Post General Industries - Formerly the L-GED
Welcome to General Industries


We make stuff you buy.
'Morning DRLFF, this is my second released mod counting, and a submission into the current mod contest.


Credits go to Shook for letting me base stuff off his Mortar in the Pelian Army, Gotcha, for the sounds he let me use from his wonderful Unitec, Weegee, for helps, the creator of the Jericho Missile for his shockwave effects, GameBanana, and the creators of Battlefield: Bad Company for some sounds.

Anyway, down to business. This mod has now evolved from just the LGED. based on my first (unreleased) mod ever, General Industries provides actors, weapons, and explosives to the consumer. lots more stuff will be added later.

The mod currently includes five actors, nine guns, and a couple of bombs. Let's start with the actors:

Mercenary

Image

Professional mercenary, hired at your cost. Comes with an HK416 and Glock 17C.

Breacher

Image

First man in, armed with an FP6 breaching shotgun and G17C.

Grenadier

Image

Name says it all, equipped with a Milkor MGL and duel G18Cs.

Scout Sniper

Image

Trained to uh.. look further forward than other soldiers, these scout snipers will harass targets at range with their SVU sniper rifles.

HevRec Marine

Image

Heavy Reconnaissance light anti-armour Marine, armed with a P90 and M95 long range sniper rifle.

Juggernaut

Image

Walking tank. Comes with an RPK-74 and M79 'Thumper'.



Included in the mod are a few guns, too. The actors will usually have a pretty satisfying loadout, but you can purchase the following weapons for other actors.

Has a few other things but I'm hungry atm.


Old part of the mod:

Image
This is the Laser-Guided Explosives Designator device, found under guns. It does as it's name suggests.


In addition to the LGED, a thermobaric rocket launcher is also included.
Launcher, Thermobaric, Infantry, model 4, or LTI-4
Image
Fires thermobaric rockets with a weakened effect similar to that of the FAE.


There are faction Lua files for General Industries in the /Factions folder, for use with Block Wars, Cortex Shock and Tartarus.

Please note that all of these weapons - especially the FAE - induce quite a bit of lag.
I'm open to suggestions, and as always, please feel free to leave a comment.



Older versions:

Enjoy.

Wow, it's like if you had every kind of artillery in one package.

And the bunker buster is the most unique bunker buster I've seen.

Post Re: [Modding Contest Entry: Artillery] The L-GED
Is it possible to make the bunker buster, act similar to it's current state, but have some sort of limit to it's maximum penetration depth? To keep it from sniping a brain in a very heavily armored bunker with no airspace till the brain chamber? In it's current state it seems the only way to defend against this is to have hallways above the brain chamber, or make air filled "spaced armor" packages laminated above it.

And perfectly, if you let me add.

What kind of madman doesn't have hallways of some kind above their brain chamber/command center anyway? That implies to me that you're either sealing the brain in a tiny box - which is impossible under current placement rules without mods - or you're putting it to the far left/right of the base and having it surrounded only by dirt/etc.

Sounds more like someone needs to take some base design courses! :roll:

Another nice piece of work, Ketten, although the FAE bomb sprite looks a little silly. I think it's the harpoon point and large, water-tank-blue fuel container.

Post Re: [Modding Contest Entry: Artillery] The L-GED
Let me clarify, when I build my bases to withstand a massive enemy assault I usually put my brain chamber almost at the bottom of the map, with alot of horizontal bunker walls above it. And to get to the chamber it is usually a long series of hallways and bulkheads coming at it horizontally but never above it. This makes the base extremely hard to crack for people, and keeps the AI busy for a long time, with very little direct intervention. It seems a little silly to have this munition penetrate a 1000 pixels of dirt, than 500 of reinforced concrete and blow up in the chamber every time. Modern bunker busters that are much larger than this one have a maximum penetration distance beyond which you just gonna piss off the occupants. It would be great in my opinion if this bomb would function like it is now but lets say after this bomb goes through at least 800 pixels of material without encountering airspace it detonates prematurely. But I will say this is the best bunker buster I've seen yet if perhaps a bit over powered. And the Thermobaric bomb, and barrage of explosively formed penetrators are marvelous :cool:

Post Re: [Modding Contest Entry: Artillery] The L-GED
This new revised version is superb :shock: One more thought, in my previous .ini only experiments with my own designated strike weaponry. I made attempts to make the spawned weapon always come in off screen. I made the projectile gib into my strike offset by y -1300 pixels any more and the weapon would cease to function. I wanted to make this work because on very tall maps the munitions would still spawn visibly. Is it possible through .lua to make the weapon always spawn at the zenith of the map like crafts do? Because in the current state of your mod, or my own .ini attempts these types of weapons could be abused by using them at the bottom of a base to make the warheads spawn inside of a higher level in the base. Or just to avoid them by maneuvering your actor or craft above the deployment altitude. Perhaps someone with more modding skill can make this happen? I play alot of split screen in this game so plugging exploits is important to me, and to make a more polished experience.

It's compressed on a .zip, but after extracting the files you get it all in a folder with the extension .rte.

It's possible using Lua, though I've no idea how to make it happen. I'll look into it.
