Re: Need help creating custom trait

The working solution is: [event] name=side turn first_time_only=no [store_unit] variable=light_burns [filter] [filter_wml] # Uncomment the modifications lines if you use a modification when creating the unit instead of defining the trait in the unit cfg file. # [modifications] [trait] id=photosensit...

Re: Scenario story menu? Is this possible?

I think he means he wants the player to be able to decide their course on the world map and based on their choice they would follow a different route and play one of two or more possible scenarios.

Re: Invasion from the Unknown

I haven't finished the campaign yet but I have to say so far I really like it. I'm into about the fourth mission of the first episode. The only complaints I have is that some units don't have a defense frame set so they "disappear" when they get attacked. I could just set the unit image to be the de...

Re: Need help creating custom trait

Other problems: 1. the event should be side turn, not side_turn 2. photosensitive is a trait, not an ability. ((Edit: Er... actually, you were using an ability. I got confused because of the name of the thread. Still, I think that having it as a trait is more appropriate. If you want to keep in an ...

Re: Need help creating custom trait

For some reason I can't figure out, it still doesn't do anything. The ability doesn't launch with the filters, and without them it only "works" for the leader unit, which starts on the map. For some reason recruited units with the ability aren't affected by it.

Re: changing all terrain hexes a unit passes over

That's a shame, cause it sounds like a really interesting idea.

Re: Need help creating custom trait

I don't know why, but it still doesn't work. For some reason, it seems like I can only get the ability to do nothing, or it works but ignores terrain and time of day. Does it matter that I'm testing this with 2p MP against the AI? I've also noticed that even though it's in the recruit list, the comp...

Re: Need help creating custom trait

Still doesn't work but at least I'm getting closer: I finally figured out to make the ability trigger. Only problem is, it ignores terrain and time of day and triggers twice, once at the beginning and end of a turn. # wmllint: unbalanced-on #define ABILITY_PHOTOSENSITIVE # Unit will burn in direct s...

Re: Need help creating custom trait

Thanks, I'm actually working on it now. I tried using a modified version of the "feeds" ability, and the good news is that the game doesn't crash. The bad news is that the ability shows up and has a working description, but doesn't do anything. Here's what I've brainstormed so far: # wmllint: unbala...

Need help creating custom trait

I want to create a unit specific trait that is dependent on both time of day and the terrain the unit is on. At the beginning of every turn where the unit is not stationed in a village or on Keep/Castle terrain, it loses a set amount of hit points, except for if time of day is Dusk or Night. I also ...
