StuNZ -> Anyone interested in a freebie OOB editor? (2/5/2001 8:34:00 AM)

I've just finished up tidying up my oob editor, something I've been fooling around with on and off for a while now. It's still pretty rough - no real data checking - but it does do a few things the bundled editor doesn't Weapons: * Displays in game range beside range fields * Field multiply - able to multiple any weapon field (bar name of course [img]http://208.185.88.171/ubb/smile.gif[/img]) and multiple that by a value - either only on that weapon or over the entire weapon list * Speed clear - got a block of weapons to clear, this will do it quickly Units: * Displays the penetration/kill ratings of each weapon of the unit * Displays the effective armour of each face with slope taken into account * Speed clear (as for weapons) Formations: * Display unit type (med tank etc) * Display rarity code * Display availability dates of subformations/units * Set units in formation to x no - so for formations with 10 units, one click = all set to 1 or 2+ (mortars etc) * Speed clear (as above) General: * Clear unused weapons - wipes all weapons in the oob that aren't used by any unit * Display formation counts - for any given year it displays the count of formations on each of the types (armour, artillery, infantry, miscellaneous), to help avoid any dropping off the bottom (not so bad now that it's 800x600 [img]http://208.185.88.171/ubb/smile.gif[/img]). * Change nationality - swap one nationality throughout the Oob for another * AI Pick List Testing - something I threw together when I first started playing around with formations to assist in working out what formation slots the AI uses. It basically creates 199 formations and 249 units where the unit names are unit1 to unit249 and formation x has unitx as it's occupant - using Fred Chlanda's WaWED it's then very easy to see what formation slots are being used under the battle summary. Haven't gotten around to copy/paste functions yet, me mind needs to be functional for that [img]http://208.185.88.171/ubb/biggrin.gif[/img]. If anyone's interested, lemme know and I'll fire off a copy for you.

StuNZ Given the level of interest, it may be worth your while asking someone like Tankhead to host the programme on their web site.

Among the nice features of this editor are: In the UNIT display: (1) Display of weapon penetration (and HE Kill) with each weapon, plus (2) the convertion of armour thickness and slope into a single value for easy comparison In weapon display (1) ranges are converted to the number of hexes, (2) weapon ranges over 200 are converted to the actual range (use of the formula) e.g., 214 = 112 hexes, 216 = 128 hexes. Better weapon range awareness... Missing (or did I just miss it) (1) Ability to copy a unit/weapon and paste it in another slot e.g., copy a sherman, paste it somewhere else and change the weapon in the new vehicle.

Errr, how's currently MIA sound? Not in there yet, but I'm kicking around a couple of ideas for it - if you've used Andy Gailey's kobhack for SP3, it had the ability to copy the entire weapon/unit/formation lists into a buffer, and then paste individual parts back in. What I want to do with it is take it one step further so you can have one oob open, and in the copy "lists" - basically an entire oob open for copy/pasting into the one you're working on - load up any other oob you want, and then paste pieces or entire weapon/unit/formations lists into your current one as you please. Will also look at a simple cut/copy/paste like the sp waw editor has for those times it's only one item to be moved or copied. Inp4668, adantas and Viriato, if you haven't already, you may as well head on over to Tankhead's site and pick it up. Quicker for you guys than an email, and less stress on my modem [img]http://www.matrixgames.com/ubb/smile.gif[/img]. [This message has been edited by StuNZ (edited February 09, 2001).]
