RPG Peek-A-Boo

 

Created for Hatch's Monsters & Missiles event.

RSC Link.  http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/jobs/job/EYo8_aCtHkSLShVh3jBtIQ

RPG starting weapon with plenty more RPG pick-ups to go around.

 

You are relatively safe directly behind the metal cabins, but if you stray too close to the gaps or near the back wall, you probably wont last very long.

The catch is, you can only fire your RPG from the gaps, so it's a trade off between attack and defence.

The infield is wide open and contains no cover or RPG pick-ups, but you are more than welcome to go for a Rambo run if you dare.

 

Rounds are set to 5 minutes maximum.  

They normally only last a minute or two each, so the target score has been set to three rounds.

 

Morning with clear weather works best for visibility.  

Other times of day make it too hard to see the gaps in the oppositions defences.

 

Thanks to all the people who helped test the physics and playability of this job.  :)

It would've just been guess work otherwise.

 

Oh, I nearly forgot.  It's locked to 1st person view.   Have a blast.  :D

This one is great fun and I actually wanted to play it last night with some randoms, but then realized it hadn't been published yet.  I enjoyed getting to test this in its initial stages, and the final, completed project certainly does not disappoint in any way.  Three rounds certainly go by fast, and I'd love to play this much like we've played R v I as it has massive replay value and never a dull moment.

 

I will admit though--I actually liked it better in third person, but that's just a personal preference as I'm generally shit when it comes to FPV. :)

 

Excellent work, Snacks--you have created something quite unique and highly entertaining.  The attention to detail is remarkable as well.

Simple and fun LTS.

I think the first person works well with this. Even if you don't like the first person on this game, it is easy enough to control with no disadvantage if you're not used to FP.

I thought it was fine in 1st person and I am a 3rd person guy. Good change of pace. Fun job that I will have in the vetting PL soon.

I love this job.  It's so simple, yet fun.  While testing this in third person, I was able to survive much longer.  In first person, I forgot how to aim an RPG properly and killed myself right away.  :lol:

 

This is a job that I could play in any camera view.  First person would get easier once I play it a bit more often.

Cool job!

 

I wasn't deliberately ignoring you the other night, I had DJ headphones on so I couldn't reply.

 

It worked as you say in the OP - Get too close to the edge of the cabins at your own risk, I found this out the hard way.

Excellent Job. It played out differently than I expected it to, but I think that made it better. I prefer 3rd person, but for this job I think 1st person adds to the fun. I agree it went very quick, and I could definitely load this just like RvI.

Great job Snacks :)

I played this twice with omarcomin71 last night.  We played with a few randoms both time and really enjoyed it.  It didn't hurt that we won :)

 

This would be really fun in a playlist with 12 people or more.

really like this map also, we played it on Tuesdays vetting PL ( I think it was then:) great fun, I would leave it at 1st person lock as well, adds an extra dimension and also makes the not soo big map (that's a good thing, tight fast action) feel bigger than it is.

Wow.  I'm really shocked at the response, guys.

I was expecting to get a few replies, but didn't think they'd be positive ones.  :lol:

 

The original concept for this map was intended for use with Sniper Rifles.

I though it might work with RPG's but wasn't really sure, so I'm very relieved that it seems to play out ok.

 

The map is very simple at first glance, but there was quite a bit of tweaking & fine tuning to get it to work properly.

Initially there was only one layer of metal cabins for cover, but after some early testing, we found that players could still be killed while in cover if an RPG hit the front of the cabin.

The back wall took some adjusting too.  Too far back, and it doesn't come into play.  Too far forward, and the blast radius would kill everyone nearby.

We even tried backlighting the cabins at night.  Even though it looked pretty cool, it just caused too much glare and made it harder to see to the other side.  

 

It's good to see people trying different strategies too.  Sometimes the advancing players get the win, sometimes they don't.  We've had a few good rounds play out so far.

