i think both is a good idea, as to locking maps. the purpose of this would be to make it so you can't just go to a certain map wen ever you want, the creator could set a password or something that would have to be put in, maybe after the travelpoint text, so they could actually use that travel point. for example, if i don't want someone to just go to my map that i have planned for later, i could go to that file and type something like:
and then in a later map, to get to it, i would type in the map file:
travelpoint 0 0 0 0 0 0 mapname abcdefghijasdasdasdasdasdasdsadadasasas
just my ideas.
as for moving teleporters, sound sources, and maybe even moving hazards? witch you could just take the moving sources from 2dp, so they can be made hazards, witch ever, i like those ideas, but i think those would be hard to code? not sure.
keys, or objects neededd to activate doors/travelpoints. or even, probably a lot later, to deactivate things, like force fields? i'm getting really into this game just thinking about things like that.
tracking, i think you should be able to set a trackme flag on zones, for example
zone 0 100 0 100 0 100 lol:trackme
i have to use a colon to tell that it's trackme, or the game might say trackme in the zone text. this brings up another point:
switch the map rawdata type, to colons between stuff, if you haven't seen it like that, i can give you an example map with everything there in colon rawdata text.
positional events, witch i believe was number 9 in that post, can't remember witch one right now and i can't go check.
the way these could work is, you set a coord range where they step into, and this sound or event happens, this is where custom sounds could come into play the most. it could then trigger something, like, spawn platform, spawn object, change health, unspawn something, etc etc.
i think i'll stop here, cause my fingers hurt, this is the longest post i've typed on this forum ever, or the longest i've typed without stopping probably in my life, and my fingers and wrists aren't used to it,
o btw, quick question, is it bad that i lean my wrists on my desk and edge of my laptop while typing?
but anyway, bye everyone
i'm currently in the process of learning how to code, if you would like to contact me, skype is preffered, use one of the following:
