AMC TC contains a selection of new effects tied to the sector effector. Most of them are new but it also offers some new functionality on old effects as well.
Lotag 6 -SubwayEdit
Subway sprites can be made to play a few other sounds now. Give it a spritepal of 3 to play a different train noise, a spritepal of 9 to play a boat soundeffect, and a spritepal of 2 to play a bubbling noise.
Lotag 29 - Wave EffectEdit
By giving this sprite a palette of 3, it will apply the wave effect to the ceiling of the sector as well as the floor. Used in Abyss, in the Flesh tower for the wavy corridoor effect.
Lotag 46 - Jump padEdit
This effect pushes the player forward then up in the direction that the SE is pointing as soon
as the player steps onto the SE's sector. The hitag of this sprite determines the height that
the player is pushed - a value of 5000 pushes the player quite high, but the further away the
place you want the player to land the higher this should be. If you don't want the wind sound to
play when the player steps onto the SE's sector, give the SE any spritepal apart from 0. For best
results, ensure that the sector with the fan is higher or lower than the one around it.
Lotag 51 - Change Sector's floor texture when activatedEdit
This effect can be combined with SE31 to make platforms that change to a texture when activated - first set up the
SE31 effect. Now place a SE in the same sector and give it a lotag of 51 and a hitag the same as the activator sprite. Now, give it an extra value (Press F8 on it in 2D mode in Mapster) equal to the texture you want it to turn to. Give it an XVEL of 1 to turn on or off floor expansion (texture size basically) Pointing the SE51 downwards will change the sector to a tag of 0 incase it starts off as a water sector, and pointing it to the right will turn it into a water sector. Like the SE50, the sector floor will take the shade and pal of the SE so make sure to change that incase you want the sector to change shade or colour once activated. This effect isn't limited to SE31's though - however another effect must be activated with the same activator sprite as the one set to activate the SE51 for it to work.
Lotag 52 - Changes Sector's floor texture when finished activatingEdit
This effect is almost identical to SE51 except that it changes the floor's texture AFTER the floor has finished moving. It's set up is exactly the same as the one above (this effect could be used to visually empty pools of water or chemicals for example)
Lotag 53 - Change sector to water sectorEdit
This effect will give the sector a lotag of 2 (or if it already has a lotag of 2, it changes it back to 0 - you can override this by pointing the sprite down) once activated (Another effect must be activated with the same hitag as this for it to work)
Lotag 54 - Change wall textureEdit
When activated, this will change the wall that the SE is pointed at's texture. Give this sprite a hitag equal to the activator being used, and change it's extra value to the texture you want the wall to change to - the sprite will also copy over it's shade and palette. To change a wall's masked texture, give this sprite a YVEL as well.
Lotag 55 - Change ceiling textureEdit
When activated this will change the ceiling's texture to whatever you set the SE sprite's extra to. It'll also take on this sprite's Shade and palette.
Lotag 56 - Change sector's tagEdit
When activated with an activator sprite, this will change the sector's lotag to whatever you set this sprite's extra as.
Lotag 71 - Sector lowers when player is standing on itEdit
To set this effect up, first build the sector that you want this effect to take place on.
