Custom Resource Harvest System

Description
Oil harvesting like in Warcraft 2. Oil Tankers go to Oil Platforms, extract oil, and return it to the closest Oil Refinery.
  • Configure multiple tanker, refinery and platform types.
  • Tankers automatically find the nearest platform/refinery after returning/harvesting.
  • Smart targeting - you can right-click a platform to harvest. Also works for newly trained units to mine from their rally point.
  • Can easily be configured to represent a resource other than oil.
  • Includes Oil Display System (not required) - to display oil resource for all players (multiple resources types coming soon)
  • Includes Oil Usage System (not required) - to manage using oil resource for training units (structures, items and purchased units functionality coming soon)
  • Coming soon: ability to define any number of resource types.

The oil resource is tracked per player by the OHS_OilResource[] integer variable.

Installation
Pre-requisite: Bribe's Unit Indexer (included)

1. Copy the Oil Harvest System trigger categories into your map.
2. Make the necessary units and abilities in the object editor.
Abilities:
Harvest Oil - Ability that can target your oil platform.
Return Oil - Ability that can target your oil refinery.
Units:
Oil Tanker - Unit that will harvest the oil. Give your Harvest Oil ability to this unit.
Oil Refinery - Unit that will act as the drop-off point for tankers.
Oil Platform - Unit that will be the oil deposit.
3. Set these units in the variables in the OHS Config Trigger.

You can just merge that return and harvest ability into one because you are using some of the functions twice.
Also,i think you should pick the groups instead of using an integer loop,unit groups are integers too.
And also what mag will say,cache some of the uncached function calls so that you wont repeat it all over again :D
Thats all

Thanks will do!

I was using a integer loop because the code is from another map I'm making where all this took place inside a pick every unit, so I couldn't use that.

Right clicking a refinery causes it to explode.

Hi, that was a bug with a previous version where the unit indexer would sometimes run before refineries were initialised, and sometimes after. I've added a delay and this no longer happens.

The refinery explodes when it has no more oil in it, and the bug was that the oil wasn't properly set.

The oil is kept in an array using unit custom value as the index. You can manually set it yourself
  • Set OHS_OilRemaining[Custom Value of (MyRefineryUnit)] = 5000
I will soon add better documentation.

Attached! It works quite well too, if I may say so. You might just want to decrease the peasants' collision size.

Configurables should be self-explanatory, currently each trip adds lumber. You can change this and the colour in the MPR Return trigger.

Copy both abilities as they are, and make sure to give the peasant the "Get a clue" ability.

btw might this work with a 3rd custom resource too?

Of course. I'm going to implement this system into my Custom Resource Harvest System, which will soon also allow multiple resource types.

is it possible to add the carry animation (gold or lumber) for the worker?

Easily, I'll add that when I get a chance.

Hey, excelent work. I noticed that when you try to create a ship and you don't have enough oil the ship is still created and the game displays an error message. Can you fix it?

Thanks for pointing that out; will do.

EDIT: Was this for the ships purchased at the oil platform?

The training prevention system currently only works for when you attempt to train units, so I'll have to add functionality for buying units.

Let's see...

I'm working on a map and I have five oil platforms, each one with a different amount of oil (at least that's the idea) How do I do that with your system?

The trigger seems to determine that every unit of the type "oil platform" will have the same amount of oil, but I want to have different amount of oil for each one, just as if they where gold mines.

(If this will help, I have a custom unit I use as an oil patch and it has a custom gold mine ability, and I am planing to build the oil platform on it. and I want the oil platform to have the same amount of oil the oil patch has, and I want the oil patch to disappear when I'm done harvesting. Is that possible?)

Edit: I'm asking this because I wanted to make different quantities of oil as a strategic point in my map.

Like so:
  • Actions:
    • Set tempId = (Custom value of (your oil platform))
    • Set OHS_OilRemaining[tempId] = how much oil you want

Help me on this one...

