|0003048||The Dark Mod||Coding||public||05.03.2012 19:53||06.03.2012 22:50|
|Product Version||TDM 1.07|
|Target Version||TDM 1.08||Fixed in Version||TDM 1.08|
|Summary||0003048: coding for target spawn entity|
|Description|| Need support for targetting an attached entity.|
ie: mapper added lever base entity to map. Links base to lamp.
base spawns attached lever entity, spawned entity works on lamp in game.
possibly frob/peer link? So player actually frobs base plate but base plate and lever both highlight/vice-versa.
|Additional Information|| Could be useful for many items.|
switch model combos, machines with switch, lamps with switch, chests with lids and levers (might solve rotation issues for authors),
|Tags||No tags attached.|
The "add_link" spawnarg supports this, but an additional difficulty is that when defined inside an entityDef, the name of the currently created entity is not yet know (until it is actually spawned).
Technically, it is possible to give a spawned entity a name - the "world" entity does this. However, names must be unique, and you could never spawn more than one entity that way. So this cannot be used.
The add_link spawnarg can technically use the "self" entity when you leave the name off, so "add_link :attached:flame to " would correctly find the attached flame on the "" entity (e.g. itself) and link it to "" (e.g. itself), however, this syntax is quite wierd.
So adding support for "self:attached:flame to self" is definitely needed.
|The code change is in and there is an example entity and a testmap. However, the lever does send a signal to the light, which in turn sends a signal back to the lever, which induces a flip-flop loop. That needs to be dealt with, probably in the tdm_light_holder script object.|
|The trigger loop is dealt with in the tdm_light_holder script, so apart from possible trigger loops in attached-and-bound-at-the-same-time movers, this works as intended now. Lamps with auto-attached levers/switches are now possible ;)|
