I've set up the artillery vehicle thusly;
Note that I've inserted this script so the vehicle does't blow itself up;
And so I'm able to get the Artillery Targeting Window to open up like this with ENTER and then TARGET ARTILLERY;Why does the MLRS blow up when I try to use it as a player?
You need to add an Artillery Module magazine with the rocket artillery for it to work properly. Try doing the following in the init field of your MLRS:
this addMagazine "ARTY_12Rnd_227mmHE_M270";
Feel free to remove the current magazines before doing this.
Why can't I get the targeting system to work?
Ensure that you have one of the listed Artillery Module magazines loaded into the vehicle you are using.
So what do I do now to get it to hit the target I choose?
I mean sure, I can get it to fire the rockets but not at a specific target. How do I use that pop up Targeting Window?
OK, so if I go to M for Maps then the Artillery Targeting Window appears superimposed over the area where it's localized but if I use the pointer to try to click and target a spot on the map with it, all it does is gives the move order. to that spot instead.
But I don't want to move....I want to blast the crap out of a chosen spot on the map with high explosives from a great range.
