Hold Position for a certain time then resume?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

got a question about waypoints and "hold position", or something similar

 

 

 

For example:

 

A firetruck should go to a position that i choose with waypoints on an airbase when flight operations begin in the morning. It should for example go to waypoint 5, and stay there for, lets say 2 hours, then it should continue its waypoints to waypoint 8. (Driving back to the Airbase fire department for example)

 

 

 

How can i do this, if possible i wanne avoid trigger zones.

 

 

Thanks a lot

For any unit, you can give it tasks to perform as it reaches each waypoint .. use the task "Hold" until a certain time, like this:

It does what you want, without needing trigger zones. You can use the DUR field if you want to hold a certain amount of time rather than until a specific hour.

Thanks alot, i also figured out that if you set the speed to zero between 2 waypoints it will also work, the longer the distance between those 2 waypoints the longer it will take. but stop condition is way easier, the condition window is empty right, only hold and setting a time on stop position right?, will try it later. Thanks again

Yes, correct .. the Mission Editor is very powerful and thus at EACH waypoint you can get a Unit to do some task IF a condition is met; or UNTIL another condition gets true .. you can even use both conditions at the same time.

 

May I suggest this excellent ME Series by Suntsag ... I learned a lot there:
