Weapon Mod for 2.5 dev
« on: October 05, 2013, 07:22:34 pm »
This is a small weapon mod that adds 3 new weapons to the Game all with unique models , ammunition and textures. Plus UFOpedia entries.
   What you get-
       1   Webb .455 Revolver - Fires traditional ammo and with some research Micro-rockets dealing explosive damage.
       2   PlasmaThrower - An upgrade to the flamethrower, in addition to sending out sheets of flame can fire a focused beam that can cut straight through walls and finally can launch a plasma bomb.
       3   Advanced LaserRifle - An enhanced laserrifle/heavy laser has standard wave , an overcharge fire mode for a single massive blast and a cascade fire mode firing four shots.

   If using with existing saves new items will have there prices set to 0 in the market (I think market prices are initalised at campaign start). And you will need to view your research to update the research projects and production screens.
   New campaign starts will have none of these issue.

This is for 2.5 dev versions

Place the AJguns folder in a folder called mods (create one if you need to) in your ufoai install folder see here for info
http://ufoai.org/wiki/Mod

Start game with      ./ufo +set fs_gamedir ajguns   (I like to create a new shortcut) and have fun

Edit- renamed all files to lowercase to maintain cross platform compatability, removed some redundant files and fixed the email issue.

And a big thankyou to the UFO ai team for all their hard work

Renamed all files and checked all scripts , also discovered some redundant files and noticed I had used wrong research file (it had the email notifications removed) so fixed that.

I used Blender to make the weapons and Gimp to make the textures both free programs. You just need to download the md2 import/export and Tag scripts from here http://ufoai.org/wiki/Modelling/Blender
 Unfortunately I'm a little busy at the moment so making the m4 myself isnt possibly (at least not this year)....but I do recommend having a go yourself there are lots of good blender tutorials out there.
Feel free to ask any questions though in the artwork forum http://ufoai.org/forum/index.php/board,4.0.html there is good UFO:AI specific modelling info there too.

ok added a rough uv map , set it up for a texture called 81.png (by changing datablock value to .81 ) and scaled it based on the assault rifle in game. Didnt get a chance to test in game though
