A Teleport portal - How?

Post » Sun Aug 09, 2009 1:31 am

Hi. Iv an idea going on and Id like to create a teleport portal - something like an oblivion gate (but not one), where the player and any other NPC walks through a gate, between two towers, whatever, and is teleported to another location.

Trouble is, I'm not sure where to start. Can anyone give me a pointer please.

It's just a "door" that is activated by a trigger other than direct activation - i.e you don't have to click something. Typically with a trigger zone, which is activated by the player entering it, but you could use a floor plate or any other method of indirecting the door activation. Look at the various descriptions around of how to set up a trap, the same mechanisms will work for this.

And incidentally, an Oblivion gate acts more like a regular door, because you DO need to click on it. Walking through doesn't activate it, although there is a mod around to make it do so, which may be a good source of "how to". The name "Walking to Oblivion" rings a bell somewhere, but that might just be a thread title.

Iv been playing with this, but I cant seem to get the script right. I want to be able to move/teleport the player and any NPC that runs into the zone to a specific location, but so far all Iv managed to do is to lock up the game!

Can anyone give any advice about how to script this?
