Cloning layouts

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • Hi,

    I want to clone a level (a layout) in my project, so that I have two layouts with the same content.

    If I change a behavior of a sprite in one of these two layouts the cloned object will be changed too.

    So I want to make a game with many levels with the same content, but with another look.

    Thanks for any help...

    (I apologise for possible linguistic mistakes)

  • You can right click one and say copy, and to paste right click and say PASTE CLONE. Problem solved. . .

  • Well lets be clear what cloning means. When you clone an object you create a brand new object with the same pv's, behaviors, attributes, etc. This also increases the games total object count.

    Copying, and pasting on the other hand just creates another instance of that object, and does not add to your total number of objects, even if its in another layout.

    So cloning, and copying are not the same thing in the editor. However cloning a layout (right click the layout in the project tab) creates a brand new layout, with no new objects, only the existing ones from the copied layout.

    You should also be aware that objects can have more than one behavior, and most behaviors can be enabled/ disabled at the start of a layout.
