VortiK's Armor Plating

Sad to see vehicles not scaling well ? Having cars insta killed by spitters and worms ? No more ! Upgrade your car and tank with armor plating equipement that doesn't require energy to increase their max HP and improve their survivability.

Features

New armor plating equipment with its own tech and armor plates intermediate that can be placed in car and tank. Add an equipment grid for the car and the tank if they don't have one yet so they can fit respectively 2 and 3 armor plating equipments.

  • Armor plating equipement adds a flat 1 000 HP on equiped vehicles.
  • Energized armor plating equipment adds 30 % more HP on equiped vehicles.

Mod support

table.insert(data.raw["equipment-grid"][entity.equipment_grid].equipment_categories, "vtk-armor-plating")

Be aware that a big equipment grid will be very overpowered with armor plating stacking.

Todo

  • Done. Display bonus somehow to the player (probably on equip/build, ideally on a gui somewhere).
  • Done. Add mod settings.
