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"

Rising stairs?

I'm making a puzzle game where there is a set of stairs that rises from the ground, and i'm not sure on how to do this. I would also like it to be customisable. So far i've got a simple construction script that lets me choose the amount of steps. as well as distance.

As well as a system that changes the height of the stair,

although i don't think that the construction script can't be changed once the game is running. Is there a workaround to this?

Thank you!

Create a custom event instead and hook up the script there. Have the constructor call that event. And then you can call that event again while the game is running, too.

I tried doing what you said and it does work, although when the stairs are activated, they don't move, but instead it creates a new set of steps for every frame.

Lol don't call the construction function every tick :)
