Hello brave developers.

I'm proposing a widget for the behemot (and artillery). I play chickens a lot and sometimes, when diggers appear, the behe have this tendencies to shot three shells in your base when diggers appear. I bet this is also happening in team games with scythe for example...
So my proposal is to make a widget for arti, which will force the turret to aim only at units between a settable angle.

Is it doable ? I can try to make it myself but idk from where to start to make script for zerok.

Perhaps repeat + area-attack might work

Afaict area-attack is resolved into individual attack orders before even reaching other clients.

As in, you can't queue or repeat it.

That is very easy to code.
If widget supports AllowWeaponTarget that is.
Simply checking if AttackerID is artillery and return "false,1", if targetID is inside of any anti-artillery circles.

Widgets are not going to support AllowWeaponTarget. That would be a very expensive callin to ferry back and forth between widget and gadget land.

This sounds quite hard to do as a widget. Maybe someone could generalize the Keep Target command in a way with little extra performance impact. It may be able to have an area mode.
