AI Code

Post by HE95 »

Hi i'm just asking about developing or adding a new Cvar to the game, i want to find a way to the ai to give him additional cash, i tried to modify the truck by changing the cost from 500 to -5000 it works and added TRUK to ai but when you take it down the game crushes.
So the best thing is to give the extras ressources by adding an exact command: /givecashai
thanks for helping

The best solution would likely be adding a "CashTrickler" trait that is conditional and enabled by the "GrantConditionOnBotOwner" trait.
For example adding something like the following would give the normal AI $50 every 5 seconds:

Code: Select all

CashTrickler:
	Amount: 50
	RequiresCondition: enable-normal-ai
	Interval: 125

You'd have to add that to the code in "ai.yaml" under "Player:".

Odd, that shouldn't crash at all. I'll have a look at it.

I see, CashTrickler doesn't work on player actors right now (engine bug), sorry for being misleading here. For now you can try putting that trait on a dummy actor, or just putting on for example the construction yard so that AIs get money while that still exists.

Fwiw, I have filed OpenRA/OpenRA#18182 so we'll hopefully have this error resolved for upcoming releases.
