Re: different faction selection besides scroll menu possible?

oh okay, i have no idea how to do that or where to even start looking how to do that. (besides to look how C# works and how it is written)

Is it also only possible with a custom C# code to make the dropdown Menu for the faction choosing bigger?

ClonesProducedUnits & Clonable Trait

Greetings, it seems that the two traits ClonesProducedUnits & Clonable do not work. i tested it by adding this to a CnC Pyle (GDI barracks) ClonesProducedUnits: CloneableTypes: test and this to a normal MG Soldier (e1) Cloneable: Types: test but everytime i build a unit only 1 comes out and not 2......

WithInfantryBody - AttackSequences, how do they work?

i see there is a Trait so you can tell an infantry unit to use different attack animations for different Armaments (attacks), but i dont get it how to correctly put it in the .yaml files and i cant find an example. :?

different faction selection besides scroll menu possible?

Greetings, i wonder if it is possible to change the faction selection from 1 drop down menu with a scrollbar to for example a dropdownmenu with 2 rows and/or without a scrollbar. iam a modmaker and my mod features so many factions that the scrollbar is getting very long. i think i found regarding se...

That looks like you don't have any smudges defined. Remove the "SmudgeLayer" trait from the world actor if you don't want any smudges.
you are a wizard, you were right, that was the problem :D thanks again

Re: Possible to tell AI to use a Supply Truck to help allies?

at the moment the Script checks up to 16 players if they are played by a bot and then checks if that player is allied with all other 15 players. if yes then he gets a supply truck (or other help for upgrading buildings, vehicles and infantry) to the first ally he finde. Iam sure it can be shortened ...

Re: LUA script to force AI to build in a certain Order

hmmm... i looked into it, i cant seem to find a way to provide a prerequisite as soon as a certain number of one building is build on the map. for example: as soon as a player has 4 Power Plants - the Power Plants provide a new prerequisite necesary to build other buildings... that does not seem do ...

Re: Possible to tell AI to use a Supply Truck to help allies?

Allright, i got a code that works! it is a monstrosity with 42332 lines that i think will most likely cause facepalms and disbelieve to others that have more experience with LUA, but like i said, at least the code works and does what it should do :) so i want to share that working monstrosity: https...

Re: LUA script to force AI to build in a certain Order

A workaround could be using yaml prerequisite & condition systems. For instance you could clone the refinery (make it only available to the specific bot/faction) & make ai build Powerplant then Refinery & then refinery 2 before it can unlock other buildings. You’d need to clone most of the bots tec...

Re: LUA script to force AI to build in a certain Order

We do not support letting players place buildings via Lua, sorry. The Soviet-06 maps are currently using (horrible) workarounds to simulate the AI building a base, maybe you can get some inspiration from there. i guess you are reffering to "soviet06a-AI"? but then what is this for?: bool Build(Stri...

Re: Possible to tell AI to use a Supply Truck to help allies?

"p1" won't be defined if there is no Multi0 player (i.e. nobody in the slot). You need to make sure "p1" is not "nil" (null in Lua terms) before using it. You are probably fine in your code example if you change the if check to just "if p1 and p1.IsBot then". just tested it - IT WORKS :lol: no more...

Re: Possible to tell AI to use a Supply Truck to help allies?

this is the code i use at the moment: https://github.com/Zeruel87/AiSupplyTruck/blob/master/AISupplyTruck it works as long as the first slot in any map has a player in it, it does not matter if it is a bot or a human player. But as soon as it is empty (Open) i get the LUA error is it a problem that ...
