A platform is a block that Beta or any other character can stand on. Platforms are a good way to implement structure in your game design.
You can build columns [ col ] and rows [ row ] of platforms in order to quickly implement large numbers of platforms.
Building with [ platform ]Edit
To add a platform type the following into the terminal:
- add platform
To add a column [ col ] of platform's type:
- col platform 0 10 5
To add a row of platform's type:
- row platform 0 10 5
What are those numbers in the 'col' and 'row' commands?
The 0 10 5 in the [ col ] and [ row ] commands are 'x y length'. The 0 is for the starting x point, the 5 is the starting y point, the 10 is for length.
Customizing a [ platform ]Edit
You can use the [ get ] and [ set ] commands to get and set all your platform characteristics. Here's an example of using the [ set ] command to change the angle, height, width, and skin of your platform:
- set platform1_1 angle:60 height:210 width:140 skin:redBlock
[ get ] and [ set ] are very important to know in order to customize your game design, make sure to read our wiki entries about them in the codePop library section.
Running a [ get ] shows you 32 characteristics of a platform that you can change. These are listed below:
