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.

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.

IlyaSnopchenko -- that, or they should've instead made the probes to fly somehow, so all the workers were equally capable :)

MTiger156 shouted: The management is pure evil, yes. BUT there is still some good left in the employees. They are starting a massive on-site protest tomorrow (7/28), the number of participants is supposedly in the thousands. CHANGE WILL COME!
That's not what I meant. I can see internal company culture changing, but I have zero hopes that Blizzard will go back to caring about their customers. A good rep just isn't as profitable as milking. I would say once a company becomes a stock company they cannot be the humble good guys anymore they have a duty to make as much money as possible.

I'm only aware of Germany, but I would be very surprised if they didn't try this shit in other countries too. Disclaimer: I actually have no idea how responsibly that agency is using their right to veto. Maybe they do it fine but I don't trust them. They are supposed to regulate the market and keep net neutrality. But in the past they failed to prevent shit like Stream On. It's an option for phone flatrates where Youtube etc. are making contracts with Telekom that you can continue using it even if you used up all the GBs of your volume flatrate. And even if that agency does it properly, it's just not right they can do it without a court.

NudeRaider shouted: Oh_Man idd. I had switched a long time ago out of privacy concerns. Only by chance I realized that with that I also circumvented their website bans. I find that disgusting as well. I mean I have no problem with them banning sites when court decided they are illegal and police can't take them down because server is somewhere they have no jurisdiction at. But recently they went a step further. No court needed anymore. A collection of a few dozen copyright owners, the providers decided. And some federal agency can veto, but they most likely wave it all through. And nobody is talking about it. Private firms censoring the Internet. :( It's a shame. And yes, I'm not affected. Still mad.
