I am wondering, do we currently have the ability to create direct-fire weapons with HE rounds in 1.13? I was planning on spriting a monster gun or two (NTW-20 and/or RT-20), but I don't want to do it if they will not be workable in-game. Both rifles are mostly designed to fire 20mm HE rounds (although the NTW-20 can be converted to 14.5x114 Russian), hence my question.

Yes, we can tie explosive indexes to explosive ammo. Right now I'm not sure how many other mods beyond The Scopion's Renegade Republic and my mods have this in use.

How does that work?

Get latest AIMNAS and try for yourself. Wink


Just kidding... well actually it was rather easy (thanks to Bonechucker for the idea).

I just made an additional M79, that's actually classified as gun and not as launcher. If you use the 40mm buckshot to load the M79 grenade launcher, it transforms the M79 into an M79 direct shot launcher that can then be loaded with the 40mm buckshot round. If you use any other grenade on the direct shot version you'll get the regular M79 back.

The 40mm buckshot is fun, but very slow to fire and only effective at close range.

There's a reason the "Blooper" got sidelined by underbarrel launchers, after all. Wink

Random thought: shotgun slugs are big enough (~18-19mm in 12 gauge, IIRC) to carry a meaningful explosive payload, aren't they? I know such have been sporadically experimented with too... around the smallest practical diameter for HEAT too, AFAIK.

See the recent postings concerning FRAG-12 rounds:
- I've had them in UC-1.13NAS for a while now
- future AIMNAS will have them - http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/board/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=270375#Post270375
- Someone has made a general request for them - http://www.ja-galaxy-forum.com/board/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=270364#Post270364


Funny how these posts all came within a few days. Was there something on TV or in the news recently? This capability was all but ignored when we (modders) were lobbying for it a few years back.

"Expendables" featured the HEAP version, IIRC... fired from the AA-12, which seems to be Hollywood's most recent "evil assault shotgun" darling. :dontknow2:
