Quick question, damage morale.
« on: November 29, 2019, 09:56:50 am »
Hi, I am looking for a way to damage or lower an enemy's morale. Costuse only works on soldier that fired the weapon, not the target. Is there away?

Thank you for the answer for the inventory question. For morale, I am experiencing no effect when implementing the code.

Here is the weapon.

  - type: STR_MORALE_GRENADE
    size: 0.2
    costBuy: 950000
    costSell: 50000
    weight: 9
    bigSprite: 1851
    floorSprite: 680
    handSprite: 1145
    power: 5
    damageType: 3
    battleType: 4
    blastRadius: 10
    hitAnimation: 9
    damageAlter:
      ToMorale: 100.0

Your grenade isn't penetrating armor. Either increase power and use the rest of damageAlter to get the effect you want or use ArmorEffectiveness less than 1 to make it 'pierce' armor in the damageAlter.

Thank you guys, after upping the damage, it worked. Lastly can ArmorEffectiveness have negative values?

Why would you need armor to be less than 0% effective?
And what would it even mean?

With testing, I found with zero value for armoureffectiveness and low power damage, some of the stats change has no effect with script hooks. I am just wondering what -1 would do, out of curiosity. If there is always room to experiment, as I am not 100% sure of this parameter. Would this transfer to health damage completely. I have completed my testing with this feature. Thanks again for the help Meridian.

Best case it will do nothing, worst case it will crash.
