Scorch and Flamer

Tiberian Sun had special support for napalm animations: two tags that spawned new fire animations defined by SmallFire and LargeFire. This has been reimplemented as it worked previously.

There is one notable change in behavior compared to Tiberian Sun: If LargeFire or SmallFire are not set correctly, the game will not crash when a new animation of these types is about to be created.

[Animation]►Scorch= (boolean)

Whether a new [AudioVisual]►SmallFire animation should be attached to the same object this animation is attached to when expiring. Does not spawn on water, beach, ice or rock terrain. For a complete description of behavior and requirements, refer to Scorch on ModEnc Defaults to no.

Note

Do not set Scorch=yes on [AudioVisual]►SmallFire, because this would create a loop: if the animation expires, a new animation of the same type is created and attached to the same object. It also causes trees on fire to never burn down.

[Animation]►Flamer= (boolean)
Whether new [AudioVisual]►SmallFire and [AudioVisual]►LargeFire animations should be randomly created close to the location of this animation when expiring. For a complete description of behavior and requirements, refer to Flamer on ModEnc. Defaults to no.

New in version 0.8.
