Chrono Vortex wrote:The Ion Cannon is pretty much the only weapon I've tested extensively and to me it seems good, although you are right about it dropping four shields. I'm pretty sure though that only if you're lucky once it get's past those shields it only hits one room. As for the Magnetron Beam, the time the beam is in contact with the shields is what determines how many shields it drops, so I bumped the speed way up and I think I got it to a point where it won't just rip all the shields and the hull to shreds without any effort.

As I've stated, it's been a while since I've seen an ion beam (last one beeing on the Hooker from TaxiService) so if testing shows it's all right, I'm fine as well with it.

You know... I actually mentioned it looked like the way it worked in red alert 2 during the showcase :D .
Maybe just do something with the lights on the mount itself then? It sort of looks unfinished if you compare it with say the prism laser.

If adding lighting to the weapon is what you mean, I already did that to some extent in the style of other missile weapons (kind of). The thing about adding a full on charge animation is there's not many places to add detail, but I could experiment a little bit and see what I come up with.

C&C Weapons Pack: Version 3.5

Postby Chrono Vortex » Sun Nov 06, 2016 2:12 am

Small update. I spiffed up a couple animations, and I also added a new weapon. There were few other bits of polish in the data and sound files done as well.

Wow, nice! Now we need an Iron Curtain augment or something like that!

Thanks. I've toyed around with the idea of an Iron Curtain augment before, but I'd hate to get rid of the rock plating. I could just go with offensive Iron Curtain tech, like the Iron Dragon has in Mental Omega.

Iron Curtain could kill infantry, as I remember, so it can totally be offensive. Or it can give you a Zoltan shield charge, or something like that.
Also, a while back, I made a pretty specific loadout configs for Randtrel mod. It includes C&C, Giantel, Ballistic and Captain's Edition. If someone interested, I can upload it and load order for mod manager.

Btw, love Mental Omega (and your mod, of course).

That could be interesting. You could get some pretty wacky combos with that I'd bet. It'd certainly make for some interesting playthroughs.

Here you go: https://www.dropbox.com/s/i9tjy3qf2qz9w ... s.rar?dl=0

Load order:
Better Planets and Backgrounds_v1.3.1.ftl
CE Resource Pack 1.293.ftl
FTL Captains Edition 1.292.ftl
CE BPaB Compatibility Patch 1.0.ftl
CE Additional Music Addon 1.292.ftl
CE Infinite Addon 1.28.ftl
CE Additional Music Infinite Compatibility Patch 1.0.ftl
EL Texture Pack 1.27.ftl
CE Endless Loot Addon for CE Infinite 1.286.ftl
GO BALLISTIC! 1.2 GAUSS WHAT!.ftl
GO BALLISTIC! 1.2 GAUSS WHAT! (CE VERSION).ftl
C&C Weapons.ftl
GianTell.ftl
Randtrel.ftl

There are some weapons in loadouts which you won't be able to use immediately. I added them because I play with Endless Loot, and it's pretty impossible to encounter these guns. GO BALLISTIC! 1.2 GAUSS WHAT! (CE VERSION) can be found on last pages of respective mod.

There is a typo on the Desolator Beam description:

"Projects shield piecing radioactive particles that can cause fires and harm crew.", where "piecing" should be "piercing"

Also, maybe "cause fires" should be "start fires"?

Should be fixed now. Observing the precedent set by the vanilla fire beam, "start fires" would seem to be more appropriate. Thanks for the pointer.
