Description (last modified by Freagarach)

Currently, mirages implement the functions they mirage "bare metal", i.e. cmpMirage.GetCurrentAmount() returns the saved amount of resources for the miraged entity. That will give problems when multiple components implement the same function name.

The calling function QueryMiragedInterface in the Player.js-helper, could just as well return an object belonging to the miraged component.


  • Save the functions and values in an object, per component, in Mirage.js.
  • Change the function call to return the object instead of calling functions on cmpMirage.

While at it, I suggest more stuff:

  • Don't initialise null values (refs #5979).
  • Make the components responsible for what needs to be miraged?

Description: modified (diff)

In 25068:

Clean mirage internals.

Use a map that stores the functions instead of them being part of the Mirage component.
Means that a lot doesn't need to be inited now (refs. #5979).

In 25079:

Clean mirage internals.

Redo r25068 / rP25068. Now! with not broken serialisation :D

Use a map that stores the functions, instead of them being part of the Mirage component.
Doesn't need to initialise the variables anymore (refs. #5979).

Saves the mirages in a global to allow (de)serialisation.
Only assign values on Init, not on Construction (to allow deserialisation).

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

In 25089:

Move Mirage information to respective components.

Moves the functions that define the properties/functions to mirage to their respective components, making it easier for modders to know their existence and to modify.
