Re: Cobra skirmish AI

^ I made a workaround where I randomly offset the locations passed to pickStructureLocation() up to three tiles. This made it possible for Cobra to build its base on Startup position 0 and all Butterfly map positions. It shouldn't negatively affect anything and hasn't from my tests so far. (edit: we...

Re: Cobra skirmish AI

So, problem is that cobra trucks at base do nothing, despite there are 3 more dericks built. Looked to later commits names - not sure if they affect this. I know about this one. But it's not a problem with the bot. It's a failure with pickStructureLocation() . It can't find anywhere to place the HQ...

Re: Cobra skirmish AI

1. Chess like defense struct layout. The shift seems to happen at some point due to bad alignment with terrain. Though units usually try to move between diagonally placed structs, it happens so slow, that they are practically unpassable. If Cobra has no base structures to build anymore then it star...

Re: More colors for campaign mode?

Er I'm kinda lost, not a programmer here. Also do you mean "changePlayerColour(player, colour)" or "setPlayerColour", cause on the wiki it says the former. Do I just add on line 242 before "setCampaignNumber(1);", something like "changePlayerColour(0, 3)"? :lol2: It's changePlayerColour(). Guess I ...

Re: More colors for campaign mode?

Yep. By using changePlayerColour() you can change the color of a player. You could mod the base rules.js starting here and that will forcibly set different colors for the player/AI. Campaign player numbers are like so: 0 - Human player 1 - New Paradigm 2 - The Collective 3 - Nexus As for the color v...

Re: Cutscene upscaling

Yo, I took a quick look at these. They mostly look great! There isn't really any fast way to test the sequences in-game other than using the "let me win" cheat (or "ascend" if you know the in-game mission labels well enough). The biggest issue is the broken outro. It has a sort of "underwater" effec...

Re: Idea for maps or challenges: Tower Defense

NoQ made a tower defense mod with completely custom maps some time ago. Don't know if it works with modern version of Warzone since I haven't checked it out myself. This is an idea I'd like to see as a challenge someday. I believe challenges have massive potential. It would be great to see more than...

Re: Idea: WZ Battle Royale

It's possible with scripts. We can scale down the playable area of maps with setScrollLimits(). Some stuff might need to go through syncRequest() and eventSyncRequest, if you want the mod to be multiplayer compatible. Basically, if it alters any aspect of the playable game (object health, removal of...

Re: Flamer aim?

Is it impossible to make dispersion based on exact distance instead of range classification short/medium/long? When I played flamer tanks in skirmish, units did not intentionally turn aim, but sometimes fire goes up to 90 deg to side. Not just ugly, but... impossible (can't remember exact situation...

Re: Multiplayer hosting issue

^ Highly unlikely. It's going to be some settings aren't properly configured before that is a problem. Afraid I'm not well versed in this area, but I'll give it a try. There are two firewalls to worry about. The software-level one and the router one. 1. Have you made sure Warzone2100 is an exemption...

Re: [3.2+] NullBot 3 ‘Reloaded’

1. It doesn't research nearly fast enough (or the wrong things) One of NullBots main issues is slow money spending which notably makes it lunch for bots that are super aggressive early game. NullBot could benefit from tighter power checks too. 2. Doesn't build the strongest army compositions. Like,...

Re: Flamer aim?

Flamers tend to have poor long range accuracy, however, that isn't necessarily a bad thing and notably helps a fleeing unit that can keep its distance from a pursuing flamer. Probably one of the best cases of where army speed can make a big difference going against flamers. Flamer: long range = 3 ti...

Stat editor program idea

I was think about how we have WMIT for models, and flame for map editing, and then realized we are missing a big tool. I would think it would be highly beneficial to have a multi-platform GUI-based stats editor program someday. At the moment, one has to edit the .json files in a text editor which le...

Re: Command Turret balance

The reason of their usability is focus fire You should do that and much more than that when you micromanage your army manually, otherwise your army would die horribly against a smaller army. That makes command turrets much worse than manual micromanagement because they prevent you from doing anythi...
