Summary0000322: Loading zones
DescriptionTo make the request official:

Basically, the ability to go back and forth between properly linked levels, as in TDS.

Would certainly be a very useful thing to have, and from some discussion on the board, it sounds quite possible to do.

You can switch the map using the script:

sys.sessionCommand("map ...")

or an idTargetSessionCommand. Haven't tested the latter, though.

Cool find!

Does it keep game states persistent though?

Also, we'd want a way to specify the player's location after transition back and forth. Maybe http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=Setting_up_Campaigns#Scripting is a starting point...

https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Info_landmark and https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Trigger_transition look like a fancier implementation (and presumably a lot more work).

I don't know for sure, as I haven't tested it. But as Doom 3 used them it is likely the case. In addition, we have persistent args that could be used. I'll test it during the week.

No idea how portable their implementation might be, but if anyone fancies a rummage: https://sourceforge.net/p/arxendofsun/code/HEAD/tree/
