Spawnable items?

Postby Gregb1955 » Fri Sep 12, 2014 10:26 am

I would like to know if objects such as a trench or boxes or drums or even a sniper tree could be made spawnable using BC42.
I can place these objects above, using BC42, as a spawnable item, but they never show up in a game.
Ammoboxes, weapons, vehicles, medilockers and other objects can. I notice that they all have an interaction with the player in some way.
Is this what defines a spawnable object?
Thanks....

Those are called StaticObjects. When they are created they stay on the map forever and normally do not move.

PCO (Player Controlled Object) is typically a vehicle, but have been altered to make stuff such as bombs for bomb drops, spawning landmines, interactive buildings, destructible objects, etc.

As a server side mod this will never work. However if that's not the issue, then you need to create PlayerControlObjects versions of them and use object spawners to spawn them. That is, if you had the intent of having them spawn on demand mid game.

If they are normal objects that don't do anything, then placing them in BC42 should work. But don't use object spawners to place them. They should be placed the same way as other static objects if you are treating them as such.

Thanks, the key words...Player Controlled Objects.
I understand now
Thanks for clearing that up.

Actually, you can also add weapon kits to Object Spawners. That I forgot to add. For example:

ObjectSpawnsTemplates.con (in your map)
    ObjectTemplate.create ObjectSpawner spawnkit_ger_sg44zf4
    ObjectTemplate.setObjectTemplate 2 kit_ger_sg44zf4
    ObjectTemplate.setObjectTemplate 1 kit_ger_sg44zf4
    ObjectTemplate.MinSpawnDelay 1
    ObjectTemplate.MaxSpawnDelay 2
    ObjectTemplate.SpawnDelayAtStart 0
    ObjectTemplate.TimeToLive 30
    ObjectTemplate.Distance 10
    ObjectTemplate.DamageWhenLost 0

ObjectSpawns.con (in your map)
    Object.create spawnkit_ger_sg44zf4
    Object.absolutePosition 1487.6/77.3704/1798.63
    Object.rotation 110/0/0
    Object.setOSId 1

Does this mean I can attach kits to vehicles? Like supply trucks?

I'm not sure they will stay. In fact they might just go through a PCO and land on the ground. I think they only stay on an object if it is a StaticObject.

I´ve tried it on planes, the kits falls to the floor (or bottom of the sea in my case) if i used "holdobject" on the spawner it stays where it spawns but doesnt move with the plane :cry:

I guess the only solution is to make them drop with the fire button, making an array of kits around the truck's current position.
