OK, I'm making a few things...for an upcoming...mod.

I need to know how to make a tank gun laser that LAST for about 1 second pershot. This is so it looks like a REAL laser, OR if it's possible to make ONE tank have about 160+ ammo so I can make a laser using the "True Laser" tecnique.

Well, regarding the laser, you can make the visual effect last for any length of time, but you can't force it to always stay attached to the turret. So if you've got a laser effect that stays for 2 seconds, and you turn the turret, the laser effect is staying where it is for the whole 2 seconds.

As for ammo, you can set the tank's max ammo using the AmmoMax parameter (AmmoMax = x) in the racetank file.

Unfortunately, it'll still only start with 8 shots, because the amount of starting ammo is global, as defined in sabot.ent.
