MASSIVE Clone redux

Forum bugs are driving me nuts. I've moved development dicussion to: http://www.elysiun.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=194007 As the original thread has fallen victim to the blender.org forum poltergeist, I've begun a new one. I'll recreate my most recent post here... New animation to look at... http://6...

Without comments or blank lines, I have...

Initialization script: 30 lines
FollowTerrain (lock to ground): 66 lines
Main AI engine: 104 lines

Complex behavior from simple rules. I love it.

My last post isn't showing as a new post, so I thought I'd hit the thread again. Hmmm.

New animation to look at... http://66.134.133.114/battle3comp.avi It's divx5.0.5 and only 310k. Watch the blue guy at the top center try to run when his buddy bites it. Ha! This is turning out to be fun. Enjoy! New things implemented: - Actual attack and "neutralization". Older animations showed act...

I'm using official bf-blender 2.31a, with a full installation of Python 2.23. BTW, this weekend, I rewrote the script to store all object information in a mySQL database, using the MySQLdb Python library, right out of Blender. When I did this, and used the database for selecting opponents and doing ...

You're the one who started tossing around threats and the f-bomb. You are clearly being an order of magnitude more aggressive than anyone else here. And if we don't like it, it's not, as you say, tough shit. This forum is for Blender development, not this kind of spleen. Threads have been locked bef...

I'd like the admins/mods to pitch in too. This guy is getting overtly abusive. Someone PLEASE investigate this and send this dude back where he crawled out from.

Your accusations make no sense. If Sysadm did what you said, there would be no benefit to him - only downside. And if he did and is so malicious, why is your image still available in his gallery, with the full list of comments? I read the "thread", and it doesn't seem that he was being intollerant. ...

I've written a python script that will drop selected objects onto a mesh surface.

Here's the thread on elYsuin, where you can read about and download the script:

Okay - it only took me a second or two to put this stuff online so here it is... The .blend file with scripts and objects is there just as a proof of concept. As I said, the code is crap and far from finished, so no crits, please. It's just there in case you want to look at it. The anim is short, bu...

I wanted to see what I could come up with last night. As I have some pressing projects at work right now, I'll post a blend and an .avi file later today. Basically: Python script, linkable to Blender objects, that evaluate and react based on factors relating to their proximity to different combinati...

PM's have been disabled on this board, so I'll just post it... You can get my terrain-following python script here: http://harkyman.home.comcast.net/FollowTerrain.blend You move your objects in the x-y plane and they follow the mesh terrain of the designated ground object. Feel free to incorporate i...
