    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
    (Is the monster riding in beta 5?)

    edit: oh sven, answer my PM

    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 !

    Awesome

    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!

    Do it with passion, or not at all.

    LOL ...

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

    By the way - can you ride other players?

    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 .

    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!

    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?

    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"
    The Gmaniac - due to image limitations, custom smilies can not be shown, for those who must see, heres, Gmonke
    Give me a pipewrench and I can take on 30 gonomes no lie(even have demo proof )
