Since this takes place at a school I was wondering if you can pull pranks/practical jokes in the final version of the mod, can you? It seems like a rather funny idea XD

Good, bad, I'm the guy with a minigun, chainsaw, and a big a** cannon.
I'm a gamer at heart, but I'm limited by my surroundings...

Nice Idea! The only things I had in mind were weapons like stink bombs, eggs, slingshot, firecrackers and stuff.

Give an example and I can try to make it happen!

Tacks on teachers' chairs, bucket of water on top of a door, dog turd hidden in someone's shoe, filling a Watermelon with pudding and a few firecrackers... Anyway it would be quite funny to put those ideas into action, I think the appeal of the mod will increase with these ideas...

...stink bombs, eggs, slingshot, firecrackers...

These should be easily possible.

For the stink bombs, depending on how you want to trigger the explosion, you could just make a weapon that extends the LAM and make it do no damage, yet still cause some sort of frenzy or fear when it blows. If you wanted to get fancy, you could also spawn a particle generator for effects upon explosion of the stink bomb (although the ones I'm familiar with don't really "explode", so that might not be necessary).

For the eggs, you could make a simple projectile weapon that does no damage (unless you want it to) and spawns an egg yolky texture on the surface it hits.

The slingshot sounds like it would be the coolest to me. Again you would make some sort of projectile based weapon here. You could extend one of the many from Deus Ex or make one from scratch. The biggest things would be to get the speed just right (so it doesn't look like its firing a bullet or anything like that) and to get the animation/meshes to look good.

The firecracker might be your easiest weapon to make. All you really need to do here is extend the LAM; or better yet, copy the contents of its code, extend 'DeusExWeapon', and override the part that deals with attaching LAMs to walls. This works because the LAM is essentially a bomb with a set time (aka fuse) when you fire it not facing a wall.

Welcome DrKillJoy and thanks for the advice!

However my one and only modeler so far can only do static meshes sad

But we will figure it out soon!

I wanted to make the stink bomb emit gas like the gas grenade making the pawns rub their eyes, I will just make them say
barks like "Ohh yuck!" and "Phew! Who let the dogs out?!"

So for both the fire cracker and the stink bomb they will be the same but with a override of the code making them attack to walls and being times (stink bomb detonates on contact)

All these weapons will need new meshes to turn this into a total conversion. I have a modeler but not an animator sad

Anyone interested?

I like the idea of pranks and if we are struggling to get them to happen real time, perhaps, for example, placing a whoopie cushion on the teacher's chair could trigger a cutscene which shows the event of the teacher sitting down and making a rather loud farting noise.

This kind of thing is still good! Cannot believe I overlooked it. I added to my ideas as it will make time at school more fun biggrin
It won't be as high priority but I guess it could just be for fun or done as errands.
