    More COG help please!!!

    ok, i am working on eventually getting a friendly stormie to follow you around and fires at enemies... but right now i am just figuring out how to get an actor to follow you.

    i have it working as of now so that if the actor is ever further than 0.3 distance from you it will move to your current location... but the problem it it moves to your exact location, bumping the player out of the way to get there. i want to get it so once the actor is within 0.3 of the player the actor will STOP...

    any help??
    Code:
    symbols
    
    
    message    startup
    message    pulse
    
    
    thing    player        
    thing    trooper    
    
    
    flex    movespeed=1.5
    flex    thinkRate=1.0
    flex    ctrlocator=0.30    local
    
    
    vector    position0        local
    
    
    end
    # ========================================================================================
    
    
    code
    
    
    startup:
           AiSetMoveSpeed(trooper, movespeed);
        SetPulse(thinkRate);
        return;
    
    
    # ........................................................................................
    
    
    pulse:
        position0 = GetThingPos(player);
        if (VectorDist(GetThingPos(trooper), position0) < ctrlocator) {
            return;
        }
        else {
            AISetLookPos(trooper, position0);
            AiSetMoveThing(trooper, player);
        }
        if (GetHealth(trooper) <= 0.0) {
            SetPulse(0.0);
        }
        return;
    
    
    end

    as a side note i tried adding this with "ctrlocator1" defined as .25
    but the actor does not follow the player at ALL now, regardless of how far away it is.
    Code:
    if (VectorDist(GetThingPos(trooper), position0) < ctrlocator1) { 
        StopThing(trooper)    
    }

    Post the version with the addition.
    And when the moment is right, I'm gonna fly a kite.

    hmm... also do you think something like this might be easier done with several cogs that just move the actors to different ghost positions throughout the level, like waypoints??
