Im trying to give a unit 2 deathweapons each with its own radius.
One releases radiation and the other release fire.

DeathWeapon=FireExplosion
DeathWeapon=RadiationExplosion


The problem is that only one will fire.

I tried this with the warhead but I can't get it to have 2 different radius.

This will not work by this way ...I don't know what can cluster(AirburstWeapon) do via animations that  can hold weapon ? (thanks to ARES, of course..)

rulesmd.ini    like :

[someunit]
DeathWeapon=FireExp

[FireExp]
ROF=15
Damage=as you wish
Range=5
Projectile=InvisibleAll
Speed=100
RevealOnFire=no
Warhead=FireExpWH ; add to [WH]s List
OmniFire=yes
Suicide=yes
Anim=it can be same as WH's animation, maybe... I mean, FireExplAnim


[FireExpWH]
AnimList=FireExplAnim   ;  add to [Animations] List


; you know,the game engine has to recognize every weapon as they belong to at least one unit,so we use Ares'

[WeaponTypes]
+=RadExp
+=FireExp

[RadExp]
Damage=100 ; change the numbers as you wish
ROF=80  ; change the numbers as you wish
Range=4   ; change the numbers as you wish
Speed=10  ; change the numbers as you wish  
AreaFire=yes
Suicide=yes
Projectile=InvisibleLow
Warhead=RadEruptionWarhead  ; make it and add to WHs list
IsRadEruption=yes  ;maybe not necessary
RadLevel=200 ;for example, but a  + number  is necessary

and now, you can try to give your [FireExplAnim] a weapon called "RadExp" in   artmd.ini file... Maybe Damage= and Warhead=RadEruptionWarhead  maybe required under [FireExplAnim]  

in artmd.ini...    

[FireExplAnim]
Layer=Ground
Rate=400 ; good enough
Weapon=RadExp ; we give this name, you remember ?
Warhead=  same in rulesmd.ini
Damage= also, same in rulesmd.ini


Try this way, and if works,  make a return ,ok ?

Why does it have to be two weapons when you can just make the animation look however you like and the warhead to give you the combined verses values? That's not even mentioning you can chain animations with Next= each applying damage?

Sure...I am not good at modding. """Next= """ (in artmd.ini.)
Definetely usable...  Only GOD knows what I miss when modding just because being illiterate, I mean, without enough knowledge

Very Happy

Animation damage for this purpose is primitive given the tools you have with engine extensions. Animation damage has its uses (also with extensions) but this ain't it chief(s).

Use airburst ez:

Code:
[WeaponTypes]
xx=FireExplosion
xx=RadiationExplosion

[RadiationExplosion]
Projectile=AdamPls
Damage=69
Warhead=AdamPlsWH
Range=1.83
ROF=50
Speed=10
RadLevel=100

[AdamPls]
Image=120MM
Vertical=yes
Dropping=yes
Splits=yes
AirburstWeapon=FireExplosion
Cluster=1

[FireExplosion]
Projectile=Invisible
Damage=69
Warhead=AdamPlsWH2
Range=1.83
ROF=100


There, you now have 2 warheads on 1 DeathWeapon that:
- has separate CellSpread
- has separate AnimList

Does Airburst actually get parsed for DeathWeapons? That never worked for me.

DeathWeapon doesn't fire Airburst at all because deathweapon ignores the projectile therefore no airburst can be found. Similar way we can't make animation damage or weapon to have airburst too.

But you can use Phobos with Unit to Anim feature and add unit after the destruction to fire the airburst weapon and kill self in the process.
