TF2 Soldier Mod

Adds the Soldier from TF2, ready for any war that comes his way.

Overview

The Soldier is a mobile survivor that can use his tools to reposition himself, or aid his allies.

About

This mod is a work in progress! My experience with the mod creation process is very limited, so expect jank. Network functionality hasn't been tested much, so multiplayer may not function as intended.

SoldierOverview Something weird or unexpected happen? Did a bug I thought I fixed just pop up? Have some feedback regarding balance, ideas, or general questions? Feel free to contact and tell me!

To Do:

  • Add additional skins
  • Add a visual to the Disciplinary Action
  • Test networking more thoroughly
  • Make things look more pretty
  • Clean up code/implementations
  • Tap into the limitless potential of alternate weapons

Known Issues:

  • Animations are somewhat janky
  • Wax Quails don't impact Soldier's sprint jumps.
  • Certain animations may be missing in multiplayer. The player should be able to see them, but not others.
  • Rocket Projectiles might not line up with their "physical forms" exactly in multiplayer. (i.e., the rocket can look like it hit for no damage, when it actually misses)
  • Certain sounds may be missing in multiplayer.
  • Shotguns can now be used during certain actions. (Technically not an issue, but is unintended.)

  • 1.2.0

          • Increases damage dealt by 1.2x while active
          • Increases attack speed by 1.2x while active
          • Upward vertical movement (double jumps, knockback, etc) is no longer slowed/mitigated.

          • Reworked:
            • Shifted the ally-whip hitbox forward slightly.
            • Hitting an ally cleanses them of most negative effects (Cooldowns such as Bands, Safer Spaces, and Battalion's death resist does not count)
            • Hitting an ally grants the Motivated buff, with the following benefits:
              • 1.25x Damage multiplier
              • 1.5x Move Speed multiplier

            • Added a "Dueling" mechanic:
              • Hitting an enemy that shares an elite affix with you does big damage(5x and guaranteed crit) and has a chance to execute them outright (scales with luck).
              • Hitting an enemy has a chance to steal their elite affix (does not refresh duration of existing affixes, scales with luck).

        • Damage does 1.5x the usual amount, and counts towards as a regular crit for on-crit items like Harvester's Scythe!

        • Note* This doesn't apply to Soldier! Wax Quails (unintentionally) do not affect him.
  • 1.0.2
    • General Fixes
      • Made a potential fix for the issue where rocket jumping off of enemies led to more force than intended.
      • Applied a maximum force that a single rocket jump can apply. This is intended to make rocket jumping more consistent in general, and make jumping off slopes/map geometry not send the player flying.
      • Lowered Soldier's SFX slightly.
    • Manntreads
      • Tweaked values to compensate for the above fixes.
    • Base Jumper
      • Greatly increased the deceleration rate (i.e. You go from your falling speed to the parachute's "hovering speed" much faster, and don't accelerate due to gravity while active).
      • Slightly increased the target speed the parachute tries to set the player to.
    • Half Zatoichi
      • Fixed a few states where the Zatoichi was visible when other weapons have been fired.

      • Increased the velocity threshold required for activation
