Yea satchel charges would be great.
Trip-wires would rock...something that was a bit automated but could be disarmed.
I take what n0e says way too seriously

'[SYN hydraSlav']Well, after the Empires mod created OnScreenMenues, credits for the team, spawnable building (i know they are not the first ones, but still), etc, i don't think we need SDK for anything, just some awsome brainwork! Regarding the topic, i think that would be cool, but would make the engineer too versatile. However, something similar is already possible in game. You can pick up another engineers kit and you will have control of the expacks he placed. And if you keep changing the kits repeatadly, they won't disappear :) Here is what i did once: I placed expacks on the Arhem Bridge in Market Garden, then ran down to the Stone Bridge (since the flag was contested). I got killed there, but the flag turned to our side (teamwork ;) ), and i spawned there. As i spawned, i noticed my kit laying there. So i picked it up and saw the detonator still in "ready" state. I switched the kits back, and used the newer kits to put expacks on Stone Bridge. Then i went back to the place where my older kit was laying (too bad you can't move kits.....), and then i just kept hitting the "G" key, counting "1..2..1...2" in the head to remember which kit has which bridge. Shortly, i saw a tank crossing the Arhem Bridge, so i blew it up, and second later a jeep was flying through the Stone Bridge, so i blew that up too ;). Funny, but both of those guys were from the same clan, and after my neat trick they started complaining about me having "place-expacks-anywhere-instantly-hack" ;) LOL
You must have gotten lucky, mines disappear like 30 seconds after you die :p

Not really... They disappear after your kit disappears. But as i said, i kept switching kits back and forth, so it never disappeared. :nodding:
Who_Flung_Poo?Yea satchel charges would be great.
Rt click to drop one....and hold to set time. The longer you hold the button down, the longer the delay. Such a thing would be DEADLY though. It would make destroying tanks with one almost too easy. Or see the enemy advancing a flag you are trying to defend, and you know you have no hope of defending by yourself? Drop one, set the delay, and get out! You just might wipe those bastards out before the flag changes.

And the satisfaction? Priceless.

That's a pretty damn good idea. It makes picking up exppacks and using them as traps a whole lot more interesting.
