Full Spread Phasers - File Description  


Description:
This is kind of a neat idea, as seen in the VOY episode "Dragon's Teeth". This weapon allows any selected Federation ships to deliver full spread phasers. Now, I know what you might be saying-- I've seen multi-targeting stuff before. How is this any different? It works as a special weapon to enable all the phasers to separately select targets and go for it.

Now, I would imagine you'd have to have some knowledge of your selected ship's phaser hardpoints otherwise you'll be firing phaser beams out of the engines and torpedo tubes and bridge and.... just out of everywhere. However, people are always looking for ideas for new things that can be done with weapons, and this is one example of how much still remains to be squeezed out of this game.

Worth a look.

cool

just so I understand - if I am outnumbered (as in every of your pics) this weakens the shield of every enemy ship just a little instead of destroying one or two opponents before I go down? hm. that special weapon is a nice idea - but not for solo actions like in the pics posted.

Thanks you guys! I Really appreciate it.

Ameba I sometimes like to play my game with a single ship as my main*****nal(and three back ups)and I value my selected ship(specially if it comes out as the U.S.S. Archangel)and I sometimes find myself in over whelming odds before I know it, as seen in the images I posted, and so staying as canon as I could coinciding with the Star Trek universe I devised a weapon that is not(for lack of a better word)cheating. wink

Multi-targeting weapons are cannon. In season 2 or 3 of TNG, the Enterprise used them. out side of the Voyager also using them, I think a Nehg'Var also used them in DS9. I use Multi-targeting weapons in my game now on multiple ships in most of the stock races. Making it a special weapon though I think will make it work better I'm gonna try it out.

This weapon was intended to reinforce the ships standard phasers, an alternative phaser option should you ever find yourself in similar situations as the images I posted. Now I have from time to time destroyed all sourounding enemies of four to five(or so)using this weapon but in concert with common sense tactics. Pimp!

Now forgive me if all the pictures I posted seem a bit like no win situations but I needed to capture how the weapon would look like during heavy fire. wink

This is a really cool idea! This is a well thought out and highly useful mod which allows a player another tactical option. Thank you for this because I think it is something which is long overdue.

Odd I followed instructions yet I can't get it to appear on one of my ships... I got it set up in tech tree; I equipped it to a ship; I got all the necessary files in their proper places; I got it set up in guiglobal I wonder what is wrong...

Sorry for the doublepost but I figured it out for some reason weapon changes or additions don't affect loads of saved games before the addition
