From waypoint to waypoint?

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • Can't seem to get this to work. I'm trying to make an object go to a certain spot on the map but first it goes to several other parts. I tried:

    If [condition],then go to waypointA

    -->on arrived at a waypoint, then go to waypointB

    --->on arrived at a waypoint, then go to waypointC

    etc.

    But what happens is that it seems to circle around waypointA only which means, it not going pass the other 2 sub events.

  • If you want it to go to a set list of waypoints, use "Add waypoint at" several times, such as:

    Start of layout:

    • Add waypoint at 53,200
    • Add waypoint at 125,180
    • Add waypoint at 100,150

    If you want it to go to one spot, ignoring all the waypoints you've set previously, use one of the RTS "Move to" variants.

    At least I assume that should work. The "Add waypoint at mouse" and "Move to mouse" actions worked this way.

    (I.e., on left click: Add waypoint at mouse. On right click: Move to mouse.)

    Events only cover one tick. In other words you cant give it more than one place to go in one tick. You'll have to add separate events, with a specific trigger for each waypoint. You might even consider the timer behavior, or timeline object.... function perhaps.

  • Hmm I'm a bit confused though. I was thinking, would it be an alternative if I make invisible dots in a layout and name them with something like "pointA". and use those dots rather than waypoints?

    I'm also confused, are you still thinking of using rts behavior?

    Also, why are you asking this? It's up to you to determine if it's an alternative solution. It depends on what you want.

  • Yeah I guess, but I'm just asking opinions cuz I might do something unresourceful again. So yeah.

    About the rts behavior, I'm still using it.

    Like if an object needs to go to waypoint C, it needs to go to waypoint A and B first.

    Ex.

    If waypointA is overlapped, then go to waypointB

    If waypointB is overlapped, then go to waypointC.

    This would give them a little accuracy on where to go. Cuz if I just let go directly to waypointC, it might go on a different route everytime it needs to go there.

  • Strange. I found "add waypoint at mouse" works, it will queue them up, but it doesn't work if I do "add waypoint at object" a few times in a row, each time with a different sprite. Same with "add waypoint at position". It just doesn't move. I assumed the example I gave would work, sorry.
