Work In Progress / Re: [Crafts][Weapons] XCom Armoury Expanded - v1.01 !!
« on: October 26, 2014, 01:08:24 am »

v2 ruleset,  with the modification i was wondering ...

- dragon kiss is compatible with standard shotgun
- reinforced shotgun only depend on alloy, not other alien tech/research.

I don't know which rulset is best balanced ....

For the idea of a full set of weapon based on good-old human concepts but optimized an built with alloy, i think at such a set for some time.

There is some great pixelarts in Chiko's ressource posts :

But they lack handobs gfx, and i'm not good at drawing them, so for now, this is just an idea.

For the graphics ... they are in the last XAE release ZIP :-)

For the reinforced shotgun, i didn't think about a full new tier, just as a little upgrade to a very old/basic weapon since the std shotgun is a lot less sophisticated than the rifle or the auto/heavy canon.

I have seen your work on the DE-Gauss, so i have not included Warboy's original E115 shotgun ammo but my concept of a simple human-tech incendiary ammo for the shotgun.

I ask myself 2 questions about those wepons:
- Maybe it would be good to make the dragon's kiss useable with the std shotgun, so the only improvement of the "aloy shotgun" would be the auto-shot feature ?
- And decrease prerequisites for reinforcedshotgun to just Aloys and no alien tech since it's jsute a teran concept with better raw material. ?

Hello alien hunters :-)

This mod make me drop some little mini-mod i was working on since some times ... but i like it.

So, my little contribution : an advanced shotgun and a new shotgun ammo for XAE.

Based on Warboy's shotgun, just a ruleset, no need for additional graphics, it use Warboy's graphics that are present but unused in XAE 1.01.

- Reinforced Shotgun : same stats as original by Warboy.
-> auto-shot : x3

- Shotgun Dragon's Kiss ammo : A rain of molten metal, not to be used for a barbecue, but potentially effective response to some aliens. Can only be fired with reinforced shotgun since the standard shotgun can't deal with such a high temperature.
-> type 2 (incendiary) damages, so useless against snakeman, but better against some of other aliens.

Suggestions / Equip armor from the in-base inventory screen ?
« on: September 10, 2014, 10:24:56 pm »
Congratulations to all the contributors to this great game (developers, artists, modders ...)

And ... a little wish ... :)

Would it be possible to be able to select the armor for a soldier from the crew's equipment screen available for transporters at base ?

In the concept:
-1- Be in soldier equipment from one carrier to the base screen
-2- Click on the silhouette of the soldier
-3- Pop-up -> list of available armor
-4- Click / select the armor and return to the screen equipment

Thank you.

Work In Progress / Re: [WEAPON/BETA] Laser Sniper Rifle
« on: September 07, 2014, 11:41:44 pm »
Hi all,

I haven't been very active for a few month due to some concerns at office.

@SiceX : thanks for translation, i will include it.

@caleafterearth : feel free to reuse my Gfx, a little "credit note" will make me happy :-)

For the time since my last post, i have worked on a little "laser mod" with those ideas:
- Gfx from Chico's work for the 3 standard laser weapons
- a laser snipper rifle
- power clips for all laser weapons
- all this without E115 nor alloy dependency (laser stay 100% human tech.)

For graphics, i can't manage to draw any good gfx with darker red, so i will stay on red.

For the snipper rifle, i have changed the grip to a gray one for better consistency with the 3 other laser weapons.

For clips, i have see that other similar mod have been released before mine .. so it seems to be a good idea :-)

I will try to pack actual state and post it this week, but it is still beta IMHO.

I had never heard of "La courbe du chien", even though french is my native language..!

On the mathematical side, it was a beloved subject for one of my professor in "Math Spe",  I'm probably unable to recalculate one now, but this leaves some memories ...:-p

On the "military" side, it is probably more used in submarines for long torpedo trajectory path than for the much shorter and faster missiles shoot.
It is a matter of optimizing the interception time and consumes less fuel (ie autonomy and practical range of the weapon).

Troubleshooting / Re: kernel32.dll problem
« on: August 06, 2014, 01:01:08 am »

No pb playing OpenXCom nightly build  on XP...

But ...XP with SP3

Why haven't you installed the SP3 ?

In French, we call this "la courbe du chien" (~"the curve of the dog", sorry i can't find any good translation) .

The nose of the dog/fighter/rocket always pointing to the target instead of the future position.

To me, it's seems to be a too big modification from vanilla to give such a sophisticated capacity to XCom interceptors, but what could be really cool and maybe not a too big work would be to allow launching interceptors with multi-point orders (like the blaster trajectory) so we could give at least one fixed point to the fighter before heading for the ufo.

Troubleshooting / Re: crash on base defense if scout drone in store
« on: August 03, 2014, 08:39:07 pm »
Mhhh ..

I dont undestand all,

 the only signficative diff i see is the "floorSprite" for the "STR_SCOUT_SMOKE" ammo ...

Is this the cause of the crash ? but HW Pammo are not displayed in the equipment screen ?

Troubleshooting / Where are my sectopods ?
« on: August 03, 2014, 02:33:34 am »

currently playing with build : openxcom_git_master_2014_08_01_2129

I just destroyed an Ethereal base, and by the way, I stunned 3 sectopods.

I found them in the alien detention inventory.

I "kill" them via alien detention screen ... but no trace of the body in the store.

Where are the bodies? I need to build cyborg XCom :-(

Troubleshooting / crash on base defense if scout drone in store
« on: August 03, 2014, 12:04:10 am »
Hi all,

I just encountered a crash, the game just close without any message.

It's on a base defense mission, the UFO land ... and plop, the game exit abruptly.

After some replay, i have found that this hapend when i have some scout drone in the base store.
If i sell scout drones before the ufo land, no crash and i can play the base defense mission.

Since it's linked to a mod, i don't know if this should be put in the bugtracker ?

savegame attached, just let the ufo attack "Zone 51"  and enjoy the crash
