View Full Version : Man the Mortars

28th Mar 2000, 04:55 PM
After checking out the turret guns i wondered if there was any chance of mortars in inf.

They could be implemented in two ways:

1) The mortar is introduced as a wepon and has to be carried by an individual player and must be set up and due to its heavyness only has 2 ammo.(this breeches the no new wepons polocy)

2) The mortar is added to an individual map as a fixed turret but can have as much ammo as the mapper sees fit.

The only problem is aiming the morter as i dont actually know how it is done but think trajectory, speed, power play a big part.

let me know what you think anyway as it could be usefull in assult levels.

I really like morters!
here is my thoughts: insted of having it fixed, make it weapon, and make it a light morter.(it would be a bitch to animate)

I said this before and I don't mind saying it again. If you want to aim the mortar, do what they did in Tribes with that targeting laser. I don't know how realistic this is, but it sure's heck worked in Tribes.