For example we'll assume you have a platform surrounded by Lava. Texture your sector appropriatly,
than lower it so it's at the same height as the rest of the Lava. Now, place a Sector Effector in that
sector and give it a lotag of 71. Raise the Sector effector to the height you want the platform to be
when it's fully raised. Give the SE a hitag equal to the texture you want it to change to when it's
at it's bottom (For example, if you want it to change to the default lava texture give it a hitag of
The sector's floor will change to the shade and pal of the Sector Effector when it's reached the lowest point, so give the SE the same pal and shade as the sector you want the platform to look like when it's submerged. If you want the sector to become a water sector when it's submerged, change the SE's angle so it's pointing down. Finally, if you want the sector to not raise again after the player's stepped on it, give it a extra of 1 (To edit a sprite's extra value, press F8 on it in 2D mode in Mapster)
Lotag 80 - SkyboxEdit
This sprite can be used to create a 3D skybox (note however that there are several glitches associated with zoom, so use at your discretion) Create the skybox, then place a sector effector in the middle and give a lotag of 80. Give the sprite a palette of 1 for a box that 'moves' with the player (Similar to Half-life 2's) The Hitag determines the scale, and defaults to 64 if nothing is set. and a spritepal of 0 for a box that's stationary (Similar to Unreal Tournaments) A spritepal of 2 will make a rotating effect - the SE sprite will rotate in a orbit around it's original starting point. The hitag determines the scale of the circle. (See DMEPION and INVEPION for examples)
Lotag 81 - Skybox shade effectEdit
Placing this sprite in a sector will make it darken and brighten depending on what shade the skybox sector effector is. Only useful combined with a rotating skybox (For an example, see DMEPION or INVEPION and stand in the outer ship section when the ship passes into the cave)
Lotag 84 - Shiny wallEdit
This effect could be used to simulate a shiny wall effect. By pointing it at a wall with a masked effect the texture will pan and shift depending on how far the player is and what angle they're viewing it at.
Special Effect SpritesEdit
Many new effects are possible in the AMC TC, utilising new sprites. This page lists many of the sprites and what they're capable of; remember to press F8 on the sprite in 2D mode to be able to edit all of it's values, many of which are needed to make new effects work. You can change a sprite's extra in 3D mode by pressing ' and M on the sprite as well. The tilenumber of each sprite is listed next to it's name in this document. You can also access many of AMC TC's new sprites by going to the tile select screen and pressing 'T'
AMC TC effects require the full use of all of a sprite's variables. Alongside the Hitag and Lotag which you should already be familiar with, there are a host of other variables including the Extra value of a sprite (which can be modified in 3D mode by placing the cursor in the sprite and pressing ' and M) To edit all of these, press F8 on the sprite in 2D mode. You can edit everything available about a sprite here.
Character Spawnpoint - 3712Edit
Each character can be assigned their own spawn point in a map - place this sprite in the desired location, and give it a pal for what character you wish to start there from.
|Spritepal 5||Rusty Nails|
Autosave - 9412Edit
This sprite saves the player's game to the last slot in the list. It can be activated in 2 ways - just place the sprite and it'll be activated when the player steps near it, or give it a hitag equal to an activator sprite to have it triggered when something is activated. Note that the player can have autosave disabled via the AMC_Settings.txt file
Weapon/equipment strip - 3610Edit
This sprite can be used to strip the player of their weapons and equipment, either at the start of the level or when activated. Simply place it to strip the player of their weapons when the level loads, or give it a hitag equal to an activator sprite to trigger it. If you just want the player's equipment taken give this sprite a pal of 1, and if you just want the player's weapons taken give it a spritepal of 2. A spritepal of 3 will play a unique sound and display a quote onscreen whilst taking all items and inventory. Finally a spritepal of 4 will take a player's weapons and items, and then give them any items they assigned to that character on the loadout screen.
Activate Level - 3658Edit
This sprite starts a level in the same volume when activated with a activator sprite. Give it a hitag value equal to the activator you wish to check, and then a lotag for the level number you wish to start.
Debris Spawner - 3624Edit
This sprite spawns a selection of debris when hit by an explosive - you can hide a few of these in explosive sectors, and when it blows up these sprites will spew out debris (depending on the type you set it - change it's lotag to determine what kind of debris spawns)
|Lotag 1||Spawn Wood|
|Lotag 2||Spawn Rocks|
|Lotag 3||Spawn Rocks (Type 2)|
Hovering the mouse cursor over the sprite in 3D mode will show a small picture of the debris being spawned in the upper right of the screen.
