Planned feature: Parachute

Post by Hjarpe » Tue Apr 05, 2016 11:34 pm

This came from an idea discussed in this thread -- thanks to The Adventurer and the other contributors!

-Found in supply crates.
-Fills the powerup slot just like slo-mo.
-You can only have one parachute at a time.
-One-time use.
-Activated by pressing 5 when in mid-air (jumping, knocked down or diving).
-Apart from slowing your fall, the parachute puts you in a special falling state. You can move horizontally, as well as speed up or slow down your descent with the arrow keys. You can also melee, shoot and manual aim as if standing on solid ground.
-Lasts until you land, the parachute is destroyed, or you deactivate it by double-tapping down.
-The parachute will be damaged by bullets and fire.

Melee?? Wow. Here's a little inspiration for a campaign mini boss (edit: starts at 2:25):

edit 2: not saying it should be a machine, but it would be cool to fight someone or something during a parachute fall.

I don't think it's been discussed yet, but I added melee in there because if you can manual aim as if standing on solid ground, it makes sense to treat all attacks as if you're standing on solid ground. But we'll see. It's a recent idea so a lot may change :)

Melee while using the chute sure sounds fun, makes sense to me if you're free falling.

I can imagine actual combos coming out of this.

Jump attack, right after it connect to knock someone down, parachute and jab, then double tap down and do another falling attack. Grounded kick after you land and punch once more.

Hopefully the mechanics at play allow for this.

I was wondering, since the parachute is gonna be more durable, if there's a damage/fall buffer ratio so depending on the damage done to the parachute, the user will fall faster, making timing imperative, and control absolutely nessecary.

Also when the parachute is destroyed, the player will instantly fall from that point onward (with not graceful recovery).

If you fall too fast with the parachute, will you get damaged?

Something that's been on my mind, if I was falling in a uncontrollable state like if I was kicked off a platform would I still be able to active the parachute?

I'm assuming "knocked down" refers to the freefalling state when you get kicked or punched off a high place, the "uncontrollable state" you're talking about.

First, i think one handed weapons should be the only ones useable while parachuting. As for melee, i think only one handed melee weapons should be useable here, too. ( Knife, Machete, Pipewrench, etc. )

Also, IMO i don't think you should be able to use a parachute after being knocked down or diving. But if you are going to be able to use a parachute after being knocked down, i think you should atleast have some problem to stabilize yourself after that.

Other than that, would be a fun addition.

There should be a limit to how much the para can handle as in if you have been falling for a certain distance/height then the para should take more time to stabilize you/slow you down, and maybe if the height is really huge then the para tries to slow you down for a bit, and if you hit the ground during that time, you receive half the normal fall damage, and after trying to stabilize(as mentioned before) the para just rips in two due to velocity or something like that. Then fall damage is set depending on.the height from where the para ripped in two.

I'd like it if it was a just a get out of jail free card for if you're about to fall into an environmental hazard. It'll give you a second chance in-case you react too slow and someone insta-kills you with a grapple into a big pit- instead of falling in, you can parachute to safety.

What about if you fall with a parachute you will still be able to shoot Just Cause style from it but the weapoons you will be able to use will be from second slot (UZI, pistol, magnum etc.), but you will still be able to shoot your own parachute too. And if someone shoots it you won't insta fall and break your legs, you will just fall faster, and after the first shot was done you can now get damage from flying down (depends on how many holes your enemy made in your para: 1- 5dmg, 2- 20dmg, 3 - 30dmg, 4 - 50dmg, 5 - parachute is broken). Also how about wind?
