    This is the thread for discussion and idea finding for the new Brenodi Empire RPG/Mortar Combination. Keep this civil and stick with the current style of Empires. Anyone working on this or wanting to pitch constructive ideas may post here.

    Some things to note with this model:
    - It does not necessarily have to be a 2 in 1 weapon again. 2 separate weapons are fine as well.
    - Coders are asked to post here as well, since the mortar requires some back and forth between the artists and other developers, considering it's crouch/prone firing mechanic.

    Put a kick stand on it and it can become a mortar.
    I personally think we should keep the current BE mortar and just use a different rpg.

    Be mortar looks to much like a uniform tube compared to nfs detail.
    Rpgs shield must absolutely go away.

    Something based of CG, though it might look a bit too much like nf stuff.

    Really the rpgs look kinda meh, oddly enough AA launchers would seem much better looking if used with current combo weapon, just with slightly wider tube.

    Oh and, on an unrelated note, request for some *not fucking overblown* backblast effect to be implemented.

    im interested in why it needs a remodel. is it just because the mortar is missing its third person view?

    Id imagine its because the blast shield covers about 50% of what the hud doesnt obscure already

    Re-editing the model has been discussed and apparently its easier to make a new one because it would fuck with the animation for the mortar when the animation for it is perfect and nobody should touch the animation for the mortar.

    Ever..

    Could you change that blast shield to glass or some type of plastic? It would serve the purpose of protecting the face and still let you see through. Considering it's just a texture thing I think it wouldn't mess with the mortar animations.

    Because half-arsed solutions like that give you shitty results.

    Yeah, it can be done. It's just a texture.

    lol what? Why does it need a blast shield... if it doesn't do shit for you? IF while aiming you got 10% reduction in damage I could see it staying in. Otherwise... remove that useless shit.

    Edit:
    See this shit right here... The fucking Nazi had it right. Fuck all that extra shit if it don't do any good.

    Yes... except the blast shield actually works for them. Does it for us?

    Blast shields work? Who would have thought of that? Too bad our developers didn't think that instead of throwing a vision blocking object in for no reason other then... they had it in WW2 for some silly reason that we are not going to investigate.

    Then the point of having it on the model in the first place is...

    You have the very same nazis to thank for introducing the oversized shields to begin with
    And candles linked the same shit twice. Good job.

    Exactly... it worked for them. It actually did a job of saving the solders lives. It does no such thing in the game in fact it does the opposite.

    Okay. I'll make you a deal. We remove the blast shield, but now due to the lack of protection, using the RPG causes 10 damage to the gren.
