I've got several neutral entities and several enemy entities. They're all handled the same regardless of entity type, if the system detects that they're attacking, it plays the correct animation.

However, my neutral entities don't fight back, period. I've set various entity settings...

The ranges are correct, etc. Does anyone have a quick AI fix for me? Thanks!

Yeah. That's the object number of the entity being generated. It's reading the files from a script. It's correct, because the enemy entities have the correct attributes.

It would be nice if neutral entities could fight then you could use dark a.i in deathmatch scenarios where its every man for themselves

As far as I'm aware that's the case, I've been trying to think of a way around this for my w.i.p as I was going to have multiplayer and deathmatch is an essential feature, this may be a good feature request for Dark A.I??

Well, I can manually code the response, but I was hoping for an automatic behavior.

Neutral means just that... neutral. They dont fight like for NPCs and such. You'll probably have to switch it an enemy to get it to fight back.

I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do. ~Hal-9000

@ Zerk

Nope you just do what cash said and use manual control, I think the term neutral was being used to express an entity that is neither an enemy nor a friend, I think everybody is aware of what neutral means.

Okay, I've isolated the conditions in which an entity should attack another. Dumb question though, how can I just make one entity attack another? I can seem to find a command to do so. I could make the entity move toward the target and run the attack animation, but that won't account for each entity's unique attack range. I just want to say "Hey, 'AI Entity Attack Target'" or something. There are all kind of movement commands, defense commands, but I just want it to attack.

Any insight? I just hate dumb entities that mull about while they're getting attacked. And not all of them should run away either.

Quote: "if player = attacking me
set ai to none friendly
else
set ai to friendly
endif"


if entity = attacking me then entity is already enemy

if entity = neutral or entity = friendly then entity will never attack me

@ cash

I can't see anything in the doc's about this either because the ai get entity can fire requires that the entities be on opposing teams, the only command that may be of use is the ai get entity can see that takes into account the entities view arc/ range etc but not the attack distance,so this might have to be calculated manually???
