burning and exploding fuel barrels script
« on: 17 Dec 2004, 19:17:42 »
I've had a lot of fun with this one.   When you shoot barrels to half damage, they begin to burn, then explode a few seconds later (like HL2 barrels).  When barrels clustered together, it causes a very cool chain reaction:  When barrel explodes, it causes nearby barrels to burn/explode, etc.

You also pass in an array of soldier groups that you want to burn if the unit is within 10 meters of an exploding barrel.  I realize it would be cleaner to just find any unit within 10 meters of an exploding barrel, but that was a bit too complicated for me...

Any feedback would be welcome.  Especially how to make this work better for multi-player (the barrles explode on all clients, but not all players can see the fires?).

Unzip the attached file to your User Missions directory, and then run it via Mission Editor Preview.

Enjoy.

P.S.  Credit goes to GeneralBarron for his fireEffect.sqs script.  I use that one alot!

Sorry for wasting your time onion.  I removed the addon, and the attachment in the frist post should now be clean (no addons).

Very nice but I did get one error once the barrels blow up:

typeof |#|_obj == "logic"

Wonder if it's possible to have units in the area to either run away when they're on fire or try to put the barrels out somehow.

I especially liked the burning piles left after the explosion.

As this thread is about 10 years old, it's likely that the download link was removed. However, there may some particle effects scripts in the editors' depot which fit your needs.
Some of the most memorable missions made involve the player doing very little...
