  • Is jumping like this okay?

    Is jumping up on a Sunderer this why okay?

    I wouldn't see myself standing on top of a sundie unless it was a rave bus, but I'm going to go with no on this one

      I don't think any part of this is explicitly detrimental to the game or hampers the intent of the vehicle by the developers. I don't see why it needs to have an official position as a result. Frankly, it can be seen as an abstracted form of climbing the Sunderer without animation.

      Either way I'd implement it occasional use as a form of protection from fairies, but one is quite vulnerable up there.

        You used to be able to sort of walk up the back, as if there was some sort of invisible "ladder" there.

        I don't see this as a Primer violation, IRL you would very likely have some sort of an actual ladder or some other way to climb to the roof, and spare loops of cable and other equipment are often attached to the exteriors of armored troop transports. And therefore this doesn't fall into "cheesy / exploity" territory, to me.

          I don't have a problem with it.

            There are some things that are not intended by the devs or maybe particularly seen in regular real life combat but it shouldn't stifle creativity. Much like I believe it was Stonewall Jackson's use of firing lines where muskets are fired, reloaded, fired again in almost assembly line fashion giving way to a force multiplier of almost constant fire on his enemies. I have no doubt the designers of the musket never thought of its use in such ways.

            I too am of the opinion that this is not an issue

            Good to get these vetted like this however. Thanks Mindkill for your timely response.

                  I do remember seeing a sky guard and an ammo sunderer on an enemy bio dome landing pad, waiting to engage any air targets the might need to land for reload and repair.

                  The way the game handles these events has since been changed, also the entrance to the bio domes have been blocked by some barriers and trees.

                  As for standing on a vehicle, I see no issues there.
