You inspired me to finish my level thesupertman. I have needed a reason to get back to it and your level was fun and I would also like to add my vision of Starhawk to the LBP2 crowd.
I have some catching up to do.
You could place emmiters on the boards for the boys and have them shoot that way when a person get with in a range detector, or place a follower with a mock gun to follow them (using tags), but it is much easier to use stickers to mock guns and then use the emitter (I have not made the second versoin but have seen some nice guns using the follower option. As for explosives you can make emitters create fake explosions with holos, expand, and keying animations for more detailed ones (that is how I made the nuke explosion and the emp overheat ones that take up 1/8th to 1/4th of the level...not saying it was great, but it was an explosion that does not damage...plus with holo materials set to flame or electric they are lethal). I wasn't saying about removing the bots, just they were not doing much, perhaps following. Can't wait to see the next one.
