Carnage (Sandbox Activity)

Carnage is a sandbox activity, inspired by Weegee's Weapon Test and Luringen's Firing Range scenes, but with a more sandbox feel to it, rather than just a testing scene. It's got a bunch of options, items and settings with which you can do anything you want.

The Controls:
Space: randomises the team of all units
B: go into edit mode
K: kill all units
numpad 0: save all the units of the red team, press it again to load them.
numpad 1: save all the units of the green team, press it again to load them.
numpad 2: save all the units of the blue team, press it again to load them.
numpad 3: save all the units of the yellow team, press it again to load them.
del: reset all settings and reload scripts

The Menu:
One of Weegee's excellent menu's controls a bunch of options. Press up/down to change selected option, press left/right to change the option.

The Items:
All of the items are found under Carnage Items in the buy menu.

Controller: The controller for the menu. You need one of these to control the options.
Red/green/blue/yellow paint bombs(not pictured in the screen): drop these on units to change their team to red/green/blue/yellow.
Red/green/blue/yellow brains: buy these if you want extra brains as targets.
Red/green/blue/yellow cloning tubes: Cloning tubes controlled by the menu.
Red/green/blue/yellow beacons: buy these to set waypoints for specific teams, don't forget to set the AI mode to GoTo!
Red/green/blue/yellow dropzones: buy these to control where friendly/enemy reinforcements get dropped.
Red/green/blue/yellow tech select: Drop these ontop of units to set the tech of the red/green/blue/yellow team. Drop these somewhere away from units to set the tech to random.

The Map:
The activity can be played on any map, and there's also 1 map(the one in the previews) included, you can find it just a bit to the left and down of the Fredeleigh Plains. if you're not playing the included map, the first thing you should do is buy and place a controller (found under Carnage Items in the building menu), to get access to the options menu.

Very big thank you too:
DataRealms: For Cortex Command, and all the base code and sprites that went into making this.
Weegee: For his letter sprites, function library, without which the menu wouldn't exist, and his GetInventory function.
Luringen: For his Firing Range scene, which I used for reference and inspiration.
Mehman: For his ToKey function
Bad Boy: For answering my lua questions, especially in the matter of tables, without which this mod wouldn't exist.
Arcalane, p3lb0x, Abdul Alhazred, Foa and CaveCricket48: For answering various lua questions of mine.

Hi can you also make a mod similar to this that lets you have these options on any game mode like 'campaign' or 'Skirmish' (Basically a cheat one).

Tip: A tool or weapon that gives you this options like how other modders does.

If its too hard atleast the "Go to edit mode" only, really need this because selecting one modded faction on campaign that I specifically liked has limited stuff on it that you'll need the other factions weps and actors to die and get what they drop. And on the skirmish, well, when you built an awesome base then 10 min later only the brain bunker is left.

(What I'm asking is similar to what you can do on the 'Wave Mode' that allows you to go to 'edit mode' after a certain wave. this time we want to be able to do it anytime with just a click of a button)

I just gave it a try, everything seems to be working. Just press b and it should be among the list.

P.S. @Darkfighter6x:if you refresh the workshop page you will (i think) have it

@Darkfighter6x:if you subscribe to the map on the maps page if you go back to the workshop using the back button the map may not be subscribed (i had not seen it for myself) so yeh its that
