List of SE1 entities


<SiN Episodes: Emergence> This is a point entity available in Sin Episodes. This entity is the developer's gateway to set up traps and obstacles that depend on the challenge level built around the Dynamic Difficulty System, where the initial challenge level is that chosen upon the start of the map (0.2/1.0 default) and the current challenge is what it has dynamically changed to depending on the skill of the player, with the challenge difference being the amount the player has moved the challenge level from the initial level to the current one. For more information about how to set up an envionment challenge depending on the initial challenge level, see the Arena Mode Challenge tutorial page.
