I have released a new weapon pack. It is currently in Beta testing, so if you could give me feedback (balance, issues, etc).

There are no new textures or meshes, so it can be used on a server. I need lag testing to know if I need to put any warnings such as remove ABC weapon before using on a server due to lag.

Anyway, on to the pack:

http://www.vorklift.com/treadmarks/temp/Fire_and_Chaos_Beta1.rar

The pack is designed to run without normal LDA weapons, so move the Weapons directory from your Entities location to your root TM folder to experience this mod as designed.

The pack contains the following weapons:
- Blaster: Short range rapid fire blaster gun
- Burn Laser: High powered turret mounted laser that leaves a patch of burning ground in its wake
- Chaos Turret: A superweapon that fires shadow-like blasts
- Dirt Shower: An explosive fountain of dirt
- Disk Launcher: A tricky mine
- Fireworks: A fireworks show to kill your foe
- Gravity Well: A superweapon that sucks enemy tanks in before blowing them up
- Heavy Laser: A continuous fire high damage laser gun
- Popcorn: Toast your foes in the popcorn cooker
- Seeker: High altitide launched missile of very high damage
- Side Missile: A side-mounted missile tube
- Zap Gun: A short range tracking fire bolt

Wow... that sounds nice. I don't know, but the Gravity Well description reminds me more of a Black Hole than a Gravity Well... but that's just me ^_^

RC, i put it up on my server so you can see about lag issues.
caldera is not the best map to test on :)

for local single games, the mods are pretty good.
though the side missiles are just plain annoying, but in a good way.

my server is also not the beefiest one around.
just a PIII 500MHz

well let me know if you want to make adjustments or try things out.

toodles,
harmless

Having played around with it, there is one typo, two weapons with too high weight, and I'd like to redesign the Swarm weapon.

Will work on it next weekend and get a new version posted!

Popcorn and Zap Gun.

Popcorn is too high since it causes server lag.

Zap Gun is too high because I kept finding unfinished guns lying around :) - and it is a cheap weapon, since it doesn't take much skill.
