Animated Tiles/TileSet possible?

Post by Zeruel87 » Thu Nov 14, 2019 12:26 pm

Greetings,

i wonder if it is possible to make Tiles that are animated.
i know that i can make actors like trees and aniamte them, but what about if i want to make an animated ground tile like gras moving to the wind or flowers.

if i do this with an actor it occupies a space which means you cant place a building on it.

Is it possible to make an anmiated tile that you can build on and if yes how?

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

The best idea I can think of which doesn't need coding tricks would be periodically detonating an ownerless weapon with Lua from the world actor and chaining the animation to it.
