Vehicles (plus a beta level)
Version: 0.17, by OtherChen (Hibernates every few months) OtherChen is offline
Developer Last Online: Aug 2018

Category: Version: SRB2 Rating: (7 votes - 5.00 average)
Released: 06-27-2015 Last Update: Never Installs: 5
SOCs Scripts Sprites/Graphics Is in Beta Stage

Robotnik dug out his old "Mega-Badnik 2142" blueprints and repurposed them into battle vehicles! They'll spawn naturally on most vanilla SRB2 maps, but you can always type spawnvehicle to give yourself a new ride in co-op mode. Press Custom 1/2/3 to exit a vehicle.

THE VEHICLES:
Spoiler:

TANK
Spoiler:
MAX HP: 120

CONTROLS:
Move/Strafe: drive the tank
Turn/Look: move the turret
Jump: jump and hover
Fire: fire a huge bomb ring (20 dmg) from the main cannon. Powerful enough to stun and spike other vehicles, break Knuckles blocks, and launch the tank backward a bit.
Fire Normal: fire a volley of bounce rings (12 x 3 dmg) from the gunner turret. The rings will disappear shortly after the first bounce.
Spin: hold while firing to make your shots arc instead of flying straight

ATTRIBUTES:
Break blocks and push other players by running into them
Going underwater will cause damage; entering slime will shut down the tank
Speed Shoes: faster ground and air movement, stronger hover

TIPS:
Use the recoil from the cannon to boost the height of your jump and maneuver in the air.
Hovering off a spring can take you great distances, but leaves you open to attack.


JET PLANE
Spoiler:
MAX HP: 60

CONTROLS:
Turn/Look: steer
Jump or Forward: boost
Spin or Backward: brake
Fire Normal or Strafe: look backward
Fire: fire twin automatic rings (2 dmg), or a single stream backward. Fire rate decreases over time.

ATTRIBUTES:
Crashing into things will cause damage, regenerates partially over time
Limited boost/brake/guns, recharges within 5 seconds
At low health, suicide-bomb by crashing while boosting
Speed Shoes: reduce boost power needed for moves

TIPS:
Use your speed and agility to avoid enemy fire, but watch out for obstacles too -- they can hurt you just as much as bullets.
Braking and shooting lets you aim better, but uses more boost power than normal.


MOTORCYCLE
Spoiler:
MAX HP: 30

CONTROLS:
Forward: drive forward
Strafe: drive forward slowly
Back: drive backward slowly
Jump: jump, drift in the air with Move/Strafe
Spin: skid
Spin + Back: brake
Fire: fire a double-barreled scatter gun (8 x 3 dmg)
Fire Normal: do a spin attack that reflects projectiles and deals direct damage (8 x 4 dmg). Double-jumping also works.

ATTRIBUTES:
Carry a shield to cut incoming damage in half and get bonus effects. The shield will break at half health or from a single powerful shot.
Overheal doesn't decay
Regenerate health quickly while standing still
Speed Shoes: reload the scatter gun faster

TIPS:
Spin right after a jump to gain more height. At high speeds, you can cross huge distances in the air this way.
You can turn sideways while skidding. Skid past an enemy and fire your scatter gun for a surprise attack.


SUBMARINE
Spoiler:
MAX HP: 100

CONTROLS:
Move/Strafe: drive
Jump: float (hop around on land)
Spin: sink
Fire Normal: switch between rapid-fire Grey rings (2 dmg), arcing bombs (10 dmg), or sticky grenades (15 dmg).
Fire: fire the selected weapon. On land, your weapons are replaced with weak, short-range Grey rings.

ATTRIBUTES:
Prevents drowning
Can enter lava, but takes steady damage
Can enter and sink into slime
Speed Shoes: move faster

TIPS:
Grey rings are great for open water, bombs work best on shorebound targets, and stickies do heavy damage to anything up close.
If you're stuck on land, try to stay at medium range from enemies and force them to retreat. Abandon ship if someone gets too close -- try to trick them into getting inside!


HELICOPTER
Spoiler:
MAX HP: 60

CONTROLS:
Move/Strafe: fly around
Jump/Spin: ascend/descend
Fire: fire a burst of Flame rings (7 x 2 dmg) that leave burning trails on the ground. Cannot fire underwater.
Fire Normal: drop bombs (10 dmg) that explode on impact.

ATTRIBUTES:
Limited fuel, shooting depletes fuel faster
Regenerates fuel on the ground, but cannot attack while refueling
Players can ride on the bottom of the helicopter, preventing it from firing
Cannot fly into the water; will take damage if forced underwater
Speed Shoes: reduce fuel consumption

TIPS:
If you're near the ground, never stop moving. A single shot from a tank or motorcycle could ruin your assault.
Keep track of high points in the map -- those are the safest places to refuel.


