Re: Mission Tutorial Guide

I don't think there is a really easy way to do this currently. The best is probably using SpawnActorOnDeath with dummy actors that look like flames.

Re: Just wanted to say you did it

Saying that "mammooth" tanks underperformed in the last release is just ridiculous. I suppose you've never even played a game online. 0/8 bait.

A bit offtopic but still: I think a faster release cycle will at least mitigate the "playtesting problem" somewhat.

Re: Mission Tutorial Guide

We don't really have a exhaustive manual on that, the best is probably https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/wiki/Map-scripting and the links mentioned there. Looking at the existing missions is also a good starting point.

Re: Playtest 20190825 (Aug/Sep/Oct 2019)

Thanks for the report. I opened a ticket (OpenRA/OpenRA#17354) so we don't forget about this.

Re: ClassicProductionQueue Strange Phenomenon

That is odd, I just added a ClassicProductionQueue for Building.GDI (Group: Building) to the Player actor in TD and it worked fine. Which version are you using? (I suppose this could already be fixed, since the new spectator UI has the Production tab on F4. ^^)

Sadly I don't think this is currently possible. We have an open issue for it: OpenRA/OpenRA#6433

Re: Faction flag question

Ah right, I forgot that, sorry. In that case using Lua might really be the cleanest solution for you. I think looking at the existing mission yaml and script files would be a good starting point.

Re: Faction flag question

The easiest solution for you is probably setting an mcv owned by Creeps outside of the playable map area and removing NonCombatant.

Re: Map BagderHills (RAGL:S5) - Skirmish mode - Drop in game-speed

Tick and Render ms are the average ms spent either ticking or rendering during the last second (one second usually equals 25 ticks). Batches are the amount of times the game had to wait on the GPU (e.g. wait for a render to finish to change GPU parameters). Iirc the graph simply visualizes those val...

You can enable performance text and graph in the settings (advanced section), they can give some hints.

Re: Map Making Guide

I don't have permission to change announcements, so an admin would have to do that. Regarding the archive folder: Iirc that has been discussed once already, and the result from there was "the later pages are the archive". I don't know if that still holds, but still think that guides are better place...
