(OUTDATED)[WOTC] Disposable Rocket Launchers

Description
!!! OUTDATED !!!

This mod is outdated. You can still keep using this old version, if you want, it works perfectly fine.

But there is a newer, better version here here:

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2571476425

YOU CAN SWITCH TO THE NEW VERSION MID-CAMPAIGN

FEATURES

This mod adds three tiers of single-shot Disposable Rocket Launchers (DRLs). They offer a heavier alternative to Frag Grenades - they deal more damage and can be used at longer ranges, but they can miss the targeted area and scatter.

Rocket scatter scales with soldier's Aim, and it gets worse if you fire the DRL with only one action remaining.

REQUIREMENTS

X2 WOTC Community Highlander is required.

Safe to add mid-campaign, but I don't recommend doing it during a tactical mission just in case.

HOW TO ACQUIRE

Conventional launchers are available from the start in infinite quantities. They are then upgraded in Proving Grounds: Alien Grenade project will unlock magnetic tier, and Advanced Explosives project will unlock beam tier.

HOW TO USE

Utility Slot - any soldier class can carry a Disposable Launcher in a Utility Slot, however that comes with certain penalties and restrictions:
  • -1 Mobility
  • +20% Detection Radius
  • Cannot carry offensive grenades in other Utility Slots.
  • Penalties are removed once the Launcher is fired and disposed of.
  • Disposable Launchers cannot be carried in Grenade-only slots.
Heavy Weapon Slot - any soldier can carry a Disposable Launcher in Heavy Weapon slot without any penalties or restrictions.

Secondary Weapon Slot - Grenadiers can carry a Disposable Launcher as a Secondary Weapon. If you have Open Class Weapon Restrictions mod, all classes that can use a Grenade Launcher as a secondary weapon will be able to carry a Disposable Launcher in that slot as well.

You're allowed to carry only one Disposable Rocket Launcher per soldier.

KNOWN ISSUES

Sometimes some soldiers become unable to equip a DRL, showing the error message that the soldier already has a DRL equipped. If that happens, use this console command:
UnequipDisposableLaunchers
For best results, use this command twice in a row. It will unequip DRLs from all soldiers in your campaign. Probably shouldn't use this command while you have someone with a DRL on a Covert Action.

CONFIGURATION

The mod is highly configurable through:

..\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\1723334446\Config\XComDisposableLaunchers.ini

COMPATIBILITY

Should be compatible with almost anything.

CREDITS

The Magnetic and Beam launchers are ported from PlanetSide 2. They are owned by Daybreak Games Company, and will be removed at their request.

Thanks to E3245 for his koalified help with PS2 textures and the authentic AT4 model.
Thanks to NeIVIeSiS for making inventory icons.

Thanks to Beaglerush for his consultations on the mod balance and demo-ing the mod during his XCOM 2 streams, which you can watch here[www.twitch.tv].

Thanks to Pavonis Interactive for their rocket scatter code, and to Favid for bringing it over from LW2 to WOTC.

This mod was made possible by my wonderful supporters on Patreon. The theme of the mod was chosen by them with a vote, and their feedback helped shape the mod.

Please consider supporting me on patreon[www.patreon.com] so I can afford the time to make more awesome mods.

Yes, this is included in Mod Jam, and yes it works with LWOTC. It's in the steam collection "Mod Jam+" as well as listed on the Mod Jam page, but...
...it's confused some people because this mod creates an error when it adds to a steam collection, so it's always listed in notes, rather than on a workshop list.

Sometimes better is being less overpowered. You can disable that behavior in MCM if you don't like it.

Calls the new mod better but it takes up 2 slots instead of 1 hmmmmmmmm

OMG OMG!!! That worked! Thank you so much for your help Iridar :D

You might need to run the console command mentioned in this mod's description.

Iridar, I am suffering from most profoundly peculiar bug.

Rookie equipped with disposable rocket launcher -> Promoted to Grenadier -> The disposable rocket launcher still shows up her back even though she is no longer equipped with it. It only shows up in in-mission, not in barracks or any other screens.

Please help >_<

Thank you very much
Finally i can take down Sectopods the proper way. No more small arms fire bullshit (After some .ini tweaks)

@Iridar, thanks.

@The LDs
Since you actually bothered to type out a coherent question (as opposed to lazy muppets that just ask "LWOTC?"), I'll give you the courtesy of the answer:

I don't know.

However, Kiruka has a Mod Jam mod project going on that adds various compatibility patches for all kinds of mods for LWOTC, so perhaps you could check that out, see if that mod has a compatibility patch for Disposable Rocket Launchers.

Is/will this mod be compatible for lwotc?
