Share New Actions / Re: Set Enemy/npc (or player) Fov 3d or 2d

I don't really need the visual element of these actions, just the ability to detect when objects enter/leave the FOV.

But having any action updated would be nice offcourse and if you see a quick fix then please do.

I'll move to Playmaker Help for now.

Playmaker Help / Re: Tracking multiple objects within a FOV
« on: July 08, 2017, 08:47:32 AM »
The Sensor Toolkit does look like it has most of the functionality that i need and i might need to consider it, however i'm going broke buying all the stuff unity seems to lack :P

If i may ask,how dit you approach this issue in your own playmaker project using FSM's?

Playmaker Help / Tracking multiple objects within a FOV
« on: July 08, 2017, 08:18:26 AM »
Hey guys, so i'm workig on a AI system for my game and i'm trying to figure out the best way to check if other NPC's are within a certain field of view.

Tracking one object is simple offcourse, however i need to check the angle/visibility of multiple objects from an array list to see if they move in/out of the FOV.

This array list is populated with objects that are in close proximity to the NPC doing the checking, so this list changes depending on the objects in range.

So i never know how many items are in the array at any given time.

Any ideas on how to best approach this?

Nobody has any interest in updating these actions then?

A shame, i've been trying to figure out a good way to track visibility on multiple targets within a field of view simultaneously.

Thanks that would be a bit easier!

If you're going to put it on the ecosystem, it might be a good idea to make the same action for floats also.

Edit: your action still flips the bool back to false like the normal bool changed, mine keeps the value so you can loop back and check for other bool changed events.

Example loop

I have it set up now so that you can have multiple of these actions in the same state and if one of them changes you can continue, extract the name of the action that triggered the transition and loop back to start checking for a bool change again without the bool being reset.

I have one FSM that holds all my variables, and with this i can change any bool and through a loop the FSM sends the info to other FSM's. So i only need to set variables on one FSM during runtime.

Don't know if that makes sense :P But it works for me.

Ok so i changed the action you made to ouput a string instead of a int, this works great.

However i just noticed that when using multiple bool changed events in one state, only the last action actually saves the "Store Result" (bool)

The actions above it do not seem to store the result (same for normal bool changed action btw)

Does anybody know how i could get around this?



Edit

Never mind i adjusted the action so i can run multiple versions in the same state.

Problem solved

Playmaker Help / Re: PlayerPrefs alternative?

Easy Save would probably by your best alternative if you need to save a lot of variables.

But offcourse it's a paid asset.

No, when using the "Nav Mesh Calculate Path" action, you need to define a layer mask for the pathfinding!

The "passable mask" field in this case.

Should the pathfinder package not include a custom playmaker editor for defining this mask?

In the folder Pathfinding/NavMesh/Editor, there are 3 custom editor files, should these not get exposed in the playmaker dropdown menu?

Are these actions still up to date for playmaker 5?

I need a way to define a mask for the "Nav Mesh Calculate Path" action, however i can not find the custom playmaker editor that should be in this package.

Have you tried a Move Towards action with a max speed of about 25 and a finish distance of 0?

That that should work.

Bool Changed

I need one state with about 30 bool changed actions and one FINISHED transition.

So when one of the bool changed fires en moves to the next state, i need to know which specific action fired the transition event.

Hey guys, is it currently possible to find out which specific action in a state was the one that triggered a transition event?

I have one state that checks if a whole list of variables has changed and if any of them change i want to fire off the FINISHED event, however in the next state i need to know which specific action triggered the event so that i can know which variable i need to change.

So that when i'm checking 50 variables in one state, i don't also need 50 different transitions :P
