I have been working on a mission and in it wanted to -

A) place bodies (either unconscious or dead)

B) Make a disabled friendly ship destroy-able


As far as A goes I have come up empty on how to do this I have seen it other Foundry mission tho, Just don't know how do to it.
With B I know I can put a "Costume" on a friendly ship then target it... But as I want it already disabled, I don't want it to fight back, so again not sure on what I can do there.


Any help would be most appreciated, thank you.

A. There is an animation for the dead. I always forget its name, but it's something like Lie- Front. It has the npc laying face down on the ground. There are also sleeping animations for unconscious.

Do you know how to animate a npc?

B, if I understand you, isn't really possible, although there are some possible workarounds that might get you a little closer to that goal. For example, there is a way to "turn on a Borg cube" from off line to fully operational.

I did that in a triggers tutorial. But being able to fire on something that doesn't fire back isn't possible in space, as far as I know.

Maybe you could do it on the ground with trapped targs in objects?

One more question... I am trying to put a Freighter leaking warp plasma in a mission. However all the freighters I place on the map look exactly the same. Is there something I am dong wrong?

There are a few damaged ships that leak plasma, or you can use a freighter and add a gas fx to the map. It's a pain to line it up precisely with the ship, but it works.
