just wondering if there is any way to use the tractor beam when playing skirmish mode? I try to engage it and all it does is make an impact on the shields and i can here the sfx.
just need to know if there is an odf that needs to be changed or something.
*note* I'm using the AA mod if that has anything to do with it..
I didn't make it!
easytractortarget = 1
Add "easytractortarget = 1" to all ship odfs that you want to use the tractorbeam on. Or try putting it in the craft.odf and it "might" filter down to every ship or nearly every ship, it all depends on how the ship odfs are structured. There are negative consequences to using it, atleast for the enemy. It basically destroys their engines for good. Like a 1 hit engine disable weapon. That's why it's disabled by default.
The AI believes the engines are destroyed so it no longer moves or turns, a player can still directly control a ship in this condition, but as soon as you switch ships it stops moving again.
Ok thanks. I did as you said and now it works.
