Changes

General

  • Pressing hotkey '7' will now be able to purchase smoke grenade.
  • Moved third person MRLS cam up a bit for a better overview.
  • Reworked crate logic. All Crate types are now separate classes, derived from "Rx_CrateType" This allows for us to easily add additional crate types in the future.
  • Recreated all pre-existing crate behaviour in the new layout.
  • Added Tiberian Sun units (Wolverine, Titan, Hover MRLS, Tick Tank, Recon Bike, and Buggy) via crates.
  • Added Suicide, Nuke(new), SpeedUpgrade, Timebomb, alien abduction, and Tiberian Sun prototype Units crate types.
  • Adjusted crate probabilities and set suicide to 0.
  • Added Speed upgrade multiplier to pawn, for the crate. This is multiplied by the final ground speed after it has been calculated. Also modified the character animation so that run/walk/sprint animations are blended based on the actual speed values of the pawn, and don't have to by kept in sync manually.
  • Some modifications to the beacon class to have it handle low countdown times properly (used for nuke crate).
  • Added special nuke beacon for nuke crate with a 3 second countdown.
  • Removed "DeadVehicleLifeSpan" so that defences don't leave behind invisible collision when the they are destroyed.
  • GFxHud can show health when viewing a demo.
  • Fixed a bug in the missile launcher tracking code that could cause CPU spikes.
  • Speed Trees are now set to True on every graphics preset so that they are visible in-game.

Editor/SDK

  • Fixed default editor settings to not crash on startup.
  • Fixed game asset database settings in DefaultEditorUserSettings.ini to be set to offline mode, as we're not using an asset database server. Updating the databse will no longer crash the editor!
  • Added a config sample to add custom maps. the custom maps will be shown in main menu once added the corresponding .ini file. in this sample, it will show the CNC-TestMap_MP map in frontend. However, map rotation with the custom map is still not yet implemented. will work on it soon.
  • Added the weapons factory max file as an example asset
  • Added wolverine's max file as an example asset
  • Created base "Rx_Pickup.uc" class, to be used for common functionality for various renegade-x pickup items.
  • Created 3 sizes of health pickups, 3 sizes of armour pickups, and an ammo pickup. Intended to be used for deathmatch maps.
  • Updated foliage, and some items in RX_Nature.upk to use lower res lightmaps by default.
  • Added an example mutator script package. Can use this to test our mutator functionality, and distribute as an example to the community.
  • Added Rx_CapturableMCT as a sort of capturable MCT. Kismet can then be used to get its team number and do/restrict stuff based on it
  • Fix to the GetCredits Kismet node
  • Added Rx_ObjectTooltipInterface - adds tooltips to objects.
  • Reworked the MCT to use Rx_ObjectTooltipInterface.
  • Reworked the Purchase Terminal to use Rx_ObjectTooltipInterface.
  • Added bAccessable to Rx_BuildingAttachment_PT.
  • Custom purchase terminals with custom text should be easier with the above
  • BuildingInternalsClass not a const anymore so that it can be changed with mutators
  • Tesla Tank, HoverMRLS, Titan, Wolverine Tick Tank, Recon Bike and Buggy now have vehicle factory classes for mappers to spawn them in their maps
  • Weapon/Vehicle/Death/Radar Blip icons are no longer drawn from flash file. They are now loaded and draw the image from the weapon/vehicle packages itself as a dynamic texture.
  • Added deployable vehicle class which is copied over from UT3's deployable vehicle (press Jump to deploy)
