Give 'laser' to sensor tower

Hello (sunny day here!)

I did another attempt on the next thing: I tried to give the sensor tower the voidray 'laser'
But this seems a bit more complicated than I thought it would be !

I remember I tried this before and I solved it nearly, the beamer could only attack units if they were in front of the sensor tower
Can somebody make a step-by-step how I must give the sensor tower the voidray 'laser'?

note: I like to make the laser coming out of the top of the sensor tower if possible

If you almost got it working, I would use that version and just change the "Stats: Arc" of the weapon to 360. This will allow the tower to attack units that are not in front of it.

To get it to come out from the top, I think the best way would be to use site operation actors to attach it to the attachment point "overhead". I'll edit this post with further instructions about that later on.

Edit: Go to the void ray weapon's action actor(Called "Void ray attack") and open the Attachment: Launch Attachment Query + field. In it, change the Fallback dropdown to Overhead.

There still might be a weird bent beam that appears a little random. I don't really know how to get rid of it or why it appears. If you also get this, tell me and I'll see if I can figure it out. There's probably a lot more issues that I forgot about as well but start out with that and we can solve it a little bit at a time.

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
