Trigger placement

Post by VooDoo-(DOG)- » Sun May 21, 2017 3:44 pm

 
Is there danger in placing triggers too close together like this?

By danger, I mean is there a chance the engine might not register 1 of them, or even worse 2 or all of them, due to their close proximity?

WOOF!

Well obviously as kent just said, it would trigger all three of them if you happen to stand in the middle. You can turn radii view on to see radius of the triggers directly. In UED2 it even works in the 3d mode while long ago mappers had to rely on the 2d views entirely to see the radius.

The reason you can trigger more at once is practically out of convenience I'd say. It just can be handy sometimes for many events.

Many actors just do nothing in their Touch function, while Engine.Trigger actors check if the touched actor meet the conditions for triggering and then either change the game state in the corresponding manner or do nothing if triggering is not supposed to happen.

Thanks Masterkent, you have a unique way of explaining things precisely, which for someone like me is great. :)
I like your new avatar (although I had to search to find out who it was!). Cheers! :mrgreen:
