Weapon Pickup

Post by Ama » Thu Sep 04, 2014 12:16 am

I had this idea while playing that sometimes you dont know which weapon you have picked up couse you are frozen

and you never know if you friend has the weapon or not and he cant tell you becouse he is frozen

i made a quick concept im not good with graphics so it looks bad but maybe someone could use this idea

Tell me if you like this or not in the poll :D

Here when you have no weapons
First.png
Here you picked up a Grenade

And here with all weapons

Hey, I don't like too much useless things on the screen when I'm playing.
I would put small images of weapons/bullets they use if I have the weapon.
And just nothing if I don't have.

It really shouldn't take too much space. What about a new command? Maybe /weapons or so

I edited my post but I will write a new one ^^

Or show ammo only when I hold the weapon and I'm freezed. Then you can see
1. what weapons you picked up
2. what weapon you currently hold so you can start hammerfly or laser someone. And you can switch weapons by scrolling because you see what weapon you choose.
I mean you can see greandes under shields when you have grenade in the hand, bullets for shotgun, nothing for hammer.

Great idea! Especially for ddrace, but would be useful for ctf and other mods too. So maybe better to make it switchable:
1) Show all owned weapons.
2) Show only current weapon (as Lady Saavik described).
3) Show nothing?

Idea: When you switching, Weapon(img) could be shown on top (or where you want) for 2 seconds ;P :D Like in another games (when you pick up items or switch weapon)

Hm .. U could just hammer your partner and you he shoot. So u can see if he have got the weapon or not.
Also he can use the numbers 1,2,3,4,5 and if he press 4 and tee isn't switching he has no rocket.
That are 2 ways I do it atm

what about removing armor bar while client is connected to a ddrace server. Its senseless IMHO. maybe optional.

BTW I guess gun bar is a good idea

sometimes it isn't possible to be hammered.
And the trick with numbers is just working if sound is enabled. That means not for me.
