Vehicle Setup

Postby coolduderyan07 » 11-07-2006 12:43 PM

Hey guys, I have a question. You know how we have JO, tanks in which you can turn the top cannon/turret, on an axis, and someone can drive while the Turret can spin. Well I'm working on this vehicle where its sort of like a Tank, but the driver controls the turret aswell. I know thats possible, because we can drive littlebirds and fire the miniguns at the same time. What My problem is, trying to rotate the turret and drive at the same time, like a tank where you can drive an operate the turret at the same time. Is there anyway say, while you are drivin north, turn the turret to the west and still continue driving north? Like, say the tanks in the BF games.

sry i dont think it can be done, the little bird has to turn to shot left and right and the cross hairs work more with the pitch and bob of the heli, unless the tank turret is facing 1 direction like north i dont think it can be done.

if hold right mouse click down welst driving any transport in the game you can freely look around but second you release the right mouse button the orietation of vehicle will turn to face direction you are looking

maybe this can be taken advantage of !

edit cleaned the typo's :p
youl only have somthing like a ! 270 degree rotation of the turret meaning blind spot

Sounds like an interesting idea but realy not very realistic unless the tank itself is modeled after some of the early WW1 tanks that didnt have a turret even that would be fudging realism a bit since there was a gunner in those as well.

Realy i dont see making such a powerfull and armored weapon that 1 person could fire And move would be good for balanced gameplay unless you modified the game to where if more than 3 players it requires 1 to fire and 1 to shoot. or if its for lan or password only with 2 people playing or everyone has a tank if more than 2.

Anyway just saying you may get some people upset about it because of the unbalanced bit.

Yea don't worry about balance, if I could figure this one out, it would open a whole bunch of doors.. When I get an idea, a barrage of more ideas pop into my head lol.
