If im done, you can :)


Other thinks (for everybody):

How research?

I dont wanna complicate the research, you have the heavy plasma and the blaster launcher, you can search this.
v1 reseacrh and after v2? or both at same time? Or just 1 version?


How made the manufacture?
Only with elerium and alien alloys, or 1 Heavy plasma and 1 Blaster Launcher and few elerium with alien alloys (like a fusion)?

Would you like to do a terrestrial version with rifle and either HC-HE (though in that case I assume there needs to exists a single round HC-HE clip)?

I think just adding the two weapons' material components together should work.
Based on vanilla: $212,000 for parts, 2,200 Engineer Hours, 2 Alien Alloy

Won't they also react fire with it if they have enough TUs?

I do not check this part of code. Overall my change do not touch AI, if previous version work then it work now, if not, then do not work.

Without adding some smart AI code, can we get something simple like, If combi-weapon is in use, Alien will use alternate shot X% percentage of time if ammo is available ( where X can be adjusted by Modder to suit design).  I would like to see this concept use with other weapons types also,EG: shotgun, flame thrower, Stun rods etc.
