HI all, i just had an idea to implement combat gliders into this mod... ya know the american normandy things? the ones that liked to crumple on impact? ^_~

Heres a pic: ebe174.jpg

O.o oops... hehe... :-p wrong one..... here ya go: glider2.jpg

ahh yes yes.... THAT one... (nice landing :uhoh: )

anyway, i had an idea to implement these ingame....

why not put an invisible "ship" in the sky (just above the fog limit... so people dont just look up and see floating gliders ^_~, and hang these things there like the landing craft, then have people spawn in them like the DC AC_130... then, when it fills up with people (should have many seating positions, plus standing room), the person in the pilot seat presses forward, and it drops out of the sky ^_^ it shouldnt have an engne but it should be controlable.. and the pilot can land and the troops can disembark....

sound good? no it probibly doesnt... seeing as i havent slept in just over 35 hours and its starting to take effect... but trust me... this would be a totally awsome idea! gliders swooping down in a night map over normandy, landing on skids (im SURE it can be coded so they flip real easy ^_~ just like r/l... hehehe)

try and comment on this... i KNOW it would be cool... and if i wasnt so damn lazy i would implement this into a map of mine (id have to learn advanced objects/objects work.... but its possible :-p)

in the meantime... since im so tired... i will post a short verse of my favorite ROTC chant ^_~ (i love it ^_~)

(STRIKE LIKE LIGHTNING, SOUND LIKE THUNDER, WE PUT THE ENEMY 6 FEET UNDER!!!! BLOOD MAKES THE GRASS GROW! (KILL KILL KILL) HIGHLY MOTIVATED! ALWAYS DEDICATED! (DRILL DRILL DRILL)) meh... the caps signify it is shouted ^_~ i wasnt being impolite

and to wrap it all up... heres another shot of that ewok combat glider ^_~ (did a search of "COmbat glider" on google.... HAD to post it ^_~)

Sure, I already thought about that, but for the lack of a glider we haven't done it yet.

i guess it would take a lot of skill to land a glider because you can't just cut the landing, give full power and go around for the next try. People would most likely use it as a stationary parachute platform...

ahha! but i already know of a way to fix that ^_^

by default the door would be closed (other then the opening nose, there is a door in the side (front left i beleve... look on the bottom pic, notice there are only 4 guys on the left side and 5 on the right? makes room for the door ^_~), i dont think the nose one is neccicary), and could be opened by the copilot.. even if it was open, it would be on the side and in the front, so you cant bail out unless the glider is stopped...

:-p this would be so cool....

BTW these things should be litterally invincible :-p makes for better landings.... :-p its impossible for one of these to explode anyway...

:-p ph33r t3h 3W0|<5

anyway... would anyone be interested in making this acvtually work? i mean just like a newbie coder... just put like a floating fighter jet you can spawn in with no engene, infanite health, and no landing gear... (make it easy to flip over).. just to test the flight and landing physics, so if the FH people want this in, the cody will be ready-made ^_^
