[TFTD][WIP][MOD] Firing Animation for TFTD
« on: June 23, 2021, 07:05:32 am »
[OpenXcom Extended version 7.0 or newer is required to use this mod]
(Get OXCE 'HERE')

NastyKhan pointed out (In this thread) that for whatever reason in Terror From The Deep currently units do not animate when they fire a two handed weapon.

Oddly the DOS version of TFTD does not display this behavior so it may be a bug in OpenXcom.

This mod's goal is to make Aquanaut units display a firing animation again.

This is being done via changing the drawingRoutine: from 13 (Aquanauts) to 0 (Soldiers, Sectoid) and altering the arm section of the unit sprite sheets.
(You may notice some differences in arm placement.)

Features currently added:
. "Diving Suit" now has firing animation.
. "Plastic Aqua Armor" now has a firing animation.
. "Ion Armor" now has a firing animation.
. "Magnetic Ion Armor" now has a firing animation.


Changelog:
V0.4:
. X-Com Soldiers now use (Land) variants of armor when not underwater.
. Torso for Ion Armor (Land) has been fixed.
. Weapon carrying arm frames for Ion Armor & Magnetic Ion Armor have been made brighter.

V0.3:
. Added: Ion Armor (Water)
. Added: Ion Armor (Land)
. Added: Magnetic Ion Armor (Water)
. Added: Magnetic Ion Armor (Land)
. Added: Text Strings for (Land) variants of armor.

V0.2:
. Added: Plastic Aqua Armor (Water)
. Added: Plastic Aqua Armor (Land)

V0.1:
. Added: Dive Suit (Water)
. Added: Dive Suit (Land)




If you encounter any problems with the mod please let me know.
