After hours and hours of relentless working, I’ve got a system that allows for (drumroll, please) moddable weapons!

You can customize bullet movement with LUA code, change how much damage they do, change how a weapon looks, sounds, feel, whatever. It’s a pretty robust system, and after messing around with it for a few hours, I’ve come up with some simple, but interesting weapons.

Hopefully, this, coupled with the new inventory system I introduced not too long ago, will allow for a much more diverse range of weaponry and play styles. I’ll probably be releasing a preview build with the new inventory/weapon/achievement systems soon — though the preview won’t really contain any new content, as I intend it to be a tool for mod makers more than a new version of the main game for people to play through.

    Excellant! Once you release the new preview, I’ll start working on my mod. (I think I have some good ideas!) Also, custom weapons are awesome! Great job Mr. Podunkian.

    randomQuestion — no they don’t. this has more to do with the inventory overhaul + adchievements than it does with the new weapons system, though.

    Sam — no, you can’t set ammo for custom weapons, but since the ammo counter says “ammo” instead of, say, “missiles,” you could always just do a universal ammo system or something along those lines.
