Sector

Sectors are convex polyhedrons that define a negative-space region. Sectors are the primary structures in levels and represent an area where things can exist. Each face of a sector is called a surface. Sectors are connected together by adjoins.

Sector Properties

Sectors can have several properties specifying particular behavior.

  • Ambient Light - Lighting value that is added to things within the sector.
  • Extra Light - Lighting value that is added to all of the surfaces of the sector.
  • Colormap - The 8-bit palette that is applied to 8-bit textures while the camera is inside the sector. Software mode only
  • Tint - The multiplicative RGB color effect that is applied while the camera is inside the sector.
  • Boundbox - Affects physics. Unknown.
  • Collidebox - Affects physics. Unknown.
  • Center - Mathematical center of the sector.
  • Radius - Affects physics. Unknown.
  • Sound - Ambient sound that is played when the camera is inside the sector.

COG Messages

The following COG messages can be sent by sectors to linked scripts:

  • Entered - Sent when a thing enters the sector.
  • Exited - Sent when a thing leaves the sector.
