Weapon Labs,
Build your own weapon, for the first time in Transcendence history, you can Create a totally new weapon from an in game station! About 35000 Variants available!

Balance suggestions are always welcome, as are ideas and other comments.

Thanks to WillyTheSquid for grahpics (pixel editing, adding lighting, recoloring) Transgeek for ideas and some code work, Amariithynar for a bit of testing,
And All the guys on IRC for support!

All non-mission vanilla weapons are recyclable

Updated at 177 dls, Now out of beta :D
fixed power use and some text, added the ability to make custom weapon mount in the launcher slot (Dual Wield Weapons!! :D )
Well, its Finally here! After hours of coding since the release of 1.08b,

Also, A massive Thank You to George who made this all possible by adding the Typcreate function, with out it, this wouldn't exist!

Noticed a couple of bugs with the beta:

One, if you recycle a damaged weapon it recycles... and the weapon remains as well! OK, it costs a few thousand to recycle but still a bit off :)

Other, I tried to make a weapon with a Positron weapon module and it came up with an error. Tried with single barrel and omni, several different damage levels and it all comes with the same error.Image

*smiles* Yes, I assumed you were still playing around with the costs. I made a particle, lev 3 dam omni and it sold for 10,000. I made a plasma the same and... it sold for 1200! Um... ;) Did 58 dam too

This is very cool mod to play with. Keep up the good work... Um, any chance of launcher mode main weapons? Like 400 weapons mod did? I'm not suggesting you add in all of his weapons to recycle and use! Eek! That would take a while. Just to be able to use 'launcher mounts', 'launcher omni mounts' etc.

And how is ROF calculated in this? So far every weapon I've made has been 3.8 shots per sec. Have I just missed high ROF mounts? Just curious.

Done, Updated on xelerus @ 130 dls

when recycling damaged weapons, you might lose a few parts, when recycling undamaged weapons you might lose 1 part, if you dont like it, tell me, and i can remove it,
imo it makes it a bit more balanced

Code: Select all

added PD weapon, (Still beta, feedback pls)  stations have a limit of sys level + 2 for weapon knowledge 
Edit, also added power use to end config screen, just for Patupi :)

Hmm, given the price not sure about loosing a part on fully functional weapon recycling, but definitely like the loss on damaged. Makes sense. If the non-Beta version of this station appears later in the game (I got it in the third system out Ross 248) it should be fine. Money isn't quite as much of an issue then.

Thanks for the power display update :)

Caught another bug, I think with repeating mount. Tried to make a repeating, particle, lev 7 damage, mining, fixed mount weapon and got this:

Image

Other than that it looks real good so far. Recycling is working fine. Still not sure about loosing parts from non-damaged weapons. Maybe if the cost to recycle varies more with weapon level? Cheaper with low level, higher with high level. I'll think on that.

(EDIT:)
OK, it isn't repeating thats doing it. Did it with single, wall... turreted and fixed. Is there a conflict with modules from the old version? Should I get rid of all the weapon parts I had from the previous version of this mod and start collecting new ones? Just a thought as to what's causing this.
