Report article RSS Feed HD Video Tutorial - NPC Animations 1

Learn how to use a scripted_sequence to make a combine kick in a door.

Posted by Silverfisk on Nov 21st, 2009
Intermediate Mapping/Technical.


Rundown
We create a npc_metropolice, then we get the animation we want and position a scripted_sequence at the desired location.

We make the door open faster and give it a more fitting opening sound. Then we make it open as the animation is played.

After that we finish it up by adding a trigger for the event and some info_nodes for NPC navigation.

 
Please give me a comment telling me what you think.
Also, don't forget to give me tutorial requests!

The npc_metropolice? Are you sure you're mapping for a game that has that npc? HL2, EP1 and EP2 should work.
Hope this helps!

Hey I like your tutorials they're the best. I have a request: How do I make my camera move for cinematics (example: I reach a trigger zone and the camera flies to a point that shows some scene like an explosion, stays there for about 5 seconds and then retrns back to the player.) I remember my friend saying something about info_camera_position or someting... (note: may not be info_ ) can you help?

Thanks.
