[Fixed for V0.49] Wall-decoration and alcove

Post by THOM » 5-Apr-08 15:22

If you put a wall-decoration over an alcove you normally shouldn't reach the object in the alcove. But if you have it in the editor in this order:

-alcove
-walldecoration
-object

you can reach the object but the decoration is over the alcove

while have it in that order:

-walldecoration
-alcove
-object

you cannot reach the object but the decoration is under the alcove.

That's very strange, are you sure? If an object is the last item in the list, it's always 'on top' of everything else so you should be able to pick it up in both cases, even if it looks strange in the dungeon.

It is exactly like I described it. Apart from egsample one, where you have the object drawn over the decoration, means: outside of the alcove (and nothing is changed, when you change the order in the editor).

This might come from the old DM object - items were separate from wall objects, so were always at the end of the list even if you couldn't pick them up

I guess no matter where the item is in the list, you can take it out of the wall if the correct wall item is on top

The 'correct' item order is probably:

Object
Wall decoration
Alcove

As the list might be in reverse order? (the top is on top?)

This is now fixed for V0.49 (the problem was that RTC only recognised alcoves if they were the first item on the tile).
