Configuring the damage of head/torso/foot shots

The default damage areas are 90(feet)/100(torso)/110(head) (correct me, if that's wrong)

IMO it would be better if the hit zones could be configurable (perhaps in an extern .ini)

So some servers could make themselfes headshot-only, where hits at the torso or feet don't do any damage or something else...

Please post your opinions!

that would probably be a pain in the ass to code, but it's a neat idea

I wanted to have that for a long time, since it would be so much easier to be more creative and make weapons that kill on headshots...etc. I'd go with something like:

BaseDamage: 160 (This is the actual damage value)
HeadDamage: 150 (This is a percentage)
TorsoDamage: 100
LegDamage: 50

So Headshots will do 240, Torso will do 160, and Leg will do 80...etc.

Congrats on your 1000th post Leo!

I love this idea, as long as the server appeared as a weapon mod server in the lobby, and a server message would be sent out to a user when they join the server concerning the new values.

R/S servers would kill for this.

It's hard to actually aim for the head..

It'd be too easy for auto's so their percentages would have to be close to eachother

What? I can do values configurable like that with Delphi in 5 minutes.

should be and option in weapons.ini.
I can already see headshot only servers :o

That would be a neat idea, but well however as soldat's are so small autos would take out all. The barret would actually become skill in a headshot only server.

Oh what about explosions?

explosions affect the whole body. If the percentages for damage still added up to 200%, there would be no difference.

Well concerning the explosions you could just set the main damage lower!

I think to code it, you just have to calculate it like that:

(ak47, lets say 25) then x (head x 2.00 - for 200%) = 50
if you just hit the torso:
(ak, lets say 25, again) x (torso x 1.00 - for 100%) = 25

i think the variable that calculates the damage could just be replaced, right? :?
