Hello fellow modders, I know one of the annoying limits in Sins is that we can't create our own weapon types. Yet while I was experimenting with changing the underused Vasari pulse beam into an Ion Cannon, I came across a discovery in the string file that caught my attention. In particular in the section that defines the InfoCard names for weapon types.
Surprisingly I discovered that there was already an Ion type weapon in the string file, even though I wasn't aware of any Vanilla Ion type weapons. Even more surprising, when I actually put "ION" as a weapon type in game, it worked.
So, is this really an unused weapon type, available for any modder to adapt for their own purposes? Or is it actually used in some obscure place that I forgot about?
