Shields should make a special sound when they break

If shields made a distinctive 'wood breaking' sound when they reached 0 hitpoints it would definitely be cool.

Make it much easier for ranged classes to know when they break a shield.

A next step for the idea, maybe the shield model should disappear from the player (until they get another armor pickup) or even drop to the ground when shields break, or a cracked version of the regular model drops on the floor, etc.

    We are indeed, working on ways to improve the shields. It's one of the dev team's priorities after 3.6's release.

    Aye that would be fantastic. Here's the plan:

    - Improve shield bashing animation to show player shield bash vulnerabilities
    - Figure out a way to balance one hand sword once accompanying shield has been fully dmged.
    - One hand sword/seax animations
    - Knight shield deterioration (warping etc) vs viking/pirate shield gibbing (including polish like sounds like you suggested)
    - Redesign shield mechanics and animations overall (long term goal)

    Everything has its beginning, hop aboard the grogboat!

    If PVKII had a better sound system that allowed custom sounds to be added, made, modified and so on, I would try my best to make all those [SOUNDPACK(s)] I made as unique as possible, one including a good shield break sound.

    Sadly, the only best chance I could have with adding custom sounds and the like is using a third-party plugin that removes multiplayer access, a third-party plugin that only affects one server or using a very unconventional method of modifying the .QC file of a model or even models.
