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"

How do I destroy different actor each time I hit the same key

Hi

I have a scene with over 100 objects. I need to set the file up so when I hit a key the 1st actor is destroyed, when I hit the same key a 2nd time the 2nd actor is destroyed, etc.

Currently I have to set a different key/modifier for each object which works but is not very efficient. is there a better way to do this?

Any suggestions, greatly appreciated

Thanks

You should put all your objects into an array. Then you can simply index the array and destroy each object. Starting with index 0, each time you press the button increment an integer variable that retrieves the array index from a "get" node. This way each button press adds 1 to the integer which will then retrieve the next object in the array and you can destroy the object after that.
