Carnage (A SandBox Activity)
Wooh, my first real mod release!
Carnage is a sandbox activity, inspired by Weegee's Weapon Test and Luringen's Firing Range scenes, but with a more sandbox feel to it, rather than just a testing scene. It's got a bunch of options, items and settings with which you can do anything you want.
some previews (warning big gif):The Controls:
Space: randomises the team of all units
B: go into edit mode
K: kill all units
numpad 0: save all the units of the red team, press it again to load them.
numpad 1: save all the units of the green team, press it again to load them.
numpad 2: save all the units of the blue team, press it again to load them.
numpad 3: save all the units of the yellow team, press it again to load them.
del: reset all settings and reload scriptsThe Menu:
One of Weegee's excellent menu's controls a bunch of options. Press up/down to change selected option, press left/right to change the option.The Items:
All of the items are found under Carnage Items in the buy menu.
Controller: The controller for the menu. You need one of these to control the options.
Red/green/blue/yellow paint bombs(not pictured in the screen): drop these on units to change their team to red/green/blue/yellow.
Red/green/blue/yellow brains: buy these if you want extra brains as targets.
Red/green/blue/yellow cloning tubes: Cloning tubes controlled by the menu.
Red/green/blue/yellow beacons: buy these to set waypoints for specific teams, don't forget to set the AI mode to GoTo!
Red/green/blue/yellow dropzones: buy these to control where friendly/enemy reinforcements get dropped.
Red/green/blue/yellow tech select: Drop these ontop of units to set the tech of the red/green/blue/yellow team. Drop these somewhere away from units to set the tech to random.The Map:
The activity can be played on any map, and there's also 1 map(the one in the previews) included, you can find it just a bit to the left and down of the Fredeleigh Plains. if you're not playing the included map, the first thing you should do is buy and place a controller (found under Carnage Items in the building menu), to get access to the options menu.Credits:
