UT :: Actor (UT) >> Effects (UT) >> EIEffects (Package: EnhancedItems)

This class is part of the EnhancedItems package by Wormbo.

Internal Variables

bool bDestroyMe 
Specifies whether this effect is currently being destroyed after calling the DestroyMe() function. "Destroying" an EIEffect in this way needn't be the same as "Destroy()ing" it.
Legacy:EnhancedItems/EIDeathMessageMutator EIDMM 
The EIDeathMessageMutator is spawned by Legacy:EnhancedItems/EnhancedWeapons to make the EnhancedItems death messages work. You will have to spawn it yourself if your mod doesn't contain any Legacy:EnhancedItems/EnhancedWeapons and no other mod spawned it yet.


DestroyMe( ) 
Starts destroying the effect. This may not have the same effect as calling Destroy(). Especially the Legacy:EnhancedItems/PlayerShellEffect subclass uses this function to start fading out the effect.
RestoreKillType( ) 
Reverts the effect of SetKillType(). Call this exactly as often as SetKillType() after doing damage or directly killing players.
SetKillType(bool bSplashHit, bool bHeadHit, class<Actor (UT)> DamageProjectileClass) 
Prepares the specified Legacy:EnhancedItems/EnhancedWeapon or Legacy:EnhancedItems/EnhancedProjectile class' death messages to be used when a player is killed. Call this function before you damage or kill a player and revert its effect after you're done.

Some Direct Subclasses in EnhancedItems-based Mods

You are invited to explore the EnhancedItems-based mods' source code to see how these classes make use of the EIEffects features.

  • BSLightningBolt – a section of the lightning beam emitted by an exploding Black Shark missile in Rockets UT
  • EIShockwave – the Redeemer shockwave in the Enhanced Items Mod
  • RedeemerExplosion – the explosion flare in the center of the Redeemer explosion in Rockets UT and Redeemer 2k3 (this one does the damage)
