I thought I figured out how abilities work. I tried to create a complete new one but I failed. Does anyone knows how they work and can post it here. Help is greatly appreciated
Can you post the code?
You can't create a completely new ability, abilities are hardcoded. However, you can edit existing abilities to an extent where they can appear to be a brand new ability.
what is hardcoded??
CloneWarsFreak;4938087what is hardcoded??
That means the thing isn't "modifiable" or close to impossible ;)
Abilities are very flexible though, I turned the bribe ability into a kind of boarding ability for shuttles when they get to a certain range. I also used the fog of war reveal ability from the scout to make it sort of a mine laying ability, but its still buggy.
Its very fun to mess around with, and im guessing this is the only way to make new abilities.
could you post that? that would be kind of cool
sure, i could pm it to you as we are kind of off topic now =p
Not really because i created this thread to have ppl talk about how to create abilities. If there is a way to create them even if you streach the code of exsiting ones its still a way. I just have to say hardcoding is not impossible but its difficult and difficult is seen from many members of this community as the same as impossible but doesnt petroglyph shows us with the changes between eaw and foc that nothing is impossible? Im trying to learn hardcoding but until I can use it in eaw it will take a lot of time but im confident
Yes but Petro had a full staff of trained programmers and a lot of resorses. Not saying what you propose is impossible but instead of making a new thing(as Perto would do) you'll have to do some heavy twicking with what you've got. Unless of coarse you have same programs Petro would have.=p:);)
