Objective: Get a moving tank that has a working turret and machine gun that players can fire.
Problem: moving objects cant incorporate turrets.

My idea:
Take the giant tank model that players can move around on, make the turrets on it, keep them well rooted in it, and place the entire thing on a 'treadmill' type, that turns on and off when a switch INSIDE the tank is pressed.
Now, that might work, but if the players get behind the tank, they'll get hauled along too, right?
Soloution: make the tank the mode of transport over terrian that is instantly mooshing fatal to players, like super-acid or somthin :)
or hyper-electrified cola :)

I think what he means is the same idea i had with my train...

U put a static tank, which can shoot etc, spawn places in it...

It's the level which is moving around the tank, not the tank moving in the level. So you have to put everything(scenery, your whole level) as a func train.

No, I'm saying static scenery, static tank, conveyor under the tank.

SoHL code'd be good, imho... expect that it'd take some time to add, though, so it'll probably have to be for a version after 2.0.
