Making tanks just roam around

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to put a tank in a city/town and just have it wander around and maybe try to kill you if it sees you? Or does it require 1001 waypoints?

 

Thank you. :)

They need waypoints to drive around - the logic just isn't that sophisticated yet to search among structures etc.

That said, you could easily (with a bit of time) devise randomized behavior that would make the tank's route completely unpredictable and cover as much

of the town as you wished.

Hmmm.... I guess I'll try to try that. At least I'll try to try to try that.

You basically need to put random generators (2x, 3x, 4x etc) between waypoints/routes.

So at some point in your waypoint chain, say an intersection you'll NOT connect that waypoint to the next waypoint, but to a random generator instead.

Then each output of that generator will connect to a different route. You can make this as complex as you want and convoluted as you want, and the person

playing it would experience seemingly autonomous behavior.

And the flibbergatz connects to the whoozit pump? :huh:

 

I'll try that out, assuming I can understand it. Thanks again.

 

No Tank Crew for you?

Gimme a sec I'll take a screenie

 

In on the Right, out on the LEFT X3.

Each to a different route.

 

You can download this generator from JimTM's link.

I can make a simple demo mission later - no time right this sec.

The topic "Randomly Choose an Event to Trigger" on pg. 103 of the editor manual may help you understand better what Gambit21 is referring to. The topic includes an example showing how to send an He111 on a random route. The "random switch" (aka random generator) referenced in the topic is available in the sample missions and groups (available where you get the manual).

Man, you are just off the charts with your videos. Your last video really helped a lot. 

 

Seems a little inadequate to just say thanks... but thanks. :drinks:
