Sorry about double posting, but I feel this should be separated.
I did something for the Greater Good today. To have it out of the way, I decided to make a compilation of all human firearms and other things available from the store at the beginning of the game. This mod is therefore a collection of various Earth weapons from many creators, combined into one ruleset.
I do not claim any credit for these items (except for those I made of course), as they are mostly unmodified. However, I did
some balancing changes that were absolutely necessary (as some of these items were definitely overpowered, compared to other weapons).
As I explained above, all weapons presented here are available from the store for purchase. The only exception is the Scatter Laser (that needs to be researched and produced), which was part of the Minigun mod, which I didn't want to break into pieces; I can do it if you think it gets in the way.
As of 1.0, this compilation contains the following mods:
- Combat Knife, by Warboy1982
- Grenade Launcher, by Warboy1982
- HMG, by Dioxine
- LMG, by Ryskeliini
- Magnum, by Ryskeliini
- Minigun, by Solarius Scorch
- Shotgun, by Warboy1982 and Dioxine (a patchwork of their mods)
- SMG, by Ryskeliini
- Sniper Rifle, by toshiaki2115
- Taser, by Ryskeliini
Although the main purpose of this mod was to create a single ruleset for the French Mod Pack, but it can be used as a standalone collection by anyone.
I hope this will prove useful to the project, or at least to someone who might want to use it separately. Naturally, I am open to suggestions and criticism. I would also like to know if there are any starting weapons out there that should be here but aren't.
CAUTION: This mod was balanced for the "UFO Extender Accuracy" option, which severely decreases autofire accuracy at long ranges. If you disable that option, you'll probably find Heavy Machine Gun next to useless (since its main advantage is solid medium-ranged autofire).
