hey everybody, i need some help with an idea that i have, and me being more of the artist type with little programming behind me. i am having a hell of a time trying to figure out how to code things. this is what i want to do.
im pretty sure all of you have seen the physics sand fall game right? well i have an idea around the basic structure of that.
i want there to be a menu of all the elements and be able to select which element the mouse is using. for example
i have a fire sprite. i want this fire sprite to be selectable from a menu, allow the mouse click to create the sprite at the point of the mouse. i want physics and collision, with other elements and i want certain outcomes from certain elements colliding.
right now i have it so that a sprite can be created with a mouse click, but it can only do one element, so i dont know how to tell it to select another element. im going to have alot of elements, which i know will complicate things, but for right now im just trying to get some of the basics down.
so i want the mouse to control pretty much everything, i want to be able to create some sort of menu to select different elements, i want the mouse to realize which element is selected. and i want to be able to set up elements to interact with each other.
ex. when fire and water meet, they create steam.
if anyone knows more about coding in construct i would greatly appreciate your help.
