      It's meant to be a remote-controlled Translocator beacon, not a remote-controlled "super-weapon". I'll make the damage an option (eventually), so if you want a more powerful Spider, you can have it.

      The Spider is considerably difficult to hit (being much smaller and a little faster than a player), so if it gets killed, that's the player's shortcoming.
      that bungie idea is GREAT!
      im thinking E deploys it...
      pressing e again releases the bungie...
      I'm not sure E (Use) can be overridden by the Pawn - it seems to be built into PlayerController. At the moment I have Crouch/Duck make the Spider fall down (jumping down without hitting another wall is difficult), so it could use that. This isn't likely to make it into the first release (depending on when I am able to release it.)

      BTW the screen shots cant you send them to a Cd then when you go to the enternet place just send it over and such....it should work^^
      ImageShack.

      Running


      SpiderLauncher/TransSpider. Notice the icon in the bottom-right corner, indicating if a Spider has been deployed. It also indicates whether the TransSpider is in normal TL mode or Spider mode.


      Camera, sitting on (the side of) a tree, looking down at porkmanii.
      Don't mind the lines up the top - they only appeared when I took the screenshot (all my screenshots came out like that...) :weird:


      Shut down, not being controlled (attached to the tree.)

      By the way, porkmanii, about the concept of the spider walking on ceilings? This will likely fit in with the previous attempts at people trying to have changing gravity centers or something, and to my knowledge, it's buggy as hell, as the system simply isn't meant to handle it well. Then again, what I'm talking about it people trying to make a map out of a sphere (like a small planet) and be able to traverse the sphere without falling off.

      Here is a link to a map/SDK that pulled this off, albiet it's pretty buggy. Thought it could be of some use to you.

      Thanks, actually the Spidering is working rather well already. I started messing around with gravity the other day, but haven't got far. I might look into that SDK thing when I get the chance.

      what kinda bugs do you got going on?
      and what have you done?
      and what have you to do?
      ...
      add me to the creaters plz^^
      Bugs - none that I know of.
      Progress - mostly complete, but without most of the optional ideas.
      To do - just the ideas (i.e. configurable damage, configurable health, bungie, etc.). I'd upload it, but I can't/shouldn't from here (getting the files here isn't the problem.)

      I haven't done the readme yet, but when I do, you'll all be in it.

          that isnt used is it?
          yea well i forgot the damage was a configurable

          yea the bungie should be looking like something like this
          ///////////////////
          with a metal look to it

          at the end of the bungie
          in a later version(the bungie should be a later version)
          yea the readme wil be easy as hell to do^^

          anyway

          at the end of the bungie there should be some clamp thing that an enemy can fire at and if so they can break it makeing the transpider fall down^^

          now lets see >.>

          yea lets see how granades inflect the movements :P

              This is excellent for spying on enemies.

              I can imagine a scene where Remus is patrolling the halls in CTF-Face3 while that spider is slowly crawling on the wall. Remus turns around because he heard something and doesnt see the spider. It's on the roof right above him. Then Remus shrugs it off and continues patrolling the hall. After remus exits, the spider mine continues going around the entire base. The spider reaches where the flag is and there's 5 soldiers gathered in a circle discussing plans on attacking team Blue's base. Unfortunately, they red team doesnt know they are being spied on. So, the controller of the spider warns the others and they move to their positions to repel the attack. And then, the blue team succeeds in defending their base. Then 1 of the red soldiers was like, "How the hell did they figure out their plans?!" Then the spider walks behind him and he turns around and says, "Oh shh.." That's when the spider jumps up and explodes.


              I got good movie thoughts eh?

                  that isnt used is it?
                  yea well i forgot the damage was a configurable
                  Every key on my keyboard is used, and then some (key combos.) :haha:

                  The damage and health aren't configurable yet, but they will be.

