I don't know if this was posted before or not, but i looked around and couldnt find anything. Anyway, is it possible to allow passengers in a jeep, or on the sides of a tank to use thier weapons? After all, i can't see myself sitting on the outside of a tank getting shot at, and staring blankly at the bad guys. Besides, it already looks like the player is holding his gun, its just not there. It will probably be suggested to me that u just get off of the tank, or out of the jeep if i wanna shoot someone. True, but who says that the jeep or tank is gonna stop while i do so. So i killed the bad guy, now im in the middle of nowhere, essentially with a bullseye on my head. I'm not saying that everyone on the tank could carry a bazooka or HMG making ur vehicle a moving fortress, but if you're already sitting there, at least pull out ur thompson, er m1. What do u guys think :uhm:
Nope you can't BF's Engine won't allow people to shoot from vehicals unless it is a Static weapon on the Vehical. Just as BF's Engine doesn't allow more than Six Poeple to Sit/occupy a vehical.
so theoretically, if u mounted a thompson er something for the passengers to shoot, it could work. Kind of like the inside machine gun on a tank, only with a different model, er skin
Aslong as it is a Static Weapon on the Vehical then Yes. But it would look goofy as hell though
lol, u have a point, but no goofier than someone sitting on the side of a tank holding an invisible gun :p
Thats because you can't make it look like they have guns, once again BF's engine comes into play
ok ill shut up after this. Would it be possible to make it look like they were sitting in the side of a jeep, with thier hands on thier lap?
not really sure

You never played ActionBF, have you? They... or he, rather, has done it in his mod. When you sit on top of the jeep, you actually hold whatever gun you had selected, and you can fire it. It's messed up. The animation is out of place, and aiming is off, and it's quit buggy, but at least it's a start. If someone could use the same code and "finish" it, then it would be more then possible. I still don't understand why other mods overlook ActionBF. It was the first mod out there, and it has the most number of innovations. It's gameplay is non-existant since it's a collection of everything he could put together, but it's definatelly full of features. That being said. It would be a waste of time coding this for BF42 engine, since FH will move to BF2, and just like BFV, BF2 will support firing from vehicles passenger positions
