Stat Scanning
« on: March 27, 2014, 02:16:29 am »
One day (3/26/2014) I decided it would be cool to have a sort of Psi-Scanner, my idea was like a mindprobe and a motion scanner combined... it would scan the area similar to a motion scanner, but instead of motion it would display units with about 50 psi-skill. Then I started thinking about how it might actually be done... is it possible to make a scanner that can scan for certain level stats and display all nearby units with those stats?

It would totally be possible, but it would require modifying to source code; it would be more than a simple mod. I would imagine something that works and looks like the motion scanner, but instead of showing units who have moved, it shows units with psi skill. Bigger the dot, higher the skill.

If you have any experience in C++, you might be able to pull this off yourself!
