Speed loader
« on: April 02, 2018, 01:19:12 AM »
Could the speed loader just reduce reload times by 1?
Would that be hard to implement?

I always disliked the new X-Com's method of limited free reloads. They do that because they have a two action system. This game uses action points.
With the speed loader as it is, once you use it, it becomes useless (until the next battle I assume).
Unless the intent is that you equip it, reload and then switch it out for something else?

The speed loader picture there, suggests to me that it increases reload speed. Or rather, reduces the amount of time wasted during reload.
I'd like to put in a suggestion of having it do -1 AP to reload cost.

Hey Nomad. The weapon upgrades reduce the reload time, so wanted to offer something different with the speed loader. It could be most useful for weapons with higher reload costs, perhaps allowing a shot which would not otherwise be taken. Will keep it in mind.

Ahh... I did not realise that weapon upgrades did that. Awesome.

If you (or anyone else) has ideas for Utility items, please let me know! Would hope to have 15+ in the final game.
