again, there should be NO armour references in team_*.ufo - they are only added  if the actor has any armour equipped

                                 
^This means for me that Ortnoks NEVER get their armor equipped, how should the engine ever know where to find those textures without armourpath definition in armour.ufo !?

Sorry I still do not fully understand (will read the update in a minute).

there IS an armourpath definition in armours.ufo for both alien armous, light and medium, one is set to "light" and one is set to "medium"

This is not skirmish but campaign.

Read equipment_missions.ufo please. Aliens in your game just don`t have enough interest to have armour.

Okay. Then this means Ortnokarmor image (the rendered one (armor.jpg)) will never be displayed in-game.

& still the definition for Taman Medium Armor in team_aliens.ufo is missing:

aliens/taman body01 head01 2

But I do understand now that armors for aliens are not separated for the races (lamp !)...

it's really the last time: There is NO reference to armours in team_*.ufo - so nothing is missing there.

I am quite sure that those models do not depend on alien interest !?
Why are those not enabled in-game ?

Sorry again for turning your head  :-[, but I am learning fast & what I understood once I will know in the future...
The problem was that...

1.) The naming scheme for heads & bodies is a little confusing...

2.) I thought the references were pointing to the textures, not to the md2 files, my fault, my error, sorry 'bout that again...  :-[

3.) It was very confusing to read only the reference to the taman armor.jpg in the reference for alien armor, so I initially automatically thought that the whole definition is for Tamans only & not valid for all of the aliens, so in my opinion this should not be this way & there should be special armor definitions for the other races also...

4.) There is still a problem in team_aliens.ufo, I am sure about that, but I have to find out what it is exactly & will then prepare a patch to correct it...

Thanx for putting the 'new' phalanx-soldiers in, I like the black beauty most ;)

I wonder how they 'fell out' of the game...

Now that I understand this stuff here (lamp!), I will prepare a patch to enhance readability in team_aliens.ufo...


Here what I found out:
Code: [Select]
aliens/ortnok body01 head03 2 // Body:Scared Legs Head:One-eyed Ortnok

The '2' means that body01.md2 should take the skin number 2 (body01c.jpg), which is the Ortnok body with scared legs & use head03.jpg (one-eyed) for the head... (doublelamp!)

...

I would suggest this version for the Ortnok for example:
Code: [Select]
models {
neutral {
aliens/ortnok body01 head01 0 // No Armor, Body: Big open wound, Head: 2 small scars over the left eye
aliens/ortnok body01 head02 1 // No Armor, Body: Big scar, Head: Big scar over the right eye
aliens/ortnok body01 head03 2 // No Armor, Body: Scared legs, Head: One-eyed Ortnok
aliens/ortnok body01 head01 1 // No Armor, Body: Big scar, Head: 2 small scars over the left eye
aliens/ortnok body01 head02 2 // No Armor, Body: Scared legs, Head: Big scar over the right eye
aliens/ortnok body01 head03 0 // No Armor, Body: Big open wound, Head: One-eyed Ortnok
aliens/ortnok body01 head01 2 // No Armor, Body: Scared legs, Head: 2 small scars over the left eye
aliens/ortnok body01 head02 0 // No Armor, Body: Big open wound, Head: One-eyed Ortnok
aliens/ortnok body01 head03 1 // No Armor, Body: Big scar, Head: Big scar over the right eye
//==========================
// These 2 following line are not really necessary as they are the same as line 1 of the Ortnok definition, we keep them for better readability
//==========================
aliens/ortnok body01 head01 0 // Light Armor, Body: Just one version available, Head: Just one version available (others gfx are the same)
aliens/ortnok body01 head01 0 // Medium Armor, Body: Just one version available, Head: Just one version available (others gfx are the same)
}

I do not give up on this, but have to admit that everything in team_aliens.ufo is correct...  ;)
Nevertheless I will prepare a patch to enhance readability there...

I will not use the same command twice, but rather adjust the comments  ;)
