 +====== Activation requirements (XG) ======
 +
 +An [[xg:​line_type|Line Type]] can specify several requirements that must be met for the [[activation]] or [[deactivation]] of the line to succeed. These include for instance event type, a counter (as in "line can be activated N times"​),​ activator type (player, missile, etc.) and any combination of keys possessed by the activator.
 +
 +
 +===== Requirements =====
 +
 +
 +To set the requirements for activation and deactivation within a [[line_type|Line Type]] definition, use the Flags property of the definition.
 +
 +  Flags = flaga | flagb | flagc
 +
 +Example: ​
 +
 +  Flags = mobj_gone | activator_type
 +
 +
 +==== mobj_gone ====
 +
 +The line will only be activated if there are no THINGS of a certain type with health > 0 at the time of testing. Thing type is specified using the **Thing type** flag eg:
 +  Thing type = POSSESSED
 +
 +==== no_other_use_secret ====
 +
 +Only players can activate this line if it's marked as secret.
 +
 +==== activator_type ====
 +
 +The line can only be activated by THINGS of a certain type. Thing type is specified using the **Thing type** flag eg:
 +  Thing type = POSSESSED
 +
 +
 +===== Extended requirements =====
 +
 +
 +To set the extended requirements for (De)activation within an Line Class definition use Flags2 eg:
 +
 +  Flags2 = flaga | flagb | flagc etc
 +
 +Example: ​
 +
 +  Flags2 = key1 | health_above
 +
 +
 +==== when_act ====
