Hello,
how can I create a steamboat on which the player can run around while it's driving on a river?
Thanks for help!

In COJ:BiB's Single Player Campaign the steamboat was moved by the "Movies Plug-In". Just create a movie with a steamboat as actor and move it when it will be ready to go.

Well, that's what I thought and did at first, too. But it doesn't work. The player doesn't go with the boat - the steamboat goes away under his feets.

Use action "act_attach" to attach player (child) to steamboat (parent). This should solve the problem.

No, doesn't work. The player goes with the boat at the beginngn but when he starts to move, there's still this sliding effect, which pulls the player to the bottom of the boat.
So you can't really move.

There's action "InstantPlatformMount" but it was used only for platforms like stagecoach. We've never did something like that, sorry.

But wasn't there such a sequence in the game?
Well, i have to find another way for my maps storyline.
But thanks for your helphttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
