What is the purpose of this?

  • Was looking in the RTS example and found this:

    What is the purpose of ("Bases") at the end of Mouse.X and Mouse.Y, Doesn't recall haven't seen it before. And reading the rest of the code doesn't make it any clearer why and what this is used for.

    Anyone knows?

  • The addition of ("Bases") makes the x and the y based on the layer Bases..

    If you have more layers than one and the paralax or scale of those layers are different x and y values can get troublesome, for they differ between the layers.

  • "Bases" is an object. You seem to be assigning the X/Y coordinates to the location of "Bases."

    What's the URL of the RTS example?

    Ok that makes perfect sense, thanks

    "Bases" in this example isn't an object. It's the name of the layer this action should get the x and y - coordinates from.

    This only works for mouse and touch, as far as I know..
