[WEAPON] Machine pistol
« on: March 05, 2014, 12:41:09 am »
Here's a 2x2 one-handed automatic weapon, for close combat specialists. The shooting stats are the same as the Gauss pistol from TFTD, and the clips hold 24 pistol bullets.

I pixelled the sprites from scratch, and hereby put them in the public domain - so feel free to re-use !

Languages : English, French, Spanish

Nice pixellation

Maybe it would be better if you ZIP the ressources within a sub-folder instead of directly in the ressoruce folder, so it is easyer to keep each mod in it's own sub-folder.

My 2 cts : a french trad:

Code: [Select]
  - type: fr
    strings:
      STR_MACHINE_PISTOL: Mac-9
      STR_MACHINE_PISTOL_CLIP: Chargeur Mac-9
      STR_MACHINE_PISTOL_UFOPEDIA: Le pistolet-mitrailleur Mac-9 est conçu pour tirer d'une main. Il est moins précis que le pistolet mais permet de tirer en rafales et dispose d'un ample chargeur.

nb: i use the name "Mac-9" because "Pistolet-Mitrailleur" string is too long and don't feet well in game.

Don't have the time to check, but is it comparable with the laser pistol in time unit costs?  Maybe this is one that'll fire real quick like the laser pistol?

Laser pistol is always better. This is human tech (pre-laser), it has to be balanced with the other weapons that are immediately available.

v2 Update : Added a floorobj, packaged resources in a subdirectory, added a french translation (Ascadix : I picked "pistolet auto" in order to fit better with the other stock XCOM weapons)

Cool! Please allow me some constructive criticism: acually it resembles the shape of a MAC-10



which i never stood, please may someone make a modified version of thi mod and create an IMI uzi, i think it's more cool plus more fitting in a strategy gme (it is useb by variuus special assault troops until today)

I chose a micro uzi as a reference, the one you displayed is the longer version designed to be used with both hands.

Hi. Spanish translation :)

      STR_MACHINE_PISTOL_UFOPEDIA: La pistola ametralladora está diseñada para disparse usando una sola mano. Es menos precisa que la pistola, pero dispone de disparo automático y utiliza cargadores con muchas balas.

Thanks Nightwolf! Uploaded v3 in first post, which:
- Is in UTF-8 without BOM
- Adds spanish translation
- Fixes language string for en-GB, which I had written en-UK (Thanks Falko's modtester)
- Fixes file case for Linux users (Thanks Falko's modtester)
- Uses lower ids because Supsuper said we should stay under 1000

@niculinux

You could look into the "Men In Black" mod, it include a new Snipper Riffle and another  "Machine Pistol", in a less compact model.

Dear Yzrouod,

Made myself a mod, can see it in the thread: [WEAPON][RESOURCES] niculinux weapon sprites attempts gave you also some credit, hope you'll like it :)

Edit: Also, there's my italian translation for you mod:

Code: [Select]
  - type: it-IT
    strings:
      STR_MACHINE_PISTOL: Pistola mitragliatrice
      STR_MACHINE_PISTOL_CLIP: Caricatore per pistola mitragliatrice
      STR_MACHINE_PISTOL_UFOPEDIA: La pistola mitragliatrice è progettata per essere azionata con una sola mano. E' meno
accurata rispetto pistola, ma  rispetto a quest'ultima spara in modalità fuoco automatico e utilizza caricatori dotati di una maggiore quantità di colpi.
