More bonuses to rocket launcher research

Post by Ingolifs » Sat Nov 24, 2018 9:30 pm

Just a little one. All rocket shooting speed bonuses should give an additional +1 range to the rocket launcher, and all (finite) rocket damage bonuses should increase the blast radius (say, by 0.5 units per tier) of the explosive rocket.

It's nice to see the rocket launcher being useful against big biters, but I think it's use as a base sniping tool can be improved on.

Sounds like a good idea! I currently have a QoL research mod with lots of helpful things like this, I will bookmark this page and see if I can implement the idea.
"Artillery laser cannon shotgun uranium explosive turret tanks" would be the greatest thing ever.

Here is my mod:

I will look through game files to see if I can implement this. It will come in version 0.4.0, I will let you know if anything changes!

Except for the nuclear rocket, I feel that the rocket's range isn't enough.
I would like to be able to hit worms from long distance with the rocket launcher without them hitting me (after I research a bonus to the weapon's range, of course)
