The TNT Box Guide

Hi, ever wanted to know how to make an exploding TNT Box? Heres the guide for you! This needs no modding, no new sounds or triggers, no new editor, and is avalible to Aom:TT only.

STEP 1:

First, place a "CRATE LARGE" unit (not the one that is open, a closed one with nothing inside it).

STEP 2:

New Trigger: Box_Condition
Priority: High
Run Immedietly: Yes
Loop: No
Active: Yes

Condition: Distance to unit, Unit = "The Unit to Fire the Effect When it is Near the Crate" Next Unit = "Crate" Distance = "9"

Effect: Change Unit Type, "Crate" to "Lampades Blood"
Effect: Sound Filename, "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Mythology\sound\cinematics\32_out\explosion"
Effect: Shake Camera, Duration = "5 Secs"

And there you have it! A TNT barrel!

You can also change the box into "Meteor Impact Ground" instead of "Lampades Blood" to give it a more realistic effect. (Unless that tnt was toxic. . .)

Yeah, lampades blood goes more "all over the place" though. Thanks for posting, TitanHeart.

If you had a Cine block inside the box you could turn use an effect to change it to the Exploding chicken too

What about adding the shock effect so nearby units get flung into the air too?

Interesting, I guess. Probably not worthy of it's own thread though.

why are you always so negative?

nice idea, but it needs more effects into it. i'll list some:
Shockwave godpower
camera shake
some effects from the implode godpower.
fire

just look for more effects

I used a similar idea a few weeks before. Only with a meteorite object. It zooms around and explodes on contact.

Might be wacky, but you can even try the chicken blood; it doesn't need a damage units in area effect either.

Might even try no exploding for meteorites (damage units in area effect). Then it could be like a real meteorite that kills whatever's in its path.

Nice little guide, TitanHeart! Need a few more effects/tweaks, but a great start for an intrepid designer to utilize in his or her scenario.

Can I make an addition to make it even more perfect?
Change the Shake Camera effect to two Fire Events. Make them fire the following triggers:

Cam_shake
Condition: Unit Visible (crate)
Effect: Shake Camera

Cam_shake_disable
Condition: Timer (time of the Shake Camera effect)
Effect: Disable Trigger (Cam_shake)

This will make the camera only shake if the crate is visible. To prevent the shaking from activating when the explosion is already over, there's a trigger that disables the shake trigger.


A condition is not a trigger.
An effect is not a trigger.
A trigger is a combination of one or more conditions and effects.
It causes effects to happen if and when conditions are met.
Period.
