current system isn't as broken as you make it sound.

I remember when I suggested this, it has already been suggested, which means this is an ancient idea.

That does not degrade it: a faster mean of travelling downwards would still be awesome, and provide opportunities for great dodge moves and fast getaways.

I don't know. How would the soldat jet down if the jets are on his boots? Flip around or something?

It's something worth thinking about, but personally I would think it would make it too easy to dodge bullets.

And yeh, if you want to go down+left or down+right, you can just prone jet.

Prone jet is good enough. It's kind of cool to do little rolls with the jet so it looks like you're rolling/hovering.

Experiment with the pack, lot's of fun stuff to do

It's too slow.  :(

Yeah, the Soldat should probably sway as he's flying.  ;)

The part from the knee to the foot would bend, pointing the jets 65 degrees so you'd be flying downwards. And yes, that's the point, making it easier to dodge bullets. Proning is a move of itself, proning in air while using this would make you go even faster.

Good, it's a great idea. What do you mean by space?

ya...i would like to see some changes to jetting....it would be abused to run away with flags and the likes though
Your acting like your having a duel and your opponent gets a pistol and you get a spork.
Isn't that pretty much what it is? I dunno wtf a spork is, I suppose it's way weaker than the pistol since you compared that to this.

I say abusing the jets are impossible... How? How?? How do you abuse jets?

So no changes - dont' fix it if it's not broken

Ah, so you could have a space map. That would be cool.

And you say you want it so that it's easier to dodge bullets. I think that it is already easy enough to dodge bullets. I'm just thinkin that if this happens, auto users will get another advantage, it won't matter as much to them because they have 20+ bullets to spray around. Someone using a ruger, barret, m79, or deagles will have a lot less chance of killing someone if they can do some jet move out of the way.

Right, but zero gravity spheres should be in the Map Maker.  ;)

Yeah, that would be nice, but I'd perfer just using the Jet Boots.  ;)

... until there become so many abilities that people start trying to hack by performing multiple movements simultaneously and people think they're cheating, etc....

Why do you always use bold-face, Yuth? It's annoying.

I dont really think we should advance jets, but maybe we can still do with some other type of advancement..like when the blackflip was put in.
