File Description

Heres a cool 1 seater vehicle that replaces the Raptor with a hellacopter. Its main guns are like the goliath turrets but the bullets have a small slpash damage. The secondary is like the Raptors missles but these shoot a bit faster. Heres somethin neat: sometimes, if you get hit in the back with an avirl missle, the back part of the hellacopter breaks off and you start falling but that doesnt mean its destroyed. This vehicle has 600 health and has custom sounds that are pretty realistic.

Description: Whether the Atakapa Indians practiced cannibalism for subsistence or ritual is unknown. What is known is that neither the former nor latter are that reasons this battle chopper is used in the Tournament. This vehicle sports a front mounted 50 caliber chaingun that fires exploding rounds with remarkable accuracy and guided missiles useful for air to air as well as Mantas. Replaces Raptors with the R-213 Atakapa. 

Credits to: DE, Epic for creating UT2004. Mccann and Wulff who helped with the coding to get this thing working.

* Play Information *

Use the Atakapa Mutator to change the Raptors into Atakapas.

Primary fire = 50 caliber chaingun. Devistating.
Alt-Fire = Homing missile same as the Raptor

Limited upward firing range. Altitude definately has its advantage.
650 hit points so you can last a bit longer and do more damage
Increased vertical lift as well as strafing, making this vehicle more responsive than the Raptor and you'll spend less time flying into the ground

Changes 5/30/2004
400 hitpoints
PrimaryFire only does 19 damage
Changed skins to final blend so model doesn't become transparent when hit with the link or shock weapons
Got rid of amnbient sound for the 50cal to lose the 'waterfall' sound when you had a dozen bullets flying

Fixed problem with rotors not rotating in 3rd person view during net play
Fixed problem with homing missiles not homing

Added tail wing to model
Increased UprightStiffness and UprightDamping
Created breakable rotor blades

Removed breakable blades - just not cool looking enough
Added breakable tail - increased health to 800 but at 300, tail breaks off and causes severe lack of control
Created new meshes with wires hanging out of damaged tail section
Put exhaust back in

Set health to 600 - TailHealth = 100
Fixed so that all effects work during net play
Changed windshield shader to better looking shader
Set up tail health so that tail breakage is independent from total health
General gameplay balance

* Known bugs *
Tracer appears when firing the homing missile and looks a little silly. 
Because the Atakapa replaces the Raptor, some spawing areas may be too small to allow the Atakapa to take off easily. Case in point would be ONS-ArcticStronghold where spawning occurs at the bases. For the most part, this is not an issue, but be aware - I have no idea as to what to do about this.
