PlayMaker Help / [SOLVED]Programming Blood & Gore with Playmaker
« on: February 05, 2018, 06:36:46 AM »
I need some help about blood and gore.
Which actions I need to make it?

 I did a sample on firing bullets on the Ecosystem: search for "bullet" and filter by samples and you;'ll find a "Firing2d Bullet" which will show you how to do this basics of firing.



Thanks! I'll check.  ;)

Sorry, I did a mistake with 'Split', I confused you.

I mean how can I to make raycasts starting from the same point and after this set their rotation from the point them started?

I know about the Vector3 origin point of a raycast, but to rotate it so I can make my custom raycast presets?

I hope it is undestandable, I have some difficult to transpose my language meaning to english language.

Yes. for each side you can make a random int between 0 and the number for groups.
I do think it might be easier to use Array maker than the standard array.

You can find the array maker on the ecosystem and you can find some tutorials on the User Tutorials wiki page

But i will try to make a sample this week how to set this up.

I'm going to check the link. :)

Just another tip:
how can i set up a raycast preset which starts from the same point and "splits" itself increasing its range with the distance?

If you split in four and still do random positions, you still need to do the math so that they are not to close to each other.

I would use 6 arrays and make preset Raycast positions, so for each index you have a group of 6 Raycasts (6 arays)

Then select a random group index and use for each side (top left/top right/bottom left/bottom right) which would give some extra randomness than using 24 arrays and preset all of them at once.

You might need to use 'world: Self' or use a Vector 3 add, to position for each side.

I also think that preset positions are better for performance.

Btw, i am only suggesting things :)

Best is to play around and see what fits best for your project.

I don't know, I think the raycast preset is the 'eastiest' way to do this.
I'm not a programmer, I'm a graphic designer, I'm using Playmaker because I don't want to learn languages.

So as you saied it's possible add a little random influence in the preset metod?
It should be good.

Maybe have a certain range for each raycast, else you need to place each raycast position into an array an after each raycast you need to check if it is to close to another.

maybe use 4 fsms (top left/topright/bottomleft/bottomright) to split the raycasts.

or instead of random have preset positions in a list and get those(randomly per group) to do the raycasts?

Nope, the first emission mode is what i want to implement. So i need to split raycasts in 4 groups?

Try a search on the Ecosystem.
Look for Random Vector

You could also use 2 random floats and the use set vector 3 xyz

For looping this a certain times, you can use 'iterate'

The raycast to emit should be 24 at shoot, because the weapon uses two ammunition caliber 12.

So Iterate is needed to emit multiple raycast at time?

There should be a rule within too: the random emission of raycast has to have a maximum and minimum spread index, this to avoid rare case of 24 bullets shot too near each other.

I made a shotgun, now I need to know how to emit multiple raycast in different direction within a certain range.

Some help?

When i google i got this e-book @ the top and i red a bit and they talked to place that CM script, it is not a playmaker script so it is probably included with that e-book.

anyway you are probably better of with that tutorial :)
Thanks, I'm going to watch them right now. ;)

EDIT: I've got some problem, because I cannot use Smooth Look At Dir because I'm using spine, so I need Skeleton.FlipX, for this I had to use multiple nodes, because there's no way to do this in just one node. But I met problems to check the current direction where the controller moves towards.

I don't know how explain the issue better, but I need something who round the float variable, so if the Horizontal axis isn't pressed the variable immediately will be set to 0. Here instead it's not, infact the animation transition retards a bit because there's an interpolation in the variable where the Horizontal is stored.

I did a little research and i think that the 'Character motor' is a script that should be included with that e-book.

I would recommend looking to this this tutorials series instead :

Also you can find many other tutorials on the User Tutorial Wiki Page

So the CM is attached to an e-book?
Anyway I've seen the links, the content looks very usefull. Thank you!

I'm new here and in Playmaker.
I hope this won't be a silly question, but I need to make a Supermeat Boy-Like character controller with Playmaker.

I read here that is possible by using a character motor, which should have a hidden jump function.

I attach some pics of the prototype.

I found just the CharacterController, I never listened about CharacterMotor before I started using Playmaker.
What's the difference and how can I obtain CM?
