ObjectEdit needs to be splitted up

Priority: normal Milestone: 0.3.7

Severity: normal Keywords: refactoring, plugin, object, ObjectEdit, animation viewer, instance, highlight

Blocking: Time planned:
Time remaining: Time spent:


The ObjectEdit? plugin is too bloated ATM. It should be split up into several minor plugins like:

  • highlight selected instance(s)
  • animation viewer
  • instance editor (e.g. instance id; NOTE: most of instance properties have to be stored / organised by the clients game data structure, so we only provide a mini plugin here)
  • object editor (e.g. blocking properties)

(In [3917]) - refactored ObjectEdit?

  • removed AnimationViewer? component
  • added new cell cost & cost id property (not loaded by trunk/ loaders)
  • added cellstackposition property (not loaded by trunk/ loaders)
  • plugin now also saves it's docking status in the editor settings file
  • objects selected in the ObjectSelector? now also update the ObjectEdit? plugin
  • removed all instance related options
  • the plugin does however use the selected instance (if present) to show e.g. selected actions or rotations (not working for animated instances yet, as those need a facing location and don't react on instance.setRotation())
  • image offset of animated objects can now be editted - the plugin applies the new offset to all animation frames
  • saving animation image offsets does not work however (we need to migrate to new XML structure first)
  • small fix for InstanceHighlighter? (deselects previous highlighted instances on new selections)
  • small fix for ObjectSelector? - moved signal for onObjectSelector elsewhere (!= to Elsweyr ;-))
  • adjusted XMLObjectSaver to also save new object properties
