Modding Ground Branch forum

17 November 2015 - 07:45 AM

As it is now, mapping and everything else community development related fall into Modding Ground Branch. Maybe we can change the forum name to Ground Branch Development. With a sub for Mapping, Modding, Scripting etc.

Mappers really deserve their own space. :)

All Tribes games for free

30 October 2015 - 07:29 AM


I guess not one person here plays Tribes, but nevertheless they're free now. And free stuff has that sweet taste of keeping money in your pocket. Not sure how long they're offered though!

Get them while you can.

From a similar thread in Squad where i asked, this nice video was posted.
This would look great in GB wouldn't you say?

Auto lowering weapon (when it shouldn't)

04 May 2015 - 03:48 AM

When the weapon collides with the world/map objects it automatically lowers. The thing is sometimes i don't want it to do that. I.e. when i'm near to blocks and crouch, the weapon can still 'rest' on the block but it doesn't. Most times it lowers automatically and i have to raise it again and aim up, then slowly lower it to where i want it to be..

I'm afraid this auto-lowering will eventually cause a lot of frustration at times when you don't want it to lower due to wrong map clipping and such.

I'd rather have it like Infiltration where you control the lowering yourself. When the weapon collides you hear audible feedback and it just won't move beyond the colliding object. Then you just reposition etc. After a while this was an "automatic" process and just had you aware -all the time- where your weapon was. Later when the resting feature was added it was just perfect. Ground Branch seems to do this different though. There is no large freeaim area like in Infiltration, i wouldn't know how to implement manual lowering in GB at this point..

Will there be a manual lowering implemented? With a freeaim area? What are your plans with regards to this?
