Building templates

Postby TEA_Downside » 22 Jan 2014, 11:32

Hi all.

I will start by introducing myself, I am TEA_Downside (obviously) I played my first few games last night after watching a lot of replays over the last few days. I am part of a clan called Totally English Annihilators from total annihilation www.tea-clan.co.uk. (Unfortunately I didn't realise there had been another TEA here)

Anyway to the question, I find sometimes making mass storage around mex and making a build pattern for pgens quite time consuming at times when I could be micro-ing somewhere else, is it possible for me to create a template of these and just use a hot key to automatically place them where I select??

I look forwards to your replies.

this + hotbuild (should be in the modvault and theres a thread somewhere in the mod subforum of general discussion)
(hotbuild allows you to switch through the templates with or select any template or non-template-normal building by a specific hotkey that can be edited)

Hi,

Sorry for reviving such an old thread but my question is related. When I try to create a hot key for a build template, e.g. a ring of mass storage, nothing happens. I right click, choose assign key, press a key (must be a-z I understand) but when I press said key to recall the template with an engineer selected, nothing happens.

G works fine to flick through all templates, but I’d like specific keys for mass storage and PD.

Am I doing something wrong or could it be a technical issue?

Thanks.

Assigning templates to an individual key only works if you use build mode. It doesn't work for FAF hotbuild which most people use. You don't need a template for mass storages anyway. You just assist T2 or T3 mexes. Just make sure it's switched on in gameplay options.
