MTR ( ? ): Bridge unit!

Post by Charlemagne »

In old TA someone had made a (very buggy and laggy) bridge unit. Now we have spring, but no bridge units (or buildings).

So, now I ask thee, modders and developers, is such a thing possible? Making a unit with a large, flat surface on it that other units could walk over and use as a bridge for crossing water?

perhaps indirectly, as a unit that loaded other units, then unloaded them on the other side... make it have move speed of 0 (unless its a mobile bridge! :P), i guess...

can structures be transports?

That's uhh... exactly what the OTA one did.

It's a pretty crappy non-intuitive design, really... it'd be better if the engine could just support it natively.

one day, son, one day.

Anyway, am I right to assume that the current pathing system would never ever ever be able to support something like this?

Oh and if it ever comes onto any devs todo list, dont forget to make them destructable and reconstructable (like c&c)

if we ever get bridges/roads, we need this...

*cough*I think it doesn't work because spring changes some varible it needs and it can't be fixed because I think Zwszg tried to fix it but failed *cough*

we need to make features able to be used to gain height etc....

Would be good for making maps where you go UP a massive feature and then down the other side to get to the enemy, or you COULD try to reclaim it, but that could take AGES!

Maybe you could puts all your boats close together and the kbots could walk over them.

Two words: Dirt Bomb.

Would it be plausible to make a weapon that instead of cratering, had the reverse affect of 'mounding'?

Then you could just design a unit/emplacement that fired a weapon that used this ability to raise the land over the water level... Some sort of slow firing, short range building, with high energy consumption would probably work best (high consumption to try to minimise the potential for abuse.)

Or we could make constructors abel to raise land again, and not just restore it.
