I was watching Shadefyre's tc level video and he mentioned that it was too bad that you couldn't
at least ride the dozer (even if in a straight line). Well, I tried that and came up with a test level
of that. I was just curious to see if it could be done -

Dude that is slick! Without checking T-script, I am guessing you gave it a physics axis-vector that simply made it go forward on a single axis? Or is it a force-push? It traverses the terrain perfectly.. tho if my suspicions are correct it will only work going straight or up-hill.

It primarily uses actiontype 10 (x,y,z) force and a stabilizing magnet to allow it to follow the terrain
changes. I refined/changed the triggers to better suit a puzzle I had in mind for future use though,
it actually came out better than I had hoped.

This is really cool, man. I can definitely see some applications for its future use, though I have different plans for executing vehicles. How exactly does the magnet work? I thought you couldn't have objects with moving magnets attached to them move at all without crashing the game.

Hmmm... I think the only problem is rotating magnets (hinges). Standard magnets that just hold two objects together shouldn't be a problem (that's how they make breakable furniture in the retail levels, after all).

Neato. Then its like I did with that jeep in JPDS~testing. If I'm correct this only works to follow the terrain if the path is all-up-hill..

Wow, it's neat to see that my ramblings/observations gave you a little bit of an idea, Rebel. :esmile:

That they did, Shadefyre. My antenna's are up while listening to your narratives. I have to say, you do
a great job on these videos; they're not only enjoyable, but help to keep this game alive! Nice job on my
Ruins Level too, thanks, man. ;) There's just something about this game, it just doesn't belong tossed a-
side onto the scrapheap of yesteryear.

*On a related note, that crossbow does work, but you need to have the bow stored and then grab the ar-
row off the dead roman soldier. If it loads, ie. the arrow disappears and you hear a click, the bow is good
to go (though sometimes you have to unstore, then restore the bow before the arrow loads (the triggers
involved are rather numerous and complex)).

Wow that's awesome! 8> I didn't know making the bulldozer move was possible in Trespasser, that just made the game even cooler in my opinion, it was already really cool before but this makes it even cooler. That's pretty cool rebel.

Thanks, D.H., but I don't think I'm the first modder to do it. I think Draco and machf might have done something
similar to this. I'm not really sure, they'd have to chime in.

I wonder if a drivable car is possible in trespasser, like if you could turn it left and right

Hey Rebel, could I use your movable dozer in a level I'm making?

Thanks, Dylan

Sure. If something is released, consider it public domain. If it helps you get into level building,
by all means, use it. ;)
