[ZScript] Get carrying sector velocity

Postby dodopod » Tue Jan 15, 2019 2:13 pm

Is there any way, in ZScript, to get the velocity at which an actor is being moved by a carrying sector? For example, suppose the player is on a conveyor belt, and I want to know how fast the player can run in a given direction.

No, not really. Player movement works by acceleration so the carry scrollers do a lot of fudging to make the player reach the same movement speed as the scrolling texture.

A lot of times I'll just get the actor's position one moment and its position a tick (or more) later, since that way it'll cover conveyors and platforms and at least some monster chase movement.
