Want armed guards?Here's how!

Postby thekillergreece » Mon Dec 23, 2013 12:15 pm

Armed guards possible will make an appearance in alpha16. But we cant wait...We can do it now!


Go to your PA save files, open text.prison, find the word Guard and then change his equipment! Into gun,shotgun,rifle, tazer or whatever you want! Its fun!

Yep, it may sound tiring to edit files and edit every guard to have weapons but its worth the time and fun!


Off-Topic: I will add that ability on a save file in my mod.

Do the weapons work? If not then it's useless to change it...

Interesting, I hope that if a prisoner manages to kill the armed guard that they don't get their weapon...

Well...Prisoners will STILL get their weapons(Keys and Pistol or whatever weapon you added them)...So, be careful ;)

Guns, shotguns,rifles and tazers work fine in the game. Thought, they need a lot tweaks, especially tazers. They are like melee, meaning, if guard or prisoner has a guard, he needs to be very close to another a.i and seemingly "melee" him, instantly killing him, rather than shooting him...

It does work, I did on a couple of people (just have to try it on a riot) I think you did something wrong, search up 'guard' and if there is several lines, and one containing:

Code: Select all

Equipment            Baton


Edit it to say something like

Code: Select all

Equipment            Rifle


or Gun, Shotgun, and Tazer.

The weapons are OP, but because they're just a melee in alpha 15c, it makes it not as good, even though it's a one hit kill. The developers are either going to balance it :( or change it.

THATS WHY I reduced guns damage. I reduced guns into 5 damage, shotguns into 8, rifle into 10 and tazer into 12. They are too OP, so be careful what are you doing. So sorry about your huge loss.
