Summary0005053: Lanternbot still has lit appearance after 'knockout'
DescriptionWhen a lanternbot is 'killed', parm7 is faded to 0 by tdm_ai_lanternbot::onDeath(), which fades down the bright yellow flickering of the lantern glass surface using the lanternbot_lit material.

However, lanternbots can also be disabled with the blackjack, and when that happens the actual light goes out but the lit material on the body is unchanged.
Additional InformationSpeaking of lanternbot_lit colouration, why are the diffuse colour parms multiplied by each other?

        blend diffusemap
        map models/md5/chars/steambots/bc_lanternbot
        rgb parm0 * parm1 * parm2

The lanternbot has default "_color" "0.7 0.64 0" so presumably the result is rgb 0.
TagsNo tags attached.

By the way, a live lantern bot can be found in "In The Black" FM by executing: setviewpos 4448 3744 16

Added "ko_immune" "1" to base steambot in svn rev 15760.
It was intended that bots cannot be knocked out, but "ko_zone" "" has no effect because damage zones are not defined (and are consequently all empty strings too).
The bot is also immune to gas, so I guess nobody will ever knock it out again =)

Intended or not, that's a pretty major gameplay change in the difficulty of dealing with an AI that's been around for years. Did you consult anyone else?

When wesp5 wanted oil lamps made snuffable through frobbing to bring them in line with candles, his proposal was rejected on the grounds that maps' gameplay design shouldn't be changed retroactively, even if in principle the idea was sound.

Well, I wrote about it on public forums.
Speaking of lantern bots, the difficulty change is minor, since they can be killed with a sword just as easily.

Oh, I see. Linking to thread:

Fair point, most missions do provide the sword and blackjack at the same time, though it isn't universal.
