Simple tweaks for OGSE 0.6.9.3
Copy the gamedata folder in each of the optional folders to your OGSE install directory. The folder name should be self explanatory.
This is updated to OGSE version 2.10R fix 2.
Larger first weapon slot
Allows all shotguns, pistol, SMGs, and the flamethrower to be equipped in the first weapon slot. Also bumps the number of belt slots to 14 (from 10). Edit gamedata/config/tuning/ogse_config.ltx and change max_belt from 10 to 14 to use these additional slots in your game. This tweak is taken from a mod posted at Forum.ogse.ru and all credit goes to the author(s) of that mod - all that's been done here is to extract just this functionality.
ZRP's named saves feature from the main menu:
- S creates a new save with a name based on level name and in game time.
- F5 updates a snapshot save per level. A quicksave file per level in other words.
Both of these keys will drop you back in the game immediately. So ESC S will take you the menu, create a new save with a unique name and immediately put you back in the game. This is much safer than using the game's default quicksave since there is only one quicksave and you may save at an awkward time. It's also much easier than creating named saves since you don't need to come up with a name each time.
This pack also includes an extension to the ZRP code where only a fixed number of ESC S saves are kept. The default is to keep the 20 most recent saves.
So if you switch to using ESC S as your primary save key, the 20 most recent saves will always be available to you.
To tweak the number of saves retained, edit gamedata/scripts/save_manager.script and tweak this value to your satisfaction:
-- only retain this many level saves; 0 disables save pruning
local saves_to_retain = 20
Main menu press L to load last save
Includes the ZRP improvement of not putting up the annoying "Are you sure?" window on Load Last Save if you happen to be dead. So if you die, press ESC to get to main menu and then L to load your last save quickly.
Reduced Armor Degradation
Drops armor degradation rates back to AMK/vanilla levels. OGSE has 2x - 4x the rates by default.
Uses effectors.ltx to reduce headbob so that cam_inert isn't changed. This is the more direct method of reducing the effect. If you wish to further drop it, edit config/misc/effectors.ltx.
