Encounters + Waypoints

Heya guys,

This may be a stupid and pointless question, but I'm wondering if anyone might have a solution to this.

I have an encounter that is triggered by a conversation, which is fine, however I want to have all the creatures spawned by this encounter run towards a waypoint near where they spawn.

Is there a way to do this, without using a different onspawn for the creatures as they already have a quite hefty onspawn.

Welllll... you could always use the onUserDefined and set the spawn in to onSpawned.... *innocent grin*

Tag the waypoint 'POST_<creature tag>'. Note that this will cause all creatures of this tag to move to the waypoint, not just the ones from your encounter. Not so good, unless the encounter creatures are unique in the area.

Or, have a heartbeat script somewhere. No good for PWs, okay for single-player mods.

Or, instead of spawning the creatures from an encounter, create them via a script in the conversation, and assign them to move to the waypoint. That's what Id be doing.

EDIT: Old post!
