[WOTC] [WSR] Laser and Coil Arsenal Templates

Description
Creates ghost templates of LW2 Laser and Coil weaponry to be used by WSR.
No research to waste Tygan's time, no schematics to suck your resources, no items to clutter the inventory.
(You wouldn't want them anyway, since i think i accidentally butchered the stats, leaving only cosmetic functions intact)

====================
FEATURES
====================
  • Includes all the weapons and their relevant attachments.
  • SMGs also included. I made the game think they're just rifles.


I was mid-campaign, using other mods with WSR, when Tygan approached me saying that he just wanted to think REALLY hard about laser weapons and how sexy they are for 9 days.
He also couldnt think of Plasma Weapons until he got it over with.
So i nuked my campaign and made this mod.
Sorry Tygan, i know you really like those laser weapons (and i completely understand), but your time is way too important for this.


====================
IMPORTANT!
====================
This mod does NOTHING on its own!
You have to use Iridar's ingenious Weapon Skin Replacer in order to apply these to your weapons.

Weapon template names are provided in mod's ReadMe file.
Example of WSR code is provided in a relevant discussion thread.

No issues found so far and hopefully it will stay that way.

====================
SPECIAL THANKS
====================
  • Praise Iridar for making WSR and giant thanks to Pavonis Interactive for making Laser and Coil weaponry for their Long War 2 expansion.
  • Also thanks to the people who originally ported these weapons to vanilla and then those who ported those into WOTC.
  • Also thanks to all the people who provided me with knowledge of how weapon templates work.


COMPATIBILITY
Might have conflicts with any other mods that attempt to add LW Laser / Coil weapons.
Key word: might.

PINNED: Copypaste code for those new to WSR (and just to save time, maybe)

hopefully for only contain coil standalone version,
because just for faster loading+less lag even with SSD.
guessing can 600mb reduce to 300mb

im sure almost people use only coil replace plasma but not using laser skin

No idea since i have no idea what LWOTC does. If it has laser and coils in it already - then probably not. This is a purely cosmetic mod for vanilla game and it might easily conflict with any mod that attempts to add the same categories of weapons.

Do I need this if I installled LWOTC?

I'm still trying to learn (desperately) WSR so that I don't have to bug everyone with this stuff, but I figured, since it's in your pack you'd want to check it out for the sake of consistency.

The problem is i never used modded upgradable pistols, so the need for their attachments never crossed my mind.
Checking the text files i cant find any refferences to their achievements, but that doesn't say much - i could easily overlook something.

I thought the Pavonis Interactive models had everything?

I... Actually don't remember. Most likely not.

Are there no pistol attachments?

SMGs also included. I made the game think they're just rifles.
/// that mean don't need download SMG mod?

sadly this mod not Separate Laser and Coil. when people(actually me lul) use this mod with coil-plasma replacer, there unusing laser data consuming loading speed

That's because they're not meant to be in this mod. This mod creates ghost templates of weapons, that are completely ignored by the main game - you can't research, purchase or find them anywhere. They exist solely to be butchered by Iridar's Weapon Skin Replacer.

In other words: this mod is a weapon skin mod with extra steps.
