OH MY GOODNESS YES! I once tried to make something like this but it didn't work out. I'm super excited to see it here! I'll break out my SWBF2 once this comes out.

This looks visually incredible! What is the gameplay like, though? :o Anything new? Is it vehicle-based or infantry-based? Looks to be the former based on the screenshots.

Well done sir, well done. I've always thought of doing a Tron mod, so I'm glad to see someone taking up the mantle. I'm curious though as to how you're doing the light wall, since the way I started to approach it was that the vehicle would drop a link behind it constantly that behaved like a mine, but yours looks continuous like in the films. I'm particularly impressed by the bending shown by the light jet. Honestly, you are the first modder I've ever seen that has done something that I cannot fathom how it works. Well done sir, well done.

Well, I've think in 3 places for the world,

1) Game grid, the actual place, for light cycles and light runners maybe with some selfpilot vehicles
2) Streets, for infantry and tanks
3) Simulation sea, for flyers.

The player will select the Cp for spawn in the desiree area.

Thanks my friend! The lightwall is the result of ODF editing + one simple cube mesh,

I take the proton bombs from the rep_fly_vwing and the respect parent (common side), then make a cube (wall) to attach in the odf with a glow texture, the default is the thermal detonator mesh, set up to 0.05 the velocity change the reload time and life spawn, and change the explosion parametters to get soft explosions.

So, the "bombs" (wall mesh) not fall, are static in the point than have fired. WALAAAA!!!! lightwall! :D

Wow...that is actually a really clever way to do that. So, if the light wall is made of ordnance explosions, do they dissipate once the player dies, or are they on the map forever?

Also on suggesting vehicles, I would love to see a flynn's cycle, like the ones in the original movie.

The LifeSpawn parametter controls the time ingame for each wall, 3.0 is te value that make continuous "firing", for some reason if these value was more over, the vehicle can not fire until disappear the first shoot. so, the wall chunk was ingame 3 seconds, but you can fire more of 50 continuosly. also the ai dies in contact with it.

EDIT: about cycle, is a good idea, i will try to make one.

Thanks friends!

I'll post new updates this night :D .

(Off and On topic) Now, I'm trying to get the appropiate set up for light disc throw , it will be some similar to throw --> bounce(x times when collide with props or building if are in his way until the life time expired) --> hit the units/vehicles --> return to the player. the case is that the default "com_weap_inf_sabre_throw_ord" is not labeled with "sticky", so I have not idea if the "melee" weapon and "meleethrow" can have an secondary ord than enabled the sitcky condition.

Any idea?

EDIT:
New unit: CLU's Black Guard (Jet trooper)

Weapons: Staff (double melee), time bombs, Vehicle dispenser -cycle or fighter- (in progress)

The "flyng" anim is a custom for the default "human_pistol_jetpack_hover".

The "jetpack" is an attached mesh in the .fx file, and works while the unit is hover, it looks twinkling ingame very fast because the position and rotation of the bone change with anims, so it need update constantly, otherwise looks weird.

(Off and On topic) I have a problem with the melee weapon anim for the jetpack, It works ingame but not properly, looks like this:

The upper body gets the correct anim but the lower not, some problem with .COMBO file?

It looks like it is using the default animation for the lower half of the body.
Try adding another .msh to the set/ selecting your old one and naming it:

"<name>_sabre_jetpack_hover_full"

Otherwise it is probably a combo problem.

This map looks awesome! Impressive vehicles!
