Any programmers in the house? I've got a GREAT idea for a new gun that is more strategic than damage doing. Talk to me if u wanna hear it! :D :lol: ;)

Sure, let's hear it! :D ...

Alright. this is a UT gun that's primary fire launches a computer chip about the size of a steel marble from the gun in the BUF pack from Wormbo's site. It attaches to any PLAYER and gives no evidence to the player it attaches to. if it misses, it is re-loaded. if not, then using the primary fire again will telefrag an enemy or teleport you next to a team member. The team teleport idea is meant for ambushes in CTF or Assault. Basicly getting 5 players into an enemy base while only one has to actually go. Secondary fire emits a sticky translocator about the size of a normal translocator disc that will sick to walls, floors ceilings, ect. and is un-retrivable untill you teleport to it (by using alt-fire again) when then it's returned to you. the skin can be something like a creative mix between a ripper and razorjack (unreal weapon). Like the translocator, it has 1 ammo for each type of fire and you cannot pick up more.
How do you like it? Room for improvement?

Sounds like a nifty idea, perhaps more of an idea for a JB2003 Addon (but not before the mod itself is finished first).

... i have a "thing" for teleporter-guns in team games. A bad one...

Teleporters can be fun. But often enough, people dont like it.
Ever played Legend of Zelda...with a "hook shot" ? you shoot it at the wall or ledge, and the chain will pull you up to the wall or ledge. This way, you can still reach the ledge, no telefrag and you can be shot while going up (no complaints there :) )

the whole idea behind the translocator was a high-tech grapple ala Quakeworld CTF.

i kno but as i said, "The team teleport idea is meant for ambushes in CTF or Assault. Basicly getting 5 players into an enemy base while only one has to actually go." So, the translocator can'o do that. (Or a grapple). Another idea might be a mod allowing you to PICK UP your teammate's translocator discs and throw them.

Main reason I like the idea of the primary fire (attaching it to a person) is that it gives you translocating abilities but not "transloc-hopping" abilities or the ability to translocate to remote places of the map - IMO it's a nice solution to the two main problems with UT & UT2003's translocator...

I don't think it should telefrag the person it's attached to though (assuming it's an enemy), but just transport you next to them.

Also, the enemy players should be able to take out their own weapon thingy to detach it from a teammate, and if the player who placed it tries to translocate - he/she telefrags themself (because, if we have to be logical, lets say the beacon needs energy from the attached human to function ;))

This is a good idea, and would be nice to be a unique Jailbreak weapon IMO.

i guess so... But that's how weapns are made. and so an idea evolves...
The p-fire was good though, right?

still, nobody has mentioned my skin idea!

... not my style, that 80s neopunk Ripper skin... more into clean, metal + 1 color type of thing... grey + red and so on... in a way... (and i know some of you will thing blasphemy)... a Q3A style...

... that's just my stupid un-instructed opinion though...

Then try something like a redeemer and a claw (Chaos ut weapon).

the wepons we use are fine we dont need anymore:D

does EVERYBODY agree with her?

WAIT now REALLY. the game is allways illogical. FOR INSTANCE, a nuke couldn't fit in the redeemer. AND it's called UNREAL tournament for a reason.

I agree that UT's weapons are fine, but why wouldn't it work? It's do-able, and a simple concept (I'm thinking of UT2003 here). And it's not uncommon for team games to have their own specialised weapon (the Ball Launcher in Bombing Run, the Translocator was primarily made for CTF), so why would a simple, optional one for Jailbreak be such a bad idea? (Especially seeing UT2003 has one less [non-super] weapon). As I said before, I think the weapon would be perfect for Jailbreak in the sense that it removes the exploits which make the Translocator unsuitable for many Jailbreak maps, and I think it has the potential to be a really great, tactical weapon (not to mention fun, and "unreal" :))

Anyway, it's just an idea and chances are nobody will be bothered coding it but you never know...

I like the idea of this teleportation device aswell, but before someone starts coding this I think some sort of a stationary cannon would be even more usefull for JB2003 (thinking about the 'old' JB-OfMiceAndMen for example).

couldnt we just, tweek and perfect the weapons we have? :)
like flak more direct and slower reload, turn down the shock blast damage or make bio-rifle shoot further distance?
I think the trans should stay as a tool for reaching higher ground.

the wepons we use should be more powerful. the best gun is the shock rifle.the flack cannon takes for ever to kill someone that should be more powerful to:D

We are talking about Jailbreak 2003 in this thread - right? Our beloved [-will-] already did such a mod/mutator for UT2003 called WeaponStuff (http://modsquad.beyondunreal.com/review.php?id=178). :)

A nuke could fit in a redeemer, you only need less than 5kg of plutonium.
