is it possible to make Tauntaun shoot swoop laser? as the 2nd weapon. the first one is saber of course. I put the tag lines for swoop laser on the Tauntaun NPC script but it dosen't change it:uhm:

No, there is no tag for firing weapons on a tauntaun, if you where to mod a tag in for firing then you might be able to, but otherwise no.

I do believe it's also related to the vehicle class. I doubt you could mount a blaster on an animal-type vehicle, the game code just won't allow it.

yes you can! its been done in fact, but its not in the code that you have to edit. you need to open the tauntaun model into a 3d editing program like gmax or xmod and place the "Tag" from the swoop to the tauntaun.

if you look at the making a saber tut on the master sticky theres a step on moving the tags from a pre-made saber to the one you made. just do the same thing for that tauntaun.

ill post some pictures proving it.

I don't think anyone's disputing the fact that it can be done, but rather the fact that it can't be done without editing the model. Reading the thread, ftw. :nodding:

Although frankly I'm at a loss as to why anyone would want to. Tauntauns spitting lasers goes beyond the bounds of creativity and lands somewhere in pure weirdness. o.0


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

I suppose you could pass it off as some experiment to create life-like mechanical creatures armed with blasters to be used for riot control on frickin' freezing worlds. Barely.

EDIT: And I did, in fact, doubt the possibility of having a tauntaun shoot blaster bolts.

ahh yes I opened tauntaun's model file and there is no tag for the weapon. only a tag for the seating spot. too bad...:( my idea was to make tauntaun shoot something from it's mouth as the secondary weapon. so I can change the effect and make tauntaun spit fire, or acid, or maybe a robo-tauntaun that can shoot rocket.:naughty: so you can ride a tauntaun and use saber as primary weapon, and switch to tauntaun's breath attack as the secondary weapon. the effect part can be done by editing several scripts I think. only it needs a weapon tag for the tauntaun it seems:uhm:. by the way I didn't know you can spawn a rancor or wampa vehicle:eek:
