== Functions for creating gears ==

=== <tt>!AddGear(x, y, gearType, state, dx, dy, timer)</tt> ===

<blockquote>This creates a new gear at position x,y (measured from top left) of kind gearType (see [GearTypes Gear Types]). The initial velocities are dx and dy. All arguments are numbers. The function returns the uid of the gear created.
</blockquote>
Example:

<code lang="lua">    local gear = !AddGear(0, 0, gtTarget, 0, 0, 0, 0)
    !FindPlace(gear, true, 0, LAND_WIDTH)</code>

=== <tt>!AddVisualGear(x, y, viusalGearType, state, critical)</tt> ===

<blockquote>This creates a new visual gear at position x,y (measured from top left) of kind visualGearType (see [VisualGearTypes Visual Gear Types]).  The function returns the uid of the visual gear created.  Set critical to true if the visual gear is crucial to game play.  False if it is just an effect, and can be skipped when in fastforward (such as when joining a room).  A critical visual gear will always be created, a non-critical one may fail.  Most visual gears delete themselves. 
</blockquote>
Example:

<code lang="lua">  -- adds an non-critical explosion at position 1000,1000. Returns 0 if it was not created.
    vgear = !AddVisualGear(1000, 1000, vgtExplosion, 0, false) 
</code>

=== <tt>!SpawnHealthCrate(x, y)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Spawns a health crate at the specified position.
</blockquote>
=== <tt>!SpawnAmmoCrate(x, y, ammoType)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Spawns an ammo crate at the specified position with content of ammoType (see [AmmoTypes Ammo Types]). Because by default settings the number of ammo in crates is zero it has to be increased to at least one with SetAmmo first, see the example:
</blockquote>
Example:

<code lang="lua">    !SetAmmo(amGrenade, 0, 0, 0, 1) -- see below
    !SpawnAmmoCrate(0, 0, amGrenade) -- x=y=0 means random position on map</code>
=== <tt>!SpawnUtilityCrate(x, y, ammoType)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Spawns an utility crate at specified position with content of ammoType.
</blockquote>
Example:

<code lang="lua">    !SetAmmo(amLaserSight, 0, 0, 0, 1)
    !SpawnUtilityCrate(0, 0, amLaserSight)</code>
=== <tt>!AddTeam(teamname, color, grave, fort, voicepack, flag)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Adds a new team. Note that this can only be done in onGameInit(), not at a later time. First argument is the team name followed by color, grave, fort, voicepack and flag settings.
</blockquote>
Notice: This works only for singleplayer's training missions for now and will desync multiplayer games. Flag setting is dev only.

Example:

<code lang="lua">    !AddTeam("team 1", 14483456, "Simple", "Island", "Default", "hedgewars")</code>
=== <tt>!AddHog(hogname, botlevel, health, hat)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Adds a new hedgehog for current team (last created one), with botlevel and specified health also head.
</blockquote>
Notice: This works only for singleplayers training missions for now and will desync multiplayer games.

Example:

<code lang="lua">    local player = !AddHog("HH 1", 0, 100, "!NoHat") -- botlevel 0 means human player
    !SetGearPosition(player, 1500, 1000)</code>
== Functions to get gear properties ==

=== <tt>!GetGearVelocity(gearUid)</tt> ===

<blockquote>returns tuple of dx,dy values for the specified gear
</blockquote>
=== <tt>!GetGearElasticity(gearUid) </tt> ===

<blockquote>Returns the elasticity of the specified gear. Useful for determining if a hog is on a rope or not. If a hog is attached to a rope, or is busy firing one, the elasticity of the rope will be non-zero.
</blockquote>
=== <tt>!GetHogClan(gearUid)</tt> ===

<blockquote>returns the clan id of the specified hedgehog gear

</blockquote>
=== <tt>!GetGearTarget(gearUid, x, y)  (0.9.16)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Returns the x and y coordinate of target-based weapons/utilities. <b> Note: </b>: This can't be used in onGearAdd() but must be called after gear creation. 
</blockquote>
=== <tt>GetX(gearUid)</tt> ===

<blockquote>returns x coordinate of the gear
</blockquote>
=== <tt>GetY(gearUid)</tt> ===

<blockquote>returns y coordinate of the gear
</blockquote>
=== <tt>!GetState(gearUid)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Returns the uid of the gear that is currently being followed.
</blockquote>
=== <tt>!GetTimer(gearUid)</tt> ===

<blockquote>returns the timer of the gear. This is for example the time it takes for watermelon, mine, etc. to explode. This is also the time used to specify the blowtorch or rcplane time.
</blockquote>
=== <tt>!GetHealth(gearUid)</tt> ===

<blockquote>returns the health of the gear
</blockquote>
=== <tt>!GetHogLevel(gearUid)</tt> ===

<blockquote>returns the bot level from 0 to 5. 0 means human player.
</blockquote>

=== <tt>!GetVisualGearValues(vgUid)</tt> ===

<blockquote>This returns the typically set visual gear values, useful if manipulating things like smoke or bubbles or circles.  It returns the following values:
X, Y, dX, dY, Angle, Frame, FrameTicks, State, Timer, Tint 
X, Y typically position, dX, dY typically speed, Angle is usually the rotation angle, Frame is typically the animation frame, FrameTicks is usually an animation counter.  State can have a variety of values, but is typically bit packed, Timer is usually the gear lifetime and Tint is the colour.
Most visual gears require little to no modification of parameters.
</blockquote>
Example:

<code lang="lua">    !GetVisualGearValues(vgUid) -- return visual gear values
</code>

== Functions to modify gears ==

=== <tt>!DeleteGear(gearUid)</tt> ===

Example:

