Been a while since I was last active; hoping there are still a few of the old timer around. I've spend spend several hours going through roughly 400+ posts looking for an old post that I just can't seem to get a break on. Hoping someone might have new direction to search under.
Approx. 3-5 years old post I believe. A gentlemen was looking to create the effect of launching a building deployment pad in a parabolic arch; however, while the projectile was in transit it would periodically lay behind relays that would fall to the earth. Was quite a tricky problem that had threads in both data and triggers, although I believe it was finally solved in triggers. If someone remembers the thread, I would really appreciate some help locating the original. If I'm not mistaken he was actually porting it from an old pc/sega game and even have a youtube demonstration.
I am not familiar with that thread but it would be possible using just data. Since LOTV the Launch Missile effect has the Effect: Periodic Effect field which could be used to launch the relays using a throw driven mover. The actual deployment pad would use a Launch Missile effect that uses the pad itself as the ammo unit and a parabola driven mover.
