weapon firing arcing/non-arcing ammo
« on: November 12, 2019, 10:57:15 pm »
My mod has a missile launcher that, in theory, launches two types of missiles:
- a guided missile that uses waypoints (see blaster bomb)
- a missile that flies in an arcing trajectory
I instinctively placed the peculiar entries (waypoints/arcinShot) in definition of the ammo, respectively, instead of the launcher. The waypoint missile seemed to work perfectly but the arcing missile was just flying straight.
I tried to put arcingShot into the launcher.. and now also the waypoint missile flies -not unexpectedly- in an arcing trajectory (with comical, but also quite buggy results).
Is it impossible to have these two different type of ammunition for the same launcher?

Thanks. I noticed there was the confShot option to selectively use arcing fire, but wouldn't that make the weapon load both ammo types at once (since it uses different ammo slots)? I don't want that.
I'll just forgo the arcing missile, I wasn't even completely sold on its inclusion :P
