You seem to be using a wiki for a codebase other than TG, goon perhaps? Don't do that, you'll just get confused.Okay how the hell do I make a conventional chemical bomb?
- The 'pipe frame' the wiki suggests for making pipebombs doesn't seem to exist on our codebase
- A beaker of gunpowder in a grenade casing does nothing
- A beaker of gunpowder preheated to just under ignition does nothing
- A beaker of gunpowder and a second beaker of pyrophoric (Ch3F) makes a weak Ch3F firebomb and the gunpowder doesn't react
- Attaching an igniter to the grenade changes nothing
- Making an ignition-timer assembly set to 1 second repeating will not attach to the grenade or to a beaker
- Gunpowder preheated to just under ignition and a second beaker of superheated chemicals does cause a red 'the gunpowder sparks' message but then does nothing
- The constituent chemicals of gunpowder split into two beakers and heated above the ignition point causes a red 'the gunpowder sparks' message but then does nothing
- Hitting a preheated beaker of gunpowder with the igniter turns me into a red mist of giblets still in the lab
All the guides are focused around making those thermobaric oxygen-plasma bombs in toxins. How on earth do I make a conventional bomb out of gunpowder, nitro, RDX or TaTP?
Grenades function more or less by mixing the two beakers and then removing themselves from the game shortly afterwards. Gunpowder is meant to be heated in a beaker, dropped, and then ran away from AFAIK. For a simple grenade bomb, the meta chem is meth.
That's not how stabilizing agent works on the tg codebase. Once the explosives are stablized you can just remove it with a chemmaster.The only other things I can think of to try later are adding a water-potassium reaction to try and detonate the payload, or adding a smoking agent alongside Ch3F or superheated inert chems to keep the gunpowder 'in game' long enough to pass ignition temp. Another alternative might be to make, say, RDX and then leach the stabilizing agent away in a reaction but the only suitable reaction for that requires a temperature of >200k.
Overall I'm starting to think the code is fucked, because even if I'm doing it wrong it shouldn't be this complicated.
