A few questions in one.
show user profile  Tythus
1.How can I make certain animations loop around once they are finished? I want to make a 10-20 frame walk animation and don't want to make a 1000 frame one.
2.Is there a way to randomize animations? I want to make character X and copy pasta him 20 times and have each of the 'crowd' doing various animations in a random way they might need to loop also.
3.Is there a way to make to legions fight does anyone have an example the main issue I am having is getting them to align.
4.I have made a basic crowd simulator but I want to meticulously control where the crowd spawns and also give them a random texture/model
5.How can I make the characters avoid each other whenever I have tried they sometimes still go past each other or go in awkward ways making way i made them face a correct way die.
6.going up hills...I found it very easy to make them go around on a flat plane but I will need them to go up and down hills and trying to get them to do this has been a struggle at the best of times with lots falling through the earth.

Thanks for reading/helping (hopefully)

1) Look up out of range types in the curve editor is one way to do it.

You can use local animations (as opposed to absolute) to influence individual limbs/body parts without upsetting the rest of the animations. Sorry, I don't know how to automatically set that up for crowds.

As for the rest of your questions, not a clue.
