Ask a Question / Re: Random switching scenes
« on: July 18, 2018, 09:39:02 pm »
Set a number attribute to the random number block between 1 and 10...
you can name the scenes 1-10
Then use the switch scene block... use the number attribute as the scene in that blcok.. then the scene will switch to a random scene named 1,2,3,.....8,9,10 ect

Or you can use
If random number attribute = 1 switch to water level  scene
Otherwise if
random number attribute = 2 switch to cave level scene ect

Looks nice!  Theres usually many ways to get the same result

That looks like it works really well. Cool! The UI also looks better just by removing unnecessary buttons.
Thank you.  I appreciate everyone's feedback.  I am almost ready to publish it.. i will fix the 2 buttons in ui menu for zoom level and map type. Weather button is done. 
2nd release will be draw on map with finger and remove ads

Pinch to zoom bugs out sometimes.. im still polishing it.. mostly showing the ui and polish ive worked on

Glad to see the progress!  Hope to see more soon

I just started using the built in labels extension for text.  Maybe you can use it to draw different text over the bubble actors... so you can make a couple of sizes of bubble.. to be used for different text message lengths... the text follows the actors as they move... if i remember correctly

I can see lots of potential for this. The sharing screen looks good. One thing I immediately thought of was the ability to quickly send an SOS to a previously defined mobile number. Maybe even automatically taking photos with all the phones cameras and sending them.

I can see lots of cool gaming possibility.

The UI for the application screen needs some refining,  but the buttons themselves relate to what they do. Would you be able to show two locations at once. For example, lets say someone shares their position, on the receiver's phone it would be good to see your own position, your friend's position, and info like distance. Obviously not as complex as Google Maps with routes etc., but just to give you an idea of where you are in relation.

I didnt see you posted!  Thank you for the ideas.  Im sure i can add some of these features.... i even have a way to do the google directions/route. ;) ill add it when i get that far and need to add it  in my maps engine.... ill need some server side things set up.. but sharing location (in game) is a step im half way through.. i have real life movement transpose your player  in game.. close anyway.. when its done.. i want to show your friends placement on your map also.. as they walk around

I made a little google map style layer menu button.. itll open up the  menu.. ill mimic maps a little with the layout.. got rid of zoom buttons... ... ...
And now!  Some pinch to zoom!

The idea is great. I'd definitely use it and, in fact, can think of plenty of times where I wish I'd had something like this. Trying to meet up with multiple people in a large, crowded area for example. I think there's a lot of potential.

The UI looks amateurish TBH. Not that I'm an expert in that area, so take my opinion with a grain of salt, but I think giving the UI an appearance similar to the existing Android UI would help the app feel more 'integrated' with the rest of the phone: slightly smaller buttons, slightly thinner font, flat color with thin shadow, and higher contrast. I think the contrast is the most important part since the backgrounds (the maps) are going to be busy.
Thank you for the feedback.. i agree it looks amateurish!  Thats mostly the reason ive posted about it now...  i have been trying to think of the best way to make it look better haha. Before stencyl i was limited to my xml knowledge and live wallpaper settings are pretty simplistic haha.. at least when i was making them..

Higher contrast?  Explain a little?

I am glad you like how it works.
In my opinion, the utility of the built-in Labels extension is underestimated. It is really useful and necessary in many cases. It would be very complicated to perform certain tasks without this extension. I even think it should include more blocks to set other paragraph parameters, such as the line spacing.
I agree! No clue why i have never seen these blocks before!  Maybe someone can expand on them  eventuly
