Post quick ammo glow color question
Is it possible to alternate the glow effect colors in ammo particles, so that each bullet is a different color from the last?
Thanks in advance.

With only ini code, no. Ini could would allow you a maximum of two different colors (Round and Tracer).

You would have to use Lua to create bullets - the gun itself fires what is referred to as a "null" bullet, which is a projectile with the same mass and velocity as it's intended to shoot, but HitsMOs = 0 and with a short LifeTime (5 or something).

The gun would then have a script that checks whenever the gun is fired, and then spawns a specific colored MOPixel at the gun's muzzle and throws it in the direction that the gun is facing.

Dummy.rte/Devices/Weapons/Annihiliator.lua

has an example of a gun that uses Lua for spawning projectiles, which you can use as reference, but you'll have to trim it down a lot to get rid of the charging mechanic.

I'm guessing it's also possible to have each bullet alternate colors from a set selection? through Lua I mean.

Yup. You'd need do define a MOPixel in ini for each specific color that you'd want, and then the script would control which MOPixel to spawn for the bullet.
