Thanks

Currently working on the ship weapons, the tanks are then next on the list.

Still need feedback on how the mod plays though - any thoughts would help.

EDIT: Damm - Missed problem with E.Laser Cannon Manufacture, Ruleset update

I'm really after feedback on things like : Ammo more shots or less, Research faster or slower, Manufacturing prices/costs, are the weapons too powerful/too weak, Weapon range more/less : that sort of thing.

But sure, if you want to go ahead, any testing is always helpful ( and appreciated. )

UPDATE: 27/9/14

I've almost finished with the tanks ( just the corpses and hovertank to go ), added a sniper rifle, and have begun a overhaul/streamline of the ruleset.

At this point in time, there is no update but hopefully I will have one within the next month.

For those who are watching this thread, I've included a couple of graphics previews.

I wasn't expecting you to post today! Anyway, I've done a little work on your ruleset, I don't know if it's anything you yourself haven't already dealt with. There may be a little rebalancing, seeing as how my game is heavily rebalanced. I've tried to get it back as close to the old balance as possible. Anyhow, take a look and see if anything in here might speed things up a little for you. I've mainly moved stats around to clips to make it fit in a little more with conventional clipped weapons, not sure if that's actually useful. The exact order they appear in may be a little bungled.
Note: I haven't tested it yet.

I'll look into it, but the large ammo size was deliberate, so that may not change.

However the ruleset is undergoing a major rework, mostly to remove excess code and/or duplicated info.

Regarding the Heavy laser, are you planning to let it as it is or will you take the last "brown" part off it and make it full "laser-rifley"?


I saw the other ones. The pistol is simple yet well-done and the planned sniper rifle is very nice.

QUICK UPDATE: Hovertank graphics finished but only half sprited, I still have to work them into the code yet.  The Ruleset overhaul/streamline is going ok but slow.

Included: Preview for Hovertank v0.5

My work on this may have slowed down due to home problems (a stay in hospital, a lost harddrive and haveing to house/babysit for family) but it hasn't stopped.

I still need translations for the ufopedia texts though - if any one is willing to help please just PM me the translation, and I'll try to add it to the next update.

Thanks.
