Formation distence?

Post by score1_uk »

Right,

How can I make it so when I select say 8 ships, I can get them to fly closer together, as at the moment they line up far away from each other.

Is there a line in the Phy files or somethin to change this distance??

The problem Im having isnt with the formations menu, its just when u select multiple ships and send them off, they go into a standard formation, like a square. When my ships do this, they are to far apart!

open up RTS_CFG and scroll down till u see this

//
// COLLISION AVOIDANCE & PATH FOLLOWING STUFF
//

// How far apart should ships be when moving in formation
float FORMATION_SPACING = 50.0;

the default is set at 100 but 50 is what works for me.
