| i like the idea of mixing in the crowd with 1 wanted star to make it drop... |
and silent kills is any gamer's fetish sounds challenging
oh and yeah i played Saboteur and i think i might have a lead on how to make a modest imitation of that stealth system...
after this weekend ill know if its as doable as i hope
oh, hippie, i like it when u get into that excited mood.
that's when u come up with good stuff.
we are crossing fingers
if to expand my ideas a lil bit:
1) blending in - if the player is moving in the same speed as peds around him, and there are 3 peds (maybe 3 is too much? less maes less sense though) near him (5 meters? less?) than he is invisible to enemies (cops?AIs that spawned with mods?) that are farther than 30 meters away for about 10 seconds. maybe longer. needs testing. if the peds around the player are running than the player should run too. probably too complicated to see if peds around the player are moving or not. probably easiest to tell the game that blending is possible only if the player is walking or something.
2) one hit kill - it could use the animation of the hit when holding a weapon. for some reason until 184.108.40.206 it wasnt possible (i thknk that in earlier patches the ESC key ddid that animation but u cant use it that way. stupid R*). i dont even think it should NOT be only from behind. i think that if its done from the front too than it's ok. could use the F key, since the F key does nothing unless u r near a car and u would try to gun-butt someone near a car. dunno if its possible to make it do a "one-hit-kill" when u r not near a car but if u ARE near a car than it will be "enter car".
3) player is recognision by cops - recognizing the player as the wanted man (which terns stars from grey to white) if he is seen from the front faster than if he is seen from behind and make him recognizable slower if he isnt holding a weapon. if player is holding a pistol than he is considered hostlie only from up close (20 meters maybe?). if he is holding a rifle than he can be recognized as a hostile from farther away (from 50 meters or something).
these are my basic ideas. u can take them or through them in my face and call me a douche.
just putting them out there.
