[unit] tag, need help. (again...)

Post by nexusrebirth »

Hi guys, tis' the third time i write here because it seems like you can do miracles. So i'm trying to have a unit spawn insta ntly at the beginning of the scenario. The goal is to have it in the same side or atleast allied to side1. I also want to disallow movement for this unit. It also needs an id. here is what i tried :

Code: Select all

[event]
    name=start
    [unit]
        type=Sovereign
        side=1
        name= _ "Gurash"
        x=18
        y=30
        id=Gurash
    [/unit]
[/event]
i get lua errors. Me having a potato level in it i have no idea how to read those, they are saying :

Code: Select all

<Lua error> lua/core.lua438: [message] not supported at scenario toplevel
                  stack traceback:
                          [C]: In function '.error'
                          lua/core.lua438: in function <lua/core.lua:426>
and

Code: Select all

<Lua error> game_error: unknown unit type : Sovereign
                  stack traceback:
                         [C]: In local 'cmd'
                         lua/wml-utils.lua:145: In field 'handle_event_commands'
                         lua/wml-flow.lua6: In function <lua/wml-flow.lua:5>
as always here is the full scenario code (wich isn't 100% done but most of necessary things should be in) :

Code: Select all

[scenario]
    {DEFAULT_SCHEDULE}
	id=chasse_aux_loups
    next_scenario=null
    name= _ "Chasse aux loups"
    map_data="{~add-ons/pour_la_horde/maps/chasse_aux_loups.map}"
    turns=30

The first error at least is because you have:

Code: Select all

		[message]
		    speaker=Uldrulf
			message= _ "Si nous ne rentrons pas, nous tomberons à court de vivre, allons-nous en!"
		[/message]
		[message]
		    speaker=Gurash
			message= _ "Si tu n'arrives pas à éliminer quelques loups en plusieurs jours, tu ne seras jamais digne de mener la tribu..."
		[/message]
		[endlevel]
		    result=defeat
		[/endlevel]
	[event]
	[/event]

type=Sovereign
You probably meant type=Orcish Sovereign.

Also, you can put [unit] tags directly in [side] to create units that start on that side.

For the lua errors, just look at the first line. It tells you what the main problem is. For example, "game_error: unknown unit type: Sovereign." That message, at least, should be pretty clear. You can ignore the rest of the lines.

Yeah i read about putting it in side but didn't get it to work. Got it working now. I'm just a bit surprised that it is type=Orcish Sovereign adn not type="Orcish Soverreign" but i'll remember that, thank you for your time :)

I also want to disallow movement for this unit.
for this u can just use max_moves like this:

Code: Select all

[unit]
	id=Gurash
	type=Orcish Sovereign
	name= _ "Gurash"
	x=18
	y=30
	max_moves=0
[/unit]
That gives the unit 0 movement points -> it can't move, but do anything else
eh, what comes here again?
