I’m writing my first 3D game in Panda3D.
My game’s main character uses a Roaming Ralph like control, and my AI character uses the same control, except he’s not getting insturctions from the keyboard, but rather randomly.
I would like to make my AI character follow the main character. Anyone has an idea how to do such a thing?
I tried messing with slopes and positions, but I was unlucky. The thing is, since the movement is set by the current model.getH() value, I don’t know when to stop my model from turnning around and start moving forward.
Thanks in advance guys
Have you tried just measuring the distance between the two characters so that the NPC maintains that distance? I dont think I would try and have him obey the key commands sent to the main actor. Rather I would just have him check if the actor moves and follows him.
Then just just for collisions with solids and adjust position.
Also search the forums there is a code written that uses multi party movement for multiple character control. I don’t remember what the name of it was though.
P_agony, download, run and study the code you’ll find here - that’s all you need
Thanks guys for you help!
