Needful things part 2


#41

For real clips, I added clips and speedloaders a week or two ago.


#42

Yes I was wondering if I was going to have to fenangle something with a combined internal and removable magazine. With that said another question is it still not possible to load single rounds into guns that you do not have a magazine for?


#43

That would be lovely, if only it were so. :sob:


#44

While I very much appreciate the addition of the speed loader I was surprised that the mosin nagants or the sks didn’t get stripper clips (Those are the only rifles in the vanilla game that I know off the top of my head take those). Welp time to mess with the Jsons.


#45

Didn’t M1903 and the Mosin get stripper clips in the latest exp build?


#46

If they did they are not called stripper clips. Or they are in one of the mods all I know is with only the vanilla game the only thing I found was a speed loader for the s&w 619.


#47

That’s weird. Have you updated your game? Update #7307 added them. With a quick glance, the stripper clips seem to be named 3006_clip and 762R_clip in the code. Here’s the link to the log for proof. http://gorgon.narc.ro:8080/job/Cataclysm-Matrix/7307/changes

not getting frostnip with lots of warm clothes thrown on on day 1 due to a bug that’s easily fixed and has been here for many days now


#49

That would explain why the version I downloaded to check that feature was 7306.

I’m not sure if anyone has suggested this yet but wouldn’t it be great to have multi-calibre magazines?

The one above works only with the AR-15 platform but I imagine that by 2045 there might be quite a few ‘former’ preppers who may have stockpiled some of these for different gun platforms.

Also why is it that most soldier zombies have absolutely no spare magazines to speak of? It’s not military procedure to just dump your magazines on the ground even in a firefight.

Higher capacity magazines. STANAG Magazines that have capacities as high as 90 or 100 exist.

…I’ve brought this up before, and I think it’s been long enough that I can bring it up again…


#54

I think the modern weapons mod has them but I think the highest capacity vanilla mag is is 50.

Floran likess bacon meatsss. Floran want bacon makersss. Bacon generatorsss maybe? Floran not undersssstand how generator worksssss, but floran like generator. Floran alsssso like to stab thingssss, more stabby thingsss should be added. Never too much thingsss to sstab.

  1. This was not off topic, as I would indeed like a magical device that generates infinite bacon.
  2. Just so you know, this was not of topic.
  3. I’d also like an immense amount of stabby weaponry, unless I have missed a bunch of it in the crafting menu I haven’t seen a whole. I said that earlier, thus this was not off topic.
  4. If you really insist it was off topic, then I guess so and remove. That would be inaccurate, but I’m not going to try and help you ‘see the light’ since that would be off topic.

Thanks for reminding me that the SKS uses a speedloader @DeWolf

This clip for the SKS should be added to the game:

  {
    "id": "762_m43_clip",
    "type": "MAGAZINE",
    "name": "rifle clip - 7.62x39mm",
    "//": "Provisional.",
    "description": "A small crimped and folded piece of sheet metal designed to quickly load the internal magazine of a rifle.",
    "weight": 60,
    "volume": "100ml",
    "price": 1000,
    "material": "steel",
    "symbol": "#",
    "color": "light_gray",
    "ammo_type": "762",
    "capacity": 10,
    "flags": [ "SPEEDLOADER" ]
  }

It can be added to the SKS by adding the following entry to the SKS’s entry:

"magazines": [ [ "762", [ "762_m43_clip" ] ] ]
