Anyway :
*Is there a good way to prevent ammo from stacking (they are the same class, but have different effects, eg. AP, HE, HEAT, sabot, ...), or alternatively make a weapon able to use multiple ammo classes?
Right now, if I would have sabot ammo, and pick up AP, the AP would become sabot.
I *think* ammo won't stack if it has different special effects, like added fire damage, magic damage etc.. So you could perhaps assign some bogus special abilities to the ammo that you do not want to stack. You should be able to fire the different Versions with the same weapon.

those are the ones that spring to mind right now. Thanks.
I don't know, haven't tried to mod that part yet.

almost thought this forum was completely dead
anyway : they already have different effects (well, all 'magic damage' with different values, but IC has 'fire damage' and 'make monsters flee' (wonder if this works when it's actually ammo )) and it still stacks... Tried alot of other things too, like unique item true, give it different base gold values, ...
But it seems it only looks at the ammo class
tried to make it as an 'item modifier', but does that also apply to items dropped by monsters? And can I somewhere alter the chance of finding modified items?

about the range : I wonder if the game actually uses it yet, I managed to hit monsters a few screens away, while the range should be '8'...

It only took me a day to reply .

anyhow here's a quote from the patch history for DO:

1.01 Changed - Removed all magical effects from ammo types so that they can be stacked on each other regardless of class.

I thought that would mean that ammo types with magical effects wouldn't stack... guess I was wrong.

Hmm, perhaps I should reinstall DO and see how the ammo looked before the patch...

edit : well, when I copy the ammo from DO1.0 to the new Version, it no longer stacks, so I guess I'll get back to using v1.0 .

edit2 : strange, this edit is all wrong, I meant I copied the ammo classes I created to DO1.0, and it worked fine there.
