Its basically pretty easy to make a new gui... you can recolour an existing one to fit your mod... i would do it for you (would take about a week max) but ... sorry ... im in the middle of a cambridge and i get about 5 minutes in 3 hours to sit infront of my Core2Duo...

Then Again...If you still need a gui by 15 November... i'll be more than happy to help you out... just give me a PM or email me...

BTW... io hav a little question for you... in your Avatar.. is that IronHide from Transformers The Movie?....

Since Migeater released propeller versions of the cargo planes etc anyone know how I can change the voxels for the player say if your playing soviet you get soviet coloured planes or allied coloured if your allied player

So far my tank drops the only one with a different cargo plane since it was a custom SW

I don't know if its possible for different paradrop planes according to sides if they are the same SW...

like the seigechopper

Think they're the key words there... Try looking at the seigechopper code

HOLAS: ™

i didnt understand (damn english lack >_<) so i'm going to assume you are talking about the props or the landing

1) for the props

if the helicopter has a turret... try turretspins=yes

if not... i just copy-pasta some siege chopper tags that aren't in my copter and it works O_o


2) for the landing

ballonhover=yes ?


EDIT: notice i maybe misspelled the tags... but i think you are going to get the idea

I've come up with a brilliant idea which could work depending if the airstrike weapon Boris uses can be duplicated into another weapon with a different aircraft or is it hardcoded so only one flare weapon works

though if it works I may have to make a tutorial on it or something

I'm not saying what it is though! its a secret

also wondering what the nonhelicopter plane logic is about?

There are tutorials explaining how to make airstrike weapons ala Boris.
Post your idea if it still seems new and clever :thumbsupsmiley:
No idea what you mean by the non-heli plane stuff though.

my idea may beable to recreate the spectre gunship from generals depending if it works though

the nonheliplane logic I found on Npatch is it how kirovs float up and down?

Ok its almost works though I may have to explain my idea

it was simple really just have the fire SW fire the flare weapon making a cargo plane with a limited amount of ammo fly and encircle the target

the weapon would be a heavy shell gun like the specter gunship

Scatter big cellspread blast for warheads

Though I dunno if the flare gun works correctly yet

The 'non-helicopter plane logic' is very badly named. Its correct name should be 'Non-VTOL aircraft'. It means that your plane will take off and land like a regular plane, or aircraft in RA1.

Ok kinda stuck on 2 things

My Copter is staying off the ground though the rotor doesn't move whiles its idle also I got the same problem with my kirov and its blades

and I'm trying to get the blimp the bob up and down in the air as well.

Would I need to edit the HVA for that?

and meaning to ask about something I noticed the Conyards had a 4th animation thats disabled the one with their destroyed animations just wondering if I did enable them if theres anything thats wrong with the code or the animations themselves

Some of the mods I've seen have kirovs floating tilting up and down not just looking like its stuck in the air

Also was doing that mirage tank tutorial from deezire after doing it the tanks unable to target trees or anything and change

Mirage Tank
[MGTK]
UIName=Name:MGTK
Name=Mirage Tank
Image=RTNK
Prerequisite=GAWEAP,GATECH
DisguiseWhenStill=yes;gs I can no longer pick a disguise nor deploy

IsSelectableCombatant=yes
CanDisguise=yes
CanApproachTarget=no ; gs 9/15 Re-put in. But now this will not apply to an Attack Mission. Best of both worlds, and Dustin kicks butt
;CanRetaliate=no ; thought about this one too. Don't need it since first shot will disguise as the bad guy and then you can keep shooting, and he'll keep shooting since you don't detach on disguise
;CanPassiveAquire=no ; not essential, but might not want it giving away position
Explosion=TWLT070,S_BANG48,S_BRNL58,S_CLSN58,S_TUMU60

EliteAbilities=SELF_HEAL,STRONGER,FIREPOWER,ROF
Accelerates=false
ImmuneToVeins=yes

[TankMakeupKit] ; Mirage tank's version since he targets different things
Damage=1
ROF=100
Range=-2 ; infinite
Projectile=Invisible
Speed=100
FireOnce=yes ; Firing clears TarCom so only one shot is fired
Warhead=TankSnapshot

Report=MirageTankDisguise

[TankSnapshot]
Verses=0%,0%,0%,0%,0%,0%,0%,0%,0%,0%,0% ; the weapon that was this warhead has TerrainFire
MakesDisguise=yes

heres the code for it though it can't target trees or anything with tankmakeup

Ah, my mod would be one of those... its just Jumpjet controls adjustment, play with'em..omit a few etc and it would begin go up and down but keep in mind..this exposes it to overlapping other voxels in flight. :good:

as for spinning rotors..like one said about siege chopper..just one tag from it and your rotors will spin forever

DeployToLand=yes

i know you think literally now that since tag says deploy to land..it allows it to land with deploy if i put that, but it won't when you don't have an UnloadingClass= to deploy into, while of course i have used it to allow them to land for repair vehicle repairing but this wont work for any transport choppers so dont waste time trying that.

Tag just makes sure game thinks chopper isn't landed when its in idle state (not being commanded to) and only when landed(deploy) should its rotors stop.

as for Mirage disguise system enabling i think you needed to remove DisguiseWhenStill=yes as I'vw had that system working before but then it allows not just trees to be targeted so be warned...

also please use the "Code" box feature of the forum to post your code more neatly :p
