ok,

i would like to know if it is possible to make the rl model stay when my weapon script goes back to axe. i would like to keep it in view for aiming purposes... anyone know how to do this?

Yes. First take a look at weapon preselection. http://ezquake.sourceforge.net/docs/?weapon-handling. After you have weapon preselection in use instead of impulses, you can use cmd: r_viewpreselgun "1".

For example;
cl_weaponhide 1;cl_weaponpreselection 1;r_viewpreselgun 1

bind mouse1 +rocket

alias +rocket "weapon 7;+attack"
alias -rocket "-attack"

This will change your weapon automatically to sg/axe after you fire your weapon but it will still show rocket launcher in your hands.

that sounds cheaty, yet again the ezquake crew have brought some silly improvements to quake which they dont report loudly about or ask opinion should it be okay. even if it doesnt work with smackdown

To me it doesn't sound very cheaty, it's just a weapon model.

agree, seeing what weapon you have "equipped" is a cheat

weapon scripts that help you not drop important weapons is not a cheat though..

it's common sense, helloooooo???

Preselect gives "sg-script" functionality to players who use one button for +attack and n keys to select weapon. It's fair.

I don't get how on earth you could consider this a cheat...

i think it's silly to think ezquake dev should "ask for public opinion" before they add anything to ezquake

talk about slowing down development

but then again, for fuhquake users - slowing down ezq development is a good thing.

Haha

And since when should unpaid devs doing coding for fun ask for any opinion if they don't feel like it?

Why is it problem that it goes back to sg and not axe if you still see(and want to see) your RL model? If you really want it to go back axe, you can use stuff like this..

Rocket Launcher in hand after firing one shot but really having axe in hand:

r_viewpreselgun "1";cl_weaponpreselect "1";cl_weaponhide "1"
alias +rl "weapon 7 6 5 3 2 1;+attack"
alias -rl "-attack;impulse 1"
bind mouse1 +rl

But why bother if it's axe or sg in your hand because everyone else have shotgun already and you drop all your ammo anyway.

And using axe when everyone else has SG means your opponents could identify you in a 4on4, so if you get first rl on e1m2 and someone hit you with 3 or 4 SG hits, there's a good chance you'll be flooded and you'll lose your team's first RL because they could identify the only RL carrier early. Even if 2 of your opponents use axe opposed to SG, it's still dumb because 50/50 is still a damn good chance of guessing who has the RL.
