Hey guys... just wondering if it's possible in CE to make the player have to equip grenades before throwing them, and/or use this way to have 3 different varieties of grenade? I also need a good tagger to help me out with a few things...


Frag grenade - add chain-spawned pistol and/or shotgun shots to simulate shrapnel
Smoke grenade - self-explanitory
Phosphorous grenade - nasty little bastards, go off with a big white flash and set anyone unfortunate enough to be nearby alight.Also still need some help with the MG-57 tags... :confused2:

Yea its possible. First, use a gun as your grenades. Setup the fireing animations to look like hes throwing them. You cant be holding a gun while doing this. And each gun would be a different grenade type. And youcan set weapon tags to not go by that 2 weapon rule.

Awesome. Anyone feel like helping with the tagging for me and FD04's project, then? :p I can sort of tag weapons, that's about it...

Why would you want to simulate shrapnel? Blast radius works just as good... and in real life, you'd never actually see the shrapnel until its in your leg or some shit...

yeah, u would make the three kinds of nades just like weapons, where they can be picked up and drops, but take a whole wepoan slot. U could also make them max out at one nade so u would be carrying only one nade at a time (or 2 if u used both wep slots), and strengh would have to be changed accordingly.

The problem with smoke nades is that most people will just turn off particles(or w/e the setting is called) and then the smoke will not show up on their screen, giving them an advantage over everyone else.

Yeah, I think this would be a better idea. Simulating every little piece of shrapnel would probably take a lot of resources, too...:eyesroll:

It sounds like a good idea.



Is it even possible to do a flash effect for the phosphorous nades? If so, how long were you planning on having it last, and how would you make it so it doesn't flash everyone in the map?
Yes it is. Le_Loup did a PC mod (not released yet) that has nades that do a flashing light effect like a flashbang.

Yes. I also remember that I couldn't see the flash effect on my 64mb integrated gfx, so I would spam you with them:lol:

I've been doing that for at least a year, too ^_^

I plan to add flashes and screen jolts to any sort of explosion, varying in strength and time. Phosphorous grenades will blind the player for maybe two or so seconds, then slowly fade back to normal... if they're too close they'll also catch fire and flinch. Frags, rockets, mines, and tank shells will cause a large screen jolt and a moderate flash, and possibly a red one if you stand too close and take damage - and if I can get it to work, a shellshock-like effect. Bullet hits, melee hits, any other sort of damage like that will cause a flinch and a red flash, depending on damage type, strength, etc.

flashes should be synched, its a direct reaction caused by a gernade exploding.

Oh snap.

I googled 'mk94 grenade' and found a page with pictures of every single grenade the British ever made (they made a Mk.94 too)... man there were some crazy looking things in there.

And you can expect to see this in a map when it's done :XD: Like, after Reaper finishes converting the model, UVW-ing it, and then after Dane skins it and me and whoever else tags it >_>
