Description

A new particle generator flag is needed:

Instantly kill a generator when the associated mobj dies.

Sometimes it is necessary to use the static flag when
creating generators, but as expected they live on after
the associated mobj dies.

Instantly kill a generator when the associated mobj dies.

Does "mobj" refer to a monster that dies? Is the problem that the generator is still active on the corpse?

That might be a bit trickier to change, because the death of a monster isn't easily visible from the engine's point of view.

Yes I'm refering to monsters where the generator is still activ
on the corpse.

Might be more elegant to set a scope condition (or some kind of selector) that says the target must be a mobj with health > 0.

#5 Updated by danij about 7 years ago

Actually that would probably be a better solution anyway, given that mobjs can be reanimated (e.g., Archvile in DOOM).
