2 Questions

I know my first question has been asked before but I can't seem to find it in Search. Basically I have two questions; how can I make it so unit's speed movement changes when climbing/running up a hill and how can I make a unit fire while moving, such as a "tank."

Now for my first question, is this possible? I want to change unit speeds when units are running up or down cliffs or what not. If a unit is on a flat area with a speed of say 250, and when the unit starts running up a higher level area, can the speed of the unit change to say 200? Is this possible? And if so, to make it more "real," how can I make it so the higher the level, the slower the unit gets? Please help on this one.

<> If I have to use triggers for changing the unit speeds, then forget it. I know I can use triggers but I don't need/want a lot of triggers for this.

My second question is a simple one. I have a tank that shoots without moving; the simple way. But I want to have an upgrade for the unit so that the tank can move and fire. Any suggestions?

Make a region.

Code:
Events
A unit enters region blah <gen>
Conditions
Unit type of entering unit == tank
Actions
Unit - Set movement speed of entering unit to 55.
Edit: I'm not sure there is another way apart from triggers, only just read that bit in your post sorry.

You can change this now in User CP.
You could add Phoenix Fire to the tank, and disable it's normal attack.

I could in the end, if it is the only way, do triggers I guess. This was the initial trigger I had, however when thinking about it, the trigger won't know wether the unit is going UP the cliff or DOWN the cliff. If the unit is going up, I would want the unit's speed to decrease while if the unit was going down I would want the unit's speed to increase. Hmmm...

Yup, only thing is is that I want to make my map as RoC as possible. In the end, I am converting my map to RoC but I can't use any pure Frozen Throne abilities/units/etc...

  • No one is chatting at the moment.
  • Varine Varine:
    Eh, whatever. Thanks for listening guys
  • jonas jonas:
    Sure :) Let us know how it ends
  • Varine Varine:
    All of these things will end happily, they're just stressful. And I still lack many good friends that I can go to, and the ones I can are preoccupied with similar things. Thus general chit chat, cuz for some reason TH and Ghan and Tom all actively keep it up.
  • Varine Varine:
    Just gotta keep Miss Mazie up through the week until her shock wears off and she realizes that she still has family all around her, and bossman will do whatever he's going to do and I'll respond appropriately when it happens. Thank you all for the support, I do very much appreciate everyone being here for me through the years

    Best of luck Varine!

    I just gotten myself an offer to work in China. The pay quadruples my current one. Damn.... Not really ready to start a new life there in China.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I have heard that they pay pretty good to English teachers in China - you would be an expat
  • jonas jonas:
    Cool, what kind of job?
  • Accname Accname:
    I would be careful with jobs in China. They can be hit and miss depending on where in China you go. Places like hong kong / Shengzen / Beijing can be neat. Other places not so much.
  • Accname Accname:
    I would recommend searching for some first person experiences for the city you got the offer in. Especially now when the political situation in China is deteriorating.
  • jonas jonas:
    Accname, long time no see
  • jonas jonas:
    What have you been up to
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Hey Accname, welcome back.
  • Accname Accname:
    Not much. Working in the Renewable Energy Sector as an IT Consultant. Its okay, but I think I preferred working at the university. It was more relaxed and you met all kinds of crazy people there.
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    I gotten a teaching position for Biology in a college in Wuhan (yes, there)... I suppose it should be fine there (I hope). Many of my ex colleagues are teaching in China as well currently (none in Wuhan though)
  • vypur85 vypur85:
    And I signed the contract already. I guess there's no turning back....
  • jonas jonas:
    @Accname how many hours do you work? I heard in some sectors IT consultants rack up insane hours
  • jonas jonas:
    @vypur85 sounds nice, have fun : )
  • Accname Accname:
    I am supposed to work 40 hrs a week, but I can work more if I like and I will be paid for those hours (as long as I don't go too far, there are laws and company policies, etc)
  • Accname Accname:
    In practice its basically work as much as you like, as long as the job gets done in time.
  • jonas jonas:
    Haha, my job is like that as well... that usually means I have a few 70-80 hours weeks a year, and lots of 20 hours weeks...
  • jonas jonas:
    a few weeks ago, one of my friends basically said "jonas, I received an invitation to submit something to conference X but I'm too lazy to do it and also the conference isn't advanced enough for my high level of research*, why don't you write something? Oh by the way, the deadline is in two weeks. Enjoy!" so I got two 80 hour weeks out of that kind offer. (*of course he didn't say those parts, but it's a better story this way)
  • jonas jonas:
    now I'll have next week off to make up for overtime :p and I'll play some good old gothic 2
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Hope you are enjoying that gothic 2~
  • jonas jonas:
    Heck yeah :cool: It's unfortunate that the game series wasn't generally well received outside of Europe, but it seems they want to remake Gothic 1 now. I'm very excited but also very scared at the same time. I hope they won't pull a reforged
