Hello all, i've got a couple of questions regarding contsuction bee's. This wouldnt be a question if I had thought about my design before building it (or more-over, Armada's flaws :p) Anywho, is there any way to get the bee to fly forward instead of up? My construction ship has bee's that come out of forward bays, but instead they fly up through the hull and deploy. Also is there any way to specify a hardpoint from which the welding beam shoots? It's kind of annoying, i've modelled that part in but cant really use it due to the bee shooting from the center, I know this is a small nitpick but heck, I am picky and a perfectionist :p Any help would be aprreciated! - Mike

you can change which way the bots come from by opening the model, rotating the hitpoints in the direction you want them to emerge and re-export to sod.

No... it comes from dead center and I doubt it can be changed as the bees have no odf.

But wont this make them fly the wrong way too though? That was my initial thought but I dont want them flying all weird, I of course could rotate the bee in a way so it would fly face the proper direction too? Thanks for the quick response, nice to see you still around Achilles

If you want the bees to wed from a certain HP, move them so that your "firing" location is on the scene root. That should do the trick.

Sweet! Never thought of that, thanks, although they'll also appear different in the construction ship, I can easily just move the hardpoint forward
