Maps should use resources_map.lua

The _post.lua is just needed to load the defs from effects/, not to load luadefs (it scans in 82 by default only gamedata/explosions/).

I put the posted ceg in gamedata/explosions, and it still doesnt show up under BA, and doesnt throw any errors in infolog either.

though they are of type "explspike" and dont use any textures.

Did you make a resources_map.lua to reference the textures?

Added resources_map.lua:

Code: Select all

local resources = {
	graphics = {
		projectiletextures = {
		map_debris2= "debris2.tga",
		map_dirtplosion2= "dirtplosion2.tga",
		map_foam= "foam.tga",
		},
	},
}

return resources
to gamedata folder, the three images are in bitmaps folder. Still no cookie: the ceg is spawned ( it works if i use textures from base) but doesnt show textures from the above resources file.

https://github.com/spring/spring/blob/d ... r.cpp#L176

looks like in resources_map it is resources.projectiletextures, no graphics intermediary?

Sorry man, I don't recall exactly what was broken. IIRC there was some sort of issue with BA not showing the smoke and it was a failing of the map resources. I don't remember if they didn't work at all or it somehow conflicted. Sorry. That is why I said I need to review my map to see if there still is an issue.

If it works perfectly now, why wait for the second now to happen, and not post it instead?

:-)

No idea why the discrepancy though - which raises questions over whether or not the behaviour is intended (and thus whether or not it will remain this way). :|

I hate typemaps, they only work for units that are assigned to whatever class spring decides.

even still with them..

the unit will charge at the pit, then because it has to break, slowdown either completely or partially in the typemapped area resulting in a stuck unit which cannot get out.

we really need a way to tell the pathfinder to avoid areas outright but not effect the speed, that way if a unit partially gets in there it doesn't get stuck.

Void water with water damage?

Looks great btw. I like the lava bursts. Layout feels good too, reminds me of good old battlezone maps, eventhough not sure how it works as teamgame. How I would see it to play well is 4-way team ffa!

+ And you haven't gone crazy with metal layout as in the last map :wink:
