Author File Description
File Details
Version: Both
Im very proud of this new unit , I think it turned out great .

The Gyrocopter has new models and animations as well as a cool sound set,

it also has a new kind of attack , the gyrocopter drops poison gas bombs that release a toxic poison gas that both damages and confuses the enemy causing them to unknowingly target each other . this attack has a 10 sec cooldown so the Gyrocopter works best as a hit and run unit.

But by far the thing that makes it stand out most is when the Gyrocopter is destroyed it exploads and the Pilot bails out and slowly parachuts to the ground , the screenshot shows the little smily face parachuter 1 of 5 different chuts, when the Pilot hits the ground he keeps fighting with his trusty bow . he is weak without his ship but alot of fun anyway. this took me a very very long time to make work and was a true exercise in frustration but in the end I loved how it turned out , I hope you enjoy it a please let me know what you think.

Updated this works for both Aom and Aomx now.

i reduced time it takes for Pilot to spawn after chut lands by 2 , I think I fixed the problem with the texture on bith

that means alot coming from you thanks, I did work hard on this one , well I work hard on all my mods but this one was a challenge.

Do you have any idea how long before BCtool will be done , I could realy use it for my new Steam Tank unit, I need to add an attachpoint so i can make smoke come out the boiler ,its almost done so I might post it and make an update after you release your tool.
invent00r Probably just my game, but bombing just didn't happen :s.

Bomb birth didn't show any effects at all..

Death was maybe a little bit too harsh.. Whish leads to the pilot falling - very nice indeed, and the random parachute also looks great, except it took too long to convert to end the animation after it hit the floor.. Not sure if there's something you can do about this tho..

When adding several Gyrocopters births at the same time on the editor, they seem to lose their texture during the animations..

If not all my problems, it's a very good work. I liked the idea and the gyrocopter model.

hhhuumm very odd that the bombs dident work , did you get the green gas ? Ill look into it maybe I missed something when I packed it up . I had the problem with the texturn on birth as well I thought it was my PC as well , cant explane it everything is right in the anim file maybe if I add the texture directly to the .brg that might fix it , Ill try that and then Ill update .

as far as the exploading death , I did that because of a problem I had animating the copter crashing , normaly when a air unit dies it falls from the sky quickly to counter this I had to make my models move up sharply , this caused the animation on the copter to look bad and jumpy I did 4 or 5 different animation before I decided to blow it up , the exploading one looked best .


I downloaded this myself a loaded it on a test PC and the bomb attack worked fine , when the bomb hit a green fog should rise and damage nearby units , Did enyone els have a problem with the green fog not working??

As far as the texture on birth go,s I think I fixed it . I dont know why the replace texture was messing up but I hex edited the birth .brg to change the texture , the odd thing is it worked fine on my main PC but on my backup PC the player ID color showed up on birth , cant explane this , if anyone know pls let me know.

and I slso shortened the spawn time of the pilot by 2 seconds after I looked at it again it did seem too long.

xEXOLARx Nice this is awesome. the crash landing was great n the random parashoots.

Thanks very much , but did you have any problems with it or did everything work?
xEXOLARx It worked fine. Was the gyrocopter ment to change colour when it is flying from blue to nothing if its player 1? It also would be nice if you could make the gyrocopter landand move like a car
