HAY BETA TESTERS
overwrite your BW.rte/maps directory with my one and then you can place respawn points >:D
obviously not done yet but works well, i just need to give the spawned guys better instructions.
now im at school rather than rushing out the door to get here i can post some real info. basically, its an area that spawns mercenaries of either red or green team. they have a random weapon. theres a little bit of smoke when they spawn, for kicks. the spawnpoint gives them random instructions that are either "follow a random actor on the map!", "go to a random point on the map!" or "patrol here now!", all of which are pretty crappy but whatever. sadly, it works better on the horizontal maps due to the AI being pretty shitty at jetting still. i'll make a "win/lose" script for when your entire team is dead or something soon. for now, just enjoy not having limitless enemies falling from the sky, and instead having limitless enemies spawning from little panels in the wall. and being able to spawn allies, thats handy too.
if someone makes some good AI scripts for the mercs i can take the instructions out and just have them do their thing, but for now they're just pretty dumb.. <_<
this prevented me from making any headway on my competition entry again yesterday.. goddamnit.

Have you seen the lua files of PrisonEscape.rte, it has the coding necessary to allow you to enter the healer* and exit it without losing weapons.
The way you do it is by assigning cookies to the weapons, and if you could auto-assign cookies, you'd be able to use it with any weapon, or actor.

* The healer function like your reconstructer, it draws them in and replaces them.

There isn't a way to cycle through an actor's inventory without glitches, currently, so I'm leaving the way it is. Once we get that function, there will probably be something like that.


Something tells me that the ability to keep the inventory is exclusive to prison escape.

I intended it to remove guns that enter it. Its designed that way.
Its a tactical feature and makes the player think twice before going in to heal up.

yeah no all it means is that they're going to use someone else's healer that gives back weapons

I found out that playing with vanilla content against these with death in concrete pit is pretty hard. My record is 20 kills.

I like concrete pit, shows how good the AI is on Death... how good it is at killing itself by dropping actors on the actors that are try to dig through to my brain. :sad:

And only brainbot plus any weapons/equipment you need.
Hit start and survive as long as you can.

Its a survival map.
