Railgun
« on: June 12, 2015, 09:30:11 AM »
Anybody ever make a projectile like this? Was wondering what all goes into making a proper Railgun projectile.

it's not a projectile weapon it's a weapon that shoots ray that collision with walls I guess you would need to include that kind of behaviour in c++ in order to get it to work.

with scripting you could make the shoot work but only for the first entity to touch, that's because there are no lists in scripting, the problem might be that you might collision with a non monster entity and that would stop the ray (you could touch a light and the ray would stop at that entity (even when visually there are no obstacles there) so it might work but it could display some bugs.

There is a mod with a functioning rail-gun I think ( it was from the same people that made the hack and slash thrid-person mod for d3 with the female protagonists and the icon of sin monster), and also q4 has a railgun in the sdk

another interesting weapon would be a flame-thrower and a lightning gun that throw arcs of electricity like the one in Wolfenstein 2001

The Lightning fun idea sounds better. I'm looking for a secondary attack for my BFG. Would a lightning gun require the sdk?

Added a third one. No, I simply asked Google-sensei about railgun mods for Doom 3 :)

You can try them and let us know which ones work well ;)

Thanks for the help. I can surely learn from these and get something going for my mod. I was excited about a lightning like secondary attack for the BFG but a rail gun is just so much prettier.

it's not a projectile weapon...

Yes it is, a railgun is a gun that shoots a metal slug by means of magnetic coils, i think you are confusing it with raygun.  Crysis as a very nice railgun and it is very powerful (like it should).

I think he was saying it's not a projectile weapon in the way it's coded. Because it's not. He wasn't referring to the actual railgun.

I added it already but it's more like a particle beam that goes through enemies until it hits a wall because it's fired by the BFG which only uses energy and not slugs. Very cool.

I created and modeled a Railgun in Doom 3, for the Ultimate mod:

I don't think it's available any more though, but I could re-upload the mod, if there are still hosting sites somewhere.

yes I meant the games railgun not the real world railguns.  O0

oneofthe8devilz this railgun looks super cool!

I remember there was a mod (that mod that was a third person plataformer for doom3) that had a railgun with the spiral cloud from quake2 done with the doom3 particles which looked great I wonder how they did the spirals...
maybe they where done with short particles emitters that shot the particles forward (in the spiral fashion) and in front of them there was the next "segment" of the spiral effect (with another of those emitters) so the whole effect would end where the ray actually impacts?

Why don't you just upload your railgun assets and script for VGames, instead of just posting videos? You could have done the same with the turret in the other thread.
