MindReader2- for mappers

**DO NOT USE THIS ONLINE!!!**

When making MH2 I was constantly having to log monster states and I got to thinking "Wouldn't it be great if I could see this on the fly?" I remember seeing MindReader for bots, and after getting permission from the maker of the original, I adapted it to fit MonsterHunt mapping.

This is a tool for mappers to see how their monsters will behave given a set of conditions. You can even run mods (like MH2) that adjust monster fighting and instantly see the results as each monster changes states and enemies differently.

A lot of information per monster is displayed and it will clutter the HUD up, so use playersonly to freeze things and look at a particular bot. Here is a screenie:

Now I'm not going to bother explaining all of the lines. If you don't understand them already, this mod just isn't for you. Enjoy mappers, and let me know if there is more information you would like included.

I think that is for "current enemy". Perhaps "current target" is an objective (not quite sure lol).

Current target and current enemy are sometimes different. I didn't know that until I started watching. There's a lot going on in the background with the monsters AI. This gives a real appreciation for it when you see it going full on.

I pointed this at my ex-wife and got "Hated" but the Intelligence returned a negative...Must be something in the code :noidea

I have to agree, that gopostal guy was a total douche.
