One thing in particular I just thought of: On another online game I play, I see there are construction challenge servers. They feature maps in which teamwork is required to build your way to the end of the map. I can easily see this as possible for UT with a mod like yours. I hope this reaches completion!

I'd pick this back up if someone had an answer to the cylinder collision problem. If that could be solved it's an easy matter to script up a builder gun.
I just wish I had enough time to fully commit to this. Then again, I NEVER manage to fully commit to any project. I've lately been playing more UT, and I remembered how much I wanted a mod like this to be available, which is what re-sparked my interest and led me to check this thread.
Right now, this "mod" is currently just a small library that lets you have non-cylindrical collision. Been there, done that, it works! I love working out tough challenges like these, but I'm very weak in making a complete mod that people want. I am still considering to release the source code/library so that others that have the vision could created mods based off it if they want, although I don't know how many developers are still out there looking for something like this.
If I could get a couple people interested in making a mod like this, maybe like a team, I would definitely start working on this ASAP.

I remember the problem of not being able to assign brush models to actors in runtime (the game would crash immediately), and that was pretty much the only thing left to iron out to start some real development on those.
I guess in the end ,If all goes as planed ,Make a script similar to the commands we use for orders in CTF,JB,etc with all the summon commands to be used .
Kinda like if I want a bot to guard the flag or free for all .
I wonder if you can summon other players in game .
Frag nations or clan match with referrers.
If there is a infraction in the rules, like a guy keeps revenge killing you ,summon player name Referee1 instead of spectating in behind view.They could be in game a spectator and summons to view in game and in person .
Just a few ideas for future use .
I might consider it's implementation, as it's a great idea, being able to build a bunker from thin air. I'll ask you via PM
The way it bobs its head lefty-righty? It's just cracking it's neck so it can get a better grip on you with its jaws.

I am using movers. These movers require a brush pre-made for collision, and so unfortunately one can't take meshes and collisionize them easily. A brush that approximates the mesh will have to be made.scarble wrote:Are you using BSP to make the collisions?
Cos if not.. that would mean no more collisionising non-cylindrical meshes with many block-all actors
This is 100% UScript. Assigning brush models to actors works perfectly fine. It only crashed when the brush was visible and occluding errors happened, but hiding the brush and using a mesh instead has worked fine.Feralidragon wrote:So, you did go native on this or did you keep successfully on UScript alone?
That would actually be a fantastic way to test this idea. I am eager to help you implement this if you want.KeeperUTX wrote:Maybe this could be implemented in my soon-to-be SP mappack??
The brushes have to made in ued first, since there isn't a way to create brushes dynamically within UScript. Although, taking a few cubes, triangles, cylinders, etc. you can make very complicated constructions.Rakiayn wrote:are the blocks made in ued first before you can spawn them?
