Need DECORATE Help

Post by Herculine » Tue May 10, 2011 1:07

I'm working on a randomizer mod that will add many monsters and items from the Realm667 Beastiary and so far it's been going extremely well with the general monsters, however...

...I want to replace the Tall Techno Floor Lamp with a Tesla Coil monster, but I can't find out what to call the Floor Lamps in my DECORATE lump to get this to work.

I looked through several different topics about actors and such in the ZDoom wiki but could not find the ID for this one item.

Does anyone know what it's called, or better still, can someone please direct me to a complete list of the IDs for things?

THANX

Are you referring to the TechLamp2?

Incidentally, you don't necessarily have to "replace" an existing DooM actor (i.e., replace TechLamp2 with Tesla Coil Monster). You can simply create a new actor with the appropriate properties and states.

Here is a link to all the classes for DooM actors.

Thanks for the help and the link to the list; that's exactly what I needed.

I'm creating the new actor because I don't want to totally replace the TechLamps; rather I'm creating a randomizer that will only occasionally drop the Tesla Coil in their places for unpredictability. This should work perfectly now. THANX!

Yeah, I've always found creating a new actor to make more sense. This mod sounds interesting... the coil thing you describe reminds me of RPGs that have treasure chest monsters. lol

LOL... I had forgotten about those man-eating treasure chests!

Yes, the point of what I'm doing is to try to provide unpredictability, even for those old IWADs we've all got memorized.
