Contextual Filtering

Some devices are affected by a feature called contextual filtering. This feature hides or displays options depending on the values selected for certain related options. This feature will reduce clutter in the Customize panel and make options easier to manage and navigate. However it may not be easy to recognize which options or values trigger contextual filtering. To help you identify them, our device docs use italic for any values that trigger contextual filtering. All options will be listed, including those affected by contextual filtering; if they are hidden or displayed based on a specific option's value, there will be a note about that in the Description field for that option.

Device Options

This device has some basic functionality, like whether the fire can be lit and extinguished, and the size of the healing zone. Additionally, there are some advanced options, like how much wood the campfire can hold, and what teams or classes are affected by the campfire.

You can configure this device with the following options.

Channels

When one device needs to "talk" to another device, it does so by transmitting a signal on a specific channel. The receiving device needs to be set up to receive the signal on the same channel.

A channel is identified by a number, and channel numbers are customized for a device under the option that uses the channel. Most devices will also pass the identity of the player who triggered the device with the signal.

This device has receivers that perform a variety of functions when receiving a signal over a channel. Also, this device can transmit signals when certain conditions are met.

Receivers

Receivers listen for a channel and perform an action when they hear any device (including themselves) send a signal on that channel.
