ive recently downloaded the camera model, when i shoot it it just dissapears, i want to make it so it would replace itself with a dead version of the camera once it had been destroyed.

brief summary-
*SHOOTS CAMERA
*CAMERA DIES
*CAMERA REPLACED BY DIFFERENT CAMERA (DEAD)

anyone know how?

Ask bond if you can edit his model or if he could model a broken version of the camera and change the destory script to spawn a born camera in its location (remember to call the destory command to get rid of the now broken camera)

you cant replace models, but you can replce he texture and stop the animation.

You can use a second texture that makes the camera look damaged when "destroyed".

For that you just have to add this script as a "destroy" script:

desc = Leave damaged entity (texture changed)

;Triggers

:state=0:alttexture=1,state=1
:state=1:state=2,suspend,coloff

;End of Script

Important:
If you add a entity with a alternative texture then both textures have to be in the texturebank folder. If the textures are in a other folder they will not show up ingame.


The other possibility is to use a second (damaged) model which is hidden until the camera gets destroyed:

You can hide the damaged entity with that Start script:

desc = Make Item Appear Invisible waiting for Activation

;Triggers

:state=0:setalphafade=0,coloff,state=1
:state=1,activated=1:setalphafade=100,runfpidefault=1

;End of Script

The camera needs a new Destroy script.
This is already in your scriptbank/destroy folder. It's the "destroyandactivate" script.

At last you have to type the name of the damaged camera in the IF USED field of the camera.

Hope that helps.

Thanks ctm, I've been meaning to try something like this but never got around to it. Now you've made it very easy for me!

A little addition:

In my last post i said that if you add a entity with a alternative texture then both textures would have to be in the texturebank folder else they wouldnt show up ingame.

That's wrong!

Correct is that you have to type the exact path for textures in the FPE file.

Example:
The model and the textures are in the entitybank/user folder.

If you type it like this in the fpe the textures will only show up in the editor but not ingame:

textured = texName01.tga
texturealtd = texName02.tga

This way it is correct:

textured = entitybank\user\texName01.tga
texturealtd = entitybank\user\texName02.tga

Couldn't you do better, and make a model animation of a broken camera?

Also not a bad idea. Not quite sure what you mean by animation of a broken camera... But having an animation of the model falling to the floor, for example, then displaying an alt texture, could be effective, and doable.

I ment that it should be possible to insert a few bones so you can bend it up.

Sure, that's another possibility, but that would require completely re-rigging and redoing the animation. Right now the only bones are in the wire coil section.

Maybe sometime I'll try the falling to the floor idea. That won't require any extra work except adding a few keyframes. I could even make it bounce and slide a little for added realism as it hits the floor.

hehe, yeah...

there's no command for that, is there? I see several undocumented commands from looking through the fpi's that ship with FPSC, but nothing about turning on physics on the fly...would be nice though.
