Hi, im trying to find a tutorial or some instructions for setting up vehicle respawning in maps. Im certain I saw a thread about it on these forums once but despite searching the master sticky, the forum search and google ive found nothing so i was wondering if anyone would know where i can find some information?

Thank you.

I don't think these forums get that specific with their tutorials. I do not know how to set a timed re-spawn after the vehicle dies, but I think you can simply put a vehicle entity in your map, set the vehicle you want to spawn, and link it to a trigger_multiple switch. I don't know how experienced you are at mapping, but if you don't have a clue as to what I just said, I can show you in more detail.

base/maps/mp/siege_hoth_sample.map// entity 46 { "delay" "10" "count" "-1" "npc_target" "atst_2" "targetname" "atst_2" "healingrate" "250" "healingclass" "Imperial Tech" "healingsound" "sound/ambience/doomgiver/doom_bridge.wav" "teamowner" "1" "classname" "NPC_Vehicle" "angle" "180" "NPC_type" "atst_vehicle" "origin" "3184 -264 -118" "showhealth" "1" "teamnodmg" "1" "teamuser" "1" }

...forget about the team related key if u want to use it in FFA. The healing... keys are for siege only!? - not really sure about this. However, u may also check 'base/scripts/mp_entities.def' for further keys & descriptions. ;)

[SIZE="1"]PS.: Maybe it also needs a 'shot' for the first spawn in this case (probably by a script, optional a trigger or whatever can fire it) but after this it keeps respawning when being destoyed as it 'shoots' itself then... WARNING: don't spawn too many of them cause the amount of vehicle slots in basejka is really small (16?) - if exceeded, crash![/SIZE]

didnt know there was a limit on how many vehicles you can have, that will save me alot of greif. Having the vehicle target its self is a stroke of genius :)
