Demoman Detpack/Voice Addition

For detpacks, you're able to grab a new pack off a fallen demoman. Was thinking two ideas;

1) Maybe a way to after a certain time, generate these with the engineers dispenser... say after 2 minutes of it being up n running and/or if an engineer/demoman throw their ammo bag in the disp. that includes a detpack(means the engineer would have to grab one from an a fallen demoman- maybe wrench the bag a time or two for it to be usable...)

Even more, when there is a detpack available in the dispenser, maybe an added model rises from the top of the dispenser that shows that there's one in there to grab.

2) When an enemy demoman dies with an unused detpack, in addition to dropping a bag, maybe add a new model showing a detpack wiring harness or something that looks a little different from a set detpack but similar.

Maybe also add a voice to the demoman 3 seconds before the detpack goes off saying something like "Get away! It's gonna blow!" or "It's about to get messy" or "Watch out, Incoming destruction" heh

Thoughts?

Detpacks get spammed enough in public games so I don't think there is need for a generating system of them. But I really like the idea of the demoman shouting "Get out of there,It's gonna blow" when the detpack is about to set off.

my thoughts too.

Detpacks are comical for sure but thats about it, there's never any skill behind using them them - esp with long timers. So I wouldn't want more :p

My thoughts were 'the more the merrier'

More stuff going on = more diversity on how to play.

In competitive play, setting a det can mean 3 things.
1 killing a would be flag-carrier.
2. spending valuable time setting the det, without proper pipetraps in place = losing a flag
3. killing teammates because of carelessness(overexcited about getting another detpack and placing in a bad spot)

Anyways...

that is true - there is a trade there.

You could generate new ones with cells.

But, its quicker just to die.

Detpacks can be nice in competitive play. Just killed the entire team? Sweet, lay your pipetrap, start reloading and set a detpack for 5-10 seconds (you can reload while setting a detpack! Hax!), and lay the final two pipes. Then run for the hills. This will usually kill the scout and probably a medic too.

Yup. Start reloading, and use the +detpack command to set it. The animation will stop but you'll keep loading pipes, and the detpack gets laid.

Hmm, Id rather see a fix for people joining a server midmap that sees wrong time displayed.

Or... Fix the reload issue where it's almost as if you get jammed and don't reload for a minute. <= maybe tahts just me.. autoreload doesnt ALWAYS work..

Can you clarify what you're talking about as far as 'time displayed', map time left?

I can't recall what happens correctly but one time I joined a pickup mid game and the time was messed up. I don't remember what was the problem but I think the clock started to go up instead of down.

Edit: Never mind that statement.

<@Mooney> there was 3 minutes on my screen when there was 7 minutes to be played

Yeah I think that's the problem.

If you join the game at the beginning of the map then the timing is right, but if you join after warmup round the time is off.

I've suggested before that the dispenser could be enhanced to provide health/armor/ammo/grenades (on fairly long timers) - giving the engy a new team-oriented defensive advantage, that isn't permanent. Or even a forward type 'base' for offense to work from.

Why not a detpack every once in awhile..?
