Flag: TurretAnim
File(s): rules(md).ini
Values: Strings: Normal text. (Limited to: Animations)
Applicable to: BuildingTypes

This flag should be set to the animation to be rendered as a turret on this building type. The turret animation can be of three types:

Voxel Turret

To render a voxel turret on a building, simply put the voxel's file name into the TurretAnim input and give the building the additional tag TurretAnimIsVoxel=true; the game will render the voxel directly onto the building without a need for a corresponding art(md).ini entry.

SHP Turret

Turret shape orientation should start from the ▲ direction and rotate counter-clockwise, like in this example.
To render a turret shape on a building, list the .shp animation entry in the TurretAnim input and see that TurretAnimIsVoxel=false; the game will expect that the turret animation has an art(md).ini entry. Turret shapes should have 32 frames and can have shadow frames, which unlike .shp-based vehicles turrets, do animate their shadows.

It will also need these:


Charge Animation

Here the turret logic has been "hijacked" for a special purpose. If the building has no turret (Turret=no) but has a valid TurretAnim entry and a primary weapon with Charges=yes, then this animation is used for the weapon charge-up animation. When the building acquires a target, this animation will play before the weapon can actually fire. An example of this is the Obelisk of Light in Tiberian Sun. Use TurretChargeAnimRate to specify the animation speed.
