Most people don't get how some switches work. Well, the new to level creation doesn't really go in deep on this subject. But the switches are easy to remember.

SW_APPEAR
Makes an object APPEAR. All you need to do is hook up a SW_DEAD of the other object to make this spawn. (For activators, like star chip collecting, it uses SW_A to trigger this.)

SW_DEAD (Known as SW_SLEEP in SMG1.)
Activates when an enemy is eliminated. Once it's eliminated, the object with the same SW_APPEAR is activated.

SW_A
An activation switch. Not like, if you kill an enemy, this appears. That's used for SW_APPEAR.

SW_A is an activation switch. It turns some switches on, like the yellow chips for an example. It's SW_A turns on when all 5 are collected, and it triggers whatever is connected to it.

SW_B
Deactivates an object. Like a cage covering up an object. If this is triggered, it either makes the object disappear, or something else that gets rid of the object it's connected to.

A cage (GlassCage) uses a SW_B. When it's activated, the cage opens. It's pretty much the best example I can give.

Any questions? You can ask below.

Just let me add that a common exception is the Question Coin, which uses SW_Dead rather than SW_A to activate switches.

Well most of this stuff can actually be found in the galaxies they exist in.

But good point.

So, Can i make any object i appear via SW_A. If i had a ground pound switch with a SW_A of 1 and i had a platform or an enemy with SW_A of 1, would it appear?

No, the platform/enemy would have a SW_APPEAR of 1.

Sorry for the bump, but I wanted to know how I would be able to make a WireCoverCage disappear after defeating about 10 UnizoLand Urchins. I can't really seem to figure it out from the tutorial.
Status: It was really, really fun, guys - thanks for the ride!

ExterminationSwitch is what you need.

Sorry for bumping an old thread but what are SW_PARAM and SW_AWAKE switches?

They're....interesting. IDR what exactly SW_PARAM is, I'd have to have a use case, but SW_AWAKE is used for stuff like making a model/object actually appear (load?) when a trigger happens.

Oh, wait, I'm getting them confused. I was thinking of SMG1's SW_SLEEP which is used in the Comet Observatory by the engine to load all the galaxies. I think SMG2 uses SW_AWAKE to do the same thing, though I'm not positive since it's been a while.

SW_AWAKE is more on the activation side, which SW_APPEAR is just...making something appear.
