I'm think of a level with some bots that are loyal to the player...meanin they'll escort, fight and die for him/her. Is that even a possibility...to create bots that won't attack you but help you?


If so...what do i need to do to make them like me? Cos i know money's not gonna work.

Can't be done... guidebots can escort you, but they don't attack other robots except under cheat codes.

NUTS.

It's an outrage. Though the thought of having a Sidearm escort party wasn't a bad idea :)

What was the config option to \"Allow\" them to fight each other, like some do in d3. I'll get sick during a circle strafe and back off and next thing i see is the RAS-3 that was trying to kill me is now goin against the thresher that was behind him.

I tried giving a D2 robot the \"buddy\" option before. It would lead me to places like a guidebot, but when it turned to face me it would shoot me. It was quite funny.
