Ok I've finnished my first half-decent weapon- The Drones -If anyone's interested I can send it to you so you can tell me what you think. Unfortunately I haven't got a website so I can't put it there - but if you want to feel free! (As long as I get the credit for my hard work) :lol:

It has been ran through entegrety so there are no problems there-if there are any problems it's because of how I packaged it in WINRAR - ENTegrety wouldn't do it for me so I figured it out for myself.

You can ask either me or RandomChaos (or both) to host it for you.

one small quibble. (before anyone jumps, I know the rar format can pkg things smaller than zip) the usual prefered archive format is a zip file since durn near anyone can extract the mods.

Well everything I've downloaded for TM has been in RAR.

Anyway a small delay- Can you tell me how to change what it says when someone gets killed with the weapon ( eg. AI-UGLY killed AI-STUPID with a neuclear blast)? :roll:

That would be in the projectile ent file (i.e. the nuke's projectile file has the words 'nuclear blast').

The rest of the sentence ( i.e. "%s fragged player %s with a %s") is in the local/english/lines.cfg file. %s is where the game sticks a string (i.e. player name). %d (which there are very few) is where the game sticks in a number. The order in which %s and %d appear in the line cannot be changed. for example

player %s has %d frags

you cannot change this to:

%d frags for player %s

The game would crash. BUt you can do:

%s: Frags:%d

THat would be OK.

Your weapon looks great. I am no longer in Panic Mode at this time because a breach has been fixed.

I don't use quotes very often, because they are used to spoof cheats/spams in the LDA Challenge Thread.

OK I have another weapon - may i send that too?

My 2nd weapon- Extracted from the readme whick I wrote -
*This weapon has been made-by me of course-to be rather rare-for 2 reasons.
1-With 1000's of missiles flying everywhere your computer would probably blow up.
2-It is rather stong
-The Mk.2 Cluster Missile Pod fires long range explosive bombs at any ugly thing that crosses your liking to blow up.
-It looks good on steel tanks
-Liquid tanks seem to go an odd shade of grey when carrying it - all part of the plan of course.
Fun ways to play with this weapon:
-Fire from a long range at an enemy tank
-fire directly upwards-the long lifespan means they have to hit
ground eventualy so run away before they come back down
-great for use against tanks behind in a race as it completely
destroys the terrain
-Blast things at close range - theres no escape.

*you may want to put this weapon more comon sow that you can have a
look at it but I recomend changing it back afterwards as it is quite
powerful*-*

I LIKE IT!!! Gona make one with nukes I think!!! :twisted:
