The flamethrower is very similar to the one on 'Natural 2'

On RCZ server, when you have a ping of ~205, and try to grab a Human with basi, or even bite with Dretch, you can't because the rest of the game says you're not at that location yet. Since "hit-boxes" would be completely natural, would this be corrected?
I had these problems on servers with unlagged off. Can't say now how it will be, but new engine should deal with it. It is independent on shape of collision box.

I understand what you mean.

According to the trem source code, basilisk grab never was unlagged. Hence it would be the same if you had unlagged off. You need to aim ahead the grabs in according to your ping. In 1.1 i just use a basilisk like a marauder on high ping servers so this doesn't really bother me.

This is kinda normal for me to not use them as much unless its a low ping server like Game Arena or Asia Unofficials because everywhere else i go is 300 ping + while european servers are generally 400+ [although europeans... damn they only get 120-250 ping on asia for some odd reason... lucky bast*rds :/]

On some occasions, i can tackle on several people with just one basilisks and shows how ping-bias basilisk is.

We do get"frequent players" in comparison to other never-populated servers.. About 3-5 games a day on average i guess. But then each game can last as long as 100 minutes [Practice mode's timelimit is 100 minutes, and you can't kill each other's bases in the time as well, although you do get free creds and s3] which is a bit too  long [I'll ask wogo to reduce it to like... 45 next time i meet him]

But anyway, just because i'm in the southern hemisphere doesn't mean i can do things upside down. Honestly, wallwalking is my weakest point, probably due to the average framerate i get from this computer of mine.

...u have a good gun like flamethrower or luci.
No. 1.1 luci was spam-able although one thing i loved about it is the luci jumping, and gpp luci, well us australians dubbed it the "MDKsomething" and i just call it the "MD Cannon" which is the "mass driver cannon" due to its high speed.

Also, as far as i know due to the lack of newbies in australia, we have a higher Pro-Noob ratio of players, then europeans are probably next leaving the americas last [Sorry!]

As a side effect, we hardly have any games, and on gpp the reason why asia seems so vacant any time of the day is because i need to organise games myself due to the lack of players within our region.

In gpp, honestly, there's probably only like 10 australian players from what i know. And a quater of which, live in my city because i recruited them to trem.

Also, i hear americans and europeans cannot tolerate pings above 150 XD (ahahahaha! Until about one and a half years ago, i had 0 servers on gpp under 300 ping! Try something new once in a while nabs!)

1. I think that stopping part is bug. We will not implement this bug :)

Do be careful about how you implement this.  Remember that one of the biggest benefits (Almost the only reason I personally use a jetpack ever) is that it allows you stop drop from high elevation to low elevation very quickly without taking fall damage.   Meaning if I fall from a very tall spot to the ground, I turn my jetpack on and off just to stop above the ground.  Alternatively, if I'm on a cannon map, and use the cannon to get to the top (lets say the green room at the top of rotcannon) I will use the jetpack to stop accelerating upward so I can maneuver to the room easier.
