UMS Assistance FAQ Topic:

This information is intended to reduce the number of easily answerable questions posted in the
Use Map Settings Mapmaking Assistance topic. It contains a variety of miscellaneous information
about a multitude of mapmaking topics for easy reference.
(Personally I think the wiki is easy reference, but apparently some people don't know about them.)

If you think you have a good idea to submit to this thread, PM an UMS Assistance mod or GM.

If you believe any of the information in this reference material is false, PM UMS Mapping Assistance moderation.
(I'm human, I could make some errors.)

C(a)HeK -- greetings all, friends, can you check my new post? :) http://www.staredit.net/topic/18183/

IlyaSnopchenko -- Neiv
Neiv shouted: Depending on your situation you may be able to use 18/19/20/21 to select all players in a force?
thanks! Will use the force # instead most likely, if they're in the same one

Neiv -- IlyaSnopchenko
IlyaSnopchenko shouted: Anyone knows whether current player (13) is counted among allied (15) when specifying targeting flags for idle_orders in AISE?
It is not counted; the dll seems to accept a combination of multiple players there like most other extended commands, but pyai doesn't seem to allow specifying them in targeting flags

m.0.n.3.y -- Hey @roy just sent you a pm :D
[2021-1-16. : 4:05 pm]
IlyaSnopchenko -- Here's the idea - I want to specify idle_orders for area effect spells like Psi Storm and Plague so that the computer avoids hitting its own (13) or allied (15) troops
[2021-1-16. : 4:05 pm]
IlyaSnopchenko -- Or do I need to set a dedicated condition?

Oh_Man -- Zycorax
Zycorax shouted: There's a family with one or two men named Adolf around where I live. Funnily enough, the SS used their family business' offices as their HQ in town during the occupation :]
cool tale
