Pull back to launch mechanic (Angry Birds, Golf, etc.)
« on: October 03, 2017, 11:21:19 AM »
Hi Everyone,

Has anyone built a 'pull back to launch' mechanic in Playmaker?

I have a vague idea of the theory but don't really know where to start practically. Ideally I need it for a top down camera setting in 2D or 3D, rather than left to right like Angry Birds.

I'm not necessarily looking for someone to build the whole thing but a nudge ibn the right direction would be great.

Many thanks,
Steve.

Hi,
There is a slingshot kit for playmaker on the asset store,

Maybe some of the samples on the Ecosystem can help

I saw it, but from reading the reviews I was a little hesitant to buy it.

There's a non-Playmaker mini golf game on the Asset Store for €3 so might buy that and see if I can understand the script enough to make it into an FSM.

I'll also give the Ecosystem a look.

Cheers.

Thanks krmko, I started watching that and it felt a bit too side-on catapult specific but I'll try and give it another watch.
