Set preferred secondary weapons
This sexpression is used to inform the AI about preferred secondary weapons to fire during combat.

(Preferred over other secondary weapons)
Takes 4 argument...
1:	Team name which will prefer firing given weapon
2:	Maximum number of this type of weapon above team can fire.
3:	Weapon name (list includes only the valid weapons for this expression
4:	Ship name at which the above named team should fire the above named weapon

Comments

  • Good-secondary-time forces the AI to use a specific secondary weapon (chosen from a limited list) against a specific ship when attacking that target.
  • Only secondary weapons that are marked as "Huge" in the weapon.tbl (or .tbm) will be listed.
  • The second parameter does not actually have an effect
  • Once this sexp has been called, it will remain in effect until the mission ends (or the target is destroyed, at which point it will become irrelevant)
