  • You can limit turrets to only target objects from certain families. Just ensure that the family you're targeting contains objects with only the specific instance variable you want assigned.

  • What is it you are trying to achive? could you not just have two different enemys?

    If you want to do something different with those two different enemys you could just add them to a family.

    Can you explain how this would work? Can you assign objects to a family at runtime?

    It is for grouping object types. Not 100% sure on what you want to group with but for example you could assign all objects that have a specific instance variable set (e.g. EnemyType:Beast) and put them all in one family called 'Beasts'. Then you can set the turret to target only objects assigned to the 'Beast' family.

    Ok,

    I have this object, and during runtime it's Variable, "Type" was set to beast, how do I add that specific one to the Beast Family?

    I'm not sure you would need families then for that. If your object was imported as e.g. 'PLAYERMAN' you would just create a function : turret target 'PLAYERMAN' if variable type = beast.
