Title: CreateEntity enemy map
Post by: TheRealGDColon on November 22, 2016, 05:40:30 PM
As some people might know, you can spawn in larger enemies such as The Yes Men or LIES by using the internal command createentity(x,y,1,direction,speed) in the sane room that the enemies appear in-game.

Here is an example:

Anyways, I've put together a map with all of the locations of these enemies.
You may have to zoom in to read it, sorry about that.

EDIT: Colors on the map are the same as in-game, as they are not changeable.

Special thanks to everyone from this thread for helping me find the coords for the ones I couldn't figure out

Nice job. This'll be pretty helpful.  :viridian:

Good map! It's pretty useful. :viridian:

However, I experimented a bit and found that all 10 types of enemies you can place directly onto the level can be placed with createentity(x,y,1,direction,speed) as well by creating them on their corresponding rooms. This may be useless, but it could complete your map as well.

I have created a printable VVVVVV level planning sheet (http://distractionware.com/forum/index.php?topic=3107.0 (http://distractionware.com/forum/index.php?topic=3107.0)) with all the enemies of your map, plus the ones that I discovered this way.

Does anyone know how big each of these "special" enemies are?  Tried searching for it, couldn't find this information. :(

open sprites.png and count how many pixels each one is
then divide it by 8 to find how many tiles it fits
alternatively use this (http://distractionware.com/forum/index.php?topic=3235.msg33576) and paste it below your sprites.png (or open the pdn or psd in paint.net or photoshop respectively) and count how many 16x16 boxes each sprite is and divide it by two

the enemies in 8,2 are ZZT centipedes. I feel the need to bring this up periodically because I feel like I'm the only one that got this reference

(8, 2) isn't on the map. unless you mean the enemies with size 8x2 in (19, 3)

Can you maybe make a polar dimension one of these? It is a pretty cool map

no this is like actually functional for custom levels
if you use createentity in these rooms you'll actually get these enemies
since the polar dimensions' and final level's coordinates are past 20,20 you cant use final level/polar dim. enemies in custom levels (besides the gravitron squares)

oh yeah, i forgot. but whaat if you use finalmode and then a delay then createentity?

no they're actually to the top left of the main map. the main map's coords both start at 100
oh yeah, i forgot. but whaat if you use finalmode and then a delay then createentity?
the delay is unnecessary. in fact, it appears to be detrimental to the entity 1 spawning in the outside dimension vvvvvv room if there's a delay. without the delay, it spawns correctly, but it's green if the y-coordinate provided to finalmode is 51, and yellow if the y-coordinate is 52.

still, what would be the point, though? if you finalmode to outside dimension vvvvvv in a custom level, assuming the game doesn't crash from trying to load out-of-bounds entcolours tiles from any platforms or conveyors (a type of platform) in the room, there's no way to get back to the main map without activating the game complete gamemode, which does things outside of your control (and some people might be pissed off about their main game saves being overwritten). it sounds like you somehow want to be able to spawn entities specific to outside dimension vvvvvv inside the main map, which is most certainly impossible.

A couple notes on the LIES entities:

As noted before, movement SPEED (the fifth argument) affects what type the LIES are. Movement TYPE (the fourth argument) seems to do nothing.

Speed 0 summons a spawner that functions as in the main game, spouting out LIES to the right (same way as entity movement type 4, it will move right until it goes offscreen and if it hits a wall, it stops) at regular intervals at what looks to be speed 6 (slightly faster than Viridian).

Speed 1 summons a single LIES entity at the coordinates given, which functions as one made by the spawner. It does NOT make multiple "LIES" without a spawner i.e. "Chinese Rooms"/"Spikes Do!" in the main game, I think you need an offscreen spawner for that.

Speed 2 makes a projector that I *think* removes LIES touching it but is otherwise unmoving NOPE IT DOES LITERALLY NOTHING WOOO.
