Announcement for each profileSuggestion

@Irishsun530 - That option isn't in the public release, but it will be in the next update.

Ahhh, didn't realise you didn't put it public yet, my bad. 

Even if the bot can roam between 4 grids, you could still say that within the text. What Deeply and I do, we have the profile for the boss. He chutes in, the announcement text goes into chat. Then I have another bot profile that are his 6 minions. They chute in also but I don't have a text that goes with them.

I’m glad I wasn’t going crazy by not being able to find ‘announcement text’ in my config. I’m looking forward to it hitting the public release.

it doesn’t do what I’m asking though - the spawn radius of the bot is 1700 an it has a 2000 roam. Any announcement which doesn’t include its actual spawn location is basically just an alert that it has spawned because it can be many squares away from its ‘creation’ point.

I’ve spent ages following the bot and it’s doing what I want (wandering around, fighting with scientists, chasing players down (it has a large agro  range too)). I’d just like to add the announcement hints that I’ve described in previous comments.

thank you for the excellent effort at explaining the new feature, but it isn’t what I was asking about. Just to be clear - the existing (and up coming) features are awesome, but no matter how things are configured (or can be with the announcement text) it won’t do what I’m asking - I’m hoping that the ability to add the bot’s REAL location (as in, where it actually spawns, not its ‘anchor location’) to the announcement (and possibly even periodic updates as to its whereabouts).

also, I don’t want it to come across as though I’m ‘making demands’ here - I’m certainly not. I’m just trying to be clear about what I’m looking for. I absolutely appreciated every second of effort which has been put into the development of this mod. I’m just hoping that my request isn’t dismissed because of the belief that I’m simply not configuring it correctly.

@elroy - Thanks for the message, and for explaining.
I get what you're looking for. Originally I was going to have a lang message + use the profile name for location,
but then realised people don't always use locations for custom profile names - They might be called 'BigBoss1' or whatever,
so I just went with a fixed user-string.

I don't know, maybe I can have it that if the message contains "GridReference", the plug replaces with "E4", or whatever the actual spawn grid is,
then make the default message "An NPC has spawned at GridReference." to make it obvious.

That keeps it a completely custom message, but gives location option?

I'll look into it, either way.

Same. I unloaded, reloaded, downloaded and scratched my head for about 45 mins looking for the announcement options in my config, only to find it wasn't a public option yet ....... Doh .....

That would be amazing! Thank you so much for looking into that! 👍🏼

It would be a good option for those that want it , But with 374 bots some of which are being killed by entities (*apart from those killed by players) it would be spamming the chat box every time they respawned, an example of which is that if i killed all the Airfield bots to get location loot i would get 25 chat messages when they respawned as well as any messages from death notes for any other deaths that are occurring in the meantime,

The way he has the beta version currently @pookins is it's on custom bots you place and you have the option to turn it on (true) then the options to have it broadcast whatever you want it to say. I do not have it for all the bots that spawn at monument. Just the one's I've custom placed that I want people to know of (Boss)
