would it be extremely difficult to create a grappling hook that could be used at the same time a player was using a weapon?

it wouldn't be that difficult provided you know how to code the grappling hook,then you'd have to make some keyboard assignements,and code the grappling hook as an inventory

Well, it's easy if you know how to do it. If you're completely new to UScript, it may be quite difficult (compared to, say, making a new weapon or something).

FYI, there are some of those already, so if you wanna do one, maybe you can get some ideas from them...

thanks guys. i'll look at the existing ones and try to put something together.
i'm not sure this is a good project for a beginner to take on, but i have to start somewhere.

I wrote a tute for a grappling hook that used some real world physics so you could do some cool stunts with it, but it went AWOL during the move from PU. But if anyone's interested, I probably have a copy kicking around somewhere that I can upload...

here's a divx movie of a q3a mod called alliance that uses an 'offhand' grapple. i'd like to make something similar. it's really fun flying around like spiderman (with a railgun :)

it's a pretty big file. 56kers beware!
