# Pac's companion.

Don’t know if this is the right forum but move it if it isn’t.

Ok so this is a little tutorial on setting up my little Companion as I call it.
It’s a hovercraft completely made of E2.
I have something similar just a hella lot better in a contraption I’ll post soon, a VTOL.
But here’s something for you simple guys that you can use when you are bored!

``````
@name Pac's companion
@persist W A S D E:entity Ground:vector Dir:vector Vel:vector Mov:vector Acc
runOnTick(1)

if (first()) {
soundPlay(1, 0, "ambient/machines/machine2.wav")
}
soundPitch(1, abs(Vel:y()/100)+80)

E = entity()

W = Pod:number("W")
A = Pod:number("A")
S = Pod:number("S")
D = Pod:number("D")

Dir = E:right():setZ(0)
Ground = rangerOffset(10000, E:pos(), vec(0, 0, -1)):position()

Vel = E:velL()
Mov = E:forward()*Vel:x()/5 + vec(0, 0, E:vel():z()) - E:right()*Vel:y()/20

Acc = clamp((W | S ? Acc+(S-W)*150 : Acc-(Acc/20)), -4000+(A | D)*1000, 1000)

applyForce((Ground+vec(0, 0, 40)-E:pos())*500-Mov*50+Dir*Acc)

applyAngForce(angnorm(-E:angles()+ang(-E:angVel():yaw()*Vel:y()/3500, 0, 0)-E:angVel()/7):setYaw(-E:angVel():yaw()/20+(A-D)*3)*700)

``````

So that’s the E2 code.
Not too hard to understand if you know what you’re dealing with.

Now, the tutorial on how to set it up:

1. First of all we’re gonna get the prop the hovercraft will use (Best with this prop), you do this by typing
``````
wire_expression2_model models/hunter/plates/plate1x2.mdl

``````

1. Copy-Paste the code from above and put it into an Expression2!

2. Spawn the E2

Wiring it up!
Wiring has been done as simple as possible. Only one wire is required to be correct.

1. Ok now, spawn a seat and an Advanced-Pod-Controller.

2. Link the Pod controller to the seat/chair.

5. Enjoy!

Also! I recommend that you turn gravity OFF of the seat AND Adv-Pod-Controller!

This is how it should look like (The plate is E2, red thing is the Adv-Pod-Controller):

This E2 includes sounds, cool movement and is just pure awesome when bored
Your only controls are simple as well!
Just W, A, S and D!

If you have problems setting it up then try again and if that fails, make a reply to this thread!

I’d like to see a vid on how Well it works before bothering with the whole setup here. Perhaps someone will be bothered, however, and vouch for it.

The thing is just I hate making vids but I’ll maybe make one… Maybe…
But really, it took me 30 seconds to set up.

I can imagine it took you around 30 seconds. But what I want to know is how well it works.

I agree

Let this piece of shit die, please.
