I am not so good with splits I know it splits but what else.please.

Trying to make plane to fire in nearly a straight line is very hard or even a ground unit with homing missile weapon. It is somewhat a little curve.

Homing missiles try to first fly to their notional cruising altitude before trying to home in on the target. You can see the Guardian GI rocket climb up, fly level a bit, and then aim back down to the target. If the missile is launched from above the cruise altitude, it does the same thing, giving you at best an S-curve trajectory... it will never fly straight to taget unless ROT=1, but then it will also likely miss.

So what's the goal here exactly, do you want the dropping effect before the missile shoots off, or do you want a straight path to target?

I have seen a person doing exactly this in this forum before but I can find it no longer. Anyway I am trying this because all planes are working in the same way firing a missile when almost on top unless I am using a missile with ROT=1 the missile will deploy and run into target which mimic the missile drop quite really good. I am just trying to get over the boundary to make something new.

Code:

[BombToGroundMissile]
Arm=2
Shadow=no
Proximity=no
Ranged=yes
AA=no
AG=yes
Image=ZBOMB
ROT=1
SubjectToCliffs=no
SubjectToElevation=no
SubjectToWalls=no

The only working splits demo I've seen was with a projectile dropped into the water to become a torpedo after. I don't know if there's a way to control where it splits exactly.

But if variety is what you're after, you can make twinned missile voxels, shorter than what I have here, used with the ROT=1 weapons, and it will appear to be a barrage from both sides of the aircraft.

You can also experiment with tumbling bombs, take away the line trails and with a lower speed, just let them fall into the target.

1. Make weapon that falls down when fired
2. Use DetonationAltitude= to make it detonate below the plane
3. Use Splits= to spawn a new homing weapon.
4. profit...

Thank you, this is very interesting.
