Maybe you should specify, that YOUR widget works only with spring 94+, not a1983's work. Otherwise it can cause missunderstanding 8)
Agreed, I have edited my post.

Re: Attack area visualization widget

I made a similar widget, mine only works on 94.0+ though

http://www.mediafire.com/?6b2r5rxfu5brhw5

Similar work using new 94.0 TryTarget functions. Was not aware of this when I made it.

Re: And you said spring is ugly?

Currently, this map fails to load with mod: ZK lobby: ZKL Something to do with units. I went into the units folder and replaced the alltreeunits.lua file with individual unit files for the trees and it now works. - Although the trees cause Chilli Cursortip to crash, which I am not qualified to fix L...

Detection of clear firing lines

From the ZK forum AA micro thread: http://zero-k.info/Forum/Thread/1076 I'm now considering the problem of firing lines. Basically, I have no easy way of detecting if a tower can fire at a certain unit or if an ally/hill is in the way. Spring engine does it apparently, since towers on fire at will a...

Let widgets use some COB functions

Could I ask that some of the COB functions (eg. GetCOBUnitVar) get moved to widgets instead of being gadget-only?

If the widgets can't write to the unit data, they won't need to be on everyone's machine. Sometimes reading it is useful. (detecting when a unit is firing)

ZK wolverines not firing: Indirect fire trajectory

http://zero-k.info/Forum/Thread/914 I asked why wolverines refuse to fire up onto a cliff and got told that it was an engine problem. Could someone clarify what the problem is? It seems pretty simple to have the engine do a calculation of where the projectile will land without including error bars a...

Share Unit Control

Cross posting from the ZK forums: http://zero-k.info/Forum/Thread/810 Played warcraft a bit for nostalgia's sake and noticed the share control function. Basically, you check the box next to a player's name and that ally can control your units too. A notification pops up to tell them, of course. This...

Re: Multi-Touch Interaction in Spring

Here's another suggestion: When making a build queue, you can allow the dragging of the unit/building icon from the list to the queue. Eg. in the video, when you had the gunship fac selected, you could just touch-drag the icon for a brawler into the queue at the bottom and have the fac build it. Sim...

Re: Unlocks and experienced players

Well, there have been times that I wish I had Singularity Reactor. Although in every PvP game I've played, I've come to thank myself for not buying it. Either I find and destroy the enemy's one (and a good chunk of infrastructure with it) or enemy bombers/raiders would have destroyed mine had I had ...

Re: Bow down

Gimmicks like the puppy and the newton give ZK an interesting air, where you can do risky experimental stuff that mostly never works but when it does... In fact, I wou...

Re: Skirmish AI: E323AI 3.22.4

4 E323s and 2 KAIs? The thing is that KAIs have a tendency to operate huge swarms of units and refuse to attack defences that are too much for their units. E323AI continually probes defences and skirmishes, forcing those defences to be constructed. The way to defeat them lies in simply abusing air p...

I like playing against this AI, but it's still a bit to easy to porc it to death...
If you mix E323AI with KAI and count them as 1 player, it plays semi-decently in BA.

Re: Skirmish AI: E323AI 3.22.4

Played shore to shore. AI did nothing, but the logs from verbose settings told me that it kept finding the build positions blocked.

Strange that.

Re: Skirmish AI: E323AI 3.22.4

Yes, the sonars were built by me. When I realized the AI wasn't going to have any sonar at all (and thus can't see my sonar stations), I used my comm to build forward sonar stations because they give LOS in fog of war. At one point doing this gave me LOS to their hover fleet and allowed my battleshi...

Here, have a replay. This is my second game vs the new 3.25 AI. Lost my first >.<, had to relearn spring for a bit. Notes: AI can't deal with underwater units. Built sonars to get visuals on hovers! Underwater construction vehicles ignore my undefended mexes. Needs to build stuff that launch torps. ...

Re: Skirmish AI: E323AI 3.22.4

I tried a pretty strange strategy (for me at least)

Instead of trying to outbuild the AI, I just microed a small force with commander support.

Which won me the game at 10 minutes. AI needs targeting priority (shoot my commander first).

Re: Skirmish AI: E323AI 3.19.1

My brother looked at the source for slogic's E323AI 3.21.1 and we made a hack that forced the AI to only build air. Combined with normal 3.21.1, I find it provides a more challenging gameplay due to air raiding. Idea to make one AI do air start was taken from BAI's land/eco/air division between thre...
