Reload + Fireinterval = Total Reload as an option
« on: February 06, 2009, 03:55:28 am »
To understand this perfectly, use a Barrett.

Now, when you reload, you not only need to wait 300 ticks for the actual reload, but you'd also need to wait another 240 ticks before you can shoot again.

For the sake of modders and for more possibilities in weapon balance, I suggest that it should be possible to have ONLY reload and no need to wait for the fireinterval before you can fire.



I also noticed that in the past, when reloading the Spas, the fireinterval would also refresh, which prevents the use of the reload technique. Perhaps this option could be made available for the Spas as well.

Barret has 10 shots and using them all up is enough to kill 10 people with a single mag/clip before you even get to the reloading part. I think that reload is there for a good reason.

And not only that, when you notice someone is reloading their barret, you get a chance to take him out while he's stuck reloading.

I think it would benefit modding purposes only, but not for the real thing. So F12 for modding only.

This only effects barett and m79 - guns I dislike the most, so F11.

Realistically, it will only affect the Barrett. You might as well set the ammo to 1 and fireinterval to 1 and you'd replicate it, pretty much. F11.

i think stm meant that the fireinterval would be only the 1st bullet, the others would have the normal fireinterval
f13, we will see

Then again, there are cases whereby I want a weapon to have something similar, but with limited amount of ammo per clip.

That's correct.

Not really. It'd only affect guns with high fireinterval like semis. If it were something like a chainsaw, which has fireinterval 2, it wouldn't make much of a difference.

M79 actually has fireinterval 6.

Ruger is a semi. A semi-automatic in Soldat (though in real life it's bolt-action).

ow, didnt saw that

and spas would be also unaffected, thanks to the reload and shooting being tied to the animation

Unless you make it like the older versions of Spas, whereby fireinterval would refresh with every reload.

This would mainly affect single shot weapons, so no.

First I thought F12, but now I'm not sure.
For example, if you want Barrett to have 300 ticks reload in total (i mean that total time between last shot from the old magazine and fist from the new = 300 ticks) you can do it by setting reload to 60 ticks. Then it would be 60 ticks reload + 240 ticks fireinterval = 300 ticks in total.
What you suggest would be useful for making "total reload" shorter than fireinterval between shots from one magazine - and only for this. And I doubt if doing so is useful for anything.
I won't vote now - if you convince me i'll go F12.

This only effects barett and m79 - guns I dislike the most, so F11.
:)
That's an attitude I don't like.
