I've added the Malevolence to Forces of Corruption as a super for the Consortium. I was wondering if anyone knows how to code a special ability that will temporarily turn off other weapons and drastically reduce shield regeneration (I think I know how to do this part) and fire the Ion shot (I have particles and such for it) from either side once. It will then take a while to re-charge before it can be fired again. I really wouldn't like to have a "rocket mode" type SA that just turn on the hardpoints that fire the weapons (which is what I have now). Any help/advice is greatly appreciated!

Honestly, that sounds like the kind of thing you'd need LUA for. Unless Barrage has lines for messing with shield regeneration and weapon recharge times.

What kind of LUA work would have to be done? And I believe barrage (or at least some Special Abilities) do have lines for weapon and shield recharge.

that would probably be in the projectile data, maybe try a new particle for weaken enemy like on the sundered heart

Alright so here's what I've got. I've got the projectile and everything ready (code and everything for it). I just need the special ability for the ship istself. Any ideas on that?

As far as I know, generic lines like shield recharge, rate of fire, etc. can be used in all abilities.

Actually the weaken ability from Sundared heart sounds the best idea, but just make a clone of it, and increase how much it actually weakens the ships. also steal the animations from the one consortium ion cannon blast. the one with the two huge cannons....forgot the name.

I think you may be thinking about Tybers weapon charge...
