Hi all,
is possible to create a weapon with "waypoint" tag set to true with 3 waypoints max instead 9 like normal blaster bomb?

If I remember correctly, in OpenXcom it is not 9, but unlimited.
I don't know about any option to limit that.

yes, it's accounted for in the AI as well.

You know, if you set it to just one waypoint, you have a reasonable simulation of a laser guided weapon now.
