I think it would be interesting to spawn as a redeemer\strangelove. the IR Missle mod. (note I never said fun or cool.)

twas merely a joke. and no it's not quite the same....spawning as one would mean that you can't jump off. there's no you to jump off.

I dunno, sure doesn't sound hard to do. Whether it's interesting or fun or not is another thing ;) but it sure doesn't sound hard to do.

ummmm what do you mean spawn as a rocket?

ROFL.... it's a primitave human concept called a joke. I'm not very good at applying it as it requires deccelerating mental processes by a factor of 2.

this was a farce and IF anyone produces it I will A) laugh quite hard and B) maim them for their own good.

if you want to experience the goodness of being a missile go DL the glorious mod called Strangelove.

There may be a grain of sanity in that lunatic concept.

Think - Tweak strangelove so its a lot harder to die when you hit a wall. Now, add controls for steering the strangelove while you're in aiming mode (I forget what key it is to switch from steering mode to aim mode - use the strafe controls for the new steering). Turn the explosion death size down (that's already in the mute menu). Remove the difference between hull damage and health/armor. Give the player 3 seconds after spawning, then the rocket auto launches, and you can't hop off. That allows the player time to aim, so he doesnt shoot himself right at a wall. Don't play this on cramped maps.

You now have a neat hybrid of UT and Airfight - like airfight with UT weapons and UT levels, and a turret. Plus the fun unrealism of not dying when you bump into somthing. It might be tricky to pick things up - perhaps a grappling hook might be needed to grab weapons and powerups (not to mention possible sharp turns if the coders are patient enough for that) - otherwise, just reducing the wallhit damage to negligible would allow you to pick up gear well too.

This could be good. Maybe I should send this along to the dude who made Strangelove2?
