I'm working on a mod for Chang's Bird of Prey, and have been tinkering with the prospect of firing while cloaked for quite some time now..Is this even possible? Does anyone have any ideas on what I need to edit to do this?

Hey, I think it is possible, but you probably have to go through a hell lot of editing, cause I think it's cahin linked to other things, like phasers, and Torps.

If you do get it done, then send me something. I already finished my No shields, and no Phasers mod. It's like Andromeda, only Torpedos.... very cool. The only thing to do, is dodge the torps!!!

Stay in touch

I was thinking about doing a whole new weapon, using the overall aspects from the normal cloaking device, but doing whatever it takes to get it to fire while cloaked. I don't want to link it to the AI or anything, not yet at least. The idea of the new weapon would also keep the cloaking device on other ships from doing the same, I just can't find the PY or the PYC file that controls the cloaking device.

Which variable is that?

And while I never could fire while cloaked, I was able to launch a probe, and if you replace the probe model with, say an asteroid, you could make a pretty decent weapon.

There was this one time where i was experimenting using the "Launch Probe" command to launch TIE Fighters, and while trying a script out, I was cloaked, and unbeknownst to me, I had the script set so that the TIE Fighter to warp in, and so I launched one toward a Fed Outpost. The TIE Fighter went to Warp and hit the station, destroying it and pushing it back at about 16,000 KPH! Talk about your super weapon! (^_^)

Lol. That might actually work..using the probe command to launch a torpedo..but can you target the object you want to launch the probe at? I also want it to affect just the BoP..I don't want to launch a probe at a plannet and turn 50 kilometers into a glass floor..The guy up there was talking about an OEP cloaking device script..I was looking for that..and could not find it for anything..
