Title: Flavour text for assemblies
Post by: Potman on April 12, 2011, 14:28
What do you mean chainsword is "not what you'd really like to use"? Yeah these things need to go.

The flavor text for assemblies is identical to the flavor text of the original weapon. At least, that's how they work now: if Kornel CAN change them (based on the constraints of assembly implementation) then yes, I would gladly have them changed up. (This would be a good place to put suggestions, in fact.) If, on the other hand, that's not something that can be changed as of now, I don't think we'll see it until DRL2-ish.

Although I totally agree with you that chainswords aren't in the "not what I'd really like to use" category.

Given the High Power (and other similarly compatible-with-everything) assemblies, this may be trickier than we think.

That said, suggestions!

Elephant Gun: "There's no elephants where you're going, but this should work just as well."

Nanofiber Armor: "Heavy, stiff, and practically indestructible, this armor isn't going anywhere." <- Added bonus: should work no matter what you put it on.

Speedloader Pistol: "Now you can concentrate on more important things. Like shooting."
Gatling Gun: "The genuine classic."
Tactical Armor: "Straight from R&D, it's almost as if you weren't wearing a thing."
Tactical Boots: "So much easier to run these stone passages with some comfy footwear!"
High Power Weapon: "Quality over Quantity!"

Double Chainsaw: "Two blades is always better than one."
Storm Bolter Pistol: "The standard arms for the true Terminator."
Assault Cannon: "It costs 400,000 dollars to fire this weapon for 12 seconds."
Gravity Boots: "Woah, where did the ground go?!"
Plasmatic Sharpnel: "Ballistic ammo is so last century."

Biggest Fucking Gun: "When you absolutely, positively, need to clear out everything around hundred miles."

I agree with this request.  And while it's not something you can do right now, if I'm correct, KK will eventually move the flavour text from the engine over to Lua, making custom assembly text both easy and base item specific.
