2. Is there a trick to triggering the wormhole animation?
3. On the station, would it be possible to add the transporter pad in OPS as a "doorway" for advancing to the next map? Perhaps this is possible but I've not figured it out, in which case advice will be welcome.
Thanks in advance.
1. I'm not sure how well it's working at the moment, but play the ds9 map in preview mode, fly your ship to the location of the wormhole and type /loc in the chat box. That should give you the coordinates. The Y isn't reliable from my experience.
2. It's random. I don't think that you can do anything to trigger or control it. You might be able to build a wormhole of your own and trigger it, if you can find the right combo of effects and objects.
3. Put an invis object 10x10 and make the last objective on the map to interact with that object. Once done, it will trigger a map transition if there is a next objective that happens on a different map.
Edit: sorry #3 is wrong if your using the Cryptic doors. You can't add anything to them. There is a custom ds9 map that you could use instead, but I don't think Ops is on it.
I hope these answers help.
