[Documentation] New Targeting Options for the PSI Amp
« on: February 04, 2020, 10:41:30 pm »
Hi there,
a new OXCE feature has been merged and will become available in future builds: New targeting options for the PSI Amp.

You can now define which factions can be targeted with the PSI Amp.

An example looks like this:
# 1 = player, 2 = hostile, 4 = neutral

Code: [Select]
items:
  - type: STR_FRIENLDY_FIRE_PSI_AMP
    psiTargetMatrix: 1    # 1= player faction only, defaults to 6 (hostile + neutral)

This would define a PSI Amp which can target only allied units. You can disallow targeting of your own or other factions explicitly with this.

Note: mind-control on friendly units is not possible, hardcoded. Other actions (panic, use) are possible.

Update:

`psiTargetMatrix` has been renamed to `targetMatrix` in OXCE v6.7.1
