MapRevealers make the entire automap visible. Essentially this is like Doom's computer map without predefined sprites.


Custom map revealers

Any item that inherits from MapRevealer can always be picked up and will make the entire level visible in the automap. This class doesn't define any properties and only uses the Inventory properties that are related to picking up the item (i.e. pickup message and pickup sound) and the respawn time.

Examples:

ZScript

Class TheMap : MapRevealer 1337
{
  Default
  {
     inventory.pickupsound "misc/p_pkup";
     inventory.pickupmessage "Cool map item!";
     inventory.respawntics 2010;
     +COUNTITEM
  }
  States
  {
  Spawn:
    MMAP A -1 bright;
    stop;
  }
}

DECORATE

actor TheMap : MapRevealer 1337
{
  inventory.pickupsound "misc/p_pkup"
  inventory.pickupmessage "Cool map item!"
  inventory.respawntics 2010
  +COUNTITEM
  states
  {
  Spawn:
    MMAP A -1 bright
    stop
  }
}
