Reloading Mod v.0.2 - Make your own ammo!

 

Now handloading has finally come to Project Zomboid.

 

Since I'm an experienced handloader and this is one of the things I would be doing irl to keep my ammo supplies up if I had zeds walking around.

 

The mod is very realistic regarding ingredients and such. I hope you'll enjoy it!

Recipes

9mm: 10 9mm bullets, 10 9mm brass, 10 small pistol primers, some pistol powder. You also need the reloading manual, 9mm die set and of course the reloading press. This will generate 10 9mm.

 

223: 20 223 bullets, 20 223 brass, 20 small rifle primers, some rifle powder. You also need the reloading manual, 223 die set and of course the reloading press. This will generate 20 223's.

 

308: 20 30cal bullets, 20 308 brass, 20 large rifle primers, a bit more rifle powder than 223. You also need the reloading manual, 308 die set and of course the reloading press. This will generate 20 308's.

 

Shotgun: 240 buckshots, 12 empty shotgun shells, 12 shotgun primers, some pistol powder (yup, in my manual it says that). You also need the reloading manual and the reloading press for shotgun. This will generate 12 shotgun shells.

 

Bullet casting: You need a lead ingot, a cooking pot, bullet mold and a lit candle. Put lead into cooking pot, then use the mold.

 

Bugs

Even if gun is unloaded, it will still generate empty brass. This is due to limitations regarding lua scripting atm. Thanks to Viceroy for this.

I love realism and the "thought" of continiuty, but even reloading supplies will run out. Making smokeless powder is more or less impossible without a big lab and such. Blackpowder is doable, but require some chemicals that also will run out.

 

Update: Now the guns only give brass if you actually have ammo loaded. Replace ReloadingMod folder with this one.

Cool, definitely gonna be using this myself.

 

Pop me a PM whenever you notice a bug and need some help. Always happy to help. :)

 

EDIT: Just tried this Rausheim, love the ambience of seeing a place after a gunfight and having expended shells and brass everywhere.

Really cool mate! It's not a feature I'm keen on seeing in the vanilla game, but as a mod really fantastic and much needed. Hope to see more from you in the future!

 

Why? It's realistic and a lot of people do it in real life

 

People make large hadron colliders in real life, too. Fascetiousness aside, while people certainly do it, it's faaaaairly uncommon (speaking as a gun nut who's lived and grew up entirely with large communities of gun nuts) and the supplies are limited. Between the limited number of skills, the inability of people to "learn from doing", and the limited resources, it's not something that's struck me as a good vanilla feature for a game that aims to represent the "everyman" in the apocalypse. If you'd like me to expand more, feel free to PM me- no sense disrupting this mod thread with the discussion.

 

I definitely think it's fantastic for a mod, though; adds that extra set of features in for the people who like them.
