civilian resistance (or plasma fodder)
« on: April 21, 2011, 12:03:17 am »
yeah, so i haven't played this game for a while (shame the fps is no more :( ) and have recently downloaded the latest version, and whilst playing i got realy fed up of having my civilians all filled with plasma,
so, im trying to arm my civilians, turn them into a resitance movement or something (not alot of thought has gone into naming them) but i cant find theh dam file the eqiup_civilians is in... am i gonna have to write one. cus honetly i havent written a script for a good couple of years ( since warzone2100... long story)

 any ideas/help would be verr gratefull

Don't forget to alter the civilian AI too...and most likely, to get a bit of realism you should make some new civilian weapons...like some hunting rifles, shotguns, more weak pistols, possibly even AK-47 for some countries (yea, I'm sure it will still be in use at 2084)...

Actually yes, it is still in use. The backstory says the New Africa still uses US antiques (M16/M4) and century-old Soviet equipment (okay truth to be told, it would most likely be the AK-74 or AK-10*, not AKM). It is a good design so there's no actual reason for it to not be in use.
We won't be seeing any one of those in-game though. At least, not officially. Modders can include them naturally.

ok, so far i have given my civilians weapons from the civilian_gang pool, updated their AI, with mixed results.
lol they charge in weapons blazing (updated civilian_gang pool to contain more and poor weapons (yet to redisign some new blasters thinkin maybe some AK's, a new pistol an maybe some molotovs  ;) ) but they are ALL TERRIBLE SHOTS and fall down dead with just a meer dirty look from those Taman bastards.
need to update teh stats file but i cant find it  ???
Also as i playin on verr hard i had to update the campaign.ufo otherwise every nation gets verr unhapy verr quick with their citizen muppets chargin in too their death at every mission/crash. other than those little hiccups i think im on a winner also as im just a lazy tweaker rather than a bona fide coder any1 have any good lookin weapon picks

In the stable (2.3) version stats are hard coded if you don't mind recompiling the game they are in game/inv_shared.c IIRC

In current dev version you can find them in team_templates.ufo
