    Increase custom FOV range

    Is there a reason the FOV range is capped at 30-90? can we extend this, id like to be able to zoom in more with the camera? Think weapon scopes, telescopes etc
  2. with the new ability to rotate objects that are placed down there is an overlap of keybinds. When editing a group with control+g (I believe this is the default keybind) the whole group rotates on the x-axis ('g' axis). The rotate action should just not happen when ctrl is pressed EDIT: even if that's not the default keybinds pressing down ctrl, shift should stop other actions from happening. So players can change there keybinds to what they prefer. Not sure if that made sense so Example. ctrl+N should not perform the action linked to N but only the action linked to ctrl+N

    Creators Competition Season 2 - WINNERS

    Wooohooo! So happy to see all my work was worth it! I would to take a moment to thank a few, starting with the IF Statement, my entry would be incomparable without it (😏). Next, I should thank rune isa, iron rod and blank sign I used them like everywhere. Lastly, I want to thank Peanut Butter Sandwich for fueling my late night work. But in all seriousness thank you ylands team/Bi for the opportunity and @Fompster for helping to playtest. Congratulations to everyone else, I'm going to have to stick my nose in explore to check out the other entries.

    Dev Diary #203 Oh ship!

    As far as I understand welds: they only decrease the amount of hitboxes, while this helps a lot, each entity still needs to be processed at the very least visually.

    Hmmm, I assumed you could but I just checked now and you are correct, it is not possible 😣 my solution will not work then😅

    @F.hao It should be possible to modify this second solution to be able to spawn as many as you need (like your original ycomp). (I thought you could how it is as I sent it, but now you said stuff that reminds me you can't). to modify it, You can spawn a separate entity reference point and rotation animator for each demon ball. If you are going to have many balls I recommend using an entity storage game logic to keep all the instructions and variables for the demon balls in. Let me know if I can help further

    @Mello1223 posted after I saw this but before I worked it out. To prove his point here is my solution. I made use of groups in mine so you will not be able to spawn new ones. However seeing as there is a player limit in ylands games it is easy enough to create eg 8 copies, and assign them to different players as needed or store them when not in use. Using groups is probably the 'intended way' to solve the problem imo. DAMENTEST_F.HAO.zip As I was writing this I had a thought and came up with yet another solution. this one doesn't use groups so you can spawn the same way you are currently. The key thing to note is that you need to have your rotation animator rotating around a reference point, then you can rotate that reference point the same as the body. Also it is possible to do the flying animation with just 1 rotation animator. DAMENTEST_F.HAO_V2.zip @Mello1223 I had a quick look at yours, it is possible to solve problem without using loops, and I think its better to avoid those when possible.

    BTH laser measure tool

    BTH Building aids main page Video Tutorial Overview The Broccoli Tree House laser measuring tools enable you to measure the exact size of entities and the distance between 2 surfaces. They also work with terrain. Set up the Tools Inwards Measure Create a copy of the inwards laser measure. Position and scale it so that whatever you want to measure in between it. Ensure that there is nothing else inside the 'laser beam'. Good: Bad: Outwards Measure Create a copy of the outwards laser measure. Position and scale it between to surfaces that you want to measure the distance between. Ensure that the 'laser beam' passes through both surfaces. Good: Bad: Measure Instructions found under Laser measure. Paramaters (name - type - info) Laser measure - game logic - outwards/inwards laser measure trigger zone Returns the distance Description Returns the distance depending on which measure type was used Paramaters (name - type - info) Laser measure - game logic - outwards/inwards laser measure trigger zone Returns the distance Description Returns the distance depending on which measure type was used, and then deletes the trigger zone.

