PlayerPersecutor Class

Interface for player persecutor handling.

To use this class, include the UniginePlayerPersecutor.h file.

PlayerPersecutor Class

Members


PlayerPersecutor ()

Constructor. Creates a new persecutor with default properties.

Math::Vec3 getContactPoint (int contact)

Returns world coordinates of the contact point.

Arguments

  • int contact - Contact number.

Return value

Contact point.

float getMinDistance ()

Returns the minimum possible distance between the persecutor and the target.

Return value

Distance in units.

void setMaxThetaAngle (float angle)

Sets the maximum theta angle (zenith angle, also known as pitch angle) that determines how far downward the player can look.

Arguments

  • float angle - New angle in degrees in range [0;90]. The higher the value, the further down the player can look.

void setPhiAngle (float angle)

Sets the phi angle (azimuth angle, also known as yaw angle). This angle determines the horizontal viewing direction, i.e. left or right.

Arguments

  • float angle - New angle in degrees. Positive values rotate the player right; negative values rotate the player left.

float getContactDepth (int contact)

Returns penetration depth by the given contact.

Arguments

  • int contact - Contact number.

Return value

Penetration depth.

void setDistance (float distance)

Sets a distance between the target node and the persecutor. The value will be clamped between the minimum and the maximum distance values.

Arguments

  • float distance - New distance in units.

float getMaxDistance ()

Returns the maximum possible distance between the persecutor and the target.

Return value

Distance in units.

void setCollisionMask (int mask)

Sets a collision mask for the persecutor's collision sphere. Two objects collide, if they both have matching masks.

Arguments

  • int mask - An integer value, each bit of which is used to set a bit mask.

int isFixed ()

Returns a value indicating if the persecutor can freely rotate around its target or it is oriented strictly in one direction. The fixed viewing direction is the same direction the persecutor was looking in when the setFixed() function is called, though it can be reset to another one afterwards.

Return value

1 if the persecutor moves independently; otherwise, 0.

void setThetaAngle (float angle)

Sets the theta angle of the player (zenith angle, also known as pitch angle). This angle determines the vertical viewing direction, i.e. upwards or downwards. The value will be clamped between the minimum and the maximum theta angle.

Arguments

  • float angle - New angle in degrees in range [-90;90]. If a positive value is specified, the player will look upwards; if a negative value is specified, the player will look downwards.

Math::vec3 getAnchor ()

Returns coordinates of an anchor point (in the target node local coordinates), to which the persecutor is bound.

Return value

Anchor coordinates.

void setFixed (int fixed)

Sets a value indicating if the persecutor can freely rotate around its target or it is oriented strictly in one direction. The fixed viewing direction is the same direction the persecutor was looking in when this function is called, though it can be reset to another one afterwards.

Arguments

  • int fixed - 1 to move independently, 0 to follow the target.

float getCollisionRadius ()

Returns radius of the persecutor's collision sphere.

Return value

Radius of the collision sphere in units.

int getCollisionMask ()

Returns a collision mask of the persecutor's collision sphere. Two objects collide, if they both have matching masks.

Return value

An integer value, each bit of which is used to set a bit mask.

float getDistance ()

Returns the current distance between the target and the persecutor. The value is clamped between the minimum and the maximum distance values.

Return value

Distance in units.

Ptr<Node> getTarget ()

Returns the object currently followed by the persecutor.

Return value

Target node smart pointer.

void setAnchor (const Math::vec3 & anchor)

Sets coordinates of an anchor point (in the target node local coordinates), to which the persecutor is bound.

Arguments

  • const Math::vec3 & anchor - Anchor coordinates.

float getTurning ()

Returns a velocity of player turning.

Return value

Turning velocity in degrees per second.

int getContactSurface (int contact)

Returns the surface of the current object, which is in contact (used for collisions with non-physical object).

Arguments

  • int contact - Contact number.

Return value

Surface number.

Math::vec3 getContactNormal (int contact)

Returns a normal of the contact point, in world coordinates.

Arguments

  • int contact - Contact number.

Return value

Normal of the contact point..

float getThetaAngle ()

Returns the theta angle (zenith angle, also known as pitch angle). This angle determines the vertical viewing direction, i.e. upwards or downwards. If a positive value is returned, the player looks upwards; if a negative value is returned, the player looks downwards. The value is clamped between the minimum and the maximum theta angle.

Return value

Angle in degrees.

Ptr<Shape> getContactShape (int num)

Returns a shape that collided with the player.

Arguments

  • int num - Contact number.

Return value

Shape in contact.

void setMaxDistance (float distance)

Sets the maximum possible distance between the persecutor and the target.

Arguments

  • float distance - New distance in units.

void setMinThetaAngle (float angle)

Sets the minimum theta angle (zenith angle, also known as pitch angle) that determines how far upward the player can look.

Arguments

  • float angle - New angle in degrees in range [-90;0]. The lower the value, the further up the player can look.

int getCollision ()

Returns a value indicating if collisions with persecutor's sphere should be taken into account.

Return value

1 if collisions are taken into account; otherwise, 0.

float getMinThetaAngle ()

Returns the minimum theta angle (zenith angle, also known as pitch angle) that determines how far upward the player can look. The lower the value, the further up the player can look.

Return value

Angle in degrees.

void setTarget (const Ptr<Node> & target)

Sets an object, which will be followed by the persecutor.

Arguments

  • const Ptr<Node> & target - New target node.

void setMinDistance (float distance)

Sets the minimum possible distance between the persecutor and the target.

Arguments

  • float distance - New distance in units.

void setCollisionRadius (float radius)

Sets the radius of the persecutor's collision sphere.

Arguments

  • float radius - New radius of the collision sphere.

void setTurning (float turning)

Sets a velocity of player turning.

Arguments

  • float turning - Turning velocity in degrees per second. If a negative value is provided, 0 will be used instead.

Ptr<Object> getContactObject (int contact)

Returns an object participating in the contact with the player (used for collisions with physical object).

Arguments

  • int contact - Contact number.

Return value

Object in contact.

void setCollision (int collision)

Sets a value indicating if collisions with persecutor's sphere should be taken into account.

Arguments

  • int collision - 1 to enable collisions, 0 to let the persecutor fly through objects.

int getNumContacts ()

Returns the number of contacts, in which the player's capsule participates.

Return value

Number of contacts.

float getPhiAngle ()

Returns the phi angle (azimuth angle, also known as yaw angle). This angle determines the horizontal viewing direction, i.e. left or right. Positive values rotate the player right; negative values rotate the player left.

Return value

Angle in degrees.

float getMaxThetaAngle ()

Returns the maximum theta angle (zenith angle, also known as pitch angle) that determines how far downward the player can look. The higher the value, the further down the player can look.

Return value

Angle in degrees.
