i've been trying to make a mutator that would reduce the skaarjplayer's collisionheight and collisionradius to the standard human size.
i've asked some ppl to help out, but in the end we always got stuck on something. Pravin helped me a lot (thanks man!!) but we still didnt quite get there
what i tried in the beginning:
the mutator would simply reduce the height of any skaarjplayer. this only worked offline. online it didnt work for some reason..
then i tried:
making an item that would change the player's collisionheight/size if he was a skaarjplayer. if the player would pick up the item it would work, both offline and online. however, as a mutator, i had to get the item to the player. so the mutator spawned the item, and put it on the player's location. the player received the item, but it still fukked up for some reason. the client doesnt pick up the new collisionheight/radius.
i've been at it for quite a few days now, and i still cant figure out how to fix this issue.
this mutator is important because i need it for my RTNP release v1.1 because it turns out that about half the maps aren't playable as skaarjplayer, and its relatively impossible to edit them all so the skaarjplayer can play them too. so shrinking the player to regular human size is my own possible solution.
if any of u could do this i would GREATLY appreciate it!!
this is what i have so far:
Hey, I don't have access to the files yet (different PC).. I'll be able to have a look probably sometime on Monday.
From what I remember, I just created an item that modified the PlayerPawn's CollisionWidth and CollisionHeight--so quite simple, and not really much of a 'Mutator'. It might have done a few things more, I'll have a look on Monday.
Is there a version of this mutator that works with 227j? I tried it also and it doesn't work with 227j. It loads it but doesn't give the Skaarj an inventory item. I tried looking at the source but I don't fully understand it. I tried changing CollisionHeight and CollisionRadius with the JCoopZ AutoRunCommand but that looks to only run once at map start, it would need to be run after the player joins I think.
Or is there anyone who knows how to code a basic mutator that changes the two default properties for SkaarjPlayer:
When playing on THS-RTNP maps, the SkaarjPlayer can't get to certain places because it won't fit.
I found something called bSupportsRealCrouching...
Not fully sure if that's the answer but it does appear to reduce the CollisionHeight and I can crouch into spots not normally able to be gotten to. This will allow anyone that happens to use the Skaarj (or Nali) skins to get past any tight spots in RTNP maps.
