Corpse health is unreadable (api problem)

Post by Danger Ross » Fri Mar 27, 2020 7:52 am

My memory is hazy but I believe IObject.GetHealth() used to return the corpse object's health after the player dies. At this moment, IObject.GetHealth() only returns the player's PlayerModifier.CurrentHealth property, so if the player is dead it always returns zero.
IObject.SetHealth() has no effect on corpse objects either.

This makes it impossible to interact with the health of a corpse object as a result.

If this is by design then take it as a suggestion to add the functionality necessary to be able to interact with corpse objects.

You can't revive dead players and dead players should return 0 health.
The GetHealth and SetHealth is IObject interfaces and the IPlayer overrides these as you're not allowed to set health directly however you want if the player is dead. The proper way to "revive" a player is to create a new IPlayer instance with the same skin.

Adding IPlayer.GetCorpseHealth(), SetCorpseHealth(float value), GetCorpseMaxHealth() to the next update (after v.1.3.5).
Gets/Sets the player's corpse health. This health starts counting once the player is dead.
Once this reaches 0 and the player takes additional damage, the player will be gibbed.
