Building Rotator for RE 1.03

Post by murdilator » Sat Jul 24, 2010 1:42 pm

See the title. There has been a building rotator out for TAD for a while, and it is compatible with ES online. The previous ones could work with FP as well. It is kinda cool and I used to have it.

EDIT: FIXED LINK:

I hope that many of you will enjoy this - it allows rotation just as in the scenario editor.

One question! Won't Aloysius go on a "Hammer of Justice!" rampage and ban people with the rotator?

Hmmm....He might if people report it. But we would have to ask him personally first. It might be worthwhile.

The doubt is because you can't rotate the buildings without the said add-on, which brings a little advantage over people who don't have the add-on. There was a similar issue with an add-on that allowed you to zoom out more than usual.

Solus and ES have made it clear a long time ago that they're fine, it's ok to use them.

That then makes Rotators safe to use then. It not that much of a cheat because the game lets you rotator your camera anyway.

Not just the camera. A dutch base is much more efficient with the building rotator, Alwasim uses it. Getting the banks in diamond shape makes the pathing harder. I wouldn't ban people for it, but Aloysius is hard to figure out.

I agree that you would definetly need permission. I have played vs. alwasim and it pissed me right off every time he used it. A complete unfair advantage.

Lisbon is right though, Aloysius is an odd entity. His banstick might become erect, or perhaps it will remain limp is in the wind... who knows...

It's just modding the game files. If a building rotator is illegal, then so is a fan patch, which RE openly supports. I'd assume its fine to use. ;)

Or they could put it in their next patch to fix everything ;). People would actually be excited again, lol. It is just as in the scenario editor.

I have tried the building rotator but never really liked it, so i think its personal preference if you use it or not. And lol, why ban ppl for rotating a building xD

Look at the date, Posted on 01/06/06 @ 09:39 AM.

The Mod was posted for 1.03 Nilla, not TAD.

I have fixed the link and found the real link to what I am talking of:


http://aoe3.heavengames.com/downloads/s ... ileid=1932


This was updated, so no wonder I did not see it. It is compatible with all game versions and will not cause CRC mismatch. To test it, I myself should probably try the first go. However, switch from FP to RE may cause it to revert back to normal; idk.
