This is from an older version of the mod, where indeed there was no ammo. This is no longer true.

If this is the case, then you should probably remove last sentence from this string, like so:

Code: [Select]
STR_TANK_MINIGUN_UFOPEDIA: Эта тяжелая боевая платформа оборудована скорострельным многоствольным орудием и полезна для вытеснения противника.

... and for the rest languages as well.

phobos2077,

I've made my version of the russian translation:
Code: [Select]
  - type: ru
    strings:
      STR_MINIGUN: Миниган
      STR_MINIGUN_CLIP: Патроны к минигану
      STR_MINIGUN_UFOPEDIA: Это осыпающее градом пуль тяжёлое оружие поддержки наиболее эффективно при зачистке местности и подавлении противника. Из-за присущего ему большого веса, для полного раскрытия потенциала этого оружия от бойца требуется немалая сила.
      STR_LIGHT_MINIGUN: Лёгкий миниган
      STR_LIGHT_MINIGUN_CLIP: Патроны к лёгкому минигану
      STR_LIGHT_MINIGUN_UFOPEDIA: Лёгкий миниган сочетает в себе мобильность и стрельбу длинными мощными очередями, что делает его довольно универсальным оружием.
      STR_SCATTER_LASER: Лазерный лучемёт
      STR_TANK_MINIGUN: Танк/Миниган
      STR_HWP_MINIGUN_CLIP: ТБП патроны к минигану
      STR_TANK_MINIGUN_UFOPEDIA: Эта авторматизированная тяжёлая оружейная платформа, оборудованая скорострельным миниганом полезна при подавлении противника огнём.
      STR_SCATTER_LASER_UFOPEDIA: Это оружие - аналог минигана, для разрушающего воздействия стреляющий продолжительным залпом импульсных лазерных лучей.

Solarius Scorch,
I've downloaded version 1.4 just before the update =) Not tested yet 1.6, but 1.4 have a bug: Scatter Laser is known in Ufopedia before laser technology is discovered.

Hi 2xG, welcome to the forums!

Solarius Scorch,

You are right. It's fixed now and uploaded as version 1.6b.

As for the Russian version, I am in no position to decide which version is better, so I'll leave it to the voice of the public. :)

What if you start a project at getlocalization.com where the main OpenXcom translation is? Threre is a voting feature.

For like 10 strings? That would be excessive. :P

You're right, the ruleset was a mess. Thank you, fixed.

I hope it doesn't seem disrespectful to ask, but any chance of some length variants?

It looks great and fits great already.

What... are "length variants"?

I guess a good way to put it is, the variant graphics for it being a short-length or long-length mounted weapon. like, barrel length. depending on how you do it it might amount to an inventory tile's worth of shortening.

Like, a version that's a mini-minigun.

For an example, this is your minigun: http://modernfirearms.net/userfiles/images/machine/mg69/m134d-1.jpg

This is a good example of a shortened one: https://static1.squarespace.com/static/570f02e240261da404b66297/t/574e27d63c44d81bb19c0dea/1464739886064/?format=1000w 

A less refined example would be good old DOOM's chaingun. Not very long, but box-fed and brutal.

Ah, okay. But I don't think you can do much more with the space you have... And what would be the actual differences between these types? Accuracy?

You're welcome. Time to start playing then.

Have fun!

Peak accuracy, distance based inaccuracy, etc. I more tend to see XCom as a rare case of a near even arms-race where one side has a starting advantage but the other has a good eye for ideas.
Also it could be a caliber difference as well. One .308 and another 5.56x45.mm perhaps.

Have thought of it for my own modding. Might do a shortened minigun world sprite for fun/because since it's not too hard.

Sure, we could add more types of... anything really. But I honestly can't see much space for other additional designs.
However, if you want to give it a try, you have all of my blessings.
