of course you would never leave your mates....but these are ai. if you help them you will die, they can't give you a real help as humans can, you end wet nurse them, not to help them.
also, the mistakes ai can do are sometimes more unpredictable than the humans' ones..


Actually enchanced AI are more then formidable against enemies, especially the marine snipers, which almost never miss. But they do limit the amount of "tactics" you would normally use on an enemy

Most likely yes. Only if you have 512 megs of ram. If you have more than that. You are good.

so if you have even a semi old PC, you should be okay as long as you have some upgraded graphics cards and such.

Also, Lod3x, have you taught the marines how to fight as if they were a real fighting force and not like the morons from Alien 2? for example, do they know how to use cover and retreat when its obvious they should? I mean its no use buffing them up if you have to use yourself as a human shield because they constantly go in the middle of No mans land and fire at the largest contingent.

Agreed. But I don't think it's possible to re-script the AI entirely.

I'm pretty sure he's made the AI seem much more intelligent. Making them dive for cover, and not panic is a very easy thing to do. I myself have done that, to make Marines actually worth buying in my Firefight map.

have you fixed the ai driving scorpion tank problem?
like will the marines limit themselves to only shooting or only driving? or do they do both?
last time i checked the ai dont know the difference between the tank treads and the cannon.

Speaking of lag, it looks like your map will have lots of death and destruction. You should put in a garbage collect script that continuously collects garbage every three seconds. Reduces lag substantially.

since i get no answer i re-post

of course you would never leave your mates....but these are ai. if you help them you will die, they can't give you a real help as humans can, you end wet nurse them, not to help them.
also, the mistakes ai can do are sometimes more unpredictable than the humans' ones..

so my advice is not to end the game with the dead of ai but just give penality points, because be alone angaist an army of covenant is a punishment more heavy than die.
to have 20 ai in strategical positions,spare in littel groups, it's a good tatic, but it don't solve the problem.

another topic is the use of vehicle. I see you planed to use both wartong and tanks,and this is great. I hope you'll find a credible way to bring ghost and wrhaits.

Make a nice little cutscene if you survive the on-slaught. If a player tries to hide away in a corner , then make the AI hunt him down. Like after a given amount of time then they can sense the player and go kill him.
Could work , just saying.

Or make a script that kills the player.

Try to lessen texture detail, compensate with variety. It usually isn't your RAM, it's your video card.

Phantoms need a change from the shots on the first post.

Oh, and do ODSTs arrive from drop pods? If you're playing as an ODST, a cutscene inside a drop pod would be nice. That would be HECK cool. If that does happen, I'm going to prioritize this more than SPv2.

Pardon if I didn't read the other pages.

What the hell is a garbage collector script? Where does it dump exactly?


It collects dead bodies and vehicles etc. Problem is it can happen right in front of your own eyes if I'm not mistaken. Meh, it doesn't lag so far (for my PC, which is my priority atm), so not necesarry yet.


You're mistaken. It only gathers garbage that the player can't see. If you stare at a body forever, it won't disappear.

Quoted from the scripting bible:

Causes all garbage except those visible to a player to be collected immediately

^ that is an undeniably epic screenshot

good job so far this is turing out to be the best firefight map ive seen so far, dont change the phantoms b/c phantoms own h1 dropships any day.

the only problem i have is that the fact that your still using h1 models make me a little sad :(

So I take it that. It will start off with some grunts. Then get more and more harder? Like in the ODST firefight? I don't know. Just a guess is all.

This map looks really cool. You have my download. I have a few questions though.
1. What will you be playing as?
2. Custom Weapons and Vehicles?
3. Will devmode be enabled? (etc. cheat_deathless_player _cheat_super_jump etc)
