How about this make a pistol automatic but work it in as so it starts in -1 or single fire mode, the first fire rate upgrade gives you full election 1, 3, -1, this way you have minimized adding stuff to the upgrade files. Would this be possible?
---END QUOTATION---


Yep. Although -1 is automatic fire for automatic weapons, so you'll want it to start in 1, then expand it out to 1,3,-1.

Still have to get a working automatic pistol,then figure out the shell load command in the shotgun file and try and make a new one with automatic settings.

How do I extract WP_SHOTG?
---END QUOTATION---


You can't. Not without hacking the engine. And it only supports single fire for Shotguns. An automatic shotgun engine class was added only in CoP. Changing a shotgun to use WP_AK74 results in it reloading instantly. Hard coded engine behaviour. Works well for a Saiga shotgun though.

Upgrades are hard to figure out. Most of the settings in the upgrade files are not well understood, some parts don't seem to do much, or anything at all, and the co-ordinate system for icon placement isn't that obvious, and getting the icon xml placement files sorted out is a pain. Modifying upgrade configs leads you down a modding path with plently of ACCESS_VIOLATION errors, so unless you happen to know exactly what you've done, you will often have no idea why its crashed. And even if you do know, you can still spend plenty of time struggling to figure out what has gone wrong.

I can tell you how to modify the files, and implement new upgrades, but it will require me to sit down and write a full blown tutorial, so it might take me a while.

There is a timer associated with each body, and a limit. When the timer expires, the body is recollected, or bodies are automatically recollected when the limit is reached, with the older bodies being recollected first. Bit immersion breaking when 10+ bodies disappear into thin air.

Still need to do that tutorial on upgrades for you. RL gets busy at this time of year.

So body count is hard coded and time limits are not?

Take your time I'd like to know how to do it.
