Hmm, about filters, I think it'd be a hard one. A workaround could be making actors emit a glow or something, but so far we can't make entire screens be colored differently. What say you, lua-wizards who read this thread? Can or can not it be done?

Also, it would be cool if the chakram/disk is in. Throw it, and we can adjust its trajectory by moving our aim. I think it can be done.
As for the pred spear, your B24 mod's got it covered.

By the way, I've finished AVP2 a few weeks ago, and the predator has these weapons:
-wristblades for melee
-shoulder cannon
-disk
-spear
-mine
while in AVP1, they also got:
-pred pistol (short range)
-speargun
-grappling cable
while in Predator: Concrete Jungle:
-glaive (melee)
-combistick (spear, melee)
-disk
-speargun
-shoulder cannon
-4 types of mines (plasma, pulse, sonic, incendiary)
-wristblade
-maul (melee)
There's also AVP: Extinction, which is a PS2 strategy game, they have these as unit choices:
-brawler (wristblade)
-hunter (shoulder cannon)
-disk master (disk)
-spear master (melee spear)
-stalker (speargun)
-military hydra (hydrashock cannon, which is like a cluster plasma missile launcher)
-military blazer (blazer cannon, which shoots a line of fiery laser)
-vanguard (heavy powerful melee with a scythe-like weapon, has molecular shield)
-predgun (basically a big, turret version of the shoulder cannon which can move. Can't shoot while moving.)

so yeah, we could include some weapons from all those games.

Hmm, maybe for the trophy system, maybe we could keep an inner counter in each Predator actor whenever they decapitate a Head attachable with their wristblade. Or just make their wristblade auto-decapitate people like that Axe Cop thingy Duh (or was it Geti) made, and 'store' the head in the inventory or something when it does decapitate someone. Trophy thingy is possible if we're just talking about headhunting. As for skinned bodies, eh, it'd probably end up as props in a mission or something.

That was my very best favourite of all times, gory, wild, mixed with humankind...
sadly it just poped out in PS2 and the maps were kind of simple ( a couple of squares with people running around)
I would PAY for playing the predator inside APB scenarios, full of innocents :P *drools*

Already done, Elektroboomer by cricket and harpoongun by numgun, they will be fairly credited.

I'm going to place my bet in 90% cocktail of melee and hunt weapons with 10% of tecnological devices,
such as the shoulder cannon, possibly the visual filters, the autodestruction bomb and perhaps some reinforcement caller,
the last one is relative because I have already made it with german parachuters and oh god, it was terrific to make it work ok.

About the trophies, not really sure how to implement it, perhaps one special scenario, in the inside of
your ship, you'll be able to visit your trophy room and take a look to all heads of actors you have killed... dunnow.

Well, I was just thinking, they got a way to 'upgrade' right? What if the way to 'upgrade' is to take x amount of heads? So for example, we have a Pred actor with an auto-decapitating wristblade lua'd in him (like Darkstorm's knife or punch). The same lua script would also keep track of how many 'heads' he's 'collected' (read: decapitated), and once x heads have been 'harvested', you can update your Pred to a better Pred.
It could work kinda like my Cordycs, only swap 'killing enemies with their seed gun' with 'taking heads', 'enough gold' with 'enough heads', and 'spawning or upgrading actors' with 'upgrading actors'.
Autodestruct bomb would probably work like this:
Pred dies -> inner lua makes an invisible mosrotating or whatnot which sticks to Pred's location -> mosrot has lua in it which makes an explosion after x seconds

Harvesting heads sounds pretty silly in cortex command, because in difference of another games corpses become static terrain
and hunting can take place in battlelines, I guess it would be very cool but tiresome game mechanic, to collect heads...
Why not auto-consider them skinned and de-boned collecting them as trophies? O_o

I know there are people more sicko than me and they would rather to see gory prey processing, but come on,
this is cortex command, remember how ended all that stuff involving the baby blender mod... not nicely.

Eh, at least they're taken while the 'prey' is alive, so it fits with the 'honor' system. But take it how you want, though.
And oh don't forget the healing crystals they use to instantly go back to 100 health. Maybe have it as a helddevice linked to a lua function in the pred actor... so for example you can only use the health recharge when there's 1 or more crytal helddevices in actor inventory, and then removing one of them when it's activated.

I'd also like to implement the regenerative blue cristals but as you can perceive taking a look,
healing systems in cortex command still naive and didn't evolved since B21 (limbs still not heal-able or replaceable)

So they just roar and life goes up, that's what current lua allow us to do :???:
well, you can super-clone and "equalize" the old one, by removing it...
making everything the same except what you want to heal, dark sorcery.

Well we can circumvent that by doing one of these things:
-remember Predator 2 when that predator got his hand cut off? He used some kind of medikit that healed him up, but not his hand. So we can make something that doesn't regenerate limbs.
-on the other hand, we could make it regenerate limbs by 'deleting' the old actor and replacing it with a clone, and transfer the old 'stats' (ie. trophies collected, whatever's in inventory) to the new one. This way you have a 'full' actor with the same stats as the old one.
Healing crystals are very doable.

Believe me when I tell you, these predator actors are BIG for average actors and their limbs suffer a lot of punishment,
have a medical acid crystal which only regenerate HP will end up with one mutilated giant torso full of bleeding wounds...

Have you seen "the outer limits" chapter of teleport? which some lizards similar looking to dinosaurs share with humankind a
very advanced technology to duplicate a body with the same characteristics, in other completely different place while remove the old one?
That was not teleporting, that was a cut&paste of living beings, and this wouldn't be a medical stone, it would be a cut&paste of living actors.

I'm completely against "remove-actor-in-order-to-heal-his-limbs" no matter how free of bugs it is.

This is the progress done until now, predator weapons completely kick asses,
and the xenomorphs are fast and acidic bleeding, which ends crazily...

Until now, I tried to contact akblabla but he doesn't give signals of life :???:
so I consider this mod-proyect closed until he says something...

Thank you, don't doubt they're so manly and powerful as they look.

Abuse mod meaning raping? watch out with polemical subjects... the staff will annihilate you until
no ashes remains if they doesn't like what you're working on, just like the inventor of water-powered car.
