This is my Prefab entry for The Christmas Triple-Design Contest
And now seriously. I had some interesting ideas for this contest, many actually. Including a portable firing snowball machine and a "fantastic" drivable Santa Sleight. What I did was taking both ideas and craft them into this sleight of the future. I tried to make it viable. Not just flying brushwork, and so I added some fancy effects to it, including particles, and even a trail that follows the Sledge leaving a golden effect where is passes. But that's just some extras I wanted to include.
In case you missed it, its a drivable. And I've worked a lot on it to make it functional. Unfortunatly since the engine isn't made for this kind of stuff it leads to some problems, which I tried to overcome but some are just either impossible or not worth the time to fix because it can lead to more problems.
Anyhow, the Sleight works perfectly 100% in single player, and I've exaustly tested it with some people (thanks to them) and received lots of feedback.
To drive this boy, you press E on the front part of it, it will instantly parent you to it and you won't be dropped off until you press "E" again or jump to get out.
If you are drunk, you might wanna get on the back part of the Sledge and let your friends drive for you. Theres space for 2 passangers in the back.

I know what sometimes causes the crash, thanks to Kaemon. Its when the round ends while someone is parented to the Sledge. Which unfornatly for me has no solution but I decided to upload it anyway hoping for someone to come up with a possible fix. This can still be some sort of a "base" to work with in case you don't know much about thrusters, which I had to "re-learn" to create this.
I hope you enjoy this little something, I wish you a Merry Christmas and happy new year.
