Random pick from family or animation

  • Let's say i have 4 diffent sq's: red, blue, green, yellow. I want to randomly spawn 2 of those sq's of different colors. When each one is destroyed i want to randomly spawn 2 more.

    Is it better to randomly choose those sq's from a family, or from an animatimation?

    Also, are creating families only used to simplify creating events for those same kind of sprites?

    Thanks for any input.

    you can easily do it either way...

    with animations, create the object, and then Set Animation to: Choose("red", "blue", "green", "yellow")

    (assuming those are the names of the animations obviously)

    if you put 4 different objects in a family, then Create family object will randomly choose one of the types for you.

    So, if the objects are vastly different from each other - with lots of different properties, then the family way is easier.

    But it they are mostly the same, except for the animation, then that way works fine too.
