IED Disruptor and Explosions Addon
This addon is in two parts. The first part is used to spawn explosions. Often, to make an explosion, mission makers spawn a ammunition object. An LGB makes a very large explosion and an artillery shell makes a rather smaller one. The problem with this is that the player, if he's looking at it, will see the object spawn before it falls to the ground and explodes.
This addon uses a reconfigured hand grenade to create two explosion types. It's small so players are unlikely to see it spawn and it's fuse time has been removed. The first is a small explosion and is roughly twice the size and power of a game hand grenade and the larger one is a little less powerful than an LGB. This doesn't create an IED object or anything like that. It makes the explosion and it can harm players, vehicles and buildings if they are close. The classnames are SEK_TR_GUE_smallbomb and SEK_TR_GUE_bigbomb.
The other part of the addon is the IED Disruptor. It's based on the Canadian Proparms 29mm Neutrex Waterject IED disruptor. It's actually a remodeled and reconfigured satchel charge and is picked up, placed and detonated in the same way.
It's best used with eventhandlers. If you add a handledamage EH to a nearby object, when the disruptor goes off, that EH will fire and it's select 4 will return TKY_Disruptor_A. This is different to how a satchel works which has unnamed muzzle so select 4, as described above returns an empty string. We named our muzzle and ammunition to get the functionality described above. The classname is TKY_Disruptor.
As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems. For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ
