Wings for the Gorge!Hey guys!
As requested sometimes before, at last in this thread: http://www.unknownworlds.com/ns2/forums/in...howtopic=115277 I made a Lerk Lift Mod which allows the Lerks to pick up Gorges and fly them to unreachable places or whatever you can imagine. It's a fun mod, please don't be too serious about it
Just go to a Gorge as a Lerk and press your use-key to pick him up. The Lerk can then drop the Gorge with the use-key at anytime but also the Gorge can free himself with the use-key if he thinks the Lerk is going crazy There are also tool tips and sounds if a lifting is happening.
Place the "LerkLiftMod.lua" file in "ns2\lua" and add to the beginning of "Alien_Server.lua":
Only install it if you host a server!
How it works:
It's a server only mod, so your clients don't have to install anything. You can also turn the mod on and off at anytime (also mid game) and you can set if it should be enabled by default if you start your server. So you can install the mod but you don't have to run it the whole time. Just enable it if you want some fun for a few rounds and if your players don't like you can just disable it without restarting. The command is "lerklift 0/1" to the server console. The variable for default starting is the first one in the script.
Under the hood:
It's intentionally not written as a game mod with a extra folder, instead you can install it directly to NS2 to keep GameOvermind or other mods running. I also didn't touch any single line of UWEs code. I implemented it only with unused functions in a extra script. The reason is I don't want to provide updates for every single new build and as long as they don't change the functions I used the mod should also work on future builds with out modifying (hopefully...).
Client prediction is not working and causes jerking to the Gorge because the client don't know anything about the mod of course. If somebody knows a solution without providing a client side mod please tell me.

Thanks to my testers from pub.eu! The mod neither affected the server performance nor it crashed it
