That’s rad. Congraluations on the release?

How are you handling movement? Pathfinding and raycasting, or another method? I’m working on a general point&click example template for the engine, but haven’t found a method I feel is “perfect”

Hi Silver-Streak, thank you!
Yes, I´m just using pathfinding limited by hidden collisions in some screens, and pathfinding that responds only to a particular area in others, so Steve moves in that particular area without limitation… I really don´t know if it´s “perfect”, but it works and responds very well.
I’m sorry, but my English is not very good, so it’s a bit difficult to explain something so technical…
If I can help in something else let me know!

That makes sense. Would you be willing to share your movement events?

Hi, of course!

“senssteve” is the area where Steve is goint to walk. Then there are some collisions that limit his movement in Y.
This is the tutorial I saw for this code. Is in portugues but the code is there. I changed it but is the base…
Tutorial 1

Tutorial 2

Hope this can help you!

Thanks!

As mentioned, I’m trying to build out a template for the examples list that new users can use to learn to make a point and click adventure game.

I’m trying to replicate Adventure Game Studio/Unity Adventure Creator/Classic game movement behavior, where if you click outside of the “walkable area”, your character still moves as far as they can in that direction.

Due to some issues with inverted raycasting (It detects multiple collision boxes on the same object as different objects), I’ve not found a great way yet to replicate this type of movement, so currently I’m only allowing movement if the destination is clicked within the valid walking area.

Your events gives me some ideas that I’ll play around with this weekend. Thanks again!
