in the video I can’t exactly see what is happening and what @Chief-Recktless is doing. Normally at that position there is also a door. And even if not, hitscan needs a “hole” so to speak. As far as I know you can’t glitch with the camera and a moving ship into blocks by pressing the page up key.
Maybe @Chief-Recktless has a video from his perspective to clear it up.
Spawning HVs is a very bad compromise we had to make because the LandClaim Device + Regeneration of POIs are so bugged. So everyone can do it.
But I see the event turned out to be a complete different gameplay than I hoped.
Since HVs are involved all over the place, for offense and defense exploits are being used to shoot through blocks. I am currently collecting a lot of videos and savegames to report them to Eleon.
But for now, I hope for common human sense. If I see it gets more dirty I will pull the trigger again as I did last season. If too many cheater are ruining the fun, I will deactivate it on EU completely again.
I am currently handling real life organisation.
I’ll check the videos / punishments later in detail.
Outstanding nr. 2 thing about the “wall shoot” remember … OPG shooting AAA GMC bunker last session or 2 session S8 you know what i mean … so its a Puls laser Glitch … everyone knows it … and CHIEF whas in GMC so he knows about this trick … fact
What about another compromise? Instead of the land claim on the main POI, what about putting an indestructible LC on the four towers and expanding the blocks out to cover the entire area including the metropolis? Or perhaps a minibase built on the metropolis that’s nothing more than a LC for the same function?
In your own picture you show where are doors. You see laser rounds going under walkway which means it is not going trough doors, but trough walls. Also you can see his name on the right. He is under door level.
It is very obvious what he or you said aint true (shooting trought doors).
It could be he made hole in wall and shoot. I dont know.
As Rex said. It would be very good to see his video and know what actually happened.
For now it looks like shooting trough wall or trough hole in wall.
Overall very interesting. Few issues with that I think:
if the LC devices are indestructible and the zones overlapping the Metropolis, you still get a message saying “there are bases near you - can’t place a core”.
But we could add another Story to the 4 towers around the Metropolis, so you really have to go inside and solve a puzzle / kill the LC device inside there. But
if you kill the LC device during the run time, like I implemented with the HWS Factories, it can happen, that the Anti Grief zone is not instantly updated. You have to fly out of Eton and come back again to see the changed Anti Grief zone.
Since playfield changes during a big PvP fight are mostly a guaranteed disconnect, it’s not that cool either
That sounds as a better compromise but how do you get HVs to Eton?
Not everyone know the possibilities to fly with HVs from the Orbit down to a planet.
And CVs will never be allowed for Eton.
And nobody is going to build a HV from scratch… but maybe you should… have to think about that Story / Gameplay option…
Or I implement a quick PDA Eton Mission, which is really teaching / telling you to deploy HVs from orbits.
There are some cool movies around where similar things are realized and it’s cool