Player duplicate - 1404Edit
This sprite can be used to create either a duplicate of the character being played, or of one of your choice. To do the former, simply place the sprite and it'll change to look like the character being played. To do the latter, give it one of the following extra values to determine who to look like. Give the sprite a hitag of 1 to make it visible only during cutscenes (During gameplay, it will be invisible)
|Extra 5||Rusty Nails|
The duplicate can also be made to move and run in the direction it's facing in for a specified period of time, useful for cutscenes. First give this sprite a Lotag - this tag will activate the sprite when triggered. Then give it a YVEL to determine how long to run for - a value of 30 is about 1 second, so it's worth experimenting.
Force Player - 3805Edit
Can be used to force a certain player. To choose who to force, give it the right spritepal by checking the following table. This sprite can also be activated by a activator sprite, effectively allowing you to change characters on the fly. Just give it a lotag value equal to an activator sprite. Finally give it an extra value of 1 if it's the first time you're switching to a character in a map. This gives them their proper health level and any equipment set.
|Spritepal 0||James Stanfield|
|Spritepal 1||Zaxtor Znort|
|Spritepal 2||Merlijn Oostrum|
|Spritepal 5||Rusty Nails|
Map Location - 3831Edit
This sprite can change what planet appears in the backdrop of the player select screen, as well as the main menu when paused. It defaults to Earth, but by changing the lotag to whatever tile you wish, it will be changed to that. For example, giving this sprite a lotag of 8450 will change it to Mars. Most planet pictures are contained in Tiles033, which is tile 8448 and upwards.
Countdown Timer - 3806Edit
Using this sprite, you can create a timer that appears in the player's screen which when it runs out will either kill the player or activate certain effects. This effect can be activated either at the level's start or by an activator. Give the lotag of the sprite the same value as the activator if you wish for the latter, or leave it's lotag at 0 for the former. Give it a hitag equal to the amount of minutes you wish to give the player. Give the actor a extra value if you want to activate things when the timer is up, or just leave it at zero to kill the player (the screen also whites out when this happens) Finally, if you want to stop the timer at any point, place another timer sprite and give it a spritepal of 1 and a lotag equal to the activator sprite you want to trigger it.
Mission Failed - 7679Edit
This sprite creates a mission failure scenario; the screen will fade to greyscale, and then the level will restart. To use simply give this sprite the same hitag as an activator sprite.
Ladders - 3803Edit
Code by DeeperThought from DukePlus; place 2 of these where you want the ladder/climbable object to go (Point the sprite towards the wall/item you want to climb) Place one at the bottom of the object, and one at the top (place the upper one a bit above where it should stop since that's where the player will 'get off') and give them the same hitag. Give the bottom one a lotag equal to a sound to play (tags 903 and 904 are metal ladders for instance) Finally, give the bottom sprite a XVEL (press F8 in 2D mode) of 1 to allow the player to slide down it, which is much quicker than climbing down but may not be appropriate for some surfaces (such as a rockface, vines or a ropeladder) Check the following table for a list of some climbing sounds.
|Lotag 903||Metal ladder 1|
|Lotag 904||Metal ladder 2|
|Lotag 906||Rope ladder|
|Lotag 408||Wood Ladder|
Mission Objectives - 3645Edit
The player can be set mission objectives (which they can check by pressing the key bound to 'Mission objectives') Place this sprite, than give it a hitag equal to the objective you want to set. Give it an extra tag equal to the 'position' you want it to take in the objective screen (so 0 for the top and 5 for the bottom) The player can have up to 6 current objectives at a time. The objective is added when the player goes near the sprite (invisible ingame) To complete an object, give the sprite a pal of 1, and give it a extra tag equal to the objective you want to complete.
