Alternatively, a massive strong mcur with large drag would effectively freeze everything on the map in place.

Could use that to "pause" mp and stuff. Heh...

You'd also need to prevent players from firing weapons while paused, not so much because some weapons wouldn't be effected by the mcur but more because if players are in combat it'll mess them up and they might waste some expensive ammo. Also any weapons with long/infinite life spans could be built up while the game is "paused" so that when the game unpauses enough ammo goes off at once to one-shot a Recycler. (Mortars last indefinitely, right? I'm imagining 50 mortars all being launched at once because a jerk held down the fire button while paused would be bad). Also need to take service trucks and bays into account. Blink maybe? Never tried to blink through an mcur, wouldn't know about that. Morphing definitely, deploying/undeploying too, and hopping out of your tank (arguably harder to abuse, depends on the situation). Basically I'm imagining there'd be a lot of ways to abuse that kind of "pausing".

Still seems feasible though, would just need to account for every possible thing that could potentially be abused. Also helps if your friends aren't @$$holes and agree to be fair while the game is frozen.

LOL vearie. I don't understand why you'd want that to show everytime a player is killed hahaha. :)) :)) :)) But yeah, from the looks of it, it won't be done. But I just thought I'd ask :)

I'll put it on my "Impossible, TO DO" list, along with *working* drivable constructors (Yes, I know HOW to make those, just a pain in the ass to do)


That list used to have Tornados, Mas Grenade, and DayWreckers on it....

Used to.
