bounce/jump pad question

I'm trying to create a jump pad for my latest map, and I can't seem to get it to function how I like.

I have a cylindrical brush textured with tools/trigger, and tied to a trigger_push.

The brush is the full height of the jump I'd like the player to make.
push direction is "up" and push force is 1000u/s
Technically, it works, but not how I expect it to. I would like it to function like the pads at the entrances to the bases in ff_aardvark, where you touch it and you're off. At the moment, it requires a jump to get going, like the fan shaft in ff_bases. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks.

You could use SetVelocity rather than a trigger_push for precision pushing.

Code:
------------------------------------------
-- jump triggers
------------------------------------------
base_jump = trigger_ff_script:new({ pushx = 0, pushy = 0, pushz = 0 })

-- push people when they touch the trigger
function base_jump:ontouch( trigger_entity )
	if IsPlayer( trigger_entity ) then
		local player = CastToPlayer( trigger_entity )
		
		player:SetVelocity( Vector( self.pushx, self.pushy, self.pushz ) )
	end
end

-- up push
jump_up = base_jump:new({ pushx = 0, pushy = 0, pushz = 1000 })
You could alter it to make it work similarily to a trigger_push as well, or just put one of these at the very bottom and lower the push so that it just gets you off the ground and then the trigger_push takes over.

Used a func_door to raise my person off the ground, at which point the push takes over!

Put it slightly below ground.
The player will drop onto it at which point they will get "pushed" in the direction you want.

What if.....

What if I wanted to add a sound to this so everytime I hit the jumppad it creates the sound?

I would like to use the sound Doors.Move14 which I think comes from hl-2.

Would it work if In the trigger I just put this: or does it need precached?

base_jump = trigger_ff_script:new({ pushx = 0, pushy = 0, pushz = 0, touchsound = "Doors.Move14", })

It'd probably need to be precached and it'd need a line in base_jump:ontouch to actually play the sound. But, you're most likely better off using an ambient_generic entity in the map and then making it play the sound with Lua using OutputEvent, though, as BroadCastSound plays the sound universally and doesn't factor in a player's distance from the event itself.

To play an ambient generic from Lua, use:

Code:
OutputEvent( "entity_name", "PlaySound" )
To add this to the trigger code while making it easy to have jump triggers with different sounds, you would do this:
Code:
------------------------------------------
-- jump triggers
------------------------------------------
base_jump = trigger_ff_script:new({ pushx = 0, pushy = 0, pushz = 0, sound_entname="base_jump_sound" })

-- push people when they touch the trigger
function base_jump:ontouch( trigger_entity )
	if IsPlayer( trigger_entity ) then
		local player = CastToPlayer( trigger_entity )
		
		player:SetVelocity( Vector( self.pushx, self.pushy, self.pushz ) )
		OutputEvent( self.sound_entname, "PlaySound" )
	end
end

-- up push
jump_up = base_jump:new({ pushx = 0, pushy = 0, pushz = 1000, sound_entname="jump_up_sound" })
jump_up_alt = base_jump:new({ pushx = 0, pushy = 0, pushz = 1000, sound_entname="jump_up_sound2"})
