    Well, I wanted to finsih my fun mod on Terminal off with a hidden, full auto Fuel Rod/Flak Cannon hidden outside of the map.

    I know how to make an automatic weapon... but I need to know how to import/make use-able the Flak Cannon from 05b_deltatowers.

    I would really appreciate if you used only Entity 1.3.9, or any other Entity!
    Oh, and if it makes a difference, make it compatible for Terminal.

    I need to know all of the steps, in depth, pics would be highly appreciated, but if the tutorial is simple enough, they will not be necessary.

    I am looking for a tutorial that hopefully will read like this:
    1)Open up 05b_deltatowers in Entity1._.
    2)Click on weap+
    Chose Flak Cannon
    3)Select Parsed, Recursive, sounds
    4)................ whatever comes next :wink:

    Thank you guys so much!

    :frown:Anyone? I have it in, but I can't pick it up.. when I do, the game freezes.
