Does anyone know why weevils shoot just two plasma balls in Obsidian (under rebirth 0.58.1), instead of smart missiles they are supposed to fire?
Is it a bug? I am using obsidian from DMDB. Everything else is ok. Well in fact I did not tried other rebirth versions but in DOS version it is the same.
I tried to view robot stats in Descent level editor but could not find working link to one...

Early versions of the 'bot use plasma, later versions use the missiles.

Do you mean later version of Obsidian, if so where can I get it? Or it will fire missiles in the later levels? I am at level 6, where there is already a plasma driller, so this weevil looks too easy in comparison, so I thought it is a bug.

The later levels will have the smart missile version. I know there is one by level 8. The smart version is probably introduced on level 7.

Yeah that was intentional, the smart missile version is kind of an equivalent to a Boarshead, and level 5 (or was it 4? I don't remember) felt way too early to introduce that.
