General use haunt behavior question

Recommended Posts

So I have been toiling around with an idea as a small QoL for people that can't help but put things in their backpack.

The scenario is simple: Leaving a life giving amulet in a backpack is far from unusual, the issue arises where if a player dies and the amulet is in the backpack it is useless to them. I want to make it so when a player haunts the backpack it can drop the amulet from the backpack. I am unaware if there is a way to define this behavior over all items with the container component, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

For that you need to override the 'onhaunt' function from the hauntable component:

AddPrefabPostInit("backpack", function(inst)
	if not GLOBAL.TheWorld.ismastersim then

	if inst.components.hauntable then
		inst:RemoveComponent("hauntable") -- Remove it first to add it properly later

	AddNewOnHaunt(inst) -- Set up new hauntable

The AddNewOnHaunt:

local function AddNewOnHaunt(inst)
	inst:AddComponent("hauntable") -- Add the hauntable component

	inst.components.hauntable.onhaunt = DropRevivers -- Set up new 'onhaunt'

The DropRevivers:

local function DropRevivers(inst, doer)
	inst.components.container:DropEverythingWithTag("resurrector") -- Drop everything that has the 'resurrector' tag, so the Life Giving Amulet


Put all of this in modmain.lua and it should work.
