Side Scrolling RTS

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Thu Jan 08, 2015 5:57 am


I was trying to create a side scrolling RTS prototype, but I'm having some trouble with getting it to work. There are two main issues I'm having with it:

1. When you place a waypoint for your units to move to they move to it...but bounce. I believe this has something to do with the fact that I'm using the RTS behavior combined with the Platformer behavior. I'm using the Platformer behavior that way I can use things such as gravity, but I can't find any functionality within it to allow me to do something such as "Move to X value" The only reason the RTS behavior is still there is so I can use the "Move to object" function. If I could make this simpler, I would, I just don't know how.

2. When placing a waypoint on the sloped area it appears to go by the first floor sprite. I think I've somewhere that I need to use things like Sprite[1].X to grab the coordinates of a specific sprite, but I'm not sure how I would detect which sprite you clicked above. I suppose I could run a for loop to compare the x values of the floor sprites and where you clicked. I may have actually solved my own problem for this one.

Anyway, any help to achieve better/smoother looking unit control would be appreciated.


For some reason can't attach the file to this post. If you'd like to look at it pm me.

Hello, try archiving your cap file in a .rar or .zip format. I'm pretty sure that will work to post.
