Oooo, Monster riding, sounds interesting. How exactly do you do that, just jump on its back??

Our new weapon dropping system is a lot of fun, too... I've spent ages just playing around with it :). It really can't be described, though... you have to see it. Hopefully we'll have time to make up a demonstration video sometime soon.

So true, especially the wrench and crowbar sounds for dropping are awesome :D
(Is the monster riding in beta 5?)

edit: oh sven, answer my PM

Gentlemen, mount your gargs! This creates many possiblities for new maps...

How on earth did you manage to think about something that stupid? :confused: :D

This will be interesting...



Riding the assassins, hmm...

:) haha ! :)

I remember I asked Sven back in 1.9 if we could have a feature to ride the Big Momma in Osprey. Back then it seems like madness and now it`s really going to happen.

:) Great ! :)

With a garg rodeo there's bound to be garg poop, don't fall off.
I can see it now some looney riding around on a garg beating the stuffing out it with a crowbar or pipewrench, this will be too f--king cool. I wonder if more than one person can get on. Can you all imagine 3 or 4 people on a monster beating it into submission?=(Co-op) This brings about a whole new dimension in Sven Co-op gaming. Riding a bull squid into battle or better yet 3 people each on a bullsquid riding into battle, hehe. Yet another tid-bit to increase the yerning for the release of 3.0. aaaaawwww, Ive fallen off my chair and I can't get up!

LOL :D...

Hey you know what would be cool? Riding Apaches, Ospreys and Alien Controllers!

By the way - can you ride other players?

Sven Viking

You can't ride on other players' heads, but you can ride along with them using the Barnacle. It's a lot of fun, too :), and can be useful. A player who's too lagged to do complex grappling can grapple onto a non-lagged player, essentially holding onto their back, while they swing between grapple points. Think Spiderman/Tarzan :).

Imagine all the minigunners of SC, riding on bullsquids........ are you going to allow that, btw?

Whoa, that weapon dropping thing caught me off guard... that was one of the things me and several others had brought up in the suggestion forum that were quickly shot down... but I guess that's just the next step since the HWgrunts were already going to drop the gat when killed.

And the monster riding? Wow, you guys are really aiming to make this the most fun mod ever! :D

Sven Viking
18-09-2003, 01:08 AM
Minigunners riding bullsquids: Actually, I hadn't thought of that... it's perfect, though. We'll allow it, yup... that sounds great. Only thing is, it'll be tough getting onto a bullsquid while holding a minigun for a couple of reasons.

(BurnOut64's edit: You said "greay" instead of "great" so I went ahead and fixed that for you.)

Hehehehe... Mwahahah... RPG + GARG=MAYHEM.

Yes, he is trying to make this the funnest mod ever, it's what he does. (It was already the funnest anyways.)

One question: Can you control the direction the monsters go, or do you have to wrangle 'em?

Turbo9000
18-09-2003, 12:01 PM
Hey, yeah! You guys should include commands to make a monster face your direction and one to make them walk forward! ....unless that takes too much away from the teamwork involved.

Hmm, immagine seeing an enemy grunt fleeing. You see a friendly bullsquid close to you, chasing the grunt. You jump on the bullsquid and keep your crowbar ready for when you come close enough to the grunt :)

you should make it possible to controll the friendly monsters a little "like a pack mule"

Re: Controlling monsters you're riding: I actually suggested that :), there's not time, though :(. For now, you need to get another player to lead the monsters about (presuming they're friendly. Obviously you can't control enemies).

Edit: What you /can/ do, though, is use the new npc_ commands to tell the monster you're riding to attack certain enemies.

Riding on the friendly Voltigore and picking out specific enemies for it to kill. That sounds fun. Or what if your riding on the Voltigore and have a bunch of baby Voltigores following you!

Is it possible to model a "monster" in such a way that it has an "inside" which players could sit in? I just thought that if we model-replaced a monster with some vehicle model (driver included!), a player could "drive" that vehicle around by using the npc commands. And others could get a ride too, if the vehicle was big enough. A quick shortcut method to making those driveable vehicles everyone always wanted.

i thing so, modeling is like mapping just a "little bit" more difficult and you need other programs :)
