Subject description: In this case, wrecked car barricades
Reply with quote

making wrecked stuff is easy, all you need is Photoshop, a 3d program (VXSLE will do), SHP builder and a little imagination.

1.) make a 3d model of a  wrecked car.

2.) code it in-game as a startup vehicle (so that you'll be able to take screenies of it right away). OR open the VXL file in HVA builder to view it.

3.) Take screenies of it right away

4.) post the screenies in Photoshop and touch it up.

5.) copy the touched up wrecked car and paste it in SHP builder (use unittem.pal)

6.) save the SHP and code it in as a building.

Notes: In my mod, car barricades are indestructible and they effectively provide strategic advantages for infantry and Direct-Damage weapons. This is because projectile weaponry are impeded by the neutral-owned "barricades".
That means that the projectiles hit the barricades instead of flying towards the intended target whithin a specific range limit.

7.) wan le.

Very interesting - so you're using the tick-tank-can't-fire-over-walls logic to make effective barracades..

btw, even immune=yes buildings can be destroyed with units having C4=yes. So your indestructible barricades are not that indestructable. Wink (except you found an alternative for immune=yes)

There's a solution for that.

if you put BridgeRepairHut=yes then the C4 will not destroy the building. I haven't found any negative side effects of using this tag

This is very useful. Thanks IVI I never would have thought of this by myself. Smile

As for BridgeRepairHut=yes, wouldn't it repair bridges if it were near one and had a engi put into it? (who would though?)

*Goes off to make destroyed RA2 tank barricades*
