Maybe I've got my wires crossed, but the Banshees default weapon is "Backlash Rockets"
However anything to do with the Carpet Bomb upgrade or validators are applied to "Screecher Missiles", which seem to only be linked to the Dusk Wing Mercenary unit??
I'm feeling really stupid right now, because I can't figure it out :(
Find the actual effect tied to the weapon which is a set, which ties into two effects; a damage and a persistent. The persistent is where the shockwave workings start and is limited by a validator checking for the upgrade.
Please actually take the time to learn the manor in which data works. Had you followed the trail of effects you would have found it.
Thanks for that hobbidude. I am trying to learn things. I actually sit there looking at and trying things for quite awhile before I ask for help.
I'm sorry if it is somehow coming across as me being lazy or uninterested in learning. I honestly am doing the best I can to try to figure everything out. I'm just a little short on free time unfortunately. :(
I'm pretty sure I understood what you said above, and I went looking.
I can't find any validators or any connection to the shockwave workings in the Backlash Rockets Banshee weapons.
Now I have just found some of the Banshee Screecher Missile effects connected to the Backlash Rockets (Damage) Effect. However I can't actually see HOW they are connected, aside from the navigation tree telling me they are.
I actually want to understand how they are connected and why they are not working. I don't just want to fix it and not understand why.
Well THAT explains it!
Seems I am indeed somehow missing the effects I need from the weapon. Weird!
Must be something to do with the way the dependencies loaded?!
I can see how we were both getting our wires crossed, because we were looking at completely different things on the same weapon!! (WTF?!)
@SoulFilcher: Yeah, that was my next step to be honest. Either that or go through the process of replicating the way it was done with the Screecher missiles for the Dusk Wing. It just seems for some reason the effects that Hobbidude has are completely missing from mine... :\ (I'm going to play around with some dependency settings and orders in a blank mod to see if I can figure out why that happened).
I changed the Effect: Impact Effect for Backlash Rockets (Launch Missile) from Backlash Rockets to Screecher Missiles (Set)
@SoulFilcher, I'm pretty sure this is what you did too?
All the other Effects were connected and working as needed, that seemed to be the missing link.
Why this was 'broken' in the first place, I'm not quite sure. Its the only campaign upgrade I've come across that was disconnected in this manner.
