Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Does it have to be via the event editor? You can set any ship to have lateral thrust just by setting $Max Velocity appropriately. Diaspora & Wings of Dawn used this, including getting the AI to circle strafe.  If it's an ability to be triggered you could switch between two ship classes, one with strafe and one without.

Well, I've set the various max velocities but I still need a key to press or hold actually make the ship strafe. As far as I can tell there's no key that causes a craft to move sideways, only forwards. I should also point out that I am not trying to get the craft to Glide (keep moving straight but circle in place which is already in the game), I need them to actually move left or right and not forwards.

They're there. In fact left and right thrust are bound by default to shift-1 and shift-3, respectively (up is shift-numpadplus and down is shift-numpadenter).

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

I think he's looking for "increase left/right thrust by X" or "set left/right thrust to X" kind of keys.

I never knew that was a feature in Freespace. I guess I learn something new every day. That's the exact feature I was going for!


I guess I might as well show screenshots of things:

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Hmmm, it seems no matter how high I set the X axis for max velocities or Slide acceleration, the speed I can strafe is somehow always extremely slow. Is there something else I'm missing in order to increase the speed I can circle strafe? At this rate I'm hit by every shot and missile because strafing is too slow and that sort of defeats the purpose.  :lol:

Nevermind, setting the Slide acceleration to 0 solves the problem.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Well I got a question, is there a way to make an animation that repeatedly plays any time the player is not using their afterburner? I'd like to have wings constantly flapping as the player just moves around. Is there also a trigger condition for strafing? I'd like wings to flap faster as the player strafes left and right.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Ehhh, I guess I'll just have to deal with no flappy wings for now.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Is there a way scripting could double the animation rate?

I imagine flapping wings could be done through scripting, but I've yet to figure out how.

 
Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Scooby_Doo tried to do some animations through scripting a little while ago, maybe this could be of interest.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
I messed with scripting a little bit, but I've had no luck getting flapping wing animations. I'll probably just abandon the creature as being playable.
