So I was playing another first person shooter today that I don't care for compared to RE. I just happened to download it the same time as RE. It starts with a X lol. Yeah it's alright but has no parkour. One thing I did like is that it had a jet-pack that allowed the player flight for a small duration. (Jet-Pack was a item/equipment model. Only Available in certain maps.)
After the fps in the 90's. Came a game called Starsiege Tribes. Their main goal was a 3d fps with vehicles/open world (Huge Maps) And their map editor. Now they have a new one out but no bots >.< Anyways.
I tried searching the forum for this discussion and it's only been a idea in off topic threads but nothing brought up about it. I'm still slightly new compared to the Veterans who have been here for years. But thought this would be a game changer. Like if you fell off map grounds if at the right moment you could have a chance to fly up and grab the ledge. Maybe by holding space after initial jump. I know most maps you can parkour your way up platforms or go up a ladder. But flying for say 4 to 6 seconds with propulsion is much more fun. In Tribes, it was all about timing. They had a slide parkour like RE. But they called it skiing. And if timed right with Jet-Pack you could land where you wanted. Or even if shot out of the sky you could have players just drop. I see there's already flame like particles and a animation. Just a idea and I think would gain some interests.
