In the early days of space exploration, "Vortex Tactical" began as a humble endeavor, a small group of visionaries operating on the unruly frontiers of the cosmos. They possessed a singular passion: the modification and enhancement of commonplace weaponry. These pioneers carved their niche in the perilous expanse of space, crafting specialized armaments to empower those daring souls on the cutting edge of human exploration.

Over time "Vortex Tactical" grew from a modest collective into a name synonymous with personal defense on the fringes of the known universe. They answered the call of spacefarers facing dangers beyond imagination—be it the relentless onslaught of bandit marauders or the inscrutable threats posed by hostile extraterrestrial beings.

In an era marked by the burgeoning population, driven by the advent of increasingly affordable cloning technology, the very fabric of the cosmos seemed to expand with sentient life. Colonies flourished, and settlements dotted the celestial map. Yet, with this newfound prosperity came an unforeseen challenge—the proliferation of bandit gangs and criminal syndicates. The very pioneers who once sought to tame the cosmos found themselves under siege from ruthless marauders.

"Vortex Tactical" recognized the urgency of the situation. In response to the growing threat, they unleashed a suite of cutting-edge weapons tailored to the unique challenges faced by settlers. These weapons were not mere instruments of defense; they were a symbol of hope, a promise that pioneers would not succumb to the darkness that lurked beyond the stars.

With innovation at their core, "Vortex Tactical" pioneered advancements in weaponry that complemented the evolving landscape of space colonization. Their arsenal became a beacon of security in an uncertain universe, equipping settlers with the means to safeguard their dreams and aspirations.

Today, as you embark on your interstellar journey with Vortex Tactical you carry the legacy of these pioneers. You become part of the continuing story, where technology, exploration, and survival converge in the ever-expanding cosmos.

Thank you for choosing "Vortex Tactical" – your gateway to a more dynamic and exciting space exploration journey.

what mods are used in the trailer for the mod

So, when reloading the basic pistol, it uses up all the ammo instead of just one magazine

Yeah, I see how that could be an issue. I'll be the first in line for that new version once it's ready!

So like if I give them any damage to large grid they trigger the deformation on the blocks really bad. So say I set the base to 0.0000001x damage to large grid it would do full deformation.
I have been meaning to write up a version of this that is not based on the vanilla guns so on that I might as well add in LG damage.

Would it be possible to get a config option to turn large grid damage back on? I would honestly love the increased danger that could bring to AI enabled bots.
Palpatine  [author] Nov 11, 2023 @ 3:35pm 
They are not designed to damage large grid really at all.
This is because with AI enabled you'll have suits fighting in your base and you don't want it getting destroyed by the small arms fire. You can however damage small grid blocks relatively easily with them.
Hope this helps!

So, using these weapons, unless I'm using the 40mm or thermal detonators I cannot damage Interior turrets at all?

Nevermind, I had to reload the save and it fixed itself, somehow, but Using the basic pistol disabled my forward walk until reload, weird
