This asset defines an entry for buttons such as switches and pressure plates.


Buttons are entity assets, so they start with their 0x54 byte header, then are followed by:

Offset Type Variable Description
0x54 AssetID modelPressedInfoID Defaults to ModelAssetID in the placeable header (same model for pressed and unpressed).
0x58 int actMethod
  • 0 = Button - Stays pressed upon being hit. (Also has a flashing effect)
  • 1 = Pressure Plate - Stays pressed until it stops being hit, then unpresses.
0x5C int initButtonState
0x60 int isReset 0 (disabled) or 1 (enabled). If this is enabled, the button will automatically unpress itself after resetDelay. (Only works on Button, not Pressure Plate.) Useful for timed challenges.
0x64 float resetDelay (seconds) Time to wait after being pressed to unpress.
