Noise Level Trigger Actions
« on: August 10, 2012, 08:18:29 PM »
I'm looking for something like Overlapping Spheres that's created around the player that decreases/increases in size depending on the player stance/actions, ie. running, walking, crouching,e etc. This can be set as a trigger so that it'll trigger NPC's when they are inside the Overlapping Sphere.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jay

guessing: "Noise" would be the character actual noise related to the actions performed in game

If you do not need a visual representation of this triggers (spheres) it might be easier/ simpler to;
Get the distance to player and compare it to a float Variable (if more = do nothing, if less = attack etc)
you can then alter this variable (player running = increase, player crouch = decrease etc) simulating the "noise" made by the player.
