aircraft questions
« on: December 18, 2019, 08:39:30 pm »
is there an easy way to know if a craft is powered by normal fuel or eulerium ?

Apparently, Raven can't use laser beam unlike in FMP (still a good craft but what a maintenance cost for a base built craft !!! even if it isn't used in the month   ;) .
What crafts can use laser beams ? plasma beams ? (an indication in tech tree please).

IIRC the Craft Laser Cannon is a BEAM class weapon (as opposed to a CANNON), which means it can only be used on the Darkstar, Lightning, Firestorm, and Avenger. It's in an odd spot because unless you manage to rush lightning/firestorm you won't really have anything to mount it on for quite a while.

Craft weapon classes should be detailed on the weapon ufopaedia page, and weapon mounts available should be detailed on the craft's ufopaedia page.

Plasmas should be BEAM class as well.

This should be specified in ufopedia and not only in stats for nerds with default on
