UAVs (drones)

by maier.nathan » Thu Dec 31, 2015 04:04

If I had everything I wanted at my finger tips, I'd have a UAV/drone mod. It would be helpful in building things where you can't reach without flying mode. You could spy on players. So just an even more 8-bit display in the already 8-bit world.

Just a first couple of ideas.

Is this at all possible?

Yes.

I think so, at least. here's how I would approach the concept:

- create a drone entity that can fly
- attach the player to the entity, scale or modify the player in such a way that it is no longer visible
- place a dummy player model at the place where you want the player to return to if the drone crashes. Other players will see a "mindless player that is in a trance".

Seems possible to me.
