Anyone know of any links or tutorials on how to do secret doors?

...and don't tell me it's a secret :orc bash:

Mahalos!

Cool beans!! I just found this also ;)

12.9.1 ...make the Secret Object Triggers work

1) Draw the trigger that is named appropriately for the kind of secret door you wish to create. Do not forget that a search skill check will be made when a player enters the trigger, so when you draw the boundaries of the trigger you should take into consideration that they should not be too wide (a player shouldn’t be able to spot a secret door while they do not even see the wall on which the door will appear) or too narrow.

2) Give a unique tag to your trigger.

3) Place a waypoint object on the location where you want the secret door to be revealed. Change the tag of this waypoint to LOC_<tag of the secret door trigger>.

4) If the secret object involves some kind of transportation (i.e. a door, a portal, a trap door, etc.), place another waypoint object on the location where the secret door leads. Change the tag of this waypoint for DST_<tag of the secret door trigger>.

5) Adjust the “Key Tag” property, in the advanced properties of your trigger, to the appropriate
difficulty check roll you


:?: Hey did you get a chance to check out the alpha?

There is also a House of Doors demo mod that I think was included with SoU
