The collective term for all types of ammunition is munitions.

hey guys,

insert this into your rule file to get german translation:

    strings:
      STR_GRENADE_LAUNCHER: Granatwerfer
      STR_LAUNCHER_FRAG: 46mm Granate (Explosiv)
      STR_LAUNCHER_INC: 46mm Granate (Brand)
      STR_LAUNCHER_SMOKE: 46mm Granate (Rauch)
      STR_GRENADE_LAUNCHER_UFOPEDIA: Der Granatwerfer eignet sich hervorragend für den Einsatz über mittlere und lange Distanzen und kann mit drei verschiedenen Munitionstypen verwendet werden.

Looks nice, but I have a suggestion. How about making it only able to fire in "aimed" mode? It seems to me that it's more fitting with the way a real grenade launcher would be used in the field.

(Yes, I realise this is a computer game and that other weapons such as the rocket launcher can be used to snap fire too, but two wrongs don't make a right :) )

Snap firing mode makes a lot more sense for a GL than a RL, so I wouldn't worry that much. A bigger problem is that the GL's innate stats are insanely good; basically it's the same as a small rocket, but waaay more handy (lighter, smaller, faster and more accurate), not to mention it has ballistic profile (which in most cases is an advantage).
I spoke with Dioxine earlier and after some deliberation we nerfed GL's power and made its ammo heavier (they were lighter than anything else in the game. :) ) After the changes the GL is still useful, but not so much of a game breaker.

Having said that, this is an excellent mod that should have been made. We just polished it a little, as it seemed unfinished.

A suggestion of the new ruleset is attached below.

I think both rocket and grenade launchers make more sense if they are restricted to aimed fire mode. But that's just my opinion.

Stat balancing is always good. I'm wondering if anyone has made a general rebalancing mod?

i play this mod and the grenade launcher is IMHO overpowered
for all aliens in the first 3 (superhuman) months  (oustside an UFO) i used only this weapon
i dont know how modding works but is it possible to change the HE munition into two types
1 with a small explosion diameter (2-4 tiles) but high damage (~70)
and a wide range explosion with low damage (~30-40) to remove obstacles
or is radius dependent on the damage?

I think I'll make a compilation/megamod some day. Not quite yet though.

...is it possible to change the HE munition ... radius ...?

it's all very easy to modify, just open up the .rul file and alter the blastRadius property of the grenade ammo

I made a new graphics for the grenade launcher. Actually I just converted images from ufo2000, which are much better, to my mind. Anyone feel free to use it :)

The UFO2000 icons are easy to use, they seem to use the same palette index.

I keep getting an error saying Couldn't open Resources/GrenadeLauncher/BigGrenadeLuncher.gif

I am using the latest version and I'm not sure what is wrong.
