[[{{{image}}}|link=]] Note: All effects have their own duration.

Syntax

effect createEffect ( string name, float x, float y, float z [, float rX, float rY, float rZ, float drawDistance = 0, soundEnable = false ] )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: Effect(...)

Required Arguments

  • name: A string contains effect name.
  • x: A floating point number representing the X coordinate on the map.
  • y: A floating point number representing the Y coordinate on the map.
  • z: A floating point number representing the Z coordinate on the map.

Optional Arguments

NOTE: When using optional arguments, you might need to supply all arguments before the one you wish to use. For more information on optional arguments, see optional arguments.

  • rX: A floating point number representing the rotation about the X axis in degrees.
  • rY: A floating point number representing the rotation about the Y axis in degrees.
  • rZ: A floating point number representing the rotation about the Z axis in degrees.
  • drawDistance: A floating point number between 1 and 8191 which represents the draw distance of the effect, or 0 to use the default draw distance.
  • soundEnable: to enable the sound of the effect.

Returns

Returns the effect element if creation was successful, false otherwise.
