Help / AI unit immune to zombification?
« on: April 24, 2024, 12:16:08 am »
Are AI units (both civilian and hostile) hardcoded immune to zombification?
Tried to I explicitly define
Code: [Select]
zombiImmune: false, but still immune.
What am I missing?

edit: hostile only. civilian are zombified as expected

Help / accuracy % on fire cursor
« on: April 09, 2024, 10:47:55 pm »
In my mod I use UFOExtender accuracy because I want to display the accuracy % on fire cursor.
It removes the need to reopen the shooting menu to check current accuracy.
Is helps the player understand when trying to shoot a out-of-LoS target (accuracy is halved).

However I'm not interested in the actual features of UFOExtender accuracy (range-based accuracy and all that).
As a result, I have to set to all firearms:
Code: [Select]
aimRange: 999
snapRange: 999
autoRange: 999

It is absolutely not a big deal! (in fact, I'm already doing it), but I wonder if there is a simpler way to activate the % on firing cursor.

OXCE Bugs FIXED / [FIXED] Vanilla civllians spawning, why? [OXC]
« on: February 19, 2023, 10:14:23 am »
Vanilla civilians are spawning but they should not.

Could it be because there aren't enough civilian spawn points on the map, so to fill the "16" quota it spawns regular civilians?

    mapDataSets: *mapDataSetsWarehouse
    civilians: 16

Help / [SOLVED] Globe marker UFO icon not working correctly
« on: January 07, 2023, 03:11:05 pm »
I customized the globe markers because I needed extra icons.

  - delete: GlobeMarkers
  - type: GlobeMarkers
    width: 91
    height: 7
    subX: 7
    subY: 7
      0: Resources/apoc/geo/GlobeMarkers.png

The classic UFO icon (the third from the left) flashes red/cyan instead of red/dark-red.
The color is the correct one (see attachment).

Help pls.

Help / globe textue negative id?
« on: December 11, 2022, 01:13:55 pm »
I don't understand the logic of the negative id texture.

Positive id is straightforward:
 - each id corresponds to a texture, in sequence as they appear in the graphic file.
 - each texture is linked to one or more terrains (which make sense).

But in case of negative id:
 - each id corresponds to what? Is it arbitrary?
 - each "texture" is linked to one or more alienDeployment instead of a terrain. However the deployment can define the terrain itself so: can I skip defining negative id textures altogether?

Likely I'm losing myself in a glass of water.

Open Feedback / wrong position for personal armor arms?
« on: August 28, 2022, 08:18:53 pm »
Purple is vanilla personal armor, red is vanilla coveralls (recolored).
The arms for the south walking animation (weaponless) seems inverted.
I checked the power armor and it matches the coveralls position, so the personal armor is the outlier.

If frames are layered on each other to draw the whole unit, the arms (presumably of the personal armor) might be rendered in the wrong order (layer order). Because the draw routine is the same.

Unless my personal armor sheet is wrong...

Help / unit without corpse (and more)
« on: August 05, 2022, 02:45:12 pm »
I want to create a unit that leaves no corpse behind when killed.
I could make the corpse unrecoverable + use an invisible (AKA empty) floor sprite, that is not a problem.
But, is there a more straightforward way?

Bonus question: how to make a firearm with "flat" accuracy? I want to create a weapon with X% of accuracy regardless of the unit accuracy.


Help / Soldier stats menu in base glitch [SOLVED]
« on: July 23, 2022, 10:57:44 am »
Made a new menu (uses the Base palette, which seems the correct one).
Bet ingame I get some visual glitches.

  - type: BACK06.SCR
    singleImage: true
    width: 320
    height: 200
      0: Resources/apoc/BACK_SCR/BACK06_SCR.png

Any idea why?

Troubleshooting / No Audio
« on: February 27, 2022, 04:50:43 pm »
So.. suddenly I get no audio whatsoever.
I get normal audio everywhere else, only OXCE is completely silent.

I was modding and launching the OXCE several times, and I had audio.
Then I used audacity to make a new sound, and I also downloaded audio from youtube using a firefox plugin..
..and boom, no more sound.

-restarted PC.
-wiped OXCE folder and user folder.
-installed latest OXCE version (I was running an old one).

Is my computer possessed?

Edit: I also cannot enter debug mode using CTRL+D, what is going on aaahhh

OXCE Support / [Solved] spawnUnit VS overkill
« on: February 15, 2022, 12:20:04 am »
For my swarm alien I wanted to give the impression that you're thinning it out as you damage it.
So I used the spawnUnit function to create 3 "stages" (actual units) for the alien.
At the same time I want you to be able to obliterate it in one hit with fire/explosive.

I thought that overkill allowed to disintegrate units preventing them to spawn the children units.. but it doesn't seem to work: I set fire/explosive damage to 999 and the children unit is still there.

(I guess I can use just 2 stages but the 3 stages don't seem to be the issue).

So at this point I'm doubting that overkill has that prevention function at all. Does it?

Help / Double mission site on same coord
« on: October 06, 2021, 11:46:46 pm »
I'm somehow getting double mission sites (on the same coordinates).

Could it be because I set "objective:true" to the escort too? (STR_CRAFT_AIRTRANS is the actual objective-doer of the mission)?
I thought it was correct to do so, but I'm starting to doubt it.

In this example the mission sites last long enough to exist the same time. For other missions (with similar waves setup) the sites happens one after another in rapid succession.

Any idea why this happens?

Help / empty missionZone
« on: September 12, 2021, 11:25:22 pm »
how to leave an empty missionZone in a region:

        - [7...]
        - [2...]
        - []  <-- I tried this but I get an error
        - [2...]
        - [2...]
        - [1...]

if i leave a zone empty (provided it can be done), what will happen with UFO trajectories passing there?
