Ring bearer help python hero placeholder needs something to command

# You must escort a powerful magical ring back to town to be studied.
# The goal is to escape, not fight. More ogres lurk in the surrounding mountains!
# Make a circle of soldiers around the peasant!
# We give you two functions to help with this:

# findSoldierOffset figures out the position a soldier should stand at in relation to the peasant.
# The first argument 'soldiers' should be an array of your soldiers.
# The second argument 'i' is the index of the soldier (in soldiers) you want to find the position for.
def findSoldierOffset(soldiers, i):
    soldier = soldiers[i]
    angle = i * 360 / len(soldiers)
    return radialToCartesian(5, angle)

# This function does the math to determine the offset a soldier should stand at.
def radialToCartesian(radius, degrees):
    radians = Math.PI / 180 * degrees
    xOffset = radius * Math.cos(radians)
    yOffset = radius * Math.sin(radians)
    return {"x": xOffset, "y": yOffset}
peasant = hero.findByType("peasant")[0]
n = 0 
# Use findByType to get an array of your soldiers.
while True:
    friends = hero.findFriends()
    # Use a for-loop to iterate over range(len(soldiers)).
    soldiers = []
    for friend in friends:
        if friend.type == "soldier":
            soldiers[n] = friend.id
            n += 1
            hero.say("the length of soldiers is " + len(soldiers) + ".")
    # Find the offset for a soldier.
    for i in range(len(soldiers)-1):
        offset = findSoldierOffset(soldiers, i)
        offsetX = peasant.pos.x + offset.x
        offsetY = peasant.pos.y + offset.y
        pos =  {'x': offsetX, 'y': offsetY}
        hero.command(soldiers[i], 'move',pos) #<-- hero placeholder needs something to command.
        # Command the soldier to move to the new offset position.
        # Add the offset.x and offset.y to the peasant's pos.x and pos.y.
    # The hero should keep pace with the peasant!
    hero.moveXY(hero.pos.x +.2, hero.pos.y)

So, I’m not good at coding, but I do know of some who are good. And I will call them here. @abc, @Eric_Tang, @098765432123. Hope this helps, and have a great time on the discourse!


I don’t think I can help but can I please have a link to the level?

Sorry I can’t help, it is a Subscriber level… @Deadpool198 are you able to help?

Can you guys tell me if you don’t want to be summoned by me anymore?

Oh no it is fine I just didn’t know if it was a sub level or not or if I have passed it or not.

I’m also working on this level, and I just figured out the problem with your code: you don’t define soldiers. if you said:

soldiers = hero.findFriends

it would work I think.

never mind, it doesn’t work.

This was from a year ago…
