Is there going to be an intro for Xenocide?

Intro- yes, Deimos is working on it I think. Ragdoll physics engine is already in the system/plans. The amount of implementation might be limited in v1, but I expect that future versions would look at adjusting the damage levels for concussive force to include force vectors and moving stuff around. Imagine a shock wave just strong enough to destroy all the fragile windows on the block, one grenade blows out all the windows nearby. :D

Lot's of work to implement, but the results will also be very nice.

from a design point of view the turn based time slices makes ragdoll stuff easier.

there's a great ragdoll demo called "stair dismount" here

might be a chunk of work tho.

Hey -

Also, if you liked that demo (hehe, I did...), then check out the Ragdoll Physics thread. There are a few more there, and number more linked to the ODE page. And yes, Breunor is right, if/when we implement a true ragdoll physics engine, it will be VERY cool (not to mention tactically very significant).

But as RK said, we need more programmers, or at least one or two with experience in this field, to pull it off for v1. I'm asking around though, so who know...

Isn't this off topic?
