Wacky Wings Server?

Post by PlasticTank » Wed Jan 21, 2009 8:34 pm

I had an idea for an server where the _wingsGravity is set to positive and the _wingsJumpVelocity was set negative? I heard that there was a server like that already. Is there?

That sounds hilarious! And no, I have not heard of one like that, I think I have to experiment now...

The more I think about it, the more interesting it would be. It might not be exactly fair for the people on the ground, and the tactics are pretty much inverted from standard WG fights, and you'd have to have near-infinite WG jumps, but it would be interesting to see how it turns out. On another hand, since tanks are moving down, the upper (or lower) limit is the ground, which means that the WG attacker could effectively pin the defender to the ground, so WG fights don't consist of basically staying higher than your opponent and hoping he runs out of jumps.

OR EVEN BETTER! You could use it (with one/no jumps and possibly max _wingsSlideTime) to create massive "floating jumps" which could be a mechanism to leap great distances and clear giant buildings and stuff. THAT would be cool.

I think the _shotsKeepVerticalVelocity 1 would be fun.

I tried it out on my private server. It's fun but there is a problem If I was on a building and fall off with wings I would float up(normal) but, if I started on the ground with wings I would get a white ring around my tank, making it impossible to jump up. Is there a way to fix it?

I think the server that used to run with this game style had a physics driver jump pad on the ground so you could get up into the air.
