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 removed the macOS downloads since Apple dropped support for 32-bit applications in their latest version of macOS (10.15 Catalina).
      Downloads might be added again at a later point once there is a solution for supporting the new macOS Catalina.
       
       
       
      If you're running a older version of macOS you can still try to install the games (C&C / Red Alert / Tiberian Sun) manually:
       
      Step 1: Install wine-stable https://wiki.winehq.org/MacOS
      Step 2: Download the following script, right-click and select Open https://downloads.cncnet.org/cncnet.command.zip
       
       
       
      If you're running the new macOS Catalina 10.15:
       
      Use bootcamp: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201468

      On a Mac running VMWare Fusion with Windows 10. 
      Game runs run, but whenever I go to "Play Online" CnCnet loads fine, I select online, and the chat window loads but never connects / no one is ever on it.
      Is this some network setting I need to change (I'm an Apple guy haven't used PC's in close to 20 years). Or is there another plugin or patch to install.
      Again the game runs fine and this loads, just can't seem to "connect" into the network.
      My father is running this same game on a Mac through the Wine Emulator and connects and plays online all the time.
      I had the same thing working but just upgraded to Mac Catalina today and it wiped out the game.
      Thanks for your help!

      In C&C: Red Alert vehicle named as "V2 Rocket" is a 9K52 "Luna-M" or "FROG-7" in NATO reported name.
      I suggest to improve the vehicle name or make it optional.
      Ingame vehicle model.

      "Luna-M" (FROG-7) – Soviet short-range artillery rocket system.

      V-2 – Nazi Germany long-range guided ballistic missile.

      If I set  Passengers = number of passengers it may carry (def=0) to 5 for a normal tank, I am able to enter it with 5 infantry guys.
       
      However they are not able to leave the tank any more… is there any possibility?