<code lang="lua">    gear = !AddGear(...)
    !DeleteGear(gear) -- Delete the newly created gear.</code>

=== <tt>!DeleteVisualGear(vgUid)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Deletes a Visual Gear.  Note, most visual gears delete themselves.</blockquote>
Example:

<code lang="lua">    vgear = !AddVisualGear(...)
    !DeleteVisualGear(vgear) -- Delete the newly created visual gear.</code>


=== <tt>!SetVisualGearValues(vgUid, X, Y, dX, dY, Angle, Frame, FrameTicks, State, Timer, Tint)</tt> ===

<blockquote>This allows manipulation of many of the visual gear values.  Calling GetVisualGearValues first is recommended on most visual gears unless you are controlling all the key values.  In the case of vgtCircle, the visual gear values are mapped as follows.  X, Y: position.  State: radius. Timer: Thickness.  FrameTicks: pulsation speed (0 to disable).  dX, dY: min/max pulsation opacity (0-255). Tint: colour, RGBA.
Most visual gears require little to no modification of parameters.
</blockquote>
Example:

<code lang="lua">  -- set a circle to position 1000,1000 pulsing from opacity 20 to 200 (8%-78%), radius of 50, 3px thickness, bright red.
    !SetVisualGearValues(circleUid, 1000,1000, 20, 200, 0, 0, 100, 50, 3, 0xff0000ff)
</code>

=== <tt>!FindPlace(gearUid, fall, left, right, tryHarder) (0.9.16)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Finds a place for the specified gear between x=left and x=right and places it there. 0.9.16 adds an optional fifth parameter, tryHarder. Setting to true/false will determine whether the engine attempts to make additional passes, even attempting to place gears on top of each other.
</blockquote>
Example:

<code lang="lua">    gear = !AddGear(...)
    !FindPlace(gear, true, 0, LAND_WIDTH) -- places the gear randomly between 0 and LAND_WIDTH</code>
=== <tt>!HogSay(gearUid, text, manner)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Makes the specified gear say, think, or shout some text in a bubble.
</blockquote>
Example:

<code lang="lua">    !HogSay(!CurrentHedgehog, "I wonder what to do...", SAY_THINK) -- thought bubble with text
    !HogSay(!CurrentHedgehog, "I'm hungry...", SAY_SAY) -- speech bubble with text
    !HogSay(!CurrentHedgehog, "I smell CAKE!", SAY_SHOUT) -- exclamatory bubble with text
</code>
=== <tt>!HogTurnLeft(gearUid, boolean)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Faces the specified hog left or right.
</blockquote>
Example:

<code lang="lua">    !HogTurnLeft(!CurrentHedgehog, true) -- turns !CurrentHedgehog left 
    !HogTurnLeft(!CurrentHedgehog, false) -- turns !CurrentHedgehog right</code>
=== <tt>!SetGearPosition(gearUid, x, y)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Places the specified gear exactly at the position (x,y).
</blockquote>
=== <tt>!SetGearVelocity(gearUid, dx, dy)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Gives the specified gear the velocity of dx, dy.
</blockquote>
=== <tt>!SetAmmo(ammoType, count, probability, delay, numberInCrate)</tt> ===

<blockquote>This updates the settings for a specified [AmmoTypes Ammo Type] as of count available for players, spawn probability, availability delay in turns, and the number available in crates. This is supposed to be used in the onAmmoStoreInit() event handler.
</blockquote>
Example:

<code lang="lua">    !SetAmmo(amShotgun, 9, 0, 0, 0) -- unlimited amount of shotgun ammo for players
    !SetAmmo(amGrenade, 0, 0, 0, 3) -- crates should contain always three grenade</code>
=== <tt>!AddAmmo(gearUid, ammoType, ammoCount) (0.9.16) </tt> ===

<blockquote>Adds ammoType to the specified gear. The amount added is determined by the arguments passed via !SetAmmo() in the onAmmoStoreInit() event handler. In 0.9.16 ammo can be set directly via the optional third parameter, ammoCount. A value of 0 will remove the weapon, a value of 100 will give infinite ammo.

*Note:* The effectiveness of this function may be limited due to problems with gfPerHogAmmo in lua scripting.

</blockquote>
=== <tt>!SetHealth(gearUid, health)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Sets the health of the specified gear.
This can be used for purposes other than killing hedgehogs.

For example:

  * Starting the RC Plane 10 shots
  * Starting Flying Saucer (gtJetpack) with only 50% fuel.
  * Setting all the mines to duds.
  * (And more!)

<code lang="lua">    function onGearAdd(gear)
       if (!GetGearType(gear) == gtRCPlaane) then
            !SetHealth(gear, 10)
       end
       if (!GetGearType(gear) == gtJetpack) then
            !SetHealth(gear, 1000)
       end
       if (!GetGearType(gear) == gtMine) then
            !SetHealth(gear, 0)
       end
    end</code>



</blockquote>
=== <tt>!SetEffect(gearUid, effect, true/false)</tt> ===

<blockquote>Enables (true) or disables (false) one of the effects <tt>heInvulnerable, heResurrectable, hePoisoned</tt> for the specified hedgehog gear.
</blockquote>
Example: (sets all bots poisoned)

<code lang="lua">    function onGearAdd(gear)
        if (!GetGearType(gear) == gtHedgehog) and (!GetBotLevel(gear) > 0) then
            !SetEffect(gear, hePoisoned, true)
        end
    end</code>

=== <tt>CopyPV(gearUid, gearUid)</tt> ===

<blockquote>This sets the position and velocity of the second gear to the first one.
</blockquote>
=== <tt>CopyPV2(gearUid, gearUid)</tt> (deprecated) ===

<blockquote>This sets the position of the second gear to that of the first one, but makes its velocity twice the one of the first.
