Terra_Inc;5146534 When this tool is done, the Modder's Toolbox will be complete. Then, the whole stuff will be uploaded to A2files as a pack. This will probably happen next month... It's likely that it will be released during the first three weeks, so you could already be playing around with it on Christmas Day.

Hey, a christmas present for the community. That's nice. =p

I'll be looking forward to it.

Update.

The Battle Calc GUI is done. Take a look:

I realised that having only eight possible weapons was not enough. Every unit can now have 12 weapons.

Because the Battle Calc is the Output Calc's big brother, I also added four optional weapons to it. Here's a pic of the new GUI...

... and the reworked Output Calc in action, calculating the weapon output of a Galaxy from AoW:

I'll finish the Battle Calc coding next week. Then, the Toolbox is almost finished.

The last phase will be a beta test. Any takers? :naughty:

More pre-release information coming soon. Stay tuned.

Count me in for beta-test-- these will be hugely useful for game balance.

I think that there is a way to do this, although I don't know how. Somewhere here I've read a post on how to make beams emit light... don't remember the thread, though. Concerning the Color Calc... care for a beta version? :naughty:

Update!

The Battle Calc has been completed. Take a look at the latest shot:

The Battle Calc, calculating the result of a battle between a stock Defiant and a stock BoP. You can see that the Defiant was destroyed after 30 seconds, but the shields of the BoP were also killed, meaning that a second Defiant would probably destroy the weakened BoP.

The Beta Testers have received an eMail containing the beta version of the Toolbox.

When the Beta Phase is finished I will upload the Toolbox to A2files. It looks like I can keep my promise - it'll be up before Christmas Day. =p
