Monsters in multiplayer

Post by esequiel14 »

Does anybody knows how to make monsters appear in multiplayer? i know how to make bots appear in multiplayer but monsters how? anybody knows the coding?

it would be cool playing water wars mode in multiplayer with some monsters living in the map attacking both teams.

ja ja ja you are funny well if i do it your way do you know how do i make the bots spawn in a certain location when i load the map? and by doing that i would have to make the whole sandbox comunity replace their bot model with a monster model, any other way to put monsters in multiplayer?

If it is in RPG mode point your mouse at the place you want the NPC to spawn to and type in "/spawn" without the quotes. In normal mode, well, i don't know, but there was a tutorial somewhere on youtube for that.

hi,

bots are the multiplayer verson of monsters. only fighting/shooting was removed from the bot ai, so it has to be added for water wars again. it should also not a big problem to add the abilitiy to attack both teams. monsters will never work in multiplayer. bots are clients b its own, so they can connect to a server in multiplayer.

Cant you understand??? What I and offtools just said. We said that if you want to make monsters work in multiplayer you need to create a bot (you dont have to replace the original bot you can create a new bot class so to say) and make it look the way you want... Then bots AI can be coded so that it will work just the way YOU want. But you have to do it YOURSELF since everyone wants sth specific for their game.
So read through the comments you get before you start to tell they are rubbish. If you think that advice you get from smarter people is rubbish, then why do you even bother posting in the forums?
