GBS-III Tutorial - Simple Combat Scenario

Recommended Posts

Below is a simple script scenario. Copy and paste the script into IA0901.SCR. Then copy and paste the description into IA0901.DES. Both of these should be blank files in Notepad or your favorite text editor. WARNING: There should be a blank line (i.e. carriage return) on the last line of the DES file or it will not display correctly in MISCON.

Then build the scripts as normal and copy the three resulting (MIS, DES, DAT) files to your MODS folder and run the IA scenario.

Quick explanation of some strange looking scripting directives.

  1. This is a cyclic event. The 0 indicates the date from now. And the 10 is the interval. What this means is that, until destroyed, every 10 mins, that hostile carrier will fire the !engage_player event and launch two fighters to attack the player.

    code:


    !engage_player

    0,10


  2. In this case, the carrier will launch two fighters of random type. They are random because fighter is a derived class. If you wanted a concrete class, you would use a fighter class name e.g. aurora, raven etc. By using the derived class, you introduce a random occurence to the scenario since you have no way of knowing what type of fighter is going to be launched. Also, by using the LAUNCH command, the carrier will launch any type of object, regardless of whether it has it or not. e.g. Megarons don't have Stardrone fighters, but it can launch them using this command.

    code:


    !engage_player

    LAUNCH fighter,2,attack player


  3. This one just awards EPs and a medal if the player was the one that destroyed the target.

    code:


    !destroyed e0,player

    broadcast "COMMAND: PRIMARY TARGET DESTROYED"

    broadcast "+1 STAR OF MERIT MEDAL +5000 EXPERIENCE POINTS"

    ep_add,5000

    add_medal 1,1


  4. Notice also that GALCOMHQ's launch systems are offline and will only come back online when the !backonline event is fired 20 mins into the scenario. Likewise, the hostile Megaron carrier won't appear until the !surprise event is fired 10 mins into the scenario.
