Default Setting Custom State

Hi ,
I wish to create my own state and description. Where do I have to define these states to assign custom description to states # 51 and over ?

Default Setting Custom State

Hi Francois,

If you look at the tree of an object and click on the ''stats" node of the object, you will see the node "state" and within you will see the "state_profile" node with all the predefined states for that object. A queue for example has 50 different states.

If you just right click on the node state_profile and insert a new node into this node you can create a new state for this object. After you have done this you will be able to chose this state when using the "setstate" command (by using the rank of the new object in the state_profile node).

Good Luck!!
