Wanted to get the thread back on the base track. If anyone wishes to put something into the mod pack - tank (not a remake of stock tank), weapon (can be variation of stock but with different name, texturing and functionality or new/existing modded weapon), or a map then please provide information here and we can get together on how to get it to me for inclusion.
I am working toward putting this out to LDA by the end of this month or sometime in February depending on what has to be done to get it all together. I am aiming at providing high quality mods that you and new users will appreciate as additions to the stock TM environment (or any modded environment you wish to setup). You have created some terrific things out there that can be appreciated by all and we want to show new users that TM is still moving forward with NEW things still becoming available while we all wait on the next version of TM (I know I want to see a new version) so put your best foot forward and let's put out a mod pack that we can all appreciate and be proud of for ourselves, LDA, and all new users.

Currently I have about 21 maps that will go into the new mod pack. This includes maps in all three categories (CTF, DM, and Race). I have a commitment for a couple of weapons and discussions about some tanks. We need a few more weapons and tanks that will be new/not stock redo's. If anyone has favorites of some of the tanks that have already been made by others or yourself then let me know. We could include some of the uncompleted LDA tanks that have been completed by others with Jim's permission, but that is a requirement if that is to be an option. Of course they would have to be completed and textured to make them final quality tanks if we want them in the mod pack. Let me know your thoughts.

I'm hoping to include the crowd pleasing flamer.
(Ala a slightly modified HQ Flamer, in the way that it is fully animated)

So fixing a stock tank so that it shoots like it looks doesn't count.

Anything that is not just a rehash of something stock in LDA that is currently used like a couple of new tanks would be nice TBI. Let me know how to get them or just send them to my email - hopefully not too large. Oh yes A2597 and I spoke about the modified flamer - it will be different than LDA's standard flamer, but based on it with high res graphics as some I am sure remember. It should be a nice addition.

Sorry Vor if I put a kink in what you were doing. Like I said perhaps some of the unfinished tanks in TM could be completed with Jim's OK and added into the mod pack. Nice texturing and anything else that might be needed. Of course Jim may have specific plans for those unfinished models so it would be up to him.

TBI if you cannot send the file via mail for whatever reason catch me on ICQ and you can send it that way. The email I got did not have an attachment.

GBV - I only wanted to let you know that we cannot replace stock TM items. Like I said perhaps something with the unfinished tanks - skins for some of them with the entity tweaks required to make them show up. With Jim's OK that might be a doable thing. The primary point is that the mod pack is additions to TM not remaking stock TM to look different. If you do the tank skins and post them I am sure people will use them. I would like to see them myself, I just cannot put them in the mod pack at the current time.

GBV - since tank skins are basically ent file overrides to the stock skins they are not truly modifications of the stock objects (mainly the tank). We could add in some tank skins for the stock tanks I think. As long as we do not change the tanks in any way. The original tanks skin changes for a few tanks came from JVortex. Very cool and they do not effect a player who has stock skins only when you play together since they see the stock skins and only those with the skins installed see the altered skins.

Like I said in the other thread any of my weapons, tanks, or maps can be included.

Well, all I really have is the ZE141k tank and its skin pack tank-wise. But I have a few maps and plenty of weapons. }B>

Testing the mods and they are very nice. Of course the flamer gives all the HQ functionality of the original HQ mod. The grenades are a blast to use, but stay back a little when using them or you might get burnt yourself. Good job so far A2597. Looking forward to the final product.

A2597 is providing some variety in the grenade launcher. Looking forward to finishing the modpack so everyone can enjoy them.
