I'm guessing you mean how many shots over time, and the only way to do that is modding. Sorry. :(

That map was likely made with EUD triggers in mind, however, those triggers haven't worked for several patches now. I tested the map in question, which, by the way, is not playable, and found that the "fast" battlecruisers attacked at what appeared to be a normal rate.
Sorry, but it isn't possible anymore.

Not possible.

Modding is an option.

If you move the units that the firebat is attacking to another unplaceable location, it might make him pause a bit in between shots.

Try this map:
It includes a technique for stacking units. This would cause a higher rate of fire.

I might be missing something, but I remember a map that prevented attacking at all unless a certain condition was met. I think this was done by preserving an always ally trigger with hyper triggers.
That was a while ago, but if I remember right and it works, you could possibly slow fire rates by timing it right.

That might work, allying them then unallying them in intervals, I bet that would do it.

His problem is that of making units fire faster, which isn't exactly possible. If I remember correctly wasn't there a away to "rapidfire" seige tanks by moving new ones to a location so that the cooldown happens elsewhere?

but what is with the description of starforge(starforge is a map editor)
StarForge 2.2
by Heimdal

StarForge is a map editor built from scratch. Now in its second version, it can do many interesting things, including placing square terrain, protecting maps, placing half-built buildings, and units for the hyper players (players 9-255) with interesting effects such as doubling the fire rate. StarForge plans to be just as powerful as hex-editing the map yourself, without the need to be a Neo.

He might mean it's compatible with mods, I'm not sure though, I just know that SF can't do that.

I bet he's meaning that you can increase game speed, like you could in the older patches.


Sep 5 2007, 8:24 pm Shatter Post #14

Yeah, the stuff about hyper players has changed recently-- one of the new patches made most of them not work-- previously, you could place I think a player 16 interceptor or something in order to double the map's speed, but it hasn't worked for a few patches.


Sep 5 2007, 11:23 pm Falkoner Post #15

Player 14 was the player, placing a scarab as the first unit on the map made it 4x faster, a interceptor was 2x, and I think a map revealer was 1.5x.

It just crashes the game since patch 1.14
