Red Dawn (RA-1)

Recommended Posts

Seeing your replies they actually make perfect sense. Now that you've highlighted them too me I think it would irritate me that they were fighting in the desert in the UK.

 

For the mission I think I just took my sweet time - I like building my nice looking bases with about $100000 spent on concrete walls.

 

Why does the Commando not have a visible ricochet on the ground when he fires? I think this also might have something to do with his inability to shoot the supply truck on Allies 3 which causes the vehicle to move past the explosive barrels. (I'll make this my last question because you would probably grow old and pass away from natural causes before I was done).

He used a "Super" or "organic" (I forget which) warhead type which does 0% dmg to anything except infantry, so the truck would no longer react to being shot.

The ricochet or "Explosion" that any weapon uses when it hits the ground is done by warhead. The Commando sniper rifle uses the organic warhead that dosen't do damage to any armored unit and has no ricochet or "Explosion" attached to it as the organic warhead is also used by the Dog Bite and Medic heal. You should be able to find a money crate around the map for Allied/GDI 3.

"Super" is for superweapons (originally made for the ion cannon in C&C1). It does 100% to everything. Organic is the one used for the dog, and in C&C1 for the blossom tree's spray. That one only hurts "organic" beings, aka, armour level 0.

In TD the Commando sniper rifle used HollowPoint and did 100% damage to infantry, %8 damage to wood, light armor, heavy armor and %0 to concrete. With Red Dawn I need the HollowPoint warhead for the Ion Cannon. I had to do this as I needed the HollowPoint warhead to "play" the Ion Cannon strike.

 

Each warhead can "play" 1 of 7 types of "Explosion" (0=none, 1=piff (single bullet hitting the ground), 2=piffs (many bullet hitting the ground), 3=fire (flamethower), 4=frags (armor piercing tank fire), 5=pops (grenade and and other high explosive), 6=nuke (plays nuke animation and damage all units with in 6 squares of center).

 

In Red Dawn 1=piff now plays the piffs animation of many bullet hitting the ground and the piffs is used for the the Ion Cannon strike. Now with the HollowPoint warhead only being used by the Ion Cannon (Spy Plane) I had to change the Commando sniper rifle to Organic that only hurt infantry or change it to SA (small arms fire) but SA would make the Commando realy over powered as SA (small arms fire) dose 100 damage to infantry,50% damage to wood,56% damage to light armor,25% damage to heavy armor,25% damage to concrete.

 

With SA (small arms fire) warhead being to strong for Commando I had to change the warhead to Organic and edit any missions that the Commando (Tanya) had to shoot a vehicle.

Do you actually use SUPER for anything? I don't think RA actually uses that; the nuke uses Fire.

SUPER is used for Obelisk Laser (Red Dawn)/Tesla coil zap (stock RA1) and it is used for the Spy Plane camera in RA1. The Spy Plane camera is also used by reveal around waypoint (this is not the same as the Drop Zone flare reveal).

 

Nuke uses it own warhead ([Nuke]). It is the same as fire but for it has the has the nuke animation attached to it.

Ahh right. Ion cannon and Laser use it. I forgot about that one.

 

But, um, warheads don't have animations (except the infantry death stuff). They're just damage balancing.

 

(I tried to make a separate Nuke warhead in C&C, but unfortunately the "this warhead sets stuff on fire" logic is hardcoded on ID #3 all throughout the game :S)

In RA1 each warhead has a have a "Explosion" attached to it and it wil play it when the weapon hits the ground, unit and/or building.

 

; Spread = damage spread factor [larger means greater spread] (def=1)

;          [A value of 1 means the damage is halved every pixel distant from center point.

;          a value of 2 means damage is halved every 2 pixels, etc.]

; Wall = Does this warhead damage concrete walls (def=no)?

; Wood = Does this warhead damage wood walls (def=no)?

; Ore = Does this warhead destroy ore (def=no)?

; Verses = damage value verses various armor types (as percentage of full damage)...

;          -vs- none, wood (buildings), light armor, heavy armor, concrete

; Explosion = which explosion set to use when warhead of this type impacts (def=0)

;            0=none, 1=piff, 2=piffs, 3=fire, 4=frags, 5=pops, 6=nuke

; InfDeath = which infantry death animation to use (def=0)

;            0=instant die, 1=twirl die, 2=explodes, 3=flying death, 4=burn death, 5=electro

 

; high explosive (shrapnel)

[HE]

Spread=6

Wall=yes

Wood=yes

Verses=90%,75%,60%,25%,100%

Explosion=5

InfDeath=2

Peculiar. C&C1 has that on the projectiles, as actual reference to the Animations list, which gives a lot more customization possibilities. A projectile can have any animation in the game as impact animation.

The only time I have seen that is when the max number of units or buildings hass be reached.

 

Yeah, I would have thought that but this was all of a few minutes into a Skirmish starting with zero units.  :S

What map and what skrimish? CnCNet Skrimish or RA1 Skrimish?

 

Ah there's a good question. It was a RA1 Skirmish on one of the Mega 8-Player maps. I can't remember the exact map at present and I'm at work so I can't check yet. I have saved the game, so I can check later and get back to you. Interestingly, saving the mission and exiting the game did not fix the issues, which normally fixes any similar bugs.

Likely the AI used all of the Ore/Tib from that area and forgot to back after it grows back. Its a RA1 bug.

Any chance of an update? Seems the EXE is not working anymore. Same with the one from my mod, looks like everything needs repackaged.
