 Activity: Weapon test
This activity is designed to test weapons. Select "Controller" (player switched to it by default) and use WSAD to change spawn parameters. You can order dropships with weapons as usual, but you can also open Tactics.lua and add values to self.Weapons list. All HDFirearms from this list will be added to player actor's inventory when activity starts. You can add only "HDFirearm"-class items to this list.

Press 'SPACE' to ReloadAllScripts().

Press 'B' to toggle build mode.

Set self.EnemyWeapons = nil to equip targets with their faction-specific weapons.


Automating Faction Test:

If you want to automate your faction test, open Scripts/Tactics2.lua and edit options you need

Code:
------ USER SETTINGS ------------------------------
self.RestartEvery = 0 -- Restart activity every N rounds to restore terrain
self.Randomize = true -- Enable random faction selection for each round, if PrimaryFaction is set only 2nd faction will be random
self.BudgetBased = true -- Turn budget mode on/off.
self.PrimaryFaction = nil -- Set fixed primary faction to test
---------------------------------------------------


With vanilla factions, psyclones and bears I've made it run for 4.5 hours (650+ rounds) without any crashes.

This activity supports faction files from Unmapped Lands 2.

And not a single reply was given. Maybe because we already got a Firing Range :L
EDIT: Well, the "Dummies" got pistols which get destroyed when they die. When they want to come towards you, they simply learn How to Fly.

The above comment made me laugh. But firing ranges are basically a blank map. But good work I like it.

You can just edit existing or add your own faction file which will contain only behemoth instead of ordinary troops.

Added Dummy mode. In this mode activity spawns a special ronin-based dummy actors and calculates damage taken by them. It shows total damage made by weapon, damage per second and max damage per second. Dummy actors don't bleed, so the numbers you get are purely synthetic, but at least you can roughly compare some automatic guns. This thing does not work well with mostly impulse-based weapons such as some explosives, and will show ridiculous numbers if you rip dummies apart. You can enable dummy mode via the controller in Weapon Test activity or enable it by default if you set self.DummyMode = true.

In Faction Test activity you can now specify a list of factions against which you wish to run automated tests and specify a single faction to use as a primary faction if you want to test your faction against all vanilla factions. To do this you'll need to slightly edit Tactics2.lua's USER SETTINGS section, but everything is simple.
