KuroTA v0.52 Released

Post by Kuroneko » 19 Feb 2007, 00:14

By popular demand, I'm releasing the current KuroTA build. More fixes, changes, and additions than I've remembered to document have been applied since 0.51.

New version today, which includes some fixes!

Fixed aiming problems with Arm Centurion and Core Wouter
Fixed script error with Arm Lvl 3 construction building
Slightly increased speed of suicide units
Changed models of the large walls

Increased repulsor energy cost
Modified Abductor's movement
Fixed buildpics on waller's build menu
Fixed Core Python's firing
Arm Coal Plant and Core Oil Plant's metal requirement reduced

--Removed--

Have fun!

----------------------
================
----------------------

Hello all, long time no see. Recently, I've managed to keep Real Life (tm) at bay, and worked on KuroTA for a while. Managed to clean up some of the long standing bugs, and balanced quite a few things. The following is a horribly incomplete list of changes...

Arm Ripper is less effective vs aircraft
Core Obliterator now fires rockets instead of plasma
Core Obliterator now in the Core Adv Construction Platform
Torpedo mex is now a viable structure
Seaplanes now land underwater
Core Osprey now balanced (more so at least)
Mine Field Jammer is now a transportable Short Range Jammer
Core Limiter, Core Caine, Arm Abel, Arm Valient's corpses now sink
Arm Rebel script errors have been fixed
Arm Gauss Hover Craft script errors have been fixed
Arm Wasp weapon nerfed slightly
Arm Vega weapon nerfed slightly
Arm PACKO ranged reduced slightly
Arm Shika can now actually hit aircraft effectively
Arm Condore removed
Core Porcupine HP increased
Bouy's baseplate now invisible
Mauler and Fury's metal-to-fire requirements removed
Arm Annihilator energy-to-fire requirements increased slightly
Core Elemental's range reduced
Arm Manta's buildpic fixed, and weapon damage increased
Arm Mini-Bertha energy-to-fire requirements increased
Arm Anomaly now in the Arm Adv Construction Platform
Core Sky Fortress energy requirements increased

As previously stated, this list is very incomplete since this version has been in work since the last one was released (So, thats about 10 months f work...off and on, of course) and I can never remember to build a changelog list along the way. Anywho, here are the links!


--Removed--


As always, feel free to leave (constructive) comments about balance and units and what not. I'm always willing to listen to your suggestions to make the mod better. :)

Added to modit.

Errors:

Optimize this:

There is duplicate movementclasses, that is bad, because it just makes the path calculations slower.

Edit: There is 13 unused movement classes, look that "count" value...
If you remove those unused classes, this mod path calculation goes 2 times faster!

Wow, thats a whole bunch of stuff that my error finding stuff doesn't look for (I only look for fatal stuff :P) Thanks, I'm already working on fixing them.

I retract my previous statement. Those units were actually even older units (From, like, original TA) than what I thought they were. Needless to say, they are being cleaned up.

I love that script o_o, must have.

You've got the same evolva script and texturing issues as other mods using the evolva models do.

Ok, so I redid the Cambell tank, honestly It need a bit of a facelift more so than any other unit in the mod. It also was not textured much like other arm tanks. I tried to keep to the orginial as much as possible and maintain the arm texture scheme, the script needed to be tweaked to match the new setup and I tried to keep the old values to avoid a balance issue.

If it meets approval I can pack it into a little zip and ship it your way..

I must say I never really cared for the look of the campbell. That yellow camoish thing was pretty fail.

Ohhh the hellfire, now that was a piece of pwn.

All in all I like it.

KuroTA was always a lot of fun, I'll have to give it another go.

That new model would look better with barrels more relative to other units. The uber-sized barrels look out of place. But the color scheme is an improvement for sure.

It's probably a file naming convention. Alot of mods use a mixture of capitals and lowercase in unit names when in linux its very sensitive to the exact name. In windows it will work because case sensitivity is ignored.

But it CAN raid outposts and forces with no radar coverage, and can be mixed in with other forces to disguise your true numbers from the enemy. He might see a vast mass of units on the radar, but only a scattered force when they come closer.

I do still update it internally, but I haven't released a version for a long while as you can tell. Perhaps I'll release an RC after this weekend.
