Ideas for a better game

Unread postby theoharald » Fri Apr 22, 2016 9:43 am

(If any moder sees this)
Jumping is a bit slow just like on the moon. Is it possible to make jumping (and moving) faster - like twice the speed for all the animations?
It'd be cool to
-remove the cooldown on attacks
-add ladders to the game (not necessary with a climbing animation); also, add cameras, which the player can place on his creation while in building mode and switch to the said camera using a key on the keyboard (such as in Besiege, if this helps)
-be able to keymap
-be able to play as a vehicle (1)
-be able to switch characters while playing via an ability (kind of like mind controlling another placed character (such as in Charlotte, if this helps) (2)
-be able to attack with the weapons from handheld objects, without throwing them
-have flat maps
-be able to paint creatures just like houses and vehicles (one part at a time)

Having (1) and (2) combined, that'd make driving vehicles possible, though 1 seems kind of impossible to accomplish. Maybe I have too low moding knowledge but I don't see how that's possible

Still, I wrote more ideas hoping that at least one of them is possible:)

I don't think I can really call myself a modder but I have some experience in the topic :)

I dunno... tho if I did make a mod like that I would probably use it to climb in trees :lol:

you mean the creature editor? it would be cool but I don't think it is possible. :/

Well, the mod itself doesn't work for me. How about you? Does it work?

has anyone ever made a mod that gives Creatures or Parts both sneak and Sprint abilities?

How can we we give all feet parts or simple every Creature ever made both sneak and Sprint abilities by default?

Not yet :3

By adding these 2 properties:

Code: Select all

<int32 name="modelCapabilityStealth">5</int32>
<int32 name="modelCapabilitySprint">5</int32>

to creatureeditortemplates!creaturefoottemplate.prop.xml (for all feet) or creatureeditortemplates!creaturefoottemplate.prop.xml!creaturerigblocktemplate.prop.xml (for every part ever). Does that answer your question?