I'm using an oil patch and it has a gold mine ability. I'm building my oil platform on it just like you build a haunted gold mine on a gold mine.

Using your last suggestion I could make my platforms to have the same oil amount as the oil patch on witch the platform was constructed. The problem is that the oil remaining in the oil patch (obviously) is not used. So if the platform is destroyed/depleted and you build a new one, the new platform will start again and this way you have infinite oil.

Can you help me make the resources on the oil patch to drop along with the oil remaining on the platform? If you could do this that might work as a display of the oil remaining on each platform and would help me a lot. Thank you...

By the way, I don't recall if I said it before, but your system is amazing, 5/5...

Edit: I think I managed to do that by myself. The oil amount on my map is now displayed above the platform as "gold remaining", and when you are done harvesting the platform, the oil patch desappears, so you can't build the platform there again. Anyway, thank you.

Oil for upgrades

Hey, I was making my maps and I wanted to ask you how do I do to use the oil not only for the buildings and units, but for upgrades (researches) also. This is the only feature in the oil usage that does not has a function for it. It would be nice if you added this feature...(and would help me a lot...)

I took this directly from my map. I use the point value of units and buildings to array their resource cost.

For researches you'd have to do some more complicated (boring) storing the costs and the researches because they dont have a value which can be detected and used.

The ships block each other returning the oil. Is it possible to remove collision from the ships while harvesting? Similar to gold harvesting.
Btw if i want the ships to return gold and add to the normal gold is that possible?

I've noticed the ships blocking each other too, and, I had no time to do it yet, but I think you can change the collision value in the object editor, so the units harvesting oil will be "smaller" and they won't block each other. After all, they don't need to have a big collision value. The problem is not with the system, but with the ability "harvest oil", that does not have the same effect as the "Harvest Gold Ability".

About returning gold, you can simply make a custom gold mine with any model you want over the water and give the ships the ability "Harvest", like a normal peasant, without using the Oil Harvest System, simply using the existing system of gold collection.

(Please, if I wasn't clear, fell free to tell me that, ok?)

Try it...

I know that i could add return gold, but than normal gold from goldmines can be returned at a harbour too. I dont want that.

Let's see...

I'll think about something...

Edit: Yeah! You're right, its quite a chalenge to do it only in object editor. We'll need some triggers...

Edit (again): I Think I've done it, let's see if you have tried it.

  • -------- Add resources --------
  • Player - Add 10 to Player 1 (Red) Current gold
  • Set OHS_OilResource[tempId] = (OHS_OilResource[tempId] + OHS_OilHarvestAmount)
These functions are on the trigger OHS Return

If you want to have only gold income you can replace the second action using the first one (I've added it so it would work the way you want)

You can also just add the first action, but it will give you gold AND oil.

The oil tanker will add gold and the Peasants will not go to the Shipyard (Because you won't use the "return gold and lumber" ability)

I hope I've helped (if not, tell me)

Editing once again: Forgot to mention it will work for the player you choose (And I've done it right now, so maybe it's not the best way to do it, but will work for single player, maybe with more time we can use a diferent way of doing it)

I can vouche for ZiBi's system - it works perfectly for my AoE II - like map in development for 7 total resources, 4 custom with the trigger.
Customizing it was also very easy with directions - also ZiBi is very kind in helping you out with your bugs.

Is people still working on this? How can i set the computer do the same with their own platforms?
Last update in 2012. Also, ruler is not 100% active around, last in Jan. So, answer is not really.
You'd have more luck posting in WeHZ or Triggers & Scripts.

I am not entirely sure if this system supports use by Computer players, or rather the other way around:
Default Warcraft 3 AI would not support many custom systems unless you add/extend/create the appropriate behaviour either inside the AI or externally via triggers.

I don't know but i surely do appreciate your reply. I've come really close to develop an oil system on my own, but i'm having some strange logistic bugs happening right now at the end that are sending me in the total craziness. This is why i wanna try this out(looks confusing AF for me though) but i'd need to know more, as i asked above.
