Post Clone Bowling (12/19/08 01:16GMT)


Have you ever wanted to go bowling, but didn't have the money? Ever wish the pins would try to run away? Then have I got a mod for you!
Clone Bowling, the least sensible sport recently invented, is easy to learn and very enjoyable. Just follow these simple steps, and you'll be on your way to hours upon hours of enjoyment*!
1. Download the ordering information here:
Attachment:
Bowling.rte_v0.02.rar

2. Order your very own Bowling Gun(c). Note that this specialized piece of equipment, which is quite complicated on the inside, is easy to use. The first shot will roll to the right, or clockwise, whichever makes most sense to you. The second will roll to the left, or counterclockwise.
3. Set up some pins. These can be anything able to be entirely destroyed, such as Clones, which the sport is named after.
4. Utterly destroy the pins with your new found powers of squash!
Image

*May not actually be hours upon hours. Or enjoyment.

Q&C welcome, especially anyone offering better sprites. I simply cannot make anything good.
And if anyone feels like doing Lua for score keeping or anything else, be my guest.

EDIT: Updated for b22, probably too late to be really useful with b23 right around the corner.

Can you give the cannon a bowling pin sprite(with the bottom facing forward)?

So why does each shot reverse the direction it spins? Any particular reason? Also is the ball an actor or something, MOSRotating?

The magazine has two variants of the, yes, MOSRotating bowling ball. The first has invisible emitters spinning it clockwise, the second, counterclockwise. I first tried passive spin given by friction, but the ball was slow and quickly spun to a stop, usually only destroying one or two clones. Like so:

EDIT: This is the older version. It doesn't look or act the same.

I'm no modding master or anything, but is there any way to make the spin depend on the direction the gun was pointed?

Oh dammit I can't remember his name, but I remember a certain idea he came out with that "deformed" objects as opposed to that ugly decal that shows up on metal.

BLIPFLIP that's who it was, but yea incorporate that, it would look a lot better on a bowling ball than those ugly metal decals. Something about "transparent color 3 pixels square"?

That's the older version. I simply removed wounds on the current incarnation. Would people like a degrading ball? I kinda like having this invincible and nigh-unstoppable sphere of pain rolling around.

Like, explodes into a whole bunch of little bits? Too much effort. Or, explodes like a bomb? Maybe. It kinda ruins the point though, which is to crush everything in your path.

You sir, have won. This thing is genius. Dummy bowling is fun too, but I have to try it on Dummy Mk2. Exploding gibs and destructibility plus bowling ball equals flying ball of doom?

yeah funny.....
a couple of days ago i wrote about my favourite tactic in the thread: Your favourite tactics,
where i wrote that i like to use the new Cannonball-rocket as a bowlingball to crush the enemies,
well when i logged in today i saw this post with the bowling-ball-cannon and the first i thought: Whoaaa a REAL bowling-ball, now i dont have to play with the cannonball anymore because now i have a real one to squash my enemies with.

The only thing i got dissapointed at was the short lifetime/low durability.
Please make it last longer.....

This looks brilliant.
It's funny, today I was just theorizing about a gun which shot something one way and then shot one going a different way witha tracer.
