Title: [Tutorial] Buyable powerups
Post by: shinged on October 15, 2016, 08:33:03 am
Hey guys, im here with a simple tutorial on how to add buyable powerups. This is what the end result should look like


 So lets start with the script, open up your mapname.gsc located in root/usermaps/mapname/scritps/zm/mapname.gsc
Make sure you dont open the CSC

 Now somewhere at the top of the gsc, add this
#using scripts\zm\_zm_score;

 At the bottom of the main function, add this
thread buyable_powerup();

 Now at the bottom of your gsc paste this
function buyable_powerup()
{
level.buyable_powerup_cost = 100; // Cost for powerup
level.buyable_powerup_cooldown = 20; // Cooldown in seconds for buyable trigger
while(1)
{
while(1)
{
buyable_powerup_trig = GetEnt("buyable_powerup_trig", "targetname");
buyable_powerup_trig SetHintString("Press and hold &&1 to spawn Powerup [Cost: " + level.buyable_powerup_cost + "]");
buyable_powerup_trig SetCursorHint("HINT_NOICON");
buyable_powerup_spawn = struct::get( "powerup_spawn", "targetname" );
buyable_powerup_trig waittill("trigger", player);

if(player.score >= level.buyable_powerup_cost)
{
player zm_score::minus_to_player_score(level.buyable_powerup_cost);

break;
}
}

/*
If you want a specific powerup, then uncomment the buyable_powerup_spawn below and delete or comment out the one above it.
Available Powerups: double_points, free_perk, full_ammo, nuke, fire_sale, carpenter, insta_kill, shield_charge, bonfire_sale,
*/

buyable_powerup_spawn thread zm_powerups::special_powerup_drop(buyable_powerup_spawn.origin);
//buyable_powerup_spawn thread zm_powerups::specific_powerup_drop("full_ammo", buyable_powerup_spawn.origin);

buyable_powerup_trig SetHintString("Recharing...");

wait(level.buyable_powerup_cooldown);
}
}


 Now for the radiant part, all you need is two things, the trigger to buy the powerup and the script_struct for where the powerup will spawn.
Make a trigger_use with this kvp
"buyable_powerup_trig", "targetname"
Make a script_struct with this kvp
"powerup_spawn", "targetname"

You might have given the trigger the wrong kvp, or maybe you scripted something wrong

bonfire_sale is not working. I can hear the powerup sound, but bonfire sale is not showing up.

Im trying to find the mapname.gsc in usermaps. But I can't find it there, the only place where I find mapname.gsc is in the mods map. Does it still work then?

This error is caused by not having matching KVPs in radiant and in the scripts. Check you copied the script correctly.

I know this is an old post but hoping someone will respond.

Is there a way to put a delay before the actual powerup spawns at the location? I want a delay to activate a sound then have it appear. This is what I have been trying but isnt working.

level.buyable_powerup_cost = 2500; // Cost for powerup
level.buyable_powerup_delay = 10; //Delay before the powerup appears in seconds
level.buyable_powerup_cooldown = 10; // Cooldown in seconds for buyable trigger in seconds

Line 2 is the line I put in for the delay.

Any help is appreciated

Thanks

EDIT:
I figured it out. Dont know how to delete :P
