lol more info needed. Check the Gorgoth Spire in mordorfortress ini, itl show ya how to fire a weapon from the fort

Behavior = WeaponFireSpecialAbilityUpdate ModuleTag_SpireWeaponFireUpdate   
        SpecialPowerTemplate    = SpecialAbilityGorgorothSpireFireball
        WhichSpecialWeapon        = 2

        UnpackTime              = 3000
        PackTime                = 1500
        
        SpecialWeapon            = MordorGorgorothSpireWeapon
        TriggerSound            = GorgorothSpireFireballLaunchMS    ;this plays when Fireball launches
    End

'whichspecialweapon' just refers to which anim to use when firing, i dont imagine the men fort has any for ivory reveal

 

If you want some sort of charge up fx you can fire it from the user states such as

 

ModelConditionState = UPGRADE_IVORY_TOWER
            Model           = GBFITower
            ParticleSysBone NONE Ivory01 ;;FollowBone:Yes
                ParticleSysBone NONE Ivory02
                    ParticleSysBone NONE Ivory03
                        ParticleSysBone NONE Ivory04
                        ;;ParticleSysBone NONE Ivory05
            
        End

 

 

this is the default ocl that fires the vision reveal

 

Behavior                 = OCLSpecialPower ModuleTag_IvoryTowerVision
        SpecialPowerTemplate = SpecialAbilityMenFortressIvoryTowerVision
        StartsPaused         = Yes
        OCL                  = SpecialPowerIvoryTowerVision
        CreateLocation       = CREATE_AT_LOCATION
    End

 

 

that should point u in the right direction to start off

Thks for your reply but can you be more specific and tell me exactily what to replace with what and if you know how to make the ai use it properly ?

It whould be more simple to add instead of istar light cloud break ?

Well for that you should look at a tutorial (on the3rdage.net) on how to change spellbook powers to powers for heroes or whatever, heroes and buildings are both objects, so both can have the same modules, its just the trick of getting the right stuff in there :p

well then the commandbutton is wrong :p

What does it look like?

Compare it to the ivory tower button, you should see a difference :p (with the exception of triggering a different power)