    BTH Custom Groups

    BTH Building aids main page. This tutorial is going to show how to use BTH custom groups. Script downloads can be found on the main page. Video version (I missed a few things in the video😅) Custom Group Vs Groups Vs Welds BTH custom groups are a mixture of group and weld features. The property of being able to create copies at runtime and that the entities are separate is the whole point of the custom groups. It enables you to for example. spawn a building but still be able to destroy separate entities. Or more importantly, for our case is that we can generate structures (with script) out of groups at run time and create compositions out of these. Create a custom group Step 1 Duplicate the Custom Group Template - Entity label game logic. Alternatively create a new entity label and add the following script: Step 2 Position and Orientate the label as if it were a group pivot on the entities you want to make a group with. NOTE: if you entities are grouped make sure it is just one group and that you add the Entity label to the group. Step 3 Select add all the entities to the label. I recommend dragging to select everything, deselect the label, click the eye dropper as shown below and choose the entity label with it. Thats it, you are done. Using the custom Group Custom group instructions are found under 'Custom Group' Paramaters (name - type - info) Custom Group - game logic - entity label for your group position/rotation - vector3 - pos/rot to set group to Description Sets the position/rotation of the custom group Paramaters (name - type - info) Custom Group - game logic - entity label for your group ref point - game logic - ref point to spawn the group at interaction - boolean - at true it will use entity default interactions, at false it will disable all entity interactions Returns Entity label game logic Description Spawns a new copy of a custom group at the position and rotation of the ref point. Paramaters (name - type - info) Custom Group - game logic - entity label for your group position - Vector3 - position to spawn new group in rotation - Vector3 - rotation to spawn new group in interaction - boolean - at true it will use entity default interactions, at false it will disable all entity interactions Returns Entity label game logic Description Spawns a new copy of a custom group at given position rotation NOTE: this function is for more advanced users Paramaters (name - type - info) Custom Group - game logic - entity label for your group Description Captures all the local rotation/position data of all the entities in the label

    Multiplayer experience points

    Hi XXon, sorry I saw this a while ago and meant to reply sooner. The best way to do this is using Game storage (same place you make a leaderboard) but make a variable instead called experience with type number. This creates a separate variable for each player. You can access this like other variables. Here is an example of adding 10 XP every time a player kills something. Let me know if you have any questions
  12. Broccoli Tree House Building Aids A collection of useful tools and scripts to help with building complex creations in the editor (which can be blueprinted into explore) Above: An example of some things that can be created with these tools. This is an open-source project to help make building certain things easier. I'd like to see you build that miniature rollercoaster without scripts😜 My inspiration During the season 2 creator competition (you can find my submission here) I was faced two times needing a helix, once for a spiral staircase and once for a worm gear, the first one I made manually and the second one with script. Manually was not fun, and my script was terrible due to time pressure, so I decided to improve it after the competition. Later in the competition, I was creating an airship and it would have been really useful to be able to mirror the hull, (I had to settle on a less preferable shape due to this not being possible in ylands). A month later I have made good scripts for both of these problems(and more), but not everyone knows how to script so I want to share it publicly and also encourage other programmers to contribute. A summary of how it works For in-depth tutorials see below. Generating structures with scripts is very powerful. If you want to place a generated structure in the editor it requires exporting the scenario, loading it as a game, loading that game in the editor and saving the structure as a comp (a bit lengthy but it can be well worth it). My first helix generator during the composition required the individual entities to be welded (so that I could spawn a group like a section of the rollercoaster and edit the pivot of this group) which causes problems when you want to make a composition/blueprint out of them, it also stops you from welding the whole structure as one. Therefore the base of these building scripts is a custom group system that allows storing a set of entities and placing them at a given position/rotation. Most of the scripts make use of this, meaning that all entities spawned in are just entities, not welds) Current Features(summary) Custom group system create groups copy groups to given pos/rot set pos/rot Helixes regular helix helix along path Follow path Various Spheres and circles Mirror across any plane Laser measure tool Upcoming Features Here are some things I'd like to add but there is no guarantee I will. Elipse and ellipsoid generator rope generator n equidistant points on a sphere smoother version of follow path Contribute This is open-source, meaning it's encouraged that people to adapt and add to it. If you do not have the skills but you have an idea contact me and ill see about adding it. If you have a building script or you made some changes that you think would help people, DM me here or on discord and Ill see about adding it to this main version. Discord: O1iver#5816 Tutorials(WIP) If you are using the Source version each Instruction/Function has a description of how to use it in the function definition.

    Stubborn bubbles!

    This title sounds like the name of an update XD
  14. Hi, I am getting the following variable creation window inside a Controller Logic. This obviously causes problems because you cant define a variable type. Iv also experienced not being able to open this variable editor window. Restarting game seems to fix it. EDIT: exiting to main menu also seams to fix it. EDIT2: I noticed that basically the whole script editor acts as if your in any other logic, in the screen shot you can see, for example that the entities category is available. output_log.txt output_log_clean.txt

    Dev Diary #199 Feedback Fur-ever!

    Perhaps we should have (another?) pet design contest, people could make sketches or build a large scale one in ylands.
