Description
Commander, I overheard Mox talking to some of our rangers. Apparently they've been using the skirmisher's ripjacks in place of their swords. At first I thought he was upset, but I think he was impressed. I don't think they'll be able to perform the acrobatics the skirmishers do... but a blade is a blade.
- Central

Introduces a cosmetic alternative to the traditional ranger's sword.

Many of the characters available on the workshop are limited in class choice due to potential clipping due of secondary weapons like the ranger's sword. These wrist-mounted blades aim to alleviate that concern while maintaining expected gameplay. Each repurposed ripjack should overlap well with any armor.

Three tiers of wrist-mounted blades are available:

Conventional
  • Available at the start of the game.
  • Has the same damage potential and abilities of the Conventional sword.
Ionic
  • Available at the same time of building the Ionic sword.
  • Has the same damage potential and abilities of the Ionic sword.
Fusion
  • Available at the same time of building the Fusion sword.
  • Has the same damage potential and abilities of the Fusion sword.

To use in TLP's Skirmish mode, subscribe to bg's 'All Equipments in Skirmish' mod
Compatible with Musashi’s Primary Secondaries Mod
Incompatible with Musashi’s Dual Wield Mod - can still be installed at same time though.


Please let me know if you encounter any bugs or discrepancies. I hope you enjoy!

Does this add Justice and Wrath moves by any chance? I've quite a few mods and I noticed some characters get the ability to use them. They aren't shown in skills or list when deciding their gear, yet only found those that are using the ripjack are capable of this ability... aswell as only the vanilla ones who appearantly use them...
So, had to ask XD

no rpg overhaul on my end, I deleted the +20 aim in the config (not sure if this was rly smart, but it's gone for good now).

@prophyz > Are you using RPG overhaul? I'm having this problem myself, and after verfying the cache and deleting the config files and ONLY loading RPGO and its requirements, I still was getting the +20 modifer on blades, which previously also applied to the ones from this mod as well >>> AS far as I can tell the aim bonus is only cosmetic and is not present via an F1 stat check mid-mission. So it does no appear to be this mod causing it.

super strange, sometimes it's +20 aim - sometimes on loading saves it is back to normal.
So yeah the problem is on my end (with around 115 mods running)... mhh

@prophyz: These use the normal stats for the respective rangers' sword as its configurable values. Don't think its this, but let me know?

If I use the ripjack, my soldier gets +20 aim. I have 0 clue what other mod is causing this.
Feels bad.

Ok, thanks for the response NightNinja. I'll send some psionic vibes Mushashi's way.

@GUA: Hey, unfortunately the wristblades do not work in dual weilding mode. Whatever magic Musashi uses in that mod breaks this ripjack model. I've already discussed this with him and cannot fix it on my end.

NightNinja, as Vash and I were discussing, the casing for the wrist blade is too close to the hand, and nees to be shifted back to the forearm if you get the chance to update this. thanks.
