Is it possible to find a players health or if they're alive via hammer? And how would one do it?
Also, building on this, would it be possible to filter a player by percentage of health. As in, only players with >15% health can enter, as having 15% or less health might kill you?
I think you could use a math_remap for that, but you'd need one for each class since they have different health numbers. Just set the range from 0-100, and 15 would be 15 percent.
Which player? Entity I/O doesn't have the ability to track players. You get into ugly hacks if you try.
I just need the activator. It's not anything that can't be done without the macros.
can you give me a quick rundown of the outputs and inputs on that?
I've never used math_remap before and that sounds pretty interesting.
This seemingly could allow me to make some sort of market garden arena - filtering it to soldiers only, give them full health and give them a trigger_hurt for 5 damage if their health is over 97%
If that's the problem you're trying to solve, you could try to directly set player health.
According to VDC:
Sets the player's health. Values clamped between 0 and max_health.
So, trigger_multiple -> OnStartTouch -> !activator SetHealth 195 could possibly work.
