Beam colors

Postby redstonetorches » Sat Feb 28, 2015 4:23 am

I think I found something:

Code: Select all

<weaponBlueprint name="BEAM_BIO">
   <type>BEAM</type>
   <tip>tip_crew_beam</tip>
   <title>Anti-Bio Beam</title>
   <short>Anti-Bio Beam</short>
   <desc>This terrifying beam does no physical damage but rips through organic material, dealing heavy damage to crewmembers.</desc>
   <tooltip>2 power beam weapon that greatly damages enemy crew.</tooltip>
   <!--<desc>Power Req: 2    A beam weapon that does 1 damage and starts fires in a line if the enemy has no shields.</desc>-->
   <damage>0</damage>
   <persDamage>4</persDamage>
   <sp>0</sp>
   <fireChance>0</fireChance>
   <breachChance>0</breachChance>
   <cooldown>16</cooldown>
   <color> <!-- Color only works for beams -->
      <r>255</r>
      <g>110</g>
      <b>0</b>
   </color>
   <speed>13</speed>
   <power>2</power>
   <cost>50</cost>
   <bp>6</bp>
   <rarity>5</rarity>
   <length>140</length>
   <image>beam_contact</image>
   <launchSounds>
      <sound>beam2</sound>
   </launchSounds>
   <weaponArt>beam_bio</weaponArt>
   <iconImage>beam</iconImage>
</weaponBlueprint>


So you can use the <color> tags to change the color of beams? Everybody says you can't, so I checked the bio beam because it's orange.
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go do things that I probably don't need to be doing.

AE changed the rules on that one. Before AE, beams were hardcoded to be red only. Now, yes, they can be changed.
