A list of Lua-scripts for the ME



 

I thought it would be a good idea to start making a list of all the various Lua scripts for the mission editor that has cropped up but become hidden in all the posts in this section. Would appreciate suggestions, help keeping it up-to-date and maybe even stickied?

Great find! I've added it. It's really difficult to remember and find all the posts and I have only checked the English side...

I know a lot of these scripts depend on dynamically added units- thought I'd link to this post reporting a bug that seems to be causing difficulties:

 

http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=118708

 

It looks like they've identified a pretty substantial server side memory leak and I THINK it's pointing at dynamically added ground units.

 

Just be aware.

Nicely reported bug! Community at its best. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. Meanwhile we do have 1.2.6 that work fine (dual installs FTW!).

 

Edit: The OP doesn't display properly in Tapatalk for me. Any suggestions for why?

Oh cool, I'm on that list twice :D

Was scratching my head, "what does he mean twice"? Didn't realize the two names. I changed it to your forum name to lessen mine and others confusion :D

Thought there was a good script out there that would randomly generate airborne opponents ... don't remember where I saw it.

 

Sounds familiar to anyone?

Do you mean this or this maybe?

Btw, I see that the list has become quite long and unwieldy, so I am looking for suggestions to other ways to organize it. Anyone have any ideas?

@Ragnar, no worries ;D you are a volunteer after all lol

 

The wikis are a good idea but most new people would find the forum first so I feel that the list needs a presence here too. Perhaps separate the feedback/questions/updates part from the actual posts containing the info and links?

 

On a separate note it probably is a good idea for the Autonomous CAP and GCI script to either point or mention the community versions here http://forums.eagle.ru/showpost.php?p=2114601&postcount=137 as between all the various people who've worked on it since Snafu went on leave it has come quite a long way.

 

Cheers,

Stoney

 

PS Idea came just after posting. Is there anyway to make the info posts updateable by someone other than you Ragnar? That might make it easier to keep them up to date although it would expose them to malicious intent I guess.

I'm starting to create a page on the hoggit wiki. Gonna organize it a little differently and list dependencies. Since it is a wiki anyone can edit it, plus there is the ability to revert changes and all that lovely stuff. I doubt malicious intent will be a major issue.

 

Edit: My effort so far http://wiki.hoggit.us/view/Simulator_Scripting_Engine_Documentation
