Ok so I don't want to give too much away about my new level, but I was wondering, I've got a cannon and would i be able to make a boss defeatable with it and make a goal appear when i defeat him... this may be a difficult request but i'd like to know..

Put a magnetic key on the cannonballs that you fire and a magnetic switch on the part that you want players to hit. Now make a block out of the player's sight and put an unprotected monster brain on it. Above this make a dynamic block and glue it to a static dissolvable block. Attach the key switch to the dissolve material and set the monster brain to vulnerable.

What should now happen is that once shot in the right place the boss should die.

I thought about the magnetic key, I didn't think they'd all be linked to it or if just the one would be. or if it'd try to spawn the whole wired set or not :S

That sounds a bit too easy though doesn't it? So what you could do is either make the player have to progress through a series of boss attacks before getting awarded the chance to attack, or give the boss a health bar and having occasional boss attacks.

To make the scoreboard appear, put a magnetic key on the boss and a magnetic switch on something that does not dissappear. Set it to invert and attach it to an emitter.

If you attach the key to a cannonball and capture it, it will be fine. the key itself has no wires. Its the magnetic switch that you dont want to be on the cannonball

However, I could have several weak points to shoot, then once the boss falls it triggers a magnetic switch to make the goal appear. Maybe I could send the level to you and you can see what you think is best? A little help might be nice, keep in mind it isnt finished, I still need to add the enemies in the middle.

Alright ^^ have fun trying it. just mess around with it, study the dragon. See if you can think of anything.

Shoot I just noticed that you can't even see the dragon... and the ship falls just short of him... lemme make it copyable so you can look at it in edit mode..
