Now that... that was just fucking awesome! The community needs new and original ideas like this.

I always wanted to play against a huge monster that needs tons of marines just to take him out.

Great Scott, this is amazing!

Hehe, for some reason I'm reminded of Halo 2's Scarab... perhaps a special mission where you have to fight this thing by some "alternative" means would be very handy indeed. ;P

Wow, not only is this a TRUE boss fight, but theres a lot of impressive manipulation going on behind the scenes. Can i ask how in the world you come up with this stuff? Does it start off as small experiments or do you periodically just have these moments of ACS genius?

Hmm... I think Mouse *is* ACS genius embodied. Or something just as mysterious. :P

I personaly want to know how you got all the individual parts to move in unison. ACS trickery, I presume, but what else would we expect from you? :P

The monster has evolved a number of times, soon to evolve again. The first "version" was when I started up on Power DoLLS for the second time, and split the Marauder into three actors. Then I adapted the ACS to make my snail crab for HQ2. The two were combined to create a monster for my second attempt at the Adessa hub. When that failed for technical reasons, it got retextured and ported into a different project as a naval ship/submarine styled lava demon. The Ultra Berserker was also born there, as a way of bombarding the "ship". That map got out of hand, so I gave the monster legs and moved it to yet another project. That project became so cannibalized I simple terminated it. The next generation of the monster is getting mecha shōjo'd/musume'd to be used in a personal project. As such, I figured I'd offer the existing one before it got archived and forgotten.

Wow. Awesome, and insanely difficult. I imagine getting all of the pieces to work in unison must have been a task in itself. [EDIT] Oh, I just noticed, when it got to low health, the turret underneath was in the wrong place, sticking out to the side. [/EDIT]

Just have to change a line of code to add additional players to the target pool.

Lines 246 and 247.
I *think* this is what it should be, but I don't know anything about MP so....
Code: Select allExpand view
Thing_ChangeTID(0, 255 + PlayerNumber());
FID = 254 + PlayerCount();

I forgot you'll also have to add the player starts in the map. Like I said, I don't MP.
