Thank you very much Resin now my "Universal Colossus" has a real specific weapon. :)

PS: didn't really needed to be a scripter or a coder to implement it, was pretty easy. Only remark some of the thrown units explosions are really big (ie the 4D Heavy Tank bot unit) but I can live with it.


The overall scripting may look simple but it took allot of effort to get it to that point. Remember, part of a scripter's job is to make the tools created easy for everyone to use.

Hem, what I was saying is that just by copy/paste I succeeded in implementing this in my mod not that what you accomplished was easy to do ;)

Since I'm not a scripter the overall scripting just looks martian to me. :D

I'm just happy you did it cause I needed it for the Colossus I ported from SC2 and still happy that it was easy to copy/paste in my mod. :)

I also implemented your other improvements (wall fix, hover bomber, cybran acu laser and aeon ships fix...). What you do with and for this game keeps amazing me and I'm happy to implement it in my LAN mod. Thanks again for all the fun you bring. 8-)

Hey Dom... You still around? I'd like to get back into modding again once my fiber connection is setup and working.

You know it would be possible to add the unit throw ability to the GC as an enhancemnent if folks would / could accept this for inclusion into FAF.

Comments anyone ?

This seems cool, maybe also redo the way units are pulled towards the colossus? Attach a projectile and target / home the claw to get a more natural movement, right now they use a slider, right?

Overall we could use more people helping out with FAF-code so you're welcome to contribute. Clone this repo and start working :)

Projectiles would not work so well... Think about how this would work with the CG in motion if a projectile was to travel (with unit attached) back to the GC. Odds are that it would overshoot the GC, looking very bad. At least with a slider, the units are drawn to the GC's arms no matter their position or motion.

BTW my script uses a slider to drawn in the target unit (thus completing the weapons charge cycle), finds a new target and then fires the attached unit via a projectile.

The claws simply have to be redone, and I think a projectile would be better as long as the homing is good enough. It needs to be overhauled A: To get rid of errors when the unit tries to claw too many things at once, B: To stop the claws flinging units behind themselves, and C: To get rid of the attack-move order spam exploit which causes a much higher ROF than intended (Sucks up two units each tick).

Yeah projectiles would have trouble with a turning colossus. But you could say the same thing with the current sliders, it looks really silly when the colossus is turning - seems like they are hard-attached to a pole then.
