I was working on a node-based path plugin, but I may just try something with this instead. Thanks!

@unlikely

I made this plugin for storing/retrieving a group of instances in event sheet. It could be an input/output for other plugins.

For example, a kind of "filter" (plugin) will get instances from a (instance) group, do some computing, then put the result in another (instance) group.
So that user could get the result group to do their jobs in event sheet.

I'll need to define an api for this purpose.rexrainbow2012-03-02 04:53:57

Yes, I see.

I'm still trying to figure out the best way to implement a path (not pathfinding, just path) system. I have started working on a plugin, but I am not sure I can get it to do exactly what I want. I'm also not sure precisely how to implement it, whether it be simply an array of points that also contain information about smoothness of the path there and relative speed adjustments, or something more simple.

I guess ideally I would have a path object with nodes that define the path and how the path is parametrized... I could ask the path for the position at a specific "time" along the path--a parametrized curve.

Sorry, I don't know if any of that ramble made sense, but that is my goal.unlikely2012-03-02 04:59:17

@unlikely

I made Zigzag behavior before. It used a LOGO-like script to describe a path, like "F 100;R 60".

Ah, yes, that looks fairly close to essentially what I'm after. It's not exactly what would be ideal in my situation, but it will certainly be helpful--I'll check it out. Thank you!

Update:

- Add missing expression description.
- Add "private group" feature to simulate private group of instance. Using "expression: PrivateGroup" to get private group name when getting a group. See the first post for more detail.rexrainbow2012-03-03 09:23:24
