Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
- Handle multi-part enemies like in SF itself. Your fight with Granga looked nothing like a Star Fox boss-fight. He lost Hull Integrity regardless of whether or not you destroyed the barrier-blades, and you never actually shot at each blade, only at the core. It needs the whole weak-spot mechanic of Star Fox bosses and mini-bosses. I'm pretty sure that this is supported in FSO, where you can make the ship immune to damage but the hardpoints damageable.
I would like this if I could figure out how to get it to work.

Armor.tbl is your friend here - you can change subsystem and hull and shield armor types independently from each other. There is a SEXP which allows you to make changes in mission, e.g. drop the hull armor to lower value if a subsystem is destroyed.

EDIT: There is a possibility to do this old-school with the ship-guardian-threshold SEXP too

We have returned to continue our purification of this galaxy. It is again your turn to be crushed beneath the great force that is the Antaran army. All your petty squabbling with the other beings in this galaxy is meaningless. The Antaran fleet will destroy you all, one by one. You may not surrender. You cannot win. Your only option is death.

Hand-written badges are best badges.


Anyway, congrats to UndyingNephalim on the shiny new forum. :)

Alrighty this is awesome. I guess I need to figure out what other threads I want to make. I feel like I'll still just end up posting all the new stuff in this thread.  :lol:

Well compared with other projects that create several pages of year old threads before dying and not releasing anything this here was productive in the best way.

I'm sure I'll think of something. When I finish updating all the playable craft and weapons I'll make a thread for them.

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
If it has homing primaries it's probably not the way to go; it could be scripted though.

Before this gets lost, is this done in the same way that secondaries home in on targets?

 
Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
I thought you already had a way to make homing primarys?

I was under the impression homing primaries was not possible. The wiki even says it only works for Secondaries.

 
Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
It depends on what you're looking for. First of all, it is correct that homing on primary weapons doesn't work. The second is- you can work around that to a degree. You can make a primary that explodes immediatly after being fired, spawns a secondary that has a heat seeker (you can't use any Aspect or the like).

But from viewing your gameplay vids (I have 0 idea about SF besides that) I presume the way you did it is better than any fiddling around.
