So one of the first things I did on gaining darkbows in Chivalry was figure out a way to make shooting easier, I think most people do this but I found my House's help scrolls on it kind of lacking in what I wanted. So I made my own. I love how it turned out and since I've started sending people script packages (mainly custom prompt tag additions to Svo) people have been telling me they really like it. Most recently @Wessux
questioned why I wasn't charging 10cr a pop for it. So I thought I'd post a little here about what it does. Not sure if this goes in the Arena or Scripting so I just went with Arena. Huge shout outs to @Maethros
(though I'm pretty sure he's dormant now) and @Grinidon
for being my pincushions through what I'm pretty sure was several thousand arrows worth of testing. Hope you all like what you see and if you want it, it works for serpent and I have a version that works on Omni as well.
It uses three different keybindings, the first, will locate the target, aim, and shoot them. The second just aims and shoots in that direction (taking away the time it takes to locate them which is only about a second but still.) And the third, which says "Screw you aiming, I'm a man and I don't need you!" and randomly flings arrows in their general direction at a slightly faster rate, but also allowing you to keep up defenses like breathing or shield while you do it.
"But what if they move?!"(or in the case shown below, you move) You may ask. Never fear, 'cause this happens. At which point you just try the location shot again and if you still can't find them, they've turned a corner! And for those of you who care, I did in fact just notice the lack of space in the not in line of sight echo and it is now fixed!
You may notice the echo is coloured, that's 'cause I'm using blue arrows! When I switch colours, the head and fletchings switch with me! This is my using undyed arrows and automatically calling a direction to the party. If anyone else in said party had this script and was targeting Wessux, they'd now be able to skip the locating key and just start shooting him right off the bat! Science!
Me shooting without aiming. The rebounding is just showing that breath can be pretty readily kept up since I have breathing gagged.
I should add that if they leave your room in any direction, including flying, you will also, not have to locate them and can just start shooting provided you have your bow out.
That's it! Tell me what you think! Any ideas for additions are totally welcome. If you want the package, lemme know! Hope you enjoyed!
