BA Scaling Steep Inclines
« on: March 10, 2010, 07:37:18 PM »
This has become a problem when playing on Inferno and Marshes.

I'm finding that when trying to jet up steep inclines, I just don't go, or I go far less distance than my fuel consumption would suggest.

I think this is due to the, "landing," sequence that cuts sliding.  While very useful in most situations, the intermittent contact with the ground means this sequence cuts my momentum, both forward and upward.  While it can be overcome by simply jetting upward and then forward, it's a layer of complication that reduces survivability.
Thanks for the view.

Its the combo of holding W and jetting at the same time. Holding W makes you jet forward but if your behind a hill you end up jetting into the hill and getting stuck. I suggest you press space and then after you have a little bit of height then hold W.

Also a problem with mechs: if you jump with forward momentum your feet can get caught on any ridge and stick you in place unable to lift off, wasting JJ juice, heat and time.

Could it be fixed by prohibiting the landing sequence while jump jets are firing?

I have noticed in the cougar in particular that when running at max speed on flat terrain and hitting jj I lose all forward momentum. rather unrealistic. mechs like the osiris doesn't seem to have this issue. As I have not tested this with all jj capable mechs, any and all comments and observations are welcome.

My thought is it is more noticeable in small/med due to faster ground speeds over heavies with jj so the differential is much less with heavies.

I can confirm on the cougar, it seems to be the only mech that has this problem, but I have not played the Osiris yet.
