Title: [A16] FireDepartment
Post by: lost_RD on December 31, 2016, 09:08:35 PM
Latest update: January 1, 2017 | Download (https://github.com/lost-RD/FireDepartment/releases/latest)

Special thanks to Nattiejim for the firefoam grenades code. I have borrowed it in its entirety and used it as a reference to create the extinguisher and launcher.

Adds 3 items:

* Fire extinguisher - close range, fast, weak
* Firefoam grenades - medium range, slow, moderate strength
* Doomsday firefoam capsule launcher - long range, huge area, strong, single use

All can be crafted at the machining table or bought from exotic traders. Firefoam is a required research to craft them.

Can I... kill... people... with these fire fighting tools? You described them as if they deal damage on impact, which poppers don't. Thanks for more information! Do you have any screenshots?

They use <damageDef>Extinguish</damageDef> which deals damage to fires only. I'm told that they deal damage to personal shields too but I haven't tested that.

I'm working on some short videos for each weapon as we speak  :)

Please add Firefighter clothes to this mod! Ones that protect you from fire damage.

Updated main post with videos of each weapon in action.

This is a decent idea. They could be impervious to fire but provide no armour.

Thank you so much

You're welcome!

Would it be possible to remove the violence work type so I can turn those useless incapable of violence pawns into dedicated firefighters?

I'll look into it. Ideally, using my weapons should come under the firefighting work type. Making this the case would be a lot of work though.

Even if you can't or don't have the time, I still appreciate the mod.

How do you get access to these items?  Is it something I have to research?  Do traders carry them?  Can I manufacture them?  Thanks! :)

Raids have them and you can make them at the machining bench.
