Sometimes, when the mapper tests his mission he puts in AI's to check that the AI can navigate without problems in the geometry. Sometimes the mapper sets the AI into team 0. Sometimes he forgets and uses notarget instead.

 

The AI often are forgotten in the map.

 

I was just testing my mission when I encountered this fellow:

Looks like he met some of the guys from the other team. I'd say there IS a more polite way to ask someone to keep their mouth shut that putting an arrow in it.... Why can't everybody just get along? ;)

 

Or maybe he was just using an arrow as a toothpick and happened to stumble? :P

Foolin' around. I was trying first to get an AI archer to attack a horse to no avail. Then I tried making an invisible platform bound to the horse so I could ride it. I just kept slipping off. Then I tried to get the horse to carry a ragdoll. It kept slipping off too until I tried func_spring. I got it almost working except that the ragdoll keeps having spasms, making it change positions...

Then I decided to try my decapitated ragdoll... it kept bouncing around too..

Some shots from The Builder's Influence - one of the guards in the first section seemed to vanish until I cautiously poked my head round the entrance to the generator area to see this:

(Actually - jus wanna say - amazing texture on the blackjack...) - but again, anyway, got upstairs and eventually came across this (: -

...kudos to the guy, being buried up his neck in tiled flooring didn't deter him in the least from carrying out his guardly duties - the s.o.b. managed to get a sword hit in on me....can't honestly remember what I did in response - must have killed him somehow (once I had finished laughing)...

Wow, I've never seen that before outside of characters getting out of bed. AI can just fall through the floor while patrolling??

IIRC (and I may not): -

i) I had water-arrowed the torch being carried by the guard in the cellar area.

ii) This had put him into high-alert and every attempt to blackjack him went horribly wrong, so I just crept round him to the guards' mess area where I remember there being a couple more guards who were quite easy to bj & hide.

iii) The first (torch-carrying) guard, however, seemed to have vanished, although I could still hear footsteps. Then I went into the generator area, and thought 'Oh - there he is'.

 

So I thought the guard had levitated rather dropped. Could have got that completely wrongity-wrong though. Still pretty much a TDM newbie.

 

I will say that I'm playing TDM on an ultra-cheapo laptop with Intel integrated graphics; from what I've seen on other threads, this contradicts most of the known laws of physics, so my silly screenshots are probably localised quantum fluctuations in the reality matrix which (if I keep on playing) will give rise to a wormhole in the spacetime continuum that will drag the planet into an alternative universe where dinosaurs and MACHINES and ALIENS engage in UNENDING BATTLE for THE SOUL OF MANKIND. Still, what can you do eh

OK - last one (for now, anyway - ai generally seem to be behaving themselves at the moment). This is a series of shots from the beginning of Sons of Baltona. No Photoshop trickery, scouts honour (I'm not clever enough) - the guard just seemed to touch the wall and shoot up on an invisible elevator.

post-9265-0-77823000-1330039848_thumb.jpg

I had done a quicksave just before this happened so I was able to go back and take screenshots, but then I overwrote it :( - however, I did go back and managed to get a saved game where the guard does something very similar on the other side of the entrance. It's too big to upload here (800KB zipped) so if someone did want to give it a try to see if the same thing happened on their system - erm, not sure what to do...pm me - ??? :unsure:

He's clipping into the wall & it's carrying him up. I saw the same thing a few days ago in Minecraft, where a squid in the water got close to a mountainside cliff wall and it lifted him straight up the side of the entire mountain! It was epic to watch.

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

I looked at simplen00b's savegame and Baltona has AAS areas up on top of those wall columns. So the guard was just walking from the one on the ground to its neighbor on top of the column, then back down again.

 

The AAS compiler needs to toss out areas like that. Future work.

 

Until then, flat surfaces AI shouldn't be walking on need to be monster_clipped. I think I'll post a new thread about this.

While testing my WIP, I managed to capture a rare RIT moment. This has not been set up. It just happened in the flux of the RIT randomness. The color may look a bit strange as I hastily added brightness to share this.

You all know the lone macho business is only an act. Sometimes the guys just need to sit down, out of sight, get into the correct mood with lighting and talk. Share their feelings, and get comfort from each other in the cruel world.

      Be honest: Who of you have actually finished Cuphead? This game is freaking tough! It might even be harder than Sekiro. Dark Souls is a joke in comparison to Cuphead! :-D

      Please, can we finally group the missions by year in the game menu?

      I vaguely recall someone recently complained about two-sided materials (curtains?) not getting lighting from both sides
      I just found a piece of code that's supposed to do just that
      Where was that discussed? (@nbohr1more?)

      I still play classic Doom (albeit with user-made mods and maps rather than the original campaign) on a regular basis. A game from the early 90's which has still got a healthy following in 2022. Pretty amazing.

      I'm beginning to understand why people who aren't into social clubbing "don't last long" on this project, and why it's so full of holes. When moderators are siding with bullies, by closing down threads that they derail, then I start to wonder if I should support the platform to begin with.
      I'm sure that the core development is solid, but when you're constantly tone policed and bullied, and moderators are playing into it too, then the project will just drive away talent, and replace it with socialites instead. ...and without talent, you only end up with a small skeleton crew trying to do everything themselves.
      ...so Dragofer and Airship Ballet, and all you other socialites, you win. From now on I'll just keep to myself. You'll never be able to do my work, but at least you'll be happy together, and that's what matters to you.
       
      Update
      Actually, I have to revise my statement:
      I actually messaged greebo - the top dog, I gather - about nbohr1more's outburst of insanity below, and since I haven't even heard back from him, I just have to assume that there's not a single core programmer here, who's not backing nbohr's threats. ...and that's bad.
      ...so if you're a newbie reading this, or an honest soul like ZergRush, then just slowly back out of these forums, run, and don't look back. This is nothing more than a cult posing as a game development project, using Thief and IDTech4 to sucker hopefuls in, to do work for them, while trying to cajole them into something going on behind the scenes, which apparently - according to nbohr - is something that should be hidden from the state. These people aren't programmers - they don't even understand things like how to fix the simplest bugs. All they have, is an engine, and an IP, and some sort of fascist social cult. There was some other project I saw being made in the Unreal Engine. Try joining that project. ...or start a project of your own. Anything but this asylum.
      Hopefully that was "divisive" enough for a final post, because at this point I really want people to leave this place. This project is, on a management level, just awful garbage, run by garbage people, apparently from the top down, and I'm just glad that they have a garbage place to stay, together, and hopefully forever.
