Yeah, like I said on Steam, I felt that half a year was long enough.

I have been tinkering with this a little bit, I noticed that there was a bunch of lua errors in the console when certain things happened so I tried to sort them out,

First, the "shot effect" section in dissapate.lua seems to referance something that doesn't exist, I don't know what it did so I just commented it out.

secondly, the crab to sentry and crab to maulers spam the console with errors on AI.Update, I think this is because they have 2 seperate create functions and the second one doesn't set their ai, by merging the two functions I got the error to go away with no ill effects.

I really like this mod a lot. Its not overloaded with content, but it just feels right next to vanilla units. It seems to be pretty fairly balanced even with the revival gimmick, by virtue of being crabs, its hard to get the head to safety to regenerate.

anyway, I'll attach my modified code incase anyone cares still.

Edit: TGM1234 figured out what to do on Dissapate.Lua so I added the correct upload,

The part in the first script with the effect that you commented out initializes an effect. This causes a boatload of errors when run the way it currently is because this effect is used as a reference throughout the rest of the script, causing an error wherever it is called to be created/destroyed/anything. If it plain doesn't exist, well, apparently the script likes that enough so it doesn't throw anything at you.

While there is no "Laser Shot Effect HELL" anywhere, there IS a "Laser Shot Effect," so you could simply change the reference to THAT instead of removing the effect entirely. Judging by the rest of the script, it seems like the only reason why the author would've made a mistake is because he/she was so used to putting HELL after everything.

Hey, thanks, I guess that happened when the code was updated last.

Whoah thanks for doin that! I also noticed all the console errors, but couldn't do a thing about it. Even worse, it seemed to reeaalllyy slow down the game whenever they turned into crabs for this reason too, so glad this got fixed. Hopefully Kalsb notices and integrates it into the actual mod.

Sorry for not acting on this earlier, I should have the mod updated with your additions very soon.

No problem, I feel like I might as well make you a contributor at this point though.

Ha ha, I can hardly call barely editing 4 files contributing. This is just one of my favorite mods, so much so I practically consider them a vanilla faction. The could use a little more polish in some places, and maybe some diversity in weapons, but overall I think this faction manages to reach the Holy Grails of vanilla balance, unique mechanics, and quality artwork. I'd hate to see them go just because the game got updated around them.

Also they have ties to cortex command lore, something I eventually hope to see revived either officially by datarealms or in a mod.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Especially like the styling of the guns, really good. The one thing that IMHO could stand a small tweak if anything could is actor models - they're slightly more beefy and thick than the art depicts them as. That's a small thing though, and I know I certainly couldn't do better :)

As I do when I get serious about any modding community, I'm trying to move away from the Steam Workshop and take my Cortex Command mods straight from the source. I loved your mod on Steam - these little bug-robots were easily my favorite faction, but your link here is a dead end for me.

This One: http://adf.ly/UPn9b

Ends in a 404.
Anyone else have that problem?
