    I was thinking of the Grenades all over FO2, maybe if it was possible to make use of it as ammunition for a New Weapon, say a Grenade Launcher? This would allow players to make use of the Grenades and use the Small Guns Skill?

    Actually you would just be playing around with the stats.
    The Picture would be the 10mm SMG then the Frms will be the same but after the "fire" you will see the item being "thrown". This weapon would have its accuracy applied to the Small Guns Skill instead of the Throwing Skill.
    It would only be able to use: Frag,Pulse & Plasma Grenades

    The Big Rifle Frame doesn't look like a "Big" .45 Revolver :mrgreen: So I go with 10mm SMG instead

    Doesn't quite make sense for me. Ammo for Grenade Launcher is different than regular hand grenades. It's done quite well in FT:BOS however.

    Based on those pictures, I'd make it a rifle/shotgun with a high ST requirement and AP cost, and a low ammo capacity. An SMG doesn't really seem to fit. That's just one guy's opinion though.

    I'm not sure that thrown weapons could also be treated as ammunition, but I'm probably not the guy to ask.

    Great Idea, man. My only concern is that small
    guns is already too good, (easily the best weapons in the
    game) so although the pic above clearly indicates its
    a small gun maybe it should be big.

    Id be happy to do the FRM's. There wouldnt be
    many, and i could do i like in terminator 2 when
    he tips the empty cartridge out and flicks the new
    one in :) AWESOME!

    I like your enthusiasm. But, would it really be that easy? I mean, you are talking about .frm's for multiple directions for all of the possible armor the character could wear. I would have thought that would have been a huge pain.

    You are right. Two totally different classes of items. One thought that occurred to me is that you could use the Mr. Fixit mod from TeamX. Change the code (it comes with instructions how to modify it yourself) to make ammunition with a high enough skill out of those grenades. This ammunition would be a new type, of course, and you'd have to use the other editors to create that. Still, not an impossible feat. Good luck.

    It seems that mini-boss/party member on SAD is closer to be done than i expected *-*
    Going to start to work on the body FRMs.

    *edit*
    Seems i need more background work than i thought, the progs i have doesn't seem to be able to open the original game FRMs.

    How do i "decompress" the critter file?

    Well this thought just came into my head when I remembered playing C&C Renegade back last year, in Multiplayer the GDI had Grenade Troopers which well....had Grenade Launchers, basically they were a a bit fun to use since you could play with gravity to shoot over walls and stuff, they looked like a cross between a SMG,Combat Shotgun and a .45 Revolver, They only had 6 Shots and when they were reloaded in the same fashion as a revolver but shot in the same fashion as a Shotgun, hope you still get what i'm saying...

    The Grenade Launcher from Bioshock used the same Grenade you thrown as ammunition, it looked like it was made from old coffie cans, it would fit pretty good in fallout i think.

    So...its possible to add it to FO2 then? I was thinking if this was possible, I would ask Killap to make a GL Patch Added into the Ressurection Patch he is working on...
