    Now, with this in mind, I propose that we return the Gib to Infiltration, for those special moments, like recieving more than 300 damage in one second, or extremely long falls. It never makes sense to eat a whole 40mm and just flop down, or to, as Beerbarron did, unload that much ammo into a person and not have anything happen. Who's with me!

    I say no to 'gibs'. Shrapnel will tear you up pretty good, but not enough to have organized low-poly blobs bouncing around.

    And I would say no to realistic 'gibs' too. What is the point? You will have ugly lumps lying around the maps until the round ends.

    Keg, you are right! we need the old-cool GIBs!
    it isnt that realistic, but its more than no having GIBs.

    No .....
    It wouldn't add anything, and anyway, just SAVE YOUR AMMO !!!! Don't empty a clip in a single person. :p Brutes. :p
    I like the way it's done now.

    direct grenade hits NEED the absolute splatter effect!!
    it sounds kind of morbid but without the mess it is no fun the bodies should have at least a bloody skin. and a blood lake around shot players would noz be unrealistic.........:instagib:

    This is one of those borderline realistic things... on one hand you got the ppl who when someone gets shot the person should explode into pieces... and then you have my opinion which is if you get hit by a 40mm grenade theres going to be mroe pieces than whole. I think that if you get shot no matter how many times you should not be gibbed. I mean you know how much ammo it would take to splatter someone? Too much work... however one direct hit by a 40mm oir a close explosion by a hand nade should definately shred you. I think it would be more fun to have them then not as long as you dont gib by either:
    a: falling long distances
    b: getting shot alot
    Then gibs would be a beautiful compromise. Besides if I remember right the team said they were going to bring in gibs eventually again? :confused:

    i prefer it the way it is now. and i realy don't think you will get smashed into pieces if you hit the ground after falling long distances. ok, you would be pretty much messed up, but you won't turn into some pieces of flesh bouncing around.

    SoF has the best gibs, its the thing I like most about that game but I think it would be out of place in INF.

    from what I understand, the basic 40mm isn't enough to "gib" someone.

    No, it isn't. I'm surprised there is so much support for gibs.
    Gibs do not happen in real life. As close as you are going to get is the loss of limbs, and even that would be out of place until there is a new damage model.
     
  12. Getting gibbed from falling down?! I dont have much falling experience, but wouldnt it requieere a pretty HUUUGE drop to make a human go into pieces?;)
    And form what I understand, you can sit on a nade when it detonates and you still wouldnt go into pieces...
    But maybe jumping of the cliff in Cuban dawn while getting hit 3 times with 40mms would result in a gib, maybe...

    ANd I think the RC50 does 3000 in damage, making it the most powerful gun in Inf, and that in RL can shoot somebodys leg off, if theyre (un)lucky..

    That is false. Hydrostatic shock may destroy any future use of the limb, but the .50 BMG round is not capable of "shooting a limb off".

    I am against gibs, but I do want something other than when you jump off a cliff, do that fall animation, hit the ground, and then grab your chest and flop to the ground.

    realistic blood effects and then the loss of limbs would be cool, or maybe some sort of system where the actual skin of the player gets red marks/blotches on it.

    You could have several different corpse models, each with a different skin showing how shot up they were when they eventually hit the bucket.

    I would say no to full out 'gib'. But it would be nice, if you shot someone in the head with a Robar, M3S90 or M2HB, to see small chunks of skull fly out.

    From what veterans have told me, occasionally shrapnel and other blast fragments would blow off pieces of someone's body. However, I remember one story, that a guy flopped down on a satchel charge (think a grenade powerful enough to destroy a tank), covered up with it, and took the full force of the blast. He was dead. His body was pretty fucked up. But no gib.

    No gibs until it can look less cheesy.

    I never liked the "gib" thing that's been a part of FPS's since Duke Nukem and ROTT... I always thought it looked completely implausible and corny... now DOOM, however, had that "man being horribly torn to little bloody pieces" thing right...

    Anyways...

    Does anyone else find it disturbing when a corpse in INF is shot or fragged for a considerable amount of damage and it suddenly disappears?

    Do I find it disturbing?

    Very much so.


    I agree also on the point about DOOM's corpses. They look like packs of bloody hamburger meat, just perfect for that gibbed, but not quite gibbed feeling :D.
