Anyone know if it's possible to create multiple build commandsets for the porters like in Generals with the GLA Worker? If so, a little info would be nice. Haven't been able to find any other references other than the fortress buildsets.
I'm not sure fully what you mean but think you mean building more than one thing at once right? If you are then unfortunately yo can't as the porter controls the buildings, if you have 5 porters you can build five things at once, the problem where you couldn't find it was most probably was due to EA not wanting the same thing to happen as in CnC Generals. They most probably did not put that info in the ini.big file so you had to rely on porters to build it by themselves.
No, not building more tha one building at a time, but adding more build slots to the porter's build list. In the .ini file, they are limited to how many commands that are in the commandset. In Generals, the GLA worker had a fake commandset and a real commandset, allowing you to build even more buildings.
Here is the AmericaDozer in Generals with this type of upgrade.
CommandSet AmericaDozerCommandSet 1 = Command_ConstructAmericaPowerPlant 2 = Command_ConstructAmericaStrategyCenter 3 = Command_ConstructAmericaBarracks 4 = Command_ConstructAmericaSupplyDropZone 5 = Command_ConstructAmericaSupplyCenter 6 = Command_ConstructAmericaParticleCannonUplink 7 = Command_ConstructAmericaCommandCenter 8 = Command_ConstructAmericaWarFactory 9 = Command_ConstructAmericaAirfield 10 = Command_ConstructAmericaBigAirfield 11 = Command_UpgradeAmericaDozerFakeCommandSet 14 = Command_DisarmMinesAtPosition End
CommandSet AmericaDozerFakeBuildingsCommandSet 1 = Command_ConstructAmericaTurret 2 = Command_ConstructAmericaFireBase 3 = Command_ConstructAmericaPatriotBattery 4 = Command_ConstructAmericaTomahawkPatriotBattery 5 = Command_ConstructAmericaVulcanCannon 6 = Command_ConstructAmericaBunker 14 = Command_UpgradeAmericaDozerRealCommandSet End
Oh I see what you mean yes, I think it can be done quite easily bu just simply adding them in from different factions with following numbers for example: 1= Command_ConstructBarracks 2= Command_ConstructElvenBarracks That was just an example but is that what you mean? adding more building to your porter like if your motw you can have elven structures to build?
Yes, that's what I'm looking for. But you are limited to the number of buildings you can build in one commandset. So what I am wondering is if you can expand upon the Porter commandset like on the fortress, with multiple commandsets.
Ah, I understand now, hmm, I think its possible, I think maybe you could say both in one commandset and see what happens:
1= Command_ConstructBarracksCommand_ConstructElvenBarracks Or something along those lines, somethings gotta happen.
