Heya thanks for all the replies guys, sorry it took a little bit for me to post back, but we're having a little bit of a Day After Tomorrow crisis in NZ at the mo. Seriously, massive storm, power is all out, subsattions are blitzed, no water, we are trapped up here in the village because massive several hundred year old oak trees etc have been ripped up by the wind and blocking the road.
I looked at it on the net, and funnily enough it looks like a cyclone. It's a bit funny cos i just watched Day After Tomorrow and everything that's happening is so reminiscent, it's awesome! I'm excited! (Phone line's have been restored, this laptop has a fresh battery)
I've been milking the novelty for all it's worth, filtered rain water, baths of cold water dredged from the river, filling up chilly bins with fresh water for the double purpose of milos and keeping the most essential necessities cold, like my beer.
Even though I could just have a mate pick me up and take me to his place where they have power, but that'd kill the whole experience!
Anyways... Cheers MindWorX for getting back to me, and I think pretty much your suggestion has solved it! This is so hassling me because obviously my PC doesn't have power, I was lucky it didn't blow up like it did with my next door neighbour. (As well as plasma TV, amp etc... he's a tech crazy guy, bet he's regretting it now...)
My TV did though,
, the smoke made me sick. Lucky it was only worth a hundred bucks, hopefully I can convince the insurance that it was a plasma too.
(And I can't really look at the YouTube video
, I'm on dial-up and have a MB limit which is tiny,tiny. I can't even upload more than 5 pics in a month.)
A quicky question though. Say I have some massive Giant dude, and I want to have my unit (Move Instantly) attach to his hand like a special effect. In other words, the unit's orientation and all that would act the same as if I went Create Special Effect on Unit's Left Hand etc...
Though I suppose flying height and all that would have to be played with as well.
(Btw, what does Orientation Interpolation mean? I've always wondered.)
But if there like a Move Unit Instantly to X,Y,Z of Left Hand of Unit? Any provision like that? No real biggy if there isn't, but would be neat if there were.
Anyway, that's so awesome, thanks HEAPS MindworX for telling me about that, I never would have thought of using real co-ordinates, I wouldn't have known it makes a difference, and it should allow me to do all I want to do. Dammit, wish I had a computer with power. We could be without for up to two weeks, and we live right next to the power station! My nana and koro get power off the same power station, and they rung up to say that their power was restored in a town over 100km away! What's up with that?
Guess I better stick a notice in my main thread that I'm having technical difficulties for the next two weeks. Oh well, gives me a chance to work on mah story. (Ever notice how dark it is during the day time when it's cloudy and you got no lights? I couldn't even read a book!)
EDIT: Also, thanks once more Soga, for the hint about unit facing! I wonder if it's okay to put someone's name on the credits more than once? Hmm... Lot's of cookehs! That's the best answer. When I have at least 10 rep, or else I just give lots of repless cookies, which is a bit discouraging. (I was getting a whole lot of these, and I thought it was because ppl were being stingy and not approving me. Not sure if I'm happy or not with the truth of it.
. Grr! )
Wait hang on, I've already got it at the moment Move Unit Instantly and set it to the facing of the horse. Will this facing (when using the co-ordinate version) only apply when the unit is stopped, or will I have to make a seperate action of Change Unit Facing over blah seconds or something?
