Hello brother Moreartillery (cool name!)
How do I change artillery scatter distance?
How can I give an explosive weapon like the basilisk different damage values for direct hits and splash damage?
ALL artillery weapons must use a projectile. The projectile is an OTHER rgd, including many stats.
You can see for yourself, through the following example. I will use the most common artillery weapon, the Basilik's Earthshaker cannon. I suppose you are familiar with Attribute Editing
1] See into the weapon's rgd: Data\attrib\weapon\guard_earthshaker_cannon_basilisk.rgd
2] Specifically, see the fired_projectile entry. It's the guard_basilisk_projectile.
3] That projectile is at Data\attrib\ebps\game\projectiles\guard_basilisk_projectile.rgd.
Now, combining the stats of the weapon rgd, with the stats of its projectile rgd, you will bet the desired result. BOTH visual and damaging.
Also note that ONLY WEAPONS WITH PROJECTILES can utilise the impact_ability field of weapons. This is optional of course, in case you want EVEN MORE from your weapon. The ability kicks in, on projectile impact.
What is the difference between min_damage and Min_damage_value?
The damage cause by a weapon ranges from min_damage to max_damage.
BUT this is further lowered by the armour of the target, and by the piercing of the weapon against that specific target.
The min_damage_value, is the minimum damage REGARDLESS how much the damage is lowered by those factors.

How do I change description text/localization?
The weapon's description appears in the ui_info field of the weapon. The screen_name_id is the local weapon's name. And the help_text_list holds all locale lines with the weapon’s description.
If you are NOT interested about locales and you want to use ONLY ONE language to wither your descriptions, instead of locale UCS entries, you can directly enter text entries. NOT recommended, though, because you can easily change your descriptions later by editing the UCS, instead of the RGDs, directly.

Thudo has taken care of that.
