Defence against the Dark Arts

While testing my new (TotE)map I discovered a few things about Dark Magic I didn't know. (Apologies to those who already knew or put this out somewhere: I was too lazy to search for your info!) 1) Best defence: The complete Armor of the Dwarven Kings! If you have this equipped (Shield, Cuirass, Helm...

gates that restrict

I've done something similar without scripting regions (i.e. in multiplayer maps): You set up garrison gates passable only by a certain player (and his allies) simply by making it owned by that player and stacking it with huge armies, e.g. 10000 titans or something. Only the player who owns the gate ...

spells in towns

I struck this same problem some years ago and believe its a game bug that has never been fixed. You just cannot set spells in town mage guilds. I sometimes got around this bug by limiting the mage guild building level in the town, or by giving a garrison hero a Tome of Magic in the spells I wanted h...

re- multiplayer script functions

Thanks guys!
I don't have any problems (yet!). The filters were explained nicely by Franzy earlier in this forum.
I've studied the 'Gang of Two' script too (playing the map at the moment), which is i believe the first scripted multiplayer map...Ground-breaking work ,Mage of Soquim!!

script file export

Thanks for your ideas... Since I posted this message it occurred to me that its actually very simple! Just unzip the map file and extract the MapScript.lua file to your documents or somewhere. You can then read the script file with NotePad or other text editor, cut, paste, and copy pieces, etc. No p...

H5 transferring scripts

Does anyone know how to export a script from a H5 map and then import it (or pieces of it) into the script of another map?? It would save a lot of work: re-typing, weeding out errors, etc. I often use similar commands in different maps, (such as PlayVisualEffect or Play2DSound) with just small alter...

Re: moving objects

What objects are you trying to remove? For instance, SetObjectPosition and SetObjectRotation don't work for towns, unless you first call MakeTownMovable. Today I just realized I've been stupid (a not uncommon occurrence!)! Looking at the Object Properties Tree there is an option "IsMovable&quo...

H5 RemoveObject() function

I'm having trouble getting this function to work! I've read everything in this forum about it. I've studied maps where it is done (e.g. The Virgin of Ponce 3 - I tried removing the same brick object used there:- in my map it didn't budge!). But the command won't work for me! I've also tried SetObjec...

P.S. I hope the map's author does not hold any grievance against me, I just took as an example the very map I play now :)


Thanks Franzy! Its amazing how much more there is to learn in map-making with the H5 editor!

town building levels (H5)

I found out how to do it!
The DestroyTownBuildingToLevel() functions won't work immediately following the TransformTown() function. BUT they work on the next day!
The script name for your town is not lost when you use TransformTown.

breakout

Thanks for that! I've found in Breakout that "The Hive" is often too tough to capture (played on HARD difficulty). In that case you can still win by luring the defending Hero out, getting him to follow one of your weaker heroes, then sneaking in behind him and capturing the town! :) Sarvi

Recently I submitted 3 new maps (multiplayer) with a new feature which, to my knowledge, hasn't been done before for multiplayer maps. The maps are 'Breakout', 'Dark Alliance', and 'City of Gold' (the last one not yet available but submitted a week ago). Each contains a special victory condition (an...

Has anyone won this map? If so I'd like to hear from you.... After running from Darkstorm's army for several months I managed to build a small force and gather some good artifacts on the way. Then he attacked me in my town. Against the odds, I eventually won the battle with only 3 Hydras left. Prett...

To Flee or not to Flee....

In Tribes o.t. East the enemy heroes tend to flee much more often, especially on HARD or HEROIC difficulty. Sometimes they don't even fire a shot before they go! In doing this the AI hero loses all his army and then has to rebuild - yes, he keeps his hero, but the hero is a sitting duck now for seve...

Does anyone know where i can find the complete set of script functions - including ones that are not in the manual? (e.g. GetPlayerState() - what does it do?).
