The state of the Jumppack
#41
also its been talked about before just not on here but hopefully if the rework reduces power of the jetpack, the price should also come down since there’s plenty of complaints from guests that they need 50k more (which can be easily gotten, but is still something I hear frequently)

I know your goofy ass didn't post that picture for me. Because I know I'm right. If you dont believe me go run a solo server and spawn some boxes in sandbox mode and crouch into the ceiling and then feel extra dumb with yo goofy name stealing non-party attending no chin having stupid headass. Get the hell on boy.

this genuinely fuckin killed me i cant stop smiling 

what i mean is that yes, its a source issue in general but that doesn’t mean we need an overhaul of the engine, the instances where someone pokes their head in the ceiling without a jumppack are not only few in far between, its also so brief that it doesnt really matter; the issue with jumppack ceiling spam is that it happens almost every fight, and guaranteed happens multiple times per round. just making sure that the jumppack’s jump isnt high enough to abuse every space below 7’ in height is enough to fix a major gameplay issue, not rebuilding how crouching works

also the rework currently on the test server uses the most popular maps as a basis of how much the power should be reduced in order to make sure people cant crouch jump (not just jump) to stick their head in the ceiling, it’s still on there if you wanna test it yourself

Play somewhat nice, it’s getting obvious that this is a touchy subject for certain individuals

For anyone wondering what reducing the power of the jet pack to 8 would look like when fighting someone take a look at this video https://youtu.be/PgHCgWk1Eb4 (sorry for the quality). It still is the jet pack and allows for the same movement with it, but just makes it a little less crazy to fight against for players cause they’re entire torso isn’t in the ceiling anymore. And if you want to feel how the jet pack feels after the changes hop on the test server and try it out sometime.

Oh I know the rework will fix more than a handful of the problems players are having right now. I just wanted to send a dickhead post before i went into work  Tongue . But the crouch bug is still indicative of deeper issues within the engine that honestly noone in their right mind would try and tackle. (I only know of one guy personally who did the whole gamemode rework and he literally quit gmod all together and set his profile to private for everyone about a year and some change after completing it. Lord knows what he saw in this games patchwork code.)
