|Summary||0002491: Consider method for mappers to change entity properties in-game|
|Description||It would be useful if mappers could change more entity properties while the FM is running.|
This post and thread relate....
I'll add a couple of suggested spawnargs later
|Tags||No tags attached.|
Here are a couple of suggested spawnargs to test on:
used_by_added (or similar suffix)
|Could properties be removed? eg, bind|
|@Greebo, can this be closed?|
This is the current method:
This is not right, because "spawnarg" as an argument for spawning an entity, it is not a properly of living entity.
Indeed, it is possible to add script events which will change the actual properties at the moment you call it, and that's the right way to proceed.
If you change spawnargs, the only proper way for the change to have effect is respawning the entity.
Of course, any information gathered during entity lifetime is lost (sometimes it is a problem, sometimes not).
This approach is used for hot reload, so that mappers can edit their map and apply changes in-game (0005316).
Even for this use case, it was never deemed perfectly reliable, and for gameplay changes it should never be used.
I tried to apply some spawnarg changes without respawning an entity, but it generates more problems that it solves, and only works for trivial properties like position/orientation.
