I was wondering, is there a way to just install this only:

4.Addition of additional vanilla equipment/stations/blueprints to the shop (Is there anything particular you would like to see available?)

I.e. the beam weapons forges, etc, without the extra lasers?

Thanks
By editing a single script you can remove the additional weapons from the availability list, but as the AI do not use them to my knowledge (I have done nothing to force this and have no immediate plans to) there would be little by way of benefit (especially since integrating this mod with other weapon mods is rather easy - appending a couple of entries to the TBullets and TLasers files). Nobody is forcing the use of the new weapons, but the choice is yours...

Oh and by the way most of the beam weapons are rather pants, I think only the PALC and PBC actually have any real use with the Vanilla ships and the TBLC may be of some use in Cadius's mod, FBC though is a bit of a waste of space.

EDIT: BTW There are no workable Beam Weapon forges the player can own in Vanilla currently (so I can not add what does not exist ;)), but this mod should make such luxuries near enough unnecessary.

Roger your script is awesome, I installed after a recommendation From Cadius to use in conjunction with his mod and it has hit the spot, May I place a small request though, would you consider making terran versions of the PBE and MD for the terran fighters, lol after the MD was based on ancient earth technology. Again thank you for this script.

Tested it out, and oh yes. It met my expectations ;)

I give this mod three cheese sandwiches and a cold beer.

Cadius adviced me to present you my ideas about two new Terran weapons that could be useful in your mod:

Thanks for the input guys... will look into the suggestions.

Adding a Terran version of the MD is plausable (will probably look at making it a little beefier perhaps and based on the EMPC mount - will look into it and try to balance it appropriatly - perhaps even make it energy based proving how Terran technology has advanced but will try to balance it with the current weapons), and making PBE/IRE alternatives to the EMPC should be doable.

Will look at the other suggestions and see what I can put together with vanilla weapon balance in mind - I am already allowing the integration of my mod with other mods so if the CMOD3 wishes to integrate my weapons and adjust them accordingly that is down to the CMOD3 authors.

Will aim to get a 0.7 out with at least some of the requested weapons this weekend.

0.7 development under way...

Planning to release FOUR new fighter class weapons:-
  • APE (Alpha Particle Emitter) - Similar to an IRE but 25% of the cost of the EMPC
    PNC (Phased Neutron Cannon) - Basically an energy based Mass Driver costed at 50% of the EMPC
    EPC (Electron Particle Cannon) - Similar to a PBE but costed at 50% of the EMPC
    CPC (Charged Positron Cannon) - Disrupts shields, weapons, and engines but does little damage to the target costed at 50% of the EMPC
All have 1km with 1km/s speed (bar the APE which has only 500m/s speed) and ~314 rounds per minute refire rate.

are you going to release a version merged with CMOD3? or at least balanced like CMOD 3 so i can merge them myself
When ever people agree with me i always feel i must be wrong.

No, there is no intention to do so at this time... my time is rather limited due to RW commitments, and my main focus is balancing versus vanilla.

The intent is to allow other modders to incorporate my new weapons into their mods (e.g. CMOD3) permit them to make appropriate "balancing" or "performance" adjustments to the weapons/bullets as they see fit providing they provide due credit for my work and reference which version of the AWRM they baseline from.

The detailed information about the weapon balance is kept up to date here on the TXU Wiki, so if anyone wants to send me CMOD3 balanced stats for the AWRM weapons I will publish (and try to maintain - depends on how different the balance is) a CMOD3 balance patch to aid with user merging.
