Top-down cube thingy

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sun Feb 03, 2013 11:25 pm

I have this idea, there is this huge cube with rooms in it. If the player gets to the edge, the cube rotates and there are more rooms. In one of the rooms there is a grate that lets you go down a level, deeper into the cube. How would I make/code so that the cube works like that and it randomly generates whats inside of the rooms?



Thanks, Terraria

@Whiteclaws
It's okay to ask for global directions, he's not asking to code the whole game for him...
Btw nice idea, I loved the "Cube" movielemo2013-02-04 20:47:16

I am brand new to coding, no idea what language either. That is why I'm just asking for some tips or some lessons maybe to help me make my game.

Do the tutorials and read the forums. You need to get the basics before you ask very generalized questions. There is no language, you don't have to write any code. You just use events and actions. Go through the beginner tutorials will give you enough to start asking more specific questions.

Wow, @Whiteclaws, no wonder people here don't consider you a people person. He just asked for an idea on how to do something.

@Terraria, what you are asking for is pretty complex. It's a good idea to start off a little smaller. The rotating is pretty tough, as it requires distorting of sprites, etc. Moving through levels is easier, but still not the easiest thing.

@Ashley and Tom,
This is an open request to have Whiteclaws banned from the forums for good.
He has not complied with members requests to behave with civility.

@Auntie Val,

I'm afraid I counter your request. I do not believe English is Whiteclaws' first language... not sure if that's right. Maybe he honestly doesn't know how blunt and patronising he sounds. He sounds harsh, but means well. I've seen Whiteclaws help many people over the last year, and can imagine many people not getting help over the next year if he's banned.

Sorry Andy,
But white claws actually has a very firm grip on the English language. He is also very aware that his attitude is offending people. Despite being warned he still persists. That's quite sweet that you are so forgiving, however new forum members may not be as forgiving as you. They may be offended, and they may never come back. This is no time in this software's phase of development to be chasing off customers. I'd suggest that if he wants to stay he can simply answer peoples questions yet leave his sarcastic commentary and his exclamation points to his self.
