Mighty gun turret! (gatling gun + rocket launcher)

Postby The Ace on Sun Jul 23, 2006 7:56 pm

Hello! Here is annother gun release from me, kindof to make up for the 5 weeks I were gone from the community (vacation)! ^^
This time, I have built a mighty gun turret, with a (slightly oversized? :P) Gatling gun, accompanied by dual rocket launching tubes!
Now for some pics:

Overview:

View from behind the shield

It is currently untextured, as you see it would be a b!tch to texture all those faces properly... Maybe I'll do it later.

You take control of the turret by walking up to the back of the shield and pressing "use" into it. You will be put into the invisible pod, and you can now use the movement keys to steer the turret around. A group of metrocops will spawn as soon as you enter the pod. Fire the weapons by holding left mouse button.
The gun will start firing and the rockets will begin launching in about a second.
Holding right mouse button will fire the gun only.

The making of this weapon provided me with a great deal of knowledge about using game_ui's for interaction with stuff. I learned how to setup logic_compares and all that, then decided to combine it with my skills as a gunsmith :)

I am uploading them to SourcePrefabs right now, hopefully they will put it up.
Links to my other gun releases can be found in my signature.

Tell me what you think!
Cheers!

Now that can't be right; Rickler_fly_planes has brush-based planes in it that has guns you can fire when flying it, and I played that map in MP a long time ago, i'm sure of it!

Right, but that was brush based object with tied on pods and a shooter. This uses a single player entity and weapon. Tank, so to speak.

lol funk_tank makes me laugh every time i see it.

I don't get it, this is also brush based, with a pod, and game_ui for controls? What entities did he use then?
By the way, does anyone have that map? I have been looking for it for ages... :P

Hmm I just found a prefab which I THINK is the thunderbolt plane he used. He just uses a simple env_gunfire, no damage, only visual candy?

Yeah, the actual RPG weapon rockets look like that, no way to change it.

Also note that the gun works in GMOD (both single- and multiplayer), tested.
