    I'd like to see moss arrows eating them zombies alive (or undead ).

    Get some use out of the ol' piece of steel.

    Kinda like the freeze gun in unreal4ever mod. So that would be possible
    with the UT engine.
    To be fair.. (although there is no way the devs would put an ice arrow in anyways).. guards should have a thick coating of ice on them that would wear off if you hit them or if a fellow guard chopped them. Making it a lot more fair and have more of a point. The ice arrow was actually invented by someone in the TTLG forums that i used to talk to... and the rock arrow was brought to you by yours truly. I know this because I remember how many people shot me down for making this arrow in dromed... but I got it to work! And i still use it when i play Thief2. I love it and I think I convinced a lot of people it was the most practical vs gas arrows and invis pots. However.. I dont think this type of arrow belongs in TUT, its a thief weapon... some weapons and level designs just dont cross over to TUT.

    More info on the ice and rock arrows from TTLG:

    You see, Oie, there comes a time in every young man's life, when he posts something without actually bothering to read the thread...

    ...yes...

    Hmm I thought that was what my suggestion said. Oh well.

    How about an ice arrow that makes a small surface area have a surface friction of nearly nothing... could be fun to watch guards tripping up as you run off.

    It's also probably impossible to code.

    Well, I can't remember WHEN, but I remember you came up with an idea that I liked. Don't recall what it was though....

    It's OK, TDan, we still love you for your scripting skills.

    I think TDan holds the record for most ideas shot down.

    The flashbomb incapacitates anyone looking at it (wide range) ; the crack incapacitates anyone crossing the small psychoactive cloud : there's still room left for a 3rd thief non lethal weapon. While paralysis would be generally bad (guard becomes BJ bait or may be killed by swordthieves) , friction altering sounds both funny and balanced. While it would be of no use in a narrow corridor (guard would keep sliding) , it would give a last chance for the heavily chased thief carrying objectives or stuff.

    Here's how the arrow would work : making an ice wave on impact that changes friction settings to 0 for anyone caught within the effect radius (including the archer) for a good while (longer than crack)

    The funniest weapon of the Rocket Crowbar mod being the anti-friction grenade (same effects , gives negative friction...)

    If you're looking to play with Germans, Shadoweye, perhaps Mikeson will let you join his clan? I know that it has a few members, and from what I hear from Seemann it's not much more than a community, if I understand correctly.
