Dam son... that's cool. That ability to basically steal a node is gonna be a game changer though. People will really have to watch the map (.... or wait I think only like 20 of us actually look at the map.)

Awesome.
Does it do any healing as well, or just build the node?

Might be interesting to have a heal nuke/painter type, that heals say 500pts of friendlies in the AoE. You could heal the mino from a distance...

it heals all players and vehicles instantly in the blast radius. I forgot to remove the code that also does the harming, so in the video you can see me getting damaged also. It probably should actually do healing over time but doing it instantly was the quickest way to test.

Currently it's pretty dumb and also heals enemies and power cores. :roll: that's an easy fix though

If it can flip a node like that, it's very similar to the orb in UT3. Should we just play UT3? :lol: In UT3 the orb is important enough to show up on the minimap. I wonder if this should also.

Opposite of nuke? maybe it should be called genesis? :D

That's pretty badass!!! The healing nuke I mean, definitely not Star Trek, lol those special effects look like they came from a Disney cartoon!

It should definitely be uncommon and a little difficult to find on any map it gets added to.

Some more name ideas:
- Lazarus Bomb
- Hand of God (every time it goes off, instead of an explosion you hear in a Southern Baptist preacher voice, "You're Healed, Amen!")
- Apollo Nuke (Apollo is the Greek god of healing)

With the ability for it to heal / swap nodes... just thinking of the devastation it would do to a map like spambox lol.

Super cool weapon Snarf, hope to use it sometime soon :)

So it flips locked nodes? Or on the spam box demo it destroyed/built the open ones, that triggered a chain reaction?
