Pushing Critters Around

Post by Lou »

Hi,
We have just placed our critters on the map and by accident discovered that when in the game if you bump into them
you can push them around the map. How would I go about locking them in place? They are not meant to follow a waypoint.
Regards,
Lou

just a dumb guess, maybe you can put just one waypoint down?

Thanks for the idea, but trying to get a way point in a tiny area is tough. However, the Location Entity
maybe that would do the trick? I placed it down on top of where my critter spawn is, and made the radius small.
But how do I tie the location entity to the critter, I need to place a bunch of these. There is no Location sub folder.
Is there a command I place in the critter .cfg that points to use the location tag?
Thanks,
Lou

I was messing around with the obstacles and found that it uses this command:

Code: Select all

r_obstacle_flags $OBS_STATIONARY


Can I use the same type of thing with a critter to keep them from moving?

I know its a little late, but just so there's an answer for it when people read it..

that would work and you could always use

Code: Select all

r_obstacle_script <script #>
if you want them to do a specific action, but you'd have to do it in the "obstacles" folder and not in the "critters" folder

Hey! Thanks for posting. There was no resolution to this so your ideas are most welcome.
I need something for a critter not an object. I was also thinking that if there was some type of mass
associated with the critter then that may also help to keep them in place.....

Yea that solution would work fine for npc use.. But if you mean "critter" as an enemy then it wouldnt be effective.. Just depends on what your use for it is.
