Linedef type 175, Crumbling, No Respawn, Intangible from Bottom, Translucent, is a type of translucent floor over floor block which will crumble and fall one second after being jumped or stepped upon. It can be jumped through from below, but is solid to anything landing on it from above. Unlike linedef type 174, this FOF will not respawn after crumbling. It is useful for situations in which the player requires easy access to platforms from below, but should only have one attempt at getting through a certain area.

Setup

The flats, floor height, and ceiling height of the FOF are determined by the flats, floor height, and ceiling height of the control sector, and the sidedefs of the FOF's walls are determined by the sidedef of the control linedef.

The alpha value of this FOF's translucency can be changed by setting the control linedef's front side upper texture to the number symbol (#), followed by a three-digit decimal number, from 000 to 255. #000 is completely invisible, and #255 is completely opaque. Note that in the Software renderer, there are actually only eleven different distinct values: #000–#011, #012–#037, #038–#063, #064–#088, #089–#114, #115–#139, #140–#165, #166–#191, #192–#216, #217–#242, #243–#255, where #000–#011 is invisible, and #243–#255 is opaque. The advantage of using the completely opaque values is the ability to properly render flats which contain transparent pixels. If no value is set in the front side upper texture, however, the default alpha value of #128 will be used.

If the Not Climbable flag is checked, the FOF will not cast a shadow.
