Grandiose Dream of Area of Control VPs

Post by TankerOne » Wed Jan 08, 2020 7:51 am

This is going to be a hard request to do if it’s possible, but is there any way to do a area control VP, as in one side has a 3/4 advantage in the VPs Zone of control, then that side holds the point. But when it goes down to 2/4 or 3/8 or 5/8 advantage, then it becomes no mans land. But as soon as one side gets 3/4 advantage, then it becomes that sides.

I can't see any reason that wouldn't be scriptable. All the VP logic is in script.

Alright, thanks. Will be experimenting with them and will post a update when I do something right or break it.

Oh, Before I go and break more things, is there a place within the VP script that you suggest I look?

It depends on whether you are using the VP plugin as the basis or one of the mission scripts which have their own VP mechanism.

More Mission VP script than the plugin for now.

IIRC there is a single function used in most mission scripts which handles VP ownership etc. You may need to tweak the logic to whatever your desires are, and potentially set up the VPs as initially desired.

Okay, will do. If this works, City fighting is about to become even more of a pain.

P.S. Probably should have asked this first, but what software should I use to open a BSF. file.
