Harking back to firebugs... teleporting portal

Postby spotter-acus » Sat Apr 30, 2016 8:46 pm

Now I know firebugs was a different dev and they had a different attitude towards player punishment but they did have one really neat stand-out pick-up: a catch-up portal/warp.
Basically, after activation, it would be held in front of the car as it charged and grew in size. Once big enough, it would create a portal a couple of places(but never first)/a certain distance ahead from the spot it was fully charged at, propelling the car the created it and any that managed to get in before it dissipated (generally seemed to hang about for 3-5 seconds.)
It was a genuinely cool and brilliant tool to keep the race changing and exciting. Also the sound of it was fantastic.
I'd say it's something to look into, especially now we can have proper portals.

the problem whit this power-up is you have no clue where you end up. In RC2 it was a really big risk using it, especially when you don't know where is your opponent. Sometimes you can end up on a wall, drive off course or fly off the map "cough" Leviathan "cough" . Also when somebody else use it (+the annoying AI) it's really hard counter it, if you don't have a weapon.

Amen Potty (those measure would tame this pick-up best).

Also agreed with Cybruiser57Péter, but if players want to take the risk to be throw somewhere in the sky on the... hehe... Leviathan map, I say why the hell not. Suits themselves.

Thanks.
Yeah certainly in Firebugs, they had a maximum jump distance (heck, they hay have had a maximum place jump, too - I haven't analysed it that much) but aswell, it wasn't a blue shell. You could just end up helping the people behind you and it took so long to charge up, it pretty much too you by surprise every time you jumped (note:it was a pretty rare pick-up) also, it wasn't guaranteed to put you in a nice safe spot - you could easily end up smashing into a corner because you couldn't plan for it.

Well if I really want to see something similar to the wormhole from RC2 or firebugs my bet is on the Lego race version ().

I think the weapon could work as a catch up weapon, so it would be handed to players in the last places more frequently and never to first - third (depending on amount of racers of course)
