Re: Dome Tech Revamp

Obviously the harvester is poorly microed, it could have easily be put to work closer to the AA gun, denying the mig any angle of attack. Also, as a mig-veteran like me knows, you can 2-shot a harvester with 2 migs (2 attack runs), not 3 shot/burst. Migs can also easily be deterred by rocket soldier...

Re: Dome Tech Revamp

Come on, competitive games rarely see high tech. It's tanks+inf all game.

A Mig is basically a flying rocket soldier with limited ammo and a close combat attack.

Re: Dune 2000 Panel

Hi ysgamor,

you can change the UI-Scale to 150%, then the panels in-game are bigger.
Open the main menu > settings > display > Ui-Scale dropdown.
(only possible in fullscreen mode I think).

Cheers

PS: if you are looking for dune players, sunday is good day for dune (on discord and in the lobby)!

Re: Dome Tech Revamp

Range doesn't matter if the unit you are shooting at can't shoot back. See d2k siege tanks. They have way less range, they do less damage and they still shred infantry like nothing. Infantry getting hit by arty will have to crawl, so they'll have a hard time closing in. Also reducing range actually ...

Re: Dome Tech Revamp

1) Not at all a fan of the arty reload speed increase, which basically means you lose 33% more infantry to an arty. The 10% damage reduction won't change that. It means attacking into PB line + arty behind would be even more impossible than right now. 2)Don't like Mig health decrease (why?). It has ...

Re: OpenRA - Map Modding - Mini-Yaml - Syntax error of internal parser flaw/bug?

So, a 2 minute research on docs.openra.net later (https://docs.openra.net/en/latest/relea ... ts/#shroud)
you need to use this ExploredMapCheckboxLocked.
You already did this correctly in the other thread!

Re: OPENRA - Learning Mini-Yaml questions

In addition to LawAndOrders's comment,
please don't open issues on GitHub until you have familiarized yourself sufficiently with how a working mod-code/script looks and how things come together in the end. :)

Most the time it's a really simple mistake which keeps you wondering for the longest time.

As I said, you also need to lock the checkbox. Just setting the value won't do anything.

Re: Suggestion : Developer Funding for OPENRA TBS Engine

Not sure if you are aware, EA just OpenSourced the updated original cnc/ra engine source code with C&C remastered. (Which is very cool, all hail EA) They had the power to reveal the previously closed source, so it was theirs in the first place. OpenRA is, as far as I am aware a completely new progra...

Re: OpenRA - Startup settings (player / mapoptions) location

The [AR] maps (action ready) do this with standard competitive options, you may want to download such a map and look at the code in map.yaml and other .yaml's there.

Re: OpenRA - Startup settings (player / mapoptions) location

It's a bit tricky. By default map options carry over from the previous map. You can edit the rules of the map and "Lock" the options you want, however (and you have to, just defining the value you want doesn't do anything). So set and lock the options you want. See here, it's a bit of trial and erro...

Re: OpenRA - A deep dive into its source-code

Hey Adrian, it would certaily be a good idea to get c# basics going before asking the devs, and in my opinion the only way is to write some code yourself. Looking at it won't help much. If you are new to programming in general, there are excellent tutorials all around the web, with example programs ...
