      This weapon knows no teams (I'm pretty sure). Because it causes no damage, you can shoot your buddies all you want. Not that they will tolerate it for very long.


        I think secondary should make you able to lift enemy's of the ground and bash them against a wall or something. that would be as funny as hell.


          Get on with man!

          Release the **** thing already!!!

            When it's done
            Whatever comes later

            Well, I realized that the 'push' weapons do to people is embedded in the pawn's takedamage code. I offloaded the code to the weapon and now the secondary fire can boost teammates.

            Oh, and about the model... I need some help from Gusher and maybe someone else, because Milkshape doesn't do weapons.
            BTW Gusher, I'm not sure about the VTRAP name on the gun. I dunno. But the logo... it's not right. CSD's logo has a certain shape. I would suggest just removing it. Not to offend or anything, mind you. The rest of the gun is sweet.

            I removed the beam when it is not hitting anything. I have a scan reticle thing instead. Looks like this:

              -Primary fire slows target's momentum to a crawl. Turning rate is not affected, however.
              -Secondary fire pushes the target. It's like getting shot with a really powerful shock rifle, but no damage happens.
              -I am considering having this be a recharging ammunition weapon, or if primary is unlimited, or something...
              -I am also considering whether the secondary should be a charge shot or not.

              Finally, the biggest hurdle I have is AI. I don't have nearly a clue to how to get it to work.

              Any suggestions or other help would be welcomed.
              I don't want to be selfish or anything, but I already sorta made a pushing/pulling weapon (Still needs some tweaking and modelling). :bulb: I think alt-fire should be a charging-up thing of some sort.


                is it done yet is it done yet? (didn't even know about this untill today >_<)


                  looks good


                    where can i download this?


                      Tight! So hows the implementing of the model going?


                        v11 Beta Test any takers?

                        I have a test version for people to try out.

                        -Primary fire is a beam that latches on to people and slows their speed to a crawl.
                        -Secondary pushes people around.
                        -Currently it is set at infinite ammo.
                        -This version has no new model. I have no clue to the state of the model Gusher has been working on, and unfortunately I have problems making weapon models myself. The V-Trap looks like a blue-green tinted linkgun right now.
                        -Bots currently only use the push function, unless their target is a flag carrier. Hmm, I bet they can't tell if it's a ball carrier, though. Bleh.

                        Oh yeah, before I forget: I'm so lazy I didn't make a replacement mutator. You have to use something like SwitchArsenal (Which you already have, right? Right?). Download SwichArsenal from the link below if you for some reason don't have it.
