thanks! that helped a whole lot. i got another question tho, i'm trying to script ally behavior myself but i don't know what to refer the enemies as in the code. I can probably figure out the rest on my own and once again thanks!

oh and also, i don't know which animations are which when the example you showed me said "animation=5" or something like that. i get how state works and "if then" statements but i don't get which animations are which and how to gauge distance in units. how big are the units anyway? are they like one square in the editor for each unit? anyway, that's what's confusing me.

at the back of the manual there are a list of animations and their related anim numbers. I'm not too sure about the distance thing, sorry.

I believe 100 FPSC units = 1 tile though I may be incorrect.

Yep, 1 tile is 100 FPSC units and, from my calcs, 1 FPSC unit = 1 inch.

Best regards

looks at jason.
PLEASE DO SOME MATH.

100inch = 8 feet 4 inch.
Is a desk that long? A door that wide?

It is more likely to be in Metrics, although the models aren't all to scale. It gets really annoying repeating that same simple fact. So please do the math before assuming. Although it may be 1.5 meters instead of 1.

@Merranvo

Quote: "100inch = 8 feet 4 inch."

Yes, it does. Well done.

Quote: "Is a desk that long? A door that wide?"

I never said that a door was that wide. I said that one FPSC tile
was that wide. For your reference, 2.5 doors are that wide...

See, 2.5 doors fit 1 FPSC tile (100 inches or 8ft 4"). That would
make each door 40inches wide or 3ft 4". Seems fair to me. FPSC does
have rather wide doors.

Here's another one...

1 bed covers approximately 4/5th's of a tile. That would be 80 inches
or 6ft 8". Once again, seems like a fair size for a bed.

Quote: "Although it may be 1.5 meters..."


So you're saying that each of those doors is less than 2ft wide and
the bed is less than 4ft long?

Quote: "It gets really annoying repeating that same simple fact. So please do the math before assuming."

Like I said in another post, I've done the maths and have the calcs
to prove it. It would appear that you haven't. That seems to be the
only "simple fact" here.

There is the simple fact that this has been debated before (and before, and before), and it came out as 1.5 meters.

Your argument is double flawed, you say the door is 3 4 and 8 4 high. Although the 5 feet of 1.5 meters isn't practical either.

If you look at the other models, you will SEE that they aren't to any particular scale. To a kind of look like scale, but no real scale.

I also argue that TGC is not american, so American units are out. Heck, even most modern games use Metrics instead of miles.

Yep, it has been debated before. For instance in this thread here:-
http://forum.thegamecreators.com/.?m=forum_view&t=48305&b=21

Please note the comments of SoulMan on 14th Feb 2005...
Quote: "Actually, it's dx units. I am not sure what the conversion is, but think of it this way. A player is 72 Dx units tall. That should be about 6 feet tall."

72 Dx units = 6ft? Well that sounds a lot like 72 inches to me.
Basically proving my argument that 1 unit is 1 inch.

This thread...
http://forum.thegamecreators.com/?m=forum_view&t=49816&b=24
also covers it. Some people agree with my 100 inches theory whilst
TGC Lead 3D artist "Simon" claims
Quote: "1 Segment = 100 units x 100 units x 100 units = 3metres x 3metres x 3metres"

Personally I did the calcs and found that 3 metres was just too
big. 100 inches is 2.54metres and seems just that bit more realistic.

I do agree with you though when you say that not all the models
are made to a set scale. That's why I always preach about using
all custom models to get a consistent look rather than mixing
and matching models from different sources.

We Call Thee
Tell us the unit
How we must use it
Don't let them refuse it,
for because of it's power,
some have misused it,
we now call on you,
and though we are few,
we commence praising you.

So please set us straight,
please erase the slate,
which holds all our,
and thus seals our fate.

So now we offer unto you,
A sacrifice that is nice.
Since Merrenvo has caused this,
by way of his iron fist,
we give you his head,
and thus send him to eternal bed.

We prey for forgivness,
for slowing your business,
but please, this must be done,
or making games with FPSC W-O-N-T be fun!

Lol, thats just something I came up with, and no, this is NOT against Merrenvo, and I'm NOT saying that he's wrong in this debate. His name just fit the rhyme.

When FPSC develops enough, lets make a Redwall game!
