  • Decoy arrow suggestion.

    Perhaps add an option that creates a running decoy, running in the direction that you fired the arrow. I'm not sure how to implement this though... there are situations where sitting decoys are usefull and situations where running decoys would be really usefull (imagine sitting on a roof near exit and firing a running decoy so it would run in a dark alley, cue all the guards running after the decoy, trying to find it with flares, and then cue you catfalling down and exiting with the greatest of ease).

    Perhaps make it so that when you tap 8 (standard decoy weap. switch, I think) once, you get "Lurking Decoy arrow", and when you tap 8 twice you get a "Running Decoy arrow".

    The running decoy would act like a fleeing guard, they run in a direction and when they hit a wall they randomly change direction. When they collide with an AI or human they go *poof*... They should last just as long as the Lurking decoys we have now.

            I'm pretty sure it's still there and that you can still use it, you'll just have to edit your loadouts.ini to get it in.

            I remember that when I upgraded to 1.3 I still had footstep arrows in my loadouts that had them.

                    ...and instead of a smoke puff, make it do a *gulb-gulb* sound before disappearing.

                      What's a gulb gulb sound?

                            I thought that was a g-u-l-p g-u-l-p sound.

                            *shrugs*

                            I could be wrong.

                            And as for the word g-u-l-p. I had to write it that way or this happened gulp.

                            What's up with that?

                              I don't know how easy it would be to implement but I like the idea.
                              Might be necessary to increase the price of the arrows if they have an extra option though..or were you thinking of two separate arrows?
