That's really fantastic! 

I had the uncontrollable urge to play "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" a couple times in a row today. I wonder why... Anyway, Hurrah, Hurrah! 

By the way, I misread the title of this thread and spontaneously imagined Stokely Carmichael tapping his microphone at a rally in the 1960's. darn those Freudian slips...

I'll be honest with you, my files are in a 'by any and means necessary' state

including ignoring most of the the simulation tree. I'll brush it up and maybe make a cheat unit of it :P

that way any future mods have some standard rifleman assets to use

Sounds great !

Yes! This is what the game needs more of. How many features does the engine have, yet the game has no entity that utilizes it, I wonder.

Here is where the game could show off its dual attack mode system whenever it gets one. For ranged units such as these, if the target is too close they switch to bayonet melee mode. 

I want this a lot too as well, that is why I keep harassing @bb_ about #2577 and #252 :D

This isn't an engine feature lol, its a hack, a very sloppy workaround that abuses particle emitters and hidden skeletons. Proper support would be nice but this will have to do as a proof of concept. It follows all the 'rules' so it's more or less future proof for modders, which was my biggest concern. Proper single-particle emitters would of course increase performance by negating the need for hidden emitters.

A duration tag could be added to particles. Assuming a lot of these hacks you're talking about are for the gunpowder smoke.
