New Flag Ideas

Post by Legolas_ » Fri Nov 11, 2005 4:33 pm

1) It is a combanation of the Sheild flag and the Steamroller flag, I call it the Demolisher Flag. When you grab it you can not shot but like the Steamroller flag you can run over people but, since you are basically defensless you combine it with the sheild flag. So you cant get hit. Only downside : 15 Second time limit.

Suggestions wanted.
--------------------------
2). Arrow flag - You have a limited amount of Arrows in you quiver. The arrows peirce through the tank, not killing the tank but slowing it down, then, you switch to regular bullets and shoot the tank.

Suggestions wanted.
--------------------------
3). Terrorists flag - This one will only work on FFA. You pick up the flag then go into a group of people and fire. Your tank makes a big explosion and kills everyone around you. Badside: 1 shot and you die as well.

Suggestions wanted.
--------------------------


Thx for your time

terrorist (suicide bomber?) flag sounds like it would be great fun. unless one makes associations to real life. then again we have a genocide flag.. the first one with sr and shield sounds good too.

1) Hmmm 15 seconds.... It's a bit hard to chase after someone in 15 seconds.
2) I have to drop the flag to kill the tank?
3) I'd call it the SBomb (doesn't sound so scary/real life-ish).

I wish servers could configure their own flags with a tiny bit of programming. Couldn't be too hard (in a newer version that is...)....

Win XP

Only one problem with the "grenade flag". The program right now isnt configured to make your shots...curve in a sense. The only way to make this work would be to make the shots in a boxy path..which still would not be too pretty. :roll:

And I know this isnt probably possible, but if anyone has ever played a "super mariokart" game, there is a box that you can collect and once you trigger it, it makes everyone on the map shrink and decrease speed and power. Could this be a flag or world weapon? :idea:

Not bad. But it would have to take motion as like the flag when you drop it. So the "grenade" would go straight up and come down.

How about the flag just creates a shockwave when it hits the ground after being dropped?

That would require less timing...
And then, as we aimed at each other, in the moment of truth, I knew...

that someone had stolen my wallet.

Your own shockwave (normally) does not kill you. The only time it would kill you if they use a "server weapon". Like ShockwaveDeath.

Tell me if I'm wrong. :) ... :o

nah, youre right Met.

yes, usually your SW doesnt kill you. so then, youd be OK if your 'grenade' hit you.

on number one, the demolisher, how about a flag that makes you totally impervious to shots (exept SW and SB?) for 15 seconds, and you can run people over as with steamroller. you go the same speed and acceleration as with the Agility flag, however you have enourmous momentum, and can't stop/start easily, so you have to be careful not to run into a teammate.

so basically: sheild + steamroller + agility + momentum x10

and how about 'Wrecking Ball (+WB)' for the name...

the only thing is .... is it a good or bad flag????

Agilty makes you slightly faster and more nimble faster turn and faster reaction to control
I Think

it gives you an enourmous burst of speed, then you go back to normal. try pressind 'forward' repetedly, and you will see. and i don't think it works with the mouse, only keypresses.

another flag that would be cool is a when you shoot a bullet it is like normal except when it explodes it gives out a little sw.

ya neet =)

and the bullet could be alil slower , like a heavy bullet , and make it blinky , so your teemies know when they see it to run away lol

an how about we could also set off the SW bullet when we wanted it to?

like if you press a key or the fire button again , that's when it would trigger the bullet to "explode" .

oui? non? ;)

The "exploding bullet with mini sw" idea has been put forth (and shot down) about a million times... maybe someone should add it to the FAQ sticky. :?
Optimism is just a milder alternative to denial.
