    Heres how you can make an effective stalker using only 2 negate chips, and a few other things.

    Very easy!



    Step 1.
    Spawn a plate



    Step 2.
    Put a target finder on it with Target Players on, and max range 10,000.



    Step 3.
    Put a beacon sensor on it near the front. it can face any direction.
    Have output vector, and normalize vector Checked.
    Then link it to the target finder



    Step 4.
    Put 2 negate chips on it



    Step 5.
    Put a numpad input on it, with Toggle checked, values on: 1, off: 0



    Step 6.
    Put regular hoverballs on it, with around 0.7 resistance



    Step 7.
    Put a vector thruster on the front with mode: World XYZ, and force: 100,000



    Step 8.
    Wire it up



    The red wire is X
    the purple wire is Y
    and the blue wire is Mul

    if you cant wire it up with this information, please ask someone else. i dont want to hear complaints about how i didnt name each wire correctly.


    Step 9.
    Unfreeze it, press your hotkey, and watch it chase down its prey.






    Enjoy!

    Just a quick question about the vector thruster: does it thrust towards or away from the vector you give it? For example, if you gave it the vector of 0,0,10, will it go up or down?

    not exactly sure, it really depends on your settings and where it is placed.

    if its firing in the opposite direction then what you want, just negate the input.

    I made a vector thruster once, but it didn't fire in the good direction.

    The thrust was at the direction I was pointing.

    In that case, like pyro said, negate the input.
