I'm just in the process of putting together a tank compilation for the Final Mod Pack Project, perhaps I'll draw some inspiration from this. :)

Feel free to use whatever you need!  :)

Oh and remember: arcing shots combined with autoshots can cause the game to hang (at least it did with the Piratez Mod's flamethrower, not sure if the newest git fixed this)

It had been fixed a few weeks ago... at least it seems so. If this bug persists, I'll let the Elder Gods know :)

Great, then I can reenable it for some other weapons, too. Thanks for the update, Dioxine!

French translation

Acid-Shotgun Hovertank:
Code: [Select]
extraStrings:
  - type: fr
    strings:
      STR_HOVERTANK_ACID: Blindé Anti-G Toxine
      STR_ACID_CANNON: Canon à Toxine
      STR_HOVERTANK_ACID_UFOPEDIA: Mise au point par nos meilleurs scientifiques, cette technologie quelque peu sordide s'avère extrêmement dévastatrice, bien que proposant une portée très limitée.

Scout-Hovercraft:
Code: [Select]
extraStrings:
  - type: fr
    strings:
      STR_HOVERTANK_SCOUT: Blindé Anti-G Éclaireur
      STR_SCOUT_SMOKE_CANNON: Grenade Fumigène
      STR_HOVERTANK_SCOUT_UFOPEDIA: L'objet principal de cet aérochar réside dans la reconnaissance du terrain.  Constitué d'un blindage des plus résistants, aux dépends d'un armement très limité, son atout principal reste son importante mobilité.

Artillery-Tank:

Code: [Select]
extraStrings:
  - type: fr
    strings:
      STR_TANK_GRENADE_LAUNCHER: Blindé Artilleur
      STR_HWP_GRENADES: Grenades PAL
      STR_TANK_GRENADE_LAUNCHER_UFOPEDIA: Bien que disposant d'un armement moins puissant que les autres PAL, le Blindé Artilleur est très utile dans un rôle de support indirect.

I've always wanted to have the Tank-Cannon fire explosives, instead of AP. An auto-shot feature might be better, or even a machine gun type weapon. But now, with Open XCOM, one can use mods, and make what one pleases.

I like this game.

Nice, but I use the term of "Blindé Anti-G" for the Get Localisation project.

You are right

I saw both expressions in global french translation and did not really know which one to use

Feel free to add corrections you want (just copy/paste/correct it)

We work as a team if you agree  ;)

Regarding your Tank/Grenade Launcher (and certainly for others) that I tested, I had to make a small correction to fix issue in ufopaedia (i.e. initially displaying "HWP Grenades" for both Weapon and Ammunition)

Solution :

1) Under ufopaedia section, replace
Code: [Select]
    weapon: STR_HWP_GRENADES
with
Code: [Select]
    weapon: STR_HWP_GRENADE_LAUNCHER

2) Define a new reference under extraStrings as below
Code: [Select]
      STR_HWP_GRENADE_LAUNCHER: Grenade Launcher


Anyway, following your inspiration, I created a new unit : Tank/MachineGun

A stupid question of a newbie, just for my information : what do you mean by "to [TAG] your mod" ? Add it on OpenXcom Mod Site ?

i mean all threads in the completed mod section should have tags in square brackets, like [WEAPON] or [HWP] to indicate their content for ease of searching in future, as per my post here: https://openxcom.org/forum/index.php?topic=1700.0
