    Hey dire,
    if you want to use the two lasers I created for panthermod in the laser tourny mod, you are welcomed to.
    The phaser with custom sound
    Laser gatling with custom sound (the laser fire weapon is referenced in this weapon so I included the code for both)

    Cool.. thanks Panther! I’ll look those over and pop them into the mod.

    Was thinking of a BFG type laser. slower moving, very wide energy
    wave.. the Laser-Burst gave me the idea.

    Pop into the server and test whats there, tell me what needs to
    be balanced.

    Nope. can’t use Skype.. pc overloaded trying to make the first dial..
    Teamspeak works fine for me, but with the crowd at my house, it’s not
    feasable..

    Since i’m already connected to IRC all day using Miranda, I’ll keep using it.
    however, the one i’m connected to isn’t the quake servers.

    If he’s the one who just swears and then floods the logs with lines of the a

    on all 3…

    correcting myself..
    No Blachard, this perticular spamming person was not you after all.

    I’ve seen him log into a few other servers using the alias Fire.

    So you’re off the hook, ..This time…

    Will you realease a copy on the sourceforge mod project? ❓

    Possibly..
    But since it’s small and easy to grab from the server, just connect with
    any ‘Recent’ version of Scorched and you’ll have it.

    I keep getting folks now and then trying to connect using older Scorched..
    Why?!?
    The full current version is free and openly available to the web. if they
    can connect to me, they can surely connect to here and update..

    just wanted to let you all know the mod is nearly completed.
    and from that point wont be changing as it feels like everything
    is evenly weighed and getting close to 3 megs in size.

    It’s a truely fun/challenging mod & everyone gets = chances to win
    given the time & practice to get into the feel of primative weapons 8)

    Lastly Thanks Thrax for Hosting & adding stats for us all to enjoy 😀

    Complete? Never!
    Yup. Added stats, and what happens! Vihor snatches first place already..
    Better get in there everyone, while you have a chance of out-ranking him.

    Not only pro’s, but great for beginners too. Since you get to stay alive
    more than one shot per round… time to learn aim before getting mauled.

    yeah, its tough love sometimes, but you did not really answer the question you quoted, willis
    Perhaps it should be rephrased:
    “is there a way to increase the noob friendliness at the servers?”

    Sure.. Throw rocks at eachother.

    Shock made his pebble idea into a new whole theme.
    Those who have a little skill, (and don’t have to rely on Funky’s or DH’s to

    I have yet to look at the xml and have yet to work on modding but i might have to look as well. What we all need a noob mod. 😉

    Pop onto the server anytime, it’s reopened again.

    I did the altered Crazy-Ivan, used a photon spray instead of nuke.
    Clipped in the Plasma-Blast, and am looking at a few ideas on a weak
    shot-gun laser.

    let me know what you think, and keep the ideas coming.

    I played for a hour or two last night. Realy though it was fun. I must be realy bad because I didn’t feel it was very easy at all! Oh this is my first post blah blah hello. I think if nothing else this is a realy fun way to get better with lasers in general. Then bended lasers are a realy awesome idea, being able to shoot people below you is pretty awesome (and pretty tough). I spend at least as many shots trying to hit someone (on the up/down plane) as I do getting distance right with regular projectiles. Acualy a bit more for the long shots. If I’m allowed to make suggestions in my first post ever it would be some sort of shotgun laser spread type things (that would be pretty expensive).

    Great, I love getting feedback.
    A Scatter-shot laser. hmm, has potential.
    i’ve also had request of a version of Crazy-Ivan using a small Sat-Strike.
    And if it’s an energy-based, I was wondering if the Plasma-Blast had backing.

    Laser’s aren’t hard to use, but they do take practice to use them ‘Well’..

    I’m serious

    For reason beyond our control, the current lasermod is on standby..

    if you wish to view it’s current incarnation, it’s open now and then for
    viewing and tweaks suggestions.

    If any admin wishes to include it. pop in, or leave me a note.

    I accept your appology, but please note, this was just an idea, and with a lot of help from some friends it is actually somewhat playable, yes it does have some problems, but I am just barely learning how to manipulate the code, Bobirov and Brain Damage created these weapons, I dont even know how yet, do you? but am trying to slowly learn.
    -clip-
    if someone else feels like messing with it feel free, I dont right now, instead I would rather start learning the code and how to use it, and maybe even come up with something else, who knows!

    You know I’ve always had a thing for lasers.
    Already on it.. pop onto the laser-test serv if it’s up, I’ll do a few little
    tweaks. Anyone who has critisism(good or bad), can direct them towards
    me instead..

    Smoke weapon…

    BD tested one a while back in his mod, called it ninja-smoke.
    it created a 2-3 round slowly dissapating cloud that obscured vision.

    it looked cool, was fun to target thru, and was a great way to burn a hole
    in any video-card. It took a lot of processing and display power for it to
    look best.

    i’m sure, like any other cloud effect, it could be sped up and adapted to
    an exaust plume. while my pc explodes trying to view it..

    Does anyone remember if the free market ever applied to defense items in scorched earth? I think it would be great if it applied on the servers.

    I just checked to be sure.. and Yes, the free market applied to all
    weapons and defence items.

    Putting the defence items to free market would also encourage other types
    of shields to be used. If the force started becoming the most expensive..

    On my serv, I started with most of my prices pretty low. Then used free
    market to balance out ‘price VS popularity’..
