Area Transitions

Hello everyone, today I've come to ask how exactly to create area transitions that are seen everywhere in game, just one example being the Lower City elevator on Taris. I believe it's controlled by the TransitionToDestin field within a door's entry in the GIT file, but I've also heard that it's caused by triggers. Could someone clarify on how I would set up an area transition?


The truly fallen cannot return to the light. If someone "falls" and "returns," they never really, truly fell.

You can do either way. I always use triggers that correspond with a waypoint in the destination module. With this method you get that nice overhead sign as you are walking letting you know where you are going.

See this tutorial. http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?t=145870

For the triggers you need to edit the .git file to create the trigger area. You also need to create a .utt file, trigger, to correspond with .git entry.

Waypoints are nicer. All you need is to enter the waypoint info into the .git. I've found that an actual .utw file is not necessary.

Hope that will get you started...let us know if you need more help.

So what would you put in the on enter field of the UTT file? Would it be a script that just warps you to a new area and that custom waypoint?

You don't have to enter anything in the script fields for a transition trigger utt file. Make sure that the type field shows..Transition..rather than Generic or Hostile...the connection is made in the .git file.
