View Full Version : opening a hatch

I'd like to make lids to my beer vats. This is easy, however, i'd like to have them open, much like a hatch opens. How do I go about this?

could try func_rotate, or use brush manipulation commands in an icarus script

It has to be scripting. I've tried func_rotating as a solution to something I wanted to swing. The problem is that when you stop the rotation the object "snaps" back to its original position. Gotta use scripting.

There are doors in SP that rotate, are their keys for them that work in MP also? or is all done by script?

I do not believe it is possible to do a swinging door without scripting. The script doesn't need to be very complicated, though. You could perhaps do a revolving door with a func_rotating (don't use the default speed of 100, though!).

The MP source code is available, so if you're heavy into C and want to make a mod, I think you could do an MP mod with swinging doors, but I'm not sure. Anyone?