AMPHIBIOUS (Hovercraft)
Spoiler:
MAX HP: 80

CONTROLS:
Move/Strafe: move around
Jump: hover higher and fall slower
Spin: become transparent and move more quietly. Unlimited use, but reduces control and prevents shooting/healing.
Fire: fire a small pattern of automatic rings (3 x 2 dmg)
Fire Normal: emit a healing pulse (-20 dmg) to all vehicles in range

ATTRIBUTES:
Hovers over water, but cannot submerge
Self-heal when shooting or healing others
Speed Shoes: move faster

TIPS:
Accidentally touching lava or death pits will still kill you! You can hover high over them, but don't let go of that Jump button.
Need more firepower? Try overhealing an empty vehicle and using that instead -- just make sure an enemy doesn't steal it first!
In team games, your healing won't affect vehicles driven by the enemy.


KNIGHT TURRET
Spoiler:
MAX HP: 100

CONTROLS:
Move+Jump: move a fixed distance; hold Jump to damage enemies while landing
Spin: use rings to rapidly restore health
Fire: fire a charged burst of scatter rings (up to 28 x 3 dmg).
Fire Normal: rapid-fire bounce rings (3 dmg). Hold the button longer to increase fire rate.

ATTRIBUTES:
Can only take one action at a time
Cannot collect items from the ground
Shields refill your health completely to 150%
Overheal doesn't decay, except while moving
No knockback from enemy shots
Speed Shoes: move faster, can move while shooting or healing

TIPS:
Use bounce rings to take control of a room or discourage aircraft from approaching.
In CTF, try to stand a moderate distance from the flag to ambush incoming enemies. Keep stockpiling rings to store health for an emergency.




NOTES:

If your vehicle's health goes below 10, alarms will sound and the vehicle will start losing its last few health points. Get out before it hits zero or you'll die instantly!
Spin-dash into an enemy vehicle to damage it. The slower you're going, the more damage you'll put out.
Rail rings do 10 damage, but very little knockback.
Shield monitors heal the vehicle by 50%, up to 150% (except motorcycles). Entering a vehicle while wearing a shield will have the same effect, removing your shield in exchange for health.
Invulnerability monitors will give the vehicle 75% damage resistance.
Chaos Emeralds can enter vehicles, but Super players cannot.
In Tag, players who are IT will deal 4x damage to enemy vehicles, unless the vehicle is overhealed.
In team-based games, shooting a teammate's vehicle does reduced damage and no knockback.
In CTF, carrying the flag hinders your vehicle's movement and disables most abilities.
Killing a player in a vehicle earns you 100 points. Assisting in a vehicle kill earns 25 points, and healing someone who gets a kill earns 50 points.
The following CTF maps don't feature vehicle spawners (yet):
Spoiler:

Twisted Terminal (too small, probably won't happen)
Molten Fissure
Radiant Caverns
Iron Turret
Dual Fortress



CONSOLE

Commands:
howdoidrive <type>: cecho a vehicle's basic controls, the same as when you first enter a vehicle. If you're in a vehicle and <type> is unspecified, that vehicle's controls will be shown.
spawnvehicle <type>: give yourself a vehicle in co-op. Admins can use it in any game mode.
killvehicle: lower your vehicle's health to 5, causing it to self-destruct in 5 seconds. Jump out quickly, or you may as well have typed "suicide"!
vehiclefps: toggle the first-person weapon graphics. Useful if they block the screen or just look ugly.

Admin commands:
placevehiclespawner <type> <infinite?>: create a vehicle spawn point. If <type> is "?" or "random", it will spawn a different vehicle each time. If <infinite> is "I", the spawner will keep spawning vehicles once the old ones are moved away. Only lasts to the end of the map.
removevehiclespawners: remove all vehicle spawn points from the map, including automatically-placed spawners.

Variables:
destroyvehicletime: how long a vehicle can be left idle before self-destructing (default is 60 seconds).
respawnvehicletime: how long a vehicle spawner will wait before spawning a new vehicle (default is 20 seconds).
vehiclescale: size of vehicles, out of 100. Ranges from 10% to 1000%. (Marks cheats on the server)

KNOWN ISSUES
  • Exiting a vehicle puts "Toggled Chasecam" messages in the console.
  • Armageddon shield blasts destroy vehicles in one hit.
  • If a vehicle touches a Jet Jaw, the game will crash. As such, Jet Jaws have been removed entirely from maps.
  • A rare crash has been reported involving switching away from a lava map.
  • The tank turret and motorcycle helmet are occasionally visible in first-person, e.g. when running into a wall.

