Statnum

From EDukeWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Statnums are used by the game internally to see whether something is an actor, player, projectile, etc, and then process it appropriately.

Name Number Description
STAT_DEFAULT 0 Sprites that are not defined by the CON code as actors, and are not projectiles, etc, have a statnum of 0. (i.e. the floor texture sprites used to make up a sprite bridge)
STAT_ACTOR 1 Actors. Sprites with a statnum of 1 will execute the actor code that applies to their tile number in the CON scripts.
STAT_ZOMBIEACTOR 2 Sleepers. Sprites taking a break from code execution (e.g. a Pig Cop that has been left alone for long enough will revert to statnum 2, only waking up and going back to statnum 1 upon seeing the player again)
STAT_EFFECTOR 3
STAT_PROJECTILE 4 Projectiles. This includes hardcoded projectiles like RPG, FREEZEBLAST, and SHRINKSPARK, as well as custom projectiles. It does not include hitscan projectiles (bullets), since those are not sprites that exist in the game world. (SHOTSPARK1, the sprite spawned by bullets, is not itself a projectile.)
STAT_MISC 5
STAT_STANDABLE 6 On spawn, the following sprites have statnum 6: BOLT1+, SIDEBOLT1+, VIEWSCREEN, VIEWSCREEN2, CRANE, TRASH, WATERDRIP, WATERDRIPSPLASH, PLUG, WATERBUBBLEMAKER, MASTERSWITCH, DOORSHOCK, TREE1, TREE2, TIRE, CONE, BOX, FLOORFLAME, CEILINGSTEAM, OOZFILTER, CRACK1-CRACK4, FIREEXT, TOILETWATER.

A few other ones become STANDABLE on seeing the player (changing from ZOMBIEACTOR): RUBBERCAN, EXPLODINGBARREL, WOODENHORSE, HORSEONSIDE, CANWITHSOMETHING, CANWITHSOMETHING2-4, FIREBARREL, FIREVASE, NUKEBARREL, NUKEBARRELDENTED, NUKEBARRELLEAKED, TRIPBOMB.

STAT_LOCATOR 7
STAT_ACTIVATOR 8
STAT_TRANSPORT 9
STAT_PLAYER 10 Player and Holoduke
STAT_FX 11 RESPAWN, MUSICANDSFX
STAT_FALLER 12 Decorative sprites that have a nonzero hitag to make them destructible are assigned to the FALLER statnum.
STAT_DUMMYPLAYER 13
STAT_LIGHT 14
TSPR_TEMP 99 A tspr will have this when it is a shadow cast by an actor.
STAT_MIRROREDACTOR 100 A tspr will have this when it is part of a mirror reflection.
MAXSTATUS 1024 A sprite id with this statnum is invalid, meaning that it has been deleted or just never existed in the map. Do NOT try to destroy a sprite by setting this value on it, instead use the killit command or else try setting the sprite's xrepeat to zero.

It was once not suggested to manually change statnum via "setactor[].statnum" because it would not update the game's internal linked lists, causing oddball occurrences like sprites freezing in midair and general game state corruption. "setactor[].statnum" is an alias of changespritestat in newer versions of EDuke32, preventing this corruption from occurring.

Unassigned status numbers are reserved for future EDuke32 features. Please ask the developers to allocate an official user statnum range for CON-side features, should this be desired.
