AttackBomber only works well with the airstrike support power. For everything else, use AttackFrontal please.

I remember a good while ago that I got OpenRA.Utility extracting stuff from it. Don't ask me how though.The other tool I know of messes up canvas sizes so that's pretty bad for extracting imo.

Use a proper image editor. Do not use RenderSprites>Scale.

The Traits page is for the last release and thereby outdated if you're running your mission on a playtest. Use https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/wiki/T ... laytest%29 instead.

A fixed dropdown color palette is a pain in the ass to be set up - it has to consider all options of the game in a single run. This person took months with setting up 16 distinct colors in his Yuri's Revenge mod - and still had to reiterate twice. Black is out of the question, due to timers - they b...

The nonspecific unit design stuff he posted are stupid and makes no sense though. RTSes can run on different principles - they're not needed to be realistic, etc. Rock-Paper-Scissors can still give you options if you added at least two other classes then make some crippling overspecialized units alo...

Micro helps to produce the skill ladder that is in RA at the moment; if all units could hold their own when players weren't there to control them then all RA would be is a macro game; boring! That's probably true, but keep in mind that the original engines were focused on macro - in pre-Generals ga...

The RenderSimple trait is gone. You're using that on one of your actors. All older Render* traits got surpassed with RenderSprites/RenderVoxels + WithSpriteBody/WithVoxelBody and variations - thereby resolving many of the older limits of them. https://github.com/OpenRA/OpenRA/wiki/Traits-%28playtest...

Ah, a DonutArnold explosion. I see where you took that from. 8)

I'm still not certain if I like the shpified voxels though.

Advertise game online means that the game will pop up on the list at http://www.openra.net/games/ - but not necessarily the server browser afaik. To allow external players to join you either have to enable UPnP (which tends to crash if your router is unsupported) or setting up a port forwarded in yo...

Most OS SHP Builder versions does not support pre-TS SHP saving and spits out bugged results. This got fixed in this April. Use the last beta version from http://svn.ppmsite.com/filedetails.php? ... uilder.exe .

Well, I never had that issue but I also know that most custom SHPs around the internet are TS SHPs... but seriously without a crashing example I can only suggest adding ShpTS into mod.yaml>SpriteFormats: if that haven't been done before.

I don't think you should use master. The bleed is the development branch. That being said, I think you set up your environment wrong - you're trying to use folders which you don't have write access. Check out bleed into your home directory -eg /home/user/OpenRA-bleed/ - and run make dependencies && ...
