Proper instastly primed granades
« on: July 03, 2022, 02:03:24 am »
Currently granades that primed instantly are technically shots: see screenshot.

Suggestion: add prime+throw single action (without priming screen).

For example it may be made by adding 'costPrimeThrow' parameter to ruleset. In that case object is thrown as normal granage, no priming screen, explodes on landing
Or perhaps by adding sub-parameter to 'costPrime' 'throwImmediately=True|False' for same purpose. First option seems more valid, but ofc actual implementation up to developers.

If that already been proposed, excuse me, but I have not found such request.

Currently flashbang grenade in X-Com Files mod work this way: you issue a single command and it goes off after a throw. Did you see that?

No I have not. Probably its also a shot, not a granade, like molotov cocktail on screenshot.

Technically this is already possible, probaby script are needed to pre-prime every grenade and make it trigger explosion only on throw.

Soldiers death will cause explosion, also putting it onto ground...

Did you read what I write?

"trigger explosion only on throw."

So it would only cost time units of throw or cost of priming granade would be added to throwing?

Sorry, have not realized that. But in any case that is more a workaround rather a good solution and unfortunately I really dont know how exactly write such script.

There are already couple of example of scripts that have similar function, if you find correct one you probably could copy-paste it to your mod.

Why is this needed? What is the benefit of this?

Granade throwing would be more logical and easier to use ;)
