Rover drone (campaign NPC)

Rover drone

This is the drone that was used in the campaign Mission 4.

This little drone acts as an Pirate NPC and will attempt to chase the player everywhere he goes.
Is able to avoid simple obstackles like walls or other vehicles and will circle the players vehicle while attacking
With this you can make your own practice range and epic rover battles!

Set the coresponding group to pirate faction to activate the AI,
then Push button on the rovers back to get it going.
Curently the turret is set up to burtfire for a bit of imersion, but ofcourse you can change settings
and alter its behaviour to your liking.

So do these spawn randomly or are they spawned in and you have to set them to pirates, I'm looking for a mod that adds planet side attack drones.

Hi, I found the drone is doing the opposite frome what it is supposed to do. When I get in front of it it just evades the player

Any way to make these just spawn in active periodically like a few kms from the player or from a pirate station when they're on a planet?

Testers are on it. ;) thanks.
This also means all pirate drones are broken since they use roughly the same script.

Yes, I did. also, when I check the script it says something about obsolete, error or something.

Did you set up the drone as a pirate and then use the button to turn it on?
SpetS May 3, 2017 @ 3:02pm 
I think is broken :/

If some of the systems are under the Pirate Faction, wouldn't defenses on a friendly base shoot at the drone?
