hi! i was making some modifications to the MADHQ seismic tank (with permission, of course) i want to animate the turret... and use the chargeturret logic(the prism tank one)... since i'm not a good grapher the best idea i could come with is try to separate the chassis, the turret and the hammer into 3 different voxels.... but i don't know if the chargeturret logic works with barrels.. so i decided to mix the turret and the hammer in a 2 section voxel.... i went to the turret file-->section--->new---->import from another voxel--->and i choose the hammer one... it looks like it works... but everytime i try to work with the HVA.... i can't see the hammer >_>

i check the bounds and there is a strange number in the hva position coordinates... i modify it but stilll cant se the hammer... i check the hva of the chassis.... i see the chassis the turret and the hammer graphic is bugged... other thing i notice is everytime i try to add a section to a vxl (not just the madhq one) i have the same error X_x

it seems like i'm forggeting to do something with the vxl file... but i don't know what

how could i fix that?

do you think a multi section turret could use the chargeturret logic?




and another problem i have.... i was trying to make an animated APC driller (with an animated drill) i edit the hva.... i add the frames... and i edit all of them... the animation seems to work fine in hva edit... but i can't see the animation in game... what could be the problem here?



thanks for your time and sorry for my english n.nU

As far as I understood, the changeturret logic works only with the turret. There are 4 steps (the original turret, and tur1, 2 and 3. The game does not necessarily plays the HVA animation of these turrets, since the HVA files from original prism tank turret voxels do not have any animation on it.

I'm not sure if this problem is fixed on 1.37 or 1.38 alpha. But I remember that I've fixed this issue a while ago.

No.

Make sure you have a code that actually triggers the animation. From what I know, TurretSpins=yes. Mechs uses SHP animations to walk and do other things, so they are an entirely different system. In you case, converting parts of the APC into an SHP might be an easier solution, so you can use its related walking animations... But I must admit that I never tried to do this, so I'm unable to help you.
