I know I'd like custon states.

Like, I have a monster:

Code: Select all

Missile:
 MAG1 E 7 A_FaceTarget
 MAG1 E 1 A_Jump (64,4)
 MAG1 E 1 A_Jump (85,4)
 MAG1 E 1 A_Jump (128,4)
 MAG1 F 1 A_CustomMissile ("RayOfFrost", 28, 0, 0)
 Goto See
 MAG1 F 1 A_CustomMissile ("AcidSplash", 28, 0, 0)
 Goto See
 MAG1 F 8 A_CustomMissile ("BurningHands", 28, 0, 0)
 Goto See
 MAG1 F 8 A_CustomMissile ("MagicM", 28, 0, -45)
 Goto See
It would be a lot more readable like this:

Code: Select all

Missile:
 MAG1 E 7 A_FaceTarget
 MAG1 E 1 A_JumpState (64,Acidsplash)
 MAG1 E 1 A_JumpState (85,Burninghands)
 MAG1 E 1 A_JumpState (128,MagicMissile)
 MAG1 F 1 A_CustomMissile ("RayOfFrost", 28, 0, 0)
 Goto See
Acidsplash:
 MAG1 F 1 A_CustomMissile ("AcidSplash", 28, 0, 0)
 Goto See
Burninghands:
 MAG1 F 8 A_CustomMissile ("BurningHands", 28, 0, 0)
 Goto See
MagicMissile:
 MAG1 F 8 A_CustomMissile ("MagicM", 28, 0, -45)
 Goto See


That way, a monster with tons of attacks (I once had a monster with ten attacks; it was a real pain to put in the jumps) could be broken down into manegeble chunks.

Also, custom death states could be useful. Like, a projectile could have

Code: Select all

DEATHTYPE "AcidDeath"
on it. When the decorate code reader thingy sees this on a projectile that kills something, it looks for a state called AcidDeath on the dying actor. If It doesn't see it, it just goes to the normal death sequence.

If these "Custom states" things work, it would be cool. If not, please tell me and then forget I asked.

Great at last.

How many time I should find out that one of my old requests has been finally implemented and I did not know about it. :?
