What did Bungie ever do to you? Image

On a side note, why does the shocked smiley look different when posted as it does in the smiley menu?

They used the same thing in Global Agenda, although not sure when that came into play.

Update, I made holograms in my mod, using AI instead of grenades.

I found out that if you mount items without actually given them, the bot will stand there looking like a real player but won't shoot at anyone (because they have no ammo), but more importantly, when they die, they don't drop any items, either...

In my code, I get the mounted item from each slot on the player, and mount the same item on the bot, without increasing item counts... This means the bot has the same armor, same weapon, same pack, and even carries a flag, if the player had one, but when it dies, it falls down gripping these items instead of dropping them. So you can't pick them up and get an extra flag, or more ammo, or anything like that.

However, I still need to code explosions into their deaths, so they have some practical purpose other than distraction, and I'd like to see them actually walk around a bit, so I need to code waypoints for them. Not sure where to derive the waypoints from, though... Maybe just random.

If your still looking for code/ideas for this i did something very similar for the newer version of firesiege with AI tracking etc, you could use it if you want too.. I'm not.
