Jetpack concept, never completed

Post by EvilGrins » Mon Nov 16, 2020 8:57 am

When I get bored I go skimming through old posts. All forums have a tonnage of old stuff, some never commented on, that're really good.

This I liked · http://gauntletwarriors.com/Forums/view ... f=54&t=440

But I'd forgotten about it until recently, and when I asked it turns out it never got developed further... though he says he may come back to it someday.

There are jetpacks with a couple of mods but I can't remember which - I'm not sure they work outside of those mods though - not a lot of help.

One accessible way of flying without vehicles is using the Q3 Weps Flight pickup - this can be modified locally to last as long as one wants.

I played around with trying to get a Jetpack working in UT several years ago.
The main problem is UT99 does not have the UT2004 commands: AttachToBone and DetachFromBone.
With UT2004 it is very easy to attach a jetpack or anything to a players skin, take the SantaHat for instance, same principle.
With UT99 you have to make a complete skin, and you also have to make a new animation to fly straight as currently if you use the Fly command you swim through the air which is dumb.
Hence I dumped the idea.