Of course it still sucks if you get taken out by an RPG in the first few seconds of a round, but I can't think of any way to overcome that.  They're RPG's after all.  :lol:

 

The reason for locking the view to 1st person is so you can't just move your camera around to see over the top of the cabins.  It sort of forces you to take a risk/gamble everytime you take a peek through the gaps in your cover.  It's also pretty cool to see a rocket whizz by your head in 1st person.  :D

A host is more than welcome to change it to 3rd person if they wish though.  It could give a different feel to the job and may even see some different tactics used.

 

Thanks for the positive responses, everyone.  Glad you all enjoyed it.  :)

Any chance you can do something to this job?

The name Peek-A-Boo doesn't really reflect on the way it's played these days as everyone runs out in the open and to the sides of the map, obviously to make it harder to kill them.

IMO players shouldn't be able to leave the area with the cabins.

Hope it can be changed as I'm sure the gameplay would be better.

This and Glory Holes are my favourite crew LTS's, but I wish it was more Peek-A-Boo and less RnG.

Cheers, DC.

Yeah, ever since we've been able to pick up 20 RPGs the matches have played out differently than intended.  Before that we could only pick up 5 RPGs. (or a maximum of 8 if you had 3 and picked up another 5)

People were encouraged to run into the centre if they dared, and because they only had a limited amount of rockets they were often at a disadvantage once they were out of ammo. (which was often the case). The ensuing fist-fights with rockets whizzing past your head were always good for a laugh too. :lol:

I can't use a barrier as that would block the RPGs from being fired, so elevating both starting areas is probably the only obvious way to go, but maybe moving to a new location with natural barriers might work too.  I'll have a look around the map and see what I can do because I don't really like the way it's playing out now either.

Good to hear. I would love for my second favorite LTS to go back to its former glory :)

Looking the other way instead, What would be cool is an R&G style RPG LTS raised up on with like walkways like some of the new adversary mode style platforms? That way we can have both and improve both elements that folks like

That's definitely another possibility, Ally.  I was thinking of an area where players can move about a little bit, but with some low cover/obstacles that the opponents can aim at.  Stand too close to those obstacles and the slash damage will kill you, just like it does with the cabins in the current version.

Will certainly have to play around with things a bit without changing too much from the original.  Things might turn out ok, but it could end up being a dog's breakfast too. :lol:

      Bump's Adverse Tuesday
    • By Protocawl
      "DiRT Rally is the most authentic, challenging and thrilling rally game ever made, road-tested over 80 million miles by the DiRT community. It captures the essence of what makes rally unique like no other game: that white knuckle feeling of racing on the edge; trying to remain in control of your emotions as you hurtle along dangerous, undulating roads at breakneck speed, aiming to squeeze everything out of your car whilst knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time.
      It’s the ultimate test of a driver’s skill, and the ultimate in high risk, high reward gameplay.
      The first time you play DiRT Rally may be a little daunting. Not many drivers finish their first race without a crash, and even fewer will win their first event. The game is designed from the ground up to be an authentic simulation of real world rally. The good news for you is, real world driving techniques are applicable to every section of every stage in the game.
      A better understanding of rally driving techniques will lead you to become naturally faster as you gain confidence and understanding of the car you are driving and the surfaces that you are driving on. It is much easier to add speed to a good technique."
      Couldn't have said it better myself. Long story short: DiRT Rallly is probably the best rally racing simulation game out there. Brilliant mechanics and physics, beautiful graphics, great collection of iconic rally cars of past and present, plenty of different locations and game modes. Even the best racers can often make mistakes in rally and that's the beauty of the sport.
       
      Available Rally Types:
      Rally
      Hillclimb
      Rallycross
       
      Game Modes:
      (Tutorial videos)
      Championships (SP career)
      "Start out at the bottom and work your way to the top of the rally world. Hire a crew chief and engineers to build your competitive edge as you race the most iconic cars from rally history across the rally, hillclimb and rallycross disciplines."
       
