Author Topic: Jets should be changeable  (Read 3411 times)

A hover button you say? using jets at right speed to hover perfectly. :O

A hover button would be handy to have. But if it's a toggle thing make sure there's a notifier that tells you when you're hovering. Just like how it tells you when you're trying to plant a brick in the air, et cetera.

The "freeze in the air" button is the absolute worst thing about RTB period.  Not because it's a bad feature but simply because there is a button on the keyboard that makes it impossible for you to move with no feed back as to wtf just happened.  The uninitiated press that button accidentally then have no idea why they can't move or how to fix it. 

Why not a hover funktion that make your minifig stay in one spot and move a little upp and down to make it realistic? :D And you leave that state by pressing the jet button.

Sounds like a great client-side mod.  Just schedule the jet events at the right interval. 

That actually sounds easy enough for ME to do. But I don't know how similar scripting is between RTB/Vanilla and RBL.

The jumpjet combonation Ephialtes said is an easy way to combat the slow jets.

Leet Tribes skills is the other way to combat it. 
skiing FTW.

Torque's schedule timing variance may cause it to screw up. The timing for 1000ms can deviate a lot...

Jet COLORS need to be changeable via menu.

The reason there's an option for these sort of things is because it keeps everyone happy, what about a local setting for jets?
With local jets anyone can have thier jets as they like and then a fixed jet speed for Mini-Games.
This is a magical idea! But is it possible?

Have you tried in Retail Blockland or TGE 1.5?  There was a bug in the timing class that made it inaccurate.

This would be cool. Reminds of that game, Soldat.

I might be joining the retailers around March 5th-16th. =D
