Different settings in certain places

Post by big_daddy2 » Tue Apr 14, 2009 9:32 pm

Hi, i think it would be awesome if you could make a zone then add certain features to it. Kind of like adding a -set _*your command here* but in a zone object. With this you could have it rain in a certain spot, have more gravity in a spot, or do almost anything. Think about it...

You could achieve an effect somewhat like adding more gravity by having an object with a physics driver with a negative linear z value. E.G:

Code: Select all

physics
  linear 0 0 -5
end

A fair amount of internal code would have to change for this to happen. Basically we'd have to keep a set of those variables for each tank, as they would be different depending on what zone you are in. Right now the BZDB variables are global and apply to everyone.

We have talked about per tank gravity/speed/accelerations and it is something we'd like to do at some point.
