I was doing a TC of meteor about two years ago, but it all failed since i didn't realize until i was putting my campaigns together that i gave the user tons of weapons in each map, and i wanted him to loose them in the end of the level. But i didn't know how. Is there any way i can remove the weapons, maybe a "weapon removal tile"? If there is, then you can look forward to some quite good gameplay. Please reply.

(And excuse my sunky english, im a bloody swede.)

I've thought of it before, and I don't know a good solution to it, other than to give the player less weapons.
Someone might know better though.

Open your itemdefs.txt and then make it so that the weapons you want to loose will be reseted when the map changes.

Good thinking there Suomalainen, the only catch here is that you could need to create your own "copies" of all of the weapon power ups (not the actual weapons).

I think it would be nice to add an option to the map that allows it to reset all player items when it is started (an Advanced Map Properties option). Now that this has been posted here in this topic it will probably get sorted out (I look in here when adding things to the game).

Errr, perhaps a little rough but here goes...

I could help with a swedish version if you want...
I'm not the programming type though.

There is a way that may take a while but will work.. use the drop item code in a text trigger for each weapon and place them in front of the exit

Yeah this will work too but be warned that it will take you ages to type it all in and takeitem triggers are once-only in multiplayer.

See changelog.htm (in your Meteor folder) for the syntax of takeitem triggers, there is a working example in Base Delta when the hoverboard is taken away when the players enters a doorway.

James could you make a command that takes all weapons from players inventory?

Nej du, jag är ingen dalbo. Jag är smålänning placerad i östergötland.

Anyway, I can't do anything in programming, so it would be great if you could solve this thing with removing weapons. The best thing, in my opinion would be to have a certain tile, and when you walked upon it, your inventory was empty.

No one of my maps will work without a weapon removal option, so if you have a possibility to do something about this, i would be really happy and start creating more advanced maps again.

Or better yet, You should keep your weapons through out all the levels, but if you get mowed down all your weapons are left in the dust and you have to start over with your little pea shooter

I know I haven't been around, but decided to throw in the fact that if your little peashooter runs out of ammo, you should at least have a default melee weapon such as a combat knife or your fists.
