Code: Select allExpand view
216: Sector_SetGravity (tag, ipart, fpart)

tag: Tag of affected sector
ipart: Integral part of the gravity multiplier
fpart: Fractional part of the gravity multiplier

Sets the amount of gravity in a sector. The actual formula used is sv_gravity * (ipart + fracpart * 0.01). SV_Gravity is a cvar that defines "normal" gravity. So Sector_SetGravity (1, 0, 50) would set a sector to half normal gravity, Sector_SetGravity (1, 2, 0) would be double normal gravity, Sector_SetGravity (1, 1, 0) would be normal gravity, etc.

HAHAHA that was mad fun. Kinda like that doom2d thingy. Dunno how to use it, but you can use the thrustThingZ() with jump pads or something.

Someone (LWM?) made a 'cat jump' or something, which involved binding a key to puke a script that had ThrustThingZ in it - try that.

Not at home ATM, so can't check the syntax, but you can lower gravity (or raise it) using MAPINFO.

That's the physics. In either case, you would have to raise gravity to get the player down faster, after he made is jump.

Didn't read the bit about needing air control as well. Air control can also be set from MAPINFO. The best (only?) example I am aware of using this is Biff's DM Morpheus wannabe (inspired by the UT map of similar name).

As for making falling speed quicker, perhaps you can simply find a low gravity compromise setting that allows a greater jump, but still has you falling quite quickly. I'm stabbing in the dark though, because I can't test this mod 'til I get home, so I'm not really sure what's needed.

What does "Air Control" mean, or, what does it do, besides Gravity?

Air control gives you (tada) the ability to control yourself as you fly through the air. :)

The standard behaviour is pretty close (ish) to the real situation of not giving you much control in the air - limiting you to little more than turning round. If you increase the level of air control you have, you can modify the actual direction you are travelling whilst in mid air. The amount of control you have can be varied according to taste/ requirement of the map.

I think you can get Biff's file here:

http://www.valuetrail.com/rarefiles/dow ... ndex.shtml

Try it to get a feel for what air control is about. The map is intended for DM, but you'll see the low grav and air control in use even in SP. Little point in using Bots because they refuse to jump off the buildings due to the damaging floors around them (IIRC).

Hmm, I could use some air control (as Sonic can control his jump)...anyone know what the default value is?
