Hi, I'm new to the fallout modding, as I recently just found the game and began messing with the editor.. So far I know how to implement new soldiers and now my current project is adding some cars to Alpha Bunker. So far I added also every vehcile I wanted and changed their colors EXCEPT I can't get the tank right. I put the bottom portion down and then attempt to put the gun on top but it won't let me... Is there any clever way to Have both so I can have my own tank rampage?

Sorry if this has been posted before, but I looked hard and didn't see it =\
Also sorry if this doesn't belong here, since it was kinda tough to decide to put this in the general help or just put it in the mod section with all the smart peoples who know all this stuff =)
Thanks for the help!

After setting tank entity..click turret and scroll up 4? levels..you can then place turret on top of tank body.

Er no ogreb, just put the tank on the map, it'll spawn the turret itself in game.

Well that answers that..
Spawn turrets?
I just added my own ..so I could point them in the right direction...of course they sometimes spin around no matter where I point them.

Live and learn..

It's because they're vehicle weapons, if the tank is linked to it's turret it'll generate the weapon, pointing the same direction as the tank.

If you place a seperate turret you'll have an extra weapon on the map IIRC, well it screws things up anyway.

Well the idea was to have a broken down tanks turret pointing at the scene of it's last battle...Which is at a 90 degree angle to the postion of the body..

Can't have everything..
So far I haven't had any problems from placing my own turrets...but since I can't aim them..whats the point!?

Off with thier turrets!

If it's not meant to be driven then instead of using the tank vehicle make a breakable with the tank sprite and another one with the turret sprite then you'll be able to position them how you want and destroy them as needed.

If the tank is repairable turn the whole tank. smile

I keep forgetting that you can do that...make a new entity and plug in sprites..


I see tiles in my sleep!

Do tank sprites have all forms of death..like actors sprites etc?
They must..since tanks can be destroyed...

They have normal, explode and electrify death anims, but the final frame is the same for all IIRC.
