Hey there I was thinking of adding harvesters that players could control and harvest on their own with a seprate harvester other then the AI one. I was wondering if anyone could help me out on which scripts I should use and possibly help me with setting the scripts up. I can probley handle the basic stuff but there may be a thing or two I'll be lost on.

Add a new vehicle to the purchase terminal listing on a certain map, then add the nod artillary since it drives like a harvy, then change it's model to the gdi/nod harvesters and attach the money script when you sit in tiberium....done.

"the money script"? Also am I attaching this to the harvest or a zone? I can do the harv setup part lol>.>. I assume I attach it to the harvester. All I need to know what is the "money script".

Money script is the script that you use to tell the arty harvy when sitting upon tiberium, it slowly gives you more money, as for the other stuff, edit the purchase settings, not the harvester itself...

He isn't asking what it does, he is asking what it is.. the NAME of the script he should use.

I would like to know too.

Note that the RA_xxx scripts require that the harvester model have at least 2 animations (they can be the same animation with 2 different names though). One is used for harvest and one is used for dump.

I managed to set them up with the following:

JFW_Resource_Collector - attached to both Harvester presets.
JFW_Resource_Field - attached to Script Zone at the Tib Field.
JFW_Resource_Refinery - attached to Script Zone at Refinery Dump.
JFW_Destroy_Self_Timer - Attached to 'Dollar Sign' animation.
(to destroy it once it had played it's animation)
JFW_Play_Sound - Attached to 'Dollar Sign' animation.
(to play a sound whilst the animation plays)

I may write a proper tutorial for RenHelp about this.

Only problem is, when the Harvester enters the Resource Field Script Zone, the "Harvesting" animation (moving claws) only plays once - ie does not loop until it stops harvesting. Anyone have an idea why this may be?

I'm working on this same thing right now but rather clueless as to the name(s) of the animations. What are they?

(I'm attempting to use the RA_ ones.)


Level edit is my play ground

Animations are a set of instructions for the engine to tell it how to modify the bone structure of a model.
(For example: it tells the computer how a model should act when it waves)

These animation names for the RA ore truck are completly dependant on what animations you want it to do. You could just use the animations that the original harvester uses (I'm pretty sure it has stored animations instead of hardcoded). However I do not know these names. You can try to look into always.dat and find the harvester model (i.e. harvester.w3d) and then open it with the w3dviewer. This will show you the animations the model contains. Becouse Westwood stores the animations inside the models itself.

If you don't know how to obtain the w3dviewer: www.tiberiantechnologies.org

EDIT: If you don't know how to open the always.dat: try to find the xcc mixer with google

W3D has two ways of storing animations.

model.model is the name of the animation track within the actual model.w3d file itself. This can only contain a single animation, although you can chain multiple animations back to back and use start/end frames to simulate multiple animations.

Pure animations are exported as separate animation.w3d files with model.w3d used as the skeleton for the animation. These are accessed using model.animation and you can have as many of these as you want.

Opening model.w3d in W3D Viewer will only show the animation (if any) that is within model.w3d itself. If you want to view the others you have to also load animation.w3d into W3D Viewer, which unfortunately requires you to know which files they are in in advance.

Or you could try something crazy and attempt to load every single W3D in the game into W3D viewer at the same time. I don't know how much memory it uses for each model and it'll probably take forever and a day to load but then you'll have a list of every single model and every single available animation for that model.
