scripting - ship waypoints?


Recommended Posts

Hi, anybody know how to change the direction of travel for a ship e.g. in a trigger?



Ships don't seem to have "Switch Waypoint" or "Goto Waypoint" commands.



Can waypoints for ships be created or moved via lua scripts?

Yes, I would love to know the answer to this as well! In order to have my ships go around like my fuelers do, I have to build a million way points. I really would like to see the "switch waypoint" added to boats

You can't do this in a trigger with the ships. There are few tricks though you can do with scripting (e.g. MIST). For example. around the initial point you create a small zone and when the ship enters that particular zone, you destroy the group and then respawn it every time. I haven't tried it but I don't see why it shouldn't work. Another trick is to create again some small zones around your intended waypoints and then use mist.groupToPoint everytime the ship hits a particular zone. It is not very easy but definitely doable.
