Default 2 small problems ....

ok uhm ... just run into 2 small problems while on my latest map.

1) When I use the Nebula ship from the Vehicle list it comes up with a small texture misalignment ... at the bottom of it's saucer section there are stripes and the texture for the naccells yet the rest of the ship is ok ... could this be because I increased the scale?

and ...

2) I have placed character on my map but I want them to just STAND STILL and yet even without any animation they start to walk around with a gun ... but this only happens for some of my models and not the other. Do I have to bind them to their origin through scripting ... and whatever I try they will always spawn with a gun ... even if I have given them an idle animation of shutting up and sitting down!

1) if the texture thing is just in uber, dont worry itll show up in game.

2)you need to script the player, turn of the ai i think, well check out brush barons tutorials in the post at the top.

oh no no no ... I don't mean that the "no texture" texture is coming up ... it is definatly a misalignment that occures when it is in game. I can assure you that it is a misalignment because it is obvious that the naccell (obvious spelling mistake) texture on the underside of the saucer ... I'll see if I can upload a pic .. and it is ingame.

Oh and just a tiny scripting question ... is "animateloop" a correct term or is it just "animate" ... I suppose I could just punch it in and see what happens.

Errr... ok neither of those tags worked ... is there a list somewhere of all the commands we can use in our scripting?

basically the best way to learn, is look at the tutorials and open up the script files for ef2, you should start off with the training level.

and yes upload a pic then.

ok heres the pic


I actually managed to get the scripting working and my people to stand still ... it was a small clash between the animation in the script and the animation in their properties.

Happenss to every Nebula class ship i spawn.... i think no one ever bothered to add an underside to it, because it probabally doesnt show in-game

hmmm turning AI off doesn't seem to do much with my guys ... I wonder how hard it is to make them just models ... can't be that difficult surely ... as for the Nebula thing ... I'm sure I can cover it up.

UHm ... ok I need a way to remove their weapons ... I have got all their animations working but they still hold the weapons ... I could snoop about in the Romulan installation codes because one of the models I am using is Gonzales in his Romulan suit ... and he certainly didn't have a gun then.

you could check the shader for it or something, look for the bottom texture along with the othe nebula textures in the pk3s.
