I am currently working on the ACB overhaul, it is going well.
It will have a few more features:
- AND capability (several ACBs next to each other will be able to work as one)
- Conditions will have min and max custom values, so there will be about twice less conditions
- Invert condition capability, it will be possible to activate an ACB if there are no enemies closer than 2000m for example
- Text pattern search in order to select the blocks to activate using their name (so, more block types will have a customizable name, not only the MainFrame)
- Custom priority in order to have some control on the execution order of the ACBs
- Expandable categories for the conditions and the types of blocks (the first 2 columns), so it will be possible to have a lot more of them without being lost in a too long toggles list

In addition, multiple modders should be able to add conditions, blocks or actions to the ACB very easily.

For now I do not intent to add new conditions, blocks or actions.
The current work aims to expand the general features of the ACB while still keeping it extra-easy to use, and to prepare the GUI and the code to expand the number of conditions, blocks and actions.


Of course, as the changes to the ACB are extensive, it will have to go through some intensive devtest.
I don't know when it will be released, but do not expect it before the end of the month.

I intend to have all the existing blueprints compatible with the new system so nothing should break (that will have to be checked in devtest), but it will not be backward compatible.
That means that a blueprint saved with the new ACB system will not be compatible with any previous FtD version (in fact, it will work, but all the ACBs will lose their configuration...).
So, if you use older versions of FtD you will have to be careful with your blueprints.
So Far So Good
