Here's the jetpack from my unfinished works with SiegeXtreme 3. I'm making a standalone package that will replace all the lagpacks currently in siege with this new jetpack.

Check out the video preview

I like it, but why does it look twice as big after you put it on?

Hmm, I did play with different scaling but it looked wrong being small on the back so perhaps I will make the pickup look larger :)

Ever see the film The Rocketeer?

A jetpack should be somewhere between the size you have it and about the size of a normal school backpack. The one in your video looks realistic so far as workable but it begs the question "how is that guy able to stand up with that thing on while he's on the ground?"

Just my 2¢

True you have a point.
However the mesh was a lot of work to make the way I did it. It would be a lot more work on my end to remodel the whole thing to look right on the players back. For now I'll just use what I got and if I decide to polish it up with a mesh 2.0 for SiegeXtreme 3 I'll take your suggestions.

Affraid not, Not a high priority right now as I am currently working on my new MapData mod so that we can have randomized waves of monsters spawning for the ultimate Monster Siege Experience!

In the future however I will consider re-doing the jetpack mesh BUT that would come after I rework the jetpack physics and controls as a whole! I want the jetpack to fly as smooth as it'll look in the future ;)
