Re: locals not spawning ingame what am i missing in my lua ?

I can't see the problem is in the mission lua. The most likely problem is that the map KOR doesn't have the initial teams for the CPs set how you want to them. The proper way to fix it is to open the map in ZeroEditor and set all the CPs to have the team you want at the start of a game. There are probably more detailed explanations around in the ZeroEditor section of the sticky.

But, since I've never done any map making and I know ZeroEditor takes some messing around with to even get working, I also know an alternative lua solution. Put this at the bottom of ScripPostLoad() and you can use it overrule the map's settings and set up which command posts belong to which teams:
Code: Select all
SetProperty (cp1, "Team", ATT)
SetProperty (cp2, "Team", ATT)
SetProperty (cp3, "Team", 3)
SetProperty (cp4, "Team", 4)
SetProperty (cp5, "Team", 3)
SetProperty (cp6, "Team", DEF)
SetProperty (cp7, "Team", DEF)

You can also delete CPs with KillObject(cp1), bring them back with RespawnObject(cp1), make them invisible with SetProperty(cp1, "hideCPs", true), or make them impossible to capture by removing the capture region with SetProperty(cp1, "CaptureRegion", 0). To give the capture region back you need to know what the region is called, and I don't remember if removing a capture region uses 0 or "0" tbh, but it's one of those two. Best examples of this stuff is in campain mission lua like Coruscant. The lua stuff's designed for changing CP properties mid mission more than setting them up, but if it works it works.
