AutoPlacement event flows
AutoPlacement event flows are used by the AutoPlacementMgr to determine whether actors should be dynamically spawned without having to hardcode special logic into the executable.
Such event flows are executed by the same event flow engine but with a different environment: only the "AutoPlacement" pseudo-actor is available for actions and queries. Actions and queries are not mapped to AI system functions as with regular event flows, but are entirely handled by the AutoPlacement code.
A single event flow can be used to handle conditions for several actors (for example, AutoPlacement_Animal handles auto placement logic for all animal actors) and may be called several times, each time with a different actor name, which the event flow can check with the #EcoAreaActorName query. An actor will only be dynamically spawned if CreateData (and NearCreate?[check]) is called.
Allow the actor to spawn.
|MinNum||int||The smallest amount that should be generated of this actor.|
|MaxNum||int||The biggest amount that should be generated of this actor.|
|GroupRadius||float||Allows to configure the size of the auto-picked point where the actor(s) should spawn.|

Queries StatisticsMgr for the forest_density at the current position. Returns 1 if the specified rate is lower than or equal to the result, and 0 otherwise.
Queries StatisticsMgr for the route distance at the current position. Returns 1 if the specified distance is lower than or equal to the query result, and 0 otherwise.
|Distance||float||Distance to compare against route distance|
Queries the Terrain system for the grass height at the current position. Returns 1 if the specified height is lower than or equal to the actual height, and 0 otherwise.
Returns 1 if the player is riding a horse, and 0 otherwise.
Returns 1 if the specified actor name matches the name of the actor for which the event flow is being executed.
Returns the water sub-material type at the current position:
- 0: Water
- 1: Water_Ice
- 2: Water_Hot
- 3: Water_Poison
Returns 1 if the specified boolean flag is true, and 0 otherwise.
Returns -1 if the GameDataMgr instance does not exist or if the Label parameter was not specified.
|Label||str||GameData boolean flag name|
??? Involves PlacementMgr.
Queries StatisticsMgr for the water distance at the current position. Returns 1 if the specified distance is lower than or equal to the result multiplied by 200.0, and 0 otherwise.
|Distance||float||Distance to compare against water distance|
