[release]A simple little addon that lets players rappel from buildings and similiar things to the ground without injury.
Theres 2 pictures at the download and a video at the bottom of this Post[/release]
Hold USE + WALK and move off a high building and ledge, You can move off Backwards or Forwards. -- By WALK, i mean the freakin walk key, not your silly WASD keys. -- While rappeling your view is limited to 40 Degrees left and right. -- Let go of use while rappeling and press use again to detach yourself from the rappel. -- Hold jump while rappeling to decrease slack, making you stop rappeling and be able to turn around 360 degrees. -- While holding jump and looking at the wall your rappeling down, You may hold the FORWARD key to climb back up, You will automatically dismount once your high enough to get up the ledge.
Bind a key to +hook -- Holding your hook key, While near a wall and facing it, Look at the edge of roof/ledge, The cross will turn green to indicate you can hook onto it. -- After you are hooked to the wall, you may start climbing, First HOLD FORWARD and then HOLD JUMP after that. You will start to climb. -- While climbing, You can do anything you do naturally while rappeling, Let go of jump to start rappeling down, Hit use to detach.
While climbing a wall, you cannot fire. You must stop climbing to fire your current weapon.
Once you give the rappel more slack (Let go of jump) you will go back to being limited to 40 degree left and right fixes.
You can shoot the attachment part of a rappel (The part attached to the building) to break it, Making the rappeler automatically detach and fall.
(NO, The SUPER high building on gm_construct cannot be rappeled off, Its not a solid brush.)
