View Full Version : The Disco Floor - something to step upon... :o)
20th Dec 2006, 05:15 PM
I'm doing some experimenting with the colorchanging disco floor (dancecube is the file internal name), since I am looking for an object the sims can step upon and thus creating an elevated level that is not as high as a fundament.
Since I don't want the color to change anymore, this function must be removed, still having not too many clues about SimAntics I'm looking for a little help here.
The colorchange is obviously done in the subroutine called "Fade To Next". This is called in "Function Main". What do I have to do or remove to stop the colorchange of this nifty little thingy to use it as a plain stepstone only?
Any help appreciated. :help:

Okay, forget that, I presumed wrongly that the sims can step upon that object which isn't the case, so I can't use it anyway...
However: anyone with a neat idea how to create slightly elevated surfaces that sims can step on?

I wonder if the step over animation that sims do when a toy or item is on the floor could be used, changing the root_trans to elevate them slightly over the play time of the anim, and then customize the anims played while on the object to have a similar change in the root_trans. Changing the root_trans height in Milkshape I was able to play animations at different heights, so I am just thinking out loud here. :)

If I rethink: This is not only about sims but also about objects that can be placed on the elevated area.
Maybe a better way would be to find out how I can create foundations that are only half the height of the normal ones... I will have a look into Numenors article about walls and fences...
Edit: Hm. "...minimum height of partitions are 4 clicks...".
I guess that means the minimum height is equal to the terrain-height I get when doing 4 clicks in the elevation tool? A pity...

May try out V1ND1CARE's
Tutorial on Wall Height Reduction Under 4 Clicks
The min. height of a partition seems to be limitingly set by the build tools themselves...(probably the wall partition template(added) or more likely the floor layer positioning.) while the undo-redo scripting can by-pass that preset limit.
