    I watched Blastage take out HWB with a beautiful off the roof roller drop the other night and it really made me miss the days of the roof shot, anybody else feeling the same way???

    if so, Let the Bastage know, and if you have never heard of roofmod,
    you are truly missing out…..
    Let the BASTAGE know! post your rantings here!

    The Roof, the Roof, the Roof is online!

    I updated it to run in v40.1 today – still lots of work to do, but it works, and is online!

    Cheers

    Bots are not smart enough to hit you using roof shots.

    I’m not sure offhand how the bot is set up – I’ll see if there’s something I can do to improve it a bit.

    Also, due to problems with people having difficulty connecting to both Roofmod and SH, I took them offline last night. I’ll look into it later today.

    I noticed the download was slow yesterday evening (around 4Kb/s).
    Lucky the mod is quite tiny 🙂

    Fun to play that again, awaiting more players for real roofage 🙂

    Roofmod and Scavenger are both back up – sorry for the delays.

    Thanks for the note on the download speed for roofmod – I had made an error setting that. I have now set it to the max (250k) – at times it will be significantly lower due to incredible bandwidth usage on the network.

    Also note: I may have to shut them down tomorrow (Nov 18) sometime between 09:00 and 12:00. There will be a power outage here, and I may have to shut a few things down to conserve backup power (it should be fine, however).

    Missing the roofmod. Can I help with whatever needs help with?

    Are you still against grav/velocity change?

    🙂

    Are you still against grav/velocity change?:)

    Now that you mention it, I have a beginning modder player on my
    servs that is interested in roofmod.

    He was considering using roofmod as a model for a new mod he was
    thinking of. But i was wondering if CBX is still planning to advance the
    mod, or would be willing to let someone else take a peek at it.

    You all know how i hate to see a good mod grow stale and forgotten, so if
    it were handed to someone with time and ideas, it could be brought back
    to life.

    Thanks for the support, guys. 🙂

    I still do plan on updating roofmod, but you know how that goes sometimes….

    Thrax: He is welcome to do whatever he wants with it. 🙂

    Indy: Let’s talk. 😉
    I’m about to head out the door – I’ll post back here later this evening. I really could use some help, and I think you’re the man for the job. 😀

    Edit: And yeah, I’m still against a gravity change… Regarding shot velocity: we might be able to work with that. 😉 (I’m thinking maybe have a way to increase power…. whether it be freebie batts, or more likely, some sort of powerup thing…)

    Is there a way to set a velocity change for just bots? The reason I keep bringing up a grav change or a velocity change for ALL weapons is that, and I’ve tried this, if the grav is real low, or if shot velocity is locked to 1000 or 1200 or something, it makes the bots shoot realy hard. What that in turn does is make the bot overshoot every shot, right into the roof, and sometimes (especialy with rollers) they acualy roof you. I have done some experimentation on making weapons work diffrently for diffrent tanks. If nothing else it might be worth making bot specific weapons that have locked high velocity and just not letting them buy normal weapons.

    I dont realy mean something like that to help players, although it might be worth trying to set it so a damaged player can still shoot the full 1000 power so there is no excuse but to roof. I just wish the bots would hit the roof, I hate not roofing even the AI, its still cheating 🙂

    And yeah, I’ll help in any way I can, lemme know what you need.

    The idea of bot-only weaps is intriguing… I’ve never really tried making bots use higher power, so I’ll trust you on that one.

    Having said that, I really can’t recall offhand if works for bots in v40.1…. I fixed something about that a while ago, but I can’t remember just what. 😛 (Rob remembers…. let us know ;))
    If nothing else, for v41 we could make weapons specifically for bots that have a in them.

    WRT helping with the roofmod – I’ll send you a PM.

    The Fellow interested in working with roofmod, is named Princey. He’s
    a lead player on my servers, so he’s seen most of the mods and thier
    differences.

    He tried making an account here, but it seems to have gotten stuch in
    the forum move.. it diddn’t send his validation note, and isn’t
    answering to the password he set.

    If someone could take a look at that, he could come here and talk
    about it himself.
