Can you place multiple objects at the same time/one click?

Postby trainman61 » Sun Sep 06, 2020 4:11 am

Hi, I am just starting to use the editor on Steam, and I was wondering if there is a way to place one type of tile across a large area? I want to make the whole map have the floor be a big hole, and then have some platforms, but I don't want to have to do each tile manually. Like can I mass select the whole map and change all of it at once?

You can set the default floor for a map area at once. This can be changed at any time.
But otherwise, no, every item must be placed individually.

When I go to the set default floor, it is only a list of the floor textures, but won't let me use the other floor options, like hole. Is there a way to do that that I am not seeing?

No, it's only for the base floor texture. As said every other object must be placed one by one.

I have another question - am I able to have something happen after a monster dies without being able to talk to them? I want the player to teleport after killing a monster, but when I click on the monster, the player talks to it instead of attacking (but attacks when clicking the attack button). I don’t want the creature to be able to say anything, like opening the chat box.

You must use the "evtdie()" event.

Code: Select all
if (evtdie()) {
  ...
}


(This is described in the tutorial/manuals. ;))

I thought I had that, although now I am not getting the text, but when I have this code in the monster's script, it stops me from being able to actually attack it. It's aggressive, but I can't damage it. When I delete the script, I can attack it again.

This is the script

if (evtdie())
{
player.move("KHTQ_D3");
}



EDIT: I never had the default() at the end, which is in the tutorial, but you didn't post that here. Sorry for the constant questions. I am spending a lot of time learning this editor, and I don't really understand coding language, so I am constantly forgetting things I read.

No worries, I just don't really have the time. I try and help but mostly hope other forum users answer the questions. :)
