Stumped Gerbil Asks Dumb Question...

Post by Gerbil » Fri Jan 30, 2004 8:07 pm

I was on a couple of new maps with shots originating from objects. One had normal shots and one had multiple shockwaves.

How I do that? Is this a map feature and if so how do you tag it in map?

Thank you.

It's in the man page (although not very detailed). It's a new map object. You write it like this:

weapon
name example_weapon
position 0.0 0.0 0.0
rotation 0.0
initdelay 10.0
delay 10.0 3.0 5.0 3.0
type V
end

initdelay is the delay from the server starts until the weapon starts firing, delay is a sequence of delays between shots, type is the type of the weapon (V, SW, GM etc). Position and rotation should be obvious, but I'm not sure what name is.

name is just a way to identify that world weapon, from say another one within the map......helps organize

Hey chik, what would you want exactly?
I've already got that Coliseum map put
together (it's up right now), and I'm no
stranger to designing with the world weapons
(did the fireworms and firerings maps). Just
give me the specs, and I'll give ya that goods.

Hmmm, sounds cool. What server(s) are currently using world weapons?
