Flame Sentry

Description
Working with b328.

This mod adds an other sentry type: the Flame sentry. It is ready to be used without any other changes (just add the mod ID)

The marine commander can drop it the same way he drops a regular one.

The Flame sentry has been designed to be a much more effective sentry in cost of more than half of its range. Making it a better choice against skulks, fade and onoses but vulnerable against lerks, and bile.

It also benefit from all the advantage of the flame including: stamina reduction, post burning damages and while it does not target them, spores and biles are destroyed if present between the FlameSentry and its target.

Special thanks to @4Horsemen (NS2Combat) for the model & animation files.

* Range: 8
* Damages: 6 (+ post burning damages)
* Approx DPS: 42 (~40.2 + 2 for burning damages)

Unfortunately this throws some errors, any chance for update?|

May I suggest changing the flame area to be a wider cone, so the flame sentry scales better with player count?

Mod updated for b320 to include fixes done by the wooza modding crew.

Nice! Although wouldn't "Incindiary turret" sound/flow better?

This was a bug, well seen. I have also fixed the flame sentries FOV (was 140° instead of 160°) and reduced the flame length to match its real range.

Also, I noticed Stomp does not disable Flame Turrets. Is that intended?

@Katzenfleisch I think it's jst the flame cinematic, which is already aimed quite low. It's just a lot of aliens' (skulk, gorge, lerk, Onos with bone shield) view are at the same height as the flame turret.

Thanks for the report however I failed to reproduce it (using d3d9 and different settings). Are you sure the white is not the flame cinematic itself aiming right to your head/camera ? Would appreciate if you could try again facing an other direction. At last if this is an issue I can force the flame sentries to aim more toward your foot to let you see a bit better.

Getting hit by these with Bone Shield on makes the Onos' screen turn white. :P