THINGS THAT AREN'T ISSUES OR OTHERWISE ARE DONE ON PURPOSE
  • NiGHTS sparkles vanish quickly, to avoid framerate drops caused by spamming bombs. This doesn't affect NiGHTS paralooping.
  • Hide-and-seek is not supported, due to the nature of the game mode.

On a side note, "in some ways"? No, that's an understatement, I'm a lazy piece of crap, as well as physattk losing popularity very quickly. Vehicles in SRB2? That will never get old.

Nice job otherchen.

Seriously HitCoder, as much as I don't like bashing on people that do this stuff, this isn't the right place. This thread is reserved for this mod here, so take that attitude elsewhere if you don't mind.

On subject of the mod, I think it's brilliant. VEHICLES in SRB2?

The last time I was as interested in a mod related to vehicles was Skywars with those jet things. This is pretty much a step up from all of that. LUA sure is awesome, huh?

All of the vehicles seem to have their uses, and since I last played, sprites seem to have been added for more angles. Awwww sweet~

...Either way, my favourite vehicle has to be the motorcycle just because of the fact you can combine that with the Shadow wad for maximum edge.

Though one complaint I could say about it is the fact that it gives you that weird skin and helmet no matter what character you are. I mean, even with Sylveon or something? ...Er, to be frank, I haven't checked with other characters at all, but from what I gather it is the case with multiple. I imagine this is unfixable, but it's a little thing that could be improved if possible.

Other than that, awesome work. This'll be fun in other gametypes no doubt.

"Armageddon shield blasts destroy vehicles in one hit."

...I think you can get around that by putting the MF_BOSS flag, they're not insta-killed by nukes, as far as I remember.

Default Drama? In MY Lua thread?

Thanks for the MF_BOSS suggestion, but unfortunately it won't work -- it messes with the vehicles' thinkers too much to be fixable.

I tried Tag in two-player mode and I think it works, but I didn't get a chance to test it online. If destroying a vehicle still doesn't count as a tag, I'll probably just eject players when they're hit. Saves a lot of trouble.

I noticed two issues, the first is that the bosses don't attack once you enter a vehicle and shoot them, like here:

The second is just me, but it'd be nice if I could shoot and break a monitor to get its contents, like with Eggman's laser, as shown:

And here's the Tank (as an example):

I put help messages in the vehicles now; hopefully they help clarify the basic stuff like "Use the Custom buttons to exit" and "Fly the jet with turn/look, not move/strafe".

Fixing the boss targeting wasn't too hard. I could do it for all enemies, but that would slow down the game considerably.
Long-range monitor collection isn't gonna happen. Drive that tank a few meters further, you lazy bum. (Actually, it's the same reasoning for which you can't shoot a monitor in vanilla Match: too overpowered.)

I tried to do a motorcycle run through every level in the game. It eventually crashed but it was fun for about two zones. Good wad you've got going here.

The game crashed? Or the bike?

If it was the game, what's your game look like and what other mods did you have?

So, I fought Egg Slimer in the tank. Apparently him tackling you in his second phase crashes the game (though I did fire a ring at him at the same time so that might've caused something).

EDIT: Also it seems the helicopter cannot regenerate fuel when above max health.

No four-wheeled vehicles yet, but here's a (mostly) stationary turret to camp your ass off with.

Both of the above issues are fixed, sort of. The Egg Slimer's second phase crashes SRB2 if its target isn't a player, and things can't target a player in a vehicle for some reason. So now it simply ignores you unless you jump out.

I'm still playing around with the jet's weapons; machine guns are the obvious choice, but it's hard to balance them out for a vehicle that specializes in evading attacks.

So something I found out while doing random shenanigans. If you turn Friendly Fire on (Maybe Ringslinger too. I had them both on) and use any of the vehicle's weapons. You will hurt and even kill yourself by firing it.

Hoping this is a bug. Kinda wanted to do Co-Op vehicles with friendly fire on.

Wow, nice work you've got here. Almost makes me want to actually play SRB2.

Ain't happening on my end; I've tried all combinations of those. In fact, I run friendly fire in my server when I host.

Are you using any other mods alongside this? I know Metal Sonic has a few ways to hurt itself with vehicles.

Oh that was it. I had Metal Sonic on. Good to know that it just WAD clashing.

Man. I love these things. Personally, I'd like it if the Knight Turret's rapid fire scatter lasted a bit longer. I can't wait to see what you add in next! :)
that is if you add more vehicles

The new vehicle yard map has tons of visual glitches in Software mode.

Wow, okay.

I'd like to say "it's 2016, use OGL", but obviously I'm doing something terribly wrong. Hopefully it's just the map size or a boundary issue that can be fixed easily.

I know this is pretty old, but is there intent of updating this? Otherwise, I love this, both in singleplayer and in multiplayer.
