Does anyone know how to run weapons through Transdata to see if they're overpowered/underpowered? Thanks if anyone can point me in the right direction!

 Try this:

Code: Select all

TransData.exe /itemTable /criteria:w /averageDamage /balanceDamage /range
 That oughtta give you most of the data you’ll want in a tabbed list you can copypasta to a spreadsheet. If you want more data, tack a “/help” onto it to see what else you can get from it. Optionally — and I readily admit that I have no idea if this works on Windows or not — add a “>> WeaponBalanceData.txt” onto the end of it to save the output to a text file.

Of all the things I’ve lost in life, I miss my mind the least. (I’m having a lot more fun without it!)
