Subtype GatlingGun SBC entries bugged

Outdated

Everything in the SBC indicates that the GatlingGun SubtypeId should have a reload:

    <Weapon>
      <Id>
        <TypeId>WeaponDefinition</TypeId>
        <SubtypeId>GatlingGun</SubtypeId>
      </Id>
      <ProjectileAmmoData RateOfFire="700" ShootSoundName="WepShipGatlingShot" ShotsInBurst="180" />
      <ReleaseTimeAfterFire>204</ReleaseTimeAfterFire>
	    <DeviateShotAngle>0.4</DeviateShotAngle>
      <MuzzleFlashLifeSpan>40</MuzzleFlashLifeSpan>
      <NoAmmoSoundName>WepShipGatlingNoAmmo</NoAmmoSoundName>
      <SecondarySoundName>WepShipGatlingRotation</SecondarySoundName>
      <AmmoMagazines>
        <AmmoMagazine Subtype="NATO_25x184mm" />
      </AmmoMagazines>
      <ReloadTime>4000</ReloadTime>
    </Weapon>
Note the "ShotsInBurst" as well as the "ReloadTime", which are defined. That is not the case for weapon SubtypeIds that are not intended to have a reload, such as the LargeInteriorTurret
    <Weapon>
      <Id>
        <TypeId>WeaponDefinition</TypeId>
        <SubtypeId>LargeInteriorTurret</SubtypeId>
      </Id>
      <ProjectileAmmoData RateOfFire="600" ShootSoundName="WepTurretInteriorFire" />
      <DeviateShotAngle>0.3</DeviateShotAngle>
      <MuzzleFlashLifeSpan>30</MuzzleFlashLifeSpan>
      <AmmoMagazines>
        <AmmoMagazine Subtype="NATO_5p56x45mm" />
      </AmmoMagazines>
    </Weapon>
  </Weapons>
Thus, while I can't say whether it was a balance decision or not (that's a separate discussion), if the GatlingGun was supposed to not have a reload, it should not have those variables defined. That it has them defined, indicates an issue because any modded guns using that SubtypeId will also not be able to have a reload as a result - even if it is intended for the GatlingGun.


It also makes it impossible for mods to add a reload to the vanilla small grid gatling gun.

I just noticed this tonight while trying to creating a weapon using the GatlingGun subtype. Thought I was missing something. I attempted to get around this by using a missile launcher model with projectile ammo as ShotsInBurst and ReloadTime work fine with that subtype. Turns out though, you can see the projectile ammo particle trails on a local game but you cannot see them on a dedicated server. Both issues are pretty annoying, please fix.
