Post Replacing HDFirearm with an MOSRotating upon firing (solved)
I need a script for a panzerfaust-like weapon I'm making. It needs to do these two things

1. Delete the firearm after it fires
2. Within that same frame, create an MOSRotating that will take on the firearm's position, angle and hflipped properties

So a script that will make it look like the weapon is discarded the moment it was fired.

Can't you just make the emitter fired send some particles backwards that gibs it and make the mosr a gib?

Same effect, no Lua required.

I could but I'd rather avoid doing that, as I'd like the gun to also gib like normal. My preference for lua for this really just comes down to aesthetics.

Okay, lock this thread. I managed to do it on my own.

I'm going to be reusing this thread for another request, one that's quite a ways out of my scope for lua coding.

So, I made this big bastard here:
Image

As you can see he has his own gun.
I want to make it so the gun cannot be dropped (voluntarily or involuntarily). (maybe check for if the gun is dropped, then replant it in the owner's inventory)
I also want the mech to not pickup any other weapons, or force it to drop or gib the weapon immediately on pickup.

That way the mech can only use the gun that was made for it and no other gun.

I tried doing it on my own but failed miserably, so any help would be appreciated.

Additional information
1. When the mech dies, I plan on making it so that it and everything attached to it gibs.
2. The gun itself is set to not be hit by MOs

Think you can mess around with charheight to make it not pick up anything.

And have its health disappear? Not really an option in my opinion.

Bad Boy gave me this bit of code:
Code:
   if not self:HasObject("Gun Name Here") then
      self:AddInventoryItem(CreateHDFirearm("Gun Name Here" , "ModName.rte"));
   end

Using a modification of this would at least solve the 'always have this gun' bit.

i did it

Code:
function Create(self)
   self.myGun = CreateHDFirearm("OniTech Reaper")

   --purge inventory

   for i=1,MovableMan:GetMOIDCount()-1 do
      local mo = MovableMan:GetMOFromID(i);

      if mo.RootID == self.ID and mo:IsHeldDevice() then

         mo = ToHeldDevice(mo);
         if mo.PresetName ~= "OniTech Reaper" then
            mo:ToDelete(true);
         end
      end
   end

   self:AddInventoryItem(self.myGun);
   self:EquipFirearm(true);
end

function Update(self)

   if self.InventorySize == 1 then      --something was just picked up

      --find gun
      for i=1,MovableMan:GetMOIDCount()-1 do
         local mo = MovableMan:GetMOFromID(i);

         if mo.RootID == self.ID and mo:IsHeldDevice() then

            mo = ToHeldDevice(mo);
            if mo.PresetName ~= "OniTech Reaper" then
               --this gun isnt our gun, break it
               mo:GibThis();
               self:EquipFirearm(true);
               break;
            end
         end
      end
   else
      if self.myGun.RootID ~= self.ID and (not self.myGun:IsAttached()) then   
         --special weapon was dropped, put it back in inventory
      
         local magCount = self.myGun.Magazine.RoundCount;
         self.myGun.ToDelete = true;

         local newGun = CreateHDFirearm("OniTech Reaper")
         newGun.Magazine.RoundCount = magCount;

         self:AddInventoryItem(newGun);
         self.myGun = newGun;
      end
   end
end


could probably be optimized, but at least it works.

You could just have gone the easy way and get the actor's controller and use

Code:
self:GetController():SetState(Controller.WEAPON_PICKUP, false)
self:GetController():SetState(Controller.WEAPON_DROP, false)

Does that keep the player from picking up stuff?

Its what I used for my SAW Mech.

Actually I remember the drop command still worked though, so keep the replacing your inventory code part.
