Building destruct effects

23 posts in this topic

Maybe my problem has been reffered in some other topics but as far as I searched and read I haven't found any clear solution ... so here I am ...

I have a building in my map with this config below ...

class CfgPatches 		{

class APLION_Buildings	{
	units[] = {};
	weapons[] = {};
	requiredVersion = 1.0;
	requiredAddons[] = {"CABuildings","CABuildings2","CAData"};
};
};

class CfgVehicleClasses {

class APLION_BuildingsVehicleClass {
	displayName = "ApLion Houses ";
};
};

class CfgVehicles {

class HouseBase;
class House: HouseBase	
{
class DestructionEffects;
};	
class All;
   class Ruins;	
class APLION_Base_Object : House {
	scope = 0;
	side = 3;
	icon = "iconStaticObject";

		{
			displayName="Close Door";
			condition="this animationPhase ""door_button2"" >= 0.5";
			statement="this animate [""door_button2"", 0]";
		};
	};
};
};

... my problem is that I want this building to have a much more dust effect when is destructed in order to give better effect during colapse and during ruins revealing period ... plus ... a way to make these ruins to be revealed in the center of my building after destruction and not at the original left place they are by default ...

Can anyone be so kind to help me on these issues as I'm totally lost ?

Please excuse my bad English and let me know if more info needed ...

hi

for position of ruin make memorry point where you want it in model and when you name Dampos

change here

class Ruin1

{

simulation = "ruin";

type = "ca\structures\ruins\ruin_01";

position = "Dampos";

intensity = 1;

interval = 1;

lifeTime = 1;

};

for smoke try add (change intensity numbers maybe for results )

intensity = 0.15;

See position >> make own position again inn memory lod position = "destructionEffect1";

class Smoke1

{

simulation = "particles";

type = "HouseDestructionSmoke";

position = "destructionEffect1";

intensity = 0.15;

interval = 1;

lifeTime = 0.05;

};

class Smoke2 : Smoke1

{

type = "HouseDestructionSmoke2";

};

class Smoke3 : Smoke1

{

type = "HouseDestructionSmoke3";

};

class Smoke4 : Smoke1

{

type = "HouseDestructionSmoke4";

};

class Smoke5 : Smoke1

{

type = "HouseDestrSmokeLong";

};

this may help a little , different damage but somethings about config in there

Thanks Thromp ... I'll give it a try and I'll come back with results ...

Thromp ... regarding this ...

class Smoke1

{

simulation = "particles";

type = "HouseDestructionSmoke";

position = "destructionEffect1";

intensity = 0.15;

interval = 1;

lifeTime = 0.05;

};

class Smoke2 : Smoke1

{

type = "HouseDestructionSmoke2";

};

class Smoke3 : Smoke1

{

type = "HouseDestructionSmoke3";

};

class Smoke4 : Smoke1

{

type = "HouseDestructionSmoke4";

};

class Smoke5 : Smoke1

{

type = "HouseDestrSmokeLong";

};

Where I must place it ... in "class DestructionEffects" instead of mine or in "class DestructionEffects : DestructionEffects" of my building ?

Replacing under the "class DestructionEffects" I had no affect so far ...

cant really copy paste and see everything here,

it should go in your Base destructioneffects inside if you want all to inherit from it yes or if you just want one Particular building then inside its own

Destrcutioneffects

{

class Ruin1

{

simulation = "ruin";

type = "ca\structures\ruins\ruin_01";

position = "";

intensity = 1;

interval = 1;

lifeTime = 1;

};

class Smoke1

{

simulation = "particles";

type = "HouseDestructionSmoke";

position = "destructionEffect1";

intensity = 0.15;

interval = 1;

lifeTime = 0.05;

};

class Smoke2 : Smoke1

{

type = "HouseDestructionSmoke2";

};

class Smoke3 : Smoke1

{

type = "HouseDestructionSmoke3";

};

class Smoke4 : Smoke1

{

type = "HouseDestructionSmoke4";

};

class Smoke5 : Smoke1

{

type = "HouseDestrSmokeLong";

};

... first of all ... not much changed regarding dust effects ... and ... even if I have placed a memory point (in my memory lod into the center of the building) ... the ruins model is still outplaced (original position).

