YATM Drones

A little helper to pick up fallen items.

Introducing YATM Drones, an experiment using mobkit to implement a simple drone entity. It will randomly wander around and pick up item entities. That's all. Oh, it also seems to be fond of trees, I have no idea why.

To get started:

  1. Place a Scavenger Docking Station, and be sure to power it!
  2. Next, grab a Scavenger Drone Case and deploy the drone with a right click.

    The drone should immediately rush over to the docking station to charge up fully.

    Any drone that has its energy level drop below 1000 units, will immediately head for a docking station.

    Once it's fully charged it will move around idling.

  3. Feel free to drop items to test its pickup.
  4. Next, place a Scavenger Dropoff Station, power it and attach a Cardboard Box adjacent to it.

    The drone should enter the dropoff station after 15 seconds of being idle, or if its inventory didn't have room for a fallen item.

Expect all kind of odditites with it's behaviour

The code was thrown together to get a prototype of the drone.
