Two questions, new to making missions - monsters and stations

posted Dec 18, 2012 00:37:57 by TravisHead
So I'm loving the mission editing ability in Artemis but I had a couple of questions I haven't been able to figure out on my own;
1) Can Monsters move? I have tried all sorts of combinations to get a monster to move from A to B but they never budge. So far I've had to fake it out by having it jump every few seconds. This does what I need but a smooth movement would be preferred and I'm running into issues with scripting the reaction when Artemis engages them (so far they just ignore and move as scripted).

2) Can you make an object intangible? I wanted a star base that looks planet-bound so I created an asteroid in the same space and learned how to move it up and down on the Y axis. It actually looks pretty cool. Problem is with an asteroid there I can never dock with the station, it seems like the asteroid is blocking the ship from getting close enough.
Is there a way to make the asteroid just a picture? I want to be able to fly right through it if need be but will settle for being able to dock.

Formulae are an important update. So is the ability to assign hotkeys to the various consoles. The hotkeys are not very well documented but they work.
"Damn the torpedoes! Four bells, Captain Drayton!"

(Likely actual words of Admiral David Farragut, USN, at the battle of Mobile Bay. Four bells was the signal for the engine room to make full steam ahead).
