Howdy friends! Al from Alabama here just chimin in my 2 cents. Sure would like to see more cannons in the maps, especially the castle maps. Nothin funnier than lobbing a big cannon ball towards the enemy and watching death occur. Hell, once on BG1, i killed 4 people with 1 shot and nearly upchucked half my cold beer through my nose as i was laughing so hard.

This man speaks the truth. Cannons are definitely more fun.

We actually are looking at bringing on some cannon and artillery. The thing is we would need to get the physics for the projectiles right. What I had in mind more is a "grape shot" style-- instead of one big cannon ball it would fire like a giant shotgun-- many small balls come flying out to injure or kill the other team.

It would call for larger maps though. And everything would have to be changed to balance it.

Cannon fixing probably has been discussed to death but here's my two cents.

Have it so the cannon ball spawns from the cannon. If it hits the torso, stomach or head it's a kill, it hits the arms or legs it's a 90% quitter. It travels 75% slower than the musket balls with decelerating speeds. Then it has collision properties with world props, but not players so it can effectively plow through multiple people running in a straight line). And then after a set amount of time the prop will de-spawn.

I also had a funny idea where you could actually make a server-side setting for how "elastic" the cannon-ball is. Imagine rubber-cannonballs bouncing all-over the place.

Just got done playing that trench war map on the 51st server. Used the cannon to kill a shitload of people, mostly my own team. After one shot, hamburgler said i killed so many european's, it looked like the holocaust. HAHAHA Cannon's r the best part of the game.

p.s. will the admin for the 51st unban me?

I remember a very old map that had cannons you could push around and choose between grape shot and solid shot.
