I enjoy it much when people make innovative stuff like this. Even if I don't use it, the outside-the-typical-CC-box attitude is A++.

You mean:
actor:AddAIMOWaypoint(redflag)
actor:AddAISceneWaypoint(greenflagarea:GetRandomPoint().X,greenflagarea:GetRandomPoint().Y)

The problem comes along of dropping and picking up the weapon.

Is the flag a pickable device? I'd suggest making it an unpickable object instead. Use an Actor if necesary, they wont become terrain atleast.

As for capturing, let the actor keep everything he has, including weapons he's holding and just make the flag follow the actor by teleporting to his coordinates each frame. Foolproof.

Why?
What's wrong with a pickable flag?

Uhhh...
Anyway, the main problem is that they will turn to terrain more easily.

Damm spell check.

Anyway, that's just a minor irratation, as the flag spawns back.
A fix would be to make it out of something really weak, or to have it force unsettle.

You cant use guns and you need more code involving with messing the actors inventory.
The method I suggested would be more cleaner, simple and allow to use guns like you could in the original game.

Code messing with actor inventory is in.
You can switch to another weapon.

But dont you think it makes it akward?
And is the flag visible if the actor changes the weapon? Having the flag just follow you will do that too.

Arrows do the trick, and the detection code is perfected.

Nice work, to bad I can't play with anyone... I prefer the old bases, they were bigger and a lot more interesting.


To be honest I liked them better as well, but I wanted this to be more "true to form" than original. And Scenewise it's almost a perfect copy. As perfect as I can get 2D-wise anyway.

And about the flag, all I'd like it to do is stay upright when it's in the base. The current behavior of them is good for now. When there's a better way to remove the flag from the actor when he captures instead of dropping it, we can implement it then.

Actually a simple lua script on the flag might do the job, now that I think of it.:
Code:
function Update(self)
self.RotAngle = 0
self.AngularVel = 0
end

no, i dont, i mean proper AI that does what its meant to. and it would probably track the position of anyone with the flag, not just the flag. there would obviously be AIWaypoint action going on, but not to such a simple degree.

An AI element would be awesome. If only there was online function, this would be a top favorite of mine to play against you all.
