    Take the current hijack plugin, make it official and have it apply to the scout and only the scout as a possible skill.
    This should hopefully give scouts a bigger role in the game; for example, I sticky stun a tank so the driver jumps out so I kill him and hijack the tank.

    I think that scouts are pretty useful by themselves already. It's just that they have so many random half-assed uses that it is difficult to attribute one single use to them, as people tend to do to other classes.
    However, since they have so many weak skills that don't really define their role, I believe that giving them vehicle hijack would improve their abilities greatly.

    Another fun ability to miss out on while not having any useful skills.

    Vehicle hijacking should be supported in code (vehicles changing team), but accessible only to plugins.

    I do kinda like this idea...i'm thinking of the worst case scenario and camping scouts waiting for someone to hop out of a heavy to repair it, or summat...but... doesn't seem that bad tbh.

    I like the idea of scouts easily hijacking low level vehicles definately. And call him a sabouteur or summat so we can solve all this scout role stuff.

    Ikalx, thats a GREAT way to counter engyfags repairing big fat tanks the easy way.

    Just that hijack shouldn't be instantaneous, but rather like Sabotage, put on a timer.

    I didn't think about it like that, but now that you brought it up, it's like killing 2 birds with one stone huh.

    Krenzo has hated this idea and every duplicate thread(this is prolly #200). I think he would much rather this mod die then have this. It's always been a bad idea and the server plug-in looks retarded with red and blue tanks. It's a lulz thing not something that should be a feature. You haven't seen people give tanks to other teams and ruin maps like escort.

    If you have a scout sitting around waiting for someone to hop out of a tank it will be as useful as a sniper laying around a base waiting 10 mins for 1 kill.

    if its implemented with those horrible m&m-colored tanks again or if its a scunt only feature - DO NOT WANT!

    if not, i still dont understand (other than personal preferences) why krenzo would be so strictly against it - and i knew that already ...

    I was thinking of suggesting this but I thought it was gonna be shot down.

    +1 support but have it as a skill so that scout hide and scout hijack can't be used in conjunction at start.

    Try searching before suggesting.

    Not that this really pertains to much to the suggestion, but...

    A. tanks only look retarded because i don't have anyone to skin it for me and because people rage when a tank that looks exactly like theirs starts killing them.

    B. the plugin version is already on a timer set to 10 seconds but configurable.

    C. If you guys want, i can throw it up on nachos like that, I've already got a cvar for engineer only, I'll just make one for scout only.

    D. plugin is actually half fucked up right now due to vehicle optimizations that were made this update.

    no one wants the ugly blue and red tanks. They just want hijack. And like I said people give tanks to losing teams for lulz and NF get heavies on maps like escort.

    It doesn't add anything to game play. Krenzo has many reasons to not want it in game and the fact that this post is breaking the forums rules means it should be locked.. It's his game if he doesn't want it, its not going to be offical. Leave it to be a server plug-in
