     - Now you need to make the area the player will run into that causes the door to slam. Where you put it depends on how far you want the player to be thrown. For mine, the distance between the script area and the door is about the width of the cabinet_nice or cabinet_simple. Make this area rather large to be certain the player will collide with it.

-===== Scare 2 - Flying Jesus ===== 
  
 +===== Scare 2 - Exploding Pots =====
  
-Requested by Datguy5! Check out his profile on FG! [[http://​www.frictionalgames.com/​forum/​user-18514.html|http://​www.frictionalgames.com/​forum/​user-18514.html]] ​ 
  
 +This scare is an unexpected one. I warn anyone who wants to use this scare to NOT over-use it. It's great to use when there is peaceful music and everything seems so perfect.. and then a pot explodes, dramatically changing the music to that of a nervous feeling. I won't be showing you guys how to get the music, only how to make the pot explode. The rest is up to you.<​nowiki>​%%</​nowiki></​nowiki>​%%*%%%%</​nowiki>​WARNING:​ THIS SCARE AS ONLY BEEN TESTED WITH VASE_01 AND VASE_02 FOUND IN ENTITIES>​CONTAINER<​nowiki>​*</​nowiki>​
  
-For the famous and most crap-your-pants scare called "​Flying Jesus",​ you'll need an area and a male corpse. 
  
 +First things first: grab yourself a pot. I'll be using vase_01 found under entities>​container. You can experiment with different ceramics, but only things Daniel can pick up, throw, and break will work. Place your chosen ceramic on a surface if you'd like. I'll just put mine on a small table. Re-name your 'pot grenade'​ to whatever you'd like. I'm naming mine **pot_explode**.
  
-    - Pick yourself ​nice location for the script area. One of the best spots is in a long corridor. Keep in mind the script area is for, when the player hits it, the "​Jesus"​ will fly down the corridor. So don'​t ​think he'll spawn there for something. Make sure you extend that sucker out to each end of the wall. There are some scared Players that try and sneak past the script areas. ​Re-name ​your Script AreaFor this example, ​I'll name mine **FlyingJesus_1**. No pun intended. Don't forget ​to hit ENTER+ 
-    - Now the best way to do thisand get it right, is to have the corpse spawn and then add a prop forceIf the corpse is already activehe'll be lying on the ground in a heap and when the prop force is added he might just slide on the floorHowever if you think that's scary you can try that one too. Place your flying Jesus man a decent ways down the corridorfrom the Script AreaThe length of about 2 or walls is goodAim his face toward ​the direction ​the Player will comeSet him unactive and re-name him! I'll rename mine **Jesus_1**. (Don't forgetwhen you place him, to make him floating somewhat in the air to be sure he'll hit the playerSee [[http://​www.mediafire.com/​i/?​49ps9q6p6j096dg|Picture 1]].) +Next, make a script area. It shouldn'​t ​be too far away from the exploding pot. Make sure it's big/tall enough so the player will collide with it! Re-name ​it as well. I named mine **explode_scare**. Now it's already time to script
-    - Now we can scriptOpen your maps' .hps.+<code actionscript>​void OnStart()

 +AddEntityCollideCallback("​Player"​"​explode_scare"​"​Explode",​ true, 1);

 + 
 + 
 +The script ​is very self-explanatoryYou collide with the script area, and the health of the pot goes to 0, causing it to explodeFeel free to add some smoke particles or other 
 +

 +Good luck 
 + 
 +===== Scare - Falling Objects ===== 
 + 
 + 
 +This one in particular ​is a great unexpected scare as wellJust a simple "box slides off of the top shelf and hits you in the head" scareThis is also not a complicated scarethough if you wish to make it complicated feel free to add health damage when the box collides with Daniel'​s head. I'd also like to mention I used a specific box for this one: storage_box_wood01 found under Entities>​Storage. You can experiment with different objects or boxes, but be sure they aren't static and Daniel can easily pick them up and toss them
 + 
 + 
 +First get a box. As mentioned, I'm using storage_box_wood01 which I re-named to **box_1**. ​Now we need a shelfAny shelf will do really, but I'm using shelf02 found under Entites>​StorageThe shelf does not need to be re-named as it's only purpose is to hold the box.
  
  
 +Place your box ontop of the shelf. The very very top is the preferred place, but if you use smaller objects like pots, it can go on any shelf. Just be sure it fits right. Because the shelf I chose has a back, the box had to be placed slightly hanging off the edge of the shelf. This is perfectly fine to do, just make sure the box doesn'​t slide off before we add a prop force. Last thing we need is a script area. Because I want the Player to notice the box, I've placed my script area about a foot away from the actual shelf. If you place the script area right below the box, the box may not fall in time and scare the player, but confuse them. However you can place the script area wherever you'd like. I've re-named mine **box_fall**. Time for scripting!

 </​code>​ </​code>​
  
  
-I added the scary Iron Maiden sound to play when the corpse hit the Script Area. It adds a scarier jump effect, but it'​s ​optional of course. For the AddPropForce,​ you may have to tweak it. For me, 30000 was perfect, ​and whether ​it goes in X, Y, or Z depends on your map. For me it was Z. Here's one way to find out: Select a wall or object in the room. Click the + or - button under Position for X, Y, and Z and note which way the object goes. If it goes in the direction of the Script Area(let's say it's X) then you put the 30000 under X.+Quite a few of you were confused on the prop force last time, by just copying what my script says. You NEED to check which way the object needs to go! For some it'​s ​and for others ​it will be X. It all depends on where you started on the map and the direction the shelf facesTo see how to find which variable to useplease refer back to my Flying Jesus scare.
  
  
-Enjoy making your players freak out and pee their pants. :]+The script here is rather self-explanatory. The Player collides with the script area, it triggers the prop force, the box falls. Super easy! I also didn't add pictures for this one as I figured it wouldn'​t be too difficult to figure ​out. Though if you need a picture reference I will add some. 
 + 
 +===== Scare 4 - Kill The Lights ===== 
 + 
 + 
 +This scare was requested by [[http://​www.frictionalgames.com/​forum/​user-15795.html|BrooksyFC]]. Check him out on Frictional Games! 
 + 
 + 
 +BrooksyFC was inspired by the ending of Penumbra: Overture ​and asked me to re-create this scareAll of the lights in a long corridor go out, one by one. Today I'll be showing you using **6** **wall candles**, but feel free to use more or less; even a different lamp will do. 
 + 
 + 
 +As usualwe set up the script areas/lamps first. Place as many lamps as you'd like in a long corridor. (Please note: the more lamps you use, the longer the script will be!) Re-name the lamps something simple, like **lamp_1, lamp_2, lamp_3, lamp_4, ** etc. [TIP: NAME THE LAMPS IN THE NUMBER ORDER YOU WANT THEM TO GO OUT. I FIND IT MUCH EASIER!Now, throw down a Script Area. I've named mine **KillTheLights**. 
 + 
 + 
 +Script time!

 + 
 +<code actionscript>​void OnStart() 
 +
 +AddEntityCollideCallback("​Player",​ "​KillTheLights",​ "​LightsOut",​ true, 1);

 +}  
 +  
 +  
 +void OnEnter() 
 +
 +
 +  
 +  
 +void OnLeave() 
 +
 +</​code>​
  
  
-More pictures!+This script is only good for **6 lamps**. If you have more, the easiest way is to copy/paste a void Out# section and just adjust it. When you reach your last desired lamp, delete the last Timer. It's your last one, so you don't need another timer.
