Well, ive downloaded the map called
Wm_combo and i thought it was awesome! ended up giving it a 10
especially that man cannon! had alot of fun with it, just hated the long walk back to it...

and that got me thinking...
what if they made another map, except they used more then one man cannon?
so i was just wondering if SPARTAN04/WMClan (creators of wm_combo)
are ever gonna make a map with a bunch of man cannons
if so let me know!

I'd rather go without than take what you'd bring.

Lol, i actually talked about that to E3pO when we were last minute testing xD

We actually probably will, the only thing is the mancannons have found out to not work after about 4 people join a server :/


Why don't the scripts work? Isn't it a trigger volume that checks to see if any player is in there, and if so, automatically creates the effect? I don't see why that would stop working.

Also, it seems to be more random if that's the case. It happened to me with only two players in the server.

Really? That's a weird way of going about it, in my opinion. The only reason I would create intervals between the explosions is so that if you get stuck, you can get out with a long enough delay.

Although there's nothing in this script that would make it randomly stop working. It must be something besides the script, because supposedly it would be constantly sleeping until a player arrives in the trigger volume, no matter what the interval is. That's just very strange.

Don't know if this will help, but if I were to do it, I would use booleans to keep track of whether a player has been sent out or not, and I would also create the needed explosions instantly:

(global boolean in_boom 0)
(global boolean in_boom2 0)

(script continuous mancannons
(if
(and
(= in_boom 0)
(volume_test_objects boom (players))
)
(begin
(set in_boom 1)
(effect_new "mancannon\mancannon" "boom")
)
(if
(and
(= in_boom 1)
(= (volume_test_objects boom (players)) 0)
)
(set in_boom 0)
)
)

(if
(and
(= in_boom2 0)
(volume_test_objects boom2 (players))
)
(begin
(set in_boom2 1)
(effect_new "mancannon\mancannon" "boom2")
)
(if
(and
(= in_boom2 1)
(= (volume_test_objects boom2 (players)) 0)
)
(set in_boom2 0)
)
)
)


If one explosion isn't enough force, then I would just adjust the force in the tags. If players keep getting stuck, I would just make sure that the teleporter exit is sufficiently in front of the cutscene flag that creates the effect. This script would work by allowing only one explosion at a time, and not allowing any more explosions until all players exit the man cannon (Which should be nearly instant since it's a one-by-one setup anyways.)

That's just how I would have done it.

stfu noob... the map is awesome! :P i found it fun... it doesn't feel too large, but its not small (obviously), its got plenty of stuff to do on it as well... you can actually play the gametype, or walk around and find stuff to do.. theres secrets and stuff to keep you entertained.. good array of weapons and vehicles, I haven't found anything noobish on it, (yet), and I don't think I will.

Because you come in and make a random insulting post, if you think its a "100% nub map" explain how he can make it better or what is wrong with it.

I agree with Kid. This is what our community has called a "nub" map. How does a map with so many bsp's tossed together expect to have an ending result of good gameplay? How long does it take to cover the whole map. Gameplay wise, I can't think of a way this would be good. And you say there are revolving bipeds. Now how does that make it fair when people have different bipeds. Gameplay wise I would say it's terrible. Shut up about what Kid said because of the past you said this to his maps. :/

A rare sight, indeed.

No, you are all 'nubs.' The point of this map was just a fun map, with secrets to find. Oh, and wasn't a main point also random bipeds/weapons as well as mancannons that sync (with 4 or less players)? Why do you insist gameplay is everything? I don't exactly care if it's 'rips' because it has some good weapons, and is a fun thing to do with your friends. Especially with 04 leading people in the maze.

I downloaded the map and had fun. Reminds me of some of the crazy maps from 1-2 years ago.

He knows about his work. And what does that have to do with this. He never brought them up. But what about me. You going to try and say your map is not a "nub" map by linking to maps of mine?
