Hello people,

I'm writing the script for my new mod, however, I want to know if certain things are possible.

I'm writing a protoss script.

- Is it possible for a protoss to build a tank using the gateway? Considering that I used DATEDIT to make the siege tank a protoss unit...

- The high templar can cast dark swarm and maelstrom... but how do I tell the computer to use those spells?

That's all!

Thanks!



None.

1 - Yes.

2 - Reverse engineering and custom code is the only way.



Show them your butt, and when you do, slap it so it creates a sound akin to a chorus of screaming spider monkeys flogging a chime with cacti. Only then can you find your destiny at the tip of the shaft.

Thanks Iskatu,

I managed to solve 1 by replacing the dark templar with the tank.

Now, regarding 2... where do I start? where do I look?

Thanks

I have no clue, but Heinermann (who created BWAPI) might be able to tell you where to start. Of course, you'll need to have a firm grip on ASM and building plugins for Firegraft. Alternatively, if you are familiar with the languages supported by BWAPI you might be able to use that for single player somehow.

sigsaucy shouted: hmm, what if i generate units for a player even if theyre gone
Not sure what happens if you give to P1 if they are gone, but if you create for P1 and then give to Force 1 (or whoever) that works perfectly. But you can't create for Force 2 (if P1 is Force 2) or Current Player if you want an empty P1 slot to receive units. Also keep in mind units you do create for P1 will be hostile to everyone, regardless of ally status, and will have no AI.
