    All you are hearing seems to be "removal of gun parts". Well think of it this way, each of those parts were basically a limited version of what mods are. The new mod system even uses the old assembly screen.

    Only one actual item ID in the xml has to be used for all item mods. The mods are stored in another xml file and have an upper limit of 32,000(ish) possible mods. In the old gun system a pistol could only have a single item assigned as it's "barrel"

    Now, using tagging and mods, a pistol COULD have 50 different types of barrels. All that do various things aside from editing the same set of stats. One could add damage and take away magazine size; One could have less damage but give you 1hp per shot when you hit an entity; One could give you any level in any skill for a specified time after a kill. 3 off the top of my head that are possible in the new mod system, and that's just scratching the surface..

    The limited nature of gun "parts" evolved into a mod system that can now work on any item in the game, not just tools and weapons. The new system can mimic the old system exactly if that is the desire, but, it can also do much much more.
    Agreed. Gun parts were/are limiting af. I would always have a chest or gun safe with one or two spare guns of each type of the highest quality I could find or make, and never use them. Now it sounds like I can have the storage full of a variety of guns with different mods for different situations. This sounds 10000% better. Not to mention it sounds like the mod community can be more creative with this system.

    So are you saying that clothing and armor could be modded, say with a flashlight? That would be awesome since the mining helmet has become a must have item to wear. Could this be the foundation for wearable backpacks that have more or less inventory slots?

    Use melee damage mods and you can be Hatchet Man.

    Nice!
    I wondered if this system extended to melee weapons. Looking forward to melee weapons that feel and play very differently from each other. This has been my personal 'highly expected' feature.

    Thanks for some precious loot.

    I'm sure, no one would mind if you felt an urge to start doing podcasts every other week or so, talking about cool stuff that's brewing in TFP's base. (similar to Madmole's videos)

    Is the rag doll effect tied to this new mod system? If so, fun times ahead...

    So, If I getting this right and I really want to go off the wall. I could make a "Medic Gun" that'll heal another player instead of doing damage xD .. maybe?!

    It sure looks that way!

    Hey Gazz, TFP could hold a community event for xml tweaks to balance and enrich the gameplay during A17 experimental. You could implement all ideas you like to the stable version!

    EDIT:
    It turns out, the enemy health bar might be exactly the kind of tool one needs for experimenting on the new item buff system.

    Hi, i Just wanted to ask: would the mods be visibile and different each other in the weapons or they would only be numerically present?

    Yes, there is an event action that can be called from any buff, item, or entity that can make an entity ragdoll at will.


    Absolutely.
    Yus! Even more Fun Times are ahead

    Ok thanks, and with this mods system we would have a way to put different Camo paints on weapons?

    So a sledgehammer that spawns grenades upon impact would be doable? :-)
