Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Using behavior trees for things other than pawns

I would like to use a behavior tree to control weapons on a ship so they can act independent of the ships AI. I.e., the ship AI simply starts and stops the weapons, and the weapon behavior is configurable.

Since the number of weapons and weapon placement is different from ship to ship it doesn't make sense to just have the weapon be a pawn; the controller is a seperate entity - currently a component.

My assumption right now is that the way to accomplish this is to have the weapon controller spawn an AI controller that is simply not attached to anything and have that run the behavior tree.

Am I on the right track, or is there a better way to do this? Can a controller have multple behaviors, this allowing me to have it a configurable parameter of the ship's controller?
