Problems with elevator


Obsttorte

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I've tried to create a custom elevator for my current WIP. However, while the elevator is behaving normal, it has a very weird bug.

 

If I'm on the upper floor and move downwards on it, my view starts shaking, and if I'm on the lower floor and tell the elevator to move upwards, I just fell through it.

 

Never seen this behaviour before, and tried some fixes, like a clip textured fs_brush below the elevator, bound to it. Nothing worked so far.

Bloody, fixed it.

 

The problem was that I used the upper part of the elevator as actuall mover_elevator entity, and bound the lower rest where the player stands on to it. Now I use the platform where the player stands on as mover_elevator entity, and it works as suppossed.

 

Yippie.

This is a typical behaviour you get due to the way doom 3 physics work. I used a whole lot of models for the elevator, so it is not one entity, but several ones all bound to the actual mover. I guess the problem was caused by the way entities that are bound to others are moved if the entety they are bind to is moved. So if the elevator is not the platform the player or an ai is standing on while moving, it may not notice that someone stands on it and has to be moved, too. Just a guess, though.

      Took a break from TDM until I got my backlog under control. It's been months and it's still not "under control". Damnit.

      I sleep well at night knowing the player will never see the absolute nightmare that is my sealing brushwork outside the playable area. Only the pointfile can judge me now.

      Somehow I admire the fact that the material from Dune has now been filmed for the third time. Personally, I could never do much with the material, but as a child of the 80s, I of course know the David Lynch movie...and that movie was at least funny!
