View Full Version : Dune Mod!

Does this even need to be mentioned?

Those "Sand Burrowers" or whatever they call them in JA SP are straight out of Frank Herbert's Dune.

So here's what I'd like to see:

Place a "thumper" (plantable device that creates rythmic vibrations into the ground) to summon a worm, then with proper timing, use your Maker Hook (basically a multi pronged spear) to pole vault/climb on top of the worm and ride it for awhile (either into battle or just to get around over the sand).

That would be so awesome. And the worm could eat anything in your path and your fellow warriors could ride on its back behind you (so long as one player was "driving").

If this was done.. how long before we started seeing some Siege maps with a "Dune" theme? ; )

*dreams of armies of Fremen Fedyakin warriors battling it out with melee weapons with Harkkonen and Sardukar troops*

Whoa, that's a pretty sweet idea.

Hahaha! Maud'dib will live again!!!
Kurgan, your dream is freakin AWESOME.

I'd like to see some skins with some nice spice effected eyes (glowy eye shaders..)

Actually, you wouldn't believe how easy it would be to make a DUNE PREQUEL mod for JA :p. Sorcerers firing out lightning, Mech machines, eh, seems possible!
