Description (last modified by fvultier)

Waypoints are objects that help a player to find his way through a level. There should be several ways to show the player the way. A waypoint should:

  • be visible on the radar.
  • be visible in the game:
    • as marking of the waypoint position.
    • as way indicators (easy mode) from one waypoint to another.
  • Trigger an event if the player is in a certain range.
  • Maybe there are multiple types of waypoints. Such that mark a single points, other that are a volume in space, …
  • Be visible only for the player it belongs to. So it needs to have an owner
  • Waypoints should be attachable to moving objects like a allied spaceship.



  • Learn how to add new C++ classes to Orxonox
  • Write general concept on paper
  • Implement your concept in C++
  • Create a simple test level that demonstrates how to use the waypoints such that future level designers may use them
  • Write a documentation page for the Orxonox wiki
