Nice. Put it on MassDestruction so when people sneak into your Ion Cannon, you can dispatch them quickly.

Use the bio tank. Drive it down the front ramp to outside, turn around and point up (must be in 1st person view) and lob alt fire blobs over the manta parking area. You can't see it but they're hitting the ion cannon.

I will add the other bombers to MassD when I get a chance. Good place to test them without breaking a map, and I think they will all fit in the back of the cores.

"F'n Termi" is gonna hate this, LOL

Naw not really. I've spected games where the enemy was in the ion cannon almost the entire round and nobody seems to notice or have a clue. It's hilarious to me.

I suspect the bio bomber will really though kick the crap out of the MAS that are bio vulnerable... Kraken/Tiamat etc... so Termy won't like that.

Before the nerf, one volley of bio bomb drop killed the levi.
After nerf, depending on splatter about 5 volley of bio bomb drops kill a levi.

Kraken, Tiamat, Mino, Pallas take 3x (5x?) damage from bio so it's going to hurt those guys

Additionally fire tanks take 3x from bio goo.

New version available! Download here CSBomber_1.0.5.zip

Changes

- make guppy bombs follow momentum
- make bio bombs follow momentum

Easier to explain with picture

before/after

While spectating I noticed everyone trying to 'swing' the bombs at the target, but they don't work that way. With the old version if you want to hit something with bombs, you must be directly over it when bomb is released. This change makes the bombs behave like other bombs in the game.

This is good, I remember seeing the perpendicular drop and thought it was kind of weird. We're all so used to the dragon.

Loaded on the server. One thing I noticed the bio gobs sometimes stick to the biobomber if you drop flying straight and level...
