[WEAPON] Laser Rifle Recolor
« on: April 26, 2014, 07:11:20 am »
I made this purely for myself but figured I might as well upload it in case someone else might enjoy it. I never understood why the Laser Rifle didn't match the other laser weapons. Figured I'd try my hand at some minor modding and see if I could rectify that.

Big Object, Floor Object, and Hand Objects all recolored. No stats on the weapon have been altered.

Download at the mod site: https://www.openxcom.com/mod/laser-rifle-recolor.

To install, using the 0.9 Nightly build, place the 'Laser_Rifle_Recolor.rul' file into the 'Ruleset' folder. Then place the 'murmursLaserRifle' folder into the 'Resources' folder. Finally, enable the mod in the options menu.

Enjoy your matching laser weapons!

EDIT: Also, if you're into laser weapons, check out my other mod that rebalances the Heavy Laser: https://www.openxcom.com/mod/heavy-laser-rebalance. It basically makes the differences between the Heavy Laser and the Laser Rifle quite similar to the differences between the Plasma Rifle and the Heavy Plasma. It's such a small tweak I didn't think it deserved it's own thread, so I tagged it on here.

Yea, that always bugged me! It is also a nice alternative to Cico's nice laser weapon replacement.

I like it. Installed.

Tip: Rebuild the zip file, so that it is ordered like PowerSuitHelmOff. That way it is much simpler to just unpack it directly into the 'data' folder, instead of having to manually copy 'Laser Rifle Recolor\Laser_Rifle_Recolor.rul' into the 'data\Ruleset' folder, and 'Laser Rifle Recolor\murmursLaserRifle' into the 'data\Resources' folder.

Hey, thanks for the tip! I'll do that now, and in the future for anything else I might make.

Hey, I like that! The original version looked a bit flat. Can we have all handobs now? :)

looks really good, much more like something the military would use :) perhaps the pistol and heavy laser should also have these little color patches?

Could we also get some recolors in the opposite direction? I rather like the color scheme of the original Laser rifle, and it would help differentiate the pistol from the plasma pistol a bit more.

Great work btw.

Is it possable for me to use these sprites in one of my mods and/or as a base for my own version please?

As always I'll give full credit to you for the graphics.

Check Awesomeguns.Laser for a more up to date version with more variations, including handobs. It is available on the forum.
The mod also has its own website.


Also check out Red Blue Lasers for an alternative matching set of lasers, also available on the forum.

Sure, i'll get on there and see if they have downloads for AwesomeGuns including Awesomeguns.Laser and its nightly patches. I remembered that it has its own website for a reason  (I went there probably yesterday or 3 days ago).

Maybe i find a download link or attachment to the AwesomeGuns mod there, probably laser recolors i believe.


I'll check it out eventually for now on.
