I'm sure a coding expert could figure this out in a few minutes: I need a Skaarj Trooper that can fire projectiles rather than hold a weapon, and also a weapon they do not drop when killed. I will create the projectile myself, but I just need to know how to replace the trooper weapon. 8)

That seems to work great so far! Is it also possible to disable the Shield on the trooper? I realized the shield does not make any sense for an Undead Skaarj. :P

I remember those Undead Skaarj now. They felt out of place and were hard to fight without taking damage from those DP bolts. It's still funny.

Haha, yeah - I am keeping those undead Skaarj, but with MAJOR revisions. They are now even explained in the story as sort of "diseased" Skaarj who survived a plague but look really messed up. Thanks to AlCapowned, there is no more DP. I will come up with something else creative instead. I will likely also give them new sounds (maybe something like a creepy gurgling).

Since I can't hold back everything I do any longer, here is a teaser... This is the new Undead Skaarj (one of two skins for them; the other skin has no armor):

Good Lord, It looks great, even when considering it's still a WIP.

Ugh, that rib cage. You got the diseased look down perfectly.

Shield use should be disabled now.

You mean the alignment? I fixed that already. Or do you mean the rib cage doesn't fit?

I just meant that it looks gross (appropriately so).

Also, is that red part on its head an exposed brain?

Haha, oh. Yeah, the rib cage and spine turned out pretty gnarly. I actually drew it manually using the airbrush in photoshop. It was a simple matter of drawing a bunch of lines, adding shadows/highlights, and texturizing. It was easier than expected to do!

Also, is that red part on its head an exposed brain?


I actually did not intend for it to be a brain, but I also noticed that and decided to leave it up to the imagination of the player. Basically, the Skaarj is just a diseased mess. :lol:

The Skaarj Trooper still uses the shield sometimes, so there must be an instance of the shield still enabled in the code somewhere. It doesn't seem to happen as often as before, but it happens during a fight (I was using the Eightball gun and the Trooper used the shield in this case).
