I've been working on some RITs for AI to do....this one is activated by def_attaching a new prop quill, which triggers the following behaviour for sitting AI:

The height works for both regular desks and scribe desks, though it's a bit high for regular tables.

 

Heh Arcturus also did up a custom animation for writing for the accountant 2.

 

I could send it to you if you wanted, maybe there could be alternative ways to write that the mapper could choose

Very cool. It would be a bit better if you could have them "dip" the Quill into ink, tho. As it is, it looks quite repeating.

 

Edit: Oh, and they write way too fast. Writing on very expensive parchment or leather skin is a slow, careful task, to avoid errors and have a clean image. It's not a fast "lets scribble something with a pen" we are used to nowadays :)

In addition to Tels comment above, have you tried using the sit and rotate method to get them to sit closer the desk and more centralised on the chair...?

 

Is this in SVN atm, so I can knock up a test map to show you what I mean. Also what arg is used to define writing on a flat desk and a angled one..?

I did use the rotate method, but I didn't spend much time trying to position them precisely for the video.

There isn't one. You just def_attach the new prop quill and everything else happens automatically. I think it's on SVN already, but not the final version, which I will upload tonight.

Why, it's quite accurate. I had a chest like that long ago and it had wood just like that.


I always assumed I'd taste like boot leather.

Most TDM textures look strange in bright light. In a dark setting it should look better. :)

- models/darkmod/kitchen/wine_bottles_02.ase (while your here etc)

I can't open .ase files. I did offer to do the same thing in .lwo though.
