Well... Tarydium is a mineral that isn't that... popular. I believe the shards are in some extent possible, large tarydium crystals... Well, I can do that.

The tarydium titan scoops up the rocks from the ground, but shoots the spikes from his body. It wouldn't really make much sense for him to be throwing tarydium rocks unless the floor was covered in tarydium.

Although that does sound kind of kick-ass.

Sorry. MonsterHunt for ut99 has jaded me somewhat.

Titans and StoneTitans throw rocks.
MetalTitans throw metal.
LavaTitans throw molten rock.
EnergyTitans, weird bugger, throws energy.
etc, etc, etc.

That is so awesome. I'd rather see them put to good use in a custom map pack than dropped into unreal via mutator but either way that is so sick

I'm glad I suggested the Tarydium Titan, it came out great! While I wasn't counting on you adding new attacks to the classes that's also something I've wanted to see for quite a while.

I'm having quite a fun doing this and I'd be glad if you gave me more ideas XD
Skaarj - later,
Humans with armors - maybe today if time is at hand.
I was thinking bout a lighter version of Titan - storm.

@Jackrabbit.
Dunno, what is this?

1. If you're looking for more Titan ideas, I just want to specify that the main reason why I suggested a Tarydium Titan was not to propose that we go the route where there is elemental versions of every monster (Borderlands style) but rather because it always seemed, to me, the next step from Stone Titan. There's something about these creatures that always put in my brain this idea that they have extremely long lifespans that long duration in a particular habitat has biological effects on them. I phrased some of this in that fan fiction I wrote back in September '09, if any of you recall.

For me, the next step after a T.Titan would be Titans under Skaarj influence, as in armor fitted and things like that.

2. For Humans, obviously having a 3rd person viewable of the Unreal pawns wearing armors and suits would be interesting. It would make COOP more interesting, but also be a very big element to deathmatch, as I see it. Obviously, I think SP users would want to see this as well, though I'm more interested in as a level designer.

3. Jackrabbit...what were his parents thinking?

Well... Let me put it this way...
"Have you thought about kids?"
"No, dad... And you know what happens when one doesn't think..."

Player armors - Yep, gonna do this.
Titans with armors / weapon attachments - Yep, gonna do this as well.

Wanted to make a swamp titan, it would throw big GES blobs and with stomp it would burst GES all around him... I guess that would make him quite deadly.

I definately think that you should do that.
Simple explanation: It sound awesome.

Also you could have him with lots of swampweed hanging off him and instead of the spikes on his back, there could be plants? (don't know if you could do that).

Titans could certainly use hair/vine "beards" and other decorative sheets hanging from their limbs to mask their lowpoly nature. That's a good idea!
