    Well, earlier today i dug out my old Nerf Arenablast CD and played a couple of games online (unfortunately creaming everyone) anmd i had a thought: what if someone converted this game to UT2k3 so there would be better everything, including online players?

    maybe if we could do this after the bulldog map pack? or later?

    here are the guns (some changes from the origionals) that i thought would be good (the pics are of the Nerf Arenablast versions, probably just for inspiration. the guns wouldnt really have to look exactly like them)

    Melee weapon: Dart Vacuum
    could be the shieldgun with a new skin?

    Primary fire: this blows darts away from the player when they get near
    Secondary fire: puts up a sheild in front of the player and absorbs any darts that hit it into the respective weapon (if you have he weapon that the darts come from)

    Default Weapon: Secretshot 2 & water balloons
    a small red pistol
    [​IMG]

    primary fire: shoots yellow nerf darts (no strongbad jokes please) from the pistol, doing puny damage
    secondary fire: the player character throws a water balloon that explodes on impact and causes splash damage (no pun intended)

    Weapon slot 2: Ballzooka
    a rifle like gun which has 6 barrels on the front
    [​IMG]

    primary fire: launches small foam balls which are affected by gravity which bounce around when they come to a stop, turn into 1 ammo pickups (yes! if you miss, you can pick up the balls and use them again!)
    secondary fire: launches biorifle like slime, which doesn't damage enemies, it just stops them from moving, they can still turn and shoot, but no jumping or running

    weapon slot 3: Wildfire Mk 2
    medium sized pistol with tons of barrels on the front which spin around minigun style when firing
    [​IMG]

    primary fire: fires glow in the dark green nerf darts at the same speed as the assault rifle from vanilla UT2k3, not very accurate
    secondary fire: sacrifice speed for accuracy, same as the primary fire, except fire rate is 75% of the primary fire, and is 3 times as acurate and a bit more painful too

    weapon slot 4: Scattershot LE (link edition)
    short rifle gun, with a large barrel on the front
    [​IMG]

    primary fire: hitscan weapon which creates a small explosion where it hits (not as small as alt minigun, but smaller than rocketlauncher explosion) and gives off 3 peices of flak
    secondary fire: the exact same as the link beam on the link rifle, except it can only damage enemies in non-team games, in team games, it only links to other players and each person linked on increases the explosion size by half the origional size

    weapon slot 5: Sideshot (not in the origional nerf, but better than the one in this slot)
    a long-ish rifle with 2 short black barrels projecting out of the front

    primary fire: launches an orange nerf dart out of both barrels
    secondary fire: this switches the gun from forward fire (where both darts fire forward) to side fire mode. the barrels of the gun both turn 90 degrees so they are facing opposite directions from each other. primary fire in this mode fires 1 dart on each side. pressing secondary again will swithc back

    weapon slot 6: Pulsator
    a wider rifle with 2 large barrels projecting from the front (uses same ammo as ballzooka)
    [​IMG]

    primary fire: shoots out 2 small balls of light which can cause a headshot
    secondary fire: pretty much the same as minigun alt fire

    weapon slot 7: Sidewinder 2
    think razorjack in nerf colours
    [​IMG]

    primary fire: shoots a yellow nerf disc that bounces off walls a lot (more that the razor launcher from UT1 did)
    secondary fire: launches a disc in remote control mode (like redeemer alt fire) that moves faster and is more controllable han the redeemer alt

    weapon slot 8: Quadstrike
    short weapon with the rockets sticking off the front
    [​IMG] <--- just add another rocket on there somewhere

    primary fire: launches a nerf rocket one at a time, after 4 are launched, more have to be put on the launcher
    secondary fire: launches all 4 rockets at the same time

    weapon slot 9: Hyperstrike
    probably just a lightning gun reskin, uses Quadstrike ammo
    [​IMG]

    primary fire: fires a red lighning bolt with extreme accuracy
    secondary fire: zooms in

    superweapon 1: cannon painter
    ion painter reskin :p

    primary fire: creates a blue laser that aims the ion cannon, but the ion cannon launches a large burst of instant kill nerf rockets down on the target area
    secondary fire: good old zoom function strikes back

    superweapon 2: Nerfdeemer
    pretty much a nerfification of the good old redeemer, fire styles and all



    scoring would be on a points system instead of frag system:
    25 points for a kill
    100 points for a headshot
    100 points for jumping on someones head
    when a player dies, he drops a point icon, 1000 points for if the player was first place, 750 pony icon for 2nd place, 500 points for 3rd place, and 50 point icon for 4th or below
    there could also be targets on levels designed to be played only with the mod, ranginf from 250 to 1000 points for finding and hitting one, and also targets that open doors and give points at the same time

    blood and gore would be cut out, and people would just de-res when they die. what this mod would do is basically make UT2k3 friendly for kids

    Get ChainsawMonkey in here and see if he could model some of those! :D
    I'd be up for coding it, but I don't like the idea of removing gore from the game. :B

    Yes, gore is good :) Even when it's purple and green.....:con:

    I'd probably be able to fit them in somewhere (in between the second batch of weapons I've got planned - all new models this time, got some very sweet ideas already - and the player model I'm messing around with that involves a totally new skeletal structure and therefore needs to be fully animated from scratch :eek: ).

    hmm, this reminded me of an old UT2 map that i was working on which was a conversion of a custom map for Nerf, but i deleted it before i joined fraghouse.

    i've started it again though, and a lot better than the origional version

    * slaps casc around a bit with a large trout *

    why does everyone think Nerf = Seizure colour levels? we're gonna try to keep the levels sane colours, i hope. the only bright level would be Amateur ][, a new version of the first level

    But it's Nerf.. for Unreal Tournament 2003!
    Perhaps there should be a poll for those in/not in favour of gore?
