Member Function Documentation

void Projectile::presimulate ( float  seconds = 1.0f  ) 

Updates the projectile's positional and collision information.

This function will first delete the projectile if it is a server object and is outside it's ProjectileData::lifetime. Also responsible for applying gravity, determining collisions, triggering explosions, emitting trail particles, and calculating bounces if necessary.

Parameters:
seconds Amount of time, in seconds since the simulation's start, to advance.
Example:
// Tell the projectile to process a simulation event, and provide the amount of time
// that has passed since the simulation began.
%seconds = 2.0;
%projectile.presimulate(%seconds);
Note:
This function is not called if the SimObject::hidden is true.

Member Data Documentation

Starting position for the projectile.

Starting velocity for the projectile.

ID number of the object that fired the projectile.

Note:
If the projectile was fired by a WeaponImage, sourceObject will be the object that owns the WeaponImage. This is usually the player.

The sourceObject's weapon slot that the projectile originates from.
