Units based on Siege Tank Turret have the full UI stats display when selected, but Goliath Turrets don't:

I want Goliath Turret, Cargo ship, Mercenary Ship, Disruption Web, and Nuke to have the full UI stats display.

In GPTP, I investigated stats_panel_display.cpp and weapon_armor_tooltip.cpp, but had no success.

In stats_display_main.cpp, canDisplay = UnitStatCondFunc(unitStatFuncs[activeUnit->id].UnitStatCondFunc); probably return false for this unit id, thus skipping completely the display.
There may be other issues after that though.

Have you changed the Status Preset value in FireGraft? Try setting it to Normal Unit.



all i am is a contrary canary
but i'm crazy for you

The Curious

Yeah, Firegraft is about enough to change that.



Who am I, and why should I care?

It has worked. Thank you! :thumbup:

For future beginner searchers:
Steps to turn special units like Turrets or Disruption Web into normal, Marine-like unit:
1) in PyDAT: Copy Marine Entry over Goliath Turret / Disruption Web / whatever speical unit slot
2) in Firegraft: Find the changed unit and set "Status Presets" to "Normal Unit" and "Button Set" to "Basic Commands" (or sth similar)

I also attached images of the steps in Firegraft and PyDAT to this post.
