Resources / Re: The_Funktasm's Crap-U-Copia: Alpha on page 3 - 1/1/17

Don't be anyone's slave artist, do only what you enjoy! Requests can be inspiring for an artist, but if you don't feel like it, fuck'em. And if they insist, ask for a monetary compensation :)

I'm happy to take "no" for an answer, Dioxine.  I'd never force an artist to do work for me... what satisfaction is there when the artist isn't happy?

It's cool, I know people have a life outside of the net, so no hard feelings!

Okay, I have two things to say, one of which a lot of people are doing to dislike.

First off, that new explosion animation looks terrible.  It looks extremely out of place in X-Com's setting, and I don't just mean because it doesn't match the vanilla "skull" explosion, I mean it looks like it doesn't even belong in the game.

Secondly, do you do handobs/floorobs too?  I have been STRUGGLING to get some decent Bigobs/handobs/floorobs for a project and you might be the go-to on them if you're willing to set aside some time and give me a hand.

You can have a normal hit animation/sound for stun-type weapons, but you ABSOLUTELY HAVE to set "blastRadius: 0" on it or it'll CTD all the time.  I had to work that out for the mod I curate.

An HWP is like a four-segment terror unit when you look at it in the rulesets (*/openxcom/standard/xcom1/units.rul) but it's special in the UFOpedia because it has built-in armour and weapons.

Work In Progress / Re: MaxDepth
« on: November 17, 2016, 08:10:20 pm »
I did some research and the funniest thing about it is that the Triton can go deeper than the Barracuda can.  Although they have the same maxDepth setting for interception, when you apply real world data to it, the Triton can reach deeper.  The ocean floor is, on average, about 13,000ft down, but the Barracuda's interception depth seems to stop around 9000ft, lol.  Fanon semantics joke that, while the frame is strong enough to reach super sonic speeds UNDERWATER, it's possible the engine design won't function deeper than 9000ft... or something silly like that.

Radius: 0 stops any explosion from going beyond the contact square.

The damage types that use hitAnimation 0 are Fire, Smoke, Stun, and Explosive.  I have no idea if you can set radius for non-explosive weapons, you'd have to play with it and see what happens.

Fire's initial spread is based upon the number, so 110 (the Incendiary Rocket) gives you a 9x9 coverage area.  Initial hit from a rocket (or any fire-type explosive) is only 10dmg plus whatever burn damage occurs over time.  The Snakeman and Silacoid are both immune to fire, so they cannot be ignited by it AND do not take direct hit damage from weapons using the incendiary damage type.

Open Feedback / Re: How Often do You Use the Heavy Cannon?

But.. having two heavy weapons enables you to diversify the arsenal by creating two different weapons for two different roles. I struggle to see how that's a bad thing, unless you are trying for a minimalist approach?

I actually have a wide selection of heavy weapons in my mod and, just as a hint for the next update, it's going to expand further.  As of now (the most up-to-date version of it) the Heavy Cannon has been removed in favour of a Grenade Launcher.  I don't really agree with that change so I'm looking at ways to expand things.  It mainly means I just have to add some extra code and a new set of sprites.

In vanilla? Pretty often, in early game.

Many people prefer the Auto-Cannon for its auto fire. I used to think so too, but grew out of it; the auto fire is pretty situational, for example with IN ammo. Heavy Cannon is stronger, more accurate and quite fast.

I'm not doing the poll right now, because the answers aren't logically linked to the question. "How often" doesn't mean "at which part of game", so I'm not even sure what you're asking about.

You are correct, Solarius, my poll options are not really all that relevant to the question.  I wasn't sure how to phrase it, but the posts alone tell me that, if I feel so inclined, I can safely remove the Heavy Cannon from my mod and almost no one will miss it.

So in working on my own mod, I was left with a "problem" in wondering if I should leave the Heavy Cannon in the game or remove it entirely.  I know the Heavy Cannon has its place, especially in Superhuman mode because it can carry more ammunition than the Rocket Launcher, but it's nowhere near the "workhorse" that the Gas Cannon is in TFTD.

Yes, this is true. The X-Com Weapon Rework and Expansion - 0.8.5 mod had a huge impact to my creation. Second was the XenoOperations. I used images for templates of conventional and alien weapon, because the graphics is look perfect in these two mods. Thank you for sharing this.

If you like the 0.8.5 version (which I believe was the last version the original creator made) you should check out the 1.4 version.  There's some more stuff in it you might want to look at/include.  Good luck with your mod!

Hey!  Current curator of Weapon Rework and Expansion here!  I just noticed that you're using some of the resources from the mod (and some of the unique content I created for it!)  I'm happy you thought highly enough of it to include it in your mod ^^

Hey Scorch, I did a little digging and got the Gauss sounds from TFTD for the weapons, even the hit sound.  I hope you decide to include them in the mod <3

Not entirely sorry for the double post.

Update time!  Relatively minor update this time, but it's been a long time coming.  I went through and did MORE typo fixes so everything should read a lot better now.  Delete version 1.3 and use version 1.4!


Change log:
- More typo fixes!

If you still have the old nightly, you can try rolling back.  What are you resolution and zoom level settings?  That might affect it in which case there's a problem that needs to be ferreted out.