|Hitag 300||Eliminate hostile activity!|
|Hitag 301||Try and find Survivors|
|Hitag 302||Try and find out what went wrong|
|Hitag 304||Rendevouz with your team|
|Hitag 305||Make your way through the area|
|Hitag 306||Destroy the Leader|
|Hitag 307||Destroy the Reactor|
|Hitag 308||Destroy the Base|
Wall Scroll - 3828Edit
The wallscroll sprite can make wall textures scroll either up, down, left or right. Just place this sprite close to the wall you want to change, and make sure it's sprite tag is pointing at the wall. Note that the lotag/hitag you give determines the speed that the texture scrolls at. 16 moves the texture quite fast in most instances, so it's worth experimenting around that value to see what you'll get.
|Spritepal 0, give Hitag||Make wall texture move down|
|Spritepal 0, give Lotag||Make wall texture move left|
|Spritepal 1, give Hitag||Make wall texture move up|
|Spritepal 1, give Lotag||Make wall texture move right|
Floor/Ceiling Scroll - 3829Edit
The floor/ceiling scroll sprite can make the floor and/or ceiling scroll, sorta like the Sector Effector conveyor belt (but without moving any of the sprites in the sector) It works similar to the Wall scroll texture - give it a hitag to move the texture forward, and a lotag to move to the side (Again, the value of the Hitag/Lotag changes the speed it scrolls) Give the spite a spritepal of 0 to make the ceiling scroll, give it a spritepal of 1 to make the floor scroll, or give it a spritepal of 2 to make both scroll.
Slow-motion trigger - 10150Edit
Will activate the slow-motion effect you sometimes get when headshotting or gibbing an enemy; is activated by it's hitag. The Lotag determines how long for (maximum value is 128) The value that the ingame effect uses is 40, so it's worth experimenting to see how long is enough.
Spooky trigger - 10151Edit
Will activate the 'spooked' effect when a player is hit by a ghostly enemy; is activated by it's hitag.
Random Sounds - 3728Edit
This sprite can either play a specific of sounds randomly, or up to 5 sounds defined by yourself (randomly at intervals determined by the sprite's lotag). For the former feature, simply give the sprite a spritepal equal to the sound 'set' you want to play.
|Spritepal 0||Woodland sounds|
|Spritepal 1||Metal Groaning sounds|
|Spritepal 2||City Sounds|
|Spritepal 3||Spooky Sounds|
|Spritepal 4||Hell/Abyss sounds|
|Spritepal 5||Warfare sounds|
|Spritepal 6||PA system sounds|
For the latter feature, first give the sprite a lotag value equal to the amount of time it checks to play a sound. 30 equals 1 second - a value like 150 (5 seconds) is good enough, although if you have more sounds playing a higher number is better. After that, set the sprite's hitag, extra, xvel, yvel and zvel to the number of the sounds you want to play. Note that you don't need to play 5 sounds - you can just set the sprite's hitag and extra if you just want to play from 2 sounds for example.
Monster Spawner - 10564Edit
The monster spawner can create a stream of a single type of monster, either by being activated or active from the start. It's Hitag is equal to the activator sprite you wish to activate it. Leave this at 0 if you want it to be on at the start of the level. The Lotag determines the amount of times this sprite will spawn an enemy. It's Extra value is the sprite spawned (so for example to spawn a Pigcop, give it an Extra value of 2000 - note that this sprite can spawn anything, not just monsters - you could also use it to spawn items and stuff for singleplayer and co-op games) The YVEL value determines the amount of time between spawns - 28 is roughly 1 second. Finally, give this sprite a spritepal of 3 if you wish for it to only spawn if it can see a player. Hovering the mouse cursor over this sprite in build will show you a picture of what it's been set to spawn in the upper right of the screen.
Move Player - 3713Edit
This simple sprite moves the player to it's exact location and angle when activated. Simply give it a hitag equal to the activator sprite you want it to be activated by. One use for this is to move a player to a different location when a cutscene is finished.
