Summary

Experimental recharge mechanism. Introduced energy weapons, which recharge from personal batteries!
Currently includes laser rifle, laser sniper rifle, laser shotgun, laser machine gun, mega laser cannon, chainsaw.

Usage

We have electric-powered laser turrets.
We have electric-powered personal laser defense equipment.
Now we also have electric-powered weapons!

Just craft these electric-powered weapons. No need to craft any ammo. Equip them in any gun slots, "ammo" (called charges in this mod) will be generated automatically!

This mod provides the following weapons:

  • Laser rifle.
  • Laser sniper rifle.
  • Laser shotgun.
  • Laser machine gun.
  • Mega laser cannon.
  • Chainsaw.

Recharging

Note that the charges do not come for free! Each charge costs energy, and energy is taken from personal batteries in the armor grid. You will need at least one personal battery equipped for these weapons to recharge.

Normally, these recharging will take place automatically, whenever guns are (un-)equipped or ammo are drained. But in case charges are not full (e.g., after ran out of battery), you can always do a manual recharge by clicking on the shortcut "Recharge energy weapons".

Energy required for various weapons are different, as shown by "Shot energy" in the weapon info panel.
For example, chainsaw uses only 2 kJ per attack, so can easily powered by a portable solar panel; while heavier guns can take like 5 MJ per shot.
So be sure to equip more personal batteries or bring some backup ammo weapons, if you plan to use them a lot or for sustained combat.

For more details and stats of the weapons, please see the FAQ section.

Uninstallation

This mod do not modify the existing content in the save game. This mod should be safe to be disabled/uninstalled at any time.
