RELEASE - Mission Prometheus need Help plz :)
hi there,

this is my first mission. The problems are:

At the beginning of the mission there is a Battlestar and 30 sec after a freighter explode the basestar jumps in. Thats ok so far. Both Capships should move with a speed of 10 and follow the waypoints and should shoot at each other. The Basestar does it. The Battlestar do it not.

The Battlestar should moving with a speed of 10 but it ignores the commands given in the event editor. It runs with full speed and attack the basestar. What did i wrong?

The 2nd thing is at the start.

I use a joystick. If i set the thrust of my stick to full or "swing the stick to the left" before the mission beginns the ship slides into the tube or slides "left" into the tube.



thx for your help :)


Mercer

Re: Mission Prometheus need Help plz :)
what's the battlestars priority on attacking targets?  do you have an initial behavior set?

try upping the priority of your sexp (the battlestar's orders that it's not following) to 100+ and see what that does

is your mission available for D/L ?

The second problem is a well known issue for the Diaspora team. We solved it in the end by making the ship immobile from the ships editor at the start of the mission. The  problem only exists for the first split second the game is running and is probably due to the joystick getting polled before the SEXP system can come along and turn off all that sort of stuff.

In the case of the first one, you must be giving the battlestar orders to attack the baseship. Battlestars will not move off the spot to attack something without orders. Check both the events in the mission and the initial orders of the battlestar.

Re: Mission Prometheus need Help plz :)
@Cerebus i attached the mission.

in the Event editor it looks like this

when
          event is true delay
              BasestarArrive
              10
          add goal
          Athena(its the name of the Battlestar)
              ai waypoints once
               waypoint athena
                80
          cap waypoint speed
          athena
          10
          add goal
           athena
            ai chase
            Basestar245
            89           

thats the same code i uses for the basestar, only the waypoint differ. If i change the Goal priority at the waypoint to 89 and the ai chase to 80 the battlestar dident use its main guns (i looks like that).

In the Initial Orders i dident have any entry for both ships.

@Karajorma

in the ships editor the velocity is set to 0

Well you're giving two orders at the same time, one with a higher priority than the other. Obviously the AI is going to follow the higher priority one.

When you give several orders to the AI, it doesn't just gently follow them in the order they are given.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

you problem is
add goal
           athena
           ai chase
           Basestar245
this is an instruction for the ship, in this case the battlestar to close and follow the target ship  and if on the opposing team attack it.  in a waypoint scripted mission this is unnecessary as any ship will shoot at any ship on the opposing team with any valid weapon they have unless given the ignore command. 
All that needs to be done is instruct both ships to use their respective ways paths and they will automatically shoot at each other when in range

I think we're going to need to see the mission then. If the battlestar isn't using its guns the only reason I can think of is that you told it not to.

Re: Mission Prometheus need Help plz :)
i ´ve played a bit around with the events... without aichase deleted waypoints added new waypoints... and so on. The "Main" guns from the Battlestar did not fire. The smaller turrets and the AA turrests fire like hell but the mainguns did not one shot :/ did anybody have a solution?

Or is there a way to post the events i´ve made in Fred ?

Re: Mission Prometheus need Help plz :)
then give orders to the turrets to do so specifically.  the front cannons are 1-6, main cannons 1-26

VPView is good to get so you can reference things like that
