I’m an experienced tank and equipment builders (youtube.com/dvdprui) with a little bit of E2. I’m currently looking to build a tank (I use the term LOOSELY…it could just be an armored buggy, or a hover-tank, an armored car, whatever) using Gcx & Gcombat (I also use KGCX and GDC) Primarily for EXPORT, meaning for server wars, clan wars, etc. I want something with the best traits for winning in gcombat matches, based on what most people win with.
Essentially what I’m asking is what is your most LETHAL vehicle(s) for gcombat, and WHY. Furthermore, what traits do you like.
So far I’ve compiled basic information. This bars the obvious (keep it under 50 props and don’t use mods/models that won’t show up on most servers)
Mouse aiming is a necessity; better aim is essential.
Heavy armor is nice but doesn’t compare to speed and maneuverability.
Composite armor is nice as well, but only in small amounts.
A suspension helps (I make torsion bar suspnesions all the itme for tanks)
Maneuverability and speed is essential.
Like in kung-fu movies, “He who can fly, usually wins the fight”
Walker legs are vulnerable; hover tanks are fast
Fast firing weapons = win; modular designs able to be quickly rearmed = WIN
Gcombat and GCX are the norm; GDC and KGCX are rare.
You might not want to make yourself very apparent in your turret, else one mg round kills you.
Guided missiles make real nice one-shot kills (I’m an expert on guided missiles, and I can make GCX missiles under 7 props)
Any suggestions will be taken, and when I’m done I’ll release an adv dupe with everything. I’ve already released a half-track kind of for the same purpose as this, designed for mobility and speed.
