Help with scripted multiplayer map

2 posts in this topic

Hello hello, if anyone is still remaining in this dying community.

I've decided to return and change some things with my old 2v2 scripted map, by not only adding a few new things but also implementing AI.

The first difficulty I've encountered is that despite having assigned AIs some prebuilt buildings, the buildings always appear to be given to Neutral instead. This issue does not appear with players, however, for when there are 4 players they all start with their assigned buildings. This is the same for units, they are all neutral as well.

The second difficulty I encountered was when adding a new structure, a TechReinforcementPad that gives the science "Sneak attack" to the owner. However if you capture this structure as USA or China then you will not be able to use this unless you have a GLA command center, is there a workaround for this? There's also the AnthraxFacility the GLA gets to use in their base that should give both GLA players the Anthrax bomb science, but since you always start as China I can't really test if this is working or not.

I'm also open if anyone has any critique to the map in case of balancing issues, textures, scripts etc.

Thanks for the help! Map attached below.

I found out the answer by digging through a lot of posts. To assign buildings to an AI in a multiplayer setting you need to spawn the buildings on waypoints that are already assigned to the AI faction. Transferring them directly does not work as the buildings will be sold and ticking the unsellable option will not work. I decided to ditch the idea of giving a sneak attack to people who own the tower, it seems like there is no workaround for that.

      C&C:Online, the community-run multiplayer server for Command & Conquer games affected by the GameSpy shutdown, marked its third anniversary yesterday! This year alone, around 45,000 people have been playing on the servers, with the number still rising. To celebrate this anniversary, prized tournaments have been announced for the month of July, as well as a hint at a new and more convenient way to launch the games onto the service.

      Hi,I'm Pasha,
      I like to play zero hour AOD maps. I made a website to share my AOD maps (3 GB) collected since 2005. I classified AOD maps according to number of players, map makers and types like Air, race, AOA, Compstomps etc. You can start to download maps even now. I already uploaded more then 250 aod maps. Uploading continue. Visit website periodicly to reach new uploaded maps.
      You can sent me your AOD maps to upload and share with AOD players. I can add you map maker list if you made more then 5 AOD maps.

      Over a month ago, the team at GVMERS, who had previously covered the fate of the cancelled FPS Tiberium, created a video on the entire C&C franchise. What you are looking at above is the corrected, definitive version - certain facts about things that happened behind the scenes in Westwood Studios, EA Pacific, EA Los Angeles and Victory Games have been proofread, and each game is now presented in higher detail, in order to better describe what made Command & Conquer what it is, in both its good and bad times. The video is now 10 minutes longer in total, so be sure to check it out!
