How do you do certain area events?

Postby DerpMcSkerp20 » Sat Jul 04, 2015 3:10 pm

Basically, I describe a "certain area event' as an event that is activated in a certain area: Example: Entrance to a castle, to make the drawbridge close.
I saw an example of this on a level on the forums, and I want to use that in the level I'm making for CC11.
So yea, how do you make certain area events.

Most people do this with invisible axes. The axes are placed where you want the event to activate and activate the event once they're collected. Then the axe graphic is made invisible. Axes are the most usefull for this since they don't make a sound when collected and don't give the player points. That way, events can be activated without the player seeing what activated the event.

It also helps if you make an npc-code for the axe and put nogravity=1, that way you can place axes in any place without them falling down.
