Title: Bot/Map problems
Post by: Cyrix on December 28, 2009, 12:39:18 am
I have a rather large collection of maps from various people that i really really like. But on some of them the bots seem to stick in one spot and they just dont move. Some times it can be fixed with a grenade. Blasting them to start moving. Its there something wrong with these maps? Because i would be glad to fix them. Just need to know how. lol.

Those maps whereby the bots don't move - that's because they don't have waypoints. Either that, or the waypoints are not properly made. You're gonna need a mapmaking program such as Soldat Polyworks to alter the waypoints.

You can search around this forum section and read the (outdated) stickies.

PolyBugs are formed when polygons don't quite overlap or connect at the very points. As STM suggested, snag polyworks and read through the stickies.

Once you've gotten a troublesome map opened in PW, try to make the polygons where the polybugs occur overlap. (i.e.: no bare tips exposed)
