=———————–= BF2:Sandbox Readme 0.4 January 15, 2007 =———————–= http://labs.elxx.net/ http://sircommunity.com/ =———————–= Make sure “Word Wrap” is turned on in your text editor. =———————–= A more complete documentation will be made available, time permitting, at http://labs.elxx.net/sbxwiki/ =———————–= INSTALLATION ==================================== Simply run the installer, making sure that you install into your BF2 directory. A desktop shortcut will be created. UPGRADE FROM 0.3/0.3a ==================================== You will need to uninstall the previous version of Sandbox before you run the 0.4 installer. All your saved creations will be preserved, don’t worry! GETTING STARTED ==================================== First, click Multiplayer and Create Local Game. Add the map you want to the rotation, then hit Start Server. Create a squad and then spawn at a spawnpoint of your choice. Open up the Server/Player info screen (default Tab) to get a list of the spawnable objects. Right-click to gain mouse control. Click on an object you wish to create and take your finger off Tab. You will then have it in your grip. You can move it around simply by pointing your gun, and you can use the other options on the command rose to further manipulate the object. You can then leave the object in its place by hitting Drop Object. If you picked up a ragdoll object, right-click the Drop/Freeze button to freeze the object in its place. Then, if you want to spawn another copy of the object (with the same rotation), simply click Create Object. To save/load your creations, type the following options into the chat: @save nameofcreation @load nameofcreation They will be saved into mods/sandbox/saved/. MULTIPLAYER ==================================== In [mods/sandbox/settings/sandbox.con], you need to set an admin or two, this specifies who can save/clear the sandbox while in MP mode as well as use the Admin Tools. Due to limitations in the BF2 engine, there are a few differences between SP and MP games: * The distance of the visual tracer (white circle) does not change. * Ladders cannot be spawned in Multiplayer.
