    I think that might be one for the Brickfield Mod. Note the shottie equipped engineer has started to create his roadblock

    i think it would be great is engies could assemble some sort of barracade/roadblock type thingy, or even mounted weapon emplacements....

    More important than operating enemy vehicles, I'd love to see engineers capable of sabotaging enemy vehicles so they needed to be repaired by an engineer before they could be driven off.

    The equivalent of ripping out the spark plug leads

    It is silent (ish!) compared to destroying vehicles by C4 where the vehicles respawn in 5-10 minutes later fully healed, it will inconvenience enemies greatly and maybe encourage people to think defence rather than simply running to the attack continuously.

    You can still pickup weapons. You just can't drive the othe team's vehicles.

    and er.. the hotwiring argument.. hehe.... er.. ever heard of garrisons? Like as in gys standing around waiting to shoot people who come to hotwire their military vehicles? We don't want to create a requirement for that role in PR.

    And when a vehicle is found "in the field" in a modern military conflict you don't jump into it and drive off cuz chances are you'll get blown up by the booby trap or by the helicopter overhead who thinks you are an enemy.

    Engineers are getting a bit of an overhaul in the next release of PR, but it won't be arund operating enemy vehicles.

    as for the second, I would be strongly against - if you see and enemy vehicle, you destroy it

    An idea for engineers

    I was thinking the other day of a way to make the engineer class even more useful to a squad. Wouldnt it be cool if the engineer was the only class with the ability to drive the other sides vehicles?

    It would be handy every now and then to be able to hijack the enemy's tank or ride off in their APC to prevent them using it. I think it would add another level to the game, what do you think?
Working...
