I am currently working on a flightsystem but got a problem when the plane flies gets to a cliff. As you may have noticed when a flying unit gets close to a cliff it flies higher up in the air which makes my flightsystem look unsmooth.

When I search here on thw for a solution I only found solutions in jass unfortunately :(. Now my question to you if this can be solved with as much gui as possible.

Yes you can do loops on my flightsystem ;)
You could check for terrain height and reduce the plane's height accordingly.
Every 0.10 seconds

Set Plane = Unit
Set PointA = Position of Plane
Set PointB = PointA offset by 50 towards Facing of Plane
If Integer (Environment Cliff Height at PointB) is Greater than (Environment Cliff Height at PointA)

Here you can do one of the following:
To change the height in such a way that the plane moves smoothly:
Set Flying Height of Plane: (Flying Height of Plane+(125*((Environment Cliff Height at PointB)-(Environment Cliff Height at PointA))))

To force back the plane in a way that bumping into a cliff won't allow you to move over it:
Move Plane instantly to PointA
Well thanks for the replies though i solved my problem by myself and som googling

heres my solution if you're wondering. This works for both cliffs and raise terrain.

Custom script: set udg_Tempreal[4] = GetLocationZ(udg_Temppoint[1])
If (All Conditions are True) then do (Then Actions) else do (Else Actions)
If - Conditions
Flight_Terrainheight_real[(Integer A)] Not equal to Tempreal[4]
Then - Actions
Set Tempreal[5] = (Flight_Terrainheight_real[(Integer A)] - Tempreal[4])
Set Flight_Terrainheight_real[(Integer A)] = Tempreal[4]
Animation - Change Flight_Flyingunit[(Integer A)] flying height to (((Current flying height of Flight_Flyingunit[(Integer A)]) + Tempreal[5]) + 0.00) at 0.00
Else - Actions

    See how we like that.

    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example:

    I will have to get used to this.

    The latest news feed looks good
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...

    I'm not so sure, there's still a lot of Thursday left for it to become unhappy.
  • The Helper The Helper:
