Correct creation of conditions and values

  • #1, by red363Sunday, 14. November, 23:02 2 weeks ago
    Hello, friends.

    Can you advise how to create conditions and values methodologically correctly? I have not yet figured out in what cases and where it is more correct to create them. Because I can create for example a condition in a scene, in an object, in a character, etc. And so far I have not seen much of a difference. Is there any guidance on this topic? The same goes for variables.

    Thanks.

    I use conditions if true or false is enough, ie if a light is off or on, however if it was a door's state, locked, unlocked, closed, open, I use  numeric values
    You can do sequence puzzles with conditions but values are a lot easier to keep track of and you can tie them in with animation,, if value name =1 then the animation frame is also 1 kinda thing.

    I highly recommend creating them in the scene conditions/values tabs on the right hand side of the editor. Much easier to find & keep track of them as opposed to them being created inside of the relevant scene objects themselves.

    Thanks for the answer. Agree with you. But my question would be more about where exactly is it better to create. In a scene, in an object, in a character, etc.

    Thanks. I agree with you. Apparently there is no particular difference where to create them, it's only in the convenience of the naivgation and / or logic.
