Small joke. I know that's in there because PR added ESAI and Void added the whole stuff for us ai codders. He helped me much longtime ago.

The red marked ones having my attention.

1 or 2 of them will help me to get ammocache defense for Coop-Insurgency done via mapstrategies.

From TK

The first step is to create the strategic areas and their relations. Once this is done, I consider the different plausible scenarios of the map. Almost all maps will work well with a standard strategy that runs most of the time, one strategy if the team is dominating the map, and one strategy if the team is being dominated. This setup will make the map play decently in most circumstances. If this turns out to be too stiff and repetitive, it may be a good idea to add one or two more strategies for the normal situation on the map. These strategies aims to create situations where one team may concentrate on one flank, one spear head attack, or spread wide to try and capture badly defended areas. Once I know what I want to achieve, I write the strategies and add flags to the strategic areas so that I know that the strategies only will activate when I want them. The same thing goes for the modifiers. If I want the bots to attack a certain strategic area, I make sure that the flags for that strategic area are unique so that I can add modifiers that guarantee that that strategic area is the one with the highest temperature.
About Coop Insurgency, i cannot use ITFlags for the SA Layouts combined with mapstrategies to get the bots to the ammocache zones.

But i can use TTN modifiers in a mapstrategy with an ammocache-ai to increase the temperature of the specifiec SA where the ammocache spawned.

About ITCover:

The BF2 Developers said the ITCover behaviour isn't used anymore in BF2 but they asking themself why vehicles still having the codelines.

I believe it's still inside but no vanilla staticobject has an ai.template with any to tell the bots that it can be used as cover. Only one object, corrugated_fence_destroyable_part, has an ai template and when used and correctly navmeshed the bots will not jump anymore against that objects that isn't in destroyed condition.

And sorry Valmont for Hijacking your thread but you said you want learn to speak our language.

No vehicle model is used, and the bot can do a 360 around although the legs don't move when rotation left and right.

It's experimental as in there's technically 2 seats which is required otherwise the game crashes. I think I know the issue and i'll work on it again later.
Currently focusing on v1.6.
That is just AMAZING! I love how you managed to use vehicle code to achieve what would be a somewhat realistic defensive ai behavior! Can't wait to see it being further developed after 1.6!

Hey! I am learning a LOT and besides this forums belongs to you guys the DEVs! We mortals just enjoy your creations and mess things up!

And every three years we come up with some "actually useful" suggestions that you could use to make your creations even better!
