Tree limits

Recommended Posts

So im making a jungle map, this means trees, lots of trees... however i have hit the limit of placeable terrain items.

i have tried adjusting the limit in the .mpr for my map and re-opening the editor however this did not work.

is it POSSIBLE to place more then this seemingly arbitrary limit? if so how?

Might not actually work ingame though; there are limits on these things in the rules file too.

Not to mention these limits exist for a reason. I know C&C1 gets serious slowdowns with too many trees on screen.

I guess he's talking about RA1.

I actually never placed so many trees in a map. But you can change this limit from rules.ini in your map: Insert

[Maximums]
Terrain=999

Then go to [terrain] section and copy all terrain objects into a separate text file.

delete all terrain objects in your map and go on placing trees. last but not least open your map again with a text program and insert the terrain objects from your other file.

worked out for myself that i can exceed this limitation using the new editor =]

yeh so this didnt work... simply didnt render trees placed in order of first to last (most recently placed trees seem to be rendered with priority)

honestly, sounds a bit too complicated for me at this stage, first map ive made since getting the new cncnet editor so just trying to play around at this point, learn how to trigger and what not...

ended up completing my map by replacing a large amount of what was going to be trees with sporadic ridge lines... it works well enough and because of the theatre (which holy s*** can i just say is so awesome) still makes it feel claustrophobic enough for me

Thanks :D author here.

Yes, reading your first post this is what I wanted to suggest to you, to only fill up the LOS of your units with trees, the rest doesn't matter. I was experimenting with this myself. Would you like to post the map here? I'd love to have a look at it, how others exploit it's features. Please also try the Barren and the Cave tileset, and I also have an improved DESERT tileset, too (original trees & ROCK stuff in place of trees, they crumble upon destruction)

Ive made a bunch of irrelevant changes to various things just trying to get used to the editor and what it can do so you can more or less ignore those, for example the player start location is only because im testing it with the skirmish mode for now

im intedning to make this a multiplayer co-op sort of mission (layers upon layers of triggers will be needed OMG o.O)

i set myself a task and a half with this map but im loving it so far, always loved making maps now i can make missions its so good haha

Yes, but I guess some pieces of that engine are unchanged :P

well i did attach the tag as Red Alert 1 so thought this would be obvious... have since put Red Alert 1 on the first line of my other posts just to be clear :P

Nah, it's cool, the tags are there for that. It's just that the RA engine is still largely the same as the C&C one in most areas except AI, so it's not such a stretch to consider that known issues from C&C1 could be the reason for the ini rule limits in RA1.

      Hello guys!
      I had a weird a weird issue.
      I'm currently developing a next version of CCRDX mod and i modified one civilian slot (C3 known as Shelly) as a buildable unit. As rules.ini i turned a value NamedCivilians=yes and with Ingame Strings editor i edited conquer.eng Shelly's name as a suitable unit name. Let's just say that Shelly is no more Shelly but her in-game name is Sniper.
      A few days ago i was testing a mission which had a Desert theater and i found out that if NamedCivilians is turned on, some of the civilian building names are really weird, such as "are you propse a draw?", etc.
      -> clicking on that building crashes game immediately.
      -> But when namedcivilians is turned off, the building name is "civilian building" and game won't crash anymore.
      -> But if NamedCivilians is turned off, my C3 slot unit name is "Civilian" and i can't edit the name. This is a quality issue.
       
      Any ideas how to fix this issue?
      My goal: I want that each civilian building has a name "civilian building" and game won't crash and also i want that my C3 unit in-game name is Sniper.
      What i know is that editing rules.ini putting the name tag on a certain building can fix this, but it can also cause many crashes making my mod non-playable. I also tried to make a list of every Civilian building, put the Name=Civilian Building on it and insert these values under certain mission file, this worked 50-50.

      this problem occurs to me for a long time ... i have been using a laptop and this problem occurs to me, and now i am using a desktop machine which is much more powerful than my previous laptop and so far this problem occurs to me.
