    Can we have them? :) Not sure how it'd be handled though, since there's no link-gun to fire at them and no non-enterable parts of the vehicle to "use", but it'd be great to finally be able to fix that Harbie after it spun out for the ninth time.

    I dont think you need to worry about vehicle damage due to bad vehicle handling and hitting mountains and such. The vehicles are going to handle very well in this version.

    I personally dont like repairable vehicles anyway. Make it risky for the two arty carriers to haul ass back to base on a smoking raptor ;)

    Well, you'd have to get out to repair it, where a Ranger could snipe your ass anyway. Point about the lack of bad handling though.

    I hope that the target for the mod is to be as close to the original as possible.

    With the creative juices already flowing within the community, I am 100% we will see many many tweaks and twists for UTXMP 'after' the release.

    But to nail the original feel and play of the U2XMP with the UT2004 gameplay will be an achievement that should put smiles on the faces of all the ut community.

    Back when mapping for u2xmp I had tried to make a large platform for a vehicle to drive up on and repair damage. It didn't work though. I think something like repairable vehicles could be done in certain maps, but would possibly need more coding. Maybe something like Vehicle Powerstations?

    No repairing, they must blow up. People must die.

    Since the vehicles are based on the ONS vehicle code, they will be repairable... there just won't be any link gun to repair it with.

    A repair platform sounds nice.
    Something like Link guns or TFC spanners would seem silly to me, but a repair platform would fit XMP.
    Just alone the fact that it would help distinguish from UT would be a positive.
    Don't get me wrong, I really like UT, but I want XMP to be XMP, and perhaps a bit more.
    With pads it'd be up to the mapper as to whether or not they're there anyway.
    All the above is my opinion of course.

    Yeah, I'd prefer a platform to be honest. Maybe just if you drive the vehicle to a vehicle spawn point, that repairs it? Or only some? (bRepairPad for UTXMPVehicleFactory or whatever class you're using)

    I like the idea of the repair platform, however ... to ensure that someone doesn't just park the jug on it ... I would recommend that you have to have someone hack a panel persistantly for the vehicle to be repaired. That way you can snipe the guy at the panel and stop the vehicles healing.

    Good point

    In BF1942 you used to get people that would sit in the other teams repair hanger in a tank shooting anyone that went near them. Because the tank was always being repaired it was one hell of a job getting rid of someone. In the end they changed it so you could only get repairs in your own base.

    I think the idea of a guy at the panel is a lot better for XMP

    The repair pad is a good idea, although i still think engies should be able to repair things.

    One of the dumb things in xmp was the vehicles getting all fuked up then having to blow them up and wait for it to spawn, when you should be able to heal it instead.

    All you need to do is make it work like the health/ammo/shield stations do currently. Once it powers you back up, it turns off. You need to move away then move back on it to retrigger it to get it working again.
