Hi there, first post here :P

I have a couple of questions to ask to you all mapping gurus. First of all I must say that i am a total noob in the mapping modding Armada/Legacy thingie so forgive me if I ask a couple of stupid questions.

First of all what is the path thingie? I know about the Camera_1 etc stuff but is it possible to use a path to guide an AI controlled object like a ship?

Also, is it possible to change the camera distance from the ships, it seems to me that some of the ships (like the sovereign) has the camera too close to the ship.

What i plan to do is some sort of cinematic using the legacy engine and ships, like a machinima, so i need to make the AI to "drive" the ships in a certain path and capture the screen with something like fraps.

Thank you very much for your help :P

You can "drive" the ships with the paths if you have a script tool..but we do not have one. And you can change the radius in the odf file! But I would suggest to use the free cam and move it with a controller! If you want the ships to move on a path it should be possible to modify some maps from the stock missions and change the ships an paths! The paths also controll the camera in the intro vids you can see if you start the stock missions!
