Re: attackable ghosted buildings

It all depends on how the units are going to interact with the 'minerals'. Through reclaiming? Through attacking/damage? Completely through lua? I think fake units is a bad idea, and definitely avoidable.

I've updated mex snap in the widget DB (link for the lazy), I don't have rights to update the others though, try contacting the authors.

Re: Can we be allowed to select enemy units?

You could redo the whole selection system in a widget, i.e. drawing the box yourself. 'Smart Select' does this already (I don't know how well) and has some filtering logic that you would want (i.e. If a box selects both enemies and allies, they probably just wanted the allied units)

Re: Knockback.

You could look for hitting-the-ground damage in :PreDamaged, and if it was high enough (Indicating its going to have a noticible bounce) you could destroy it instead, or maybe use MoveCtrl to stop/slow it.

Re: Spring has less players

Imo this is a mod-side problem, not an autohost problem. While simultaneous cooperation between present and future autohosts on what settings to use might solve the problem, it isn't going to happen. If it is the case that a mod plays best with a particular amount of players, and has gameplay rapidl...

Re: Arcing Lightning effect.

just quickly did this as a demo: Is there a way to have the 'arcs' between units as a single textured "beam" (i.e. the lightning weapon in the screenshot) as opposed to a line of discrete CEGs? Generalizing it, how would one go about drawing a flat 2D texture (i.e. the lightning weapon texture) bet...

Really cool idea.

Re: Spring.Pos2BuildPos - BUG ?

Indeed it is a bug.

Pos2BuildPos doesn't take a facing argument and ends up using a hardcoded facing of 0 (south). So for non-square buildings facing west/east there can be a mismatch.

Re: Balanced Annihilation 7.50

I also noticed Krog's crush weapon is broked, it just does not crush anything like it used to. That's due to a weapon/script change that synced the stomp with each of the krogs legs (and to only stomp units by the legs). A cool idea but the range was made too short, most of the time pathing causes ...
