This uses the units sucked in as projectiles.... they are not randomly thrown.
Example: a unit tractored in will be fired towards another unit to do damage.

I've updated the first post with an updated video.
Please keep in mind that i am using an improved version from what i had last night.
I now have the projectiles doing the full amount of damage where as before this wasnt possible.

Will upload the new version soon.

Noticed a bug...

Code: Select all
WARNING: Error running lua script: ...nce\gamedata\mohodata.scd\lua\sim\defaultweapons.lua(724): Game object has been destroyed
         stack traceback:
            [C]: in function `SetBusy'
            ...nce\gamedata\mohodata.scd\lua\sim\defaultweapons.lua(724): in function <...nce\gamedata\mohodata.scd\lua\sim\defaultweapons.lua:723>


This comes from units that use rotating barrels but otherwise is harmless. I'll correct this when i get ready to do the FAF integration. Beyond this minor issue the script is solid.

Today I made a ton of improvements to the performance of this units weapons without altering the core stats. Most weapon issues were due to the poor setup of the units firing arc's. By reducing the arc's slightly the GC can better handle close encounters with large number of small units. The best explanation I provide for this is that the weapons are slaved to the units body / mesh within a fixed set of degrees of fire. The weapons total yaw was set greater than the arc of fire so often a weapon would track a target a target beyond it's firing arc in the hope that the target would come back into range later. Obviously this means that this weapon isn't attacking anything while it's tracking the single. By correcting the arcs the weapons are less likely to get fixated on a target and more likely to damage what you want.

Please note that I've included the latest version on the first post of this thread.
