Horizontal Teleporters

Post by Dontkillme » Sun Jan 10, 2010 6:45 pm

I'm trying to make horizontal teleporters for 3.0 but they won't work.
Does anyone know how to make horizontal teleporters?

One recent svn revision had a basic description, I think there's more somewhere on the forums or wiki or will be soon.

Please explain what you are trying, and what is going wrong. I have made 'horizontal teleporters' in 3.0. You use a mesh face as a teleporter, so in reality they can be any shape, size or angle, just like a mesh.

There ARE docs around somewhere that explain the additions to the mesh which allow you do do this. Not only are there options to use mesh faces as teles; you can choose to allow just tanks, or just shots; only allow tanks from a specific team; have multiple teles in one link; choose whether or not to display the tele on the radar, and whether or not you see the 'glowing' effect when you approach it.

Something that should be added to the bzw.5 manpage:
MeshFace teleporter links use the drivethrough and shootthrough
properties to determine the types of objects can pass through
the links.


A few notes about horizontal teleporters:

1. linkSrcTouch is probably the best approach (without 'passable')

2. Because a tank with no horizontal velocity could just bounce
indefinitely between horizontal teles (assuming no linked
vertical ones), you can use the tankMinAngle to make sure
that only tanks with a horizontal velocity can use a teleporter.

3. To make a surface that forces tanks to jump if they go too
quickly, you can use the tankMinSpeed parameter, and force them
to jump if they successfully pass through the teleporter (just send
it back to the same mesh face, with some geometry inversions and
a tankDstVelOffset). There are actually lots of tricks along this vein
that can be done with the new teleporters.



Excerpts from the current bzw.5 manpage...

BZW.5 link section:

Code: Select all

       The Link object
       Adds a route to teleport between a linkSrc and a linkDst.

       # Teleporter names are terminated with either :f (forward)
       # or :b (backwards). The forwards link points to 0 degrees,
       # and the backwards link points to 180. Mesh defined links
       # use their face ':linkName' string instead of ':f' or ':b'.
       # Links are made by pattern matching the teleporter names.
       # The '*' and '?' globbing characters can be used to make
       # multiple matches. If there are multiple destination matches,
       # the destination will be selected randomly from the list
       # of unblocked candidates. If links are created in a group
       # definition, they can link to teleporters outside of the
       # definition using the absolute linking syntax (prefix the
       # teleporter name with the '/' character, for example:
       # '/other_group/shinyTele:f').

       # NOTE: "bzfs -setforced debugLinks 3" will print the linkage table.

Here's some working bzw code. Maybe it will help.

Take a look at my Defender game mode concept.

Thinking is not an automatic process. A man can choose to think or to let his mind stagnate, or he can choose actively to turn against his intelligence, to evade his knowledge, to subvert his reason. If he refuses to think, he courts disaster: he cannot with impunity reject his means of perceiving reality.

You need correct links
When I started your map file it outputted this:

Code: Select all

linkdefs: link
linkdefs:   addSrc /cylinder8:telefront
linkdefs:   addDst normaltele
linkdefs: end

linkdefs: link
linkdefs:   addSrc /cylinder8:teleback
linkdefs:   addDst normaltele
linkdefs: end

LinkSrcIDs:
  linkSrc 0: /normaltele:b
  linkSrc 1: /normaltele:f

LinkDstIDs:
  linkDst 0: /normaltele:f
  linkDst 1: /normaltele:b

Potential Links:
  /normaltele:b
  /normaltele:f
  /$g_tele_0/cylinder8:telefront
  /$g_tele_0/cylinder8:teleback

LinkMap:
  src normaltele:b
    dst normaltele:f
  src normaltele:f
    dst normaltele:b
So you need to change your links to this:

Code: Select all

link
src /$g_tele_0/cylinder8:telefront
dst normaltele:f
end

link 
src /$g_tele_0/cylinder8:teleback
dst normaltele:b
end
And you'll need return links if you want the normal tele to go to the cylinder:

Code: Select all

link
src normaltele:f
dst /$g_tele_0/cylinder8:telefront
end

link
src normaltele:b
dst /$g_tele_0/cylinder8:teleback
end
