Wall attributes.

Designed a level that creates new, exciting, and challenging Armagetron game play? Or maybe just something funky. Put it right here.

Wall attributes.

Post by QUARG »

Would there be an easy way to apply wall attributes such as speed or rubber depletion to specific walls in the xml?

i.e. <Wall height="6" speed="30">
or
<Wall height="6" death="1">
or
<Wall height="6" teleport="x="100 y="200"> etc...

Well if there is going to be walls v2, then can we get multiple texture support and an alpha channel too? I guess I have to wait for 0.5 ...I'll be patient.

Oh, and someone implement depth sorting, depth peeling, ray tracing, or such. :)

Yeah. The exception being the teleportation stuff which we've seen roughly implemented in flower power sumo. IIRC teleportation is/was a planned feature.

Ideally i'ld like to see some posts complaining for more zone rendering options ie link1link2link3. That way you'd just add an alpha'd rectangle zone with w/e settings around walls. Developers responses requested to zone rendering options.

ps tank if i'm linking to multiple forum posts is there a way to avoid repeating (forums.armagetronad.net)?

Yeah, that's (almost) what I did for link 2. Apparently tinyurl limits the length of data: URIs, though…

Link 3 used to be the domain of a well-known three-letter US government organisation.

Which I considered to be highly inappropriate.

Maybe I should apologize to QUARG for hijacking his thread :-)

Please just ignore the last 6 posts (including this one)…
