Take a look at squad_action_apply_ext for sbps/aef/soldiers/riflemen_squad_mp

You will find apply_modifiers_action under actions. This should give you a basic idea of how to apply modifiers to squads. The modifier you are looking for is modifiers\received_accuracy_modifier.

I don't have all those options in the extenstions tab! I did everything else right!
I just realised that none off my squads are called squads like yours. But why?

Hi Janne

Thanks a lot for the guide. You made it look simple enough that I thought I would try my hand at it.

Does anyone know how to add a unit to a building? I have figured out how to make a building required in order to make a unit, but I don't think this is the same thing.

Thanks

Buildings will have spawner_ext if they can spawn units. Take a look at (for example) soviet base buildings.

EBPs\races\soviet\buildings\base_building\barracks_mp

Ah, Fantastic.

I browsed right past that variable.

Thanks for the help!

So, I've got the correct files created and no errors, but my mod isn't appearing as a tuning pack under the custom game options...

Did you remember to build the mod? There's not much options if you followed this tutorial.

You've got to save the mod in the Mod Builder (not the Attribute Editor).


Anyway, Master Janne, do you know how to adjust the entity's behaviour? Here's what I did:


Made conscripts 8 men
-7 men default mosin nagant rifles
-1 man custom entity PPSh 41 SMG.

Now the entity with the PPSh always walks far away from the pack as in like this.


:snfAmi::snfPeter::snfAmi:
:snfMarcus::snfQuinn:
:snfCHVGame::snfPeter:


:snfBarton:


You can see that BartonPL is lagging behind Ami and friends. Anyway that's how my custom squad always walks.

Thanks for your help on previous questions of mine. :)

Well that's weird. Have you tried if "Barton" lags behind with a smaller squad?

Those error codes are really hard to debug, I would recommend carefully doing everything again by the tutorial.

Managed to create a tuning pack and test it successfully. Same process doesn't work with Win Conditions, though. I don't know what I'm missing but the win condition doesn't appear in the custom game dropdown.

Also, like others noted. The attribute list is different from what we have. It seems we are missing anything related to squads. We can set attributes for single soldiers but not for squads.

I did the same thing with the grenadiere this time with an MP40 and :snfBarton: don't lag behind. Only conscripts

Maybe it depends on the individual speed of the unit?

If I remember correctly browsing the stats there are squad formation plans for each squad. And for conscripts it was 2 right 2 left and 2 middle
Maybe 8 men screws too much with this ?
