      Tags are used to attach external models to a model. Attachment means that the external models origin aligns itself with the models tag location and orientation. As the external model is parented to the tag (nested in tag space), any animation of the tag will also affect the external model.   Domain specific scripts tell the engine which external models to attach to a given tag. These scripts are either located in mapscript files (attachtotag command) or .skin files. Sometimes they are also hard coded.   An example use case is a hat model (defined separately) attached to a head model. This way, characters can be assembled with different looks without having to duplicate their model definitions. Tags therefore support reuse.   Another example use case is that of a tank turret model attached to a tank model. Instead of having a shooting animation (rotate turret left, shoot, rotate turret right) be recorded as vertex positions across several key-frames inside a single model, a tag can be used to control the shooting animation of a separated model. This safes memory, as the tags animation data most likely takes much less space compared to the animation data of the tank turret inside a single model.   However, reuse and memory savings are traded against loss in performance. Vertex positions of the external models have to be recalculated against the current frame tags location and orientation.

      We need more 3d modellers, Blueprint makers, 2d gfx and so on.
      If you feel you can contribute to anything, let us know!
      Cheers!

    By Teuthis,

    I just donated my entire mapping sources to Wolffiles. These files contain everything I ever assembled on ET mapping. Even all unpublished work is included there, so are a dozen of self-made unpublished tutorials on scripting etc. Some folks might find parts of it useful. There are also some neat unpublished prefabs in there, like a parachut spawn, teleporter, maps that use random effects, everything I ever worked on.
