Post The Converter (Repent you!)
Hey all, new guy here. I heard something about rockets turning enemies to your dudes, so I made something. This is probably my third mod, and it currently faces only left. Will update with pics and a right-facing converter (although it'll probably say NI istead of IN)...

UPDATE: Now with added suckerage. A big giant grouper (Metal Slug sprites again) and a piece of Bermuda Triangle. Original converter now has custom gibs. Still no screenshots though.

File comment: Since the glitch got fixed in most people's CC, I made some suckers that simply makes your enemy disappear.

Nice sprite. I won't test because I can't be arsed, but nice sprite all the same.

I don't understand your description. What does it do now?

To Rock:
You basically put it on the ground and open it like a dropship. If an enemy soldier gets sucked in, he converts to your side. Quite a devious device in a base corridor, I must say!

And I see Metal Slug sprites.

Its fun to use as a storage crate type thing, but the whole converting thing doesn't work. I suck them in, close it, open again and they pop out still on the opposite team. : /

I'm pretty sure it's supposed to do that with craft...

Maybe it was a glitch that was fixed or something. Which is a shame, this mod would have been brilliant otherwise.

Might have been only one type of craft? Only dropships or only rockets may have the bug. I reserve the right to be wrong.

It works for me. The only downside is that AI shoots it and it usually gets destroyed before it can convert anyone.

It also crashed on me while I was controlling the converted unit.

Great mod. Needs custom gib sprites.

I had the exact same Idea! I even included it into the MSS (Commented in the Index).
I didn't release it because my pinned dropships would gib on their own after a while.

How did you get around it?

I dunno about dropships, Zalo, but the original drop crate was a rocket, and it could be attached by adding a PinStrength... So I tried editing some stuff...

Next time I'll try a Dropship. Or maybe finish the doors on that organic bunker modules first...

I just had a spark of genius, maybe converting doesn't work on the IGF build?

That would explain why it works for some and not for others.

I shall test this theory when I get access to my laptop.

By the way, I figured out how to steal enemy actors and convert them to your side, for those of you who may not know.

First, you need to abduct an enemy actor.
Then,, you leave your craft to the AI.

Then you switch back, and if you drop off the abducted actor, he'll come back, only on your side.

Speaking of abductors, is anyone here interested in making a UFO specifically for this purpose?

That's how this works :wink:
