Unit Auto Repair Widget

Post by thesleepless »

ok, just made a Unit Auto Repair Widget

http://spring.jobjol.nl/show_file.php?id=1654

any unit with repair ability in the vicinity of a damaged unit will repair it, even if it's moving, but not if it's building something.

Known Issues

If the repair unit is set to repeat it'll repeat the repair order forever, not sure how to fix this... I need to remove the order somehow after the repair is completed.

Selection of which unit to repair is currently just based on distance, it should probably be based on the value and health of the damaged unit

But this means you can send con/repair units with your main attack force and they'll repair any combat units that get damaged as they go

It'd be nice to be able to add an AutoRepair toggle button for the unit, is this easy to do?

I'd like to stick this into CA. It would complement the retreat widget since I can take out the functionality that makes cons repeat+arearepair when placed in a retreat zone (which was annoying at times). Nice work.

Don't worry, I'll debug it for you as I play and you can keep pulling it out of CA. :P

Car, you weren't on for me to yell at you earlier. This thing needs to not give orders to nanos. Especially orders out of reach.

It needs to ignore nanos completely, we have smart nanos for that.

How is this better than setting my cons to repeat on + area repair?

Area repair doesn't work so hot on cons mixed into battle groups.

The widget sees everything, and does everything very fast, you don't :wink:

Widget is nice but I often have problems with builders stopping their normal build-task to repair some nearby units. Is this intended? I thought only idle builders would be affected by this widget?

That shouldn't be, I assume. There will be kinks to work out.
