[Help] Adding night vision to custom helmet


Recommended Posts

Have a great day, reader!

I would like to ask for a little help about the following situation: I found this coding about custom night vision for Don't Starve singleplayer:

Spoiler

local light = inst.entity:AddLight()
    light:SetFalloff(0.2)
    light:SetIntensity(0.9)
    light:SetRadius(6.0)
    light:SetColour(RRR/255, GGG/255, BBB/255)
    light:Enable(false)
    inst:AddTag("sight_off")
    local function NightVision(inst)
        if GetClock() and GetWorld() then
            if GetClock():IsDay() and inst:HasTag("sight_on") and not GetWorld():IsCave() or
                GetClock():IsDusk() and inst:HasTag("sight_on") and not GetWorld():IsCave() then
                light:Enable(false)
                inst:AddTag("sight_off")
                inst:RemoveTag("sight_on")
            end
            if GetClock():IsNight() and inst:HasTag("sight_off") or 
                GetWorld():IsCave() and inst:HasTag("sight_off") then
                light:Enable(true)
                inst:AddTag("sight_on")
                inst:RemoveTag("sight_off")
            end
        end
    end
    inst:DoPeriodicTask( 0.0, function(inst)
        NightVision(inst)
    end)

My question is: If there's a way, how can this coding be transformed to be DST compatible, and to make it fit into a custom hat's prefab file (so the wearer gains the vision)?

I'm incredibly grateful for any tiny help :D

It's much easier here in DST.

In your item's equippable's OnEquip:

owner.components.playervision:ForceNightVision(true)
owner.components.playervision:SetCustomCCTable({})

You can set the custom colour cube table to something else if you want some display effect like Woodie's sepia tone or moggles/etc.

Then with OnUnequip:

owner.components.playervision:ForceNightVision(false)
owner.components.playervision:SetCustomCCTable(nil)

@CarlZalph Thanks for the info! :love_heart:

How can I get more informations about the colour cube tables?

 

Edit:

I've tried the codings. I might have messed up something, but they don't seem to work.

Neither this way:

local function OnEquip(inst, owner) 
        owner.AnimState:OverrideSymbol("swap_hat", "vrhead", "swap_hat")
        owner.AnimState:Show("HAT")
        owner.AnimState:Show("HAT_HAIR")
        owner.AnimState:Hide("HAIR_NOHAT")
        owner.AnimState:Hide("HAIR")
        owner.components.playervision:ForceNightVision(true)
        owner.components.playervision:SetCustomCCTable({})
        print('A')
        if owner:HasTag("player") then
            print('B')
            owner.AnimState:Hide("HEADBASE")
            owner.AnimState:Show("HEADBASE_HAT")
        end
end

local function OnUnequip(inst, owner) 
        owner.AnimState:Hide("HAT")
        owner.AnimState:Hide("HAT_HAIR")
        owner.AnimState:Show("HAIR_NOHAT")
        owner.AnimState:Show("HAIR")
        owner.components.playervision:ForceNightVision(false)
        owner.components.playervision:SetCustomCCTable(nil)
    
        if owner:HasTag("player") then
            owner.AnimState:Show("HEADBASE")
            owner.AnimState:Hide("HEADBASE_HAT")
        end
end

        owner.AnimState:Hide("HAIR_NOHAT")

What exactly isn't working? I have recent experience with getting night vision working on an item like this, if you're having a similar problem that I was having, try seeing if Charlie will attack your character while the night vision would be applied. There's a chance it's only taking effect on the server side, and I can help you fix that.

@TheSkylarr When I equip the headwear, the character just wears it without the night vision. Charlie still damages the character :(

That's... really weird. Are you absolutely sure the code is actually running? I sometimes accidentally load the workshop version of my mod instead of the dev version for example, which is different code.

Only reason I can think of for nightvision not working when called is if something else is CONSTANTLY forcing it back off again, but as far as I know, the only thing in the entire vanilla game that uses ForceNightVision is Woodie's transformation, which I hope you aren't using to test it lol.

Edit: I tested your code on one of my own hats from my mod, it seems to grant Night Vision correctly, so now I am ultra confused as to why it's not working for you.

@TheSkylarr I've double checked everything, I feel sillier and sillier :apathy:

I updated the whole mod here:

LeVR.rar 11.5 MB · 0 downloads

I'm taking a look right now, I'll reply again if I figure anything out.

@BillTheCipher After testing your code, the only edits I made were to enable normal characters to wear the headset, it seems to grant the nightvision correctly in the local world, and only server side in a multiplayer setting. I can help fix the problem with multiplayer, but charlie shouldn't be able to hit you if that's the case regardless.

@TheSkylarr So, if I understand it right, the headset can only provide night vision if the tag requirement is erased?

Well, I don't think it was because of that, though you could give it a try. I believe you should fully restart your game if you haven't already and give it a try in a local world, that is a world without caves set to 1 max player. If it works there, let me know, as well as check the tag requirement thing. It really shouldn't be that though.
