OK, I'm re-doing some stuff for the HQ Pack, most of whats planned I'm keeping secret, so it'll be a surprise when you get to play with it.

however some other things I would like some feedback on...

first off... The tank gibs. Do you like them? Keep them, change them, lose them? I WANTED tank specific, but that isn't possible, so...oh well..

ok....I guess thats my only real question, any suggestions? Post some effects you want to see, changes you would like, etc. Bare in mind that the ONLY thing I want to change is VISUAL stuff, no real modifications to gameplay. (Last time all I did was fix the ramdrill and add tank gibs, and I'm not 100% on the gibs)

So...let me have it!

Oh, wait, no. If tanks were ment to fly they would have been born with little bags of salted peanuts.

I think its perfect as it is ! The gibs are ACe the flames are ace, the smoke is ace, the sky's are ace - its all ACE !

The only gripe i do have is how dull some of the stock weapons look - maybe they could do with a makeover (projectiles btw not the bolt ons)...

heh...there are some things that are just NOT "ace". The flamer is good...the pea shooter is good, but some of the others? Nah...not there yet.

in this case, it's a piece of a tank that goes flying and sits on the ground after you blow up a tank.

you mean you haven't tried my HQ Pack?? Shame shame...

Actually, I got it as soon as I reinstalled TM after replacing my fried HD. And those peices of tank are one of my favorite parts. I would have more input here except that since I installed the mod without first playing stock, I have nothing to compare it with, and therefore can't even see some of the things that have been modded.

I put some thought into it:

Any way of making a more realistic tank explosion than just the simple blue shere? maybe even attaching some damage to that explosion or making the flying shrapnel damaging? or would that be too much gameplay modification?

What about moving treads? or changes to the tank model deformation? maybe not so much psychedellic warping and more texture modification (but not No warping of course ) weapon specific damage to tanks?

Were the terrain texture resolutions boosted? I think that alone would probably make the biggest difference of all.

I can boost the terrain detail...and I did change the tank explo last time...and yes, it hurt.

changing the deform mesh...can't be done ent side. same for moving treads...thats in LDA's hands.

umm...I didn't...yes, the blue sphere is still there, but you SHOULD still have a big explosion and tank gibs flying....

I see it now. I had been playing multiplayer. some of the things are supposed to revert back to their origonal forms for multiplayer right?

What about something a little more fancy for the projectile/beam/thing for the mass driver?

hmm....didn't think to change the mass driver. I'll look into it. Though I do kinda like it's effect now.
