How does the game behave?
« on: December 25, 2019, 04:20:54 pm »
Hi everybody! I’m Jone.
If an alien is equipped with a weapon that has multiple ammo types, and has multiple types of ammo in inventory (let's say hypothetically an autocannon with incendiary and AP ammo objects) how does the game behave?
I'm planning on modding in more ammunition types for the small launcher (well, a small-launcher equivalent weapon) and I'm interested in whether the aliens could actually benefit from this on the battlescape.

Also, do aliens actually use up shots from ammo they carry? I suspect not as I can't remember finding a non-full weapon but I also haven't been looking too closely.
Thank in advance.

Aliens do spend ammo.

Aliens can reload.

When reloading, they just take the first clip they find (in OXC).
(in OXCE they take the clip from a slot that costs the least TU to reload)

This question has been asked word for word before.  I think somethings fishy with maphrawxxnxaksr.
