- Basic tutorial
- Loading and unloading ammo rounds now requires time
- Now, the character doesn't initially know the number of cartridges in the magazine. Check the magazine to see the ammo remaining. Check precision depends on the Mag Drills skill
A full description of the expected behavior:
Time-consuming loading/unloading of ammo
- Loading/unloading of ammo into the magazine now does not happen instantly. Time required to load/unload one cartridge may vary depending on the magazine and the level of new skill, Mag drills.
- Time is spent on loading and unloading ammo in the raid only, in the menu the procedures stay the same as now.
- Loading and unloading can only be done with inventory open. If you close it or switch tabs, loading or unloading is interrupted. The cartridges that were already loaded into the mag, stay in it (and vice versa in case of unloading).
- Only one magazine can be loaded or unloaded simultaneously.
- The Info window displays the loading/unloading and mag check speed bonus if it is not 0.
- If you've started loading an empty mag, or unloading a full one, the precise number of rounds is displayed.
Note: checking mags, hidden precise number of cartridges in the magazine.
- By default, it is unknown how many cartridges are there in the mag, it is not examined (hereinafter referred to as "Unknown/Checked"). Mag counter displays unknown number of cartridges (?/30)
- Check accuracy is determined by new Mag Drills Skill.
- Magazine can be checked either by animation - Alt+T or through interface by Right-clicking and selecting Check magazine.
- If you checked the number on the 0 skill level, then it returns "~empty" - "<1/2" - "~1/2" - ">1/2" - "~full"; on skill level 1 an approximate, on level 2 - the precise amount of ammo
- Full and empty mags are considered to be checked
- All the magazines you take into the raid are checked automatically.
- Loading/unloading a checked mag doesn't change the state, it remains checked.
- After firing the number of cartridges in the magazine becomes unknown.
- Ammo check precision now depends on the Mag Drills sill, not on Weapon Mastering
- Outside of the raid, the number of cartridges is always displayed precisely
- If you have dropped a checked mag and picked it back up, it remains checked. If someone picked it up and dropped again, it becomes unknown to you
Note: checking the chamber.
- The chamber also requires check, only by animation, Shift + T
- If you load the cartridge into unknown chamber, it automatically becomes checked
- If the shot was fired from a checked mag (first shot), the chamber remains checked. Otherwise it becomes unknown as well.
