Fake walls??

Post by crisman » Sun Sep 23, 2012 1:06 am

Hi everyone

first of all, sorry if my english is bad.
I've discovered how to create fake walls (you can see the wall, but you can pass through it as nothing is there) without using any sort of scripts or custom assets.
And no, I did not have the 'no collision' on while testing this...
All you need to do is to place 2 secret doors at the same spot, and set one of them as open.
One of them will be fake, while the other will act like a regular door.
Yes, it's a pretty nice effect, usefull for creating secrets really hard to find :mrgreen:
But this bug ruined my floor...
The reason I've stacked two secret door in one spot is because I'm building a 3-maze in 1. Basically you can change the maze by pressing a button.
And for scripting reason I had to stack the doors together.
The multi-maze works, but due to this bug is completely ruined.
Any idea how to fix this, or do I have to manually scripting every door opening or closing (probably I guess...)??

I ran into this behavior when placing portcullis and gratings on top of each other. You can actually make it pass-through OR solid depending on which you place first. So if you want the wall to be solid, you should place the closed door first. And place the open door first if you want it to be a fake wall.
