Building templates

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)

you will have to look for hotbuild on forums, mod vault unable to display some mods, cause there are no actual search function implemented

you should also get GAZ UI mod, so you don't need make the same Template for every faction...

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.

Thanks for the reply r_charger, I use hot build so that explains my problem.
