Healthbars are gone. The wigdet turns off(yellow) immedietly when you turn it on manually.

I heard someone talk about a new bomber behaivour.

In nota they stop directly as they start to drop bombs making most of their bombs drop short and hit infront of the target.
You can now give orders to them as they are out of fuel so it is possible to shift queue a command ontop or in the direction of the target to make the bombers more accurute.

Although you are not always able to control them after they are out of fuel. Don't know why.

I somehow fixed it or I have new version of healthbars widget. Try our version for newbies with prepared GUI and activated widgets, it works.

https://rapidshare.com/files/2489147794 ... idgets.zip

Btw there are my 2 enhancements for Unitmarker and RankIcons widgets.

First works with NOTA now and add marks for 20-25 most important targets (same number for each side). There are are other markers prepared for easy editing in the widget file (for example all t2 towers) to be put on (only deleteting of "--" is needed)

Second uses not 4 levels of units ranks depending on experience, but 7 levels. Im not sure, if it stay like that, maybe 4 was enough, but it works too.

healthbars widget breaking is due to this:
http://springrts.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=26302
Several fixed versions are in various games, so grab one there.
If it still works for you, you probally have a local fixed hp widget in your engine folder.

I had this problem in PA. You need to go into the weapon defs since NOTA still uses FBI files. and change commandfire=1; to commandfire=0; on anything that has that tag. I'm not sure if it's default or not so removing the tag may also fix the problem.

BAD aircraft fuel bug - every aircraft sit down when it is out of fuel.
I think it's feature. You should build airpads and carrier for long distance attack. But if gameplay suffer may be it should be fixed.

did not look at the gadget but it might be that you only disable the button. (making it non-clickable)
AIs do not click buttons but give the orders directly. Could use AllowUnitCreation or block the orders etc to stop that but then you need a way to communicate that to AIs.

Aircraft only land when there is not free airrepairpads available. But that happens alot. They used to fly back to the airrepair pad and circle it and wait for their turn. Now they land instead and when they fly again, no other airplane can use the airpad until this unit have landed and refueled.

Its not such simple. Read more here http://springrts.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=27500.

- planes use max. 6-12 pads, more pads doesnot effect it (number depends on map too. strange.. )
- you cannot command plane, when it land (so theres some orderd "refuel" in a quee, that cannot be crossed)
- deleting nota lua refuel script doesnt effect the problem

I saw that ZERO-K is using fuel for bombers... have they any problem?

ZK bombers use alot of LUA I've heard.
I'm not even sure they use the Spring engine fuel.

so tests of new engine version without fuel bug are good - refueling work again, but we some new - some of them NOTA coused (missing "onlyTargetCategories", so all planes like attacking ground units... and flaks attack ground units too, and defenders and rocket vehicles can attack high attitude planes.

------------ CHANGELOG ---------------------

v1.68

FIRST TIME NOTA WITH OWN AI - N.O.E.!

GAMEPLAY
- accuracy of static flaks (Flakker/Cobra) lowered (200->600)
- accuracy of mobile flaks (Phalanx/Sentry) lowered (1850->2200)
- Jethro/Crasher, Samson/Slasher, Hermes/Horgue heightMod handicaps lowered (1.2->1.1), = a bit longer shoot distance
- Defender/Pulverizer heightMod handicaps balanced to the same value
- ship AA/SAM rockets gets heightMod = 1.1 handicap => less effective a bit
- ship flaks get back accuracy atribute (with old value) => so more incaccurate
- Centurion (flying fortress) have smaller hitsphere, now 2/9 (22,22%) of old one
- Undertow and Sinker (anti-sub hovers) have longer range for torpedoes (420 -> 590) - (subs have still 550, destroyers 630)
- Tracker mincloakdistance set on 0 (25 -> 0) (easier planting bombs)
- Team Com End option working again (gadget added) + mobile commanders counted, too, as leading units that are needed to be destroyed
- Lancet and Titan (torpedo bombers) haver smaller hitspheres, now 7/18 (39%) of old ones
- 10x bigger brake rate for construction hovers of both main sides (from 0.006 to 0.06 and from 0.008 to 0.08)
- spacebugs Alpha montro (bug1), Delta Montro (bug2), Ultra Montro (bug3), Fatso Montro (bug4), Dust Bug (bug5) and Plasma bug (wormy) + Spore Tower and Hive are no longer affected by EMP weapons, becouse they not consist of metal and have no electronic parts, flying bugs are still affected becouse EMP jam their navigation system and montrobugs are affected becouse they consist of electronic parts (+ added own armor classes for all bugs and weapons using them)
- all AIs now choose random position in ally box, minimaly 1000 from border of map, if possible (so no need for set start positions before game now)
