i wanted to create new weapon for cosmoteer that feels different in their use and different from what other modders have created. No bigger numbers here but some alternative balanced (i try to) weapons that add some diversity to the vanilla weapons.
Discord for Akinata Weapons Variants!
For the people who follow my work or want to discuss about issues/balancing , new content or create ships/make suggestions about this mod easily.
(Both weapon variant and stargate mod are needed for everything to work properly.)
(beta version are only available on the discord)
version 0.0.7 (outdated but should still work)
====>READ THIS !!!!====>HOW TO INSTALL====>
Don't use the ingame tool to intall my mods because there is 2 mods in that download becasue the stargate mod and the weapon variants mod are separated.
extract the content of this compressed file into:

I will share here what i have done so far:
Perforator : (AP rounds)
Howitzer : (HE rounds)
Burster : (chaotic burst of laser projectiles)
drill missile launcher : (penetrate and burn)
S.E.M.P.D. (supressive energy mass point defence) : (anti-missile energy wall)
Unstable drill missile launcher : (penetrate and detonate)
Ammo eater : (corrode enemy shells, missile parts and railgun ammo)
thunder ray : (drain power with precision)
turret missile launcher : (a missile in a turret)
scatterer : (space shotgun)
laser gatling : (rapid fire laser cannon)
suicide bomb and detach bomb (usefull for kamikase or carriers)
The suicide one will explode upon contact with an ennemy. large aoe, large damage and friendly damage.
The detach bomb is a little component that will detonate himself, destroying only structure around him, to separate 2 or more ships that were linked by some structures parts.
Fun fact: the detach bomb can be used in number behind a ship to propulse it for the suicide bomb ship to get closer to its target.
tractor beam : (don't let anyone escape)
Attract your enemy with the power of love.
explosive saw blades thrower : (penetrating saw blades with double detonation)
overcharged battery launcher(throw emp explosive battery) with its overcharged battery factory :
a canon that will launch overcharged battery cell which explode on impact, sucking power in a little aoe.
overcharged missile launcher : (emp missile that can damage the shield generator upon hitting its shield)
test gun : (it's like a box of chocolate, you'll never know what's inside. it is obviously not balanced)
Stupid gun i use for testing purpose. It is at the moment a ... SURPRISE!
This time there is 2 test guns !! double the fun.
STARGATE THEMED WEAPONS!
I decided to work on some weapons from the stargate universe.
goa'uld staff cannon : (death glider weapon)
goa'uld twin staff cannon : (al'kesh weapon)

tau'ri railgun turret : (Railgun turret used by the Tau'ri ships)
Some Decals :
upcoming features :
_Multi-missile suicide bomb(done)
_high range tractor beam(done)
it was requested by someone who wanted a sort of anti missile kitter. it will be the same price as the tractor beam but will have 40% less tractor power and 40% more range. (max range 200, the same as missile launchers)
_4ball Heavy cannon(done)
A recycled verion of the actuall test gun 2. Since the mine launcher will have a complete revamp i thought it would be a waste to scrap this one so i reworked it a ltitle and created a 4 shells burster.
If the tip of the cannon remin you of a flame thrower then you would expect some kind of fire damage right?
this weapon have 25% to 40% chance to cause a fire on each hit.
It is not yet possible to have AOE effect on anti missile type of projectiles. So it will be able to hit only one missile per projecile.
_tau'ri f-302 missile launcher(done)
Self factory, the weapon will fire missiles from under the ship no matter where it is placed but it will have a narrow range.
_tau'ri railgun turret VARIANT (done)
A variant of the tau'ri railgun turret which can fire threw ships.
Lore wise this gun was not used on ships but to defend tau'ri ground bases. also it did not have a rouded shape like this but it is more practical this way for space battles.
_TWAC (twin wedged auto cannon) (done)
it's the weapon designed by the winner of the last tournament.
_new editor group : "AkinataBIG"
no more variants of vanilla weapons here but BIG weapons.
=> repeater Giant heavy cannon gatling. (wip)
=> Light cram cannon big 3 barrel cannon turret like those on ww2 battleships. (done)
=> ARC cannon anti shield sniper.(done)
_pulsator (done) a pulse beam weapon that fire 4 short bursts of green beam laser.
_mine launcher (wip)
_melee weapons (MEGA DRILL)(wip)
_TNL (Txxxxxxx Nxxx Lxxxxxxx) (wip)
_Multiplayer ships for competitive plays (wip)
_alkesh naquadah bombs
_extra dimensionnal energy missile(delayed) (it is the actual test gun 1 but it is unfinished and buggy)
_long range torpedo (planned for a futur version of this mod)
_regenerative wraith living armor (planned for a futur version of this mod)
Medieval themed weapons : (planned for when i hit the version 1.0 of the stargate mod)
twin staff cannon will have a nerf in AOE damage and range and a up in direct damage.
arc cannon will damage shields like intended.
_waiting for feedback
Feel free to give me feedbacks on those weapons as i try to make them as balanced as possible against vanilla weapons.
