You could use mass. laser particles should have next to no mass. they wont, of course, as everyone is an idiot when they make particles, but it would be one way to do it.
I do like the descriptor tag idea though. would be a good way to handle situational wounds on an actor.

You'd need the cooperation of every mod maker and have everyone trust you give them an edited base.rte where every particle has Lua on it to say whether its kinetic or not, not to mention maybe not everyone will want to.

Not going to happen.

Would it be possible to have a lua script which would detect of the round had a glow attached to it? I mean, that'd be close enough to what you want, right?

Its an emitter, not a glow usually.
Best way to do it would be to detect whether a glow was within so and so pixels of a MOPixel.
Wouldn't be very reliable.

And that doesn't even detect the lasers that are simply blue bullets fired like lasers (in beams). Like some DSTech ones.
Unless you can read the colour of rounds as they hit, but then again people don't have defined colours for lasers and bullets that are used globally.

OOoo, but you may have something there. How about armor which is protective against all pixels which are black or gray? That would just about cover ya.


Edit: also probably pretty impossible.

Well, only problem is, bullets are usually more orange/yellow than dark colors.

I do not think you can check the color of a MOPixel.

Wow, yeah, you need a list of functions for a basic "if" instruction.
Code:
If (R=255, G=255, B=255)
  Then (instruction)
  Else (instruction 2)
Endif.

Was it really that hard? Hold on, this could actually work, if one were to use pseudo-attachables and a shitload of Lua. But there would still be the problem of bullet colors. I mean, it would work perfectly against vanilla stuff, but when it comes to modding, you'd have to ask everyone to use standardized colors. I for one am willing to do so, but I'm just one person.

No, you can't check colour, my bad (got corrected by someone who actually knows what they're talking about).
(Grif)
But anyway, you could just have the ablative armour be easily gibbed attachables that slow down particles in a small radius on gibbing; lasers tend to be a veritable stream of particles and will hence be only minimally affected by the ablative armour.

I think that may work.

Lol.

No.
You obviously have no idea what Lua even looks like.

If that were even true...
Code:
For particle in MovableMan.Particles do
  If particle:Color(R=255,G=255,B=255) == true then
    -- blah
  end
end

That wasn't supposed to be Lua, smartass, just pseudocode.
