# [SOLVED] HELP! Reindeer Tender

Hi… I know that um…

But I have a different problem.

Here is my code:

``````# This is the array of pen positions
penPositions = [ {"x":20,"y":24}, {"x":28,"y":24}, {"x":36,"y":24}, {"x":44,"y":24}, {"x":52,"y":24} ]

# Use this array to keep track of each pen's reindeer.
penOccupants = [ None, None, None, None, None, ]

# And this array contains our reindeer.
friends = hero.findFriends()

# Figure out which reindeer are already in their pens.
for deerIndex in range(len(friends)):
reindeer = friends[deerIndex]

# For each position check if it matches a reindeer.
for penIndex in range(len(penPositions)):
penPos = penPositions[penIndex]

if penPos.x == reindeer.pos.x and penPos.y == reindeer.pos.y:
# Put the reindeer in occupants at penIndex
penOccupants[penIndex] = reindeer
# Remove the reindeer from the friends array.
friends[reindeer] = None
# break out of the inner loop here:
break
pass

# Assign the remaining reindeer to new positions.
for deerIndex in range(len(friends)):
# If the reindeer is null, use continue:
if not deerIndex:
continue

# Look for the first pen with nothing.
for occIndex in range(len(penOccupants)):
# If there is nothing, the pen is open:
if not penOccupants[occIndex]:
# Put the reindeer in the occupants array.
occupants[occIndex] = friends[deerIndex]
# Command the reindeer to move to the pen.
hero.command(friends[deerIndex], "move", target)
# break out early so we don't reassign:
break
pass

``````

What’s happening is that the reindeer-
Don’t do anything.

Help would be appreciated,

I can wait

Chars are made of grain and dairy

I found a few mistakes:
In the first for,

You should remove the reindeer from the friends array (which is deerIndex), so it should be `friends[deerIndex]=None`.

Here, you should add the reindeer in the occupants array, and here, you should use what you did in the first `for`s, the `occupants[occIndex]` should become a reindeer, which is `occupants[occIndex] = reindeer`.
And the final mistake, is here:

Where do you command the reindeer move? Try to think of this yourself.

And sorry for the late reply.

Thanks, I’ll try it.

Ah… I reset the code and forgot to change that

Sorry everyone. I’ve been away recently and so I’ve not been active enough to test it. I should be able to today though. Thanks for the reminders, and @moonwatcher348, I’ve not been active on the discourse longer than you

Thanks, it worked really well. While inputting the position I used `deerIndex` for the first attempt, which didn’t work, but after changing it everything was fine.

Yeah… turns out something was wrong with my code again

Any ideas?

Here is the mistake. It should be the unit, not the index.

I tried it (without looking at the answer), and submitted it this time, and now it works,

Thanks again,
