Dynamic Destruction & Fixed Various Objects

Post by ghype » December 2nd, 2017, 9:58 pm

There was an idea to improve certain scenarios and mp maps with destroyable objects and use them as blockage or loot boxes.
The concept si that you would have to hit the object and it would be replaced with a more destroyed version.
Started with the gates but thought it can be applied to many more things.

I am not wml wizard but i do handle graphics pretty well, so thought I leave them there for free usage. Guessed they'd do nice in some campaign or or stuff and aren't that difficult to code.

You can leave suggestion on other breakable object or similar request. Planning to do more of them.

the images look great! :) however, it would be nice if you attached zip (or whatever popular archive format you want) files with the individual images of each variation, so that people don't have to copy-paste parts of the large images you post.

Your images looks great and it is a very usefull project :D

I would be interested in ruined fences (mainline overlay embellishment), for decorative destruction in World conquest II. Anyway I will keep an eye on your future work, pretty sure I could use something.

@tekelli are you refering to this ruined-fence?

I am free for requests, but I not rly sure what exactly i would be supposed to with the ruined fences.
Do you need different version of that "ruined-fence.png" or what?

he probably meant ruined versions of the connecting fence terrain. that'll require a lot of images though.

I am unable to deal with graphics, so I used a generic image with some trash. It would be nice use real images in data/core/images/terrain-graphics/Embellisment. There are like 15 images, if you want to deal with terrain in an easy way, I sugest you just replace temporaly your mainline images while you are creating ruined versions and testing on map editor how they look.

you should make back bars a separate image, since the units are meant to be inside

an opened cage certainly would be a reasonable idea.
