Moving Trigger Zones?

Recommended Posts

Hi

Im trying to make a "spell" which casts 3 explosions consecutively in a straight line and plan on using a trigger zone where when a unit touches the zone they take damage.  However I cannot "move" game logics. Anyone known an alternate solution?

I made a custom trigger zones that can be moved but I think they are very recourse intensive on the computer, how are you casting the spells ?

Just using a simple drop item listen.

 

Edit: Just did some brainstorming...

I'm guessing the only way is to create a "large" zone and add every damn entity to it, and then "IF" distance between each entity and the spell less than "X", they take damage. I agree that it would be very recourse intensive....

I made a similar system for the missile tank with the old logic.

I made a zone of activation throughout the area, I'm doing some tests of how it could be done, with a single zone of activation that recognizes the type of object.

a small example

the logic of the right the important thing is the rotation the rest is merely visual

it occurs to me that if, for example, it detects the color, it could apply different spells depending on the color of the object it throws.^_^

You would have to add all the players to an array and all the spells to another array and then check the distance between the spells and players in a time trigger iv done this before so if you want help let me know

I mean yeah, I could do that. But it's only useful in pure pvp games. What if I want it to damage everything such as terrain, mobs, plants, etc?

I've got a somewhat working missile system now. However I can't seem to make the system trigger upon firing which kinda sucks.

@Igor Quintero That spell is very powerful, xD, I want to see if someone is able to escape from that.

If the same thing happened to me yesterday when I was testing, I did not detect the projectiles either

@Spyler.X

I could turn it into a real heat seeker without the 100% auto target if only the listen event for firing a weapon worked :(

often when detecting players dropping an item i despawn the item and give them a new one. it makes it nice and clean:P

You'd kinda want a heat seeking missle to work in 3D...
