Nice stuff. I literally hate putting things away 1 unit on the grid :omfg: Most of the time I mess up everything
Anyway I was wondering if you knew how to make an elevator (or mover, whatever) that has like, multiple components.

I managed to make an elevator with chains, and make them go up or down together with the elevator (easy; although be careful what's on the other side because the chains might appear on another floor lol).
BUT... what if there's another component? Like a pulley, that is COMPLETELY DETACHED from the actual mover and does a different movement altogether. I'll draw something to show

The thing should spin on itself as long as the elevator is going up; and of course will spin in the other direction when the elev goes down

To be honest im not sure if it's possible, i don't think i'll ever see it in a map (maybe in bunnytrack or something)

A mesh could do this... maybe.

Im not sure if it is possible with only one 'rope roll'. ( read: mechanisms ) Fun thing to investigate. :rock:


But I do know it is possible with two rope rolls. Like this:

Make them separated movers and on-trigger movement. One for up and the other for down.

By playing game more time than time spent in Editor you might find maps like MH-LandOfEternalSunset having some mover with chains closer to this. Of course some stuff there is not the best ever for admins and doesn't include Bot support but... It looks well enough... (I have a "place-holder" until a clean release will be coming up).

Does anybody have a download link for this? I've only found a compressed version, but I'd like to have the complete archive.

never played monsterhunt, also i know there is a deathmatch map (i think by david) that had a similar elevator to what i drew.
i don't even know what the rest of your post mean? why bot support, it's just a decorative element to make the elevator look better? maybe you meant in the mh map?
i'm downloading that later :thuup:

this is definetly possible

make that spinning thing as a second Mover and give it a rotation movement with the Key positions ( the higher the elevator goes the more you should let it rotate)
give it the same MoveTime and StayOpenTime as the elevator and make it TriggerOpenTimed
give it a Tag: spinningmovertag

then in the elevator Mover Properties under Mover look for BumpEvent: spinningmovertag

so when you touch the elevator the spinning mover will start moving at the same time
the spinning mover will spin back and forth just like the elevator goes up and down

and if you also want the spinnng mover to go up and down together with the elevator then you should attach the spinning mover to the elevator mover by making the elevator an AttachMover and give it AttachTag: spinningmovertag

I goto the "unrealed.ini" and make it so nothing is docked, and only the mesh browser is "active"
All my actives are set to 0, accept the first one. all no docking

Seems to stop crashing a lot. In UT2004 same thing, but you must have the mesh browser to active.
