Worker Sounds

Alright well i am working on a new map, i wanted to use different units as workers such as the villager male unit.
ive tried a few different ways of creating it, i made it a completely new custom unit, i also tried to copy/paste the peasant and peons and then just changed the model for each of them. all other sounds as far as attacking and chopping wood work but i cant seem to get the repair(human) or repair ability sounds to work when trying with the villager as the worker.
im not using any custom buildings yet, just the basic human builds mainly the farm just for quick testing. in the same map i can have a regular peasant build/repair and that makes the 'hammering' sound like normal but as soon as i try it with the custom villager worker theres no sound.
i also tried using the peasant sound set for it and the villager sound set, neither of which make that sound.
i know its a simple thing but its really annoying when you notice it lol
is it the actual model the sound is attached to? i see the sounds in the sound editor under abilities so i thought it was attached to the ability but doesnt seem to work at all.

thanks in advance! xD
 
I do not know the answer for sure, but it sounds plausible, that the sound is actually attached to the animation of the peasant. That is possible and it would explain the situation you are describing. Either way, giving your cutom model an animation for the repair and attaching a sound to it will solve your problem.

yeah thats unfortunate but will give me something different and hopefully a bit of enjoyment figuring out how to make the animations with sounds haha, thanks though :)
 
just wanted to say i got the sound added to the villager animation, it was very easy took less then 10mins. thanks for the help!

    News portal has been retired. Main page of site goes to Headline News forum now
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am working on getting access to the old news portal under a different URL for those that would rather use that for news before we get a different news view.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Easily done

    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    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: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    What do you think Tom?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I will have to get used to this.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    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...
