Introducing: A brand new flashlight that actually works! Actually shines some light on the situation!






This extremely handy flashlight is conveniently available whenever you want it just by pressing your light key. Even comes with a model in your left hand and a toggle sound! No more constantly recreated projectiles, lights or explosions; no more flickering. This flashlight smoothly glides from one point to another.

Scripting by Port, model by Jack Noir, sounds by Valve Software.

Oh, those?


...why not an item?

Because this is meant as a replacement for the light that is available all the time.

no it shouldn't.
You should be able to use your flashlight in conjunction with your weapons.

What would a good way of doing this be?

Definitely possible, I should try that sometime.

There's already a flashlight item like that available on the forums. Just dive back in the add-ons section a bit, it's there. It functions exactly like this one, too, but you have to click and hold to keep it on.

You can do this with Chrono's "SetLight" events. They allow you to control whether or not a player is allowed to use their light. Don't confuse it with his "changelight" event, though.

A few suggestions:
-Toggleable player-source light? Maybe it'd be nice if we could toggle whether or not players emit a light around themselves in addition to the flashlight 'beam' itself, since right now players always emit a light along with the beam.
-Glow FX on the flashlight lens? Might make it seem a bit more obvious where players are when using the flashlight.

Err, why would that work? This almost completely overwrites the normal light function.

Actually, due to a bug with the TGE engine, the light around the flashlight is only visible to the host. Should probably state that somewhere - er, well no, since it's not really advertised as a feature anyway.

I'll see what I can do about it.
