How to create a Teleporter

Start Doom Builder
Create three sectors together like the following image.


The inner left sector will be the Teleporter and the inner right sector will be the Teleport Destination.

Lets make the left inner sector look like a Teleporter.

Select and Edit the the inner left sector.


Set the ceiling and floor flats to GATE4 for this example.


Now it is time to make a working Teleporter.

Basic (vanilla) Doom
==============================
Select and Edit all four linedefs for the inner left sector.


Give the Sector Tag field an unused number (For this example we will use 1).

Now you have to set the Linedef Action to 97. When you use the Select Action button, the action is located at Teleport > WR Teleport (97).


Here is what your properties should look like.


Now lets setup the destination sector.

Select and Edit the right inner sector.


Give your destination sector a Sector Tag number(Which in this example is 1).


Now you must place a Teleport Destination Thing (Thing Type: 14) in this sector.
Also, lets have it face west (Angle: 180).



==============================

ZDOOM
==============================
Select and Edit all four linedefs for the inner left sector.


Give the Sector Tag field an unused number (For this example we will use 1).

Now you have to set the Linedef Action to 70. When you use the Select Action button, the action is located at Teleport > H Teleport (70).


Here is what your properties should look like.


The Linedef Properties to set are:
Linedef Action: 70
Activation: Player walk accross
Flags: Repeatable Effect
Target Sector Tag: 1

Now lets setup the destination sector.

Select and Edit the right inner sector.


Give your destination sector a Sector Tag number (Which in this example is 1).


Now you must place a Teleport Destination Thing (Thing Type: 14) in this sector.
Also, lets have it face west (Angle: 180).



==============================

Save and Run your map.

One of these days I will. Not today, Not tomarrow, Not this week, Not this month, Not Next Month. Sometime I will... Most likely when the ZDaemon Coop Megawad is finished I will put these on a site.

How to create a Capture The Flag Map

Creating a Capture the Flag map is rather easy with ZDaemon.

The following thing numbers are used to do so:
5080 = Blue team start
5081 = Red team start
5083 = Green start
5084 = White start

5130 = Blue flag
5131 = Red flag
5132 = Yellow Flag
5133 = Green Flag
5134 = White Flag


The advantage of using these new things over the old keycard/particle method is that these thing numbers are standard across all 3 major ports. Maps created using these things will work on not just Zdaemon but also on Skulltag and Odamex - although I don't believe that Odamex supports the Yellow/Green/White things at this point. Also yellow (neutral) flags are designed for one-flag CTF which is unsupported on Zdaemon at this time.

Oh and if you're using Doombuilder then you may find updating your configuration files to be helpful if you want to use these new things.
Zdaemon (Doom) config
Zdaemon (Doom in Hexen) config

Simply save them into your Doombuilder directory and you're good to go.

Is it possible to make a pillar that raises up and stays for 4 seconds when you walk into a certain sector?

you could handle the pillar as a lift and make it lower wait and raise.
or use
one linedef to lower the floor [pillar] and another to raise it.
you wont be able to define the exact time though.

So its possible ,but limited.

I thought a sector could only be assigned one tag, so you couldn't have one linedef to lower lift, and one to raise it. Is this possible? (In vanilla of course) Smile

yes, a sector can only have one tag but lots of linedefs can reference that tag in a variety of ways.

whatever the format Wink

A handy tip in DB, the mouse 'scroll' is very very useful when changing sector heights in 3d mode, zooming in and out in 2d mode etc.
