Feature Requests / Array Get Random Weighted
« on: March 21, 2019, 02:25:53 PM »

I had an idea for a super useful action for both array maker and built in arrays.

A random Array action that has a curve to determine the weighting of the random.

For example if you had 5 items in the array but you want to randomly select more of the lower value items (if sorted by value) you could great a curve that favors the lower values.


Playmaker Bug Reporting / In editor FSM variables tab issue
« on: February 27, 2019, 03:08:42 AM »

I have recently been running into an issue where if you are in the FSM variables tab and you play the game in editor, keyboard inputs don't work. Switching to say the FSM state tab and hitting play results in the inputs working.

Note - I'm using the Get Key From String action to get the keyboard inputs

Not a big deal, just annoying/weird

Playmaker Help / FSM - STOP
« on: July 24, 2017, 07:36:13 PM »

Ever since I updated my project to Unity 5.3 with Playmaker 1.8 (Latest version) I have had a weird behaviour where some of my FSMs will stop and randomly in a frame, this annoyingly will restart the FSM if it is set to reset on disable. If you have Reset on Disable off it can solve most of the issues except for Audio. I'm getting heaps of stop and starts on my audio when ever an fsm that has played audio stops. (see picture of FSM log)

What causes this stop?

Feature Requests / FSM Browser improvements
« on: September 19, 2016, 07:15:18 PM »

The FSM browser is great but it feels like it would be super useful if it could do more...

- Only show active/deactive FSMs
- Show warnings (ie could not find FSM is not an error and doesn't show up)

Feature Requests / References tab for FSM's
« on: August 09, 2016, 07:13:15 PM »
A quick idea that might be possible and would help debugging issues so much easier.

A reference tab, like variables it would have a list of the references in that FSM. ie if you set a property of a text mesh, that would be in the list with the number of references in that FSM. Activating a gameobject .. that game object would be in the list.

How possible is this?
And could this also work with Action used in an FSM

Feature Requests / State Groups
« on: June 24, 2016, 05:57:07 PM »
As well as the task manager idea, I have been thinking about how grouping of states could be handy. Visually and practically they make heaps of sense

Feature ideas -
 - Drag States into a Group
 - Groups auto size around states that are in the group
 - Name the group (see image)
 - Group comments (see image)
 - Ability to move the group like a state (click drag the group name bar)
 - Copy/Paste groups

Thoughts? is this even possible?

Feature Requests / Task manager
« on: June 06, 2016, 12:47:32 AM »
Just under 3 years ago I suggested a task manager feature that could be built into Playmaker. Users could place task actions and get a sudo warning about it - See the below image
How possible is this?

Any ideas?

Playmaker Help / Unity 5.3.4 Templates "Missing variable"[SOLVED]
« on: April 03, 2016, 10:42:00 PM »
I just updated from Unity 4.7 to 5.3.4 and I'm running into an issue where templates throw up a ton of errors "Missing variable" even though the variables exist and are hooked up, even after re-hooking them up.

Is this just me?!

General Discussion / Future IL2CPP support
« on: January 19, 2015, 02:43:57 PM »

Just wanted to make sure this is being considered as Apple will soon make it mandatory to support 64bit on iOS, unity are moving on support for 4.6

Will playmaker handle/support this?

Playmaker Help / Level Zones
« on: December 24, 2014, 03:39:49 AM »

I'm making a game where I load levels based on 10x10 sized(unity units) zones based on where the player is. So at anyone time there would be the current zone the player is in and 8 surrounding zones (See image) When the player moves out of this zone it will then load/unload the zones so there are 8 zones surrounding the new zone.

Any ideas on how to get these 8 zones and store them as gameobjects at runtime so I can manage the above system. Obviously I could manually assign them per zone, but that is A. a lot of work and B. could introduce errors on my part.

My current thinking so far is to Raycast a ray up, down,left,right and store the game objects it hits, if the collision is less than 10x10 I can also ray cast on the diagonals.

Thought id see if anyone had any better ideas before trying this.

Playmaker Bug Reporting / Easy2Save + array maker issue
« on: December 16, 2014, 03:47:59 AM »

Just updated to the latest Easy2Save (2.55) and get the following error using playmaker and array maker. I get the error when using the action 'Array list easy save'

I contacted Joel from Mookie and he said "you'll need to contact the developer of Arraymaker as the actions are built by them, not by us"
