self-repairing wall
I played around a bit with the scripting system for Doom 3/Prey, here's a video of my work in progress...

Re: self-repairing wall
Very nice!!! I imagine some excellent maps could be made with this concept - eg. imagine a floor of these with the rocket launcher in the middle

Look forward to seeing what you do with it

wow..very good.. will you make the wall pieces to drop with physics? also correct the fact that a lone square can float in the air?

Re: self-repairing wall
Replacing destroyed cells by physics debris or similar is easy. Removing lone squares is a bit too complex for a scripting system without arrays (requires status flags and complex recursion). Things such as repair speed can all be set up: The wait can even be set to zero, meaning that you can not blast through such a wall at all, no matter how much force is used

When it's polished enough, I shall release it with a little tutorial (I made this thing easy to set up), so everyone can use it :P

Screw using that for a door, how about an arena that takes place over toxic fluids below that uses this for a floor? And have multiple platforms

Google video is weird... first it doesn't let me update the video description, and now it locked a file with the same name as the one I removed. Well, video 2 is up now!

ha... sweet. What happens if you're in the way? I'm assuming you can set it as "crushable" in the editor like a func_mover?

Hello!

Grate work on the mod, I watched the vids and it looks to be included in many maps in the future.

Keep it up and I hope to see more from you.

Re: self-repairing wall
Interitus: I'll have to find out whether I can set it to crush somehow, atm Tommy either gets stuck or is being pushed away.
Kinslayermds: The fps hit is minor. Only when using a bigger wall it's noticeable, and mainly because of the many polygons rendered.

My guess is that it would take more complicated math to change it to triangles or hexagons.

Re: self-repairing wall
Every cell is indexed and registered... that is quite doable for a triangle too. For the rest, it would simply take a bit longer :P

Re: self-repairing wall
In that case, how about a map that has platforms that randomly move about using the 'repair' technique?

Aha, so how do you 'use' this? You load it with a parameter? Does it have maps included? etc...

Re: self-repairing wall
Cool to try it out myself! The first time I loaded the example map it scared the shit out of me. Was just looking around and suddenly heard the metallic sounds behind me.... from the selfregenerating wall! Very cool.

Oh, for those who just want to sample this:
  • download the pk4 file from the link at the top of this thread
  • put it in your Prey\base folder
  • after loading Prey, get to the console (Ctrl-Alt-~ or just ~ if you set the allowconsole variable)
  • type map s_regeneratingwallexample
  • type give all after the map has loaded and have fun!
  • btw, type ~ to get rid of the console

Re: self-repairing wall
Just found this Thread while searching for some Prey Modifications and got pretty exited about this regenerating walls and all the stuff that can be done with them.
Could someone maybe awnser some (maybe stupid) questions i got about this stuff? Since iam not used to mapping or modding id engines and cant awnser myself.
- is it possible to create wall parts in any size or shape?
- is it possible to create wall parts with any texture i wish to use, or transparent?
- is it possible to let wall parts explode/create some trash parts or whatever when they get destroyed?
- is it possible to make 3 dimensional, regenerating structures instead of 2 dimensional walls?
- well and the last but for me most important question, is it possible to create such walls in other editors/engines too?
