Howdy thrax, can i get you to help me on this, as i am still somewhat a noob at coding.
enclosed is a diagram of what i am trying to do, i already managed to send the projectile straight up in the air , the redirecting towards the target is the main issue right now.
at point help1 is where i am stumped, how can i direct weapon towards the target, i tried to use sight position, but it warped teh projectile back to the tank and fired from teh barrel (doh!).
after we iron out help1 (if its even possible that is) how can i auto home the target, i know i can use the weapon aimed over somehow, as i checked the example of homing missiles in merge and missile type II in pink panther mod.
any way to make it aim the way the users facing, after i send it straight up?
Also is there a way i can make it not track the firer also?
Could you possibly toss a script my way if your not too busy?(of course anyones open to give a wack at it!)
Help Much Appeciated
PS heres my test script.

this problem is fgixed, now, i sent the whole wrapped mod to laptop so he could host it, thrax your suggestion got me thinking in the right direction, thanks! 😀 i first just sent it in the direction the tank aims for like .005 of a second, then redirect it up, ty 😀
…i sent the whole wrapped mod to laptop so he could host it
im sorry, i cant. its 30MB compressed.
just to give you an idea, thrax’s merge mod is currently hefty at about 5.5MB.
if it was really something special i could probably do it. your mod is good, but its not polished enough at this stage to warrant the upload times.
5 or 10MB is doable. i dont want to put you off. its a nice effort. maybe if you go through doing some trimming and cleaning.
give me a cut down version that you can host as a test – gauge peoples interest. 10MB max compressed (once zipped). otherwise maybe theres someone else around with a very fast connection willing to host it for you. might be worth asking
ps: try not to include windows thumbs.db files when you send stuff
