negative damage to units, enables edgeeffectiveness greater than 1 LOL, finally negative damage (i.e., healing)... only, what, about 10 months later? Cool! Just make sure it can't take Units over their max hitpoints. I did. There are also checks for no experience when the unit is at full health. Wh...

Everything I know is wrong! :evil: :? :cry: :oops: :| Apparently it's not relative to the unit at all. If you attack the shield side of the unit when it's facing right, it does normal damage, and if the unit turns around, and you attack the same side, now it does double damage. Anyway, it will be r...

Does the angle 'swung' around depend on the damage dealt? judging from a quick scan of the code snippet it does... No, it doesn't. It's based on how long the units have been unattacked. Edit: Oops, I saw it wrong. Attacking your own units will end up slowing it down by breaking up the updates, and ...

Will? It's been there for a long, long time.

The "front" is defined as the direction the first shot comes from. Yes. I'll explain more. The variable "bonusShieldSaved" builds up over time, and it is set to a small amount after each attack. The higher "bonusShieldSaved" is, the more the 90% damage direction can move to face incoming attacks. (...

bonusShield is dead! Long live flankingBonus!

Editing for anyone coming along: some of what I said early in the thread is wrong. I assumed it followed the unit, rather than the pile of wtf that is its default mode. The original post: There is a function at the beginning of calculating damage that gives a bonus to flanking. If you attack from th...

I've updated my patch in the mantis to use isDead . Also, looks like there is a crashing unit parameter that is TRUE when an aircraft is in crashing state, so my patch now also works for units in that state. I would think crashing would be best as a badtarget-y thing, rather than notarget, as they ...

Woot! Anyway, already told you some of this, but I've found two bugs: 1. Hubs try to build out of their range. 2. Whatever I specify for building spacing, NTAI adds one to the number in game. When I want to set it at 0, I can't, and if I set it at -1, there are no blocking units at all for affected ...

The main server is down.

Go to options and change the server address to server3.unknown-files.net
Then play some games!

Forgot about the toolkit. I've found two bugs with it. One major, one minor. 1. On the units tab, when I deselect properties, they aren't removed and are back if I move to a different unit and then to the first again. 2. When a different config is opened, whatever tasklist was loaded on the prior co...

As of XE9.66C: Unfixed: 1. Hubs always try to build on their exact coordinates, and don't find an empty space. 2. Commanders often randomly head for the top-left corner, but it's rarer for the ones in slot #1 to do so. 3. I got a crash that I believe was caused by NTAI trying to set the fire and mov...

A little more info: Whether the task list is made of random movement, building, whatever, it stops after doing one thing. When the one unit the factory built was a con, the con moved out, and then did nothing on the task list, so maybe it just doesn't get the idle message. Pressing stop a few times ...
