Plasma Launchers


#1

I was wondering how you use a custom plasma texture for the plasma launcher i know the Unit mod does but i dont see anything in the Cruiser_mega_plasma that allows it to use the custom animation it does

[config]
unlockcost = 12000
lockable = 1
armour_penetration = 100
category = "WEAPONS"
classname = "SIM_PlasmaLauncherModule"
cost = 1615
crew_required = 30
damage = 180
description = "Plasma is a efficient method to cleanly dispose of unwanted garbage. So if you can't bring the garbage to the plasma, take the plasma to the garbage"
fire_interval = 3500
fuel = 3000
guiname = "Mega Plasma Launcher"
hitpoints = 320
icon = turret_mega_plas_v0_icon.dds
min_range = 500
max_range = 1250
name = "cruiser_mega_plasma"
optimum_range = 900
powerconsumed = 36
restricted = "unit"
shield_penetration = 100
size = "CRUISER"
sound = data/sounds/fusion_torpedo2.ogg
soundvolume = 1.0
speed = 6.0
spritesize = 14.0
tracking_speed = 0.4
turnspeed = 0.5
turret_sprite = "mega_plas_v1"
turretsize = 30.0
weight = 349.5
slot_type = TURRET
style = FRAGMENTED
uisortpos = 60040

[dataitems]
0 = cost,DECIMAL
1 = weight,DECIMAL
2 = hitpoints,DECIMAL
3 = powerconsumed,DECIMAL
4 = max_range,DECIMAL
5 = damage,DECIMAL
6 = fire_interval,INTEGER
7 = tracking_speed,DECIMAL
8 = shield_penetration,DECIMAL
9 = armour_penetration,DECIMAL
10 = fuel,DECIMAL
11 = speed,DECIMAL
13 = crew_required,INTEGER
14 = optimum_range,DECIMAL
15 = min_range,DECIMAL

i can do what i want with a custom bullet, i am more annoyed i cant figure out how. thanks in advance

While i wish the the mega plasma launcher uses a custom graphic. Unfortuantly we can not use custom graphics for plasma.

While its not obvious in the code you posted, the “glowy ball” is controled by this line:
style = FRAGMENTED
The only other alternate to this style is STANDARD (i am not aware of any others)

As i mentioned earlier, we can not create custome plasma graphics without changing the original ones.
Case in point - Slightly altered version of the Fragmented Graphic
