Pausing units without disabling Group/Unit AI

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I have a scenario where I am trying to halt three Blue HMMWVs until two enemy groups have been destroyed, then they can proceed.

These particular vehicles are acting as JTAC units, they will be spotting those two groups, so I cannot use the Disable Group AI command.

 

How is this best done?

 

Cheers

Adi.

Triggered Actions> Hold

 

Each time you want the group to stop you use the action AI Task>(groupname, hold) and the group will stop in place.

 

Alternatively the "Stop and Deploy to Template" might also do the trick, however I do not remember if the AI will resume their path once they get in the template.

The right man in the wrong place makes all the difference in the world.

Cheers for the reply, Grimes.

 

How do I get them to move again after the two groups have been killed?

I've tried adding a GROUP ALIVE condition to the [AI Task > Hold] Action, but because it is activated when in a Trigger Zone, as part of another condition, I can't get them to set off again.

Can I remove a Trigger Zone after it has been used or is there another way to make them move again?

 

Sorry, I'm having a brain fart - I've been away for a while. :doh:

In conditions-unit dead, select unit.....actions-group active, select group. I think

I think the 'group activate' action only spawns pre-placed units from ticking the 'late activation' box in the editor. The group I'm having trouble with are already in-game and have their AI on.

 

Going on Grimes info, give Triggered Actions > Start a try. I know that works with uncontrolled aircraft.

 

I couldn't find this option, maybe it is only available with aircraft and/or uncontrolled AI, like ramp clutter.

 

 

 

I bet there is an easy way of doing it and I just can't see for looking.
