Avali - Compound Tech Bow
[NEW: 09/13/15]: My mod has now been merged into the fan update "Avali (Triage)". You no longer need this mod installed as an addon if you are using the most up to date version. The "maintainers" of said mod have mentioned that also plan to rebalance the bows (something I couldn't really decide on), so that's good too!
[URGENT - READ NOW]: This mod has been updated to Upbeat Giraffe, but requires the fan update found here.
[ATTENTION]: This mod requires the Avali Race mod by RyuujinZERO, which can be found here.
[NOTE]: If you are having issues with downloading the mod, I have posted a mirror here.
NOTE: The muzzle flash seen on the second to last shot does appear on every shot. Apparently I didn't set the the .gif recorder I used to a high enough FPS to catch it every time! :]

In the strictest sense, this is not technically canon. The Avali never really used bows as a primitive species (their prey was all much bigger than them, and their home planet had low gravity, so they really only used spears), so they probably wouldn't make high tech ones. The rather flimsy excuse I'm going with is:
If this doesn't suit you, then no one is forcing you to download it. I made it because I like high-tech bows (and archery in general), and was annoyed that there were both no good vanilla end-game bows, or an Avali-themed bow!
How to Get:
You can craft the bows at the Avali Weapon Workbench:
-5 Iron Bars
-5 Steel Bars
-1 Avali Data Chit
-1 Circuit Board
-10 Durasteel Bars
-1 Avali Data Chit
-1 Circuit Board
-10 Impervium Compounds
And the Weapon Rack versions at the Avali Nanolathe:
Weapon Rack - CB1 Lancer:
-1 CB1 Lancer
Weapon Rack - CB2 Lancer:
-1 CB2 Lancer
Weapon Rack - CB3 Lancer:
-1 CB3 Lancer
Weapon Rack - CB4 Lancer:
-1 CB4 Lancer
These recipes are subject to possible changes in the future!
Q: Will you be adding more kinds of bows?
A: I doubt it. It takes a considerable amount of time and effort to make an animated sprite like this.
Q: Will you be adding subtle visual changes between the tiers, like the default Avali weapons?
A: I really don't think so. For one, it takes even more time to do this for an animated sprite, but also the main Avali mod doesn't do this for its guns or throwing weapons, only the melee weapons.
Q: Will you be adding more kinds of projectiles?
A: Its possible, but probably not in the immediate future. I'm pretty busy a lot of the time now.
Q: Why did you make 4 different kinds of weapon racks when they're all essentially the same?
A: Because the game tends to not like it when they're more than one way to craft a single item. This is probably why the main Avali mod only lets you use tier 1 weapons for the racks.
Q: The bows are a bit unbalanced, will you fix this?
A: I was unsure exactly how to best balance the bows when I made them. If you have a suggestion on a more optimal power for the bow or the projectile, I'd love to hear it, but the way bows scale damage is even more unclear than with normal guns, especially after the Upbeat Giraffe update...
Q: Can I use this mod in my mod pack?
A: Please ask me first. I spent a while on this, so I'd appreciate it if you'd do me the kindness of asking my permission. I'm like, 99.999998% sure to say yes! :]
Q: Did you use almost every preset color in making this description?
Not much beyond bug fixes and version updates.
