  • Explosive Barrels

    Here's an idea that I had for a new object that could be coded into Thievery:

    Explosive barrels:
    -Can be carried around in the same fashion as crates
    -Detonates upon receiving damage (perhaps only fire-based damage or flares)

    The moveable bit would definately be optional, & so mappers could have piles of these barrels in "sensitive" areas, so that players would have to adopt a more cautious attitude.

    You could even link them to destroyable walls, so that thieves can use them to blow open certain parts of the map (would have to be pretty obvious which areas can be destroyed). It wouldn't be very stealthy, but would definately add a fair punch to a map

    Split from original thread and added this to the Suggestions Summary Page.

    Cool suggestion, I like it

    Please remember to submit your ideas to [email protected] since I don't get chance to catch them all. Thanks.

      Ah, I was thinking

      "I didn't start that thread did I?"

      Thanks for starting a new thread Chainsaws.


      By the way, when I suggest an idea, it normally means that I'm planning on scripting it myself. My map is floating in limbo (still 80% complete) & so I'll probably just script some new objects.

        Cool, will you be making these scripts available to other mappers once your map is released?

          I'll probably make them available before that. My map is just something that kindof rolls along, & one in a while, I get a substantial amount of work sorted on it. My scripting projects I normally do one afternoon or another, when I'm bored.

          I spent the majority of this afternoon perfecting my "Spider Egg" pickup.

          Once I've got a batch of working objects, I'll put them all in one package & announce it publicly.

          It's unlikely, but should I ever complete of all of my own proposed ideas, then I'll start looking over the ones you've collected & see if any look like they may be worth scripting.

            I'd love to see more interesting objects, explosive barrels could be a lot of fun!

                  Hmm sounds good I like it!! But i think that arrows and switches should also blow up the crates as well! :grin: :grin: :grin:

                    This is an especially cool idea considering thieves will have fire arrows in 1.3 :grin:

                      Aren't they just flare arrows, for thiefmatch?

                      Bah, we need 1.3 to come out so we have something new to argue about.
