The Variant mod is underway!

if your not on the forums, then you probably don't remember the first Variant mod thread. it died out after my computer first died and i lost all my data. But oh well here comes my new one.

What is the variant mod? -A mod that simply takes a ship, and changes it's weapons, and makes it buildable

Why is this a mod, it seems remarkably easy to do. -It is easy but i'm going to be building up onto this so eventually, maybe next version new ships may appear, and then even a new faction mayhaps

How many new "Variants" will there be? -right now i'm thinking around 30-40. if there is a problem with build space, i'll get a golan to act as a building station. thats if necessary.

What are some current ships/ or any examples of this mod. -Hyper velocity Star destroyer -Diamond Boron Star Destroyer -Missile Mon cal -Ionic Mon cal -Mass driver Marauder -Ionic Broadside -plasma krayt (i'm hoping for rescaling a new projectile for the blasts) -Many More

Once it's almost done i'll be asking for beta testers, here and on the forums

Cheers

Oddslayer

Maybe put a diamond boron skipray or something in those terms.

That would be pretty cool. Oddslayer if you need any help with particles, I could help.

This is code that I tested, this will allow for one ship, and it's variants to be only one icon on the build bar. I used it for Mon Calimari Cruisers flying at different levels in space. Just place this in the "story" file.

I've made the MC15, looks like MC30, same model and same hardpoints, though it shoots concussion missiles and has a turbolaser instead of small laser. And i replaced the ability to 'more speed' and power to shields.

For the Acclamator you should have point defense lasers from the crusader instead of its original weapons. Maybe try making the Vengeance fireplasma projectiles instead of mass driver projectiles with the turbolasers being replaced by the Crusader point defense projectiles, but make them green.
