[B19] New-Old Weapons of Rimworld
« on: September 14, 2018, 12:53:45 PM »

A simple mod that adds three weapons; the PDW, the Shiv and the Semi-auto Shotgun. All three weapons use ancient, long-forgotten textures of previous versions of Rimworld that were replaced by their newer counterparts.

Shivs are makeshift knives that only stab, having less damage but slightly faster strikes than a knife. A shiv takes half the amount of material than a knife and has no quality, which makes excellent improvised weapons but will perform worse than most alternatives.

PDWs are a middle-of-the-road alternative between a machine pistol and a heavy SMG. It is slightly less accurate, has slightly less range and shoots slightly less often than machine pistols, but uses a five-round burst in fast rate that deals quite some damage. Nevertheless, it is outclassed by the heavy SMG.

Semi-automatic shotguns are middle-of-the-road alternatives between the pump and the chain shotgun. Instead of a three-round burst of the chain shotgun, they shoot twice, but do not have the huge range penalty of the chain shotgun. It's a definite upgrade from the pump shotgun, but still falls behind in firepower from the chain alternative.

The two firearms are unlocked with the Blowback Operation technology.

This mod is meant to be 100% compatible with just about anything, and should be vanilla-friendly.

Is there a steam workshop version?

EDIT: Found it!

Thanks for doing this.

Need someone to help me out with my low-tech/medieval-style mod:

Check out this mod if you miss having shivs, or the Uzi:
