Is it possible to code in a ballistic shield item?
I'll donate for this.
We have one from HL2 but it's a rather strictly HL2 looking item complete with Combine logo and futuristic shape, though perhaps a reskin could work
The existing one from HL2 would work yeah, though I wouldn't exactly say it fits into TRP as a setting.
You'd need a solid 500 sheets of expertly folded unobtanium to stop half the guns on TRP surely?
If anything I'd want to design something new and funky.
Kinda like what Kruger has in Elysium. An energy shield that fits on his wrist device that can be turned on/off
Not using the combine one again
Besides with the amount of huge weaponry in TRP....a simple ballistic shield wouldnt achieve jack shit
So yeh, something new and interesting pls
no dave plz :<
E: I'd actually be down for that but something wrist mounted might be a bit overpowered? Maybe something heavy that requires both hands, otherwise everyone and their grandma is just going to be running around shooting 1 handed plasmas and blocking themselves with wrist-force fields.
its easy. just do what we did in hl2: dont rp getting shot
Dave is right. An energy shield sounds cool as fuck.
RevivalAd if you want i could assist you with donating becaus i also would like some art of shild you could use
i want a damn r6 style pistol and shield combo script that allows me to block all damage that hits the shield while enabling me to fire around it with the pistol is that too much for a man to ask
just use polonius as a shield his density will stop everything
whats the point?
theres a adv dupe of a shield somewhere
use that instead
The existence of energy shields could cause power creep that may be regretted down the road. If they exist in the hands of humans it is probably from scavenged or repurposed SkyNET tech. So there would be drones with shields. Which could be cool but I bet some would be against it and it is something that should be carefully considered. Maybe this same energy-shield tech could also be used to create energy swords. Just a thought.
If you go with the energy shield anyway, the way to balance it in roleplay could be that the kinetic energy is still transferred to the wielder. So it could take a stray round or two but if you try and tank through a 600's minigun it will turn your arm to jelly. Using it with some sort of arm brace or full on exo-suit that could spread the force out over a wider area, or as part of a stationary gun emplacement where it can be bolted to the ground is an obvious strategy to minimize the disadvantages.
tnb isnt ready for foreshadowing just yet
Im just posing the idea anyway.
Everyone should know by now that we like to promote new technology on TRP , new ideas for cool stuff - as long as it isnt totally out of the realm of possibility, im fully game for it.
Could picture it like a Jackals energy shield from Halo or something. Magnetically held plasma off a internal power-source in a gauntlet. Takes a few rounds before shorting out and requiring ether a new power cell inserted, or a recharge period, when used by a human.
For drones using it would come directly from their internal power and thus be more sustainable, in script terms could have double or triple the "shield HP" or something.
If you're going to donate for it, it would be very nice if Charlie could be involved in the research of it. I'd be more than willing to help execute it.
My biggest gripe with new weapons is them just appearing one day and i have to explain why we had a ton of 60+ watts circling about when we couldn't even convert 50 and 55s. (And the three or four converted 55s around before that.)
It's up to you in the end of course.
Just block the bullets with a prop
Don't listen to Wizard.
Slip $10 in my paypal and Charlie will make up your item's R&D on the spot.
As if we dont do that for every single project
Maybe heres an idea for a new breed of Terminator drones then.
Perhaps we could give it to the T70s or something. A personal shield bubble swep that they can equip to get in close before changing to weapons and opening fire.
And from there, TechCom can get the technology and reverse engineer it.
Just thinking aloud.
Give it to T-720’s
So you want to add droidekas?
Holy shit, if this happens I’m going to suck start a shotgun
You've convinced me. Droidekas were the coolest part of the prequels. $20 to any dev who can script a working droideka.
The T-70 already has insane damage reduction. Maybe for T-20s to make them actually useful in some way.
Hot take: t-20's and widows are a giant meme whose sole purpose is "shenanigans"
shaggy will be promptly repurposed as bloodworths electric scooter

I will hunt u cuntlips
GIVE IT BACK NOOWW
yall just weird
I mean Dave... You are the man here. You can make it happen and I can donate for it. Only for me.
Just use this dupe and everything will be fine
