Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

That's how you set up random values.

Just set the range for the random values, probably integer, and set conditions for which spawn points it will use.

Based on your question and the nodes I'm seeing, you're wanting a random effect, with both location of spawn and number of spawned fishies.

Perhaps you could start by randomizing the delay. Use the float randomizer and set the range to something like .3 to 1.

Set up branches, using the randomized values as conditions. For example, your randomized range could be 0-4, using a randomized integer.

Branch 1: check if random value is 0. True: no spawn. False: go to next branch

Branch 2: check if random value is 1. True: spawn at location 1. False, go to next branch.

You see where I'm going. Let me know if this achieves what you're wanting.

If you're wanting to spawn multiple fishes, duplicate the system and have it come out of an already-active spawn node. Then you'd have 2 randomized fishes at once. Keep going for as many as you want, and in conjunction with the randomized delay, you should have a pretty random effect.

okay this is what ive got so far and and they spawning from all points using delays and branches which is good step in the right direction, but how do i bring it all together using the random stream so its completely random of how they spawn, so the spawning pattern is random and not using delays all the time, or else the player will find it easy to catch the fish.

okay so i just added the random stream and used the in range float, seems to be working :). now i need to figure how to randomise the speed of the character alt text

Awesome, glad to hear it!

Also, if you're having trouble with the speed, make a new question and I'll be happy to check it out :)
