Some questions
« on: July 21, 2020, 06:12:10 am »
Hi.

1) I'm making a machine gun. In fact, it works, but i have problems with the ufopedia.

My weapon shoots 6 bullets in auto and 3 on snap, but, in ufopedia doesn`t show the (x3), only the (x6) of auto shot. I 'm following the pattern of the X-Com Files mod about BlackOps LMG. In that mod, the ufopedia article is ok,but it doesn't work for me.

    tuAuto: 35
    tuSnap: 33
    tuAimed: 70

    twoHanded: true
    invWidth: 1
    invHeight: 3
    confSnap:
      shots: 3
    autoShots: 6
    listOrder: 2700
    dropoff: 1
    meleePower: 50
    tuMelee: 33
    accuracyMelee: 100

2) I`m making the alien weapons researchable in two steps. First, they are identified as "Alien Artifact" followed by a number. In the ruleset (research) i'm using the same name of STR_PLASMA_RIFLE, but in ufopedia, the title and the text is different STR_PLASMA_RIFLE_A and STR_PLASMA_RIFLE_A_UFOPEDIA.

The problem is that in ufopedia, it shows the stats of autoshot, snapshot, etc., and when i complete the clip research, it shows the weapon power too.  I want override these data, in fact, i want only the text, title and object image. I can live with the weight value.

It is possible to do that? Notice that the second step is a final tech that shows me the name Plasma Rifle and the stats.

Thanks

I found the answer to this. For anyone who have the same question, you can put this on extraScripts:

Quote
     STR_SHOT_TYPE_AUTO: "Auto (x{0})"
     STR_SHOT_TYPE_SNAP: "Snap (x{0})"
     STR_SHOT_TYPE_AIMED: "Aimed (x{0})"

That should probably be extraStrings. ;)
