Post Friendly Fire = On?
I have always enjoyed each and every build of CC that came out, but Build 27, while fun, took away the one thing that made this game like a toybox for me: Friendly fire.

Sometimes, when I feel like relaxing, bullshitting around with weapons from various mods, or just play around with CC like a digital lego set, I would use the freetime mod and do that.

I was just wondering if there is a way to toggle friendly fire on in anyway, and if so, I would like to request a mod for it.

It can be done pretty easily, it's merely time-consuming: add IgnoresTeamHits = 0 to the bullets in the INIs.

Is IgnoresTeamHits exposed to Lua/not read only? If so you could turn it back on mid-game.

I'm pretty sure it's exposed and not read-only, looking at some of the scripts I have here.

And that property is attached to the round or the particle?

In this case it's being set as part of creating an AEmitter.

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=31082 may be clearer/more helpful than I am.

It's attached to the MO (whatever MO, period) and it's exposed to Lua.

It's better to set it in the particles's flags at runtime; perhaps this can be done via PresetMan :-)

If there is a way to turn this into a mod I would worship this mod and the mod maker for eternity.
Gawd, I SO MISS friendly fire. :cry:

Code:
function Create(self)
    self.TargetMO;
end

function Update(self)
    for i = 1, MovableMan:GetMOIDCount() - 1 do
        self.TargetMO = MovableMan:GetMOFromID(i);
        self.TargetMO.IgnoresTeamHits = true;
    end
end


This looks and smells like a really bad script.

That won't work, I don't think.

What I'm doing is invoking it in Create(), but you'd have to have a script for every single particle in the game. It'd be faster / easier to use PresetMan and iterate through every single Preset, if a particle type, change the Preset's value for to true. See documentation of AddPreset.

AddPreset only works from file readers (IE .inis), and outputs as Entities, so unless the entity is an MO (which it doesn't have to be, it can be a TerrainObject instead), you can't apply the IgnoresTeamHits. Last I checked, there wasn't an "IsMO()" function for it either.

So are any of the above methods actually work for toggling friendly fire, or is it not there yet and we have to wait for a hero to take on this quest?

Why doesn't someone who knows lua and all different kinds of codes to compare B26 and 1.0 to find out what makes it friendly fire off?

Because there is nothing in B26 to compare it too, because there was friendly fire in B26, and nothing changed it, I believe it was hard coded in B26. So it be like comparing it to nothing. Maybe someone should just PM Data, he'll probably know.
