Giving collision properties to artillery projectiles

Post by Ziko »

I'm currently trying to make a combat-oriented mod, but I've realized that artillery can just vaporize anything I can throw at the player.
I'm looking for ways to nerf it, and one of them is to have a way to block artillery projectiles. Unfortunately, unlike regular projectiles, artillery-projectile must have an empty collision_box and have no hit_collision_mask, which makes them unable to collide with anything.
Is it possible to give them those properties to make them mimic regular projectiles ? While I could also directly turn them into projectiles, they would lose their special behavior like revealing terrain as they travel, and I doubt people will appreciate if I start altering the default behavior of artillery.

Sorry, artillery projectiles are designed to not collide with anything. It sounds to me like that game mechanic you want to implement simply isn't compatible with artillery.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.
