Title: (Solved) Path follower that stops and resumes
Post by: Prometheus2012 on Mar 05, 15, 05:24:59 AM
Ive been playing around with the path follower and waypoints. Im trying to make a follower that stops at some point along its path for a few seconds and then resumes following the path.

This would be for something like a subway train that stops at a platform for 5 or so seconds and then resumes. Ive been trying it with the speed setting but cant quite seem to get it working how i want it.

What if you use the Pause field of the follower, then unpause it after a timer fires?

got it almost right just using the speed setting.

[0:0.1:L][0.345:0.06615:L][0.4:0.0017:L][0.405:0.000150001:L][0.41:0.0017:L][0.445:0.06355:L][1:0.1:L]L;0.9

Stops it at the platform and a couple seconds later it creeps of and then gets up to full speed :)

The speed setting on path follower can be used to great effect.
