Radiation weapons - Question


#1

I see the “payload” and “warhead” variables for bullet and missile weapons respectively, allowing you to add radiation damage to those types of weapons.

Query: can these variables be added to other types of weapons (or are there comparable variables)? I.e, is it possible to make a radiation-bearing beam or plasma weapon?

Also - and this is obviously a question for Cliff - would it be ruinously difficult to allow custom radiation textures? For example, I like the current radiation effect, but It would be nice to be able to make radiation weapons that us that texture but in purple or orange.

No, that is not possible.

A Radiation beam is someting that should be included in the game ages ago, but for some reason Cliffs never did it.

About radiation textures i agree, we need custom radiation textures and of course custom tractor beams.

Well darn.

That squiffs up an idea that’s been kicking around in my head. Oh well, nothing wrong with a little re-concepting here and there.
