randomspawn in maps
« on: June 02, 2011, 11:27:14 am »
as randomspawn now seems to work without problem, I would like to integrate this in several maps.
I already tried it in fightercrash.map and the result in my opinion is very good.
I would like to tackle some other maps with this, e.g. +industrial, +oriental or +ufocrash.
Would that be ok, or is somebody currently doing major work on that?

it's fine to activate it imo - if the map is suitable for this at least

randomspawn is activated on a map under worldspawn and has the effect of randomly assigning the actors to different starting positions. So you put in for example 10 starting positions for the aliens. If the map now starts with 4 aliens, then these 4 aliens will be randomly distributed between the 10 starting positions, resulting in different starting configurations every time you play the map.

nice. And this work only for aliens, or phalanx will be under this flag too?

If aliens only, it will be nice to activate this for the maps.

Either both or none.
But for Phalanx that is not much of a problem, it only effects, who is standing on what side of the dropship.
For the aliens that results in being anywhere, if enough spawnpoints are available.

It might be interesting to have a sort of "grinder" mode in Skirmish for these randomspawn maps where the aliens keep spawning until all your soldiers are dead.
