3rd person

<div class="IPBDescription">About it.</div>You may or may not know that there is a command for 3rd person and can be put it.
cam_command 1
cam_idealyaw 0

So will this stay in the game? Cause if it does then people will be able to look around corners as a alien. Of course this would not work for a Marine cause of aiming problems but I'm sure Aliens would love it.  
So basically my question is, will 3rd Person Command stay in the game or will it be out?

    isn't it already disabled in most MP mods ? there was a discussion about this, and it's not gonna be in the game afaik

    I know of a few that still have it, either because they forgot about it or wanted it in.

    This is always disabled in Multiplayer-modus, in mods where you can use it it was ENabled.
    You needn't disable it for a mod i think, you need to enable it. Or do you remember that you were able to switch to 3rd Person in HLDM?

    Example, the Vampire Slayer mod has it.  You type in the command and retry in console and then when u come back you will be in 3rd person.  

    Gangwars Mod had it to.. I assume others must have it but forgotten it

    I know CS doesnt

    Sven Coop had it before chasecam became a feature of it (read: You can bind a key to it now, and it works).
  • KnightmareKnightmare Join Date: 2002-07-19 Member: 974Members
    Yeah its a bindable command.  

    So Sven-Op deleted it after chase-cam? or still has it?

    Anyway, anyone on the team.  Will it become a command option?

    i highly doubt it would, it would make the game kinda one-sided for aliens wouldnt it? and isnt this game supposed to be about balance? if so, why would you want aliens to have an advantage? (basically what im saying it: whats the point of having it in if the mods about balance and it would make it easy for aliens?)
    *edit* er. yeah this is kinda what it would look like:
    <!--emo&:bob:--><img src="http://www.natural-selection.org/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/bob.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':bob:'><!--endemo-->  <!--emo&:asrifle:--><img src="http://www.natural-selection.org/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/asrifle.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':asrifle:'><!--endemo-->  i mean, if the alien could see around a corner it would be easy to sneak up on a marine like that... (basically what im saying is dont put this in, i dont like it... whoever thought of mini alien-cameras? if anyone should be able to do it period it should be researched by the commander and marines could then use it *edit*

    Maybe they could allow aliens chasecam to show that they have like, a really high degree of vision.

    3rd person is no fun anyway...

    Oh? So Jedi Knight II is no fun?

    erm, aliens have hive mind anyway - they'll often be able to see marines round corners/thru walls etc anyway..so why have thirdperson aswell?
    plus halflife 3rd person looks pretty shat imo
  • KnightmareKnightmare Join Date: 2002-07-19 Member: 974Members
    Ok, I was just asking.  I wasnt strongly suggesting it be in, nor was I strongly suggesting for it not to be in.  I just wanted to know if they had it in, or if they had taken it out.. and possibly I could of reminded them of the command and they forgot about it..  So no need to get hostile toward me.

    i don't think they left it in but then i wouldn't know i havent played the game yet.

    Mini alien cameras? Like small creatures that could aid the hivemind (but not aiding anyone's actual vision), worms or something.


    HL Roaches! Perfect!

    Neo must be causing a bit of a ruckus inside to cause <b>another</b> glitch.

    For about the six-millionth time, 3rd person is officially out for both teams due to the fact that you can see around corners. Thats the last word from the Dev Team. It could be explained quite easily with hivemind, super perceptive skills or little eyes on stalks but the official word is no.

    STC o'course.
