How to create amphibious Tanks for a RA1 mod

Recommended Posts

I changed the terrain properties of [Water] in the rules.ini so vehicles could drive on land and water. A tank should move on water now ... but at the moment that vehicle leaves the shore to open water it just explodes.  :down:

Telling infantry to go over water that way (Jesus style) is possible that way. But to make infantry move on water is more challenging. For a single map just added to the game, it is probably not possible, sadly. 

But you can create amphibious tanks by further modding of theatre files. X3M gave me the idea.

So it seems to be hardcoded to vehicles to explode on TerrainTypes of [Water], but not to [Beach]. So if I set the water tiles to be Beach by RTMtype and make the [beach] entry of rules.ini moveable to both ships and units, so the tanks won't explode enymore if entering the modified water.

There are two types of terrestrial driving vehicles: Tracked and Wheeled. There are only two wheeled vehicles in RA: The Jeep and the (Neutral) Truck. So we can transform wheeled into amphibious!

1. Extract Water tiles W1 and W2 from your theater file, e.g. snow.mix, by XCC Mixer.

2. Download Nyerguds' RMTtype and set the TerrainType of all cells of W1 and W2 to beach. How to do this, take a look into the manual of RTMType.

3. Put modified W1 and W2 back to your theater by XCC Mix editor.

4. Open a map. Now it's time to do some .ini editing:

 

[Beach]

Foot=0%

Track=0%

Wheel=100%

Float=100%

Buildable=no

Now set Tracked=no if you want a specific vehicle type should drive over water,  =yes if not.

Note that now all beach tiles (SH01 - SH44) are impassable for tracked vehicles, but passable for ships. For aesthetic reasons, it is recommend to change the terrain properties of all beach tiles to [Rough] or [Clear].

      We're going to have a ladder map poll soon, you can suggest maps that should be added to the poll here.
      If it's a new/unknown map or a modified version of a original map then please add a screenshot.

      I was trying to be careful and the map worked in its early versions. The version have now is causing myself and other players to desync about 5 minutes into the game with this custom map. The map is kinda fun and different. Tried to take inspiration from starcrafts style. Its not too radical. But
      I think my questions are what makes the red alert 1 (include aftermath) dsync online? Consider its custom map, unit alterations, image changes. Worse case scenario I'll release it as a single player skirmish map. I make use of the spawn file that holds images of c&c dawn units. The RAedit adds triggers. I tried deactivating the triggers and teams hopping that was the mighty fix. Well didn't seem to do it.
