    I just dropped in here to say thank you for making one of these :smile:

    I've been looking for something like this to help me out, specifically to tell me if my weapon creations will work or not. This thing is a lifesaver... I made all sorts of weapons today from a 4,000 damage Rocket Launcher to a 506 x 5 damage Assault Rifle. Awesome work on it man, it's working great.

    I'm glad its helpful. The next *major* addition will, if all goes well, be a weapon card generator that will generate pictures of the guns (minus the different materials). However, don't expect that for a while.

    It's definitely helpful. I'm a new modder on this game, especially when it comes to making weapons (all of mine would disappear <_< ) but this pretty much simplifies everything.

    The program is built around the rules that the game uses to make guns. Nade launchers are a screwy, haphazard gun type that was never really "in" the game but not out of it either. They, and Eridians, dont' always follow the same part-selection rules so I didn't put them in.



    Also, a new build is up. Basically, it's just bug fixes. I'm still working on weapon cards, those will be added in the next major build.

    New build now up. The big change is the addition of elemental impact DPS and a few other derived elemental stats. To enable them, you have to select the "tech calc" check box since it will take a few seconds to calculate. Also, I altered the text coloring convention so it makes intuitive sense.

    Ok, got a new build up. Next major build will have gun deconstruction enabled and Eridians added.

    Weapon card generation is the big thing here; if you notice any alignment problems with the parts in the pics, let me know and I'll fix 'em. Costs are off by a tiny, tiny bit but that's because the game rounds a lot every step of the way. Oh yeah, the original unique guns are all supported now.

    Here are all the changes:

    • Added weapon card generation and ability to save card to local PNG
    • Added gear code import from clipboard
    • Added all unique guns from original game
    • Implemented accurate cost calculation
    • Added procs per second stat, ammo regeneration stat
    • Many, many bug fixes including sniper prefixes, shotgun titles, and others

    Need to allow ability to set spaces as None for things like making 6 clip sledges shotgun
    Need to make it so Itemgrade and Weapon type are not linked because they aren't that way you can use different manufactures for guns

    Well, those are "hacks" of the game system, not the way they were designed. It's meant to reflect what the gun generation system in the game was meant to be with some leniency--I let you create Shredder Shredders but I see no point in going any further for the purposes of this program.

    but it would be pretty damned cool to have a "modded gear calc"...
