Post Changing Gib.
I've never modded before, so sorry if this is a rather newbish question ... but is it possible for a gun to determine how the actor it shoots gibs up ? I'd like to try to make something that explodes people in a rather brilliant display of gold, but the closest way I've been able to figure out so far is to gib the bullet on collision with the actor into a bunch of gold particles ... but then you could just shoot into the ground and make a gold mine.

Hey - that's a good idea too !

No, at the moment what you want to do is impossible, the actor gibs the same way every time.

Alrighty. Isn't there something that'll change particles of one type to another ? Then the gun could just spawn something that has a delayed fire, like a grenade, that embeds itself into the actor that then makes a nice explosion and turns the actor to gold dust. That work :?:

You could make the weapon gib into gold. Such a weapon would be a grenade.

A bit of a topic change here, but how does one convert one material into another ? Like I said, you could kill a clone with an impact weapon and have a delayed-action grenade type device dust him right after.
