Ok so this is a few useful things I've picked up durning my modding, not many but a few. These should help make some crazy mods.
Explotrails - I found this one by generaly messing round. It started when I was about to make a cruise missile typed when, I had just coppied the file and then I spotted the smoketrail = line and wondered what would happen if I used an explosion in here...would it crash the game, not work, or look fantastic. The answer, #3 a burning missile which roars around the battlefeild engulfed in bursting flame. I the explo I used for this effect was streamer1 and the Burning Hell Bat can be found in Blade Of The Betrayer after I had modded it further.
Folowing Respawn Point - I decided once upon a time, whilst making Cartoon Dreadnought I think, to fiddel with the Bauble and see what I could do. So I took the bauble and first used a different entinty type (duno what), it didn't work. So I took the bauble and replaced it with the concusion weapon ent, which basically made a respawn point for concusion which followed my tank, the spawned weapons also followed me. Try it, I never released it because I didn't like it :D .
Projectile Trail - Completely evil is all I can say, it involves setting the smoketrail line as a projectile. The projectile is to powerful it can destroy you when you fire it. I discovered this during further experimentation after Explotrails. I never put it to good use.
Spewers - The creation of super-intelligent people. These can be used in any way you can imagine, spectacular, I even used them as a smoketrail in Alpha Nova I beleive.
Any comments, further suggestions, insired ideas, post them here, and if this doesn't bring life back to the LDA forums then we're doomed! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO............5 hours later...........OOOOOOOOMMMMEEDDD!!!!!
