Honestly it would be hard for any non-human to use computers. Lanius would probably just eat it by instinct, rockmen's and crystalmen's hands are too big for the keyboard and zoltan would probably overcharge the computer.

This tutorial is quite helpful, however I was wondering what I would do if I was using GOG instead of Steam
Thanks fellow gamers!

To be honest I have no clue. I didn't even know there was another way to get FTL other than Steam (except on mobile of course)... I suppose you would probably use the same method but you would have to find a different directory? Not really sure. :| Sorry.

So I don't know if this is the best place to ask but is there a way to create a laser weapon with an accuracy drop? I'm trying to create a weapon that will fire off 5 shots but has a chance of missing like a flak gun. I know it's possible, I've pulled it off before a while back on my old computer about a month back but I'm having trouble recreating it. I run into one of two problems when making the mod. The first is that the blueprint reads <shots>5</shots> but when examining the weapon in game or via Super Luminal it insists there is, in fact, 0 shots. (This isn't just a visual error either, when the weapon fires in-game nothing happens.) The second issue is that I get the weapon to fire but then the weapon has pinpoint accuracy.

Now the blueprint looked something like this from what I can remember. Any idea what I'm doing wrong or, more importantly, how it can be done?

Code: Select all

<weaponBlueprint name="LASER_BURST_5">
   <type>BURST</type>
   <title>Burst Laser Mark IV</title>
   <short>Burst Laser IV</short>
   <desc>Powerful burst laser that fires off an impressive barrage at the cost of accuracy.</desc>
   <tooltip>Fires 5 lasers; 1 damage per shot.</tooltip>
   <damage>1</damage>
   <shots>5</shots>
   <sp>0</sp>
   <fireChance>1</fireChance>
   <breachChance>1</breachChance>
   <cooldown>20</cooldown>
   <power>4</power>
   <cost>95</cost>
   <projectiles>
      <projectile count="1" fake="false">laser_light2</projectile>
   </projectiles>
   <radius>32</radius>
   <bp>10</bp>
   <rarity>4</rarity>
   <image>laser_light2</image>
   <launchSounds>
      <sound>lightLaser1</sound>
      <sound>lightLaser2</sound>
      <sound>lightLaser3</sound>
   </launchSounds>
   <hitShipSounds>
      <sound>hitHull2</sound>
      <sound>hitHull3</sound>
   </hitShipSounds>
   <hitShieldSounds>
      <sound>hitShield1</sound>
      <sound>hitShield2</sound>
      <sound>hitShield3</sound>
   </hitShieldSounds>
   <missSounds>
      <sound>miss</sound>
   </missSounds>
   <weaponArt>laser_burst_5</weaponArt>
</weaponBlueprint>

Well you are doing the correct thing by making it a "BURST" weapon. I can't quite make out what the issue might be, but I attempted this myself and included the file in this post, hopefully this works for you.

Also sorry for the late response, I only check the forums occasionally. Hopefully its not to late.
