View Full Version : Sackbots that don't fill the thermometer

I've been having quite a bit of trouble using sackbots in my levels, each one placed makes the thermometer skyrocket. Seriously, 10 sackbots and you've pretty much filled the level.

I understand they are probably a very complicated thing, but what if we had really basic sackbots that have limited editability (costumes, behaviours like idle, follow, flee, but no extra behaviours can be added, in fact, the whole microchip could go) that would be great, and open up a whole lot of gameplay opportunities.

Being able to dephysicalise them would also help. Especially for the cinematic bits (no need to be 'physical').

Have you tried emitting the Sackbots? Not sure if that raises the thermo.

Yeah try that, so only having the sackbot in the level when it is visible by the player

If you add sackbot to emmiter from "Your Objects" it also fill the thermometer((

I was wondering... Remember the very first seconds of the second part of the final battle in LBPV story mode, The Pupeteer one? There is a mini cinematic with lots of sackbots doung stuff. And then you have the boss battle which probably took lots of thermo space. I guess there must actually be a way to cheat the thermo and include more sackbots, but I have no idea how to do so.
