Interesting concept. Any particular area that you’re stuck on?
The shape painter would do the drawing.
You could use the input object to get the text
There are various text manipulation expression. You can go through the text with something like strAt (get a character from a text) using a variable for the position. And setting the result into a variable.
You might use the repeat event length of text times
Then use a bunch of conditions to handle the rules for each character.
I know I make it sound easy. This is just an initial big picture without knowing all of the rules that it uses.
That’s a real interesting idea. I might one day try it myself.
Hi! Thank you so much for taking interest in this concept. One of the things I am stuck at is, I discovered how to draw a forward line writing “F” in the text input, but it won’t draw a line each time I write “F” inside the input, making it imposible to give it a set of instructions that sum themselves.
Is “strAt” like regexp? I think with regular expressions I would be able to handle it? Sorry If I don’t understand your ideas at first, you are much more advanced than me.
Anyway, the shape painter doesn’t make for good platforms. I am working on a new version with squares and the result is very interesting.
I will post the result of that new experiment and if you want, I’ll send the link to you as well
If it was something too time consuming, you’d probably want to us the same concept but once per frame because it could appear to lock up otherwise. The repeat doesn’t have a way to exit and nothing else gets updated while it’s looping. You could increment the variable each frame while a boolean was true or false and then add a button or mouse click as a way to cancel it.
