Force attack stills target entities with "companion" tag

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


In Don't Starve Together, I can add "companion" tag to prefabs to indicate that they are friendly entities, and force attack action should ignore them.

However, I cannot do that in Don't Starve. The force attack only ignores followers, but still picks companion target. 

Does anyone know how force attack chooses targets in Don't Starve? How can I make it ignore some entities?

you can look into the combat.lua for the force attack target checking: 


function Combat:IsValidTarget(target)
    if not target 
	   or not target:IsValid()
       or not target.components
       or not target.components.combat
       or not target.entity:IsVisible()
       or not target.components.health
       or target == self.inst
       or target.components.health:IsDead()
       or (target:HasTag("shadow") and not self.inst.components.sanity)
       or Vector3(target.Transform:GetWorldPosition()).y > self.attackrange then
        return false
		return true

you could remove the combat component on your prefab or overwrite the force attack function


function Combat:ForceAttack()
    if self.target and self:TryAttack() then
        return true

and add a special tag from your prefab to avoid attacking
