Here is an alternate holy_water_flask. It is not a tile-damager, and affects single monsters, one at a time; even in groups. It is possible to miss with these. It could certainly use a custom model and icon; it presently uses default assets.

Code: Select all

defineObject{
	name = "holy_water_flask",
	baseObject = "flask",
	components = {
		{
			class = "Item",
			uiName = "Holy Water Flask",
			gameEffect = "Burns the undead",
			description = "A flask of blessed water.",
			gfxIndex = 150,
			impactSound = "impact_blunt",
			stackable = true,
			projectileRotationSpeed = 15,
			projectileRotationZ = -50,
			projectileRotationY = 40,
			weight = 0.5,
			stackable = true,
			traits = { "throwing_weapon" },
			ConvertToItemOnImpact = "holy_water_spray",
			onThrowAttackHitMonster = function(self, monster)
										monster.go:playSound("water_hit_small")
										if  monster.go.monster:hasTrait('undead') and not monster.go.burningmonster then
											monster.go:createComponent('BurningMonster')
											monster.go.poisonedParticle:setParticleSystem("devine_flames")
											monster.go:playSound("ice_hit")
											monster.go.burningmonster:setCausedByChampion(math.random(4))
											--[[ So I had an elaborate system in place to detect which champion
												 tossed the holy water flask; for the XP award after the monster dies.

												 But then I discover that the game apparently doesn't care (!?); it splits
												 the XP between the party members regardless of who caused the damage.
												So what is the purpose of :setCausedByChampion? (Because it's not Boolean)
											--]]

I'm not sure that I understand this corectly

You mean that if I throw one bomb (with the code of Akroma) on a monster groupe, it will spawn a fireburst for every monster that is part of the monstergroup?
Is that not the same thing when you throw a fire bomb or any other bomb on a monster group?
Normal bombs just spawn a tile damager where they land.
Akromas code spawns a tile damage for every monster on the tile.

But you don't have to use my method, you can just have onExplode spawn the tile damaging object on its location as it happens when the bomb would explode. (I forgot you can do that)
But don't forget setting the bomb type to nil so you don't spawn an extra effect on top of that.
It will print an error message to console every time though, but you can disable console error prints when you export the dungeon.

IIRC its a remnant from LoG1 where it did matter who delivers the killing blow.

Bad Akroma! :cry:

Place a script entity in your dungeon called 'combatTempScript' with (Zimber's) damageMonster code:

Code: Select all

function damageMonster(monster, baseDamage, playerSource, type)

I just had a look this afternoon at both Isaac and Akroma's new versions. Thanks for that! Sorry, I didn't notice that you posted messages here! I thought that this was resolved!

About the fireburst, well ok, I understand now.

Well I'd rather prefer to divise the damage by 2 in my actual definition to limit this "bug" effect, instead of adding a new kind of script, if my version didn't make any crash or error, that's ok for me. This "bomb" is not really "useful". I mean I've only made it to illustrate a part of the story in my mod.

I got a very simple question :

can I add minimalSaveState = true, to any object that has a ladder component?

Yes, LadderComponent is fine to use on minimalSaveState objects.

Another "silly" question :mrgreen:

is that possible to define a special wall texts with the minimalSaveState = true?

I mean, to add some text directly in the definition of the objet, and add the minimalthings that it will not be counted in the savegame

e.g: I have a wall text that say "danger" (or anything else), then define an object who got always the "danger" text.
