View Full Version : Missiles on non-missile ships.
29th Sep 03, 11:13 PM
I'm guessing that this has to be a defined ability of a defined ship (IE, Vagyr Missile corvettes have this ability...?) because whenever i try to add missiles to originally non-missile carrying ships, they don't seem to fire at all.

For example: delete all weapon entries from the hgn attack bomber (this is optional) and put in this line
That alone should make the bomber fire torpedos

That's weird. So it only works on non-turreted ships...?
(yes, i checked the definitions, there's a turreted torpedo launcher too, I put that on my Gun Corvette and didn't work)

well, i assume that you have to the same amount of entries as there are weapon points.
but the torpedoe frigates has 3 entries so i'm a bit confused ;) :dolt:

I think the three entries in the torpedofrigates files are in so the frig can use upgraded torps, once they are researched.
Also, I have so far not really tried to put a torp on a turret, but O tried (and haven´t succeded) putting a torp on the heavy ion subsystem of HBCs.

Ah! now that makes sense ;) thx.
also look at the vaygr torpedoe platform to get an idea how to do turreted missile launchers, i think the turrets are animated, not sure. ;)
that's the line for the weapon in the torpedo platform.
So the only difference besides the Vgr_heavyfusionmissilelauncherturret is that there is the "fire_missile" at the end. if you look at the torpedo frigate lines you'll notice that that part is missing.
edit: Hrm, trie putting a torpedo-turret weapon on the pulsar, but no go...i'll fiddle with it a bit more later but atm it doesn't work.
