An example of using a linedef 491.

Linedef type 491, PolyObject – Set Translucency, is a type of linedef executor which, when triggered, adjusts the translucency of a specified PolyObject.


This linedef should be given a tag corresponding to the ID of the wanted PolyObject. The translucency is set by the front texture X offset of the control linedef or, if it is 0, the floor height of the control sector. There are 11 possible levels of translucency, ranging from 0 (opaque) to 10 (invisible). If Flag [4] / Lower Unpegged is set, the translucency level is specified directly in the front X offset or floor height. Otherwise, it is specified in multiples of 100, as shown by the table below:

Value Translucency
Without Lower Unpegged With Lower Unpegged
0–99, or below 0 0 and below 0% (completely opaque)
100–199 1 10%
200–299 2 20%
300–399 3 30%
400–499 4 40%
500–599 5 50%
600–699 6 60%
700–799 7 70%
800–899 8 80%
900–999 9 90%
1000 and above 10 and above 100% (completely invisible)

Note that although 0 is a legal translucency value, if the front X offset is set to 0, the game will use the control sector floor height instead. In this case, make sure the floor height is also 0.

If Flag [8] / Peg Midtexture / Effect 3 is set, the supplied translucency value is added to the PolyObject's current translucency instead of replacing it. In this case, negative values can be used to reduce the PolyObject's translucency.
