I need some advice and suggestions on how to make the Gemini weapon apply only to the ship that is using it. I want to make this the only special weapon of my Prometheus class.
In terms of game balance, I want it to last about thirty seconds, and recharge about once every three minutes. Any suggestions or recommendations?
Have you tried making it a self-targetting only weapon yet? Thats set in the ordinance file I believe. I've seen it work before so I know thats possible.
You can set the recharge rate via special weapon energy rates in the ship .ODF entry. So if it takes three minutes, make sure your energy cost recharges after three minutes.... it'll take a little calculating to get right but it'll work nicely.
Also, I don't think you can self-inflict the Gemini weapon. Might be hard-coded. I don't really use the Gemini weapon all that often (although it does have one special purpose in the upcoming Starbase 34 Starfleet compilation mod) so my experimentation with it has been minimal.....
