Hi Guys,

I'm fairly new to this, but I wanted to make some slight changed to the veterancy settings in the rules.ini and firestorm.ini. I was using the guide from this website: http://tiberian.iwarp.com/editingguidetots.htm to get me started. There are a few things I don't understand. There are VeteranAbilities and EliteAbilities, as well as a bundge of multipliers for veterancy bonuses (veteran factors). I figured out that to make the veteran factors work, they need to be in correspondence with the VeteranAbility or EliteAbility it corresponds with (e.g. "VeteranCombat" factor corresponds with the "FIREPOWER" VeteranAbility that is to be added in the unit characteristics under VeteranAbility or EliteAbility (if I'm off somewhere, please correct me).

What I want to achieve is a veterancy bonus for FIREPOWER for example when the unit gains veterancy and I would like to give it another bonus when it turns elite. The sample below is how I tried to achieve that with the Hover MRLS:

---

Name=Hover MLRS
Category=AFV
TargetLaser=yes
FireAngle=32
Prerequisite=GAWEAP,GARADR
Primary=HoverMissile
TooBigToFitUnderBridge=true
Strength=230
Armor=wood
TechLevel=7
CrateGoodie=yes
Sight=7
Speed=7
Owner=GDI
Cost=900
Turret=yes
Points=30
ROT=5
Crusher=no
Crewed=yes
Explosion=TWLT070,S_BANG48,S_BRNL58,S_CLSN58,S_TUMU60
VoiceSelect=25-I000,25-I002,25-I004,25-I006
VoiceMove=25-I012,25-I014,25-I016,25-I018,25-I022
VoiceAttack=25-I014,25-I022,25-I024,25-I026
VoiceFeedback=
MaxDebris=4
SpeedType=Hover
Locomotor={4A582742-9839-11d1-B709-00A024DDAFD1}
MovementZone=AmphibiousDestroyer
ThreatPosed=25    ; This value MUST be 0 for all building addons
DamageParticleSystems=SparkSys,SmallGreySSys
VeteranAbilities=FASTER,STRONGER,FIREPOWER,ROF,SIGHT
EliteAbilities=SELF_HEAL,FASTER,STRONGER,FIREPOWER,ROF,SIGHT

---

When I test this, I found it only get's the bonus on first veterancy, but not a second time when going to Elite (even though that is what I put in the rules.ini).

Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong and how should I achieve this? It is simply meant to make the whole deal of gaining veterancy and elite status more gratifying.

Thanks!

A unit can't obtain the same veteran bonus more than once; that is, putting the same bonus in both VeteranAbilities and EliteAbilities won't make it stack. In this case, what you could do is give the unit an elite weapon (Elite=weaponname) which is stronger.

      I just downloaded the Tiberian Sun: Firestorm game from the site and I was so excited to get to play this game again. Then when I went to click on the icon to start playing, I received a notice that the extention 'Game.exe' had been moved or was deleted and I have no way to play this game that I just installed. Can anyone help tell me why? Windows 10 x64 OS.

      Hi,
      I installed cncnet_1.0_all.deb successfully however when it tries to run the initial setup/update it gives an error:
      Download failed: Success. In the window behind it seems that it is trying to download dotnetfx.exe and failing with the error "Cannot connect".
      Subsequent attempts to launch cncnet give the following error:
      0009:err:mscoree:CLRRuntimeInfo_GetRuntimeHost Wine Mono is not installed However, if I run
      rm -rf ~/.local/share/cncnet then run cncnet it will open the cncnet window with the same "Download failed: Success." error while trying to download dotnetfx.exe
      I am running Pop! OS 20.04 which is based on Ubuntu 20.04. Any help is appreciated.

      We have a private discord server for Tiberian Sun ladder players set up now as well! Players can suggest maps in there and we're also going to have polls.
       
      Everyone who played at least 10 ladder games can join. Post here if you want to join or send me/xme a message on cncnet OR discord OR post here in the forums and tell us the nickname you used to play the 10+ games.
       
      Example: Here is how it looks like on the Red Alert 1 ladder discord:

      It will be similar on the Tiberian Sun discord.

      Custom map previews are enabled again!
      This gives a great advantage to specialty maps, you can actually make it stand out so players will actually stay and try it out, and also list the required map options in the image

       
       
      Funky even made a little tool that creates the code, to put in map. A simple drag image on top of the tool and voila,
      Create custom image (256x256 pixels max) Drag image on top of CnCNetPreviewGen.exe Download   copy code of created file into your map save map, restart cncnet, pick map, click on blue WARNING button, give me your checksum+map name   Reply with checksum and map name here, or pm me whatever u want
      Then i'll whitelist it!!
      Give it to me like this example:
      5e5af5ae6491ad645de88ca03e8f636bbf78557b=TowerDefense Rally RACE! Jungle [V2]
       

      @Agrathore @A3H-Hitman @PTapioK @eliteGi @bk57 @Humble  plz let other map makers know too, can't think of them all atm, ty.
