CLASS_HUMAN_MILITARY
. Lets say you added in Black Ops from Op4. If they were CLASS_HUMAN_MILITARY
then they would be friends with human grunts, but that isn't the way it worked in Op4, so lets add a CLASS_BLACK_OP
. First open up cbase.h
, scroll down a little and you should see this:
// For CLASSIFY
#define CLASS_NONE 0
#define CLASS_MACHINE 1
#define CLASS_PLAYER 2
#define CLASS_HUMAN_PASSIVE 3
#define CLASS_HUMAN_MILITARY 4
#define CLASS_ALIEN_MILITARY 5
#define CLASS_ALIEN_PASSIVE 6
#define CLASS_ALIEN_MONSTER 7
#define CLASS_ALIEN_PREY 8
#define CLASS_ALIEN_PREDATOR 9
#define CLASS_INSECT 10
#define CLASS_PLAYER_ALLY 11
#define CLASS_PLAYER_BIOWEAPON 12 // hornets and snarks.launched by players
#define CLASS_ALIEN_BIOWEAPON 13 // hornets and snarks.launched by the alien menace
#define CLASS_BARNACLE 99 // special because no one pays attention to it, and it eats a wide cross-section of creatures.
Now, between CLASS_ALIEN_BIOWEAPON
and CLASS_BARNACLE
add in this:
#define CLASS_PLAYER_BIOWEAPON 12 // hornets and snarks.launched by players
#define CLASS_BLACK_OP 14 // <-- new Black Op faction!
#define CLASS_BARNACLE 99 // special because no one pays attention to it, and it eats a wide cross-section of creatures.
Now that we have our new class declared, we have to open up monsters.cpp
. Find the IRelationship
function for the class CBaseMonster
. Close to the top of the function you should see a grid of code like this:
static int iEnemy[14][14] =
{ // NONE MACH PLYR HPASS HMIL AMIL APASS AMONST APREY APRED INSECT PLRALY PBWPN ABWPN
/*NONE*/ { R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO, R_NO, R_NO },
/*MACHINE*/ { R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_DL, R_DL },

/*HUMANPASSIVE*/{ R_NO ,R_NO ,R_AL ,R_AL ,R_HT ,R_FR ,R_NO ,R_HT ,R_DL ,R_FR ,R_NO ,R_AL, R_NO, R_NO },
/*HUMANMILITAR*/{ R_NO ,R_NO ,R_HT ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_HT ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_HT, R_NO, R_NO },
/*ALIENMILITAR*/{ R_NO ,R_DL ,R_HT ,R_DL ,R_HT ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_NO, R_NO },
/*ALIENPASSIVE*/{ R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO, R_NO, R_NO },
/*ALIENMONSTER*/{ R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_NO, R_NO },
/*ALIENPREY */{ R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_FR ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_NO, R_NO },
/*ALIENPREDATO*/{ R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_HT ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_NO, R_NO },
/*INSECT*/ { R_FR ,R_FR ,R_FR ,R_FR ,R_FR ,R_NO ,R_FR ,R_FR ,R_FR ,R_FR ,R_NO ,R_FR, R_NO, R_NO },
/*PLAYERALLY*/ { R_NO ,R_DL ,R_AL ,R_AL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO, R_NO, R_NO },
/*PBIOWEAPON*/ { R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_NO, R_DL },
/*ABIOWEAPON*/ { R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_AL ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_DL, R_NO }
};
Ok, next is the main part of the tutorial. Examine the grid, first, change the
iEnemy[14][14]
to...
iEnemy[15][15]
Now you need to add one row and one column to the code grid. Just copy and paste the last column and row onto the grid. Change the labels to /*BLACKOP*/
and BLKOP
or whatever. Your grid should look like this:
static int iEnemy[15][15] =
{ // NONE MACH PLYR HPASS HMIL AMIL APASS AMONST APREY APRED INSECT PLRALY PBWPN ABWPN BLKOP
/*NONE*/ { R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO, R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO },
/*MACHINE*/ { R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO },
/*PLAYER*/ { R_NO ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO, R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL },
/*HUMANPASSIVE*/{ R_NO ,R_NO ,R_AL ,R_AL ,R_HT ,R_FR ,R_NO ,R_HT ,R_DL ,R_FR ,R_NO ,R_AL, R_NO ,R_NO ,R_HT },
/*HUMANMILITAR*/{ R_NO ,R_NO ,R_HT ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_HT ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_HT, R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NM },
/*ALIENMILITAR*/{ R_NO ,R_DL ,R_HT ,R_DL ,R_HT ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_NO ,R_NO ,R_HT },
/*ALIENPASSIVE*/{ R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO, R_NO ,R_NO ,R_HT },
/*ALIENMONSTER*/{ R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL },
/*ALIENPREY */{ R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_FR ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL },
/*ALIENPREDATO*/{ R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_HT ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_NO ,R_NO ,R_HT },
/*INSECT*/ { R_FR ,R_FR ,R_FR ,R_FR ,R_FR ,R_NO ,R_FR ,R_FR ,R_FR ,R_FR ,R_NO ,R_FR, R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO },
/*PLAYERALLY*/ { R_NO ,R_DL ,R_AL ,R_AL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO, R_NO ,R_NO ,R_HT },
/*PBIOWEAPON*/ { R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL },
/*ABIOWEAPON*/ { R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_AL ,R_NO ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_DL, R_DL ,R_NO ,R_DL },
/*BLACKOP*/ { R_NO ,R_NO ,R_HT ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_HT ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_DL ,R_NO ,R_NO ,R_HT, R_NO ,R_NO ,R_NO }
};
Now we are almost done. If you look at the grid you see a lot of R_
this and R_
that. In monsters.h
take a look at this code:
// monster to monster relationship types
#define R_AL -2 // (ALLY) pals. Good alternative to R_NO when applicable.
#define R_FR -1// (FEAR)will run
#define R_NO 0// (NO RELATIONSHIP) disregard
#define R_DL 1// (DISLIKE) will attack
#define R_HT 2// (HATE)will attack this character instead of any visible DISLIKEd characters
#define R_NM 3// (NEMESIS) A monster Will ALWAYS attack its nemsis, no matter what
Those are the monster relationship types. Using those defines set up your Black Op to have its enemies and friends. It works just like a normal grid, take ALIENMILITAR
for example, going across it's grid section, it will dislike machines, hate players, dislike passive humans, etc. Now the only thing you have to do is go into your monster's Classify()
function and have it return CLASS_BLACK_OP
and you're all set. I hope you learned from the tutorial. Now good luck.