Trigger Only if char - 3649Edit
This sprite, when the player gets close, will trigger an activator ONLY if you are playing as whichever character you specify. Give it a lotag equal to the activator you wish to activate, and then one of the following pals.
|Spritepal 5||Rusty Nails|
Comm Link - 3613Edit
This sprite, when used, 'binds' a activator to the 'Check Mission key' for 10 seconds. Ingame, this is used to create comm-link conversations between characters that the player can choose to listen to. Place this sprite, and give it a lotag equal to the activator sprite you wish for it to activate. Then, either give it a hitag equal to an activator sprite if you wish for it to be acivated, or leave the hitag at 0 for it to simply be activated when the player gets close. Comm-link conversations are essentially just cutscenes, set to a specific room. You can copy up the map 'For Providence' and find a few examples of comm-link conversations there.
Locked Door - 3744Edit
The Locked door sprite simulates a locked door - if the player presses space a sound defined by the sprite's pal and a message stating 'locked' will appear. This sprite can simply be used for atmosphere, but it also has 2 other uses as well. If given a hitag, the door can be unlocked using a generic key item (Generic keys can be used for all doors locked in this way) Give the activator sprite of the door you wish to unlock the same hitag as this sprite. If given a lotag (again equal to an activator you wish to activate) than the door can be opened if the player kicks it. Finally, if you give this sprite an XVEL value equal to an activator sprite, it will disapear when that activator is used - this can be used to display locked messages for normal doors that can be unlocked. Pressing space on the door in 3D mode will play the sound it's been set to.
|Spritepal 0||Standard Door locked|
|Spritepal 1||Gate locked|
|Spritepal 2||Standard Door locked 2|
|Spritepal 3||Hi-tech Door locked|
|Spritepal 4||Standard Door locked 3|
|Spritepal 5||Standard Door locked 4|
Door Transport - 3623Edit
This sprite can be used to fake a transition between 2 points. When the player walks near the sprite and presses use, the screen fades to black (Or you can set it to use the AMC TC Teleport effect) and after a amount of time (which can be specified by you) he appears at another point you specified.
To use this effect, you need to place a sprite 3623 at the 'entry point and a sprite 3629 at the exit point. Give the entry sprite a unique lotag, and give the exit sprite the same number for it's hitag. To make a sound play when the player uses a point, change it's XVEL (use F8 in 2D mode) to the number of the sound you wish to play when used (For example 852 is a door opening and closing) and ZVEL to the sound you wish to play when the player has 'finished' going through the door. Finally change it's YVEL to the amount of time the screen should be black for (This defaults to 26, which equals about 1 second) The Door sound mentioned before is around 2 seconds long, so setting it to 52 will sync it closely. To make the screen use the AMC transport effect instead of fading to black, give the entry point a spritepal of 1. Pressing space on the door in 3D mode will transport you to it's exit point, meaning you don't have to go ingame to test if the door works.
These fake doors can be locked with a Padlock sprite (8038) - simply give the Door entrance a unique hitag, and place the padlock sprite infront of the door. Give it a lotag equal to the hitag of the Door entrance sprite, and then give it a hitag corresponding to the key you want it to use:
|64||Normal key 1|
|128||Normal key 2|
|256||Normal key 3|
|512||Normal key 4|
|1024||Normal key 5|
You can also activate a fake flashlight effect by giving the Door transport leading to the area a spritepal of 2, and the Door transport leading away from it a spritepal of 3. The torch's power is shown in the player's inventory slot, as well as their inventory. If the battery runs out, the torch will recharge back up to low power after a few seconds to prevent them from getting truly stuck.
Time Portal - 11772Edit
Time portals work the same as door transports; replace the Door transport sprite with a timeportal sprite instead. Only James can see and use these.
Hacking station - 12527Edit
Hacking stations work the same as door trasnports; replace the Door transport sprite with a VR booth sprite instead. Only Geoffrey and Mikko can use these.
Rain/Snow Spawner - 3696Edit
With code from Duke Plus by DeeperThought, this handy sprite can create rain or snow effects for the whole map. Just place it anywhere in the map, then give it a positive extra for rain (From 1 to 32 - the higher the number the more rain) or a negative number for snow (-2 to -32, the lower the number the more snow spawned) For rain the pal + translucency of the sprite will dicate what the spawned rain looks like. If you wish for rain to only appear for that paralexed texture, give the rain/snow sprite a hitag of 1.
If you give this sprite a lotag of 1 it will search through the level and replace a selection of standard Duke floor tiles with rainy versions if they're placed outside. It will also create a rain noise throughout the whole level (A softer noise plays when inside, and the standard Duke noise plays when outside) This feature is very useful for many reasons - if you want to test and see how your level looks like with rain but don't want to manually place rain noises and textures yourself incase it doesn't work, this will save you lots of time. It's also useful incase you'd like to play some usermaps with rain features added as well. The only drawback to this feature is that the rain noises have very sudden transitions unlike the gradual fading you'd get from manually placing sound effect points, and sprite textures aren't replaced with rain versions. Following here is a picture of textures that are replaced with rain versions:
Included in the Extra folder is some layered .psp files incase you'd like to make your own rain textures (wherether for AMC TC or any other Project) If you give the rain sprite a hitag of 1, it will only spawn rain/snow in sectors with the same paralexed texture as the one it's placed in. This can be useful if you want multiple skies in your map (however, please keep in mind that you can't rain rain AND snow in the same level at the moment)
Rain/Snow Starter - 3696Edit
This sprite can be used to start a rain/snow effect in the map. To use, place a Rain/snow spawner and leave it's extra at 0. Place this sprite and give it the same extra you would of given the Rain/snow spawner sprite. When the player gets near this sprite, the rain effect will trigger. To replace certain textures (shown above) with rainy versions, give this sprite a YVEL of 1.
Rain/Snow Sound - 3694Edit
This sprite will simply play a raining sound if rain is active in your map. It plays either an inside rain sound effect or an outside rain effect depending on where it's placed. This can be used in combination with the Rain/Snow starter or regular rain.
Dark/Storm - 12430Edit
This sprite can change the entire outside area of a map to low visibility (and back to normal). Give the sprite a hitag equal to an activator sprite; than either change it's spritepal to 3 to turn the map to default visiblity levels, or leave it at 0 to make the map dark.
Make Switch - 9456Edit
This sprite starts invisible ingame; once activated it can turn into any switch of your choosing. Simply give it a hitag of an activatorsprite, and the lotag value that you want the switch it to transform into to activate. Give the ZVEL value the tilenum of the switch you wish to use. Note that default Duke switches won't animate using this sprite.
Sprite Lift - 10511Edit
This sprite can be used to create elevators consisting purely of sprites. First, create your elevator construct, giving every sprite it consists of a unique YVEL value. Once this is done, place 2 Sprite lift sprites - one at the top of the life's path, one at the bottom. Give the top one the same hitag as the lift sprite's YVEL, and give the bottom one the same lotag. Place some switches near the lift (the lift can also have a switch on it itself, as long as it has a YVEL) and give them the same lotag. Finally, create a small sector near the elevator. Give it a lotag of 20, and place an activator sprite inside the sector and give it the same lotag (this sector doesn't need to be seen, so you can place it away from the map) Due to array limitations at time of writing, only 1 lift can be used per level (you could set them all up to work with each other, effectively bypassing this limitation)
The bottom lift sprite can be modified to add sounds and change the speed of the lift. Change it's XVEL to modify the lift's speed - the default value is 512, the higher the faster. The sprite's YVEL is the sound that is played when the lift is activated, the ZVEL is the sound that plays when it stops, and the EXTRA is the sound that plays whilst the lift is in motion.
