Lua Widget - Reclaim Area Info on M & E!

Post by Pendrokar »

Well I acctually wanted to make this myself but I still don't get the commands in Spring. All this Widget would do is show how much M or E can be reclaimed within the area with a floating text near the center of reclaim area!

Maybe it doesn't need to be a widget! Could be implemented in Spring!

http: //spring.unknown-files.net/file/3414/Feature_Calculator/

No fancy stuff yet.. This widget calculate amount of metal (no energy yet) of features in specified rectangle and shows on widget.

Does anyone know how to get amount of energy in a feature?

Problem was here:
local fm, fe = Spring.GetFeatureResources(fid)
Spring.GetFeatureResources has 5 arguments you needed to ignore the second! (first was initial metal of feature, second max metal same for E 3. and 4. but dont know what fifth is!)
local fm,_,fe = Spring.GetFeatureResources(fid)
and second problem - M and E showed equal cause of this:
... gl.Text("energy: " .. metalAmount, ...
... gl.Text("metal: " .. metalAmount, ...
Though your lua wasn't what I wanted. I wanted it to show when reclaim order with area was in action! But my oldest brother though me something about finding info on coding!

PS. My brother found those problems in your script!

I need help on this Lua script! - http://pastebin.com/m3f602f0c

Well it works, but it takes over C++ scripts such as drawing Reclaim area and reclaim it self!! :cry:

::Feel free to modify::

You mean you press on a tree or other feature and drag upon it and nothing is shown(yes need a fix...) or just about having m/e shown upon enemies? (because it already works on friendlies)

New version: - http://spring.jobjol.nl/show_file.php?id=1492

Shows the amount of metal/energy when using area reclaim.

Changes since last version:
-works within MiniMap
-you
nolonger need to have reclaim order activated to see the amount of metal in units!
-right-click area reclaim on units and
features now works the same as a normal area reclaim order!

Known bugs(not that trivial):
- does not work right in
maximized minimap
- starting area reclaim from the minimap and draging it to game world will still continue to count the
resources from the minimap. But It does not work vice-versa
