Teleporter

Description

When the player walks into a teleporter, he is transferred to a different location. The main difference to the object-type exit is the possibility to have teleporters connected to levers/buttons/etc. Sometimes teleporters are activated even against the players will.

Unlike exits, teleporters can also transfer items and monsters to different locations on the same map.

Type defined by:

Attributes

Attribute Field Description
activation speed obj::speed

If the <activation speed> is nonzero, the teleporter will automatically be activated in regular time-intervals. Hence, the player can just step on it and gets teleported sooner or later. The duration between two activates depends on the given value. Default in the teleporter arch is <activation speed> 0.1.

VERY IMPORTANT: If you want to have your teleporter activated via button/handle/magic_ear/etc, you must set <activation speed> to zero!

artifact obj::artifact If defined, refers to an artifact to get values from.
block view FLAG_BLOCKSVIEW If an item is set to block view, players (and monsters) cannot see beyond it unless they cross it or manage to stand on top.
changing FLAG_CHANGING A <changing> object converts to <food> <other_arch> objects; when it's animation is done. For non-living objects <food> is checked: if it is zero, the change happens; otherwise <food> is decreased by one. I suggest you don't mess with this value - leave the default in place.
connection connection value If a connection value is set, the teleporter will be activated whenever the connection is triggered. To use this properly, <activation speed> must be zero.
destination X liv::hp

The exit destinations define the (x, y)-coordinates where the exit leads to.

If both are set to zero and <exit path> is empty, the player will get teleported to another, randomly chosen teleporter on the same map (Slightly confusing for the player though). Make sure there actually is a second one in that case.

If both are set to zero and <exit path> is set, the player will be transferred to the "default enter location" of the destined map. The latter can be set in the map-properties as "Enter X/Y". Though, please DO NOT use that. It turned out to be a source for numerous map-bugs.

destination Y liv::sp

The exit destinations define the (x, y)-coordinates where the exit leads to.

If both are set to zero and <exit path> is empty, the player will get teleported to another, randomly chosen teleporter on the same map (Slightly confusing for the player though). Make sure there actually is a second one in that case.

If both are set to zero and <exit path> is set, the player will be transferred to the "default enter location" of the destined map. The latter can be set in the map-properties as "Enter X/Y". Though, please DO NOT use that. It turned out to be a source for numerous map-bugs.

elevation elevation The elevation (height above sea level) of this square. It is used for weather calculations and should be in the range -32000..32000. The elevation of a tile must be set in the bottom-most game object; elevation values for non-bottom-most game objects are ignored by the Crossfire server.
exit path obj::slaying

The exit path specifies the map that the player is transferred to. <exit path> can be an absolute path, beginning with '/' (for example "/peterm/FireTemple/fire1"). It can also be a relative path, not beginning with '/' (On the map "/peterm/FireTemple/Fire2" for example I could use the relative path "Fire1"). Use relative paths whenever possible! Note that upper/lower case must always be set correctly. However, please use lower case only.

If the <exit path> is set, ONLY players can get teleported. If the <exit path> is unset (empty), anything can get teleported: Players, monsters and items. In this case, the destined map is automatically the same map the teleporter is on.

glow radius obj::glow_radius If <glow radius> is set to a value greater zero, the object appears lit up on dark maps. <glow radius> can be a value between 0 and 4, the higher, the more light does the object emit.
identified FLAG_IDENTIFIED If an item is identified, the player has full knowledge about it.
identified animation identified_animation If defined, then the object will take this animation when identified.
identified animation speed identified_anim_speed If defined, then the object will have this animation speed when identified.
identified image identified_face If defined, then the object will take this appareance when identified.
identified random animation? identified_anim_random If defined, then the object's animation is in a random sequence when identified.
identified_name identified_name If defined, then the object will take this name when identified.
identified_name_pl identified_name_pl If defined, then the object will take this plural name when identified.
image obj::face The image-name defines what image is displayed for this object in-game.
invisible obj::invisible Generally makes the object invisible. Depending on the object-type, some can be made visible by the show_invisible spell. If in doubt, test it. Putting an invisible object under the floor always prevents it from being shown.
material obj::material This bitmask-value informs the player of which material(s) the object consists. Material does also affect how likely the object can be destroyed by hazardous spell-effects.
name obj::name This is the name of the object, displayed to the player.
non-pickable FLAG_NO_PICK If set, the object cannot be picked up (Neither by players nor monsters).
number obj::nrof This value determines the number of objects in one stack (for example: 100 gold coins => "number = 100"). You should set this at least to one, for any pickable object - otherwise it won't be mergeable into a stack.
plural name obj::name_pl This is the plural name of the object. A plural name must be set for all items that can be picked up and collected by the player.
price adjustment price_adjustment If set, this is the buy and sell price adjustment ratio for the item.
price adjustment for buying price_adjustment_buy If set, this is the adjustment ratio when buying the item. Ignored if <price> adjustment is set.
price adjustment for selling price_adjustment_sell If set, this is the adjustment ratio when selling the item. Ignored if <price> adjustment is set.
smooth level obj::smoothlevel If <smooth level> is set to a value greater zero, the object will be drawn partially over adjacent squares having a lower <smooth level> value. The value must be between 0 and 255 (inclusive); 0 means "never overlap adjacent squares".
splitting FLAG_SPLITTING A <splitting> object converts to <food> <other_arch> objects; when it is hit physically. For non-living objects <food> is checked: if it is zero, the change happens; otherwise <food> is decreased by one. I suggest you don't mess with this value - leave the default in place.
title obj::title This is the object's title. Once an object is identified the title is attached to the name. Typical titles are "of Mostrai", "of xray vision" etc.
unpaid FLAG_UNPAID An <unpaid> item cannot be used unless a player carried it over a shop mat, paying the demanded price. Setting this flag makes sense only for pickable items inside shops.
value obj::value Adds a certain value to the object: It will be worth that many times the default value from it's archetype (E.g. "value = 3" means three times worth the default value). Value for buying/selling will be further modified by various factors. Hence, testing values in-game is usually inevitable.
weight obj::weight This value defines the object's weight in grams (1000g is 1kg). Objects with zero weight are not pickable for players. Still, set the "non-pickable"-flag for explicitly non-pickable objects (hey, this is open source.. you never know ;) ).
