Function documentation

bool Simulator::cToolStrategy::OnSelect(cSpaceToolData* pTool) virtual

Called when the user clicks on the tool button to select it.

Parameters
pTool The space tool.

The return value is ignored.

bool Simulator::cToolStrategy::OnDeselect(cSpaceToolData* pTool) virtual

Called when the user clicks on the tool button to unselect it (that is, if the tool was previously selected and the user clicks again).

Parameters
pTool The space tool.

The return value is ignored.

The default implementation does nothing, just returns true.

bool Simulator::cToolStrategy::Update(cSpaceToolData* pTool, bool showErrors, const char16_t** ppFailText = nullptr) virtual

Called every game loop if the tool is visible, that is, if the panel that contains it is selected or if the tool is selected.

Parameters
pTool The space tool.
showErrors Whether event logs should be shown to the player or not.
ppFailText [Optional] If not null, an error text can be set so that it is shown in the tool button.
Returns Whether the tool must be enabled or not.

The return value is used to tell if the tool is available to be used or not. If the method returns false, the tool is disabled and cannot be selected. If the method returns true, the tool is enabled and can be used.

Vector3 Simulator::cToolStrategy::GetAimPoint() virtual

Returns the coordinates of the position where the tool is aiming.

Returns The coordinates of the position where the tool is aiming.

The default implementation uses the method cGameViewManager::GetWorldMousePosition(), ignoring the player UFO.

int Simulator::cToolStrategy::ProcessCost(int useCost) virtual

Function called to calculate the sporebucks cost of firing the tool.

It receives the value of the
