ive found a way to make my charecter completely invisable. my modle has no shadow and if you manage to target me it doesn't display a name. i can still travel the map as usual(attacking and all damadge objects still hurt me. its kinda fun to do online cause nobody can see me so i walk up and kill them.( i even get kill points) but npc's can still "see" me. is this supposed to happen?
Yes, lol. In simple terms, NPCs respond to your character's 3D mesh, not the textures or lack thereof. Camouflage, cloaking, invisiblity, etc. only works for opponents that use sight to locate enemies, i.e. human PCs (unless coding is in place for abilities like cloaking).
As for the effectivity of this online, other players will see you as Kyle if you're using a skin/model they don't have. I may be missing something, but the only other way to do so is via exploit, or cheating. Either way, it misses the point of playing the game: to compete against other players in even combat.
no its not a texture or skin. i just let a rancor catch me and before he eats me i noclip. he eats my charecter and the skin falls to the floor but the when i un noclip im still there kinda like it killed me but my ghost still wanders around. its just using noclip so i guess its cheating ...
