I'm having a problem modding the TIE Droid into my game. I've downloaded a few mods that have the model, script, etc. in them already, but out of the four different models only the one provided in "a galaxy divided" will even show up ingame. The problem is that though the Droids render, they won't fire their weapons.
Experimenting, I copied the Tie fighter code, gave it a unit name of "Tie_Droid" and low and behold, that worked fine until I went back into that entry and told it to refer to the tie droid alo file, where, again, the fighters fly around, but don't shoot.
As for the other ALO files, well, whenever I use them the unit is technically there, but the model won't render. So all I have to look at on screen is a handful of green circles that outline where my shiny tie Droids are supposed to be :(
I can't understand why this is happening. I can see the models in the alo viewer. And I'm almost 100% positive that the scripts are fine.
Has anyone ever heard of this kind of thing happening before?
Try turning the scale factor up. And make sure the projectile entry is correct.
yea make shure there is even a projectile for it rofl, well good luck!
Allright, since last time I have copied the script I have for my TIE Interceptor (which I know works) and that worked fine until I changed the model to the tie droid. When I did that, the fighters refused to fire, but at least they were there.
Then I changed the model to the awing alo that comes with the game, and they just flew around without shooting.
So I'm guessing that it is a scripting issue after all, but I can't for the life of me figure out what it is. :/
The only thing I can guess is that maybe there is something that I need to put into the script for the game to recognize the proper bones in my model to fire from?
Still, that wouldn't explain why the game will only load some models and not others....
Can any of you folks spot a problem?
TIEDROID.ALO has the following bones
Root, objHULL_LOD1, objHULL_LOD0, CollisionBox, Bone01, Bone02
And here's the script I'm using atm:

thats the problem!!!!! the tie droid is WAAAAAYYYYY to big. scale factor should be at least 0.5
I'm not good at coding things but yea, that is waaaay to big.
yea, ure probably just seeing through it. if not, your model name might be wrong.
I've scaled the model back down to 0.5, but I'm still unable to get them to shoot.
EDIT, perhaps I should clarify: I only bumped the scale up so much after reading Captain_Needa's suggestion.
but you can see them? maybe the muzzle's are wrong.
I can see this model, yes. I've never had a problem seeing TIEDROID.ALO, but I have three other Tie droid models that will not appear ingame.
Anyway, how would I go about checking if the muzzle is correct or not?
