WHen I put the stormtrooper NPC in my map he always starts shooting at me. How can I make him so he is friendly? (Multiplayer)

To make usual enemy NPCs to not attack the player, either the player's team needs to be changed, or the NPC's needs to be.

Usually, for specific NPCs in a map, this one done with a script... like the bad guys in the Jedi Outcast bar.

Well I have tried a few different NPC's in my map, and the stormtrooper seems to be the only one who attacks me. (Jan and the imperial officer dont).

Create a new text file, name it stormtrooper.npc and fill it with this:

playerModel stormtrooper
health 30
headPitchRangeDown 30
reactions 3
aim 1
move 3
aggression 3
evasion 1
intelligence 5
rank crewman
playerTeam TEAM_PLAYER

Put it under ext_data\npcs\ into a pk3 file and start the game. The trooper shouldn't shoot you anymore.

The magic is done by the lines "playerTeam" and "enemyTeam".

NOTE: delete the pk3 or rename it to .zip, or the stormtroopers will be allied with you throughout the game.

Hmmm I tried the script in the pk3 and in a seperate pk3 but there must be somthing wrong with it because when I go into my map the console tells me it can't spawn a stormtrooper. Is this for MP or just Single player?
