In an effort to gather all of the information needed to write new, functional, levels for Dyson, I’ve made a listing of all of the various variables for Dyson as collected from the F2 menu in the debug mode. I’m trying to collect a definition of all of these variables as well as min/max values that can be used for each without causing errors. I’ve put the definitions I’ve been able to figure out or guess in. Please let me know if I’m wrong about any of these. ?’s surround my guesses, I’d like confirmation or correction regarding these. I will update this with any info I get.
MAXIMUMSPEED = self descriptive
MINIMUMSPEED = self descriptive (I’ve had errors when I’ve tried to adjust this)
ATTACKREPEATTIME =? time between attacks?
MINIMUMAGENTDAMAGE = self descriptive
MAXIMUMAGENTDAMAGE = self descriptive
MINIMUMDESIREDALTITUDE =? controls how close to an asteroid seedlings will orbit? (out of combat)
MAXIMUMDESIREDALTITUDE =? controls how close to an asteroid seedlings will orbit? (out of combat)
ATTACKAGENTDISTANCE =? range of a seedlings attack?
ATTACKSOUNDVOLUME = self descriptive
MINIMUMHEALTH = self descriptive
MAXIMUMHEALTH = self descriptive
REGENERATE =? Health recovered per tick?
TURNRATE =? Controls how fast the seedlings can turn? (not adjusting this may have caused my MINSPEED errors)
MAXTREES = maximum number of trees per asteroid
MINRADIUS = determines asteroid size (see below*)
MAXRADIUS = determines asteroid size (see below*)
SIZEFROMENERGY = determines asteroid size (see below*)
SIZEFROMSTRENGTH = determines asteroid size (see below*)
SIZEFROMSPEED = determines asteroid size (see below*)
MINSENDDISTANCE = minimum range for seedling sending from an asteroid
MAXSENDDISTANCE = maximum range for seedling sending from an asteroid
* The formula for asteroid radius is (I’m guessing):
RADIUS = MNR + (MXR – MNR) * (SEN * EN + SSPD * SPD + SSTR * STR) / (SEN + SSP + SSTR)
RADIUS = Asteroid Radius
MNR = MINRADIUS
MXR = MAX RADIUS
SEN = SIZEFROMENERGY
SSPD = SIZEFROMSPEED
SSTR = SIZEFROMSTRENGTH
EN = Energy stat of asteroid
SPD = Speed stat of asteroid
STR= Strength stat of asteroid
MINTICK =? Minimum time between AI moves?
MAXTICK =? Maximum time between AI moves?
GRACE = Time before AI can move (in seconds)
COST = Cost (in seedlings) per tree
MINHEALTH = self descriptive
MAXHEALTH = self descriptive
FULLAGEDAMAGEMULTIPLIER =? Damage reduction for being a full grown tree?
ZEROAGEDAMAGEMULTIPLIER =? Damage reduction (or increase) for being a newborn tree?
REGENRATE =? HP regenerated per tick?
LEVELDURATION1 =? Seconds before becoming a level 1 tree?
LEVELDURATION2 =? Seconds before becoming a level 2 tree?
LEVELDURATION3 =? Seconds before becoming a level 3 tree?
LEVELDURATION4 =? Seconds before becoming a level 4 tree?
SPAWNTIME1 =? Seconds between seedling spawning for a level 1 tree?
SPAWNTIME2 =? Seconds between seedling spawning for a level 2 tree?
SPAWNTIME3 =? Seconds between seedling spawning for a level 3tree?
SPAWNTIME4 =? Seconds between seedling spawning for a level 4tree?
AMMOAVAILABLE1 =? Seconds between missile spawning for a level 1 defense tree?
AMMOAVAILABLE2 =? Seconds between missile spawning for a level 1 defense tree?
AMMOAVAILABLE3 =? Seconds between missile spawning for a level 1 defense tree?
AMMOAVAILABLE4 =? Seconds between missile spawning for a level 1 defense tree?
DAMAGEMIN = self descriptive
DAMAGEMAX = self descriptive
MINSPEED = self descriptive
MAXSPEED = self descriptive
TURNRATE =? Rate of missile turning?
EXTRAVIEW =? Range beyond conquered asteroids you can scroll to see?
ENEMYFACTIONSMIN = minimum number of enemy factions that spawn at start
ENEMYFACTIONSMAX = maximum number of enemy factions that spawn at start
BELTRADIUS = radius from the invisible center star the asteroid belt will form
BELTWIDTH = width of the belt (?make the same as BELTRADIUS for a cloud of asteroids rather than a ring?)
ASTEROIDS = number of asteroids spawned at start (?does this include scripted asteroids or are they in addition to this?)
MINASTEROIDSEPARATION = minimum distance between asteroids
STARTINGSEEDLINGS = starting seedlings for each of the enemy factions (unless otherwise scripted)
STARTINGSEEDLINGSPLAYER = starting seedlings for the player
MAXASTEROIDNEIGHBOURDIST =?maximum distance between asteroids? (shouldn’t be higher than MINSENDDISTANCE or you may have unreachable asteroids)
GRAYSPROBABILITY =? Percent probability of non-faction owned asteroids having neutral units MIN/MAX: 0(for none)/100(for all)
GRAYSMIN =? Minimum number of neutral units on spawned on an asteroid?
GRAYSMAX =? Maximum number of neutral units on spawned on an asteroid?
MUSIC = on (1) or off (0) can be changed in options menu
TOOLTIPTIME = ? time before tooltip shows up (in seconds) can be set in options menu
AUTOHIDE = on (1) or off (0) can be changed in options menu
FULLSCREEN= on (1) or off (0) can be changed in options menu
FONTSIZE =? Size of font for game messages?
PLAYERCOLOUR =? Set player color. Set this to change the choice the player made in the game’s main menu?
