Re: Realtime Dynamic Weapon Change!

If it has a certain position it always goes into to change from, that would get rid of any funky animation resets. Just add a function that moves all parts into that positioning for lua to call. Another, probably not very fast, method would be to have a function to figure out every parts rotations s...

Re: Player specific inflation

Anything that would require changing the unit def will affect all players, not just each player individually. While that could be fun on its own, its not quite what Madrat is looking for. (It would allow player A to spam unit x, which is the best counter to unit y, when y has even been brought into ...

Re: Help with FPS

Yes. Infact, you can change it back and forth to see which option actually gives you the best performance.

I'd rather play the mod from the first third of the vid... it does use those actual sound effects though, right? Cause they were awesome!

Re: Player specific inflation

Well, that doesn't quite do the same thing. What MadRat wants would force a player to use practically every unit to maintain a viable position. Even garpikes on Comet Catcher, once the spiraling costs of Gators and Raiders has pushed them out of favor. Your idea would still leave them able to spam &...

Re: Realtime Dynamic Weapon Change!

You can save the original unit's queue, its standing orders (at least I think thats accessible somewhere...), its position, and its velocity, then assign these to the new unit. Just leaves the issue of animation position... which is a lot harder to solve... but for some uses (low animation units lik...

Re: Mod Question Repository... Questions come in, answers go out

It is possible to change at least weapon reload and accuracy on a unit by unit basis. As with anything else that the engine already changes on a unit by unit basis (for stuff like experience).

Re: Restricting Sprign to 1 core == bad idea

And from my experience, Spring tends to run better using both cores on a Pentium D 915 (with a Geforce 7600 gt) and a Core 2 duo t7250 (with some intel integrated thing that eventually causes it to crash with no/useless log).

Re: Mod Question Repository... Questions come in, answers go out

You'll just be adding a new function. You can place it in any position (well, not inside another function's block). Spring figures the rest out for you.

Re: crashes

Maybe test if this is the cause. I believe Spring was more forgiving of missing models for corpses before the lua parsers, so it could have been an undetected issue for a while now.

Re: Support for multicore in pathfinding?

Know what is interesting? The other day while playing Spring with task manager open I noticed I was at 100% computer usage... and it was all spring... and setting spring to one core reduced my framerate signigicantly.

Spring is multi-threaded now?
