Next time upload the map folder, not the files inside it. I will see it when I have time.

You should be able to compress the folder into a zipped folder, and you should be able to upload those.

I'm not sure. Try to change default color in PlayerTemplate.ini. Maybe it will help.

Excuse me, Masters
I have some question.
1-Is it possible in the Generals to do two actions by one command button at same time?
for example run an action or fire a weapon and also upgrade a unit at same time.

2- when I edit the ini files to change the units behavior is there any IF Statement.
for example write something like this IF (GAME_PASSED_TIME < 60_Sec) THEN Upgrade weapon ELSE do nothing.

I hope find my answers soon.
Thanks in advance for your Attention.

Mahdi.

It is not possible for one command button to do separated actions. However, it is possible for one upgrade to have more than one effect. So, you could use upgrade to simulate the one button with two (or more) effects.

There is no IF in behavior. Behavior types are hard-coded into the engine. If you add something it doesn't recognize, your game would crash. However, you could code the IF into multiplayer or skirmish scripts using world builder to do specific actions you want in every game you play. You need to import the scripts and set it accordingly.

So I have a poison field. It's nice and colorful and all that. However I want to add, in addition to the damage it does to vehicles and infantry, a chance that vehicles inside the field's pilots have a chance to be killed. If I can get away from it, I DON'T want it to kill everyone in the field (ie a weapon with the same aoe as the field that fires every so often, and if successful will kill all pilots in the field), nor do I want it to be a weapon centered in the field that would only "shoot" at the first vehicle that came into the field until it can no longer be targeted. I want all vehicles that enter the field to be subject to an independent chance that their pilot will die while in the field.

I believe the main thing I have to do is add the new pilot killing weapon (which I'm not sure how to make it attack all enemy vehicles independently), and add a behavior for the chem fields in the ini where it's stored (can't remember the name but I found it: holds all GLA chemical stuff I believe) that fires the new weapon. Then I'd also need my own chance generator which should be able to work similar to stealth general's snipers for example. But I'm not sure how to actually get that all in, especially the behavior since that has a ModuleTag, and I don't know what to do with those.

I have always wonder how to specify how many garrisoned infantries are killed per weapon.
Like....making flashbang kills one at a time instead of kill all.
And I've seen CWC make it kinda....1 grenade hit has 20% chance of killing 1 guy inside and 1 artillery hit has 50% chance of killing 5 inside.
Does anyone have any idea how to do this?

No problem. If you do not plan to upload it to Internet then you can take everything you want.

It can be made easily by creating random shells. Look how normal Zero Hour creates different GLA Technicals. The same method can be used to create different shells from one cannon. One shell can kill infantry, another can not do it. This is the chance you ask about. I use this technology for toxin weapons already.

It is better to drop this idea. Teleport is glitchy and overpowered.

I've noticed that radiation and posion fields no longer show like they did in the orginal game this presents a problem for infantry is there a fix for this i 008?

Will there be a multiplayer map with a train that moves though the map that can actually run through ve3hicles and stuff like that.

Okay.. Does each general have 1 super unit in your mod?

I'm trying to import a unit from your mod (with your permission)what files do I copy code from? I'm particularly confused about textures and skins. Help would be greatly appreciated.

im just messing around with stuff in the .big file.
i always thought firebases where rather crappy so i went in there and found it in weapons data. and then i seen it had a plus one and a plus two. right under it each with slightly improved attack power. i think. so i thought of it like. first one could spray shells wildly. the second one could spred shells more focused but with less power over a larger area. then the last one the plus two. would be very weak but increaidbly focused and have massive range. but i dont know what the pluses are. ive added people in the squares. ive gave them both armors. set down the mines. but the firebases just stay at the original state of spreading the shells all over.
ive looked it up and i cant find anything talking about the pluses.

plz help
