Hey guys,
There doesn't seem to be a lot of info on formations so I'll post what I came up with today.

I run with 4 bots and here are two macro's i use to align them slightly spread out either EAST/WEST or North/South

2ME N/S
Rich (BB code):
/bct toon1 //moveto loc ${Math.Calc[${Me.Y}-0]} ${Math.Calc[${Me.X}+10]}
/bct toon2 //moveto loc ${Math.Calc[${Me.Y}-0]} ${Math.Calc[${Me.X}+5]}
/bct toon3 //moveto loc ${Math.Calc[${Me.Y}-0]} ${Math.Calc[${Me.X}-5]}
/bct toon4 //moveto loc ${Math.Calc[${Me.Y}-0]} ${Math.Calc[${Me.X}-10]}
2ME E/W
Rich (BB code):
/bct toon1 //moveto loc ${Math.Calc[${Me.Y}+10]} ${Math.Calc[${Me.X}+0]}
/bct toon2 //moveto loc ${Math.Calc[${Me.Y}+5]} ${Math.Calc[${Me.X}+0]}
/bct toon3 //moveto loc ${Math.Calc[${Me.Y}-5]} ${Math.Calc[${Me.X}-0]}
/bct toon4 //moveto loc ${Math.Calc[${Me.Y}-10]} ${Math.Calc[${Me.X}-0]}
Note: I left the -0's there so you could see the syntax.

I hope you guys come up with some cool formations and post them here:D

I was going to figure that out, but then I noticed they just all face the direction they were going.
If you spam it while moving they kinda do a nice formation march. lol

you could /face fast heading ${Me.Heading.Degrees} to have them face the same direction as you

How would you activate this? Would you put that in a EQ social macro?

yes, you put all these commands in socials. these commands use the EQBC server so you have to set that up.
Start it and then use /bccmd connect on each toon.

To tell one toon to do something use /bct name //command
everyone but you is /bcg //command
everyone including you is /bcga //command

Just run the /halfmoon 15 command in my version of kiss (/mac kissassist1004e15) and they will half circle around whatever char that runs the command and face his heading. It's a bind so no macros other than kiss needed(uses eqbc) 15 means how many feet away from the char you want them.

yeah been trying to figure out how to use cosinus and sinus to get em to form like an arrow position, tank in front, melee dps behind and to the left and right, and healer in the center behind main tank and caster lined up behind the healer. but i have a brain that has no smarts in it.

To be honest, and no disrespect Maskoi. You should use eqmules version of KA if you don't want your puller targeting mobs when pulling even though they aren't in LOS

Can you elaborate on this? Using MQ2Nav Los is only important when you get up to the mob.

What did you come up with? I was thinking of making a formations macro with all kinds of patterns etc. maybe even a run in formation type setup.

You get both when you click the update button. KissAssist.mac is the RG version of Kissassist, and Kissassist10004e15.mac is EQMules version of kiss. The difference would be RG version of kissassist is a more generic version of kiss, and the other has more influence on how someone thinks everyone should play the game. Either way you can't go wrong they both are good macros.

eqmules edition is a spur, meaning it has different features in it. Both eqmules and mask's are included in the compile and updated. You can search for mule's edition to find out about more features.
