How to add to and update a List of Text?
« on: May 01, 2019, 03:11:19 AM »
In the game, I would like to have a list of things that the player has done.  Examples: "Player picked thing up."  "Player went over here."  The list would support about 16 slots.  How do I do this?  I have experience with Unity and Playmaker, but I haven't done much with text at all.

Now the tricky part.  When the player does the first thing, it should appear on the top of the list.  When the player does the next thing the text appears underneath.  Next thing, text appears underneath.  Etc...  When all 16 slots are full... the top text disappears, and all other text bump up a slot to make room for the next thing.  And this continues.

So... I've experimented with creating this manually, it's a mess.  Is there a tool or a shortcut or a magic program called list maker?  How do I even begin to do this right?

ANY thoughts are greatly appreciated.