      Online Events
      "Take on the DiRT Rally community via Daily, Weekly and Monthly RaceNet challenges to earn in-game currency rewards or take to the track in online multiplayer rallycross races."
      The online challenges are a great way to try out different vehicles in different locations and in different conditions.
       
      Leagues
      "Get together with friends and run your very own racing league, or join an existing one within the vibrant DiRT Rally community. You can join as many leagues as you like and they are fully customisable all the way down to the weather conditions."
      This is the mode we could make the most use of on the crew scale, organise crew rally championships.
       
       
      Locations: Monaco, Wales, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Greece, England (RX), Norway (RX), USA (Hillclimb)
       
      Some iconic cars from the game: Mini Cooper S, Renault Alpine A110, Ford Escort MK II, Lancia Stratos, Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500, Audi Sport quattro Rallye, Peugeot 205 T16 Evo 2, Subaru Impreza 2001, Ford Focus RS Rally 2001, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X, Volkswagen Polo Rally (2010s), Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak, Audi Sport quattro S1 PP
       
      Some official hints and tips for the game: https://www.dirtgame.com/uk/about#hints_tips
      The only thing I personally kind of dislike about the game is that you can't drive a specific rally car unless you've purchased it and that process can take a lot of time and trial & error, because earning money is rather slow in the beginning and you don't really know which car suits you best until you've bought them and tried them out. It's a very small issue overall, though.
       
      Verdict: DiRT Rally is a must-have for any true rally fan and rally simulation enthusiast, but if you're a casual gamer and/or mainly an arcade racer just looking to try out rally racing for a change, you should look into getting DiRT 4 instead. There is nothing arcade-y about this DiRT game - it's all about simulating the real thing.
       
      I'm interested in organising and starting an XDBX league in DiRT Rally, so if you have the game, do let me know! Skill level doesn't matter at all, just looking at having a fun time together!
      I know a few of us who have it: @Beez, @Dodge, @DavidCore89
       
      Here's a taste of what the game is like:

      Event Host: Squirrel
      Game: GTA Online
      Event Start Date: 15th May 2017
      Event Start Time: Monday, 9:00pm GMT/UTC
      (Monday, 5:00pm EDT / Monday, 10:00pm BDT / Tuesday, 7:00am AEST)
      Reoccurring: Fortnightly
      Special Rules: Contact Endurance Racing, No Shooting in GTA, Slipstream ON. 
       
      What it is:
      A bi-weekly endurance race based on real world tracks mirroring the real life Porsche Supercup. http://www.porsche.com/international/motorsportandevents/motorsport/customerracing/porschecups/pmsc/
      When it is:
      It will be held Monday evenings on alternate weeks to my Monday Madness event, it will also fall on the Monday where there's isn't a Sunday Racing League event the day before. 
      How does it work:
      The event will consist of a 3 lap non contact qualifying session followed by a contact race of approximately 30 minutes in length. If possible I will try get duplicate tracks made so a small 2 track playlist can be made, if not possible I will host the qualifying session and then the race separately.  
      The order for the feature race start will be determined by the finishing order of the qualifying race. The race itself will be run over a distance of approximately 70km. In each case this distance is converted into a certain number of laps for the classification round(s) and indicated for each event in the Supplementary Event Regulations.
      The race will have a warm up lap not included in the total race distance where the cars can get into their qualifying position followed by a rolling start for lap two. Pole sitter must maintain a reasonable speed on the warm up lap to allow for the pack to form behind them, full racing speed can start on the final turn of lap 1 but no overtaking until you have crossed the start line. 
      Point Scoring:
      Position 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th 11th 12th 13th 14th 15th Pole Points 20 18 16 14 12 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 2 What car:
      It will be a single make series, all cars must be the Comet Retro Custom. There are a wide variety of body styling and liveries available. http://gta.wikia.com/wiki/Comet_Retro_Custom  Failure to pick the right car means DSQ for that race.
