Damage not registering
« on: October 18, 2010, 16:49:41 »

I set the damage level to 30% but when I test my mission, no damage occurs, I run into static ships, buoys etc., still no damage.  Any ideas?

Thanks

What “Damage level” are you setting?

The damage treshold under the Description in the Missions tab.

That has nothing to do with how or when ships take damage. It only determines the minimum level of damage indicated on the HUD necessary to fail the mission.
There is a full explanation in the Mission Editor tutorial:

Damage threshold is the minimum % damage that will cause the mission to fail. If you
leave it at the default of -1, the mission will not fail simply due to any damage to a player
ship—however, damage below the waterline can still cause a player ship to sink, and
that will terminate the mission in failure.
Damage inflicted via a damage_engine trigger will still affect speed or steering and may
make it impossible to finish the mission.
For all but the simplest arcade style missions, you should set a positive Damage
threshold just high enough to allow leaving some paint on the dock.

I read that part a few times before I posted the above, and still don't get it:

"If you leave it at the default of -1, the mission will not fail simply due to any damage to a player
ship"
Q:  What causes damage and when does it occur?

"Damage below the waterline can still cause a player ship to sink, and
that will terminate the mission in failure."

Q: What causes below waterline damage?

I really don't want to use a damage trigger.

Thanks

Damage depends upon what hits what and where. Some vessels can’t be damaged. Damage below the waterline happens when a ship hits a hard object below the waterline.
