Help with Shooting Plants
« on: March 15, 2015, 02:17:06 PM »
I am trying to make/evolve a plant that can shoot to hunt. However, because they're plants, they become huge and their shots don't go very far. Can anyone list the shooting-related variables/identifiers that I should look for so that I can attempt to fix this?

Look at the "ADVANCED SHOT BOT TUTORIAL" Its in the robot tutorials page...if you store certain values in .shootval and you use -1 or -6 or -2 shots it'll change either there range or power. Btw, -6 shots are 10 times as strong as -1 shots.

Ah. I thought that the range and power of a shot was directly proportional to the bot's body. I just didn't know for sure.

it is but you can change that by using shootval just be careful because the number in shootval if using for power and range is the amount of nrg used

But shadow, it doesn't matter for huge bots about the nrg used, because they already have huge nrg...

They've got plenty of energy. The problem is that when they get too much, it defaults to body, and they invariably grow huge.

Yes. increase the shot range...then use FD body to fill up their nrg and decrease their body.
