Well I attempted last night in my spare time to create a Frog Tank which would jump when the main weapons are fired.

My plan was to use a projectile which dropped down underneath the tank and then was timed perfectly to explode, however all I could get the explosion to do is nudge the tank backwards a little :/

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas...

I though there was a jump mod that did that.

Anyway, just create a projectile that instantly autodetonates (time to live == 0.001) with no damage and has a crater depth of -0.5. The crater (or rather 'hump') will kick the tank up in the air.

Definately doable :)

Take a look at these mods:

Ahhh, terrain, of course XD, excuse me Im rather rusty having not modded for sooo long T_T

I had considered a similar idea with an expanding solid mesh that would be invisble and dissapear afterwards, Ill get right on it :D
