Post Posted: Wed Jun 08, 2005 7:19 pm    Post subject: Lesson Two
 
Since there were no questions about Lesson One, I'm moving into Lesson Two. It is shorter. We will be making the Railgun. It has two images.

In base, you need to:
add the weapon to the armors you want to carry it (armordata.cs)
in Item.cs:
define ammo ($WeaponAmmo)
add the weapon to weapon rotation
Code:
$NextWeapon[Chaingun] = DiscLauncher; $NextWeapon[DiscLauncher] = GrenadeLauncher; $PrevWeapon[DiscLauncher] = Chaingun; $PrevWeapon[GrenadeLauncher] = DiscLauncher;

define itemimagedata and itemdata
define projectiles in baseprojdata and explosion tag in baseexpdata.
you can create a new sound in nsound.cs if you like..
in station.cs:
add to stations so you can buy
Code:
$InvList[Disclauncher] = 1; $RemoteInvList[Disclauncher] = 1

add ammo to resupply from stations
Code:
%cnt = %cnt + AmmoStation::resupply(%player,DiscLauncher,DiscAmmo,2)


Weapon rotation can be a real pain. If you lock up while switching weapons forwards or back, check there.



Double weapons are fairly simple, heres a simplified version based on Annihilations Railgun.

First create a second weapon image to use:

Code:
ItemImageData Railgun2Image
{
shapeFile = "shotgun";
mountPoint = 0;
mountOffset = { 0, -0.2, 0 };
mountRotation = { 0.005, 0, 0 };
weaponType = 0;
projectileType = RailRound;
accuFire = true;
};

ItemData Railgun2
{
description = "Railgun";
shapeFile = "shotgun";
className = "Weapon";
heading = $InvHead[ihWea];
shadowDetailMask = 4;
imageType = Railgun2Image;
showWeaponBar = true;
showInventory = false;
price = 0;
};


Then include some code to mount and remove it when the parent weapon is mounted:

Code:
function Railgun::onMount(%player,%item)
{
Player::mountItem(%player,Railgun2,4);
}


function Railgun::onUnmount(%player,%item)
{
Player::unmountItem(%player,4);
}

Anyway, you're probably wondering what everything is and does. Here's a breakdown.

Code:
$AutoUse[Blaster] = True;                       //Will be automatically put on
$SellAmmo[BulletAmmo] = 25;                     //How much ammo to remove when dropping or selling it
$WeaponAmmo[Blaster] = "";                      //Name of ammo for that weapon, the blaster doesn't use ammo

$NextWeapon[EnergyRifle] = Blaster;             // <-- Blaster's weapon cycle
$NextWeapon[Blaster] = PlasmaGun;               // <-- Blaster's weapon cycle
$NextWeapon[PlasmaGun] = Chaingun;
$NextWeapon[Chaingun] = DiscLauncher;
$NextWeapon[DiscLauncher] = GrenadeLauncher;
$NextWeapon[GrenadeLauncher] = Mortar;
$NextWeapon[Mortar] = LaserRifle;
$NextWeapon[LaserRifle] = EnergyRifle;

$PrevWeapon[Blaster] = EnergyRifle;             // <-- Blaster's weapon cycle
$PrevWeapon[PlasmaGun] = Blaster;               // <-- Blaster's weapon cycle
$PrevWeapon[Chaingun] = PlasmaGun;
$PrevWeapon[DiscLauncher] = Chaingun;
$PrevWeapon[GrenadeLauncher] = DiscLauncher;
$PrevWeapon[Mortar] = GrenadeLauncher;
$PrevWeapon[LaserRifle] = Mortar;
$PrevWeapon[EnergyRifle] = LaserRifle;

//That is the weapon cycle, when you add a new weapon, you need to put it in the cycle.

ItemImageData BlasterImage                         //Defines the image that will be used
{
    shapeFile  = "energygun";                      //Name of the image
   mountPoint = 0;                                //How it will be rotated

   weaponType = 0;                                // 0 Single Shot, 1 Continuous, 3 Disc
   reloadTime = 0;                                //Time it takes to reload
   fireTime = 0.3;                                //Time it takes to fire
   minEnergy = 5;                                 //Minimum energy needed to fire
   maxEnergy = 6;

   projectileType = BlasterBolt;                  //Name of projectile being fired
   accuFire = true;                               //Tells if AccuFire is used for this weapon

   sfxFire = SoundFireBlaster;                    //Name of sound on firing
   sfxActivate = SoundPickUpWeapon;               //Name of sound when it is picked up
};

ItemData Blaster                                   //Defines the Blaster
{
    heading = "bWeapons";                          //Name of the category it is put in
   description = "Blaster";                       //Description that will be in inventory
   className = "Weapon";                          //Type of item
    shapeFile  = "energygun";                      //Name of shape used
   hudIcon = "blaster";                           //Name of picture to show the ammo count, on the left
   shadowDetailMask = 4;                          //Amount of shadow
   imageType = BlasterImage;                      //Name of image defined for this weapon
   price = 85;                                    //Price of weapon
   showWeaponBar = true;                          //Do you want it on the weapon bar?
};


One more:

ItemData MortarAmmo                             //Defines the ammo
{
   description = "Mortar Ammo";               //Name that shows up in the inventory
   className = "Ammo";                        //What it is
    heading = "xAmmunition";                   //What category it goes in (inventory station)
   shapeFile = "mortarammo";                  //name of shape used for the ammo
   shadowDetailMask = 4;                      //Amount of shadow
   price = 5;                                              //Cost
};

ItemImageData MortarImage                   //Defines Image
{
   shapeFile = "mortargun";               //Shape used for the gun's picture
   mountPoint = 0;

   weaponType = 0; // Single Shot         //Single shot, continuous fire, disc?
   ammoType = MortarAmmo;                 //Type of ammo used
   projectileType = MortarShell;          //Name of projectile (DTS shape name)
   accuFire = false;                      //Will lob instead of shoot straight
   reloadTime = 0.5;
   fireTime = 2.0;

   lightType = 3;                         //Light generated by projectile
   lightRadius = 3;                       //Radius of that light
   lightTime = 1;                         //Time that the light lasts
   lightColor = { 0.6, 1, 1.0 };          //Colors used

   sfxFire = SoundFireMortar;
    sfxActivate = SoundPickUpWeapon;    //Sound when you switch to it
   sfxReload = SoundMortarReload;     //Sound used when it reloads
   sfxReady = SoundMortarIdle;        //Idle sound
};

ItemData Mortar                         //Defines the mortar
{
   description = "Mortar";
   className = "Weapon";
   shapeFile = "mortargun";
   hudIcon = "mortar";
    heading = "bWeapons";
   shadowDetailMask = 4;
   imageType = MortarImage;
    price = 375;
   showWeaponBar = true;
    validateShape = true;               //Does it need to be validated by the client?
};
