New Features for POF Version 3000 [FS2 = Version 2117]
I plan on adding

Objects that move upon script = ie
When
---fires(Turret01, -5) //five seconds before Turret01 files
------Move(Object, x, y, z); //where X,Y,Z are replaced wiht correct values

or
When
---Launces(FighterBay01, -10) //ten seconds before fighters are launched from FighterBay01
-----Move(DoorRight, -200, 0, 0):
-----Move(DoorLeft, 200, 0, 0); // that would make the two door objects open [Hey IceFire! FS2:TBP could use this :D]


Hull Lights [ie running lights like in IWar2]

That will require 2 new chunks

MVRS or "Movers"
LGHT or "Lights"

who else has suggestions

How about support for trails? (For TAP)
And something....I forget what it was, but something for MODabilaty, especially for the Robotech MOD...
Oh, yea, not sure if this is what you mean in your last post, but how about animations that, stay (as in-fighter to gerwalk-to battloid, and back again)?
Also, more ability to be MODed, and how about a feature for a cockpit (you can turn this on or off, if you want), rather than just the bland HUD of FS2....
Cheers!

He means engine trails, like in Homeworld. Fighters and Corvettes leave long colorful ion trails. Only way to make em work would be to make the mission in an invisible nebula, and that means no backgrounds. Too much work for a useless effect.

Explosion orders so the ship blows up in a certain way.

Although that could be mission specific I suppose.

EDIT: Shockwave points. It'd make sense for missile bays to give off their own shockwaves as well as the reactors.

Thorn: OH! understood... we'll have to think about putting that in a new chunk or the existing engines chunk [perhaps the wash zone can be the ion trail.. makes sense to me]

Warning: Post is programmer oriented
struct POFString
{
     int size; //32-bit
     char *str; //exactly size chars long - no null terminator
}

Chunk MVRS or "Movers"
struct MVRS
{
     int nummvrs
     vector scripts;
}


Chunk LGHT or "Lights"
struct POFRGBA
{
   char Red, Green, Blue, Ambience'
}

struct POFRunLight
{
   POFString name;
   POFRGBA color;
   vector location; //it's a set of floats (x,, y, z)
}
struct LGHT
{
   int numlights;
   POFRunLight* lights;
}


//------

It should be noted in the POF CS sources I have a naming conflict between std::vector and vector - which wasn't a problem because I was using apvector and apstring

soon im going to rename vector to vector3d, updating all the source files, POFString is called 'string' in the POF CS sources and it'll be renamed POFString
all instances of apvector will become std::vector and all instances of apstring will become std::string

Yea, I was talking about, well, you know, for it to be able to have a program chunk, and in FRED2000, you put in the command line in the events editor:
-When mission starts
-Enable Trails

or simply:
-Enable Trails.....

Better beam controls.

This running lights idea..will they just be blobs or will you be able to use texture maps as a base (I.E, a glowing Lilith?)

glowing textures will be part of the new texturing pipeline

a lot of that could be added into the txtr chunk

mmh, only thing I'd really like, I think, are those animated parts (already discussed), but, mainly, ani as textures on ships. Now that I could have a great use of ;7


edit: for the trails, the simplest way would be to force FS2 to display them out of nebs. Ok, I don't know what I'm talking about, I'm most likely saying crap.

specular materials.  (hull metals shine)

oh and kaz, shouldn't POFRGBA:

Code: [Select]

Chunk LGHT or "Lights"
struct POFRGBA
{
char Red, Green, Blue, Ambience;
}


use unsigned chars (0-255) instead of signed ones(-128-127)?

Oooh, all the POF's should be able to hold people debris that trigger something in the code that makes them wiggle and explode in a special, big, red plume.

lol :D

The pof should hold the species, not the tbl. so you can give it the thruster colour you want, regardless of the species.
:rolleyes: ok, it's absolutly not what I meant.
Let's try again:
we should be able to choose the colour of the thruster, in fact, the colour should be hnadled like any other map, so if someone wants to map its thrusters with purple and orange flames, even if he has dull tastes, he could.
