    I'm guessing the inspiration (or at least part of it) is from Just Cause 2

    Nice guess !
    You got that one right. Just Cause 2 is awesome!
    Do you play it too ?

    I finished Just Cause 2 about year ago. I played with mods (multiple grapling hooks for example) :)

    Could you tell me how pushing objects works?
    I mean what kind of code you used.

    Excellent mod! I can't wait to try it. The first thing I will use my Grappling Hook on, is Lifeline DLC!

    Who said you have to wait until June, if you have the Grappling Hook to reach it before others? <Getting the DLC now!>

    can you increase the hook's distance? This is really fun~:cool:

    I got it~
    We all know the guns, assaultguns, they have two mods to switch . If you can add your function on it , then we can use any gun to do this work, right?
    Ha ha ~yeah, what a rush~:D

    I feel that I will be ada wang in resident evil~;)

    Maybe use config.xml from gravity gun from Half Life 2 and modify this sets to be compatible with state of decay :)

    Pushing objects is not in .. yet.
    I'm using Flowgraph in cryengine editor to code it..

    I am looking into gamepad support, but its not a high on the list of priorities due to lack of time.
    Distance can be increased, but involves editing some text manually at your end.
    I'll explain more later. On a short break now.

    That idea did come up.
    Maybe I'll do it, when time permits.

    I have not really messed around with turning the Grappling hook into a gun attachment yet.
    But its a great idea. :)

    Don't think it works the way you describe it.
    State of Decay uses Cryengine (not the latest one)
    Half life 2 uses the Source engine.

    when you aim by gamepad, LB doesn't have any function,maybe we can use it?

    of course we should know how to fix the controller set in this game first~:)

    support gamepad will make it more fun~

    Note: Gravity wells are naturally part of the physics in CryEngine. Just saying :)
