Yea, happens, trying to write a better script. A pawn that will guide a player no matter what happens. Maybe it'll work, we'll see.
On the horizontal cart I managed to push the guy off (of course, that was partly intentional on my part
Don't do that...
Mman wrote:(for a solution that might work and be simple, maybe put an invisible wall mover that goes around the guy and follows the cart when it's active and disappears when he moves off so you can't push him).
A better way is to disable guy's actor collisions. Screw combinations with movers.

No, no health packs, only a girl with a needle

Soon almost every friendly pawn you meet will have something to say. Like "Bagger off" for example.
At the moment the dialogue system is, maybe not better working, but more interactive. You can choose your answer and, depending on it, the scripted action follows. Though I won't use it here, in this compilation. Too many things would change.

Yup, that's true. At the beginning this level was intended to be an intro to another two levels. But didn't quite make it
The second was almost done, but it would have no sence without the third. And this way, it has... Well, technically.
