Spell targeting problems

Reported by: nckmccnnll Owned by:
Milestone: 4.2 Keywords:


"Druids' Lightning Strike has hilariously broken targeting mechanics- it ignores both range and LOS.

Why settle for a hockeystick when you can randomly bombard the far end of the map?

Also, Meteor Swarm isn't hitting monsters is it targeted through, so you cant get the kill-and-keep-going effect unless you fire cardinal directions. " - kaypy

Also: "Targeting for breathe cones is definitely out. I some how didn't hit Sauron with Rivers of lightning despite him being marked as in Sight in the monster window. Get a lot of "it breathes" messages where I'm not being hit too" - wobbly

Well, hacked to work. Really there needs to be proper handling of chains of effects with the same target.

Proper chaining of effects done in 9d149f84e, which fixes Lightning Strike and Meteor Swarm.

The River of Lightning problem looks like an issue where narrow cones skip some grids; I think the project() function needs to select its blast grids more carefully.
