Can anyone guide me in the right direction?
What's the best way to generate a pattern like this using one square object?
Given that you want to place squares around the center tile, clockwise.
That helped. Thanks Newt!
Alternatively we can use loop with simple math
Ok. So how can I create a random sequence of blocks in different patterns each time the games starts?
you could make the code for each sequence you need and use a round(random(0,X)).
So when round(random(0,X)) = 1 you could call the code for sequence 1...
Just like what beufreecasse said and my following suggestion.
Take a look at the topic below to generate random pattern:
You just need to adjust the variable maxRoomSize to fit your needs.
Thanks. You guys are awesome! alextro that last tip is similar to what I looking for. I can work with that!!!
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
alextro, if you don't mind can you explain what the events are doing. And what if I want to generate just 10 different unique patterns?
I have an issue submitting an attachment, so take a look screenshot below.
Here you go:
Just add < RoomTile | spawn sensor > in first event and duplicate the RoomTiles in layout as much as you needed
Thanks alextro! I wish my 5th grade teachers were as helpful as you and the other people on this website!
I have another question about patterns. Say I got a screen size 4000 x 2000 and I want to use a for loop to create 20 instances of a object vertically at the center of the screen at 2000 x 1000, how can I accomplish this. Because every time I try all the object appear on the left side of the screen.
alextro maybe you help me with this.
That's would be pretty straight. You just need to set the condition that create 20 tiles on start of layout then put them into a middle of layout screen.
