Post subject:  A bunch of stuff I made, including a needler

These mods are a collection of my favorite things I've made over a large timespan. The AHP was made for a looong time ago, but since then I've improved it.

The Gecko Trooper

To the right, two of them with Dischargers. To the left there's one with the AHP
Here are three Gecko's lined up. They have augmented jetpacks, stronger helmets and take less damage from bleeding and other damages. Basically improved Coalition troops with a blue theme+blue flesh.

Discharger

[The extension bmp has been deactivated and can no longer be displayed.]

This one-handed submachine gun is very unusual. It shoots crystal-like projectiles that propel themselves toward your enemies. However, the bolts, who phase through units don't do damage but the fragments that make the thing go forward do. This allows it to bypass armor plating. Therefore, damage relies on the weakness of the base armor.
Good against fleshy targets but sucks against dummies and dropships. I have no idea what it sounds like due to technical problems so excuse me if it sounds horrible.

AHP
Attachment:
[The extension bmp has been deactivated and can no longer be displayed.]

This thing functions as a quite powerful shotgun with a strange damage pattern. It shoots a projectile that explodes in mid-air and lets loose a volley of pressure and shrapnel. At short range, it will either backfire or explode your target. At medium range, or just after detonation, it will completely devestate anything (Maybe not an MPAAM, but whatever, you get the deal.) At long range the shrapnel and pressure will still do their job, randomly gibbing heads or more oftenly disarming your opponent.

These are my first real mods, and this thread is actually my first post. Please give critique on how I can improve them.
All credits go to myself and Azukki for providing the templates I used.

With that said, could someone provide me with a gif for the Discharger? Pictures don't really do justice for it, it looks good in action.

Some good ideas right here. Not too fond of the troops' lack of unique spriting but otherwise, good job.

Thanks. I've been thinking of adding some more armor bits to the Gecko and eye glows. Also, 1-800-MAEK-GIF-NAOW please.

I really like the concepts behind these weapons. I mean, its sort of been done before but everything about this seems laid back and balanced towards vanilla content.

Yes, i tried making them quite distinct but not too far-out. I'm not sure I got the prices right though. Would someone PLEASE gif the Discharger? It looks good in action.

Any chance of you releasing that map? :)

The map is called sandbank I think, it's a 2 player map.

Thanks. I'd like to make some variations of it, but I'm not quite sure in what way. Grenade, a grenade launcher or something like that would be fun. Perhaps even a shotgun.

EDIT: I just made a nade, but when it gibs into an 'active' state it only shoots needles in one direction. I've set the spread at 3.14 too. Help?

i dont mean to flame but you needa try harder next time. the machine gun looks like a deformed pistol and the gecko just looks ugly. i liked the innovation, but you needa execute it better next time.

The AHP is a fun weapon, though.

Allright, but what specifically is ugly on it? And it's an smg, not a machine gun.

dont use .bmp for screenshots please. .png saves on space a lot, and doesnt alter the quality like a .jpg does.

You should really keep going with this. It looks epic. The AHP and needler are fun to play with. But the Gecko is, as you say, a coalition trooper with bells on.

Post subject:  Re: A bunch of stuff I made, including a needler

Yup. I'm not how I can make it differ more from coal. troops though. Thought a bit about for example leg armor or heavier chest armor etc. Eye glows have gone through my mind as well. What do you think?
