Default Request: The Fifth Element's ZF-1, in Tribes 2.

The Fifth Element is one of my favorite movies. One scene includes a really cool weapon with many deadly modes. This is called the ZF-1, made by the character named Zorg in the movie. My only goal in this thread is to see if any good mod creators are able to recreate this weapon in Tribes 2. I've provided information below to help create this weapon, if anyone chooses to.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pxjnl1yuXk

WEAPON NAME: ZF-1

Listed below you'll find the mode name, some extra information, and my own ideas of how it would look in Tribes 2 when considering the projectile and the effect of each mode. Each mode name and any extra information are taken directly from the movie as Zorg describes the weapon. Also, the order of the modes is accurate with the movie description.

The projectile and mode effects are simply my own ideas given out to help with the creation of this weapon in Tribes 2, if it's ever made. They are there for an initial idea of how to replicate the movie's weapon into Tribes 2 as accurate as possible. Smarter and more creative ideas are encouraged.

Mode 1: Titanium Recharger
  • Extra Information: Zorg mentions a 3000 round clip with bursts of 3-300. Replay button: one shot, and replay sends every following shot to the same location.
  • Projectile: Just a bullet. Perhaps the first targeting shot would be a larger bullet than the replay bullets.
  • Mode Effect: Similar to a chaingun: enough shots and the target dies.
Mode 2: Rocket Launcher
  • Projectile: It's a rocket launcher.
  • Mode Effect: An explosion.
Mode 3: Arrow Launcher
  • Extra Information: Before Zorg fires the ZF-1 in this mode, you can see a count of ten arrows for his following shot. He also mentions that you get the choice of explosive or poisonous gas arrows.
  • Projectile: I don't know what would be a better projectile rather than the regular Chaingun projectile.
  • Mode Effect:Enough shots and the target dies.
Mode 4: Net Launcher
  • Projectile: I have no idea.
  • Mode Effect: I believe that once the target is hit, they lose all ability to change mobility. They can't jet, and their player will follow in their current direction due to momentum until they are naturally stopped (it's as though the person themself simply let go of their keyboard and mouse when hit). I wouldn't see any damage from this mode except from fall damage.
Mode 5: Flamethrower
  • Projectile: A long flame.
  • Mode Effect: It burns.
Mode 6: Ice Cube System
  • Projectile: A mist of white or cyan.
  • Mode Effect: After enough consistent aim, oer after enough hits in a certain amount of time, the target will become frozen in place. My idea is that it'd look similar to a hit with the Electro-Static Pulse with the Super Chaingun.
Feel free to provide your own ideas to how each mode would work and look best in Tribes 2. Give opinions of any kind.

I had wondered when someone would finally make this post. I really like the layout, seems ever so convincing, interestingly.

Aah, I love how pissed of they get with the deal, Anyways, it seems like a very convincing project to set hands on.

Hah, the Ultimate Admin Weapon for Extreme Punishment Only

But no really, This would make a great set for some sort of gametype.
It would be nice to see if anyone actually follows through with this.

First Off, That post is ridiculously gay in every way, and should be deleted.

Secondly, I was chatting in hex. If you don't know what hex is, look it up.

Thirdly, I have no idea wtf you're talking about with the shrike, I didn't use one vehicle while I was there.

Lastly, I timed out.

So don't go on a freaking rave spree just because of assumptions that are wildly false.

This is kinda a random, off topic way to get after Phantom for something personal. Considering I took a little more time on my topic's post, I wouldn't want this thread getting locked because you fail to use a private message. Don't cause an argument here.