Can you please check my config above for errors ?

Thanks for your efforts so far mate.

No problem ,

well small one , slight delay because of RL , will be more like 3 hours sorry

i started it though will get it right by tonight ;)

meanwhile i saw this have a read also

http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Building_Configs

and

http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Mondkalb%27s_Addon_Tutorial

Yes I've already seen these mate and my config I believe is based on these two links ... but my building questions are slightly different I think so I'll be waiting for your example :)

Please also note that I'm not using a custom ruin model but one from BIS defaults.

hmm if your using a bis ruin then maybe it is offset for original building purpose, for this you will have to move your memory dampos to compensate so it will become in right place .

here is file mate

3 very smal building

house 1 is smoke as i put before

house 2 last a little longer , as you can see i have altered intensity and lifetime in config of house2

house 3 more so

im sure there is little mistake but ask any questions.

will be in empty/thromp_houses/ 1 and 2 ,3

took me longer to find a host that didnt take 3 hours to verify :(

Thromp thanks a lot mate and sorry for late reply ... I'll make some tests and I'll come back with results.

---------- Post added at 12:35 ---------- Previous post was at 11:53 ----------

ok I've made some tests and now I have the smoke I want so thank you very much again Thromp ... but regardless any movement I've made to the Dampos memory point in order to compensate the offset position of the ruins model, nothing changed ... is there any change to be locked in position somehow by default ?

Also if its possible I would like to ask a way (except smoke) to produce some fire upon building destruction ... is it possible ?

Well problems are never end ... as I said thanks to Thromp I have the amount of smoke destruction effect I want ... so I decided to build my own ruin instead using one of BIS defaults ...

I made the p3d and according (at least I believe) Thromp example I've tried to make it work ... but no !! ... my ruin model is not showing when my building falling down !! ... I can't figured out what I'm doing wrong so for one more time I'm giving the config I use ...

you can simply use my config if you wish and rename apilon

look in arma.rpt it will show you exact erro , it might just be simple path error mate

But Thromp have a better look ...

I have already defined ...

class Ruins;

class Land_build2_ruin: Ruins {

scope = protected;

vehicleClass = "Ruins";

model = "APLION_buildings\build1\ruins\build2_ruin";

displayName = "MyRuins1";

};

and after that in my model ...

class DestructionEffects : DestructionEffects

{

class Ruin1

{

simulation = "ruin";

/*type = "ca\structures\ruins\ruin_01"; */

type = "APLION_buildings\build1\ruins\build2_ruin";

position = "Dampos";

intensity = 1;

interval = 1;

lifeTime = 1;

};

};

isn't enough ? or I missed something ?

sorry mate didnt see on ipad , on pc now :)

check arma.rpt after blow house and then show here what it says

only thing i see is this

class HouseBase;

class House: HouseBase

{

class DestructionEffects;

};

class All; <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< hmmm

class Ruins;

class all would come before house so you are maybe changiung inheritance and lose something , wild guess

try like this

class HouseBase; // External class reference

class House : HouseBase {

class DestructionEffects; // External class reference

};

class Ruins; // External class reference

Because I'm running some more addons at same time it will be difficult to give here the whole RPT ... so I found and giving the error regarding the ruins model (from RPT inside).

hmm try change this

or

well beacuse of this here

};

you creating new destructioneffects thats empty when you then do this (i think ) , my example works and its all i can see different you see from my config.

Now this is funny ... I've change the class DestructionEffects; with class DestructionEffects {}; .... now I have no errors in RPT but my building is not collapsing anymore !! strange !!

---------- Post added at 16:05 ---------- Previous post was at 15:57 ----------

UPDATE ... YES it worked ... replacing class DestructionEffects; with class DestructionEffects : DestructionEffects {}; as you said ... I have my ruins in place and without any RPT errors !!

Thromp you are a life savier :)

Thanks a lot ... again and again :)

well its almost 1 year since i even opend this game so , i also learned something incase i get bored flying Helicopters :)
