Custom Properties in EQGZI

Custom Properties are defined inside Blender. It is a way to convey custom EverQuest related information inside a .blend file to be set to EverQuest

Material Custom Properties

  • fx: Shader to use on this material. Examples of shaders can be seen in the Shader List
  • e_* properties: Each of these have a property value that are a type followed by a value, for example, the custom property e_TextureDiffuse0 may have the value 2 ra_watertest_c_01.dds set on it, defining a type of 2, and value of ra_watertest_c_01.dds.

Object Custom Properties

Object Region Custom Properties

A region is a cubic area that creates unique behavior within it. A classic region example is water or lava.

Note that all regions MUST have a prefix inside their object's name, the object name prefixes are: AWT_: water, ALV_: lava, APK_: pvp, ATP_##_: zoneline ## correlates with zone_points index, ASL_: ice, 'AVW_': Ice Lava? APV_: generic

Note also that all regions MUST be an empty cube. (Add, Empty -> Cube)

  • unknowna: TODO: identify
  • unknownb: TODO: identify
  • unknownc: TODO: identify

Notes regarding regions after testing every combination [A-Z][A-Z][A-Z]: [B-Z][A-Z]P always results in a PVP region. The 4th character doesn't seem to matter, but it existing is important to make the region work. AVW and VW[A-Z] = Icy Lava, Damage type 246, with VWP resulting in Icy Lava PVP! ALV, LA[A-Z] = Lava, Damage type 250, with LAP resulting in Lava PVP. SL[A-Z] and WT[A-Z] were all water regions, with SLP and WTP resulting in Water PVP.

Object Emitter Custom Properties

Particle effects are called emitters in EQ, and are defined by a zone_EnvironmentEmitter.txt file.

  • emit_id: value based on Environment Emitters
  • emit_duration: how long in ms an emitter should occur for. By default 90000000

Object Sound Custom Properties

Sound custom properties impact the zone.emt file that tells the zone how to emit sounds, both one shots, and ambient sounds.

  • sound: file name of a sound, default none.wav
  • sound_active: when the sound should be played, default 0 (always). Other options: 1 (daytime), 2 (nighttime)
  • sound_volume: loudness of a sound, default 1.0 (max volume), range of 0.0 to 1.0
  • sound_fade_in: fade in in ms for a sound, default 0 (never fade)
  • sound_fade_out: fade out in ms for a sound, default 0 (never fade)
  • sound_type: loop parameter, default 0 (constantly), Other options: 1 (delayed repeat)
  • sound_radius: when person is this radius from the origin play at full sound, default 15.0 (15m range)
  • sound_distance: max distance from origin the sound can be heard, default 50.0 (50m range)
  • sound_rand_distance: distance in meters the sound can be played at randomly, default 0
  • sound_trigger_range: distance from origin for a player to trigger the sound being played, default 50.0 (50m range)
  • sound_min_repeat_delay: minimum delay before the sound repeats playback in ms, default 0
  • sound_max_repeat_delay: maximum delay before the sound repeats playback in ms, default 0
  • sound_xmi_index: xmi is a classic playback system, typically just use, default 0
  • sound_echo: echo level, default 0, range 0 to 1.0
  • sound_env_toggle: set whether playback can be controlled with environment sounds in options window, default 1

Object Door Custom Properties

  • door_id: Index of door in the zone
  • door_opentype: Door Open Types
  • door_guild: Guild ID that can interact with door Guild Schema
  • door_lockpick: Lockpicking Skill Required: -1 = Unpickable
  • door_keyitem: Normal item ID, used as a key (Item Schema)
  • door_nokeyring: No Key Ring (default 0): 0 = False, 1 = True
  • door_triggerdoor: Default 0, 0 For Current Door or use a Unique Door Identifier
  • door_triggertype: Default 0, 1 = Open a Type 255 door, 255 = Will Not Open
  • door_disable_timer:
  • door_doorisopen: Is door open? (default 0): 0 = false, 1 true
  • door_param:
  • dest_zone: Default NONE: Zone shortname clicking door takes you to (Zone List)
  • dest_instance: Zone Instance ID clicking door takes you to (Instance List Schema
  • door_dest_x: Destination X coordinate
  • door_dest_y: Destination Y coordinate
  • door_dest_z: Destination Z coordinate
  • door_dest_heading: Destination heading direction
  • door_invert_state: This column will basically behave like such: if the door has a click type and it is to raise up like a door, it will be raised on spawn of the door. Meaning it is inverted. Another example: If a Door Open Type is set to a spinning object on click, you could set this to 1 to have the door be spinning on spawn.
  • door_incline:
  • door_size: Default 100, scale of object
  • door_buffer:
  • door_client_version_mask: Default 4294967295: Client Version Mask
  • door_is_ldon_door: Is LDoN Door: 0 = False, 1 = True
  • door_min_expansion:
  • door_max_expansion:

Object Spawn Custom Properties

This is an optional feature added to assist with zone generation. When you define these custom properties on any object, inside your sql subfolder sql files will generate based on defined information below. Each field is what you'd expect in a database perspective

  • spawn2_id:
  • spawn2_pathgrid:
  • spawn2_respawntime:
  • spawn2_spawngroupid:
  • spawn2_variance:
  • spawn2_version:

  • spawngroup_id: Only required field to generate a spawngroup

  • spawngroup_delay:
  • spawngroup_despawn:
  • spawngroup_despawn_timer:
  • spawngroup_dist:
  • spawngroup_max_x:
