    i once read that there was some1 that made an armor shard...

    does it exist (not a freakin 10 mb mod or so)

    and if it doesnt exist or is in a big ass mod could some coder/scripter make it an stand alone thiny i wanna use it in the buf map im making (would be a cool mod 2 add with the buf pack makin random health vials armor shards

    if im correct...chaos ut has an armor shard but its a big phat mod so isnt helping out...

    could s/o make it PLEASSSSSSE

    maybe, but im not sure how well it would work. i havent looked at the code yet, but since 2 kneepads dont make 100 armor, things might not work right. ill give it a try though. just what do you want the shard to look like?

    do you mean convert some vials at random to armour shards when the map starts up? that would be cool.
    going by what i've read about writing mutators, it should be fairly easy to code.

    btw if you are gonna add sound make it almost the same as an health vial.

    most of the time healthvials are used 2 let someone know his opponent nearby has 2 be the same for the armorshards....

    i have it done, if it works. i just have to re-install UT to get it running again to test though. (bac XP :stick: ) then i will do a mutator code. what should be replaced?

    uhm would be cool if it could replace random (about 50 %??)health vials in a map (or simply put in a map by a mapper)

    If you wanna make translucent textures, you just take the texture and open it in photoshop (dunno if paintshop treats layers the same way)
    select all
    cut it and paste it
    Make the lower layer black
    adjust the transparency of the "skin" layer to whatever level of translucensy you want.
    Dont use tools that darkens the picture, because for some reason, the objects will change colour instead of becoming more translucent (or other weird effects)
    Then when it's imported, set the it to be translucent and you'll get a perfect result...
