How to script Duke3D type explosions?

Fri Oct 29, 2021 8:14 pm

Looking to replicate Duke3D destructible environment explosions along with screen shake, It probably has something to do with replicating the Icon of Sin death explosions, but there's almost nothing written on this on the net.

Something like that

You need to use ACS.

Screen shake: Use Radius_Quake or Radius_Quake2.

Explosions: Place map spots where you want, then spawn an explosion.

Change the environment: I use them in most cases.

I think most people (including me) use those features - but there is actually a built-in destructible geometry feature that I don't think has had much love from mappers yet:

The examples in both of those threads work in 4.7.1

Lask, first of all, thank you for the help, second of all, while looking at the results on screen, it might be better for what i had in mind, i kinda wanted the explosion to happening randomly across an area instead of all at once, like the icon of sin.

think I'm about halfway there to finishing my script, thanks again. <3

That's neat and i may use that in the future, but i want to use a specific explosive sequence to open a door, not just any
Think of the cannon sequence in RE4.......because im literally just copying it XD
