After various things getting in the way (including a nasty cold that put me out of action for the best part of a week) I am now going to do some more scripts work. Can people here please advise me of (or link me to trello cards for if they have access to trello) the things I should be working on?

I'm pretty sure I successfully knocked that up in the last release of 4.2, did you not see a change? Maybe it didn't make the last release, in which case its in the upcoming patch...

Maybe you could bring back flames on vehicle when it's damaged.
Something like this: Look at 1:40 youtube.com/watch?v=-ymuc23kReU

Could you implement an ignore function for non-XWIS users?

Could we get these things working properly on the fds:
Monitor_Sound
Stop_Sound

Cause currently theres no way to stop a looped sound other than rejoining game and also no way to know if a sound ended other than having a timer and manually entering sound length.

Also not sure if updating the object to clients works as a hacky way to stop the looping sound? (After you use Stop_Sound)

There is no way to make Stop_Sound work over the network due to how the sound engine works.
Sounds in the sound engine dont have any kind of "ID" you could send to the clients so they know which sound object to look for.

I usually make a w3d that creates sound and then just destroy it.

That still makes a looped sound continue unless you rejoin the game.

Jonwil couldnt this be a nice next project to do in the ren engine Smile? Implement ids with sounds?

The use of a w3d file that plays a sound and has the "stops when hidden" box ticked (and is then hidden via Commands->Set_Is_Rendered to stop the sound) is probably the only way to get sounds you can control over the network. It would even work such that if the sound is playing and someone joins the server, they hear the sound.

Making the kind of changes to the sound engine that would be necessary to have Stop_Sound work over the network would be too much work.

Holy ballz does that work server-side? Like you change that in your objects file and load that?

Thats got nothing to do with an objects file. Its something you make in w3dviewer that lets you embed sound data in a w3d file and have it play.
