You're allowed to post questions :) No one minds helping a fellow developer, just don't be "that guy" asking people to build their game for them and you're good to go :))

I have same issue as Jarick, how to make npc stay in one spot, I set spawn location to be declared but it sets itself back to random and the sheep are moving all over the place and not staying in their pen i made for them.

Depends if you want an npc or an event. If its an npc surround it by npc avoids (tile attribute npcs count as blocks). If we're talking events assign movement to be none which is default.

I tried it all, I made some sheep and a sheep pen, I want the sheep to spawn in the pen and stay in the pen but they are spawning everywhere but the pen and moving all over despit me eve making an even for no movement but ofcourse since i am new to intersect, the event really wasn't saying what the non movement is being assigned to since I didn't see that option. and for the spawn location i set it to declared but it automatically keeps switching to random.

Just for anyone who want to make NPC like he's sheep that doesn't walk away

  1. Pick your created NPC and add it to map's NPC spawn list
  2. Set spawn to DECLARED
  3. Pick up your sheep, also should do it pre-step 2, but I think you can manage :D
  4. Place it on the map like event or tile you can remove it sam way (Left click to place, right to destroy)
  5. Move to ATTRIBUTES and pick NPC AVOID, and close out the building,fence whatever you'll use so the NPC doesn't wonder off.

 


If you want to make an EVENT immovable and you want to make it look like standing NPC, just pick preview into sprite you want (click on the grey square to open up sprit/tile menu ((Under Preview))((Not the Animation just grey square))). If you want to make EVENT that moves, (screen numbah 3) but you don't want him wonder off, you'll need to set up ROUTE, you can also add RANDOM MOVEMENT but that may cause him to leave the position you want him to be (in open for example). Adding route is easy, just click type: NONE and instead of none pick : MOVE ROUTE and create long chains of moves to make impression that he's moving on random or non-picked route. Also remember to mark REPEAT LOOP otherwise after doing it once Event will stop.


Humm, @Jarick @PinkAngel  Here's tutorial, quick one but should do the job if you'll need more just write.
Also @NotAzizele stop being lazy :<

At @NotAzizele it was a joke :P