By changing the top lift sprite's XVEL, the lift can be moved to the side as well. Give the XVEL a positive number to move it to the bottom lift sprite's left (in relation to it's angle) and a negative to move it to the right. If the lift sprite is pointing down for example and you give it a positive number, it will move to the right - if it is pointing left than the lift will move North.
Day/Night - 3800Edit
This sprite modifies the map's sky and visibility depending on the time on the player's computer. Place this sprite, and it will change the sky texture throughout the map to 99 if it is evening, and to 95 if it is night. The maps' visibility in outside sectors will be set to 240 if it is day, and to 0 if it is evening or night.
Random Gunfire - 13214Edit
Will spawn one of the following random effects at random intervals; for the lasershot or bullet trail point it in the direction you wish it to fire. Can be used to create war ambience in the background of levels
|Spritepal 0||Blue lasershot|
|Spritepal 1||Bullet trail|
|Spritepal 2||Ground explosion|
Car Spawner - 1474Edit
This can be used to spawn moving cars in order to enhance the atmosphere of city levels. There are a number of parimeters you can give this sprite to finetune the effect you need. The Car Spawner's spritepal determines the speed that the cars are spawned at:
|Spritepal 0||Every 2 seconds|
|Spritepal 1||Every 1 second|
|Spritepal 2||Every half seconds|
|Spritepal 3||Every 3 seconds|
|Spritepal 4||Every 4 seconds|
|Spritepal 5||Every quarter seconds|
Random chance every 10 seconds
Next, the sprite's XVEL determines the size of the car spawned. A XVEL of 0 spawns them at a normal human size, an XVEL of 1 spawns them at half of that and an XVEL of 2 spawns them at a quarter of that size. The Sprite's Owner number determines the radius that the cars are spawned in - it defualts to a area roughly the size of 2 of build's largest grid size. 1024 is the same size as 1 of build's largest grids (Alternatively, give the Car spawner a lotag of 1 to spawn in a straight line. Finally, the hitag determines the movement type of the car. By default they move relatively fastly and emit an engine noise. Giving it a hitag of 1 will make the cars move fast; a hitag of 2 quite slow, and a hitag of 3 will make them move very slowly and randomly emit a horn noise (to simulate a traffic jam)
Car Waypoint - 1480Edit
This sprite will turn any moving sprites to it's direction; simply place it and point it what way you want the cars to turn. You can also make the cars change speed; a spritepal of 1 will make cars go fast, a spritepal of 2 slow, and a spritepal of 3 to move very slowly (and randomly emit a horn noise)
Activate if inventory item - 3347Edit
This sprite will activate it's lotag if the player steps close to it and has a certain item in their inventory.
|Spritepal 1||C4 Explosive|
|Spritepal 2||Gas Mask|
Helicopter Waypoint - 13251Edit
These waypoints control the movement of the Military HIND D copter (13244) and Blackhawk (13279) By default when the chopper reaches this point it'll turn in it's direction. To make the chopper move up, give this waypoint a hitag equal to the height you want it to muve up. To make it move down, give it a lotag equal to the height you wish it to move down. Try numbers like 256 or 512 first; the number determines how long the chopper moves in that direction for. To change it's speed, change the waypoint's YVEL - 0 is fast, 1 is slow and 2 will stop it - the duration it stops for is determined by the XVEL. Whilst it's stopped, the HIND D can spawn sprites determined by the ZVEL (It defaults to the Fascists, but it can spawn friendlies as well) It will spawn a sprite every 1 second, up to a maximum of 4 for the Hind and 10 for the Blackhawk (so for example setting it's XVEL to 130 will make the Hind chopper spawn all of it's cargo in one trip) Setting the waypoint's OWNER variable will 'refill' the Chopper's occupants to the number specified if it's empty. Finally, giving this sprite a palette of 4 will make the chopper ignore it if it's occupant load is empty.
Foliage Spawner - 5430Edit
Placing one of these on a texture will spawn foliage throughout the entire map on that specific texture.
