UT2004 :: Actor >> Mover >> Touring (Package: custom)

This mover is designed to simulate some sort of transporter for pawns or vehicles.

It's designed to move the same way as a mover in 'loop' state with an added 'unloading' stop. Like a mover in loop state, it moves from key 0, through all its keys, then from the last key straight to key 0 again. The key that is designated as unloading stop marks the far end of the mover's journey, its fully open state.

The Mover is in 'Touring' state by default and starts at keyframe 0.

The Mover goes through all the keyframes (first-last) and then finally before stopping it moves to key frame 0. The idea is the the last key frame should be quite close to the first (keynum[0]). This works well if you have your transporter perform a large loop when moving.

Properties

Unloading

You can specify at which keyframe you would like the mover to stop for unloading also the length of time for the Unloading.

Events

There is a dynamic array which can store events to trigger at certain keyframes. It's a dynamic array inside another dynamic array which mean you can call as many events as you like.

Sounds

The usual sounds and events will reposition themselves around the unloading key frame.

IE. if we had 6 keyframes and number 3 was the unloading keyframe then opened events and sounds would happen on keynum3 and all closing events and sounds after the unloading time has elapsed

Note:

At the moment there is a slight problem with using movers to transport vehicles these are caused when ;-
