Death Sectors?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me how to set sectors where, if you enter it, it causes instant death? Similar to the Damage - 10% etc. ones, and Im pretty sure it can be done. I've looked through a couple of tutorials, but no joy.

So yeah... Thanks :)

It is a ZDoom only thing.

Other ports too, not just zdoom. Even Boom compatible ports can mimic the effect to some extent using voodoo dolls.

Mkay then. So there is no tag for Doom Builder for it?
No worries, cheers :)


THere is if you are making a ZDoom configuration map.

I know you can create a similar situation with Boom, but gets more complex and doesn't really give a "clean" effect.

Exactly, get Zdoom and all such stuff is available straight to your fingertips. Make the levels Zdoom (doom in hexen) and you can do alot.

Or create an invisible deadly unkillable melee monster via Dehacked. Populate the slime with it. After all, it's more realistic this way, because we can assume the slime is stuffed with piranhas and such. Note that this trick tends to do wrong in vanilla Doom and Boom and tall sectors, because the game acts 2d and monsters have infinite vertical range. Won't work under Doom 95 X(

-Zdoom has the instant death effect of STRIFE

-EDGE could create a new floor type that constantly does 10,000 damage (which even kills you in god mode). Eternity probably can too

-BOOM or Vanilla compatible maps can create a crusher just above the head of a voodoo doll (another player 1 start location in a tiny room off the map) surrounded by barrels, and when you enter the killer sector the lines around the edge start the crushing. Note that this kills you when you walk into the sector, so if you have a long way to fall down you'll die before you hit the bottom. Also Legacy doesn't support Voodoo dolls

-Alternatively for Boom or Vanilla, you can make 'deadly lasers' which are a teleport line which teleports you 'into' the voodoo doll of yourself, preferably in a totally black room. So you walk into the lasers and it all goes black and you die.
