This plugin generates non-repeating integers within a given range, and will cycle with a given threshold to not repeat within that threshold.
If we have tag feature, it will be more useful when u use this plugin for internal loops. SmartRandom.Next("TAG")
AdvancedRandom pretty much replaces this now, so I won't be making improvements. You can add additional copies, so it's possible to handle multiples now already.
1.2 fixes the minification issue.
Ok,tnx, it works now.
There is an error when I try to export in C3 build with minification (even with your demo project):
/str/c3runtime.js:2757:4: ERROR - [JSC_REFERENCE_BEFORE_DECLARE_ERROR] Illegal variable reference before declaration: C3
2757| C3.Plugins.BHT_Smart_Random.Acts =
You would want 4 instances, with a range of 1 to 40, if you want to pull cards from each category. Then you pull 4 cards from each instance. The threshold doesn't apply as you'd want to stop at 40 cards pulled, for each deck.
ok i will try that then. Thank you!
I Tried to use the plugin to pull a card out of 40 available from 4 different categories (so total is 160 cards).
It doesnt seems to work the way I was excepting as if I just do a test with 4 cards in each category, the same card eventually come back again when I choose start:1, end:4, threshold:4 before other cards was pulled.
Should I have 4 time each the same plugin in the project (one for each category) to solve this problem?
No, I don't support that, and don't see the need to do so. Just use a function to get the next value, and if it is '8', skip it and get the next number.
What if I want to skip a number between a range
I random range is 1-15 but i don't want to 8 to be appear.
is this possible ?
if not can we have a feature like this, So we can skip some numbers from range that we don't want appear.
Thank you that was awesome and quite simple to use.
Fib, people were constantly asking how to do this. It seemed an obvious solution.
This seems great for representing something like a deck of cards, where when a card is drawn it is removed from the deck. Is that what you were going for? Or did you have another use in mind?
