Contains the receptors and notes that are seen in gameplay. Normally seen in Player actors.

Def.NoteField through lua allows one to create extra NoteFields that aren’t bound to a Player actor.

local receptposnorm = THEME:GetMetric("Player","ReceptorArrowsYStandard")
local receptposreve = THEME:GetMetric("Player","ReceptorArrowsYReverse")
local yoffset = receptposreve-receptposnorm
local notefieldmid = (receptposnorm + receptposreve)/2
local def_dda = THEME:GetMetric("Player","DrawDistanceAfterTargetsPixels")
local def_ddb  = THEME:GetMetric("Player","DrawDistanceBeforeTargetsPixels")

	InitCommand= function(self) self:zoom(SCREEN_HEIGHT/480):Center() end,
		Player= PLAYER_1,
		NoteSkin= "Exact3D",
		DrawDistanceAfterTargetsPixels= def_dda,
		DrawDistanceBeforeTargetsPixels= def_ddb,
		YReverseOffsetPixels= yoffset,
		FieldID= 3,
		InitCommand= function(self)

In the above example, The resulting NoteField is relatively close to what a NoteField in a Player would be like. The NoteSkin chosen is “Exact3D”, while the positioning is based off of theme metrics.

Because Player is set to PLAYER_1, it will also grab the Chart that Player 1 selected and read from Player 1’s input.

Because this NoteField is not drawn by an actual Player actor, Mini won’t zoom the NoteField, and perspective modifiers will do nothing. Those will have to be replicated manually. Check How a Player Manipulates its’ NoteField for more information on how to recreate it.
