Moving platforms (which you can stand on)?
Author Text

How do I make platforms which follow a path (it goes up and down) and allow the character to stand on it and you can travel up with it? It doesn't work...

currently that is not supported right out of the box. gotta program it, unfortunately!

Ah, darn it. Hmm.... What a shame! I'll have to modify the level a bit to get around this (sad) limitation I suppose...

Add collision and the behavior below, it's the behavior from the documentation.
It works only with two path points.

<behavior jsname="behavior_moveBetweenPoints"
description="Move scene node between 2 points">
<property name="EndPoint" type="vect3d" default="100.0, 100.0, 100.0" />
<property name="Speed" type="float" default="0.02" />

behavior_moveBetweenPoints = function()
this.LastTime = null;
this.StartPoint = null;

// called every frame.
// 'node' is the scene node where this behavior is attached to.
// 'timeMs' the current time in milliseconds of the scene.
// Returns 'true' if something changed, and 'false' if not.
behavior_moveBetweenPoints.prototype.onAnimate = function(node, timeMs)
// get the time since the last frame

if (this.LastTime == null)
// we were never called before, so store the time and cancel
this.LastTime = timeMs;
this.StartPoint = ccbGetSceneNodeProperty(node, 'Position');
return false;

var delta = timeMs - this.LastTime;
this.LastTime = timeMs;
if (delta > 200) delta = 200; // never do movements longer than 200 ms

// move

var pos = ccbGetSceneNodeProperty(node, 'Position');

var movementVector = this.EndPoint.substract(this.StartPoint);

if (pos.substract(this.StartPoint).getLength() > movementVector.getLength())
// end point reached, switch direction and restart

var tmp = this.StartPoint;
this.StartPoint = this.EndPoint;
this.EndPoint = tmp;

movementVector = this.EndPoint.substract(this.StartPoint);

// move


pos.x += movementVector.x * delta * this.Speed;
pos.y += movementVector.y * delta * this.Speed;
pos.z += movementVector.z * delta * this.Speed;

// set new position

ccbSetSceneNodeProperty(node, 'Position', pos);

return true;

I have been trying to do something similar to this also.

@cerrone: Wow, that is one heck of a script you got there. I am somewhat of a newbie when it comes to scripts, so I am wondering if I can ask you a favor: Is there a possibility you can make a very simple scene of a working example of this script in action? Nothing too fancy, just the camera and a moving platform, that's all. And once you have it done, I will really appreciate a lot if you were to post a download link to the actual CopperCube file(.ccb). By looking at the CopperCube file and studying carefully, I can get a better grasp on how everything works and comes together.
