Splits and Airburst¶
Splits missile feature of Firestorm fame has been ported over
to Yuri’s Revenge, with several changes and additions. The related
Airburst logic has been expanded.
New in version 0.7.
The split weapon of the Cyborg Reaper from Firestorm fired two missiles. Each of them split in mid-air after gaining some altitude, releasing two new projectiles each, which would either travel on to the initial target, aim for a new target no more than two cells nearby, or impact on a random cell in a 7 by 7 area.
The actual split happens when an
Airburst=yes projectile is above its
Ranged=yes projectile exceeds its weapon’s
ProjectileRange or the projectile
Refer to Splits on ModEnc for a more detailled description of the logic.
The Splits logic has been de-hardcoded compared to Tiberian
Damage is no longer multiplied by
Speed is used instead of the hardcoded 19,
Bright setting is now also respected instead of just being
Even though speed is not hardcoded any more, you cannot use
Speed values lower than 19 on the
the logic will start to fail and behave erratically.
- Whether the projectile will split into a number of other projectiles defined
AirburstWeapon. Can be combined with
Airburst. Defaults to no.
[Projectile]►RetargetAccuracy=(float - percentage)
- The probability that a split cluster will aim for the same target the original projectile was shot at. The higher the value, the less likely it is for the split projectile to chose another target. Valid range is 0.0 to 1.0. Defaults to 0.0.
Airburst logic was used for the MultiMissile in Tiberian Sun
to deal damage to randomly selected cells below the target area. In Red
Alert 2 the logic has been changed and it always bursts into nine clusters
covering an area of 3 by 3 cells.
[Projectile]►AirburstSpread=(float - cell range)
- The range the airburst effect covers. Each cell in range will be targeted by
Airburst=yes. Cannot be combined with
Splits=yes. Defaults to 1.5.
- Whether a projectile with
Airburst=yesshould use the area around the original target to look for new targets for each cluster. If enabled, the clusters will continue their way to the originally intended target. Otherwise, the clusters will search for new targets in the area where the projectile split up. Defaults to
