Gun Mod Help (Semi-Automatic)


Drewseph

Recommended Posts

Greetings. I'm working on a mod that includes a few guns. For firing I'm using onPlayerRightClick, but the gun must be semi-automatic. Using onPlayerRightClick means the player can hold down the right mouse button to fire indefinitely, which I don't want. Is there any way I can fix this? I'm not using onPlayerStoppedUsing because that only works when the mouse button is released.

You have to create your own timer int variable.  On the initial press you would set it to the number of ticks (20 per second) you want the burst to occur, then count down every tick (maybe handle in the PlayerTickEvent) until you get to zero.  If you want the firing to occur a few times over the interval, you can use modulo function to quickly check whether to fire.

 

Anyway, it is up to you to keep track of the burst time.

Would this make the gun semi-automatic? I don't want it to just fire slower, I want it to have one shot per click.

If you're planning to use the mouse right click for the fire, you're actually in luck because there are already events that check for the start of an item's use: PlayerUseItemEvent.Start 

 

I think you can just handle that event to get what you want.

Exactly what I was looking for, thanks a ton!
