Is there a way to paradrop tanks in RA2/YR?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I am currently working on a "soft mod" of Yuri's Revenge (really just edits to the rulesmd.ini file), and was wondering if it was possible to allow tanks to be paradropped. Alternatively, is it possible to make a vehicle that can paradrop units on command, rather than from the support power (as in, you load units into it, then can deploy them from the air, as opposed to having to land first them evac the units)?

 

Thanks!

You can give an aircraft type some tags to do something like this although it behaves a bit strange. I think they require Landable=yes and the same tags that flak tracks use to carry infantry. If you load infantry units into this aircraft and the aircraft has a Primary weapon, telling the aircraft to attack something will instead make it paradrop all the infantry inside around the target. This can also work by using force fire (CTRL click).

To paradrop vehicles, you need to give it Carryall=yes and make it pick up the vehicle. IIRC, paradropping tanks can cause bugs with the tank's size. Carryall logic is also pretty broken in default YR, you need Ares (https://ares.strategy-x.com/) to get carryall logic working

      Hi there. So my friend has some issues with connecting in game through CNCNET. He can connect to CNCNET, join a game, launch the game and load but he disconnects after only building like 25% of his power plant, this issue is consistent. Has anyone else had this issue cause i've not seen this before. Any information like logs/video's/screenshots etc let me know and i'll do my best to get them for you, i believe he is on windows 10. Any help for this will be appreciated.

      hi guys,
      Not sure if this question should be part of this forum.
      Im having difficulties with starting the YR-client (Windows 10) since  today. Yesterday everything was just running fine. As soon as I try to run the client nothing happens...I dont even see a task/proces running in task manager. I even tried to reinstall YR and the CNC-net client with no results.
      Can you help me out?
      With kind regards,

      Hello there, i can't update game client, it said an dll can't be downloaded and to verify if firewall is blocking the client or to get help from forum, so here i am.
      I checked firewall and even created new rules so i'm 200% firewall will not block it. I know firewall have 2 panel, one where you just have to check some box to say ALLOW and another where you have to create firewall rule. It doesn't work, i have another pc where i get the update(Client update, archive, upload to drive then to my original pc).
