Body Carrying
« on: February 16, 2014, 06:18:06 am »
Is it possible for somebody to make a mod that displays carried bodies in a person's hands?

Hmm, if you make a handob for STR_CORPSE and the like... I just don't know if the game would handle it without changing the program's code.
Why don't you experiment with this? :)

The problem is that I don't really know how to mod or edit OpenXCom :-\

All you need to do is to make a new .rul file (use any txt editor) and copy the relevant fragment of the basic ruleset there. Then you may change whatever you want.

This is your new Bible: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=Ruleset_Reference_%28OpenXcom%29 :) It's not perfect, but it's the best thing out there.

Still, I don't know if the game allows for body handobs.

Corpses are just an item, they can have a HANDOB like any other item, no coding necessary.

Good. I was hoping so, but sometimes you get disappointed.

Well, now I have no idea how a HANDOB should look like to look good. :) But it'd be nice to have.

Give us something like this!!



I was gonna post a half naked girl picking up a man(The only pick I can find), but I don't know how to add NSFW spoiler tags. So in a few words, women can do it too.

The problem is that we'd have to use the hand configuration for normal two-handed (or one-handed) weapons; creating a new pose means more graphic files, and I don't think the game would handle it as of now. Plus, who would draw so many pixelated armswith so little use? :)