                  Crouch/duck will most likely trigger the bungie.
                  at the end of the bungie there should be some clamp thing that an enemy can fire at and if so they can break it makeing the transpider fall down^^
                  What should this clamp look like? I'm no modeller...
                  yea lets see how granades inflect the movements :P
                  What purpose does that serve? If grenades are stuck to you, you're as good as dead anyway...

                  TRANSPIDER readme
                  Don't worry, I'll do the readme.

                  fire=deploy a transpider
                  atl-fire=change to the normal translocater
                  when in fire

                  alt-fire=teleport to the transpider
                  q=controll the transpider
                  when in q
                  fire=blow up
                  atl-fire=translocate to mine
                  w=forward
                  s=backwards
                  a=left
                  d=right
                  space=jump
                  x?=install the bungie(to be added at a later version
                  when in x
                  space=go up bungie
                  c=go down bungie
                  x?=release bungie
                  fire= deploy TransSpider or normal beacon, depending on current mode. If a beacon/Spider is active, recalls it (Spiders explode when recalled.)
                  alt-fire= while a beacon is active, teleport, otherwise toggle Spider/normal TL mode.
                  q= control the TransSpider, or view camera as usual if in normal TL mode.
                  w/a/s/d/space= movement as usual while controlling Spider

                  And eventually (not yet):
                  c/Duck= activate bungie if on a ceiling. While bungie is active, extend its length (go down)
                  maybe ThrowWeapon or some other unused key= deactivate bungie and fall to ground.

                    ok more this to add
                    im thinking the bungie will be like the size of the pretty trans light
                    ad the hook on the end allows the transpider to hang there...
                    makes sence :P
                    anyway
                    it will look lik a box with little hooks on the side :P
                    easy enuff

                    the grenade are like normal spiders with nades on them...gives a bigger boom

                    so heres an idea for a later version

                    ALLOWS TO STICK TO PPL AND VEHICLES
                    because the normal spider mines blow up with contact to people or vehicles no 1 has really seen what they do when they dont explode
                    because off the unseen hooks in there leggs
                    (uses geco[or wahtever that lizzard is]hairs from there feel it allows them to grab onto anything)
                    allowing the transpider to ride piggy back on an enemy
                    vehicle or player or an ally vehicle or player

                    this allows it to move around faster

                    it also allows the funny sceens of the enemy shooting 1 of there ally's to death to kill the spider on there head

                    his is an option to add^^

                    ohyea can you give us a pic of the option screen :P

                    good work and remember that host here pm or wahtever

                    use that site :P

                    WE WILL HAVE IT ON THE WEB BEFOR CRISTMAS!

                      Actually, the TransSpider doesn't blow up on contact with people/vehicles. I may be able to allow spidering on people/vehicles...
                      (uses geco[or wahtever that lizzard is]hairs from there feel it allows them to grab onto anything)
                      :weird: Sure, a mechanical spider with hair...
                      this allows it to move around faster
                      Attached to a vehicle, yes. Spider Mines have a ground speed of ~500 UU/sec. Normal players are slower, at ~400 UU/sec.
                      ohyea can you give us a pic of the option screen :P
                      Possibly, but not until next week at the earliest (no internet access until then.)
                      WE WILL HAVE IT ON THE WEB BEFOR CRISTMAS!
                      Most likely.

                          yea see there are these lizzards with cool hairs on there feet
                          that allows them to walk on upsidedown glass :P

                          anyway they took them hairs and put the idea to the transpider allowing them to climb :P

                          yes who cares about there speed it still be fun to hitch a ride^^

                          jump on the flag carrier and right befor they reach the flag base BOOM they die and you get a laugh
                          it be fun to bungie off of a raptor

                          it blows up when it gets close to enemy's
                          so its like a touch thing :P
                          ITS CLOSE ENOUGH! to be considered touching

                          anyway why cant you get the internet?
                          thats like a requiterment :P

                            Yes, I know that. My point is - why would a mechanical Spider need that, and how would it have hairy legs?
                            it blows up when it gets close to enemy's

                            The Spider Mine does, but not the TransSpider. At least, not yet.
